Style Throwback: Celebrity Looks That Rocked Summer 2019 | Clozette

Now that summer is over, it's time to do a style recap and revel in the fun trends we've seen and enjoyed. Summer is one of the seasons when we witness our favourite stars setting new trends or giving classics a comeback. Ahead, our favourite trends sported by some of our favourite celebrities from the region. Who knows? You might find a way to wear these even after hot, sunny days. 

Rose of Blackpink’s half-up hairstyle

We just can’t get enough of Rose of the K-Pop group Blackpink and her half-up hairstyle spotted in their recent concert tour and meet-and-greets. She’s done it by dividing the section of her hair into halves with a few bangs on the side. The upper half is gathered and tied while the other half falls down with soft, romantic waves. Effortlessly stunning! Steal this look and do it your way by throwing the half-section of your hair into a bun or arrange a braid then finish it with a dainty ribbon.

Chalita Suansane’s shimmering skirt

Thai model and beauty queen Chalita Suansane is Barbie-like in this style. She paired a tee with a pink sheer skirt designed with shimmering glitters from iCONiC’s latest summer collection. Want to rock this look, too? Look for that sheer skirt you’ve had for months inside your closet and pair it with your favourite t-shirt and sneakers to balance the bling with a bit of casualness.

Liu Wen and her oversized garments

Chinese supermodel Liu Wen goes big by wearing oversized garments, evoking a laid-back vibe that isn’t too baggy and awkward. Like Liu, it’s best to choose neutral colours when sporting the ‘oversized’ trend. Plus, perk up your look with sassy accessories like a belt or a bag.

Julia Barretto’s matching scarlet two-piece outfit

Aside from giving fans serious travel inspiration from her last summer trip to South America, Filipina actress Julia Barretto shows us how to travel in style. She wore a scarlet-coloured two-piece outfit matched with gold dainty necklaces and wide-rimmed sunnies. Copy the look by wearing a cropped top and a skirt in a popping colour of orange or pink. Plus, don’t forget to add your favourite neckpieces to achieve that Julia-inspired outfit.

Kiko Mizuhara

American-Japanese actress/model Kiko Mizuhara redefines the purpose of monokinis in one of her latest outfits for a fashion event. She draped a polka dot sheer gown over a striped one-piece suit while carrying a petite glittery bag. It’s also hard to ignore those patches. You can also make a statement like Kiko in this style. This outfit is perfect for evening events where it’s okay to reveal skin and exude a sultry vibe like a beach party at night. 

Want to really make a statement? Try out these sunnies styles.



It's true that the colour grey is not the most eye-catching hue, but it's anything but boring. This understated shade is versatile and rarely clash with Asian skin tones, so it's a great pick for days when you want to look sleek and chic. Keep scrolling to see how members of the Clozette Community sport this shade.

The first week of July is over and it's brimming with interesting news! From Japanese and Singaporeans owning the most powerful passports to China introducing beauty filters in their face-scan payment methods, we've got them front and centre for your enjoyment in today's Insider Roundup. 

Uniqlo pledges new sustainability measures

Following the news of Sweden cancelling Stockholm Fashion Week in the name of sustainability, Japanese fast-fashion brand Uniqlo also announced how they're taking part in this global movement. The brand's parent company, which also carries labels GU and Theory, pledged to cut their use of plastic up to 85 per cent. The company will also start rolling out recyclable shopping bags and other environment-friendly materials in its products in line with this change. Awesome, right?

Japan and Singapore top this year's list of countries with the most powerful passports

Japanese and Singaporean passports are the most powerful passports to date. Both countries have 189 destinations each allowing them access without a need for a visa. They're followed by South Korea, Finland, and Germany with 187 countries under each of their lists. For Malaysia, there are 176 countries they can visit and for the Philippines, there are 64. 

Kim Kardashian won a lawsuit versus fashion brand Missguided

After years of continuously tagging and associating Kim Kardashian to their social media posts and product promotions without her consent, Kimmy's finally taken legal actions against fashion brand Missguided. Kim won the case by forfeit when the brand failed to address the lawsuit, which requires Missguided to pay the KKW beauty brand owner almost USD2.8 million for damages. The court order also includes restricting Missguided from using any trademarked products or labels under any of the Kardashians' ownership moving forward. 

Sophie Turner's (second) wedding gown are #goals

It looks like everyone just can't stop talking about Sophie and Joe's weddings and the fashion may just be one of the biggest reasons why. In her first — and more casual — Vegas wedding last month, Sophie's stylish Bevza jumpsuit and gold Loeffler Randall mules ensemble already gave us great unconventional #BrideGoals.

But it looks like the Dark Phoenix star's second (and more traditional) wedding dress would be the one landing the most on Pinterest boards this year. Showing off her décollatage in a beautiful flowing lace dress from Louis Vuitton, she's definitely owning up to her Game of Thrones Queen in the North status with this look. 

China's Alipay introduces beauty filters to their face-scan payment system

Biometrics and facial recognition are just some of today's usual privacy and security measures. But what's supposed to bank on accuracy and detailing is now also being infiltrated by beauty filters — at least that's the case with China's Alipay face-scan payment system. This feature is said to address the complaints of users that the cashless face-scan system makes people look ugly. According to Alipay's Weibo post, the feature they will roll-out will "make you look even prettier than with a beauty camera." Interesting, right? What are your two cents on this?

Pokemon invades Jewel Changi

Say hello to your fave Pokemon buddies at Jewel Changi in all Saturdays and Sundays of July. Catch Pikachu and friends at 2PM and 6PM respectively as they dance against the majestic backdrop of the iconic HSBC Rain Vortex and lush Shiseido Forest Valley.
