Ever woke up feeling a little uninspired? If you have, then we have just the thing to set you in the right mood as you step out to conquer the day. Korean fashion brand, Mixxo has just released its latest Spring 2018 collection and we’re in love with all the floral motifs, pastel hues, puffy sleeves and tweed textured outfits. Amalina Anuar lists down some of her faves and how she’d style these outfits for a day-to-night look.
1. Chic Office Look
Who says office wear needs to be plain and boring? Pastels have a calming effect and can brighten up anyone’s day, including your own. For starters, opt for a head-to-toe pastel look with a structured blazer and a pair of trousers in the same tone. Have your white buttoned-down shirt tucked into your trousers to keep the overall look balanced and if you’d like to perk up your look a little, go for a pair of silver geometric danglers and have your hair tied up into a ponytail or bun.
2. Sunday Funday!
On Sundays, everything is meant to be laid-back and my best pick would be a pinafore dress! To pull off this look, all you need to do is layer it on top of a buttoned-down shirt (it doesn’t have to be plain cos you can pair your pinafore with a polka dot top or ruffled sheer blouse too!), slip on a pair of sneakers and you’re good to go!
3. Movie Date
Bring out your uttermost feminine side when you’re out with your better half or GFs! Believe me, ruffles and florals combined are indeed a match made in style heaven. Just pair your ruffled floral blouse with a deconstructed denim skirt and let the ruffles act as an ‘accessory’ to complete your look. Tip: keep your accessories (necklace and earrings) simple and opt for dainty pieces instead of huge, chunky ones to bring out that elegant, feminine side of you.
4. Blush In Pastels
Thanks to the latest SS18 runway shows, we’re finally convinced that including colours into our daily wear might not be a bad idea after all. If colours are something new to you, then start small by investing in an oversized lilac blazer that you can use from day-to-night. Pair it with a blouse that comes in a lighter blue and have it tucked into your high-waisted jeans for a casual, flirty look.
5. For The Love Of Tweed
To date, the tweed jacket is still high on my list of favourites. Instead of wearing one tweed piece, why not opt for two? I love to flaunt my boss-like persona in the office on days when I’m feeling a little under the weather, so the best way to go about doing this is by sporting a head-to-toe tweed look with a touch of pearls. It not only showcases elegance but also brings out your confidence, and people around you will get the message that you’re not someone they can mess around with!
