Autumn always seems to be the briefest of seasons. It’s probably because we tend to start seeing holiday decorations so early (and because the days start getting shorter) that it often seems like winter when we’ve only just started adjusting to the end of summer! Whatever the case, winter will soon arrive, and with it will come the opportunity to fully embrace your fall/winter wardrobe. If you haven’t shopped yet for the cooler months, here are a few trends you can embrace with ease.
1 – Sparkling Shoes
It seems almost like an odd suggestion, but if you’ve kept your eye on catalogues and online slideshows of fall and winter looks at all, you’ve probably become familiar with it. Looking through holiday shoes for women, you’ll see a lot of color and shine. Even within this, however, it’s hard not to notice glitter and sparkles! Whether in boots, high-heels, flats, or high-heeled boots for that matter, winter shoes are being encased in glittering exteriors that make them sparkle against some of the duller tones that so often dominate the season. It’s a wonderfully fun trend that seems to be popping up everywhere.
2 – Oversized Turtlenecks
Could there possibly be a cozier trend than an oversized turtleneck? It’s just a big baggy sweater, perfectly toasty for the season, complete with a neck large enough to serve as a sort of raised pillow around your neck and the bottom of your face. Or at least, that’s how I think of it! Oversized turtlenecks popped up on runways for fall and winter fashion throughout the year, coming in all kinds of different colors. You might consider looking for one in a bright shade of red, given that this is about as popular a color as a specific season has seen in years this winter.
3 – Sweater Dresses
Dresses are always some of the most versatile items, and there are certainly occasions to go with full-length options. If you’re looking for a dress for a New Year’s party, you might opt for something more formal. A write-up on recommended attire for an evening out suggested a floor-length dress with heels if you have a fancy dinner. But for your more informal occasions – drinks with friends or family over the holidays, a day out shopping at the mall, etc. – a sweater dress will do just fine this season. There are all kinds of cute options being showcased across the internet and in fashion catalogues, so you have your pick of styles.
4 – Talismanic Jewelry
I’ll be quite honest – I wasn’t aware of this term until I saw it on a list of fashion accessories for the fall and winter, but now I can’t get enough of it! Calling them transmitters of good luck and averters of misfortune, the article pointed to everything from charmed bracelets to feathered necklaces, painting a picture of a fun, personal, and affordable brand of accessory. Broadly speaking, just keep in mind that some offbeat (but far from tacky) jewelry options are certainly making the rounds this season.
If you want to look your absolute best for summer, you simply can’t skimp on the dresses you own in your closet! Without a doubt, certain designs and colours are more common for the summer season than other times of the year. When it comes to choosing the best summer dress styles to add on to your clothing collection, here are few options that you should look into –
Growing up in Singapore, I have met many girls who are petite and almost every one of them complain about their height at some point. Although I am even shorter than most of them and admire ladies who are blessed in the height department, I don’t see a benefit in complaining about a physical attribute I can never change. Rather, I believe it is more constructive to find ways to look better and dressing well is the key.
When it comes to fashion, there are many Do’s and Dont’s of wearing particular items for petites and other types of body shapes. While these tips can be very helpful and make complete sense, I see fashion as a creative form that is meant to be enjoyed and experienced. It is really fun to break the rules and just play with different looks. This is the best way to discover what suits you best, which inevitably helps in the manifestation of your personal style and taste. This process takes time and practice, but those who are adventurous and persistent in experimenting with a variety of styles will eventually cultivate a sharp eye for what works and what don’t.

The off-shoulder top has been getting lots of attention on the fashion scene this season and I can easily see why! It allows a woman to look sexy and feminine without over exposure and can be matched in so many different ways for a stylish look. The butterfly print palazzo pants is a piece I bought from a Bali trip many years ago and as it makes quite a statement already, I thought it will be good to tone down the dramatic design with a classic lace off-shoulder top.
I love statement necklaces as they can glam up a look so instantly and effortlessly, as well as be mixed and matched with many different kinds of outfits! Personally, I like the idea of wearing a chunky piece with a low neckline for some coverage but a statement necklace looks equally beautiful when matched with a simple tee or classic shirt.
The popularity of these jewelry can be seen by the huge variety of designs and colors available in the marketplace. It can get really overwhelming to pick one that you like but it is always fun to browse in my opinion! I have selected some that caught my attention so do check them out in the gallery below!
