How to achieve a timeless look with a modern twist

Hi there!

Misa009

I hope you had a lovely (long) weekend! I’ve partnered up with Misa to create that timeless feel with a modern twist. Misa is a new online clothing store which offers a great range of clothes for the young, modern, independent woman. And you know what? They offer a grand opening discount of 40% now! So what are you waiting for?

Anyhow, let’s get down to business. Here are a few timeless tips I’d like to share with you.

    • B&W.  What is more timeless than black & white combos?  They never go out of fashion. In order to create that modern feel, go for some pieces such as a halter neck top (my latest obsession), some culottes or wrapped trousers. Wrapped trousers add an extra dimension to your look.
    • Natural makeup. Keep it ‘au natural’. Go for earthy eye shadow for an everyday look. Earthy tones suit every eye colour. As for nail polish, opt for a neutral, nude shade. Nude nails are classy, timeless and they can elongate your fingers. 
    • Haircut. Medium, shoulder-length, lob/bob haircuts are considered timeless hairstyles. Simple, classy and oh so feminine.
    • Footwear. Lace-up heels are super trendy at the moment. They are classy and make you feel confident at the same time #girlboss. Plus, they are a stunning addition to any outfit.

    Lovely outfit and I love the top. It’s strange how I love black and white outfits but never actually wear them myself. I think the bright lips also make it more interesting. xx

      Thanks so much! I’m sure black and white outfits will look amazing on you! xo

    You look fantastic and the tips are great. I also find Black & White combinations classy, but like to use trendier pieces to add a modern touch.

    You know that i absolutely love B&W combos, perhaps because as you said they are timeless, but I even love more how you have manage to make such a chic and modern look. BTW, love the shoes and the bag!!!

    You’re so right, black and white is always a must when you’re going for a classic timeless look. And let’s not forget the red lip. Beautiful Vivian.

    Black and white is so much down my alley. I don’ remember the last time I wore a halterneck though, because I never know where to put my bra straps (guess I’ll need a strapless bra:)). PS: I’m going to Vegas in September, and I think that Vegas lipstick would be perfect. It seems to have a slight hint of pink to it?

    • Vivian July 14, 2016 / 2:29 pm

      Hi Mitz! I’m so sorry for being MIA lately..things are really getting crazy here…So much to do in so little time :( But as always, thanks so much for your comment! I wore a strapless bra here, but you can also buy a bra with detachable straps (not the invisible/clear ones, those are outdated hehe). That works too :) Yes, the Vegas Volt lipstick by Mac has a slight hint of peachy coral! My mom got me this and she suggested me to wear this on my wedding day :) xo
