- These colours should be worn with a light neutral shade like beige, white or khaki. So if you’re wearing an orange top, try on a pair of beige slim fit trousers.
- For citrusy pants, you could wear a contrasting coloured top or printed blouse.
- Citrus + citrus = Yummy! (Warning: Take your husband/sibling/ mom’s opinion before you step out in a top-to-toe citrus ensemble).
- If you’re wearing a bright orange or yellow dress, make that the key piece of your look. Which means your bag, shoes and earrings should be subtle. Nude pumps or a tan belt would look great!

Special occasions call for special shoes… who knows, your Cinderella story might come true. 😉
January’s been a month of launches, though February will see more as new collections hit the stores. Take a look at our picks this month.
Accessories: Hidesign Lizard Leather Collection
Fear not, animal lovers! Hidesign’s latest collection is made of faux lizard printed vegetable tanned leathers. The deep emboss and hand finished colours give the leathers a rich gloss. The bags in this collection are available in colours like midnight blue, deep red, forest green, brown and black. The styles range from clutches and wallets to totes and day bags. My favourite: Thelma grab handle bag (picture below).
Accessories: Metro Shoes’ Bling it on collection
Drawing inspiration from unconventional prints, metallics and nature, the Bling it on collection adds a tint of azure to monotonous wardrobe colours.
For women, there are flats, denim textured ballerinas, polished kitten heels, gladiators, wedges and slip-ons, mostly in shades of blue. My pick- the tie-up flats (picture below).
The guys can choose from zipper shoes, loafers, lace-ups and boots in cobalt blues, earthy browns and burnt sienna. For men’s party shoes, there are comfy slip-ons, buckled formals and high-tops in vibrant blue.
Fragrance: Lancome Trésor Midnight Rose
Endorsed by Emma Watson, this fruity floral is colourful and upbeat. Lancome Trésor Midnight Rose embodies mischievous femininity and embodies romantic yet contemporary love. Rose bring playfulness to the fragrance, with deliciously tangy raspberry tones, wooden shimmers and voluptuous vanilla notes. This perfume could be your signature with its spontaneous, irresistible charms! Spray it on and feel like you’re in Paris. 🙂
This set of fragrances for him and her is for the bold and witty. Think bright florals for the playful young lady (top notes of red berries, mandanrin oil and pink pepper, base notes of amber and vanilla), and creamy musk for the flirtatious guy (top notes: pineapple, mandarin, orange; base notes: amber, musk).
Packaged in a high-gloss shell enclosed in glass, these fragrances will add a fun touch to your life and your dressing table.
What’s your chic pick of the month?
It’s the season for boots, ladies! And with hundreds of styles to choose from, we girls are spoilt for choice… and confused. So here’s my pick of boots for winter 2011-12, along with chic tips to wear them!
The classic blacks
You can’t pass a winter without a pair of black boots for daily wear. Black boots go with almost every colour I can imagine, and are ideal for day wear, office and evening!
Chic tip: Bored of black boots? Try tan or brown boots, or look for blacks with a hint of detailing like lace or texture, or a cool buckle.

Boots for parties
Boots now come in fun styles! Decorated with sequins, rhinestones and beads, boots can be as embellished as your party dress. Spiky-heeled boots are a great alternative to stilettos and peep-toed pumps.

Chic tip: Let’s be honest—boots can make you look like a tramp. If your look is too grungy or blingy, then you run a serious fashion risk with embellished boots. If your boots are quite catchy, tone down the jewellery and the sequins on your dress.
Tall or knee-high boots can be quite intimidating for many women, but don’t think you’re too short or too tall for something. If a pair of tall boots looks great on you, wear it with confidence. They are great to keep your legs warm in the cold weather!

Chic tip: Avoid wearing knee-high boots with shorts, though they do look great with skirts, dresses and skinny jeans.
