While online shopping is the future, sometimes walking down the aisle filled with pretty clothes and makeup can be fascinating, and for some, therapeutic even! With Stylenanda, they take physical stores to a whole new level. Besides having booths at department stores (Lotte Department Stores, of course) and duty-free shops, they have their own flagships stores too! There’s one in Hongdae, which is a region near Hongik University, where their urban culture, arts and entertainment are widely popular. Besides the huge flagship store in Hongdae, there 2 other impressive stores that’ll make you want to jump on a plane to visit them in your next vacation. The Garosu Gil 3CE Cinema is a themed 3CE store, and it gives you the experience of being an actress on set. With bright lights and props everywhere, it’s definitely a creative way of showcasing 3CE products. The other store, called Pink Hotel & Pink Pool Café, is a homage to the movie ‘The Grand Budapest Hotel’. With pink exteriors and interior walls, matching furniture and designs, you’ll feel like you actually turned back time to the 1950s.
Many brands have their own personal or distinct trait that you will not miss in each piece of their collections. Stylenanda is most definitely one of them. Known for its unique and quirky style, Stylenanda is not for the faint of heart. From bright colours, to edgy cuttings, to the extra details in each of its clothing, ‘boring’ is not a word Stylenanda is familiar with. Once you put on a piece of clothing that has the Stylenanda clothing on, you’re no longer just another face in the street. You’re the life of the party, the centre of attention, and the star on the stage. Sounds exhilarating, but that’s what the brand wants you to feel and look as you wear the clothes. Stylenanda does not follow, it leads. It creates culture, not just mere pieces of fabrics sewn together. The brand dares to be different, and is widely successful because of this.
Because of its promise of fun and all things crazy, Stylenanda may not be the best for work. Sure, you can sneak in a few pieces or two, but it’s definitely made for showing off. So, whether you decide to wear for work or play, be sure to wear it loud and proud!
Work may not be fun for everyone, but you can always dress it up to compensate! A snazzy top like Stylenanda’s High Neck Top with Frill and Half Zip will look formal for the job, but fun enough with the ruffles and details. A simple culottes and platform heels will look great to match. But if you want the full Stylenanda experience, the Pencil Skirt with Sporty Stripe in Check will add a nice texture to it. What’s with the sporty stripe, you may ask? Well, Stylenanda isn’t Stylenanda if it’s just a plain pencil skirt! If you prefer for something on the ‘safe’ side, the deconstructed pencil skirt is another alternative to consider. If dresses are more of your forte, the Drop Waist Mock Dress is both work-appropriate, and stylish enough to be on the cover of Vogue magazine. Pair with boots or heels. Lastly, of course, a look is never complete without some 3CE makeup!
Life of the Party
Because Stylenanda is all about the fun and adventurous, you’ll have more than one style guide inspiration!
We wanted to say a chill party, but nowadays, chill means something else. And when we say chill, we really just mean good vibes with a soda in hand. If you’re at a small gathering, and just meeting a few friends and family, you’ll want to be in something comfortable, but cute as well. The Checkered Crop Top will look good paired with a white tee, along with some denim shorts. The Oversized Kimono with Frills in Floral Print will add an additional chic layer to your outfit (both literally and figuratively). But if you prefer just a plain old dress, the Floral Tie Up Cami Overlay Dress will gain some compliments from your peers, and all you really need are just a pair of flats and some confidence.
If you’re heading to the hottest party in town, you’re going to need something much more. Stylenanda is perfect for the job, because like we’ve said before, the brand is everything but boring. If you opt for something more revealing, the Strappy Cami Top with Chain Detail Choker & Harness is going to turn heads everywhere. A skinny leather leggings or ripped jeans would have been an A+ look. But if you prefer to keep it more toned down, worry not! Stylenanda has a little for everyone’s taste. The Varsity T-Shirt Dress with Backprint and Mesh Overlayer is a quirky choice, but in a good way. A good pair of sneakers and some hoop earrings are all you need before you head out the door!
While technically it’s not a party, it’s still a night out with your colleagues, peers or partner! However, a little note here: if you’re looking for the usual gala dresses or prom-esque styles, you’ve come to the wrong place. Stylenanda is unconventional, the sneakers on the red carpet, the black (but good) sheep in the family. If you’re up for that, read ahead! The Midi Layer Pencil Dress is probably the closest thing to your usual dresses that you find everywhere, but what’s cool about this is that you can – like the name suggests – layer it with different tops! Whether you want to wear a sequined top or an off-the shoulder Bardot, the choice is really yours. The Gingham Ruffle Front Dress is a great option as well. Drop-down earrings, a clutch and lace-up heels would be enough to elevate your outfit to the next level.
Casual All Day
We can’t possibly miss this one out! Whether it’s a quick run to the mall, or just brunch sessions with your family, going casual is just one of the many versions that you can customize yourself! If you’re the ‘T-Shirts and shorts’ kinda girl, then Stylenanda’s cute tees with prints would steal your hearts. From taglines like ‘Neh Neh Neh Neh Boo Boo’ (yes, we’re not kidding!) and just a normal ‘BABE’, these cute tees will satisfy your casual-heart. Denim shorts or skirts will complete the look! However, if you’re the type that loves going casual, but with a dose of chic, then then Deep V Neck Crop Top In Floral is a decent choice. You can pair with the Wide Leg Jeans with Row Hems from Stylenanda, but any other pants you have will suffice. If you’re neither, and define casual as comfort, then the High Rise Skirt with Distressing Co-Ord is close to heaven. It’s cotton, cute, and definitely casual!
Whatever you’re the life of the party or just a girl with a wild heart, just know that Stylenanda will most definitely channel those that dares to be different!
