STYLE DIARY OF AN ALTERNATIVE GIRL


Fashion blogger Aien Jamir transforms Eka staples into going-out looks

Aien Jamir is a pro fashion blogger at Fashion & I (www.aienjamir.com) with a very distinctive personal style inspired by edgy minimalism and vintage references. She has a unique way of mixing up luxe pieces with flea market finds to create a style that doesn't scream ‘quirky’, instead gently whispers ‘elegance’. Her beautifully shot blog is a testament to her style journey.

We couldn't think of a better person to take on our style challenge to transform our go-to relaxed-chic Eka separates into totally-glam going-out looks. We’re happy to report that she totally aced the challenge and brought back pictures to prove. Pay close attention to the way she wields the power of right accessories and makeup because therein lies her blogger magic.

“I did an all black-on-black outfit keeping in mind that I had to hit the club with my girlfriends after work. It’s a known fact that all things black magically transform into work-to-club clothes. With the right switch of accessories and a swipe of red lipstick, this super professional pairing morphed into an elegant going-out look.”

“For a perfect Sunday brunch, I couldn’t think of a better colour and silhouette than this beautiful, neutral, colour-blocked dress. Minimalism plays a huge role in my everyday style and I’m a firm believer of the less-is-more philosophy. I’d usually pair it with sneakers on a relaxed day but it can easily be dressed up with some killer heels that amp up its sweet-but-playful sheer quality.”

“Being a full-time blogger, I have to attend so many events that often enough I find myself with nothing new to wear! I found the perfect solution to this problem when I started experimenting with layering. Denim and stripes are a time-tested and classic combination that also resonates well with my personal style. I wore statement accessories to look sharp, and a bold lipstick to add a pop of bright colour.”
