Fashion inspiration Tuesday: Liu Wen

Liu Wen has been my inspiration for quite some time. She is a Chinese fashion model and was born on January 27, 1988. I don’t quite know what to make of her, but I fell in love with her face; her strong features, her high cheekbones, her lovely almond shaped eyes and her rosebud lips. She is also the first model of Chinese descent to walk for Victoria Secret.

When being styled by fashion couture houses and walking for them, Liu Wen is so versatile. She does romantic so effortlessly but at the same time, she can also rock the androgynous look, before switching to minimalism with nary a twitch of effort. It is no wonder the fashion houses adore her.

Her street style is even more fashionable and she is always treading on the borders of cool. Liu Wen always has a few staples that she sticks to in terms of street style. She always has a jacket or a blazer on, and she is always tucked into skinny jeans, or menswear inspired pants, and biker boots. Her bags are equally cool, and comes in a variety of messenger bags and strappy black bags.

It’s actually really easy to copy Liu Wen’s street style. Here are some pieces that I found online that can help you

Blazers are a definite must have in Liu Wen’s books so these blazers from October Origin fit the bill perfectly. From left, Relax Cotton Blazer RM86, Contrast Lapel Blazer RM88, Punched Sleeve Blazer RM88

Ray Ray Boutique has a double button row blazer that I really really like for RM56 only, and Attire Attic has a simple white blazer for RM52

You can easily pair the blazer with a simple tee, or a men’s shirt tucked into your jeans or workpants.

I love these simple black yet edgy tops from Arrogant Minnie. From left, leather vs chiffon shirt RM99, Criss Cross chiffon top RM109

As for shoes, it seems rather silly to wear boots in our very hot country, but you can easily adapt her style by wearing a pair of menswear inspired oxfords, or for something a little more youthful, a pair of high tops from Converse.
