Fashion

1. Hailey x 6STYLE

Fashion influencer Hailey Teo has recently collaborated with local fashion store 6STYLE to launch a brand new collection featuring fits perfect for casual dates and for the office.

The Primadonna Satin Dress (S$49.90) is a hot favourite, and it sold out in just one minute after its launch! Don’t worry though, backorders are open and you can still get your hands on this beautiful dress with side cutouts.

For those looking to purchase something for work, the Pop the Peach Skirt (S$36.90) is a must-have. This pencil skirt is designed to hug your curves at the right places whilst still providing some stretchiness for additional comfort. The slit at the back also allows you to walk easily without feeling too restricted.

For those who are getting married this year, you would probably have already started shopping for your bridal accessories for the big day.

3. Uniqlo

Uniqlo has added a few new pieces to its Sports Utility Wear collection, with many of them boasting the same sweat-wicking properties as its predecessors.

We tried out the AIRism UV Protection Soft Leggings (S$29.90) and all we can say is that it was buttery-smooth and squat-proof, aka the best kind of leggings you could ever ask for!

The AIRism Mapping Crew Neck Short Sleeve T-Shirt (S$19.90) is a fitted tee with mesh panels for increased breathability. We like that this is fitted enough that it wouldn’t ride up when we’re doing yoga poses, and we like that it is loose enough that it doesn’t restrict any movement.

The concentrate is made by slow steeping and cold brewing premium oolong tea leaves in filtered water for 16 hours. You can drink it on its own, where you’ll get hints of sweet and toasty notes, or mix one part of the concentrate with 1.5 parts milk to get a delicious milk tea beverage.
