1. Neutrals can be interesting as well
As shown by Aimee Song, neutrals don’t have to equal to being boring. By layering different shades, cuts and textures, you can create a dynamic outfit from your camel, grey and white pieces.
2. Work a bold top
This year, aim to try and freshen up your wardrobe with a few boldly coloured pieces. If patterns and prints seem too daunting, try a bright pink or yellow to switch up your look. It gives you a more approachable look that’s vibrant and easy. Bella Koh’s way of grounding her fuchsia with white pants makes it an effortlessly cool look.
3. Pay attention to your jewellery
You may not have the entire jewellery store at your disposal, but take a page from Fann Wong’s style playbook and elevate your evening look with a pair of statement earrings.
4. Punch up your cosy knits
Do you permanently live in a cosy sweater or cardigan because the office central A/C is blasting on cold all day? Then use this opportunity to liven up your knit by looking for pieces in a graphic pattern. Jeanette Aw’s way of wearing it makes this a look that’s easy to emulate.
5. Weekend wear doesn't have to be sloppy
It’s going to be 2019 soon, so there should be no more excuses to look like you’re dressed for bed even when you’re walking around town on the weekend. Kate Pang’s sweater-and-denim combo is so easy to follow, and looks presentable and classy. If the sweater is too hot for your liking, swap it out for a dressy blouse.
6. Fully embrace atheleisure
NC Wong’s fluorescent sneakers might be a tad much for some, but we love how cool she’s made them look. When paired with a simple white tee and a black denim mini, it makes for an effortless look that can be worn everyday and to everywhere.
7. Print on print on print
This is definitely not for the faint of heart, but when done right, mixing three prints can be super stylish (just look at how chic Yoyo Cao is here!). The key to making this trend work for you is finding matching or complementary tones in each print. Here, the beige in the shirt and the skirt is accentuated by the brown in her jacket.
8. Never underestimate the power of a logo tee
Brand logos had a huge resurgence in 2018, and it doesn’t seem to be going away anytime soon. Savina Chai’s way of styling her logo tee is something you can reinterpret for yourself. Just add cargo pants and a pair of statement heels for that effortlessly modern look.
