Toga Perfection


Now, we all want to look like Blake Lively. (And date Penn Badgley too?) Unfortunately, life's not all that peachy, and instead we'll have to settle for second best - channeling her immaculate style with this absolutely perfect toga dress.

After the super pretty Olympia and the response we got for toga dresses, we decided to bring in this lovely one for you. This is our favourite piece of the new batch that we have in because of the slinky material, the sexy slimming cut, the cute strap across the back as well as the unique bias creases at the bust area. The best part is that slightly tighter hem provides a more form-fitting cut (Plus, makes it all the easier to dance with in clubs ;)).

Price: RM 50
Colour: Dark Violet SOLD, Black SOLD, Grey SOLD
Status: Sold Out
Size: Free Size (fits UK6 - UK10)

Ruffles galore are still very much in style right now, so what better way to wear it than in this uber cute babydoll strapped-top? Flaired down to the hem, these are the kind of tops perfect for lunch or dinner dates (or ooh, buffets!) to hide any unsightly bulges from indulgence. Also check out the pretty bar eyelets scattered over this top AND the crossback - mega adorable, much?

Price: RM 39 RM30
Colours: Black SOLD, Angelic White SOLD, Cobalt Blue SOLD
Status: Available in Black
Size: Free Size (fits UK6 - small UK10)

Stylishly Savvy

xoxo.







Here at xoxo.chic, we are huuuuuge fans of the "boyfriend shirt". Why? It's comfortable, casual and at the same time so awesomely chic. Plus, they go well with anything. We've seen a number of such shirts when we went on our stock hunt but nothing fit our criteria just yet until we saw this one. What sets this apart is that there's actually a nice cutting to this piece rather than the usual staight down cuts. Coming with two pockets at the front, the larger-than-usual collar and its longer length gives the whole shirt a very trench coat-like feel. Tons of attitude, we say!

Price: RM 49 (includes sash of the same colour)
Colour: Army Green SOLD, White SOLD, Black SOLD
Status: SOLD OUT
Size: Free Size (fits UK6 - a smaller UK12)

Bole-what?

Want something different? Look no further than the world of boleros.

Yep, those cute little cropped, shrug-like jackets. Form-flattering, and a great way of accessorising an outfit without covering it all up or freezing to death, boleros provide just that extra edge when you don't want to go bare but don't want to be swamped in a huge jacket either.

Still not convinced yet? Look at these awesome ways boleros are worn and I'm sure you'll agree with us. Stylish, chic and edgy; do give 'em a try.

Inspired by these awesome outfits, xoxo.chic went out to hunt for some boleros and we must say, we're happy with what we found. Scroll down for Buttoned Bolero for something more form-fitting or Solitaire (with just that one solitary clasp!) for something more trendy-preppy, Gossip Girl-like.

Buttoned Bolero

xoxo.










A trait we adore about this piece is the row of buttons sitting prettily right down the middle of this cropped satin jacket, also known to others as a bolero (we love how it rolls off our tongue nicely when we say it, don't you?). But wait, that's not all. We cannot go without mentioning the lovely mandarin collar and while we've seen tulip hems aplenty on high-waisted skirts, we rarely come across it on jackets like this one here. Made out of thick material, this piece works well for both work and play, night and day.

Solitaire

xoxo.









Simple to wear with just a hook-and-eye closure clasp at the front, this bolero adds just that extra something to an otherwise simple outfit. The two buttons upfront, the Peter Pan sleeves and the puff sleeves just add to the unique traits of this cropped satin jacket. The poncho-like cut of this cropped jacket just screams prep-school; we can totally imagine Queen B, Blair Waldorf donning this one here.

Corporate Crush


Spotted at Forever 21.

The moment we saw this Forever 21 lookalike at our suppliers, we immediately thought of Amanda in Ugly Betty; the receptionist with the immaculate corporate style - we like! A smart looking white shirt with slight ruching at the sleeves to slightly soften the corporate powerhouse look (Hence, corporate crush, ahem.) with the illusion of a trendy waistcoat thrown over it complete with a non-detachable waist clincher. Why illusion? Because this is actually a two-in-one piece. Ingenious, much? Instead of having to hunt for two perfect pieces to layer, you get two for the price of one now. You can never go wrong with black, but if you want something different, then opt dusty blue.

Psst - and don't the guys like it when girls go all corporate formal on them? Hee.
