Tassel Earrings

Go boho and ethnic with a pair of tassel earrings. They are perfect for lazy days and nights by the beach and go really well with a cocktail in hand. We are loving Michelle Chia’s pair and her support for handmade sustainable jewellery.

Slip on trainers

Shoelaces? No thanks, I’m on holiday! Super comfy and on-trend, slip-on trainers are so versatile, they go with practically everything. They are a must-have for that relaxed chic look while “window” shopping! Yasminne Cheng looks like she’s having a ball (or two!).

Accent jewellery

While it is tempting to bring your whole jewellery collection with you on holiday, sometimes, you just need to have one or two accent pieces. Tong Bingyu shows how her Tiffany HardWear necklace adds a little edge to a pretty and girly outfit.

Backpack

Backpack

There’s no looking back, Hayley. Rucksacks may not be the most glam of bags but probably very sensible when there’s the whole world out there to explore.

Knee-high boots

Knee-high boots

Knee-high boots are the lust-have this season for colder climes. Wear them with skin-tight jeans and a floppy polo neck jumper like Ong Aileng for a stylish chic look or try them with an A-line button down skirt, bell-sleeved shirt and a floppy hat if you are feeling retro boho.

Did someone say girl with the pearl earring? We are loving Sharon Au’s ear bling – a pair of classy earrings dials up the glam factor for date nights on holiday.

Pork pie hat

Pork pie hat

The pork pie hat’s flat crown gives it a distinctive silhouette. That’s one reason why it is so popular with hat lovers worldwide. A felt hat will no doubt help you stay warm in winter and keep you looking too cool for school as Tosh Zhang shows us in his get-up.
