Here's How You Can Look Like An Off-Duty Celeb

22 Nov 2017 by Isabel Pang

Don’t let the crushing workload that comes with being a student on assignment deadlines squash your swag. The next time you’re thinking of rolling up to lectures clad in your most presentable sleepwear, take some inspiration from these jet-setting celebs and recreate their killer off-duty styles. 

Pop of Colour

Zendaya

A baggy muscle tank and ripped jeans would be considered dressed down were it not for the spicy pop of reds from Zendaya’s top and platform heels. If rocking sky high pumps aren’t your thing, swop ’em out for a pair of classic sneakers, making sure to accessorise with a statement necklace for an extra oomph. 

Baggy Silhouettes

Rihanna

Rihanna pairs a slouchy hoodie with a structured outerwear (worn off-shoulder of course) to add a hint of shape to her outfit. She keeps it simple by accessorising with high socks and white strappy sneakers.

Solid Colours

Gigi-Hadid

Reaching for solid coloured pieces are way easier for lazy days with no time to fret over your outfit. Gigi Hadid pairs her all-black jeans and T-shirt combo with subtle metallic accessories to create a classy look with minimal effort. For a complete ‘dressed down yet chic’ look, slip on a comfortable pair of sneakers. 

Graphic Tees

IU

Plain T-shirts can hold any casual outfit together, and they’re also the best to grab if you’re running late. Upgrade your t shirts with fun prints like IU did with cactus graphics so you can still look fashionably cute even on those hasty days. 

Strategic Accessories

Cara-Delevingne

We’re all familiar with the typical sleeveless tops and denim shorts that most teenagers reach for, but this dressed down look doesn’t have to be boring. Be strategic with your accessories – Cara wore chunky high cut Nike’s and a bright red beanie that injects her fun personality and draws attention away from the standard outfit.

Denim

Selena-Gomez

Dress down days are synonymous with jeans – you can even pull off a sophisticated look with the right cuts! Selena Gomez looks extra leggy with bootcut denim jeans and platforms that elevate an otherwise basic pullover. Pull your hair back into a ponytail to save time on styling your mane and let a pair of glam hoop earrings do their thing. 

Cover Up

Blazer

Lee Sung-Kyung layers on a long wooly sweater over a white crew neck and black denim shorts, instantly turning a beach-day outfit to a getup that’s good for hitting the town. Even Miranda Kerr knows the magic of throwing a blazer over a casual outfit.  

Little Black Dress

Taylor-Swift

The fashion classic doesn’t have to be a skin tight situation. For those lazy days, a black loose-fitted T-shirt dress or a skater dress will go with any accessory and shoes – don’t have to worry about mismatched tops and bottoms, the LBD makes those ‘I just rolled out of bed’ days so much simpler.

What are some of your favourite lazy day outfits?

Fashion Inspirations For Your Next Outfit

19 Nov 2017 by Lynette Goh

Need a dose of fashion inspiration for the upcoming week? Here are five outfits that can be easily recreated with the basic pieces you have in your wardrobe. Have fun!

AIMEE SONG (@songofstyle

 

A post shared by Aimee Song (@songofstyle) on Nov 15, 2017 at 10:52pm PST

We aren’t quite done with autumnal palettes yet and Aimee’s favourite shades for fall are ours too! Her combination of earthy understated hues: a beige nude knit pullover, well-tailered terracotta pants and nude flats makes for an ensemble that will bring you from street to fleek in an instant. 

CLAIRE MARSHALL (@heyclaire)

Need to upscale a casual outfit? There’s nothing a cute bag can’t fix. Claire’s rocking grunge with an oversized muscle tee tucked into vintage high-waist jeans and grey boots, but balances the tough look with her mini classic Chloe bag that adds a whole new level of chic. 

NARELLE KHENG (@narellekheng)

 

A post shared by relle (@narellekheng) on Nov 1, 2017 at 10:53pm PDT

Looking exquisite with a statement back lace blouse (complete with ruffles and puffy sleeves), Narelle ditches the run-of-the-mill options and opts for a rugged brown skirt with frayed hems to offset her otherwise too elaborate ensemble. Throw in a pair of gold shades and she’s all set. 

BRIANNA WONG (@briannawonggg)

 

A post shared by Brianna W. (@briannawonggg) on Oct 25, 2017 at 7:06am PDT

Look preppy and cute with this red polka-dot top that’s from The Closet Lover, a company co-founded by Brianna and her sister. The millennial entrepreneur wears it with a pair of denim jeans and white sneakers, keeping her accessories minimal to draw attention to the eye-catching piece instead.

JOYCE (@joycesayshello)

 

A post shared by Joyce (@joycesayshello) on Oct 21, 2017 at 5:58am PDT

Pants-day need not be boring when you’ve got these redwood flare pants. Joyce pairs it with a knit crop top, but we think this versatile piece will match well with anything, be it a sleek button-up or a casual camisole. You can keep the outfit simple with minimal accessories, or glam it up with some arm candy and a necklace. Either way, these trousers will take you from day to night easily.
