UNIQLO Looks We Love Right Now | Clozette
We got a sneak peek of UNIQLO's Spring/Summer Collection and we think it's the perfect combination of casual and chic! Their latest collection is also their newest collaboration with designer Ines de La Fressange. The celebrated "Parisian Chic" author, who was once the face of fashion icons such as Karl Lagerfield and L'Oréal, launched her design career back in 2013. Since then she has been working with UNIQLO Design Director Naoki Takizawa to come up with more & wearable designs suited to the LifeWear concept. 

Now on on their third partnership, Takizawa and de La Fressange has another array of elegant, easy-to-match apparel and accessories. Here are the looks we spotted (and loved) from their collection that we thought would twist up your everyday wear into an effortlessly chic outfit!

Remember all that buzz around sportswear last year? Well, it's here to stay! But this time with a classic approach. We love how this look is normcore and sporty at the same time


When you think of Paris, the first word that comes to mind is "romantic" and this dress looks just like that. We love how versatile this rayon print dress is, perfect to wear on a date or for a casual day full of errands.  




The season of spring and summer spells "vacation" like no other. We love how the UNIQLO and de La Fressange collab is full of classy LifeWear looks fit for a laidback lifestyle.

Another week, another OOTD round up! We scouted some serious style talent from the Fashion Community over the past week that has gotten us really excited about all things fashion.


Here are our top faves for the week, from chic to trendy to oh-so-edgy!

This look from CrystalPhuong is the ideal work outfit. The white and silver pieces and the sudden pop from the red bag creates a good play on colour. Also, we love how the ruffles on the sleeves and the flounce finish of the skirt add a flattering shape on the body.

Although this is a black on black OOTD, we happen to love it so much because it looks polished but still feels super casual. Everything is black but the windowpane pattern on the pants, adding a scene-stealing detail to the overall monochrome look.

Nothing else can make you look fashionable in an instant than a dress and a pair of heels. This look from fashbrown is a play on the classic silhouette, but the bright red floral print makes it "festive" rather than "basic". We think this is a perfect day-to-night look, taking you from work to a dinner date with friends.



Viviannvee

The play on black, white, and silver colours is what makes this look from Viviannvee stand out from the rest. The combination of triangle shapes on the pointed shoes and collar somehow effortlessly blends with the circle details of the round sunnies and bowler hat. Definitely picture perfect!



WenhuiWang

We just love how this look plays on both textures and prints. At first the bright-coloured uneven abstract skort is what grabs your attention, but when you look again you see the adorable surprise of the pineapple prints on the hat. Who would've thought it would work? Yet another amazing look from our ambassador, WenhuiWang!

5 Fashion Don'ts

Ambassador Insider, cforcassan, lets us in on the 5 fashion don'ts to stop doing right now. Are you guilty of any of these?

I won't say that there are rules when it comes to fashion. Who says there's anything wrong with wearing tights as pants or see-through bottoms? You mean there's a fashion police roaming round town, catching anyone who does so? 

But my dear fashion lovers, there is though, a thin line when it comes to knowing what fits you well, and when what you are wearing is garnering too much unwanted attention. Here are some of the, well.... Fashion Don'ts that you might want to avoid the next time you are pulling your hair out, trying to figure out what to wear.

--------------------------

1) (Too) Short Bodycon Dresses


When dressing up, comfort comes into play as well. There's nothing glamorous about wearing really short dresses and having to fuss over accidentally exposing yourself! Why go through all the trouble just to look good? But if need be, you can always wear a pair of tights under it.
2) Really Short Shorts


Wearing short shorts, to the point that your butt cheeks are hanging out is not cool. Choosing a pair of shorts that fit you well is crucial as a wrong fit might accentuate the wrong areas of your thighs, giving you an unflattering silhouette!


3) Over Accessorizing


If done right, accessorizing can make an ordinary outfit look extraordinary. However, adding to many of them might just make the outfit look messy and cluttered. Pick one accessory as the main focus of your outfit and complement it with small, well-placed accessories if need be---such as a sweet pair of earrings to go along with a statement necklace.


4) Lingerie Choices


Ever walked out of the house only to realize that you are wearing the wrong colour lingerie under your partially sheer bottoms? Well I have. Now, I make it a point to double check before I leave the house before I commit such an embarrassing mistake again!


5) The Wrong Fit


Like they say: just because it zips, doesn't mean it fits. As much as you want to dress well, wearing clothes that do not fit just results in non-stop fidgeting and being constantly self-conscious of how you look. Trust me girls, you can ditch all these insecurities when you choose the right pieces for your body.
