She’s giving gothic and a whole lot of Vivienne Westwood-inspired elegance. Evonne is a fashion influencer and stylist from Malaysia who’s active in the local fashion scene. Notice her one-of-a-kind jewellery pieces and signature strong eyeliner that completes her looks—truly a maximalist when it comes to dressing up. No matter edgy cut-out tops of cute princess dresses, she always knows how to add a hint of punk to stay on-brand. Her pictures show the importance of cohesiveness when it comes to styling. From outfit, accessories, hair to makeup, all elements have to be styled according to your aesthetic to fully show a distinct style.

She’s a student, pre-loved clothing business owner, and fashion influencer who constantly travels between Liverpool and Kuala Lumpur. If you’re looking for an edgy, city It-girl inspo, look no further. Occasionally, we also see her nailing the bohemian beachy aesthetic or mixing things up between cute and cool—she’s basically a style shapeshifter. Her outfits show that you don’t really have to stick to one specific style. Keep an open mind and break the rules—mix things up and you’ll find how opposites might surprisingly go well together.
