Quick Style Tip: Casual-Chic With Emma | Clozette

When it comes to every day dressing, we love channeling our casual-chic side. It’s comfy, presentable, and allows us to easily transition from day-to-night—going from work, to an event, and a night-out with our best girl-friends in an instant.


So in collaboration with our friends from Zalora Malaysia, we asked our lovely Clozette Ambassador Emma Shazleen to show us her go-to look for a quick casual-chic look.


Here’s the look she came up with!




“Putting the glamorous high heels and dresses aside, another of my favourite choice of style would be casual, or as I like to call it, casual-chic. I am known for being feminine and wearing heels often; but sometimes when I am not in the mood to dress up, I still have to look approachable. Hence, casual is the perfect choice! Who says you can't stand out even on your dress-down days?


“My preferred look for casual-chic days would be a pair of shirt, jeans or leggings, and flats or sandals. Like this look seen here--a pair of ripped skinny jeans, white mesh-panelled shirt, and grey moccasins from Zalora! Since I didn’t want to be over the top with my accessories, I paired my outfit with a double-pearled choker and bangle. Keeping it simple, yet stylish. Sometimes, less is more and simple is the best way to go!”

If you look at the most iconic people in fashion such as Coco Chanel, Anna Dello Russo, and Miroslava Duma they all have one thing in common--classic elegance. They adapt to the times and update their style with a touch of elegance and timelessness. These icons are named as such because they know how to imbibe the essence of being classy and elegant at the same time. 


Here at Clozette, we believe that classic elegance isn't just a style but also a state of mind. So as inspired by the new Downy Timeless--the latest addition to the Downy Parfum Collection, with a scent that embodies that timeless elegance we all aspire for--we took to the floors of Clozette's offices around the region and got our team to define classic elegance in their own way.


Here's what they had to say!

"Classic elegance is all about refined taste, of knowing how to pull together a look that mixes simplicity and grace--like a sleek dress and a statement clutch, finished off with a pop of pink on the lips."
