Hey guys! Haven’t posted an outfit post in a while, but thank god Gabrielle is finally back in town so we can get the ball rolling again. I know Hong Kong has been crazy hot lately, breaking some hundred-year record for highest temperature in consecutive days. That’s why honestly, you can’t really go anywhere wearing anything but shorts and sleeveless tops.
After relentlessly trying on different styled summer pieces, I’ve got for you some styling and shopping tips, so keep reading!
Wearing: Missguided top, AEO 360X shorts, Ray Ban aviators
Tip for shopping off-shoulder tops
The trend this season is all about showing off your shoulders/collarbones, but not all tops were created equal. Some are clearly more flattering than others, and I’ve found that for wider girls (not curvier), tops with frilly sleeves that comes out from the side make you nothing but wider.
Try instead to stick with racerFRONT tops, or cold shoulder ones (those with holes in the shoulder, not completely cut-off) to not only show off some skin but even out your top silhouette.
I’m pretty in love with this top I scored from Missguided via Zalora (get 15% off with this code: BAPQDT8) and I’ve also been wearing a top from Monki a LOT – follow me on Instagram to see it hehe.
Another shopping tip – not an ad though:
If you’re unsure which styles fit you best, find a shopping site that does free returns, no questions asked. I do that with Zalora all the time, especially with styles I just haven’t tried before. If I hate it, I can return it! Same goes for shoes. Plus you get to save on free shipping if you order more! 😉
Till next time, leave me a comment telling me how YOU discover new trends and style! I’d love to know.
