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.
