Is it one of those days when you can't shake off feeling blue? Well, we've all had moments like this, and that's the reason we need to help you get that much needed pick-me-up. While we can't hand you a comfy blanket to snuggle in or some ice cream to lift your mood up, we asked Clozette Ambassador and fellow beauty enthusiast Fiona, a.k.a. streetlove, to help us curate a playlist that will definitely help turn your frown upside down.

 


Fiona's playlist combines multiple genres that will keep you pumped at one point and calm and serene the next. So whichever boost you need, you've got it all in here! There's Flex Your Way Out by Sofi de la Torre, which is about standing up for yourself; Run The World by Queen Bey to give out that ultimate girl power vibe, and even Witchcraft from Frank Sinatra to get you into a romantic, slow-dancing mood that can release all that negative energy. 




Going for a run can also help you clear your head. We also have your jogging playlist nailed right here.

Do you remember what it was like to be 13, and how awkward and lost you were while transitioning from being a child to a young adult? As a young girl, a big part of that transition is updating the wardrobe. Suddenly, you had to say goodbye to your beloved clothes that just don't fit your growing body anymore.


The thing is that was just the first of the many life transitions you're gonna go through. And as you step into your late 20s and early 30s, you'll once again have a wardrobe makeover. When you were 13, you picked new clothes that reflect coming-of-age, but now it's time to be savvy with your style so you can look forever fabulous. Here are styles to wear if you want to look younger while still retaining your refined taste. 


Jumpsuits

In a way, jumpsuits are the fun, hip version of the LBD. It's one of those one-piece wonders that you can slip into and make you look instantly polished. With the right colour and style, a jumpsuit can still look classy instead of cutesy. Look for jumpsuits with simple delicate prints or if you're going for monochrome, choose neutrals or muted colours.


Classy Fitted Tops

A good rule of thumb in styling is if it doesn't fit right, don't wear it. Wearing boxy or oversized clothing can make you look frumpy and will definitely make you look older. Instead, flaunt your feminine silhouette with classy fitted tops. By now, we're sure that you can more or less discern which fitted tops are appropriate for you. As a general guide, veer away from designs that are too young and flirty or else you'll risk looking like you're trying too hard. 


Bright Colours And Prints

Just because you're becoming more mature doesn't mean that you should completely avoid bright colours and fun prints. In fact, adding a splash of colour to your outfit can make you look younger. To balance things out, choose a more subdued bottoms if you're already wearing a bright top and vice versa.


Midi Dress And Skirts

Mini dresses may be too young for your taste, but of course, you don't wanna wear maxi skirts all the time. A happy compromise is the chic and sophisticated midi dress. For this, it's best to opt for pastel colours to exude a fresher vibe. 


In styling a midi skirt, the best way to go is to pair it with classy fitted tops or a basic crop top with sleeves. You can also wear it with a sleeveless basic tank top, but make sure to throw in a well-fitted blazer to make the look more appropriate for business-related events.
