Hollyhoque Travels with Melissa Koh
Posted: Aug 08 2014
It’s starting to reach that season where all of us are dying to travel abroad, even just for a little while, isn’t it? More than half a year has passed by and some of us are starting to feel stagnant at work or in school, and so a holiday seems more than deserving!
However, as with all kinds of travel, the biggest headache can come in the form of packing. It’s hard to discern what to wear and how to wear it, especially when we are adamant on looking good in holiday photos; not to fret though, because Hollyhoque has got you covered. Today we’ll be introducing some looks you can take with you to the city as well as the beach!
Alongside this post, we also have the beautiful Melissa Celestine Koh to model in our pieces and show off just how gorgeous they can be!
Starting off with our Modern City outfits, we will feature our Sakura Grace Cropped Top with Alyssa Pleated Neoprene Skirt first! Melissa wears hers in Mint, and looks all demure and feminine! The colors look so lovely against her fair skin and peach-colored lips.
This is one piece that is perfect for date strolls along cities where you aim to go to as many precious cafes as possible, sit by The Seine perhaps, and enjoy the view with your loved one.
If mint isn’t your type of color, then you could go with Black instead. Dress this up with bright reds on your lips and nails, then top it up with a bright clutch to offset the darkness of the clothes! You don’t have to add too many accessories, as the celebrities above show, because the dress is the main focus! At most, slip into some designer shoes to up your ante.
Melissa struts around gracefully in our Fleur Teapart Dress in White, and shows just how the colors pop with that contrast! Do as she does and carry a black bag with a pop of color in her heels, or swap it out by wearing black heels and carrying a bright colored bag! This is a great piece even if you’re travelling overseas for work because its knee-length and scoop-neck details are modest and can be worn with a blazer over.
If you do opt for the Tiffany Blue, then you can play down the strong colors with some light nude trinkets such as a brown watch, a light pink handbag, or just a gold bracelet. If you still need that extra touch, then you can throw on some pink heels as an accent. Do remember though, with that many patterns, you don’t need to overdo your accessories: one or two is more than sufficient.
The last one for our Modern City Theme would be our Endless Summer Maxi Dress, a lovely piece to take when you’re out from day to night because it’s cooling enough for afternoons and formal enough for night dinners! This piece is versatile enough for you to choose what you want to put on, be it a statement necklace, a large belt, or just a pair of dangly earrings.
Melissa above wears Wine Red for that romantic touch, but you can also choose from our other options such as Cobalt Blue or Black.
The black wins the no-brainer dress hands down because anything you wear will look good instantly! Take it from Jamie Chung and just wear nothing but red lipstick and carry a neon bag for that touch of class, go boho-chic like Rachel Zoe and wear a thick belt, straw hat and a beaded necklace, or just be completely casual with a tie-dye bag, sandals and a cropped denim jacket.
Now that we’ve finished the first collection, let’s move on to the Beach Resort theme!
This gorgeous number is our Frilli Vanilli Halter Playsuit in Rose! A happy vivacious pink that is sure to brighten up whichever beach you go to! A different take on beach wear, definitely, but new isn’t always bad isn’t it? You can even opt to just wear the skirt if you just want to walk around in a bikini top, the choice is always yours.
If you’re not planning to wear this to the seaside or pool, that’s fine! This can also be worn out when you’re out and about town and want to keep as cool as possible. Kick on some espadrilles, perch a pair of mirror aviators atop your head and you’re all done! Getting ready has never been this easy.
This combination has Los Angeles written all over it: imagine some sunglasses, roller skates and a soft serve in hand. Nothing better than that whilst in a top as pretty as our Rose and Cons Cropped Top and Arcade Afternoon High Waist Shorts: talk about comfort and style rolled into one! Melissa is definitely rocking the Light Blue and White combo, but you can always do something else.
Try on purple for a more vibrant and fun outlook, or if you simply have tanner skin. This is sure to fit your golden tan and is so easy to match! We are really digging the look that Olivia Munn has, with wedges and a crossbody bag – so we recommend this cute-to-death pouch from Alice + Olivia and a more comfortable footwear option in the form of Charlott Stone’s Alice Sandal in Marbled Leather! Nobody said you couldn’t look fantastic whilst out in the sand.
Now, we’ve got a sizzling hot number called Dreaming Pretty Lace Kimono for you, and doesn’t Melissa look absolutely stunning in it!? It is slightly sheer, just enough to lend some spice to your already hot bikini bod! Ditch those boring bathrobes and throw this on instead!
If instead, you would like to wear it out with your friends then you could throw it on as a shrug as these celebrities have done above! Lily Collins opts for jeans and high wedges whilst Shenae Grimes and Kourtney Kardashian channel Coachella vibes in their loose tees and ripped denim shorts. Up the vampy vibe with this piece in Navy by applying some dark berry lipstick and dusty brown eyeshadow.
We hope you loves have enjoyed this post, and would like to wish all of you a very happy National Day! Don't miss out on our new collection as well because it features the very gorgeous Dreaming Pretty Lace Kimono as shown above! Enjoy your well-deserved weekend!
