Spring Tales with @gilliansng 🌷

Co-Dayred with Hollyhoque (avatar)

Hello, we’re baaaack πŸ‘‹πŸ» Plus with a special co-Dayre guest today! We’re sure you’re not unfamiliar with Dayre darling, @gilliansng, and in this entry, she’ll be styling a couple of #Hollyhoque apparels with a CNY-appropriate look and how to wear then beyond the festivities too.

The collection is already up on the webstore and these items are readily available at Orchard Gateway B2-02!

Camp for updates as we hand the spotlight over to Gillian in the morning!

G'morning friendssss 🌞

Happy to be starting the week with @hollyhoque on this co-dayre! If you haven't started shopping for CNY or don't know what to get, then I hope this post will help you along ✌🏻

Let me start with the first item I picked! I actually already own this in navy, as some of you may know, but I couldn't resist keeping the new sunshine shade too 😍

If pink and reds aren't your thing, then consider going with this shade of yellow to spruce things up! πŸ‹

Paired with simple neutral shades like white and brown, it definitely makes the yellow shine even more ✨ I love this happy look so much!

I'm still not over how gorgeous the ruche details are at the sleeves either.

I really don't need much accessorising to make this look work for me! The sleeves do it all πŸ’•

Best part about getting such a versatile top is being able to wear it out even after CNY is over πŸ˜›

All I need is a pair of high waist denim shorts (my fav one being this embroidered floral one from HH too!), a small crossbody bag, white slip-ons and I'm ready to go!

And if you didn't know, this design of the new off-shoulder piece has been improved with the addition of an elastic portion at the back – the fit is much better now β˜ΊοΈπŸ™ŒπŸ»

@gilliansng said it right! We love versatile items that can dressed up for occasions and then dressed down for casual excellence! Here’re more ideas on how you can style the items!

Gianna Ruched Top

Back in the perfect Lunar New Year shades! Opt for auspicious Red because of cos πŸ’πŸ» or reach out for Yellow to complete your bright look.

A little offshoulder and some puffy sleeves will definitely elevate your style! It serves to flatter your collarbones and seeks to hide any unsightly arm flabs that we all dislike.

This improved version has elastic banding at the back so you can be sure it’s tight and secure!

How to Pair

For Chinese New Year, twirl to the festivities in a demure midi skirt like our Imogen Pleated Skirt. Try an occasion-wear skirt like this for a look you can easily mix and match. Master the dress code and complete the look with an embellished clutch and nude stilettos!

Beyond the festivities, tone down the sleeve drama happening with a classic A Line Skirt . Channel a retro 90’s look with a masterful half tuck! It keeps the finished look ultra-flattering.

Baylee Basic Tank

Hey girl, foundation is so important and by that we mean the building blocks of your wardrobe! These basic tanks are timeless pieces that can be paired with almost anything in your closet.

Anchor a wild print down with one of these tops or go on a colourblocking spree!

Complete with a classic cut, quality fabric and versatile shades, your perfect closet starts with them. You’ll be as colourful as the rainbow, as bright as the stars.

How to Pair

For Chinese New Year, who says you gotta don on those pretty one pieces? Do the mix and match dance and slay in our Donna Sleek Pants that provide a perfect mix of style and comfort.

Beyond the festivities, dress down in our Bynes Cheerleading Skorts. With flattering pleats and a short cute length to sashay in, it’s the perfect weekend attire. You’ve gotta add this into your cart rn as we speak. Pleaty please!

Abir Flap Midi Skirt

Swish your way through the celebrations! Trust in an elegant flowy skirt to get you in a festive mood for Lunar New Year.

If your usual style is more feminine and girly, an asymmetrical swirl-worthy midi skirt is an essential. Wear this to your relatives’ house during the day and then rock it to a party when the sun sets! Versatile for any occasions and perfect to dress up or down.

How to Pair

For Chinese New Year, one way to pair our Abir Midi Skirt is with the Nessie Crochet Top! With an elaborate design, it’s our go-to piece for upcoming reunion dinners and house visiting. The criss-cross crochet and waterfall thread is bound to be conversation-starters with your cousins and relatives!

After the festivities, dress down the skirt with a simple essential like our Hugh Basic Tee. Lightweight and breathable, it’s also super soft and comfortable to lounge in and chill out.

Whenever I see gingham prints, I feel like going on a picnic πŸ˜‚ it's just the way it is!

Gingham has always been my go-to print whenever I'm in doubt of what to wear and this dress doesn't fail me either.

This is the navy piece which features a unique drop waist design, because it doesn't go all the way around - just around the front!

The drop waist design starts from a higher height than most, so some may find this a little restrictive, especially if you have wider hips like me.

But other than that, it's a flattering casual piece welcome the weekends in 🌿 Comes with a concealed back zip for easy wearing and is fully lined!

If you were hoping for this to come in red for CNY, you're in luck because it does! Grab yours before others do πŸ˜›

We’re all ready to welcome the one-piece wonders of this collection and first up is the Waki Checkered Dress as seen on @gilliansng. We think it’s made for reunion dinners on the eve of Chinese New Year and then weekend cafe-hoppings after!

Mackinley Lace Dress

Make a luxurious entrance in a lace mini dress! Featuring a fitted mini silhouette, lace overlay and a scoop neckline, you’re gonna break some hearts in this bodycon. Work it with high heels and a simple clutch for the occasions.

Queenby Mermaid Dress

Turn heads and take your look a notch up in this flattering all-over lace mermaid number. With a touch of feminine flare at the hems, it’s the perfect dress for the occasion! Add strappy statement heels for a festive-ready ensemble and take this special piece out for a spin.

P.S. Don’t forget those oranges!

New collection launched on!

And that's all from me this time! ✌🏻

I'm definitely keeping a few Hollyhoque pieces just for CNY, and I'm excited to see which you girls pick too.

Catch y'all on co-dayre again next time! Thanks for having me @hollyhoque 😘

That’s all for today’s co-Dayre and we sincerely hope you enjoyed it! Be sure to catch our latest drop online and stay tuned for the rest of our CNY series. Our store at Orchard Gateway B2-02 is also freshly stocked with many many exclusive New Arrivals before we release them online. Remember we’re launching twice weekly for the weeks leading up to CNY!

shoan @hollyhoque hi, may I feedback ? I was browsing thru the website for some new arrivals dresses and however, the interface of the website is rather unfriendly cos I cannot seem to filter category or new arrival without seeing all the items.
Like when I wana filter search dresses, it's limited to a few and when I click new arrivals, it's a whole chunk of items?
Are some of the items only exclusively in the store rather than website?
