Tuck a white jersey tee, pair with a white layered organza skirt, and a white PVC flap bag. True to the words of Mademoiselle Chanel, “Simplicity is the keynote of all true elegance”.

Perfect fabric, perfect print and the perfect cut come a long way. A floral-tiered lace dress is flawlessly complemented by the cat-eye sunglasses. Nothing too sparkly - just statement staples.

Abroad, I found myself drawn to labels like Mara Hoffman for its unconventional cue for linen blend fabrics. Whether if it’s a beach-side wedding or a garden tea-party, it can be re-interpreted for the effortless look.

Je ne sais quoi means a lot of things to me but also kind of nothing. It's effortlessly dressed. It is about emitting a simple sophistication through the versatility of the pieces. 

A rule to abide by is to always stick to the staples. The list usually starts off with an ideal fabric choice of linen, silk and cotton. Then, of course, how can we forget the timeless prints like polka dots and simple florals that will always stay in trend. White and navy, as well as earthly tones like tan and rust, are classic shades true to the beauty of nature. 

Emulating the art of Parisian style brings the essence of my luxe staples into the summer.
