Note from Editor: Say hello to Asian Pop Weekly's newest blog series "C-Pop Style Diary", where we'll be sharing unique stylespiration from some of our favourite C-pop artists whom I admire very much! The underlying message I'd like this series to convey is that you don't have to go over the top or spend lots of money to look or feel beautiful-just be yourself! For the girls especially ;)
Singer-songwriter-producer Tanya Chua has always been a source of inspiration for me. Be it through her music, her tastes or her sense of style, her individualism and strong, independent yet overtly feminine attitude always shines through. Of course, in her fashion sense, this is no exception. Having posted many photos of her clad in denim on her Facebook, it seems that the Mandopop songstress is an expert in pairing denim to create outfits that look effortlessly classy with simple touches to create beautiful, coordinated looks. Let's explore a few of them below, shall we?
Revamping the 'white tee and jeans' look
Tanya is one singer who has completely mastered the 'white tee and jeans' look with her own feminine touch. Pairing fitted white tees with simple, funky graphics against stylish denim skinnies with either folds in the cuffs or rips, her look is simple, yet beautiful. Understated yet energetic, Tanya's versatile look is great for day outs, and could even tide you over for dinner at a semi-classy restaurant on a Thursday night (maybe).
Shirts and Shorts (are) allowed
Sticking with high waisted denim shorts, Tanya injects class into even her most staple accessories. With her trusty high-top converses by her side that are pictured in most photos, you can see how they would be a go-to alternative if you're ever worried about what shoes to pair with any denim outfit. Throwing on an interesting top such as the pheasant blouse Tanya has on, or the cropped shirt can create a variety of styles which can accommodate a fun, summery look. To me, Tanya's ensemble is unique as it is sporty, functional, feminine and chic all at once. Now this is a woman who's got her stuff together!
Taking the denim game to the next level, Tanya shows how much difference a patterned shirt with a unique design and a pair of pumps can make so much difference. Note how she tucks in her shirts into the waist of her denim bottoms which neatens and streamlines the look. A last feminine touch is given by adding a pair of elegant heels or pumps to complete the look. The last picture here is my favourite, where she adds a pop of red in her pumps and matching bag to give the look a little more spunk.
