Posted by imageandme in shop in singapore, Shopping in Singapore, shopping tips in Singapore, Style For Women

It’s easy to slip into shorts on your day-off. It’s so practical. However, most women also find this casual style option a little bit too laid back, get frustrated of their style routine and are not sure of how they can enhance it without giving up the comfort of shorts. Here are a few style tips to glamourise your casual shorts look: 1. No more dull pairing of shorts and t-shirts. Comfort is key but some interesting accessory details, can take the shorts and t-shirt look from undergroomed to effortlessly chic. Just a simple detail of a watch and a ring or necklace, whichever you prefer, matched footwear that is not Havaianas or Birkenstock, will do wonders.   2. Not so keen on fussing with the accessories? Then playing with shorts in different prints and colours could be an alternative. Pair them with blouses with some embroidery or print detail. Just a simple shirt tucked into the shorts, is chic and smart.    3. Smarten up the knee length shorts: Stylish bermudas are out there ! When styled with even a simple top/blouse, it can be so sexy. On your next shopping trip, skip the knee length shorts of the Gap variety and look for…

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…

Make-up looks to try this party season

Posted by imageandme in shop in singapore, Shopping in Singapore, shopping tips in Singapore, Style For Women

Planning your look for the party season? You might have given a lot of thought to what you would like to wear, here are some ideas of make-up looks that you can try to match the mood. 1. Try a glitter liner just above your black eyeliner to add some sparkle.     2. Try glitter eye shadow for a combination of smokey and sparkle. For a very bold statement, try glitter eye shadow with diamante eyelashes, like Katy Perry. 3. If glitter is not something you feel so comfortable with then go for a little sheen with , right at the corner of your eyes to make them brighter and lift the look to match your party outfit. See it here on Blake Lively and Olivia Wilde.     4. If heavy make-up does not work for your eyes, highlight your lips. Play it up by lightening up the eyes and adding a strong dark colour to the lips. This look works better for those with fuller lips. A strong lip colour in a maroon or deep red works both for women with dark or light hair colour. See it below like Camille Belle and Emma Stone. Shop in…

How to wear a brooch like a celebrity

Posted by imageandme in shop in singapore, Shopping in Singapore, Style For Women

In our last post we mentioned style icon Wallis Simpson’s stylish accessory – a statement brooch. Everyone is doing the statement necklace or the statement ring. Differentiate your style and  make a statement with a brooch. Why not ! These celebrities are doing it and doing it really well. Besides wearing a brooch on the lapel of a jacket or a plain top, here are some fun alternatives to use this jewelry in a trendy way: 1. Dress up the neckline of a top or a dress like Blake Lively who wears a whimsical brooch to suit her whimsical personal style. 2. Glam up the back of a halter top or dress like Nicole Kidman did in this creative way. 3. We really love the way Anne Faris adds an interesting brooch detail at the back of the dress, creating a trendy outfit. 4. With some color and texture, Sarah Jessica adds fun to her chic style, in this combination. 5. This party season, whether you are going for simple elegance or a glamorous look, try incorporating a brooch into your hairstyle. For someone who has lots of neutrals in the wardrobe, we will definitely be trying one of these…
