Style how-to: Printed skirts

Posted by imageandme in Personal style for women, Style For Women

Matching plain bottoms to printed tops is often easier than doing it the other way around. Printed skirts, especially with lovely bright floral prints, make quite a statement and for that reason many of us limit ourselves to matching them with plain simple styles of tops in white, black or a neutral for fear of not doing it right. However, we want you to enjoy bright patterns this summer. Here are some ideas on what to match your printed skirts with: Idea 1: Match them with striped tops. Always works. Idea 2: Match them with sweatshirts. Elegant and practical for cold, air conditioned indoors in Singapore. Idea 3: Match them with crop tops. They are cute and trendy. Idea 4: Match them with graphic t-shirts. Cool ! Idea 5: Match them with a denim shirt. Can’t go wrong. Some more tips to pick the right skirt: 1. Avoid patterns that are too big for your bodytype (unless you love the drama of loud patterns). 2. Watch out for gathers or open pleats at areas that you don’t attention on. Closely gathered waistband adds volume, which might not be what you want if your tummy is your area of concern. For more advice on which patterns, prints, colours and styles…

Casual style like a celebrity

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

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: Do your casual shorts look stylish enough?

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…

Style ideas from the red carpet 2015

Posted by imageandme in Style For Women

The awards season is always exciting, especially for the new trends that emerge on the red carpet. Because we look for those little details that can help you enhance your style, here are the trends that especially caught our attention: 1. Ear cuffs: The trend started a couple of years ago and continues on the red carpet this year. Seen on many, but we loved Emma Stone ( and we love her anyway) the best, as she showed off the accessories with her hair tucked neatly back in a ponytail. For an interesting selection of Ear cuffs to buy, shop here.   2. Necklines: We are all about practical style and a functional wardrobe. So, although plunging necklines were popular and are great for a party look, we like the sheer illusion neckline on Keira Knightley’s dress, a variation that can be worn easily to suit our everyday non-celebrity lifestyle 😉   3.  Non traditional french manicures: Camila Alves gave a spin to the French manicure. For a more non traditional french manicure look, combine the negative space nail trend with the French manicure.   4. Hair Braids: Effortless hair ! We all want that. This hair trend suits us just fine if the only effort we need to put in…

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…
