Hi everyone,

How has your weekend been? Not sure about you but I am certainly more careful these days - to purchase clothing items made from natural materials and reading clothing labels more closely to hold out from synthetic materials such as polyester which harms the environment from the large amount of chemical waste it produces during the manufacturing and production process. There is obviously a big contention about how ethical cotton is.. but I guess I will look into that a little more and update you shortly. 

Meanwhile, am loving this gorgeous Audrey Sleeveless cotton top from @naladesigns , which is also available at @thewyldshop_joochiat with its  Heaven Lotus design. This is one such great buy I keep mix and matching, pairing with various bottoms especially in the hot tropical and humid weather. The button down detail at the back is cute and the large floral print adds that retro vibe to the top. And if you have been following me closely, I am certainly going retro these days. Another way to keep fashion sustainable is to recycle items in your wardrobe. Buy vintage.

Also supporting another environmentally conscious retailer and designer @maishaconcept, is this cool,  chic and comfortable ( 3C) Chaand cotton skirt. The straps which ties up the sides adds that twist to an otherwise regular maxi skirt. The handprinted patterns on the skirt makes it also very unique where no two skirts look exactly the same. Slight imperfections make the outfit even more original and authentic. 

Pairing this skirt with the Audrey top and matching it with a 1960s midollino vintage bag from @avintagetale, creates a retro yet contemporary outfit which one can trend both on weekends and even on weekdays. I love mix and matching prints which most people are scared to do as the clash in prints sometimes may not necessarily work out fashionably but as I have always said " Fashion is about having fun"!!  Throw a white blazer over, high heels and let the side straps down for the skirt and one can take this look into the office. Pull up the skirt's straps, swop the heels for sandals or slides, sans jacket and a weekend look is ready to go.

Hope you enjoy this outfit and see you soon!

Love,
Simone xoxo

How To Style Different Gold Necklaces To One Dress

Saturday, October 05, 2019 Simone - Your Style Architect 7 Comments










Hi everyone,

Hope you are enjoying your weekend so far. Since launching my IGTV videos on a segment on "Ways To Wear......", some of you had written to me to get more ideas on how to keep fashion sustainable seeing that often, you would have a look in mind for an outfit but find it a little difficult to get creative on how to mix and match it to create different looks with that single piece. Therefore "Ways To Wear...." videos is my little take on how to keep fashion sustainable and for this week, I would like to focus on how one could trend different accessories to the same piece of outfit to create different looks.

In this post, I would like to focus particularly on styling various gold necklaces  to a single dress/ outfit to create different looks. If you had missed my previous posts, I had recently showcased " 4 Ways To Wear A Slip Dress" on Instagram ( check out the IGTV video here) as well as " Ways To Style A Maxi Skirt" ( see post here). With this button down dress, I wanted to showcase its versatility for various occasions simply by mix and matching sdifferent styles of gold necklaces to this outfit.

In this look above, I styled it with a long necklace for a Urban Chic vibe, but in the video attached below, you can also see how to style this dress with a chunky gold choker for a casual look or with a dainty gold necklace for a more classic look.

I still like the seashell jewellery craze but taking it up a notch with a gold necklace rather than a resort style statement jewellery that one would find in the markets.
APM Monaco Seashell Necklace

Seeing Christmas is not too far off, perhaps a customised gold necklace to give your Best Friend / girlfriend?

Oak and Luna Customised Name Necklaces

I hope you enjoyed this styling on gold necklaces and do share with me in the comments below which is your favourite gold necklace style ( as seen the video ) or perhaps one you would like to see me style for future ootds?

Love to hear from you.
