FAVOURITE OUTFITS OF 2017- PLUS TIPS & TRICKS ON HOW I STYLED THEM!

HEY LOVES! I’M FINALLY BACK & READY FOR A NEW YEAR WITH Y’ALL. HOPE YOU ALL HAD A GREAT NEW YEAR! FOR MY FIRST BLOG POST OF 2018, I JUST WANTED TO DO A QUICK ROUND-UP OF MY FAVOURITE OUTFITS FROM LAST YEAR! HOPEFULLY THESE OUTFITS WILL GIVE YOU SOME INSPO ON HOW TO PUT CERTAIN PIECES & STYLES TOGETHER TO MAKE A COMPLETE ENSEMBLE. I USUALLY GET A LOT OF QUESTIONS ON HOW I STYLE MY OUTFITS, SO THAT’S WHY I THOUGHT IT’D BE BENEFICIAL TO YOU GUYS ALL IN ONE QUICK POST.

BTW, I PUT SOME JOT NOTES FOR WHAT MAKES EACH OUTFIT SPECIAL, WHETHER IT BE THE COLOURS, TEXTURES OR CERTAIN STYLES PUT TOGETHER ETC. 

I HOPE YOU ENJOY <3

  • MIX EYE-CATCHING COLOURS TOGETHER LIKE TEAL & GOLD
  • IF THE OUTFIT IS PLAIN (DRESS & SANDALS) ADD A STATEMENT PIECE LIKE AN OVERSIZED PENDANT-TYPE NECKLACE; KEEPS THE LOOK SIMPLE YET BRINGS OUT A STATEMENT

  • PAIRED THIS EASY & FUN MAXI DRESS WITH SOME BRAIDED (YET SO COMFY) GLADIATOR SANDALS
  • ALTHOUGH THE DRESS HAS A REALLY STRONG PRINT, I THOUGHT IT’D BE FUN TO WEAR THESE SANDALS (IN A NEUTRAL COLOUR) TO AMP UP THE OUTFIT JUST A NOTCH, WITHOUT TAKING THE EYE AWAY TOO TOO MUCH FROM THE FLORAL

  • I LOVE PLAYING WITH COLOUR, ESPECIALLY SHADES THAT I PERSONALLY THINK REALLY GO WELL TOGETHER- THIS AMBER/GOLD DRESS WITH THE BURGUNDY FAUX FUR COAT LOOKED REALLY BEAUTIFUL WHEN PAIRED
  • I ADDED A PAIR OF LACE- UP HEELS TO KEEP IT MORE “FANCY” WITH THE COLOUR BEING OF A CLOSER SHADE TO MY DRESS TO KEEP THE EYE CONNECTED IN A MORE ELONGATED FASHION (HOPEFULLY THAT MAKES SOME SENSE LOL!)
  • USED A EMBELLISHED LITTLE MINAUDIERE TO ADD A BIT OF FLARE TO THE OVERALL OUTFIT & IN-KEEPING WITH THE “FANCY” ATTIRE OVERALL

  • ON DAYS WHERE I WANT TO BE EXTRA COMFY BUT ULTRA STYLISH, I LIKE TO PAIR LEATHER LEGGINGS WITH A LONGER FLOWY TOP
  • I PERSONALLY LOVE JACKETS, THEY’RE ONE OF MY FAVOURITE THINGS TO PURCHASE, SO WHENEVER I CAN AMP UP AN OUTFIT, I LOVE GRABBING A STATEMENT PIECE LIKE THIS TO THROW OVER (SOUTH-ASIAN BOUTIQUE) 
  • ADDED A SIMPLE PAIR OF EXAGGERATED BOW-TIE LOAFERS (ZARA) TO COMPLETE THIS LOOK BECAUSE THE COAT & LEGGINGS WERE A BIT OF A STATEMENT ALREADY; THIS TOUCH TONES DOWN THE OUTFIT JUST A TAD WITHOUT TAKING AWAY FROM THE OVERALL LOOK

  • CABBY HATS ARE ALL THE RAGE. ON COLD NIGHTS LIKE THIS, I LOVE ADDING A HAT IN ORDER TO COMPLETE MY OUTFIT
  • THE CHUNKY TURTLENECK KNIT (H&M) PAIRED WITH THE HIGH-WASTED EMBELLISHED TASSEL JEANS (TOPSHOP) REALLY COMPLIMENTED EACHOTHER. THE OUTFIT WAS SO COMFY (EVEN THOUGH I KNOW IT PROBABLY DOESN’T LOOK IT) AND FOR ME, THE TASSELS AND THE KNIT JUST SCREAM STYLISH ALL THE WHILE BEING EFFORTLESS FOR SOME REASON
  • BECAUSE THE EMBELLISHMENT AT THE BOTTOM OF THE JEANS HIT AROUND MY ANKLE, I PAIRED THIS OUTFIT WITH A GREAT PAIR OF BLACK KITTEN HEEL ANKLE BOOTS

  • INSTEAD OF JUST HAVING A NEUTRAL ENSEMBLE (ALL BLACK EVERYTHING & A PAIR OF JEANS) I ADDED A HINT OF COLOUR BY TOSSING THIS GREEN WOOL CABBY HAT (FOREVER21) ON
  • TO GIVE THE OUTFIT A BIT OF A BREAK FROM WHAT SEPARATES THE TOP PART (ALL BLACK) FROM THE BOTTOM AREA, I ADDED A THRIFTED VELVET FLORAL BELT- PERSONALLY I THINK IT GAVE THE EYE A BIT MORE TO LOOK AT

 

26609842_10159735431665612_350426543_o

  • WORE THIS NUDE BODYSUIT (FOREVER21) WITH A VERY DARING WHITE (YES WHITE!) SKIRT
  • WORE PLATFORM SANDALS (WINNERS) WHICH MADE MY LEGS EVEN MORE ELONGATED (ALONG WITH THE FACT THAT I WAS WEARING A SKIRT) 
  • ADDED A BIT OF FLARE WITH THE BLACK WAIST BELT (URBAN PLANET)- AGAIN BREAKS THE OUTFIT IN TWO SEPARATE PARTS
  • ACCESSORIZED WITH THIS CIRCULAR BLACK STRAW BAG (ZARA)

 

26610175_10159735431640612_255461918_o

  • WORE THIS BOLD STRIPED BURGUNDY JUMPSUIT FOR A NICE STROLL IN DOWNTOWN TORONTO
  • WORE SLIP-ON SANDALS TO MAKE SURE THAT MY OUTFIT LOOKED “BREATHABLE” ALL THE WHILE STAYING COMFY (YOU CAN SEE I ABSOLUTELY AM IN LOVE WITH COMFORT!)
  • ADDED A BLUE LEATHER MINI FRINGE BAG TO COMPLIMENT THE BURGUNDY (AGAIN, I LOVE TO PLAY WITH COLOUR! DON’T BE AFRAID TO DO THIS!)

 

26610523_10159735431370612_265011707_o

  • WITH THIS OUTFIT, I PLAYED WITH DIFFERENT TEXTURES AND ADDED TWO DIFFERENT STATEMENT COLOURS- YELLOW & RED
  • SUEDE, LEATHER & SATIN MATERIALS WERE ALL MESHED INTO THIS ENSEMBLE 
  • A LOT GOING ON IN THIS OUTFIT, BUT AGAIN I TONED IT DOWN WITH THE OFF-WHITE/ALMOST BEIGE PAPER-BAG TROUSERS WHICH GIVES THE EYE A BIT OF A “BREAK” FROM ALL THAT’S HAPPENING 

 

26612895_10159735431565612_577958832_o

  • WENT TO A FAMILY BBQ IN THIS OUTFIT (LOL! I’M SO EXTRA) 
  • WORE THESE HIGH-WAISTED FLARED PANTS (ALMOST JEGGING LIKE MATERIAL) WITH THIS BRIGHT FIERY ORANGE-RED SWEATER WITH EXAGGERATED SLEEVES WHICH I THOUGHT WOULD BE A NICE CONTRAST, COLOUR-WISE
  • BLACK MULES ADDED TO TONE IT DOWN WHILE ALSO MAKING SURE MY FEET COULD “BREATHE” 
  • MULES ALSO HAD A FRAYED ELEMENT TO THEM WHICH LOOKED GREAT WITH THE FRAYED HEM ON THE PANTS 

 

26613750_10159735432090612_478512577_o

  • THIS OUTFIT WAS SO SIMPLE- BOHO MAXI DRESS (WINNERS), THREW ON A LEATHER JACKET (ZARA) & SOME SLIP-ONS AND I WAS OUT THE DOOR!
  • MADE SURE TO WEAR MY BLACK CABBY HAT (NINE WEST) AS IT WAS GETTING A BIT CHILLY! IN GENERAL THOUGH, I ALWAYS ADD A HAT IN ORDER TO AMP UP ANY AND EVERY OUTFIT

 

26638324_10159735431375612_1955777059_n

  • STRIPED NAVY PANTS & FAUX FUR- TWO SEPARATE STATEMENT PIECES; ONE GREAT ENSEMBLE
  • KITTEN HEEL ANKLE BOOTS (ZARA)- THE POINT OF THE BOOTS ADD A BIT OF STRUCTURE TO THE LOOK
  • THE FAUX FUR JACKET IS STRUCTURED BUT NOT TOO STRUCTURED (IF THAT MAKES SENSE) SO THE BOOTIES REALLY ADD A LITTLE SOMETHING SOMETHING TO THE OUTFIT; OVERALL GIVES A NICE SILHOUETTE
  • LACE CAMI’S LIKE THIS ONE FROM MANGO, ARE MY FAV. TO PAIR WITH ANY STATEMENT JACKET (FOREVER21)!
  • WHEN GOING TO A REALLY COOL FASHION-BASED EVENT, I LIKE TO MAKE SURE I’M WEARING SOMETHING THAT MAKES A STATEMENT OR IS SOMEWHAT OF A CONVERSATION STARTER -> JEWELRY LIKE THESE DROP-BALL EARRINGS (FOREVER21)

 

26653378_10159735431405612_633130539_o

  • WENT TO TORONTO MEN’S FASHION WEEK LOOKING LIKE THIS!
  • TONS OF TEXTURE & COLOURS GOING ON AT THE SAME TIME (WHICH I LOVE!)
  • SO MANY THINGS TO LOOK AT ALL AT ONCE- OVERALL JUST EYE-CATCHING
  • MY FAVOURITE PAIR OF MULES (ZARA)- MULTICOLOURED FRINGE; ADDS THAT TEXTURED LOOK ALONG WITH THE VELVET BLAZER (BERSHKA) & METALLIC BRONZE PANTS (URBAN OUTFITTERS)
  • I USUALLY DON’T REALLY PUT TWO STATEMENT PIECES OF JEWELRY TOGETHER BUT FOR THIS EVENT, I OPTED FOR BIG & BOLD OVERALL 

 

26654917_10159735431560612_1540719818_o

  • THIS IS MY BRUNCHIN’ WITH BAE OUTFIT
  • VOLUMINOUS OFF-THE-SHOULDER BLOUSE (BOOHOO) PAIRED WITH METALLIC HIGH-WAISTED PANTS (TOPSHOP)
  • SINCE I WORE PRETTY PLAIN COLOURS ON MY FEET AND TOP HALF OF MY BODY, I MADE SURE TO WEAR THESE METALLIC BLUSH PINK PANTS TO MAKE THE OVERALL OUTFIT- EVERYONE LOVED IT!

 

26655135_10159735431360612_889640760_o

  • A FEW WEEKS AGO, I WORE THIS TO A FRIEND’S POP-UP SHOP / HOLIDAY PARTY 
  • FOR EVENTS LIKE THIS, I LIKE TO WEAR SOMETHING A BIT MORE FESTIVE; FOR ME THIS MEANS LOOKING ALL GLAM & SPARKLY!
  • WORE THIS SPARKLY BLACK JUMPSUIT RIDDLED WITH METALLIC GOLD THREAD (FOREVER 21) UNDERNEATH ONE OF MY FAVOURITE TAUPE-COLOURED FAUX FUR JACKETS (WINNERS, BRAND: CAROLINA BELLE)
  • SINCE SO MUCH WAS GOING ON AMONG THE WHOLE UPPER & EVEN BOTTOM PART OF MY BODY, I WORE THESE NUDE MULES SO THAT MOST OF THE ATTENTION WOULD BE ON THE JACKET & JUMPSUIT
