Vivien’s 5 Fashion Rules For Timeless Style
Being a mother of two doesn’t stop Vivien Yap from being stylish. Even when she’s focused on making sure her kids look cute, she doesn't forget about herself.
There are 5 main rules when it comes to Viven’s style:
1. Invest in Quality Basic Pieces
"Every girl needs some basic tank tops, camisoles and comfortable t-shirts in their wardrobe. When you happened to find that piece that fits you perfectly, do not hesitate to get it in basic colours such as white, black and nude. There are endless ways to style these staples!”
2. Shop When You Travel
"I love shopping and collecting pieces from overseas travels! Vintage and local boutiques are my must-visit places when I’m abroad. That way, you're guaranteed a unique style and chances of you bumping into people wearing the same outfit back home is almost impossible"
3. Buy Only Statement Pieces
"Don't buy yet another 'ordinary' piece to add to your bursting wardrobe collection. Buy only things that stand out. Think about unique asymmetrical pieces or something with a dramatic touch.”
4. Have Fun With Fashion
"Life is too boring to stick to one style! Step out of your comfort zone and try something that is different from your usual style. I strongly believe that one can carry off anything when worn with confidence! By saying that, you can try to play around with colours. For someone whose wardrobe is made up of 70% black or white clothing, I'm making a mental note to self too - to add a pop of colour to my outfit. The results may be surprising!”
5. Find a Perfect Tailor
"Most of my favourite pieces in my wardrobe have gone through alteration or modification to fit myself better. I always bounce off ideas with my awesome tailor to see how we can further enhance my clothes. So if you have a tailor that you always go to, treat him/her like your best friend! Cause he/she is the best person to look for when you need any creative solutions of fashion inspiration.
Whether you’re a mom or not, these fashion rules apply to all!
