5 Styles To Try In 2015

cforcassan is our Ambassador Insider for January and she lets us in on the fashion choices she can't wait to try this year!

Like what they always say: a new year breeds a new beginning. 

Let 2015 be a year of your biggest fashion experiment. Try on new styles, clean out the old, and more importantly, dress comfortably to know what fits you well. For me, it's also a year of taking chances, especially with fashion. Here are some of the styles I would love to experiment further and inculcate into my wardrobe in the New Year. Who knows? It might also be something which you would want to try out for yourselves as well!

1) Literal Prints

Go bold, or go home. Such statement pieces can bring life into your closet, and you'll be sure to wow the crowd with these beautiful prints. Pair it with neutral accessories so as not to take away too much attention from what you are wearing.
2) Lace

Being a girly-girl myself, I can never say no to lace. Owning at least one lace piece in your closet can make an outfit look more sweet and girly, depending on how you style it. Want to spice things up? You can always match a lace top with a leather skirt or slim jeans for an edgier look.

3) Accessorizing

I have never been one to accessorize, until I started trying out dangle earrings and I was hooked! Adding such bold statements can definitely glam up any outfit in an instant! Not a fan of drop earrings? You can opt for bigger studs which will also bring out the magic.

4) A Pop Of Colour

A pop of colour can liven up any outfit! Adding the right tone to your outfit is not only easy, but can also transform your style. This year, I plan to be bolder and step out of my comfort zone when it comes to experimenting with colours. You can also try it out with pastel hues this season if you want to slowly ease your way into bold colours.

5) Sweater Weather

With the chilly weather creeping in, it's essential to own at least one or two sweaters which can tide you through the erratic weather in the region. For those who feel that it might be too warm, you can always pair it with a trumpet skirt or even a cute pair of shorts for a more casual look.



We adore Gwyneth Paltrow. At 42, she’s still one of Hollywood’s most beautiful faces, a talented actress, style icon, taste maker and food writer among many other accomplishments – so what’s not to love? 

Clearly, we are not alone in this sentiment. Hugo Boss appointed Gwyneth to be the global ambassador of its fragrance, Boss Nuit EDP, precisely because of the qualities she possesses that makes her a role model for many women.

Like Gwyneth, Boss Nuit is feminine, classic and inspires confidence in a woman on any occasion. So you can’t be Gwyneth Paltrow – but wearing this scent comes pretty close!

Marsala is the colour of the year and has been described by Pantone as a robust and earthy wine red. At first glance, it can be easily be confused with Burgundy, a deep wine red that has been the go-to colour in Fall/Winter 2014. But in a nut-shell, we'd consider Marsala as Burgundy's lighter-hued sibling with a touch of earthy-brown tones throughout. 

So since the year has barely begun, we thought it'll be the best time to scout for Marsala-coloured items to update your fashion and beauty stash. Here's our list of 5 Marasala-hued items to get your hands on ASAP.


NARS Lipstick in Tolede

NARS lipsticks give off a creamy, sheer finish to create natural, stained-looking lips. This semi-matte formula in the shade Tolede is a muted way to incorporate a touch of Marsala into your everyday makeup look.

We love peplum tops and this Forever 21 top in a chic matalasse knit is definitely a must-have item to grab this month. It's a slightly-lighter Burgundy shade--which is pretty close to Marsala in our book. Dress this up with a pencil skirt or pair it with your favourite pair of skinny jeans.
