This month top lifestyle destination Shangri-la Plaza hosted its latest fashion fete, Shang Style Spectrum Fashion Show: “Everyday Chic“, at the East Wing Atrium and yours truly was invited to cover the event!
My current schedule usually involves going to the office and attending events afterwards. I commute and carrying along a laptop, not to mention the erratic weather, so it is important for me to wear clothes that can easily transition from day to night. Confused as I am? The Shang Style Spectrum fashion show’s runway was graced by the chicest looks from big name local and global brands that everyone should be wearing right now!
The clever and contemporary take on styles inspired by bygone eras, Modern Retro is making its way as the biggest fashion influence this season. Brands Anne Klein, Banana Republic, Debenhams, DKNY, G2000, Juicy Couture, Original Penguin and Superdry, present printed and textured, high-waisted and flared pieces that inject that coveted retro vibe into your modern wardrobe.
Consistently carefree, effortless, and really pretty, it’s not hard to see why Boho has a captured a large part of our fashion heart. I’m a fan of Aeropostale (where I bought my pretty brown boots <3) and Mango! Along with Desigual and Old Navy, fill your closet with luxurious caftans, flowing maxi dresses, bell-sleeved blouses, flare, fringe, floral, and faux fur for charming ensembles that look gracefully put together.
Fitness continues its moment in fashion, and whether or not you’re a gym buff, you won’t be able to help but want to dress like one soon enough. Modern Athletics is still at the top of its game, and J Lindenberg, Lacoste, Regatta, and Topshop, have all the updated sporty riffs – athletic dresses, graphic prints, and sheer panels – that turn everyday wear into active ones.
A sartorial theme that has caught many a fashionista’s eye is Urban Chic, the elevated streetwear style. A/X, CK Jeans, Gap, Kenneth Cole, Muji, Springfield, Topman, True Religion, and Versace present edgy, asphalt-ready looks that let you hit the pavement this season in sleek, new streetwear that can stop traffic.
Capping off this trend round-up, fashion has fallen for the mystical far East. Marks & Spencer and Rustan’s showcase Oriental influences, referencing the luxury and excess of ancient empires. Dress up in opalescent fabrics, and pieces carrying traditional motifs and kimono cuts and detailing to add a dose of glamour and mystery to your daily sartorial statements.
I bet you can guess my personal style – a mix of urban chic, oriental and boho! Hehe :p
I love that each ensemble is simple to pull off, use either a classic piece or a chic dress, and can be paired with flats too! Not to mention adding an accessory or putting your hair down can make it a whole different look. Updating my wardrobe is long overdue and with these style inspirations, I now have a better idea what to invest on. 🙂
