They say time is of the essence. In the case of shopping sprees, the adage rings especially true. And while online shopping in particular has become a comforting act—think: leisurely scrolling with a cup of coffee in hand—there’s nothing quite like a time crunch to get you adding the things you really want to cart.
Introducing Vogue Singapore’s 36-hour shopping night with online luxury retailer, NET-A-PORTER. Your one-stop-shop for the season’s hottest fashion, beauty and lifestyle offerings, the exclusive digital event is set to give you a glimpse of spring/summer 2022’s best via a one-of-a-kind edit. Featuring brands such as Fendi, Versace, Manolo Blahnik as well as eco-conscious options from the platform’s Net Sustain curation, chances are your wardrobe will be welcoming a few new additions, from evening wear to loungewear. The best part? The experience brings with it a 15% discount on selected items, too—but we have more on that below.
In the meantime, if you’re not sure where to start, fret not. Here, Vogue Singapore curates four looks based off of spring/summer 2022’s most coveted trends to help you hit the ground running. You heard it here first: it’s all about shopping smarter, not harder.
Go bold with cut-outs
When supermodel Kristen McMenamy walked the Fendi x Versace runway in a black midi dress with cut-outs last September, it was clear that the trend was bound to become a hit. Try your hand at the look with Australian designer Christopher Esber’s ribbed-knit co-ord and neutral heels. Our top tip for pulling off this daring number? Finish off with a light moisturiser to give yourself a confidence-boosting glow.
Make a sparkling statement
A new way to make an entrance has cropped up as of late. Championed by stars like Dua Lipa and Rihanna, chainmail, sequins and all-round sparkle are now on the menu. For those who aren’t quite ready to deck themselves out in head-to-toe shimmer, start off with an accessory of choice. A good item to test the waters with is Paco Rabanne’s cult-favourite chainmail bag in a luxurious copper shade.
Cue the colourblock
There’s no denying colourblocking has dominated the sartorial scene as of late. Emulate the trend with a frilly twist by pairing Christopher John Rogers’ playful maxi dress with classic Manolo Blahnik pumps. Your clothes will be doing all the talking, so we suggest keeping a fresh face. Our pick for a natural pout is Charlotte Tilbury’s sumptuous The Super Nudes Matte Revolution lipstick in the shade Supermodel.
Keep it minimal
Spring/summer 2022 saw a reinterpretation of minimalism in the form of tone-on-tone nude hues. Keeping things simple doesn’t have to be boring, though. All you have to do to switch things up is play with texture and understated prints as seen with Fendi’s shearling sandals and mini Sunshine shopper. To tie things together, opt for a crisp white shirt. Our personal favourite is this environmentally-friendly number from Bite Studios.
