Fashion trends are ever changing and usually follow the seasons of the year. However, to keep up with them can be a challenge for those of us who reside in the tropics, when the trends for the season may not exactly be weather appropriate for our local climate.

So it takes a bit of ingenuity to adapt what’s seen on the runway into everyday wear. Mummyfique has invited Lisa Aiken, Retail Fashion Director of Net-A- Porter to share tips and outfits for mums to look stylish and on point for the winter season even if they live in the tropics.

Look 1: Classic yet Modern

For the mum on-the-go who is looking for an outfit with modern appeal, pair a classy shirt dress with a pair of kitten heel pumps. Contrast the flowy silhouette of the look with a structured tote.

Look 2:  Retro Chic

Layer a wardrobe basics with chic pieces such as this Attico satin jacket that has been reimagined from a classic film — the look will give off ‘modern screen goddess’ vibes. Choose pieces with embellishments to further channel a vintage vibe.

Look 3: Street Style

Pair wide leg trousers with a feminine top that sits nonchalantly off-the-shoulder for a casual street look. Complete the look by slipping on lowtop sneakers.
