What do you pack for a super-stylish holiday? We ask fashion blogger Andrea Chong, guest judge on How Do I Look? Asia Season2
1. Denim’s A Dream
The denim shirt is Andrea’s travel must-have. “I can wear it with anything. Pair with jeans for something casual, or with a pencil skirt for a formal touch.”
Denim shirt, $100, from GAP.
2. Smart Investments
“I think bags are a great investment. If you’re planning to buy luxury bags on your travels, get one for work and another that’s more casual.”
Bag, $4,140, from Saint Laurent.
Proenza Schouler bag, $1,890, from Club 21 Women.
3. The Versa tile Tank TOP
“A white tank top with thin straps is so useful to have in your bag. I can pair it with my outerwear or layer it over other items!”
“Pack in more tops and less bottoms. It helps save space. Whenever you change a top, you pretty much get a brand new look!”
Tank top, $14.90, from UNIQLO.
4. Finding Cover
A good jacket is essential. “You’ll need it to cover up with when you’re cold, and it also helps to protect from the sun.”
Trench coat from Topshop.
5. Keep It Pencil Sharp
“You can wear it with heels for a dressy occasion,” Andrea shares. “But then tuck a T-shirt into it and the whole look becomes more fun and casual.”
River Island skirt, $97.90, from zalora.com.
6. Shoe In
Andrea packs just one pair of sneakers and one pair of heels when she travels. “After that, I pick my outfits based on these shoes.” Brilliant!
Creepers, $189, from Puma.
Strappy heels, $83.90, from Pedro.
7. White Hot
Instead of black trousers, choose white. “White cigarette pants look smart and they’re a little baggy, too, so they’re comfortable.”
Michela pants, $99, from In Good Company.
How Do I Look? Asia Season 2, with Jeannie Mai as host, is on DIVA TV Asia (Starhub Channel 513 or Singtel TV Channel 303), Mondays at 8 pm.
