Dressed up Fridays: Mastering the sweater-and-skirt trend effortlessly

Sporty meets girly

This week, we're taking on the most comfortable yet chic trend (apart from athleisure) that is, how to pull off a sweater without looking passé


Here's how not to look like you're about to embark on a Netflix and chill session. Wear a sweater that isn't conventional. This stretch-crepe sweatshirt by Christopher Kane has a black and white crochet appliqué along the sleeve with ribbed trims for a sporty-chic effect.

A statement skirt this week comes in the form of Sportmax's stretch satin-back crepe Giro skirt that features a bold blue, black, and white geometric motifs in the form of stripes. Apart from its flattering pattern, we love its wrap-style structure for a contemporary look.

While sneakers might be an obvious choice to this sporty-inclined getup, go with a mod vibe in Stella McCartney's iconic platform brogues. This eco-friendly faux leather pair is made from Italy and includes cutout at the sides with serrated rubber soles.

Add a brilliant pop of colour with Loewe's Barcelona shoulder bag in primary red. Its new shape sees a distinctive detailing that's taken from the brand's archives—that standout metallic triangle closure with an embossed logo.

Complete your Friday #OOTD with a showstopper pair of sunglasses for that diva-esque look without trying too hard. Cue Chanel's latest 'Pantos' Signature sunglasses in black from its Autumn/Winter 2016 collection—those mirrored lens are to-die-for.

Is it obvious that we're stoked about Kat Von D launching in Sephora Malaysia? In any case, complement your outfit with a boost of colour over your lips, and no better lippie comes in the form of Kat Von D's best-selling liquid lipstick. A creamy pigmented formula that glides like a gloss but has a matte finish? Enough said
