One of my favorite things about styling and roaming the web for celebrity style photos is coming across those styles that are a hybrid of two distinct styles. On two separate occasions, Hong Kong rising stars Samantha Ko (高海寧) and Angel Chiang (蔣家旻) were spotted in pairing one of this season’s hottest trends, the pleated midi skirt with another timeless favorite piece, the white sneaker. One is whimsically feminine while the other is comfortably practical. Sometimes it just so happens that two completely different styles can find it’s way together just like how opposites attract.
Previously, I mentioned how Angel’s outfit looks great in theory, but she really had to ditch the cream leggings, which was tasteless. I was also a bit skeptical about wearing a sweater over the dress for a public appearance although it would have been fine if it were for a everyday street style look. On the other hand, Samantha pleasantly surprised us in something other than the seductive bandage or bodycon dress that brings out every curve in her body. Instead of a sweater, she opted for a white lace-trimmed blouse. The cropped style and the lace was so subtly delicate and matching with the pastel pink skirt.
Samantha is clearly the winner for this fashion showdown.
