December is upon us and with that comes a brand new Stylescope! For this month, we have the adventurous and independent Sagittarius who always wants to find the meaning of life through thrilling adventures and experiences. Don’t be fooled by their craving for excitement though, because this sign can be philosophical and religious too — they're often called wanderers or truth-seekers.

This positive and enthusiastic sign is similar to the girl-next-door type, but the Sagittarius is more than that as they are natural-born, noble leaders. So if you’re a Sagittarius like our very own Clozette Ambassador Paperkitties, check out what fashion and beauty essentials are a perfect fit for you this month!

Great news, this month will be one of the best times in your life! Your career will grow as more opportunities come in, and you will experience a rush of energy during these circumstances and will surely prevail. This is a great month to fall in love too as its the happiest time of the year with all the holidays and your career expanding. But, be careful of overworking yourself; too much of something is never a good thing.

Colour Of The Month: Light Blue

Light blue is the perfect colour for the exciting and optimistic Sagittarius as it gives a bright and happy feeling to whoever sees it. This shade matches the fun and positive personality of this Zodiac sign, and will add a beautiful subtle pop of colour to all of your outfits!


Fashion Icon: Taylor Swift



Taylor Swift perfectly embodies the Sagittarius sign with her fun attitude, outgoingness, her large group of friends (#SquadGoals), and her bright-colored outfits on stage and off! She has a girl-next-door vibe that just screams fun and warmth, comparable to tiny rays of sunshine!


Style-To-Rock: Sporty Chic

Because Sagittarius is always craving physical activities, it only makes sense to opt for some chic, comfy clothes that can be worn on a hike, or in the gym, or for running a few errands. Don’t feel restricted with colours, too, as you can go as bright or bold as you want! Just make sure it's something you feel comfortable in.


Beauty Item: Etude House Color In Liquid Lips

The Sagittarius is a lip woman, always wearing the brightest and boldest colours out there. So for this month, rock a purple pout with Etude House’s Color In Liquid Lips in #17PP502! It’s perfect for the cooler and festive season, and it will give your lips opaque coverage but with a glossy finish, making your lips look delectable!

We always emphasise on how brows can frame our face. It’s true, but more often than not, we fail to pay attention to the true – almost literal – frame of the face: our hair. A hairstyle can reflect your personality and enhance your overall ensemble, and it can even be a major confidence booster to power you through the day.

With a career spanning over three decades, hair maestro Kim Robinson lives by the motto: Change your look, change your life. Having worked his hairdressing magic from the backstage of international fashion runways and magazines like Vogue, to the manes of A-listers the likes of Princess Diana, Kate Moss, Zhang Ziyi and Gong Li – we can’t help but agree that our hairstyles can actually make or break how we’d like to portray ourselves.



Last week, we got the chance to catch up with Kim Robinson when he was in Singapore to promote the launch of his new book, ‘Go Get Gorgeous’. This 173-page style guide for modern Asian women features a string of renowned personalities such as Hong Kong supermodel Kathy Chow, Taiwan actress Brigitte Lin, and international recording artist Sandy Lam.


‘Go Get Gorgeous’ cover model, August Zhang


What we find most endearing about the book is the story of cover girl, Chinese model August Zhang. After suffering from a career lull, her modeling life took a 360-degree turn after Kim transformed her look by simply changing up her hairstyle. Today, August is signed to international modeling agency, Wilhelmina Models, and was chosen as one of the faces for Yves Saint Laurent’s ‘Pop Up Your Lips’ 2015 campaign. Is this what the motto ‘change your look, change your life’ truly means? We certainly think so.

In the book, Kim also penned down his top tips on achieving and maintaining beautiful hair, no matter your hair length and colour. To help you get started, we share Kim’s three tips for gorgeous hair:

Invest in a good cut

“A style can make you look incredibly beautiful, or be completely incorrect for the shape of your face. While all hairstyles will grow out or fade, it can seem like an eternity when the style itself is poorly cut or unflattering.”


Communicate deeply with your stylist




“(Your hairstylist) wants to give you the cut and style that you are looking for, but they can’t read your mind! Bring visuals. Using a visual guide to communicate with your stylist is always a good idea; it takes all of the guesswork out of it.”


A quality brush goes a long way




“Natural bristles are the best for styling – they are flexible, so they don’t snag or damage the hair or hurt the delicate skin on the scalp, while distributing the natural oils of the scalp evenly through the hair.

Rubble bristles are phenomenal to work with wet hair; which is when your hair is at its most vulnerable.”

The Go Get Gorgeous book retails at S$48 (with a complimentary Kim Robinson cleanse-and-finish hair beauty voucher worth S$58!), and is available at Kim Robinson & Kinokuniya.

Inject happy colours


(Get It Here)


Conquer Decem-blur and brighten a room wearing red or yellow. It’s a fact that happy colors affect people’s mood. So spread the joy, right? Pick something like this Oasis Shift Dress.

Opt for festive details


(Get It Here)


Glitters, sequins, plaid, and jacquard are inherently festive so try to build your look around one of these elements. But you can also level up and dress beyond the sparkles. This Adrenaline Crushed Top from ModCloth features crushed velvet in jewel-toned hue, which adds texture to your look.


Don a bow


(Get It Here)


Much like a topper to a wrapped present, a bow can give that final touch to any outfit for a subtle holiday feel. Wear it on your clothes, hair, or as embellishment to your accessories like this pair of Lost Ink Flat Brogues.


Paint your kissers red


(Get It Here)


The red lip is a classic beauty look that’s elegant, festive and easy to apply. Smile and use a brush to apply the product. We like Estee Lauder Pure Color Envy Sculpting Lipstick.


Wear a holiday scent


(Get It Here)


Scents are very personal so pick a blend that reminds you of holiday celebrations, be it the scent of your freshly washed sweater, hot chocolate and peppermint barks, or the blooming roses on grandma’s yard. Try the scent of Molton Brown Elderflower Body Wash.
