Hello, Friday! Another week went by so fast that there's just not enough time to catch up on the juiciest news there is. So from Sephora closing down their stores in the U.S. to Kylie Jenner teasing another addition to her controversial skincare line, we spill this week's hottest news in today's Insider Roundup for you to enjoy. 


Sephora stores closed in the U.S.... for an hour



Okay, okay! We know that the headline made your heart skip a beat for a moment. But no worries as Sephora only closed down all their U.S. stores last Wednesday for a mere hour to conduct a diversity training. The beauty retailer was in hot water recently when singer-songwriter SZA tweeted about an incident aligned to racial profiling in one Sephora store.


The store claimed that they already had planned on conducting the diversity training weeks prior to the incident but some people are not buying it. We can only hope that as wide as the range of beauty picks in Sephora counters are, that's also how they'll be more inclusive with their customers moving forward. 


Naturally Serious arrives in Singapore


Insider Roundup: Naturally Serious arrives in Singapore


The skincare brand that prides itself for being clean, ethically made, and with no B.A.D. (Banned. Ambiguous. Debatable.) ingredients in their formulations arrives in Singapore and promises to — as their name suggests — take your skin seriously. With products that offer a unique anti-pollution blend of six antioxidants, if anti-ageing and skin protection is up your alley (as it should be for everyone) then this arrival is definitely good news for you.


Paris Hilton and K-beauty?



After announcing her beauty brand ProD.N.A. a couple of months ago, Paris Hilton decided to take it to the big leagues — in terms of today's beauty scene — and launch it in South Korea. Paris claims that she finds the K-beauty market unique given their love for multi-step skincare and claims that she's already looking at its success. The brand aims to strengthen its range of anti-ageing and whitening products, which proved to be controversial in the Asian market recently, but it looks like Ms. PH isn't backing down with her vision. 


Kylie Skin is adding sunscreen to their line



It looks like even after the complaints about her skincare line, Kylie Jenner is still pursuing new Kylie Skin launches. In her recent Day In The Life video on YouTube, Kylie teased that sunscreen is making its way into her range of products. While deets about the product are still Klassified, people are already hoping no walnuts are involved in the making of this one.

2019 is shaping up to be the year of redemption for former fashion faux pas. From animal prints to fanny packs, we've been spotting several trends that were once deemed tacky and tasteless become style must-haves sported by the fashionista bunch. What happened? Maximalism.


Ever since this aesthetic gained prominence, outlandish designs that used to be 'too much' are now the coveted look. The latest to join the gang of 'ugly-cool' trends is the knot or chain print, which faded out of popularity during the '90s and has since been shelved until now. It was recently spotted on various runways and it made us reconsider this pattern. If you're still not convinced that it's gonna be a big thing, then you should know that Duchess Meghan recently wore a piece featuring this trend. Ready to give it a try? Keep reading for tips on how to slay this look.


Wear with neutral-coloured pieces



It's without a doubt that the chain pattern makes for a very busy print, so it's best to pair it with something neutral to balance out everything. Usually, tops that come in this design have a loose silhouette. In this case, we suggest you go for high-waisted pants to make the ensemble streamlined.


Try white on white



If you're a minimalist but want to try wearing the chain print, putting together a monochrome-like ensemble is the best compromise. You can pair a white blouse featuring the chain print with off-white pants for an elegant white on white look.


Look for an oversized top and cinch it with a belt



Want to emulate Duchess Meghan's take on the chain print but can't find a similar dress? It's true that dresses in chain prints are still a bit rare. Look instead for a top (preferably those from the men's section) and buy a bigger size that can serve as a dress for your frame. Then, you can cinch it with a chain belt to give it a shape. 


Go for the romper



Look like a dauntless fashionista with a romper in chain print. It's a very bold, fashion-forward ensemble that will instantly make you stand out from the crowd. To make it more interesting, you can layer it with a simple coat and wear classic jewellery like hoop earrings for a look that's undeniably style-savvy.



Mix in colour-blocking



The chain print doesn't always have to be the focal point of your look. It can also work as an added intriguing detail. For example, you can add the piece in a colour-blocking ensemble by wearing it underneath bright-coloured outerwear. This creates a unique outfit that's fresh and fun!
