1. Break it up with a belt
Jeanette Aw looks picture perfect lounging by the blue ocean waters in a bright teal dress, but we love that she’s decided to use a blue belt to help break up all that colour. Plus, the blue belt sits higher up on her waistline so it gives her the illusion of longer legs.
2. Pick different variations of the same colour
Ya Hui’s pistachio-coloured suit is a great look to cop, and we loved that she chose different shades of pistachio to give this look more depth.
3. Accessorise white with gold
There is something incredibly beautiful about pairing an all-white ensemble with gold jewellery. It exudes a kind of luxury that feels timeless, elegant and super chic.
4. Play into a vibe
Certain monochromatic colours give you a certain feeling, so find accessories that play up those characteristics. For example, Hong Ling’s khaki-coloured jumpsuit has a utilitarian-glam kind of look, so pairing it with a pair of black combat boots work.
5. Carry a colourful bag
Choose a bag in a complimentary colour to help you break up your outfit. Here, Rebecca Lim’s bright orange kate spade new york cross-body sling bag becomes the star of her outfit because it stands out against the baby pink dress she’s wearing.
6. Think texture
Carrie Wong’s LBD isn’t just your regular black little number, especially when it features prominent studded detailing. Plus, the gorgeous shoulder bag helps to nail the look with its sweet-yet-edgy heart-and-star studs.
7. Get whimsical
Tong Bing Yu’s Khoon Hoi dress is a great example of how you can use quirky details to help you look good. Featuring bright fruity patches and gemstones, it helps break up the lemony yellow colour, and adds a stronger focal point.
