A Two-Piece is always a Winner

Ike’s two-piece outfits continue to prove that you can never get it wrong with a printed set. The bright colours and easy but statement-making fit will make anyone standout. Simple All stars or Vans sneakers are the perfect accessories.

Layer Hues for Full Effect

When styling simple fits, opt for outfits with same or similar colours, for example, a deep grey shirt with light grey pants and black shoes.

Matching Footwear Also Makes A Difference

Wearing shoes that match your pants is another styling hack we’ve learned from this BellaStylista. You can make things more interesting by adding bright shoelaces like Ike does

Shirts on Shorts!

Yup, pairing shirts, and shorts is still in trend, especially as we’re still in the summer season – and most of our style stars also favour this look, see proof here. Note that this look draws attention to your legs and so you want to be sporting really nice footwear.

Yes To A Pop of Colour

Sometimes, a pop of colour is all it takes to make a fashion statement. Ike proves that pop could be both on top or below; with a shirt, shoes or pants. The trick is making sure you maintain balance by keeping the hues similar.
