5 Celebrity Styles with Cardigan

Remember when cardigans were only worn by grannies? Not anymore.
Not only is granny chic becoming a trend, designers have also revived the cardigan trend 
y experimenting with cuts, fabrics, textures, prints and colour palettes. 
In short, the sky's the limit when it comes to wearing cardigans.
So before I go stock up on cardigans, I thought I'd share how these 5 celebrities rocked theirs:

1. Megan Fox


Megan Fox made neutrals sexy by pairing her grey Fluxus long-tab cardigan 
with a sleek black tank top and floral leggings. 
Her aviator shades (I swear, the girl goes everywhere in them!) 
complete the slouchy weekend chic look.
Steal her look: jazz up neutrals with prints or, if you want to go a little racier, lace. 
The juxtaposition of loud and muted designs will make this an OOTD win.

2. Girls Generation's Jessica Jung


If you're into the preppy look, take a leaf from Girls Generation's Jessica Jung's book 
and throw on a bright red cardigan over a striped collared top. 
Her Comme des Garcon PLAY lambswool cardigan totally pops against the muted monochromatic top. 
Keep things simple with a sling bag and sunnies.
Steal her look: Pair a chambray shirt, nautical stripes, or anything collared with a pop of colour.

3. Beyonce



Well, Sasha Fierce totally means business here in her leopard print cardigan and metal accessories.
Love those kooky round glasses that totally match her fabulous curls!
Steal her look: Let out your wild side with animal prints!
Just remember to stick to a complementary colour palette so that your outfit doesn't look too busy.

4. Girls Generation's Tiffany Hwang


Tiffany’s floral printed cardigan injects some life into her gray top and dark wash skinny jeans. 
The slouchiness of the oversized cardigan prevents the look from taking itself too seriously. 
With loose wavy hair and shades, this is airport chic at its best - 
unfussy yet dramatic enough to garner some eyeballs.
Steal her look: Go bold with florals - this is your chance to play up the girly look - 
but choose a relaxed cut so you don't look like an eighties getai singer.

5. Katie Holmes


Polished and suave is how Katie Holmes chose to do it. 
In her textured Isabel Marant √Čtoile knit cardigan, loose Holmes & Yang shirt, sleek black A.L.C. 
Ridley leather pants, she looks effortlessly cool. 
The leather pants and pumps sharpen the look, while the cardigan makes her look more approachable.
 Paired with loose waves and a megawatt smile, this getup is talk show ready.

Who knew a cardigan could look so cool, right?
Steal her look: Monochromatic designs make everything look more polished. 
But if you don't want to look too severe, a cardigan, loose top and easy waves will help to soften the look.

Heart is lonelier emptier than ever.

Time now is 1.23 am. I just came back from my Jakarta trip. I went there to attend my gf wedding.
The wedding was awesome. I love the decoration very much. Love the colors too. It was red white and black.
I am sincerely happy and envy my gf very much. She has finally found the one. They look so perfect for each other.
They shared the same hobbies and interests. Ariel is a romantic guy too, I believe.
I can see that my gf is very happy when she is with him and his family. They get along very well.
oh!! I am so jealous! =D I want to find my perfect one and get married too. Haha! I am kidding.
Seems like it will take some times as I have not found the one yet.
It is December, it should be a happy month because holiday is around the corner.
Well, my mood is not so good these days. Life is seriously boring.
I need some sparks in my life and well, I dont know. I dont know what I want. LOL.

I am planning to travel alone. That seems fun and thrilling. I should really try to do that.
Hopefully I will bump into my perfect one along the way and get married right away. Haha.
#DayDreaming I miss the feeling of being admired by several guys.
Honestly, I am craving for that. I know right. I am too old for that already. Ckck.
This christmas, I wish I can wake up to a happy day, everyday.
I will and I believe I can make my wish come true myself. I handle my own life.
 It would be perfect to spend everyday happily with someone I love too.
That person has to be kind to me, love me with his whole heart and know how to make me happy.
When I am happy, I will try my best to make him happy too.
I wish to date a normal guy with common sense. Haha
someone who can fulfill all of my affordable wishes such as
prepare a hand written love letter for me on special occasion, sing my favorite song,
simply hug me when I need it, console me when I cry, hold my hand whenever he can,
Kiss me everynight, be by my side when I am lonely, care about what I feel,
try his best to exceed my expectation, I just want someone who can makes me happy.
Those are basics wishes that doesnt cost money but effort and time.
All I need is LOVE ��
If possible, I wish to date someone older, someone wiser, someone who can teach me about a lot of things,
Someone who can share with me his story, someone who is able to earn money and feed himself.
It would be perfect if he can feed me too hahaha so that I can stay at home and be a good housewife LOL.
It would be even better if he is good at earning money. You know!
A sucessful business man is the one who makes more money than his wife can spend.
Lets pray that my wish will come true and I hope I can spend a happy christmas this year.

5 Tips for Dressing for Chinese New Year

In Chinese tradition, it is believed that fashion influence our fate, that the clothes we wear can attract good luck and harmony. That's the reason for wearing new clothes during Chinese New Year, to represent a clean slate to attract all the good things in the coming year. 

But how do you look appropriate for Chinese New Year while staying on top of the trend and paying attention to custom? Here are a few tips on how to dress for Chinese New Year to wow everyone from your grandmother to your mother-in-law, and most importantly, you: 


1. Shades of Red 

Red and gold are the obvious choice, being the auspicious colours that represent prosperity, happiness, and wealth. Not only do the Chinese decorate their houses with red and gold (or yellow) lanterns and ornaments, incorporating red or gold elements in one's outfit is a must.

This rich red flare dress by MOONRIVER comes with a subtle geometrical print that spices up the solid tone, while the cutting is flattering on all shapes and sizes. 

But if red and gold are not your colour, opt for shades of red such as pink, salmon, or coral. Gold can be replaced with shades of yellow too. Otherwise, add a subtle touch of the auspicious colours with accessories such as an envelope clutch, belt, scarf or jewellery. 


2. Traditional Meets Modern 

Mix traditional elements with modern ones to get the best of both worlds. A cheongsam-inspired top or a Mandarin-collar lace dress keeps things fun, fresh, and spring-ready while looking festival appropriate. Go for sleek silhouettes, clean-cut lines, and geometric prints. Otherwise, pastels are always a hit for spring - mint, coral, cotton-candy pinks and blue are dreamy shades and instant mood-lifters!

3. Mix Hues 

If clean lines and solid colours aren't your thing, if you're planning to paint the town red (no pun intended) with loud prints and look-at-me cutting, then have fun and go all out! It's the New Year, after all. When better to make a fashion statement?

This qipao by Clothier features an bold floral print that makes a great statement. Keep accessories and jewellery to the minimum to let the dress take centre stage. 


4. Embrace Tradition 

If you'd like to go back to your roots this Chinese New Year, try taking on the figure hugging qipao and pair it with modern elements like nude pumps, matte lipstick or a box clutch.

A short-sleeved cotton qipao is a wearable, breezy alternative to conventional materials like silk, while staying true to the shape of the traditional garb. This peach-coloured number from Clothier is just darling. 


5. Accessorise Wisely 

A handy little clutch will be enough to store your necessities (and red packets) while serving as a chic complement to your outfit.

This minaudiere by Something Borrowed, which features an elaborate gold leaf embroidery, adds an opulent touch to your look. It is also party ready, and particularly pops against a scarlet fit-and-flare dress with a Mandarin collar and black pumps.
