Zalora is without a doubt my favourite Singaporean online store. Housing brands like River Island and American Apparel, I love going on their website and always manage to find something I like which is always both a good thing and bad thing (from the perspective of my mother). As summer is here, jumpers and cardigans are vital in all of your summer outfits for those cooler summer nights and days. Be it a chunky over knit or a a printed cardi, I have categorised how to style the staples for this summer.
1. The Print
It's time to get that printed sweatshirt out of the back of your closet and incorporate it into your summer outfits! Printed jumpers like the one above can be hard to style because of over-clashing so my #1 tip would be to keep everything else in the outfit relatively plain and pair with light accessories so that the printed jumper is accentuated.
2. Colour block
One of my favourite styles of jumpers is just a plain jumper. Above are my two favourite ones from Zalora. Layer chunky and statement necklaces with a pair of skinny jeans, a floppy fedora, and your perfect summer outfit is ready! I personally own many plain knits in my closet because they have served to be extremely easy to style with because of the simplicity and versatility to them.
3. The Kimono
I admit that I'm not a fan of the kimono at all because I think it's so overrated and it's been worn by everyone so much that it's become annoying to look at. BUT if you do manage to find a unique style of kimono that no one else seems to have (which is almost impossible nowadays), your outfit can look really good. Kimono's are extremely lightweight which is the quintessential summer wear for overbearing hot days, which is basically all year round for Singapore. I'm not wearing you shouldn't wear it otherwise I wouldn't have posted this, but if you do manage to style it in a unique way away from the mainstream styling, then you are good to go!
4. The classic cardi
If you don't already own a classic cardi like the one above, I suggest you go buy one right now for the summer. It is perfect for almost every occasion and will probably be your most used summer buy this holiday. My #1 tip would be to buy a neutral cardi like hues of cream, silver or brown so it can be easily paired with something bolder to make a statement.
