Fall Fashion With axdelwen | Clozette

October marks the time when the fashion season changes from the bright colours of Summer to the more moodier hues for Fall. While the weather in our region isn't exactly apt for coats or thick jackets usually synonymous with Fall, our savvy fashionistas have brought their own take on Fall fashion by adapting the trend to suit the tropical climate of Southeast Asia.


So we sat down with our Featured Fashionista for October, Adele (axdelwen), and got her talking about her style, what she loves the most about Fall fashion, and how she adapts the trend to suit Singapore's humid weather.


--------------------------


Can you describe your style?

I like to experiment with as many styles as I can. However, I usually gravitate towards grunge. I love monochrome, a good leather jacket, and booties. I enjoy adding a bit of edge and attitude to an otherwise girly outfit.



What is the trend you love most from Fall 2014?

Sneakers! They're so comfortable and convenient especially since I don't own private transport. So all those running after the bus wont be much of a problem.





What is your favourite Fall fashion trend of all time?

Coats are the best part of Fall, they give outfits more oomph! Layering pieces also brings more dimension to the look. Like a blouse can be made more edgy by just adding an army jacket.





How do you plan on incorporating Fall trends to match the weather in Southeast Asia?

No thick, furry coats for us! But there are always other coats that are more appropriate for our tropical climate. We can actually find trench coats and parka that are made of thinner material here. Those are easy to wear and are very good for layering.





Do you have a particular go-to piece that you bring out whenever the fashion season changes?

Accessories! Because items such as rings, necklaces, and bracelets don't change even when season changes, so it's fun to play around with them and adapt them to whatever look I'm in the mood for.

When you've planned a night out with your best girl friends, an all black ensemble never fails. This side slit skirt paired with a crop top and chunky platforms definitely makes the notion of the little black dress seem almost obsolete. After all, who needs an LBD when you can create a sleeker silhouette with this two-piece ensemble?

A couple of week's ago, we featured Pamela's denim-on-denim style and this week's we've spotted another take on this denim trend! Honeyflowerr's denim-on-denim ensemble features head-to-toe denim in a similar colour and texture--even down to its distressed details. This is a look that brings out the inner 90s child in all of us and we're totally loving it!

Do you fancy yourself a flower-child, hippie, festival goer? Then this is an ensemble that'll catch your eye. Not only does it seem extremely comfortable making it the perfect outfit for shuffling through the festival crowd without feeling too restricted (hello, loose fitted crop top!); but the blend of monochrome textures and patterns give you an effortlessly chic aura--like you woke up and threw on a bunch of pieces together and walked out the door without a care in the world.

Jumpsuits are the go-to piece for days when you don't want your clothes getting in the way of life--perfect for days when you're running around with a bunch of errands to accomplish. We're loving this pairing of a black jumpsuit with an adorable watermelon printed shirt that adds just the right amount of cutesy-fun to an otherwise sleek ensemble.

Doesn't pastel-on-white ensembles just make you want to melt? The pastel and white colour combination is a sophisticated take on the pastel palette from childhood. We're loving this white midi pencil skirt with sheer striped detailing paired with a pastel blue crop top and white heels.

October is here and that can only mean one thing for us women: Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Breast Cancer is not only the most commonly diagnosed cancer amongst women but is also one of the leading causes of death amongst women. As a community of fashionable and savvy women, what better way to showcase our solidarity and awareness for the cause than by wearing pink through the month! 

So to kick start Breast Cancer Awareness month, we've looked through the community for inspiration on how to incorporate a touch of pink in your look throughout October.

Add colour to a neutral outfit with a bright pink clutch.

When you want to liven up a neutral outfit, incorporating a touch of pink is the way to go this month! A bold, pink clutch is an easy way to incorporate colour in your overall ensemble.

Reach for a bright pink lippie for a quick pop of pink!


by beautifulbuns

Lipsticks are probably one of the most loved item in most of our makeup collection. I love lippies. You love lippies. We all love lippies! With the wide range of shades available, you'll never be bored of wearing a pink lippie through the month.



Slip on a pair of gorgeous hot pink espadrilles.

Show your feet some pink-love by slipping on a pair of pink shoes throughout the month--whether it be similar to these gorgeous espadrilles or something more casual like a pair of pink sneakers.



For something more subtle, go for a demure pale pink manicure.


by charleneajose

If you're a fan of the French Manicure, request for a pink version of it this month. Its classic design is versatile enough to pair with a variety of ensembles, whether you're going for a chic corporate look or a brunch date with your girlfriends.



Let pink be the statement piece in your outfit


by WenhuiWang

For something a little bit more fun and girly, opt for a bright pink skirt as a statement piece to your entire look. This skirt we spotted on Clozette Ambassador, Wenhui, is in the perfect shade of pink to kick start the month.

While wearing pink for fashion is always fun, we haven't forgotten the reason behind the pink. As such, we've launched a PINK IS POWER campaign in support of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. It is part of our initiative to empower our community with an awareness drive to educate and spread the word about a disease that affects us all. 

We hope everyone in our community participates in showing the power of pink by supporting PINK IS POWER.
