5 Fashion Rules You CAN Break

5 Fashion Rules You CAN Break

You see a new fashion trend and got some good fashion tips you like on Pinterest and decide to try it yourself. You stare at yourself in the mirror and think you look pretty darn good, but then the voice at the back of your head goes ‘but this looks a bit weird’. After a while, you decide against it and go back to wearing what you normally do. Sound familiar?

A lot of us don’t experiment or stay in our comfort zone because we’re so afraid of what people might think. But in Shoppr, we believe you should always be confident in whatever you wear! Go against the norm, break all the fashion rules and always be unapologetically you ;)

Break Fashion Rule 1: Try print on print, on even more prints!

We’ve all heard this before: “don’t wear print on print, it’ll look too messy!” We get it, you feel obliged to make your outfit more minimalistic.. But if you think that polka dot shirt goes well with that striped skirt, go right ahead! Find the right patterns that complement each other (or heck, they don’t have to either!) and you’ll notice that a beautiful mess is still beautiful.

Break Fashion Rule 2: Oversized clothes won’t eat you up

A lot of us are told that we should only wear clothes that fit perfectly, but do we really have to? Oversized clothes won’t make you look ‘big’, it won’t devour your frame or silhouette, and it definitely will not make you any less fashionable. Oversized blouses and tees are a trend, really! They give you that casual yet sophisticated touch, especially if paired with sleek pants or denim shorts!

Break Fashion Rule 3: Bare them midriffs confidently

Another ‘fashion rule’ we may have heard is that we should always cover up our stomach, especially if we don’t boast a set of toned abs. If you feel more comfortable not showing it, that’s fine. But if you do want to bare your midriffs, but you don’t have them Kylie Jenner abs, bare them anyway! What you wear is a reflection of who you are, never let people alter it for you. If wearing crop tops make you feel great, listen to Nike and just do it.

Break Fashion Rule 4: It doesn’t have to always match

May it be colours, patterns, style… we always try to match our clothes. Yes, matching clothes gives off a more ‘blended’ look, making it somewhat more cohesive. But don’t let this be your #1 guide at all times. Mix and match around freely- even if your bag don’t match with your shoes- and find a balance that you’re ultimately satisfied with. Remember, you don’t always have to match your shoe to your bag, to your top, to your bottom...you get the point!

Break Fashion Rule 5: Accessorize as you much as you like

Wear all the accessories you want,” said no one ever. But you most definitely can! Don’t only wear one accessory because that’s the ‘limit’, if you want to layer your necklaces (which is so easy to pull of!), wear rings AND dangly earrings at the same time, be our guest! It’s all about trying out what works best for you, and accessorising as much (or as little) as you please.

Yuna Proves That Modesty and Fashion Can Work Well Together!

Yuna Proves That Modesty and Fashion Can Work Well Together!

She’s making waves wherever she goes, and we can’t help but feel proud of our very own Yuna! She shares her voice through her soulful music, and now she has another message to spread; modesty and fashion can indeed look good together.

#1 Layerings

Yuna does a lot of layering with her clothing. May it be with outerwear (coats, kimonos, jackets), or accessories (colourful scarves), or maybe even both at the same time! Try experimenting with different layers (if it’s not too hot) and mix and match around.

#2 Bright Prints & Colours

Yes, you can have the best of both worlds and wear both bright prints and colours. Yuna proves this right as she attends Coachella (we’re jealous!) wrapped in funky prints, colourful pieces and a whole lot of confidence.

#3 Oversized Coats

They’re cool, comfortable and gives your appearance an instant lift. Just like Yuna, pair them with simple basics like leggings, sneakers and tees for a chic contrast.

#4 Headscarves

Of course, the signature headscarf! Yuna says (many times, we might add) that it is NOT a sign of oppression. In fact, she feels even more confident in it. And we say, you do you, girl!

What to Dress for Events

By Yi Jun

What to Dress for Events

Every morning, we all have that “what should I wear?” thought popping in our minds. But before an important event, that sentiment increases tenfold. We all (usually at the last minute) try to find that perfect dress for fancy occasions! From weddings to family gatherings, we’ve come up with a guide on dresses for you to look your best!

For: Family Dinners

Whether it’s your parent’s anniversary dinner or your 1 year old cousin’s birthday bash that he/she probably won’t remember, family gatherings are inevitable.

Maxi dresses are great for occasions like these as they’re easy to style with! You can add on any extra clothing or accessory according to the occasion, and looks good even if you choose not to. Too hot for your liking? Skater dresses are your next best choice as it can be worn for both casual or fancy events.

Family gatherings don’t happen frequently, but it’s great to keep a few of these dresses in your wardrobe in preparation!

Dresses for Family Dinner

For: Office Parties

We all go for the free food, let’s be honest here. However, just because it’s free food doesn’t mean you shouldn’t dress appropriately!

Midi dresses and shift dresses have the appropriate length for office events. Plus, you can move around easily in these dresses to mingle around or just help out in cleaning up after the event. If it’s a casual setting, wear a cardigan and flats; if it’s a fancier get-up, amp it up with accessories and low-heels.

Bonus: Since these dresses are already office-appropriate, you can wear them for work too! Just throw on a blazer and some heels. Perfect transition outfit!

Dresses for Office Parties

For: Meetings

It’s not an actual event, but it is one you should dress up accordingly for! Again, follow the knee-length rule and remember that blazer!

A great choice for meetings is the peplum dress. The structure of the dress is simple yet classy, and flatters any body type. Another option for you is everyone’s classic go-to: the shirt dress. May it be plain, striped, long-sleeved, or buttoned, they’re perfect for formal events. Just make sure you go for the midi ones!

Dresses for Meetings

For: Fancy Dates

Finally, your beau is bringing you somewhere fancy-shmancy! Whether for a romantic dinner date overlooking the cityscape view or to watch a Broadway Musical (you probably won’t get to see Hamilton, but you can check out other awesome events here), you need a stand-out dress.

Sheer dresses are feminine and elegant, and comes in a huge variety for you to choose from! They stand out well from the rest of the dresses, and will serve you well on your romantic night out. Bodycon dresses work great too, but you might want to bring along a coat or a shawl in case it gets too chilly. (make sure it’s not too skimpy as well)

Dresses for Fancy Dates

For: Weddings

You know it’s the ‘season of love’ when you get a whole bunch of invitations to attend weddings. Sometimes you get invitations from your mum’s best friend’s son’s wedding, and you’ve only met him once. Whatever it is, it’s still a joyous occasion! *cue in wedding bells*

There’s an unspoken rule when it comes to weddings, try not to go over-the-top. Wherever that came from, we second it. It’s the bride’s day to shine, and that in itself deserves to be celebrated! Go for lace dresses as it fits the love theme really well; cocktail dresses for that sexy yet stylish vibe. Just remember to avoid white!

Dresses for Weddings

For: Prom

It’s going to be a night to remember (cue in that catchy High School Musical song), so make it count! With a huge variation of prom dresses to choose from, you’ll find that exact dress you’ve been looking for here. We won’t say much, cause’ we know just how much you want this night to be perfect for you!

In case you’re still trying to figure out what dress to wear, here’s a few top choices:

Mermaid dresses: A dress with a flowy end at the bottom, named ‘mermaid’ because it resembles a mermaid tail. Perfect if you want a balance between subtle and extravagant!
Princess dresses: Similar to the mermaid dress, but more poofy at the top. You’ll definitely feel like a princess in this one!
Ball Gown: Almost everyone’s first choice, the ball gown looks like the Cinderella gown you’ve seen in the movies: poofy and made from a lot of sheer material from the waist down!

A Twist to Your Everyday Denim

By Yi Jun

A Twist to Your Everyday Denim

We all know denim will never go out of style (thank you, gods of fashion) and it’s because they’re so versatile and easy to style that innovative designs keep on emerging. Here’s a few that we love, and you might wanna try before everyone else does.

Twist: Patch Denim

From its first debut on runway shows to having A-Listers (ahem, Margot Robbie) rocking the jeans patch, customized jeans are making its appearance everywhere. If you’re thinking “I’m too old for this trend”, just think of it as Pokemon Go: give it a try and see if you like it.

Twist: Embroidered Denim

Similar to the patch denim, embroidered denims have patterns attached, but are stitched on and will be there as long as your denim lives. Go with an embroidered denim jacket for that boho effect!

Twist: Printed Denim

Okay fine, it’s not really a new twist, but it was slightly off the radar but now slowly making its way back into the present. Camouflage prints are street-infused and look chic with simple tops.

Twist: Frayed Denim

Not as popular as the ripped denim, but this gem deserves some recognition. Great for those that want to show off their bohemian side!

You know what looks great with jeans? Sneakers. Not a fan of jeans, you say? Cigarette pants are your next best choice. They’re versatile and add that touch of class to your outfit!
