As a Central Michigan University student abroad, I have the opportunity to explore the style varieties in Hong Kong. It has been a blast to see the many similarities and unique twists to weave into your everyday style. Welcome to the world of Hong Kong fashion.
Look 1: Glam On the Go
Pick a busy, printed block tee & tuck into your favorite plain or weathered jean skirt. Maybe even a leather skirt, if you are feeling edgy. Throw on a pair of sneakers or combat boots to create a girly, but versatile look. This will get you through classes, but also the walks through the Subway station, around the city, and more.
Look 2: Comfort
Popular even more so in Hong Kong than the States, pocket & print tees are a classic to your wardrobe. Liven the look with pull-on trousers. Bonus points if they tie with a bow. Not sure if you’ll need another layer? Grab your favorite lightweight trench to complete the look. Not only do you look like you are about to walk a runway, but the jacket works great to shield sun or rain, given the uncertain conditions of Hong Kong weather.
Look 3: A Twist on the T-Shirt Dress
We all know (and love!) the comfort of a t-shirt dress. Turns out this love is shared with people from Hong Kong too. Step up the detail and you are ready to walk out the door. Pair with a classic ball cap or headband because the heat never stops in Hong Kong. Finally, dazzle in Adidas Stan Smiths, a go-to for campus fashionistas.
Look 4: Layered & Lovely
Upgrade your tank top or sleeveless dress by sliding a plain tee on underneath. Advance this outfit with different colors, textiles, and lengths. Dress up head to toe with a timeless slide loafer/mule. Then, grab your favorite sunnies and the look is complete.
