Before You Head For Sunday Brunch, Check These Weekend-Ready Outfits For Style Inspo

Rock these stylish outfits inspired this season’s hottest trends.

It’s time to break out the sweatshirts, scarves, and boots, because fall is here. Except, with Singapore’s year-round sweltering weather, these might not be the most practical sartorial options. But before you make a beeline for your typical summer garb, here are some ensembles from the hottest trends in Fall/Winter season that you can still pull off in this tropical climate. #WorkIt.

Jungle Fare
Fall fashion doesn’t mean safe fashion. Go bold by wearing some animal print — one of fashion’s latest trends this season. Opt for those that come in neutral shades such as tan and camel — these earthy tones scream Fall. How about going for a python printed trousers and a pair of faux fur tiger printed heels for some sass? Pair these with a bandeau top, some pearl drop earrings and a netted bag to seal the look. Cropped linen bandeau top by Faithfull the Brand, £125 (S$220), via Net-a-Porter; Python printed polyester wide-leg pants by Zara, S$119; Faux fur tiger printed Mary Jane pumps by Dolce & Gabbana, £645 (S$1,135), via Net-a-Porter; Mesh tote bag by Mango, S$79.90; Gold-tone and pearl single drop earrings by Holly Ryan, AUD$300 (S$299) Silver Bullet
We suggest you keep your silver elements to just one or two pieces per outfit — you don’t want to look like the Silver Surfer. To make your look cohesive, go for all things black for your other pieces, such as this cotton t-shirt and crossbody bag. Add a dash of colour with a statement necklace. Slim fit cotton t-shirt by COS, US$39 (S$53); Metallic pleated skirt by Isabel Marant Étoile, £215 (S$377), via Net-a-Porter; Metallic leather loafers by G.H. Bass x Re/Done, £290 (S$509), via Net-a-Porter; Quilted leather crossbody bag by A.P.C., €355 (S$564); Enamel and metal face motif necklace by Simon Miller, £310 (S$544), via Net-a-Porter High Gloss
The shine does not stop at silver this season. Whether it is latex or patent leather, glossy high-shine fabrics were a star across the runways. Here, we have chosen a crinkled shirt and shorts combination that is bewitchingly bright. Most importantly, it’s made of a lightweight material that can keep you cool and on trend. Pair this with an equally bold straw bag and some cute sliders and you’re good to go. Crinkled bowling shirt by Topshop Boutique, S$169; Crinkled bowling shorts by Topshop Boutique, S$136; Gingham-check bow embellished sliders by Ancient Greek Sandals, £150 (S$263), via Net-a-Porter; Straw tote bag with tassel details by Nannacay, US$290 (S$396), via Moda Operandi; Enamel and silver-tone earrings by Simon Miller, £245 (S$430), via Net-a-Porter Check It Out
From Prince of Wales to tartan, check-printed garments are hot this season. Match a seersucker wrap dress with a pair of trainers for a casual movie date during the weekends. Psst, we’re positive that Cher from Clueless would adore this look. Checkered seersucker wrap dress by Shrimps, US$556 (S$759); Leather and mesh trainers by Veja, US$126 (S$172), via Matchesfashion; Multi-coloured straw bag by Zara, S$99.90; Watch band bracelet by Alexander Wang, US$395 (S$539), via Ssense Vintage Americana
Hold your horses. Recreate the Vintage Americana look (a trend that’s hot this season) with a cropped top, skinny trousers, cowboy boots and a fedora. Tote a bucket bag in an eye-catching green to add a pop of colour. You might not be heading to the stables, but you sure look like you’re ready for the Wild Wild West. Ruffled long-sleeved crop top by Zara, S$99.90; High-waisted skinny trousers by Zara, S$119; Embroidered knee-high suede boots by Isabel Marant, £570 (S$1,002), via Net-a-Porter; Leather bucket bag by Staud, €445 (S$706), via Mytheresa; Rabbit-felt fedora by Maison Michel, US$531 (S$729), via Matchesfashion
