Look 1: At First Blush


Complement a pink dress with accessories in neutral tones like brown and beige.

Who would have thought fashion’s love affair with pink would be so enduring? Typically associated with girlishness and femininity, in recent years pink has become a symbol of feminine power and strength for women all over the world.

This brings us to this pink short-sleeved dress from La Trendz that comes with a sash that can be tied in any way you like. Elevate this getup by pulling on a pair of neutral tone heels like this head-turning mid-calf high heeled Deludith boots from Aldo, and a classic brown leather Coevo bucket bag from The Bonia House, that’s perfect for daily use.

Last but not least, complete your ensemble with this eye-catching green turquoise Marc by Marc Jacobs sunglasses from Better Vision.


Look 2: Living in Yellow


For yellow dresses that are bold and bright, go for beige, cream, orange and brown accoutrements.

From Rihanna’s 2015 Guo Pei Met Gala dress to Amal Clooney‘s 2018 Stella McCartney royal wedding gown, we’ve continually seen yellow associated with popular and likable people. Two years later and yellow dresses are still popping up, like daffodils blooming in spring.

With its notch collar with buttons and pleats detailing, this mustard dress from Peniwern is the epitome of a throw-on-and-go piece that demands nothing but gives everything. For a pair of matching footwear that provides comfortable elevation without compromising on style, give yourself a little height boost with these gorgeous brown Mauma wedge sandals from Aldo.

When it comes to accessories, we like to keep it simple to avoid overdoing it. So let your styling prowess speak for itself by finishing the look with a pair dual geometric earrings from M)phosis, and a cute pair of sunnies like these Coach sunglasses from Better Vision.


Look 3: Back to Black


Pair sneakers with your black dress to add street elements to a feminine look.

The iconic little black dress made famous by Coco Chanel has now become an essential to every women’s wardrobe. Classic, bohemian or sophisticated, each woman possesses at least one version of the traditional black dress like this black sleeveless layered dress from The Underground.

The perks of this timeless piece? It can be worn day or night, on any occasion, from casual to formal. How? Thanks to the accessories you choose, your goals will be achieved!

For example, if you’re looking to play tourist around our sunny island, match it with a colourful pair of Drathis sneakers from Aldo to keep your feet feeling cushy and happy. Still on comfort, there’s nothing more practical than a hands-free bag especially when you’re out and about. Finish off your look with this yellow hip pack from Osaka Owl, and create an air of mystery with a pair of sleek frames like these tinted sunglasses in beige from Owndays.
