Peony Lim, style icon
Today’s fashion inspiration comes from a very unique beauty. Peony Lim. If you’ve ever watched old art house films, wandered along the cobbled streets of beautiful Paris, it might be fitting to run into Peony, with her knowing gaze, her secret smile and her beautiful curly hair with nary a strand out of place.
Peony’s style is that of a timeless elegance. She could be in a long flowy dress, or a simple jeans and t-shirt, but something will always stand out, be it a statement piece of accessory, or a statement red lip.
Here is Peony’s take on the smart casual, dressed elegantly in a oversized white shirt, her blazer casually draped over her shoulder, boyfriend jeans, and the whole look is held together smartly by sharp black stilettos, her adorable hat and ruby lips.
One of our favourite things about Peony is that she is really unafraid and loves to rock the red lipstick.
Her website is certainly as intriguing as her style, and is filled with inspiration on how to best live your life as fully as she seems to be doing without revealing too much. She has recipes on things that she likes to bake and cook, interior decorating tips, and gives you a slice of what she is wearing and how to wear it.
When breaking down Peony’s many different looks to find a common thread, we found out that whether Peony is going for an edgy, romantic or avant garde, something always stands out. She always has a statement piece, and she always carries it with a certain poise and quiet confidence.
