How We Style Bling Ribbon Choker [COLLABORATION]

by - 12:52 PM

Thank God It’s Friday – meaning, a new post is up for you. Yay!
As promised in my previous OOTD post, here’s my first fashion styling collaboration with other bloggers in town: Mindy and Redha!

A little background story: around 3 weeks ago, we went to Pakuwon Mall and did a mini shopping spree there because all fast fashion brands were doing further reduction on their sale items. H&M was not missed, of course, since it’s my favorite brand – even though the sale season in H&M was just like started and the price is, ahem, still high for #kiasu Chinese like me and Mindy.

After browsing through the clothes rack a little bit, we got bored and processed to the accessories aisles. I saw this bling ribbon choker few days before our hang out at Instagram, and I was like, maybe there’s few left in store. I was right! The price of this beautiful bling choker was crazily cheap too: IDR 25,000

2 dollars for such a baby. Of course, I strongly encouraged the other girls to get it too. HAHA HAHA HAHA.

Long story short, after buying few more items (that will be styled together in another collaboration post too, shh!) we decided it would be cool for us to make a fashion styling collaboration and show how we wear this choker based on our very own personal style. 

The theme was monochrome, because the main point of the look was already very eye-catchy and outstanding. Without further ado, here’s how we style it:

As always, I went with my signature red lips and simple-but-cute style. My look was inspired by French artists – hence the beret – but with strong cute Japanese school girl vibes in it. I picked white, off-shoulder smock top and paired it with a navy tennis skirt.

The skirt was a little bit too short, so I added fine knit legging and wear my new Lita boots. A red, studded heart purse is perfect to match my lip colour and add a little mysterious, gothic vibe to the whole outfit. To accessorize more, I picked simple hook earring and beret-like head piece.

The ultimate styling rule for a 4”9 like me is: wear cropped top and high-waisted bottom to create an illusion of longer legs and taller figure! If you love wearing boots but afraid that they would make you look shorter, just wear same-coloured tights as I did. Solid tights will do better to create the illusion of longer legs than a patterned, knit legging like mine – but it’s kinda boring so I wear this baby. Just make sure they’re well-tucked in to the boots, so some part of your skin will not be revealed and make people realize how long your legs actually are ~

I personally think this outfit is very me: it’s simple, has strong gothic/mysterious vibe – but nonetheless still cute as ever – and boots!
