This past week on Instagram, stylish young stars Carrie Wong and Kimberly Wang posted pics of themselves wearing the same all-white outfit from Pomelo, the Mitsu Eyelet shirt and shorts.
Which of course led us to wonder — who wore it better? Both actresses opted for a minimalist look, with little to no accessories. Carrie paired hers with white sneakers, messy-chic hair and a black doggie she met at The Animal Resort, while Kimberly accessorised with a big smile, shades and a sleek bob. We'd say Carrie won this particular face-off, only if 'cos her four-legged companion lent her pic depth and pathos beyond the usual OOTD (also, what great colour contrast!). But the model on the Pomelo website may have these two rising stars beat, with her glam schoolgirl look, shirt tucked neatly into her shorts, white school shoes and socks, and chunky earrings.
Of course, when it comes to great style, everyone's a winner. Here are tips from Pomelo's brand president Meg Mistry on how to style the look: "The Mitsu Eyelet Shirt ($44) and Shorts ($35) are a wardrobe staple for the summer. Not only are they versatile in that you can wear them as a set or pair with an alternative top/bottom, but it is one of those day-to-night looks that can be dressed up or down depending on the occasion. For day, I would pair the outfit with clean white sneakers and a cross-body bag in a neutral or pastel hue, and finish the look with a pair of strong statement sunglasses — acetate frames with interesting details, colours and patterns will lift the look and give it some fashion edge. To turn this outfit into a head-turning nighttime look, add heels. A pair of sleek white or nude heeled pumps will add sophistication as well as height. A simple clutch bag and perfectly manicured hands and feet, along with a sun kissed glow (top up your tan a few days before you plan to rock this look) is all you need to create the perfect look for your next summer soiree."
