Trendspotting: Two Colours to Look Out For

This season, we cast our eyes on two colours that exude an air of maturity and refined gentleness to add to our wardrobes and accessories shelves. Sage green – a colour that produces a refreshing, sophisticated matureness, and pastel lavender – which gives a feminine impression with a gentle presence. These soft colours work great with many colours and add a touch of modernity to your style.

Which do you prefer?

# 01 Sage Green
Understated elegance

Feminine, silhouette tops in sage green balances the sweet image and brings out a factor of modernity. Match them with a white skirt for a quiet charm, and pair the outfit with a patterned bag to create a more distinct character for the image you want to portray. Walk this outfit out with a pair of neutral-coloured ballet pumps for a casual weekend brunch, or wedges for a simple movie date.

How to Pair with Glasses

If the overall coordination is light-coloured, it is recommended to use dark-coloured frames to complement the whole look. If you select a delicate design and a gold-coloured metal pair of spectacles, you can create a light and elegant impression. For a more edgy look, check out the classic Boston type frame with a vintage feel. With the trendy Boston shape eyewear, you can achieve a modern finish with a soft look.

# 02 Pastel Lavender
Natural and sheer

Feminine pastel lavender is put together in a relaxed style to give off a sheer sweet impression that is not too overpowering. Layering long shirts over basic tops and pants can help to lengthen the torso. This colour works great with natural colours such as beige and white, and with that, you can put forth a unique modern style of your own.

How to Pair with Glasses

Hexagonal shaped frames seem like they’re going to stay for a while longer, and we’re not surprised! Combining roundness with straight lines, this eyewear style is the best of both worlds as it complements many face shapes, even those who are averse to round spectacle frames. This current hot seller comes in one of the most versatile and popular colours – rose gold – and forms a lovely combination with pastel lavender. For a mature look, try wearing a pair of metal frame glasses that adds a slight sparkle to your eyes. The simple yet playful frame design is perfect for a comfortable style on laidback days.

Sometimes, your outfit can speak louder than words. See how these 3 outfits let your personality or mood shine through.

Whether it is a conscious effort or not, there are occasions where your personality shines through, your clothes, that is. Perhaps you’re like us – you have that one outfit for the chill, off-days when you want to look and feel relaxed, or that favourite loud jacket you wear on days you feel chirpy and aren’t afraid of some extra attention.

We spoke with our 2019 Brand Ambassador, Mediacorp 987 DJ, Kimberly Wang (@ohhowstrange), on how style can speak one’s mood and also heard about how she styles herself based on different moods.

1. Powered Up

On days you have an important meeting and you want that extra boost of confidence. You feel pumped up to start the day and conquer whatever comes your way.

For Kimberly, it starts off with her power colour, pink. A sharp, clean-cut jacket in a bright hue of pink layered over a simple white top, paired with tailored white pants for that power walk.

Accessorize with a solid shape bag and add the final touch with a distinctive pair of shades as a statement piece.

Kimberly on her #PoweredUp look:

“Bring up your cool-factor by putting on a pair of shades with your suit. Adds a little mystery and sass as well. You can also choose to match your eyewear with the colour of your suit, for instance pink-on-pink will look really nice too!”

Assemble your own power getup with a strong colour and a pair of edgy sunglasses. A pair of polygonal shaped frame, or mirror lenses are two examples of what we will consider!

2. Lazy

On those days you gather all your willpower not to hit the snooze button for the 8th time in the morning. It is that outfit you pull out from your wardrobe with familiarity, grab your essentials, including a pair of sunglasses to cover the sleepiness from your eyes, and rush out of house after gulping down your morning coffee.

Close friends and family can instantly guess your mood when they see you in this outfit, only because they have seen you in it countless times.

Kimberly’s secret to conquering lazy days:

“When sticking to casual wear, I tend to open for a pair of eyewear that is more eye catching so it can be the centre or attention. Also gives you instant plus points for style on a late-day.”

No time or energy for styling? Kimberly’s tip on an eye-catching pair of eyewear is a perfect way to hide the laziness and amp up your style.

3. Preppy

Preppy style has made a comeback and gained a fair bit of attention recently, appearing on runways and the front of store displays. Like many others, we love some preppy style from time to time. However, this look has had some evolution, and while it still breathes an air of exclusivity and prestige, the nuances lie in the patterns, colours, and how they are put together in one getup.

Kimberly’s version of preppy comes in the form of a wholesome, clean look. She opts for a turtle-neck top with hair neatly straightened and swept to the side, well-defined brows with large metal frame glasses to accentuate that studious look.

Kimberly’s thoughts on her interpretation of preppy:

“Glasses as an accessory? Check! Bring a dose of preppy-chic to your meetings or even on a date. I like this pair cause it’s both fashionable and functional – super lightweight!”

Gone are the days when glasses were for those with eye care needs. People now opt to wear glasses to protect their eyes from digital screens’ blue light or ultraviolet (UV) rays from sunlight. Some simply wear them as accessories to complete their look. 

Complete your preppy-chic look with large metal frames, but choose the shape wisely so as to complement your face shape.
