When we think of floral print, instantly we think of Spring. Cuz what else can be more perfect than floral patterns to associate our outfits with the Cherry Blossom season?

But now, floral prints can be worn for any season, depending on the colors, fabric and print you pick! You’ve probably noticed that one of the massive trend in A/W 16 is floral prints. So, you can now literally don your favourite floral pieces 24/7 and nobody is gonna judge you!

When it comes to buying clothes, yes I do love trendy pieces but I love to invest in clothes with versatility even more. This shows why I picked this black floral dress as the colour and length gives me the ease to cruise into any occasion and season effortlessly. All I have to do is jazz up with different accessories.

I bought this maxi last December during a Zara sales and I got to say I get a great deal for such an amazing quality! This maxi dress which crafted with super lightweight and airy fabric is great for the scorching hot weather and also a perfect piece for layering during the cosy season. it comes with two layers. The inner layer is a simple scoop neck spaghetti short bodycon dress. While the outer-layer which crafted with sheer chiffon is shaped in a form of ruffle neck, sleeveless bodice, and a billowy high low maxi skirt with some ruffle hem. Oh dear, ruffle my weakness how can I not purchase this frock!  (if you’ve come across my previous posts, you’ll know how much I’m obsessed with them!)

Not to forget the highlight of this dress is the beautiful roses that dancing all over the black backdrop, instantly injects whimsical and romantic accents!

Another thing I’m totally vibin’ over this frock is the sheer chiffon that shows off my legs without really bearing it all. Creates that peekaboo style and make my legs look slender tho.

For this look, instead of being dressy from head to toe. I teamed it with my crisp white Adidas Super Star instead of heels. I then finished off this look with a pink mini chain crossbody.

Fashion is What You Buy. Style is What You Do With It

 

It’s Ruffle, Baby

If you have come across fashion weeks, or trend reports you probably notice that it is difficult for us to find a fashion runway that didn’t feature a little bit of flounce. So, if you’re still hesitate whether you should get your hands on, you should definitely give it a try!

Last year, ruffles were widely to be seen on dresses or chiffon blouse, but this season they were presented in unusual fabrications such as sweaters, leather skirts, or even the on the classic button down shirt.

Ruffles have the tendency to be feminine, romantic, and a little bit dressed up.  For this look, I’ve decided to combine the eye-catching statement piece (ruffle button down shirt) with a basic (skinny jeans) to create that perfect balance. To inject a sense of edge, I wore a statement belt, and carried a chain crossbody.

The ruffle button shirt – I fell for this ruffle shirt at first sight and decided to purchase it for my graduation. This white button down shirt is versatile as you can easily dress it up and down depending on the occasion. And thanks to its ruffles and small cutout detailing on the back, this elevated button down shirt is definitely an eye-catcher and balances between being basic but yet a statement piece.
