Topping The Trends

  • SumoMe

Ohh la. Trends are tricky but if you play your cards right, it’s all smooth sailing for you on high waves of fashion this fall/winter season. We share some tips on topping the trends!

Rachel-Marie J

We picked 3 looks that capture the alternative sides of the fashion forward girl who dares to flaunt but still has her feet still on the ground. We prefer to play the trends, if you know what we mean. Find your favourite style and stand to win shopping vouchers courtesy of online boutique, Perry Amber too!

Look #1 – Androgyny

About A Boy



She’s got the look, she’s got the physique and she’s more polished than the tom boys. While they toss on ill-fitting jeans and the first baggy tee the find, the androgynous girl frames herself with a skinny-cut business blouse or an attractive vintage tee. Yup, the boys are back! She looks for flattering cuts and selects jewellery that becomes her personal signature. Feminising the tomboy style is a gradual and meticulous process but she makes it look effortless.

Look #2 – Prints On Parade 

On Parade



This girl gets edgy.  She wears prints with an admirable confidence and accessorizes with offbeat elegance and vintage charm. She greets the day with glamour that deserves the approving attention it gets from eager eyes on the streets. The bold have the privilege to choose from a kaleidoscope of prints; from tiny palettes of flowers to large silhouettes of broken glass. This girl pairs prints up with tasteful simplicity and soon enough, she knows she’s got it.


Look #3 – Bold and Beautiful

Bold & Beautiful

Bold & Beautiful by pennysdaybook featuring yellow gold jewelry

The conventional ones would stick with neutral or reserved shades like black, brown, and navy. But this season’s for the trendsetter who craves vivacity in her days and length in her imagination. She carefully selects  a core top and trousers or skirt in a single colour and throws in colour with a scarf or cardigan. She keeps the hues in balance and makes her outfit pop!

And so the deal gets sweeter…
