Chic Fashion Staples That Are Perfect From Day To Night | Clozette
Always being in a rush, it’s important that the clothes I pick are not hard to match. These Fall’16 styles from KODZ made it a breeze for me to pair my clothes. Whether casual or chic, I love how these pieces are great for every occasion from day to night.



This airy long sleeved top in my first look is one of my favorite pieces. The lightness of its material and monochromatic prints is a good choice for days when running errands on a humid workday.


I’m not one for high collared shirts but when a dressy occasion calls for it, this is the one to have. With an easy zip opening at the back, I do not have to worry about the usual button coming open whenever I move. Pair it with the KODZ grey knit skirt with its slight slit at the side and it easily takes you from a casual day to an evening out.



Sequins are always, always, always, a yes. When it comes in a muted color, you will not have to worry about being “too loud”. Wear a basic top underneath this sequin jacket and it takes your look to a whole different level, perfect for office or family parties when you want to look your best but not too much.




The ‘bralette’ has been the fashion staple for 2016 for a while now but finding an appropriate pairing for it might be a little difficult. For this look, I wore it together with the KODZ black drawstring pants – which really compliments the entire look, as it is fitted at the waist and tapered at the ankle, giving the body a proportionate silhouette.



Ahh, who doesn’t love a playsuit? This strapless one piece is suitable for any occasion, be it a casual weekend or a fun night out. The lattice detail on the sides makes this piece a unique one. Pick your favorite nude or black heels to go with it, accessorize, and you’re ready to go!




This casual lightweight dress will be your top pick for a casual weekend, be it out shopping, or a late afternoon picnic. Simply tie the rope belt around your waist to avoid looking too “flowy” or “big”.

If you’re looking for ensembles that will take you through everyday with comfort and elegance, KODZ would be the best choice for every style!

The Style Icon



“I'm always having trouble finding the balance between staying warm and looking stylish. Fashion is, after all, a form of self-expression.

I have, though, been finding my way round this thing, figuring out what works best for me and how to make clothes like turtlenecks and midi skirts — something I never thought I'd ever wear — look effortlessly stylish all while still ensuring that my arms and legs don't freeze off my bones (during my stay in London).

LAYERING — Yes! Layering. Even with pieces that aren't exactly winter appropriate, like slip dresses and bralettes, there's always a way to wear them; whether it's over thick, cosy knit jumpers or turtleneck sweaters.” – Trishna


The Sweetheart



“KODZ has been dominating my wardrobe lately with their collections. I love their clothes so much as they suit my feminine style and the quality is also really good!” – Veren

The Less-Is-More Advocate



“I love basics. To me, any basic piece can be transformed to any style you desire – edgy, classy, and of course, casual.

“My fashion philosophy is to be comfortable and daring, don’t let the outfit wear you, rock the outfit instead.” – Jxhia


The Femme Fatale



“Always being in a rush, it’s important that the clothes I pick are not hard to match.

These Fall’16 styles from KODZ made it a breeze for me to pair my clothes. Whether casual or chic, I love how these pieces are great for every occasion from day to night. If you’re looking for ensembles that will take you through everyday with comfort and elegance, KODZ would be the best choice for every style!”

In just two days, we’ll all be talking about 2017 and what to look forward to. That means tons of speculation on what trends – both for fashion and beauty – we should all look out for, what to sport to be ahead of the times, and various ways on how to style these new ‘it’ clothes and looks.

But before we start predicting what’s going to be big in the new year, we thought we’d do a little “Throwback Thursday” to give some love to our favourite fashion and beauty trends of 2016. So keep reading below to find out which trends we fell head over heels for and couldn’t stop wearing.

-------------------------- 


Skinny Scarves

Because we live in a tropical climate, we don’t always have an excuse to wear a scarf. But thanks to the introduction of the skinny scarf, we were able to rock it with more OOTDs than we can count. Plus, it came in various materials and textures, so we were able to easily mix things up.

The Lob

Is there a more universally flattering haircut than the lob? Whether worn straight, wavy, or curly, it beautifully emphasises your best facial features because it’s the perfect balance between short and long. It’s so chic that we’re sure this haircut will still be popular in 2017!

Bell Sleeves

Whenever we needed to give our outfit a fashionable pop but still wanted to keep things simple and sleek, bell sleeves became our new go-to. Why? Because it’s able to add dimension, shape and edge to a look without overwhelming you.

Extreme Strobing

While we love the power of contouring, strobing stole our hearts the minute we came across it in various fashion shows and makeup tutorials. When chiseling out your features, why use two products when you can just use one, right? Plus, with strobing, it’s easier to get that Korean dewy look everyone loves.

Culottes

It's perfect for work, nights out with the girls, fancy dinner parties, and whatever else you can think of. Culottes became a closet staple for us in 2016 because of its elegant cut that made it easy to style. So whether we wanted a casual, work, or more formal look, just by changing up a little detail, we were able to make the perfect outfit.

A Pop of Colour

Nothing can ever take over the sheer sophistication of a neutral eye, but this year we were in the mood for a little more colour. Blue, green, fuchsia, and lavender -- the bright colours we sported on our lids, lips, and hair -- were endless and they looked just as elegant as a neutral makeup look.

Pinafore and Slip Dresses

Ask anyone what their favourite trends are from 2016 were, and we guarantee you pinafore and slip dresses are two of them. Ever since the 90’s aesthetic exploded this year, this layering trend has been seen on the streets and runways because of its versatility, flattering silhouette and statement-making capabilities.

Gradient Lips

In need of a natural, yet fuller-looking pout? Gradient lips, darling. It's no wonder why it's one of our favourite K-beauty trends. By doing a little swiping and mixing, we’re instantly able to create a soft but bold lip look that emulates the ones sported by our favourite Korean celebrities.

Micropleats

From tops to pants to skirts, micropleats is one of those trends that can be worn in any part of your outfit and will still look chic. And aside from the texture and dimension it adds, we love the way it feels, too; its soft material is extremely comfortable to wear.

Warm Lids

While 2016 was the year we decided to rock brighter colours on our eyes, it was also the year we dove into warm eyeshadow territory. From coppers to chocolates, we couldn’t get enough of the classic tone on our lids. And whether we wore it alone or smoked out, it always turned out “cool girl” gorgeous.
