Living in a tropical oasis has its pro points, don’t get us wrong, but sustaining your style in the 100% humidity of a Singapore summer can leave you with more than just sweaty palms.
As temperatures start to soar, the sartorially savvy inner city babe is forced to get creative with her work chic wardrobe. Unable to hack the tell-tale perspiration that plagues urbanites on their everyday commute, an unexpected underdog is proliferating through the city at an alarming rate, blinged out pool sliders.
No, we’re not referring to swim team rubber styles that our dad insists on wearing with socks and combat shorts.
The new flat du jour is Miu Miu’s pearl encrusted pool to party sliders that have made us totally re-evaluate our footwear essentials this season. In a city where proximity to a large body of water is almost a necessity, the Singapore set pretty much invented poolside dressing.
From bottomless brunches at the water’s edge to rooftop mixers which end with a dip, keeping things chic depends on an outfit planned with military precision.
The ideal alternative to the ugly duckling kitten heel, slide on sandals started off as a changing room basic – and quite frankly, the only way to avoid foot cooties at the public lido.
But thanks to luxury designers like Gucci and Pucci, the 80s eastern European stigma has retreated to make way for a surprisingly convenient, comfortable and high-luxe lovely that we’re willing to wear, anywhere! Bringing a spa-like relaxation to any look, these new arrivals from Miu Miu are the ideal way to amp up any ensemble. From floating maxis to boardroom basics, the pearl pool slider offers a polished and altogether professional approach to summer sandals.
Worn with a monochrome mash-up of comfortable separates, the VAUGHAN girls have cracked this season’s social butterfly look. A three-piece ensemble that’s equal parts relaxed and refined, we’re ready to travel from the beach to the street in this hardworking outfit. Playing with the elegant allure of pearls juxtaposed against the hard industrialism of studs, this double entendre of soft rock accessories and precious treasures is the way to work this trend for any occasion.
Styling these Miu Miu sandals with this contrasting Roxy bucket bag from Alexander Wang, this new-wave boudoir look is equal parts naughty and nice.
Offset with these double stud ear jacket earrings, our VAUGHAN outfit can be dressed up with a lick of red lippy or a smoky eye for added evening overtones.
Integrating our favourite wrinkle-free silk shirt into the mix, we love the way the VAUGHAN Hepburn shirt has a sheer edge that can be worn over a scoop back bather.
Cinched and tied at the waist with all the buttons undone or smartly tucked into the hem of these high waisted shorts, this fashion classic offers endless versatility whether you’re chilling at the beach bar or on your way to the boardroom.
The perfect collection of interchangeable separates with a forgiving functionality, these practical pearl sliders from Miu Miu add a fancy edge to a work to weekend ensemble, style your sell-out sandals with our range of luxury silk shirts for a cool, calm and collected approach to summer styling.
