桂綸鎂: tailored casual

Beautiful Taiwanese actress, Gui Lun-mei (桂綸鎂), recently attended the Beijing premier of her new film, Love in Space <全球熱戀>, giving the world a lesson on how to properly "do" tailored casual chic. Gui paired an oversized velvet One Teaspoon blazer with a pair of denim cut-offs from our go-to brand, Ksubi. Usually, denim cut-offs would be an absolute no-no for glitzy premier events, but Gui pulls this look off elegantly by keeping it classy with a simple white T-shirt and plain black boots from Alexander Wang. The deep jewel-toned colour of the One Teaspoon blazer also helps to make the ensemble look more expensive and sophisticated. This just goes to show that there are no "rules" in fashion; they truly are made to be broken, so next time you have a fancy event to attend, don't rule out your trusty denim cut-offs so quickly!

Ksubi is available in Hong Kong at I.T, Lane Crawford & Van D.

One Teaspoon is available in Hong Kong at D-Mop, Little Black Dress & Van D.
