#TeenageOOTD - Stripes

3 Jun 2015 by Teenage

VENETIA SNG, SENIOR WRITER

This is my go-to lazy dress when I’m running out of ideas of what to wear. To avoid looking too sluggish, I wore it with my favourite neoprene jacket, pearl necklace and topped it off with a felt fedora. Casual yet not too dull at the same time!

Evenly vertical stripes aren’t that flattering on my form, so I like how these stripes alternate in width for a better visual fit. I paired the top with ripped light-wash jeans to mellow out the strong (IMO) print, and added in obviously colour-coordinated bag and shoes to smoothen out the entire look.

I’m always on the go so I need to be comfy but still presentable. I’m also slim and petite so I went with horizontal stripes to give the illusion that I’m a bit wider and finished the whole look with a pair of wedges.

Stripes are definitely my favourite type of print and I love how this striped top complements almost everything in my closet!  I chose to pair it with a quirky patterned skirt that adds a lil’ bit more character to my outfit, and rounded it off with black sandals in keeping with my overall theme of black and white.

#TeenageOOTD - Denim

26 May 2015 by Teenage

Denim started out as utilitarian wear but let the Teenage team give you an idea of how you can put a fashionable spin on these blues (and black actually). 

ARISSA HA, DEPUTY EDITOR

As the resident ninja (#AllBlackEverything for the win) in the office, it comes as no surprise when my choice of denim is also black. Gotta love Topshop for making their Leigh jeans super stretchy so it’s comfortable to wear even though it looks tight.

I’ve been a fan of double denim outfits since I-can’t-remember-when and when I spotted this co-ord at ASOS, I knew I had to get it. No matter if you’re dressing up with a pair of heels or dressing down with gladiator sandals, double denim makes everything look so effortlessly chic.

Honestly, this denim coat has been a love/hate purchase – I love that it isn’t too typical, but I hate that this piece is so hard to style because of it’s heavy material and slouchy lack of structure. Thus, I decided to throw it over a simple tank dress and stretch my proportions (because it’s at an dangerously unflattering length for my height) with a pair of wedged boots. One thing’s for sure though: this coat’s not coming out of my closet till cooler weather comes.

There’re so many different ways you can style the utilitarian denim button-down, but when you’re running late for school/work (coughs awkwardly), you just want to keep it simple. For a casual yet put-together look, I buttoned my denim shirt all the way to the top, tucked it in my go-to black skater skirt, and cinched the outfit with a pair of neutral booties. Viola!

Balmain And H&M

18 May 2015 by Venetia Sng

It’s official! Balmain is H&M’s next designer collaboration.

 

A video posted by H&M (@hm) on

Head designer, Olivier Rousteing, dropped the surprising news on the Billboard Music Awards red carpet. The designer arrived on the red carpet with models Jourdan Dunn and Kendall Jenner in tow, both wearing head-to-toe looks which everyone thought were by the French house. However, Rousteing took the opportunity to announce that the ensembles were actually a first look at Balmain’s upcoming collaboration with H&M.

 

A photo posted by H&M (@hm) on

“I want to talk to my generation: this is my main aim as a designer. H&M allows me the unique possibility of bringing everyone into the world of Balmain, getting a piece of the dream and creating a global #HMBalmaination: a movement of togetherness, fuelled on a hashtag. The collaboration felt extremely natural to me: H&M is a brand that everybody connects to. It calls for unity, and I am all for it.”

Olivier Rousteing

The collection will be available in stores on 5th November 2015. We can’t wait to view the full collection already! Are you as excited as we are? Let us know what you think of Balmain as H&M’s next collaboration!

#TeenageOOTD - Summer Frock

12 May 2015 by Venetia Sng

The heat is on! In case you’re out of ideas on how to dress stylishly without melting under the brutal sun these days, the Teenage team has some ideas for you. 

VENETIA SNG, SENIOR WRITER

I’m not a frilly frock kinda girl so this is my version of a summer dress. I paired it with a cropped jacket and added a belt to give the outfit a bit more shape. I seldom wear sandals but this black pair with blue lining fits the whole outfit so well, I just had to wear it.

Sometimes it’s all about finding the right balance – I built my outfit around this romantic midi skirt with panelling mesh detailing at the hem. To keep the floral prints in focus, I styled it with a plain tank, some cute sandals, and a striking statement piece that adds the perfect pop of colour to the look.

Floral patterns are an unanimous favourite for summer, but it doesn’t always have to be bold and bright – you can choose to wear it in subtle ways as well. I went with a simple white dress (every girl needs to have a little white dress in their wardrobe!) with delicate blooms, and paired it with a chunky sweater to prevent the outfit from looking overly sterile.

Every time I put on a sundress, I’m reminded of Barney Stinson’s (pervy) exclamation of how he couldn’t go eight months without seeing girls in sundresses. So as a precaution against any pervs, I chose to throw on an over-sized denim top over it, which also serves to balance out the ‘girliness’ of the dress.
