Dress code: Street Chic

The invitation for the Elle Awards stated the dress code to be Street Chic. My first thought was distressed jeans, oversized tee with boots. But this is Elle Awards, so I have in throw in something that merge street style with formality and high fashion. Here’s how the look was put together.

Dress code: Street Chic


I finally decided on this dress by Christopher Kane for Topshop. Lace is typically feminine but this season it's all about being edgy while still looking sexy. I like the fact that it's slightly see-through, and street style is all about taking risks and making bold choices, so I decided to be a little cheeky with my outfit.


Since the dress is slightly see-through, I chose a bling-bling underpants like this one from Topshop to add a little sparkle. It's best to keep it in the same shade, cos' otherwise, it will simply draw attention to your bum!


Why wear plain stockings when lace adds a different texture to the outfit? You can find them at Topshop or ASOS.


Suede adds another layer to the lace and leather typical of street chic. So even though black is the main colour of my look, the different material will not make me blend in from head to toe. From Topshop.


Accessories have to be chunky. In this case, I chose to wear earrings instead of bangles because I am already wearing a huge watch. Earrings by David Gan from Passion Hair Salon.


Thigh-high boots are currently my favourite piece of fashion item because they allow the hemlines to get shorter! These are from Gucci.
