How to Rock Androgynous Fashion

Going somewhere chilly for the year-end holidays? Take style cues from these TV stars and real-life sisters, Emma and Cha Cha Maembong.

For Autumn/Winter 2016, French fashion label ELLE collaborated with Paris Tamara Taichman, Editor of ELLE Magazine, to design a collection of relaxed silhouettes that is street style-savvy. It combines and revives the stylish eras of the ‘20s made famous by Coco Chanel and the masculine ‘60s (think button-down shirts, sharp blazers and top hats) popularised by Yves Saint Laurent.

Not sure how to take on the androgynous style? Fret not. Let the stylish wardrobes of celeb sisters Emma and Cha Cha Maembong inspire you as they’re dressed to impress in ELLE’s latest collection, Parisian Closet. With two distinct individual styles, take your cues from either sister for a different French-inspired mood every day.

 

Emma Maembong

Though Emma is often known for her girl-next-door style and personality, here, she makes a statement in a versatile trench coat styled with matching hijab and chinoz, complete with a pair of brogues for that dash of masculinity.

Cha Cha Maembong 

Always up to date with the latest trends, Cha Cha gravitates towards bolder looks but is seen here in a trés-chic trench coat paired with classic black pumps that emanate a subdued sexiness while looking effortlessly elegant.

More style tips:

  1. A simple trench coat or coat in a camel-coloured palette is great on its own, but you can easily take it up a notch with girlie, nonchalant accessories.
  2. A dapper pair of oxfords is your instant formula for rocking a masculine-meets-street-style wear.
  3. Less is more. Avoid over-accessorising by selecting one main piece before heading out the door for a minimalistic appeal.
  4. For the ultimate Parisian style, complete your look with a structured tote and a pair of cat-eye sunnies!
