My last outfit may have been all about the men-inspired look, but that doesn’t stop me from playing dress up from time to time. Taking out a summer-esque wardrobe for one last spin (thanks to the unbelievable weather we’ve had last week), I’m sharing one of my fave skirts of all time. Circle skirts are no easy to feat to pull off, especially for a girl like me (I’m a bit on the stockier side). The key to making this look work? A belt. Cinch the waist for that hourglass shape.

The floral lace design is one of the reasons why I bought this piece, so to make sure I get a lot of wear out of it, I love teaming this skirt with a casual tee for the everyday. Paired with an ultra blingin’ statement necklace, I chose a sheer navy top to adds a hint of sultriness to juxtapose this rather feminine skirt. But making sure my overall outfit was not too OTT for the daytime (what, you mean regular people don’t wear this to lunch?), I opted for a relatively neutral palette in the accessories department – casual heeled sandals, a leather satchel and a vintage pair of sunglasses – to tone down the look only just a tad. No one said anything about blending into the crowd.

Dapper Gent :: Meet Christian

Hi everyone,

Just saying a quick hello on this fine Saturday with another one of Tse Parfait’s Dapper Gents, Christian!

So excited to have another one of our stylish friends featured on our blog. We really hope you’re enjoying this new segment as much as we are!

Not going to lie, but I was really nervous at first because I’ve never photographed guys and did not know how to direct them to pose a certain way. Let’s face it, guys just can’t pose the same way as girls. 😛

In the end, I just told them to be natural by walking around, while I feverishly caught those “in between” moments whether they were buttoning up the shirt, rolling up the sleeves, or fixing the watch.

Conscious that they were a tad uncomfortable since it was their first time doing something like this, really grateful to have such great friends who were super patient with me, while I madly clicked my camera around them.

Can’t wait to have Christian here on the blog again!

Dapper Gent :: Meet Kevin

Hi everyone,

Since we have Style Muses for our lovely female friends, it only makes sense to have a gentleman’s division to inspire our male readers out there. So let us introduce to you our exciting and newest segment: Dapper Gents.

Even though we are naturally drawn to ladies’ fashion to get some fresh ideas for ourselves or just to admire (more the latter), we love to also look at men’s fashion for inspiration sake.

So meet our first dapper gent and friend, Kevin. He was actually one of the few who introduced me to the world of street style blogs including my current favourite blogger of all time, Garance Doré.

Getting ready for the cooler season, Kevin has put together a look perfect for the fall. Love the way he put together basic fall pieces and personalized it with accessories.

Hope you like his style as much as we do! Cannot wait to have him on our blog again soon!

Thanks for reading!
