Reminiscent of the 80s


When it comes to the 80s, you'll remember the after-school arcade games, The Breakfast Club and phone cords that get tangled every time! You would also have remembered the preppy style that comes along with. From the pastel shades of pink and yellow to the polo tee-shirts, the preppy look has evolved today. Like a time capsule, this fashion rekindles the love we have for those times.

La Pausa, named after Mademoiselle Chanel's villa in the French Riviera, the Cruise 19 show took the world by surprise with the construction of a gigantic cruise liner inside the Grand Palais as the runway venue. The collection seamlessly blends in nautical glamour with 80’s statement colours. I styled my favourite Chanel picks for everyday wear. Some of my favourites include the silk blouse with the La Pausa cruiseliner print, iconic Gabrielle bag in new colours and the Mary-Janes.

Lastly, I wanted to style a look from the runway for less. How cute is the pink print tee-shirt and silver-tone MJ over white opaque tights? Just head down to your local departmental store and pick some opaque tights. White leggings with statement shoes will be huge next season!
