If you are busy at work during the week, nothing is more relaxing than slipping into something comfortable over the weekend. However, its hard to keep track when you let your casual style get out of hand and slip from relaxed and comfortable to sloppy and very much the same from one casual day to another, till one day you discover that your casual wear does not match up to your style needs. This is where we come in and give you ideas on how you can take your casual wardrobe a lift. Below are some celebrity casual styles that we picked for you to get inspired. 1. Get into a comfortable dress that is stylish too. Look for design details that give personality to the dress – a special neckline or hemline or waist detail .     Our pick:    2. Trousers are hot for the Singapore weather but there are alternatives. Look for lighter natural materials like good cotton or silk blends. We found silk joggers to be a smart option that works almost for all body types as well.       Our pick:   3. Shorts are great but don’t limit yourself to the denim ones. Pair different…

Style how-to: Culottes and Gauchos for work and play

Posted by imageandme in Corporate Style, Online shopping, Shopping in Singapore, Style For Women

Elsa Schiaparelli, the italian designer who is credited with the use of shocking pink, coloured zippers on dresses, embroidered shirts, wrapped turbans, pompom-rimmed hats, the “wedge” heel, has also to her credit the creation of the culottes, which she wore in 1931 and shocked everyone. (More on this innovative, bold designer’s story, read here). Culottes or Gauchos, Gauchos or culottes…??? For general information, let’s clarify the difference between Gauchos and Culottes. While Culottes are knee-length, divided skirts, Gauchos end slightly mid-calf or just below and don’t look so much like a skirt but cropped pants. However, the terms are used interchangeably and that works just fine. So Culottes are back and these part skirt, part pants are not only practical but look very chic too. Especially good news for ladies who would like to give their trouser routine a change, so here are some style ideas that you should give a try. 1. For formal workwear: A culotte suit for work wear looks smart when paired with a shirt and jacket. Been seeing some polished versions of these around in CBD. Professional women always face the dilemma of working out how to look powerful without looking too manly. Here is how – Victoria Beckham is…

Trendy and comfortable! Why not try these shoes ?

Posted by imageandme in Corporate Style, Online shopping, Style For Women

While in Milan earlier this month, we saw stylish Milanese women sporting a variety of sporty shoes from cool sneakers to loafers to ankle boots, all of these, of course, flat or with a little bit of heel. The most chic of them all was a style that not many women consider wearing, mostly being unsure about its formality level and right combinations. We are talking about the Oxfords! Traditionally, oxfords are plain leather shoes with closed lacing considered suitable mostly for the most formal occasions. Oxfords now are however seen in variety of materials like calf leather, patent, suede or canvas. (The Oxfords with perforations forming a pattern are known as brogues.) Oxfords are not only the guy’s shoes but extremely popular with women too. In Singapore, you will see this shoe worn mostly by men, especially for work wear. But these are not just men’s shoes and not just for the ‘creative types’. With women complaining about the discomfort of heels, the oxfords are classic and comfortable, hence can be a great addition to your wardrobe. We show you different ways of pairing the oxfords: 1. For work, enhance your professional image by pairing these with straight or tapered skirt or pair it with tapered or…

Wardrobe staple: the versatile shirt dress

Posted by imageandme in Online shopping, Style For Women

Shirt dresses first became popular in 1950s, with Dior’s post world war II New Look.  The shirt dress had a defined silhouette that included full skirts and cinched-in waists, notched collars and elbow length sleeves with cuffs. Creating an impression of a lengthened shirt that can be loose or tied in at the waist with a belt, the simplistic shirt dress style constitutes a staple wardrobe basic. We look at how this versatile fashion basic can be worn in many variations. 1. Distinctive features – collars, cuffs and pockets define the shirt dress. A neutral shade dress paired with a tan belt and some accessories that add the shine to lift the combination. Wear this in the day for casual meetings or to run errands. The soft fabric creates a drape that is comfortable and easy. 2. Known as shirtwaister, the shirt dress with a separate bodice and skirt was made popular by Doris Day and still remain a popular choice for pretty and feminine looks . Seen on Eva Mendes, a feminine version with a flowing skirt and a belt to create shape. The polka dots add dimension to the pretty look. Change the mood with bolder prints, patterns and lengths….

Trend 2014 – How to wear metallics

Posted by imageandme in Online shopping, shopping tips in Singapore, Style For Women

We love metallics. Add a metallic detail in any form to your look and you take the look from ordinary to luxe. As the metallic trend continues in 2014, here are some ideas on how you can wear metallics. 1. Don’t be afraid to wear it in the day. Pair metallic with denim. Below is an example of a skirt with design details woven in metallic thread paired with a denim shirt for a stylish casual look. Team this with a black or navy bag with gold buckles and keep the footwear simple. 2. For a bolder day look,  go for a completely metallic skirt in jacquard with a t-shirt top. Yes it works and the combination of different textures makes the look very interesting.   3. Match a metallic patterned trouser with a simple black top. Very chic.   4. Use metal accessories to elevate the effect of neutrals. Pair shiny gold or silver with black, whites, grey or beige and see the outfit come to life.   Below are some style ideas of how celebrities have done metallics in the past: Bold metallics worn by Elle Macpherson (note the gold accessories paired with the silver) and Nicole Richie…
