Fashion Lookbook By Andrea Chong: Outfits To Take You From Day To Night

It’s that time of the year where dinner parties and events beckon after work, and with the piling Singaporean work schedule, most of us hardly have time to head home to change out into another outfit!

In today’s fashion article I’ve styled 4 looks from New Look Tampines 1 that I feel can bring you from day to night. Even if you’re not rushing down from work but you still have to spend the whole day out, here are some of my not-too-casual/ not-too-formal suggestions.

Most of the clothes, shoes, and accessories featured are available in Tampines 1’s New Look store, located at #02-25/26.

White Collared Shirt, Pink Shift Dress, Statement Necklace – all from New Look Tampines 1

Tired of the plain looking white shirt and/or simple one-tone coloured dress? Try pairing them together like how I’ve done to give your outfit a very preppy classy Zooey Deschanel-inspired look! I added a statement necklace to give the outfit a more formal feel.

Grey Knit Sweater, Mint Lace Pencil Skirt, Statement Necklace – all from New Look Tampines 1
I absolutely love sweater and pencil skirt combinations. Inspired by Parisian street style, I paired the lace pencil skirt with a simple minimalistic top so there won’t too much going on for the outfit. I’ve again, added a matching mint-coloured statement necklace to make the outfit more appropriate for formal occasions.

Colourblock Dress, Black Leather Jacket, Black Clutch, Black Heels – all from New Look Tampines 1

I love how everyday pieces can come together to make an outfit perfect for a night out. Try this pencil dress, leather jacket, heels combination – I’m pretty sure most girls would have these staple items in their wardrobe! This colourblock dress is one of my favourite pieces from New Look, pair it with heels and a leather jacket to give the outfit a complete structured look. I didn’t accessorize the outfit with statement accessories – sometimes less is best!

White Embellished Top, Black Pants, Black Heels, Black Clutch – all from New Look Tampines 1

Another one of my favourite looks from New Look, this top with pants look is simple, classy, chic, and fuss-free. The outfit can totally take you from day to night: put on a pair of ballet flats and a leather biker jacket during the day, and during the night, change into your heels, take off the jacket, add a clutch and you’re D&D ready. Looking back, I definitely would have worn this outfit during my own prom days.
At the end of the day, keep your outfit fuss-free: You’re out the entire day and you want to carry as little as possible. Try experimenting with a little bit of accessorizing, and outerwear styling, you don’t need much to give your entire outfit a different look!
