Pondering hard for your week’s #OOTD? Your planning just got easier with these 12 bangin’ outfit inspirations!
CHIEW YE (@CHIEWYE_)
Have an important event to attend this week? Draw inspiration from Chiew Ye who struts with confidence in a pair of wide-legged culottes and a flowy blouse. Keeping to her blend of earthy neutrals cobbles a look that screams sophisticated chic, effortlessly.
VALERIE WANG (@VALERIE_WANG)
Need we say more? This is the booming trend where workout clothes are worn at every setting possible and it is perfect for your laid-back days when comfort triumphs everything else. Pair your usual joggers with a structured leather jacket to give that otherwise informal outfit a sharp edge.
MELODY TAN (@MEOWIIE)
Orange You Glad It’s Fall?
Fall is the season of layering and despite the warm weather in Singapore, Melody shows us how you can still rock the fall fashion trends by pairing together a silk emerald slip dress with pleated ends and a black mesh blouse. The light but luxe fabrics are perfect layering pieces to create a look that’s totally Vogue-worthy.
MONGCHIN YEOH (@MONGABONG)
Perks of living in Singapore include being able to dress like its summer all year round. This red kimono dress filled with tropical prints like palm leaves is perfect for a brunch date with your girlfriends. Mongchin pairs her ensemble with flats for a daytime romp but you can glam the outfit up with a pair of stilettos, letting this piece take you from day to night.
AUDREY LIM (@AUDREYXAUDREY)
White wide-legged culotte – this time made to look more casual and relaxed with a beige – is a versatile piece that goes with almost everything. Audrey keeps her accessories simple yet chic with a black statement belt, loafers and mini bucket bag to look effortlessly put together.
SOPHIA CHONG (@SOPHIACHONG)
Sophia displays her own take on the denim-on-denim look by pairing light-wash jeans with a studded denim jacket. She includes little touches like a metal chain belt and studded ankle boots, infusing her own style in an otherwise simple outfit.
LOUIS KARWAI (@CLKARWAI)
Men fashion trends for F/W 17 includes darker neutral tones than typical summer hues. Moss green, grey and navy blues are common colours that are easy to pair while keeping to the Fall palette. Louis combines an army green shirt with black ripped jeans and shoes – safe yet stylish choices that’ll bring you from the classroom to an adventure outdoors.
ANDREA CHONG (@DREACHONG)
When it comes to stylish outfits, we can always count on Andrea. Sticking to the three-colour palette rule, she pairs a black camisole with a white slit skirt and pointed-toe heels as well as a matching caramel-brown cardigan and bag. These are what Sundays are made of.
BENJAMIN KHENG (@BENJAMINKHENG)
The Formal Sleepwear
Rocking one of the staple trends in F/W 17, Benjamin dons an oversized, statement silk shirt with ripped jeans and a cowboy hat. At first glance, it might seem like a popular musician standing in his PJs but take a closer look and you will notice how Ben works the piece by injecting a casual element into an otherwise overly formal outfit without overdoing it – achieving the perfect balance between both styles.
GEORGE WONG (@GEORGE_WZ)
The sporty luxe look has proliferated our generation due to its comfort and effortless styling. George pairs a preppy navy blue shirt with grey sweatpants and white sneakers while keeping his accessories simple. With a simple ensemble like this, there is really no reason to look sloppy the next time you go for class or anywhere that doesn’t require much dress up.
Overalls are definitely back in trend after the break it took from the mid-90s. Daniel puts on a black ripped denim overalls and paired it with a printed monochrome muscle tee. Keeping the palettes consistent, he accessorises it with a snapback of similar tones. A gold watch and a pair of black loafers help give a polished look to the grunge-laden outfit.
’90s grunge fashion is still in trend and that means torn and tattered graphic tees are too. Loose fitting and comfy, pair your T-shirt with jeans like Benjamin does. You can either choose to go creative with your accessories (to express yourself like it’s the ’90s) or pare it down for an understated everyday outfit.

With Halloween falling on a Tuesday, you can’t exactly head to school or work dressed up in full costumed glory (we’re sure your lecturers won’t take too kindly with Pennywise showing up). So for those who haven’t had enough of dressing up, we’ve gathered a list of kinda discreet but still awesome pop culture characters you can dress up as on this not-so-average weekday, using clothes you already have from your wardrobe!
#1 Fetus Plastic aka Cady Heron (Mean Girls)
Donning her first-ever ‘On Wednesdays we wear pink’ outfit, Cady made the choice of pairing Damien’s oversized pink polo tee over some super baggy jeans. While you won’t score fashion points with this ‘do, you’ll definitely score four (or more) candy canes in our burn book!
#2 Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt
Ah Kimmy Schmidt, the breakout star of the Indiana Mole Women and one strong as hell female. Channel the “hashbrown: no filter” Kimmy with her bright clothing and even brighter light up shoes! Bonus points for your costume if your BFF shows up as Kimmy’s roommate and all-round diva, Titus Andromedon.
#3 Walter White (Breaking Bad)
From mild mannered chemistry professor to murderous kingpin, Walter White schools us all with his transformation as the titular character of Breaking Bad. Wanna know what’s cooking? Slip on yellow from head to toe (and a kickass moustache for good measure) and head to the science lab.
#4 Eleven (Stranger Things)
With Stranger Things 2 swinging back in session, Eleven’s iconic get up is more relevant than ever. You don’t have to sport a buzz cut for this costume (kudos if you do!), but wandering around with boxes of Eggos (waffles) and a faux nosebleed might make your costume all the more recognisable. And bring it up a notch by getting your pals to dress up as the rest of the Stranger Things kids – Will, Mike, Dustin and Lucas!
#5 ‘You Belong With Me’ Taylor Swift in ‘Look What You Made Me Do’
With the rumours of a squad fallout following the updated Junior Jewels tee that ‘You Belong With Me’ Taylor sported in ‘Look What You Made Me Do’, all this super easy costume requires are your doodling skills and ability to head to school clad in PJs. You can even deck the shirt with your own squad names – just don’t leave anyone out like Taylor did!
#6 Laura aka X-23 (Logan)
The breakout star of the heartbreaking film that was Logan, Laura (the cloned daughter of Wolverine himself) is a total badass despite her relatively harmless looking appearance. While her outfit is pretty run of the mill, you might have some trouble replicating her adamantium claws; may we suggest chopsticks dipped in ketchup instead?
#7 Diane Nguyen (Bojack Horseman)
Although Diane may seem like a nondescript character as compared to the rest on this list, this writer and third wave feminist (and Bojack’s closest friend) will definitely be recognised by Bojack Horseman fans alike. After all, where would the show be without Diane’s spunky spirit and wise advice?
#8 Morty (Rick & Morty)
The grandson of the reckless genius scientist Rick Sanchez, Morty Smith plays the naive but morally grounded sidekick to Rick’s crazy and self-destructive nature. Dressing up as Rick (complete with lab coat and drool) may warrant a few stares, but Morty will blend in seamlessly with any crowd, as his character is created to be.
#9 Baby Driver
Starring Ansel Elgort, Baby Driver revolves around Baby – a getaway driver who’s constantly plugged into his iPod thanks to a car accident that left him with tinnitus. It’s pretty easy to dress up as Baby; simply shrug on a varsity jacket, white T-shirt and jeans. Not forgetting his ever-present shades and earpiece!
#10 Jessica Jones
Hard-hitting private eye, unwilling superhero and overall badass, Jessica Jones is definitely our favourite on this list. Gear up with a rugged leather jacket – to keep the elements at bay and look totally cool while fighting baddies – and a trusty camera to capture any suspicious movements while on the job.
#11 Jughead (Riverdale)
Jughead Jones may seem like your average angsty teen at first glance, but there’s way more to this hamburger and murder mystery-loving dude than meets the eye. To channel Riverdale’s very own sleuth, DIY your very own crown beanie. Simply take a dark-coloured beanie, fold it up and create jagged crown-like cuts along the entire brim.
#12 Belle (Beauty and the Beast)
A tale as old as time never goes out of style, and neither will looking like one of Disney’s main princesses. Instead of tackling Belle’s classic yellow ball gown, opt for the easier-to-achieve ‘village Belle’ instead. Simply hunt for a simple blue pinafore (or crop denim top and flowy skirt combo) and wear it over a basic white long-sleeved tee. To get the 2017 live-action remake outfit down pat, attach a checkered-print kitchen towel to the front of your dress, tie your hair in a ponytail and slip into a pair of brown boots; belting out songs are totally optional.
