If you answered mostly As, you’re a Fit Femme.


As someone who loves running, working out, and just about any physical activity, you need undergarments that will not only be comfortable but give you the support you need. Triaction by Triumph is a great choice. The line offers bra fits for every shape. Plus, it’s bounce-control-certified by the world-renowned researchers for breast health in the University of Portsmouth, so you can move with protection and ease.




Under the Triaction line, there's the Cardio collection, which is perfect for women who do high-performance activities. It’s made to feel Dynamic Lite with 3D Powertech, which combines three different fabrics to ensure bounce control.

There’s also the Studio Collection, which is more apt for those who do low-intensity training and toning activities. Think of this collection as the marriage of style and function because it features Triumph’s award-winning soft-touch Magic Wire innovation, Magic Motion, that gives comfortable support in stylish designs.



If you answered mostly Bs, you’re a Lady Leader.


You’re in charge of many things — from your career to your family life — and you are undeniably strong. But you also know that you can’t do all these without the proper support — emotionally and sartorially. So make sure that underneath your go-to modern-day armour, there are trustworthy undergarments that give your form support.


Left: Comfort Touch; Right: Natural Embrace



Perfect for someone who’s tasked with so many things, the pieces from the Triumph Comfort Touch line provide maximum comfort, you won’t even remember you have them on. They have a bi-stretch cup that clings to the body seamlessly. They also have brushed straps and microfiber that offer ultimate comfort.

Meanwhile, the Triumph Natural Embrace line offers the same support but with the addition of flexible lace. So you get an extra boost of confidence aside from comfort. The pieces come in elegant black and nude colour combinations for understated chicness.



If you answered mostly Cs, you’re a Modern Romantic.


Ah, love. There’s nothing in the world you adore more. Spending time with your special someone is an enriching activity, and you make sure to always be dressed properly for it. But before you put on your favourite dress, make sure you have one of the pieces from the Triumph Aqua Lily collection on. Made with 50 per cent lighter Aqua padding, the bras give a natural lift while being lightweight and comfortable. Depending on the vibe you’re going for, you can choose from the Natural, Extra or Ultimate push up in the collection.




With its smooth cups, beautifully designed back and removable padding, the Natural bra gives off a subtle look. Meanwhile, the Extra features a deep V neckline that gives a nice push-up effect. It has flora-inspired embroidery, mesh sides and multi-colours. Ultimate takes cleavage to the maximum and creates an impactful look. Combining microfiber cups with soft magic wire and removable padding this bra gives both comfort and subtle seduction.



If you answered mostly Ds, you’re a Carefree Queen.


You’re a Jill of All Trades who loves to just be free. Cosy is your favourite word, and you make sure you have that down pat in every aspect of your life — especially your wardrobe. So the pieces from the Triumph Everyday Essential line are perfect for you.


Left: Everyday Essentials; Right: Everyday Romance


Made for every and any occasion, these T-Shirt bras have memory foam combined with a layer of soft foam for ultimate comfort. They also come in Wired and Non-Wired Push-Up varieties, so you’re free to choose based on your need. Plus, you have the liberty to choose from versatile colours: Black, Pink, Nude and Blue. The best part? They come with matching Frenchie or Hipster briefs. These will be your new staples.


If you want the same comfort but with a bit more sultriness, the pieces from the Triumph Everyday Romance are your best bet. With lightweight cups covered with microfibre, they’re breathable and extra comfortable — even during hot, humid days. Take your pick from soft mauve and pebble grey and pair it with matching hipster briefs.

Investing on basics and neutrals is probably the best fashion decision you’ll ever make. It’s practical, as these universal pieces almost never go out of style. You create dozens of style options just by mixing and matching them. Still, looks can get boring and repetitive after wearing them again and again for a while. Instead of buying tons of statement outfits that you could only use once or twice, consider making small style tweaks to your capsule wardrobe instead. Here are just some simple style tips you can follow to make your ensemble stand out.



Show your spark

The easiest way to elevate your outfit for the day is to accessorise. Small style tweaks like putting on a tiny piece of jewellery gives your overall look a different feel. If you feel like showing off a dainty feminine vibe, opt for a soft-coloured gem like these charming dangling jade earrings from JL Heart


Sunnies out


Pink cat eye sunglasses

One of the pros of living in a tropical region is that it’s almost perpetually summer. Sun’s out and shining most of the time, so we all have an excuse to whip out our fave sunglasses. This pair of micro-cat eye sunglasses from Polaroid Eyewear is a perfect example of a multi-tasking accessory; it protects your eyes from bright lights and adds a fun quirkiness to your outfit.



Hats on

Speaking of sun protection, your face needs covering from the UV rays just as much as your eyes do. This bucket patchwork hat from Mango does that, plus adds a unique personality to your otherwise basic look. This bucket hat that can be styled a number of ways is the perfect accessory to bring no matter where you go. 



‘Do it well

People often overlook their hair when planning their outfits but skipping on it isn’t doing your OOTD any favours. Tying your hair in a sleek updo or styling it into beachy curls has their own charms, but can undoubtedly take much time. If you want to skip the hassle, small style tweaks like keeping your hair off your face with hair clips would do. Topshop’s chunky crystal stone hair clips gives off a cute, girly vibe without being too childish-looking.



Buckle up

Accessorising with a belt is probably one of the most common style tips you’ve heard, but we can’t deny how greatly it affects your look. Despite its simplicity, a belt like Loro Piana’s round buckle belt gives your ensemble a whole different character. Cinching your waist with one helps elongate your figure and emphasize your curves, so you’re not left with a straight and boring silhouette. 



Bring a bag

As far as all style tips go, this one’s already a given. Obviously, a bag is a lady’s must-have when going out. Still, some of us tend to fall into the trap of thinking that one shoulder bag is good for any and every day. Take advantage of the different styles, colours, and textures to feed your needs and fashion goals. For an ever-sophisticated yet still casual look, bring this Longchamp belt bag along on a chill day out.



Step it up


Black high-heeled boots

Chloé Fall/Winter 2019 Betty Boots, price unavailable


Last but not the least, let your feet do the talking and wear a pair of shoes that make a statement. Don’t be afraid to mix genres. If you’re wearing some billowy feminine dress, try out footwear that gives of the opposite vibe. If you’re looking for something edgy, watch out for the Chloé Betty Boots coming out this September.

Our “I Am Her” series features the female movers and shakers of the industry to learn how femininity and power coincide beautifully and seamlessly together.

Zulvanny dropped into the Malaysian scene with her eclectic, yet elegant personal style, exuding all the confidence of someone who knows exactly how she wants to be seen. A veritable millennial Patricia Field, her humble demeanour and determination will see her far in this ever-changing industry. So of course, we wanted to pick her brain not just for style tips but career lessons as well. Read on for our chat.





Fill in the blanks: I am a ______ and a ______.


"I am a stylist and a go-getter."  

What made you choose this career path?

"To be honest, this is not what I originally planned to pursue. I was doing medicine when I decided to take a break and try my hand at fashion styling. I think the 'eye' for styling came naturally to me, but back then it wasn’t something that I thought I could make a living from; it was more like a hobby.

While I was studying, I watched a ton of live concert videos of my favourite artists on YouTube and that got me interested in the way they chose to dress, which affects their overall image and the impact of their performances. I did more research and found that their individual styles were created by a professional stylist. From then on, I knew that I wanted to be one, too."




Share with us a regular day in your life as a fashion stylist.


"Every day is different. I generally start my days checking and replying emails before heading out for meetings, loans and returns, fittings, sourcing items or attending events — the list goes on.

There are times when I have to travel to four to six places in a day, including errands for pending jobs, which means a lot of downtime in the car. But it’s still busy because I have to always keep things moving. I could also be on set shooting for campaigns, music videos, TV shows, etc. These typically take all day, and music videos generally need me to be on set two to three days at a time." 



Tell us a little more about the fashion landscape in Malaysia.


"I really do think it's growing, especially when it comes to the awareness of needing fashion stylists. More and more people are realising the importance of having a stylist to create a unique brand and image that helps them stand out. It’s also, in part, thanks to social media as people are more conscious of how they look and how they portray themselves.

I have also noticed that there is a growing number of up and coming stylists, which makes me pretty happy because they are more experimental, which leads to more ideas and new interpretations of style. All good things to keep the fashion scene here constantly on the up and up."




What makes a great stylist?

"It’s really subjective. Every stylist has their own style, but you have to have the eye for it because each job and client is different. You always have to consider the client’s personality, personal style, the image they want to project, and more.

I truly believe that style is an extension of who you are and it’s important that we dress to bring out the best in ourselves, but never to change who we are; I think the same way when I dress clients. I also place value in comfort, whether it is physical or emotional — you are only going to look as good as you feel. But the most important thing is being a team player and being able to work according to a brief plays a big part in building a great stylist. "





Who are your idols/mentors/inspirations?

"I learned a lot from my mentor, Haida Yusof. I’m forever thankful for all the lessons I came to learn during my time assisting her. She’s always encouraged me to step out of my comfort zone and go out there to take every opportunity possible to further my career."



How do you define a job well done?


"It’s a combination of being able to meet the brief, while also ensuring that my client feels good about themselves and are comfortable in the options I provide them."




What is your favourite job to date and why?

"So hard to choose — every job comes with its own good memories!" 

Share with us five essentials in your Clozette.

"Black tailored pants, classic sunglasses, classic black turtleneck top, a good pair of denim pants, and dainty jewellery."

  



Give our readers with similar aspirations some tips, tricks, or advice.

"Be determined, diligent, and assist. Having the passion for styling can only take you so far. Most people don’t see the hard work that happens behind the scenes, so if you really want to get into this as a profession, experience is important.

Assist an established stylist if you can and be sure to be proactive while you’re on the job to make sure you learn how the industry works as a whole, as well as improve your styling skills. Also, say yes to every opportunity as long as you can commit to it. The competition is stiff, so bring your A-game all day, every day."
