Screen shot 2013-08-23 at 8.01.43 AME.vil is, by far, one of the most unique clothing lines I have come across. The designs are bold and edgy. Every time I review a new collection of theirs, I find looks that are new and refreshing. Some popular looks have included graphic tees styled with large hairpieces and funky earrings (a fun look that looks inspired by a Cyndi Lauper video!) The Fall 2013 collection focuses more on giving off a rock & roll vibe. Screen shot 2013-08-23 at 3.02.47 PM

Screen shot 2013-08-15 at 2.59.50 PMAgain and again, I preach the ideology that if you’re going to splurge, splurge on dresses! Why do I love dresses so much?I find them more comfortable, more convenient, easier to style, and altogether, more flattering!  I’ve been told I “clean up  nicely”, when in reality, it takes me a minute to throw on a simple black dress and heels. Blaque Label dresses are highly coveted for their beautiful designs. Whether you choose a classy high-low, or a daring deep V dress, you’ll look fierce!

Screen shot 2013-08-07 at 12.24.11 PMWith school right around the corner, I’ve compiled a list of wardrobe necessities. What tops the list so far?

Graphic tees.

They’re edgy, they’re comfortable, and they’re the best foundation pieces of any outfit. When I want to dress casually and stylish at the same time, I turn to my graphic tees. They’re simple, yet fun. My go-to looks involve pairing the the graphic tee with a long cardigan, tucked into either a tight skirt or high-waisted pants. I love wearing denim as a bottom, such as the Siwy Camilla Cut-off Shorts in Acid featured below!

Look great while also keeping yourself cool in the summer heat! Top Secret takes bandeaus and tank tops to another level. Although usually treated as basics worn under see-through shirts, Top Secret bra tops have such stylish patterns that they can be worn as tops themselves. Some of my favorite summer looks consist of bandeaus paired with high-waisted bottoms, such as shorts or flowy skirts. I like to add one accessory, whether it be a colorful piece of jewelry, a hairpiece, a bag, or a belt, to really make the outfit pop.

If You Could Only Spend On 1 Thing This Summer…

Thursday, June 16th, 2011

Keep it light and pink!

One of the outstanding key pieces this season is Isabel Marant’s pink shorts as seen on their Spring/Summer 2011 show. It has since spawned a slew of copies from other brands and amongst which is Siwy’s gorgeous Siwy Camilla shorts in Desert Rose.

The dreamy aesthetic of the dusty pink wash blends well into a holiday at your favorite beach resort destination if you can get away somewhere this summer.  A white knit sweater or a white loose tank like the Wildfox dreamweaver tank (as seen above) seem to be the ideal escorting pieces to a well-dressed summer beach day or night out.

Not going anywhere for the summer like me? I am considering getting the hannah version of the desert rose wash instead which I can quite happily marry with my daily work and weekend outfits. Personally, I am a little bored of the usual blues, blacks and greys that you get with regular jean washes anyway and have never been a fan of brightly coloured denim. I see this dusty pink wash as a natural trangression from my favorite and overworn Siwy Hannahs in One Love.

So whether or not you’re going to be basking under the sun or sitting under the lights of your office, a little touch of pink is sure to lift your spirits up a little and make this summer a bit sweeter than usual.

Silver Summer Picks

Summer may be a little over a season away but who is to say you cannot inject a bit of its sparkle into your current season palette? My appetite for silver is an all year round affair and these pieces I currently love would easily blend into most occasions.

The Chrissy L Entrapment necklace (as seen on beach model) would sit happy over a knitted dress for the current season but doubles as a glamorous choice over swimwear at the beach. I personally love it over a one-shouldered dress worn together with Marcia Moran’s Titanium Triple Drop Tribal earrings for an equally dramatic look. Similarly, it is a great classic piece that will marry any evening dress.

For everyday wear, the Adina Small Horseshoe necklace would be the minimalist’s idea of a little daily boost, both in style and in luck. It is the best piece for fuss-free accessorizing, especially if you prefer cool over glamour.

Everyday Combat

Sunday, January 2nd, 2011

There is something quite effortlessly sultry about the combat trouser (cargo pants), a 90’s trend that girl group All Saints were famous for. It was refreshingly sexy at that time because the girls looked good laid-back and comfortable as compared to the Spice Girls who were known for their over-the-top glamour outfits. The combat style on women catered to a different set of males who thought of sexiness as something effortless and that could be why the style was relatively prevalent for the longest time.

Last year, a few premium denim companies tried to revive the trend back and it got the seal of approval from some commonly style-stalked hollywood celebrities like Ashley Tisdale, Kim Kardashian, Rihanna, etc. With 90’s trends coming on strong at the moment, this is one style to definitely consider loving again. After all, who would deny comfort and cool, especially now that it’s back in everyone’s favourite skinny leg style?

Even if you do not fancy the big pockets on the combat trousers, you can easily cheat by getting jeans in an earthy tone like the Siwy Hannah Slim Crop in Rebellion, a personal favourite of mine.  I would pair with a slinky romantic top and heels or even combat boots if I wanted to take the look to the next level.

What could be a better way to start the new year with a new effortlessly sexy look? Check out for the following combat styles by Siwy on Manhattanite!

1. Siwy Rose Drainpipe jeans in Moss

2. Siwy Marielle Chino Pants in Blacksand or Moss

3. Siwy Valentine Cargo Pants in Blacksand or Moss
