It's the details which bring an outfit to life. A pair of simple black heels are transformed with just the touch of a bow adorning it. Seemingly "casual" jeans make a much greater impact when you see the iconic black-and-white striped pattern printed across it. And, the most surprising of all, a white tank-top breaks down the illusion of minimalism when you suddenly notice the intricate lace concoction carefully done on the back. It's the details which take a seemingly simple ensemble to a different level. It was this concept which fueled my latest outfit post, which I had the pleasure of shooting at ION Orchard (one of Singapore's most well-known malls) with the lovely photographer Sophie Hackett.
At first, I was almost apprehensive to don the vibrant pair of pants gifted to me by the seriously amazing blog shop, Smooch the Label. My only fear was that the print was exceptionally vibrant and would clash with the flow of beachwear-esque clothing you can find all around Singapore; but this turned out to be the best thing about it. The pants definitely caught a few stares around the Orchard area, but the looks were of awe. On days when I aim to make a chic statement, I would opt for these stunning pants, because of the versatility it holds. While my outfit was on the luxurious side, it could have easily been dressed down for an everyday look. Paired with the pants were items that were less eye-catching but just as charming. My light Dorothy Perkins clutch, in a rose-like hue, has been become a wardrobe essential. With it's oversized quality and subtle silver detail, it is compatible with almost any look, making it ideal. As for the top, it is a typical A&F creation and it seemed like it was perfect for any sort of shorts + tee kind-of-day but the beautiful addition of lace (it's all in the details!) took the top to an exceptional level. To top off the look, I wore my favorite new pair of Melissa shoes, courtesy of the incredible brand, as it has an undeniable combination – being adorable and elegant, all at the same time. Anyone seeking shoes, whether its a gift or a treat to yourself, head over to Melissa shoes now.
It was another rainy afternoon in Singapore but the typical weather situation had its advantage – my moderately bold outfit stood out amongst the greenery and ambiance behind me, highlighting the details which made the outfit unique in the first place.
