Enjoying this season’s daily down pours and the influx of sweater weather appropriate wear (or maybe not), we’re here to give you another episode of StyleWatch. Having watched a few season stylistas on campus for a while now, we’ve finally gotten the opportunity to photograph them this week — and here they are:
Sally Kim | South Korea | 1st Year Psychology and Cognitive Neuroscience
Sporting a sports luxe green sweatshirt dress, whilst twinning with her 7-eleven coffee cup (everyone needs a morning pick-me-up am I right?) — Sally’s green ensemble screams quirk so loud, Zooey Deschannel would stand no chance. If you fail to plan, you plan to fail; and Sally’s outfits are normally put together the night before. When asked about her inspirations, she says that people-watching and looking at her mom’s old photographs has inspired her style the most. Thus, it’s safe to say that Sally’s got it from her mama.
Zamir Ariff Zainal | Kuala Lumpur | 2nd Year International Communication Studies
Spotting Zamir round the campus corridors, IGNITE’s music editor can be found wearing avant garde button-ups and shorts to match almost every other day (and we’re not complaining). This monochromatic look is definitely minimalism done right and we love the subtle contrast brought about by his brown tassled shoes. His style fluctuates from overstated monochromatic silence to paint factory explosion — so if you’re on the hunt for style inspiration, Zamir’s definitely one to keep a look out for.
Shirt: Forever 21
Shorts and shoes: Topman
Michelle Wu | China | 2nd Year Finance, Accounting and Marketing
We’re always up for a good pinafore and Michelle’s definitely doing this so much justice. Turtle necks and an overall-style dress on top, her outfit is giving off F/W16 vibes albeit Malaysian heat. Putting detail in perspective when planning an outfit, Michelle thinks about every aspect of her look right down to the earrings. Keeping up to date with the season’s trends from high fashion labels, she tends to shop high street labels which sport a similar aesthetic for that season.
Dress and top: MONKI
