Summer’s here, well, when isn’t it summer in Singapore? As much as it’s tempting to strip down to deal with the menacing equatorial climate, it’s not always appropriate to wear skimpy clothing, and neither is donning suffocating necklines and floor-grazing hems the most attractive or weather-friendly. Lucky for us, it seems like designers have come up with a stylish and classy in-between – peek-a-boo pieces.
Specifically, showing flashes of skin in the most unexpected places and in a subtle, sexy way. It’s a daring move, and when strategically placed, suggestively shows off skin in the most understated manner. The best part? It lets you beat the heat while fully clothed. Try it for yourself.
If you love a two-in-one piece of clothing, this is the ideal top to don this season with some tailored trousers or a leather skirt. It also comes with discreet clips that let you switch things up by doing away with the turtleneck and sleeve, leaving a one-shouldered silhouette.

Yet another denim jacket? Don’t be fooled. Held by a sponge jersey in the back to hold its shape, this ‘jacket’ is actually a cape with ‘sleeves’ that aren’t actually there. With its slashed sleeves and collar, as well as strategic cut-outs that make this piece out to to be a work in progress, we believe it’s the perfect number for those who rock an edgy, rebellious style.
This elegant crepe dress call to mind a laid-back dinner on deck? We definitely are fans of the understated ruching in the centre and those flattering cutouts that are perfect for showing off that sunkissed glow
To quote the late Karl Lagerfeld, “One is never over-dressed or underdressed with a little black dress.” This may look like just another LBD, but we especially love the simple yet edgy cut-out detail that makes this piece stand out from the rest.
