Show off them shoulders!
Ladies, I think it is safe to say summer is absolutely upon us, and in Hong Kong that means scorching temperatures and outrageous humidity. Even with this extreme weather, us Sassy ladies still want to look and feel amazing! Finding perfect summer outfits to suit all occasions can be a somewhat agonising task. So, we’re here to help solve your summer wardrobe dilemma…
I moved here over a year ago, and last summer I made every clothing mistake possible. Which means this year… I’m ready! I’ve found a look that is perfect for the Hong Kong heat, suits most body types and should definitely be a staple look in any Hong Kong girl’s wardrobe. I’m talking about the ‘off the shoulder’ look.
The ‘off the shoulder’ look can be achieved with a number of different items; think Bardot tops, dresses, playsuits… you name it, I love it! An off the shoulder piece can make an otherwise casual outfit look that little bit sexier. It’s perfect as a day to night outfit, and as we all know, flexibility is key for the fast-paced city life.
Time to bring out your inner Bridgette ladies, here’s a few ways to rock that Bardot top!
Top: H&M; Shorts: Alexander Wang; Sandals: Topshop; Sunglasses: Prada; Necklace: Isabel Marant; Watch: Larsson & Jennings.
This black lace top, paired with some black denim jean shorts, adds a sensual touch to this otherwise grunge look. Opting to accessorise with silver jewellery, I recommend this modern-classic silver watch, pendant necklace and decorative silver-chained sandals. To complete the daytime look, throw on a pair of sunglasses (like these cat-eye beauties), and you’ll be ready for any event.
