Style Upgrade
Hit the Style Refresh Button

 Need a style upgrade to revamp your wardrobe? Hit the style refresh button with these 5 ideas from the likes of Issa, Richard Nicoll, Chalayan, Aquilano.Rimondi, Herve Leger, and more!

Shorts are undoubtedly the staple go-to piece of clothing to wear on those hot and humid days. They could be a short micro version or a baggy fit, even a fluid knee-length culottes counts. Instead of pairing it with your usual favourites, try on a tailored top, something with texture perhaps, or a structured blouse. Whatever it is, keep those cotton tees at home.

You might be overwhelmed by the plethora of prints available each season. In contrast, what goes under the radar are the fabrics, textured fabrics to be exact. Tweed, bouclé, mesh, or lace, they run the gamut. Here’s a beautiful matelassé jacquard dress that we have taken a keen liking to, because fabrics are more than just printed, matte or shiny.

A shirt dress is more than a shirt dress with Aquilano.Rimondi onboard. You may or may not need another tailored white shirt but a printed silk shirt dress might fit into your wardrobe just fine. This one comes in a multi-colour with contrast detailing and an unassuming frog print for added panache. The floral appliqué is just icing on the cake.

Who said anything about sheer tops being a big no-no in the office? The rule here is to wear a matching camisole underneath and keep your bottoms simple. Still not feeling modest enough? Layer with a cardigan or throw a jacket over your shoulders. A broderie anglaise top with just enough coverage is your best bet. Just don’t do a Kris Jenner and wear sheer pants.

The knit top is one versatile and comfy number for when you want to dress down. An easy choice for women on the go and warm enough for the air-conditioned indoors, update your typical knit top with this embellished sequin Peter Pan collar top from N21. Match it with a sleek pencil skirt and you’ll be channeling a simple-chic look in an instant.
