Nothing says summer like bright shades, and this pair of Roger Vivier’s yellow slippers is a nod to cheerful weekend looks — or better yet, a stylish accessory for daily attires. I love these shoes for their endless versatility; the collapsible heels can be worn down like a slide or up like a loafer, making them perfect for the office or cocktail party. Featuring an elegant pointed toe and sparkly buckle embellishments, not only are they comfortable but also as polished as my favourite pumps. –Chanya Ormtavesub, Staff Writer

Coconut, rose-gold hue and highlighter — Marc Jacobs‘ Dew Drops Coconut Gel Highlighter in Fantasy (THB 1,800) is simply a tropical dream in one bottle. As someone who can never resist rose gold accessories, anything with a coconut scent and obsessed with luminizers, I can’t stop thinking how much I want this highlighter from the Coconut Collection. For the ultimate sheen, blend it with your favourite foundation and primer to give a dewy finish, or use it alone to add a luminous glow to the complexion. With a universally flattering warm radiance, it works magically on the cheek as a blush, too. Formulated with five forms of coconut and provitamin B5, this illuminating elixir also helps to hydrate and nourish the skin. You’ll find me at Sephora shopping for this one — before it slips away like an island breeze. –Pearl Yan, Managing Editor
As someone who’s into the feminine watch, I couldn’t help but fall in love with this pretty Calvin Klein Full Moon timepiece. Inspired from the moon, its oversized dial will give a luminous shine on anybody’s wrist. I really like how the design is minimalist and feminine at the same time, thanks to the pastel strap that matches seamlessly with its gleaming dial, which exudes understated elegance effortlessly. Calvin Klein Full Moon is simply the perfect go-to accessory for my everyday look. —CO
I’m in love with the colour combination of this abstract argyle halter top from Ferragamo’s pre-spring 2019 ready-to-wear collection. The intriguing pattern is structured like patchwork, yet gives off a very powerful put-together look. Made of eel skin, there’s a beautiful contrast between the relaxed vibe of a halter top, and the strength of the leather used. It’s a fierce yet feminine choice, which I can definitely imagine looking extremely fabulous as an elegant evening drink attire. After all, they didn’t choose merlot as the central colour for no reason. —Lisa Gries, Staff Writer
There’s something really dreamy about using a hair mist — from the pampering process of spritzing it into your freshly washed hair, to the subtle hint of scent bestowed on anyone you stroll past. A velvety veil of zesty and spicy fragrance, Diptyque has launched a new Eau de Sens Hair Mist for the summer, packaged in a colourful box designed by Milan-based art and design team Carnovsky. A handy item to keep in your beauty cabinet, the scent was created to ‘confuse’ the senses, and I feel it really does add a mystical kick of nourishment and shine to your mane. —LG
There are many reason why stripes will never be out of style in the fashion world: they are classy, easy to match, and can lift up your outfit with bold details. Personally, I find black and white stripes the perfect print on heels, especially when paired with bright red and yellow jumpsuits or pencil skirts. Valentino’s Striped Rockstud Courts from the Fall 2018 collection are one of those wear-forever staples that can add instant chic to any monochrome look. You will sure find yourself walking with extra confidence and getting all the attention in these bad boys. –PY
