The casual end of the Spectrum

Smart yet casual wear is the oft-overlooked member of the fashion editorial family. But odds are we all have days where we don’t have any occasion to don couture, when tailoring is too formal, sheers too daring, and rockstar hotpants too weather-inappropriate. And the truth is that the in-between often gets glossed over because there’s nothing interesting, nothing newsworthy, about jeans and a jumper.

But that doesn’t have to be the case. Fashion doesn’t have to be fantasy all the time, but it doesn’t have to be dull, either. In Spectrum by Alan Chan casual outfits, styled by Patrica Lagmay, are given an overhaul by way of colour, texture, and accessorising. Jeans too boring? Make them coloured. Forgo the black handbag and swap it for a colourful clutch. Trade a cotton tee for a lace one. Not every occasion is a red carpet one; and when it’s not, there’s plenty of ways to be casual yet chic.

Some people's wardrobes are about a small selection of pieces that all fit within one aesthetic - Tania Braukamper isn't such a person. With a wardrobe that spans three different rooms, her approach to fashion is a mixture of current-season key pieces mixed with vintage finds she's sourced on innumerous shopping trips around the world's more cultured capitals. Despite a disparate approach to shopping, Tania is adamant that the key to mixing vintage with new season is to stick to key looks and colours that work for oneself. And it's a theory that she works into her writing for Fashionising.com, where she serves as the publication's Editor.
