Tops For Women: Shop Online for 12 Easy To Match Tops

Out of all women clothing types, finding the right top to wear for the day usually seems to be the most overwhelming for most of us. The problem sometimes is that we have too many tops and not understanding when to where what. The secret is to cut through the seemingly endless clutter and shop for the essential, stylish women tops. So, here are 12 types of easy to match tops that every woman should have in her closet.

Silk Camisole

Since we’re on the topic of camisoles, how about this cross-back camisole? Designed with delicate straps and open cross back, this camisole is not only minimalistic but also downright sexy.  A V-neckline and crossed straps to show off your shoulders and it’s perfect to be paired with wide-leg pants. The strings are also adjustable allowing you to create a deeper V-neck when the occasion calls for it. This needs to go in the list of must-have tops for women!

Cascade Layered Blouse

Be bold in your choices of tops for women and step out of the box with this cascading layered top. It’s a wonder how adding that extra layer to this top immediately brings an element of class and sophistication to the entire look. This loose-fitting top creates the perfect blend of comfort and style. Paired with a wide leg pants and you’ll easily be the best dressed woman in the whole room.

Satin Cowl Neck

One of the best comebacks from the 90s is the cowl neckline. Cowl neckline refers to any women’s top or dress that hangs or folds at the neckline. This satin top with neckline with delicate straps adds a modern touch to your personal style. Wear it with a pair of smart suit trousers and you’re all set for a professional setting. Add a blazer for a sophisticated and classic look.   

Toga Top

Toga tops have earned their place in the list of tops for women with their undeniable presence on the runway, red carpet and the streets. But why not take it up a notch and explore the theme of asymmetry in this toga top with the extended slit on one side – it’s unconventional, bold and proudly flaunts your collarbone and shoulders. You might even tie it at the side to give it a little structure! 

Keyhole Back

You know you can never go wrong with a classic black top – well, it may seem like a basic black top at first, but this sexy keyhole back takes it over the edge. Designed to effortlessly allow you to have your black top but at the same time, maintain an alluring sensuality. 

Tight-Waisted Blouse

Girl if you got it, you have to flaunt it. This waist-tailored top not only accentuates your shape and brings out your silhouette but with that pretty pink ribbon at the back, it keeps your look chic, fun yet elegant. You’ll never go wrong with this outfit on a date!

Wrap Blouse

This style highlights your best features making it perfect for work and after-work drinks. This wrap blouse pairs well with pants, jeans or a pencil skirt to elevate your professional look. You can even wear some delicate jewelry when the occasion calls for it.

Funnel Neck Top

A funnel neck is a great way to maintain professionalism while keeping a cool and casual look. It’s a high neckline that is loosened up adding a touch of status and importance to your look without coming off as too rigid – basically the perfect neckline to showcase strength and power.

Off shoulder, Long Sleeved Top

Isn’t it quite astounding how long sleeves can make a top look so different? With its off shoulder, enhanced silhouette and long sleeves, it creates a sleek, minimalist look especially when tucked into a pencil skirt or even work pants. This top not only shows off your collarbone, but the unique neckline elongates the neck creating a look that is both flirty and fun.  Easily one of the most stylist tops for women!

Back-ribbon Top

From the front, it may look like a cute white blouse but the twist (literally) comes from the back with a back ribbon! Keep it chic and casual with this loose-fitting, comfortable blouse and the addition of the back ribbon lets you flaunt your fun and upbeat personality.

Asymmetrical Top

Unlike most popular tops that create horizontal lines in your look, asymmetrical clothes create vertical lines. Vertical lines are much more flattering. Easily pair it with pants, skinnies or pencil skirts to transform a simple outfit into an extraordinary one. It’s a top that makes a strong style statement!

This elaborately curated list of tops from our women clothing is sure to have something for everyone. Our self-esteem, daily mindsets, and the way we interact with others are largely dictated by how we represent ourselves. Consciously decide what to wear and then, wear it with pride.

# ilovefioyo: An exclusive with Nerissa Low, Founder of Liht Organics – An organic approach to beauty

# ilovefioyo

“Makeup is meant to be used as an avenue for individuals to express themselves and showcase their creativity, not to hide who they really are.” – Nerissa Low

Beauty entrepreneur, Nerissa Low, founder of Liht Organics Pte Ltd which had won the Green Brand Award shares her inspiring stories to empower women to see the Liht with her.

Love, Fioyo Photo Moments

Q: Tell us a little bit about yourself

Outgoing city girl on the outside, introverted nature lover who LIVES for animals on the inside! Most people I’ve met tell me that they are surprised to find that I have a very different personality from how I look. To me, how we appear on the outside is an expression of our inner creativity and mood, which is dynamic and ever-evolving. I believe everyone is multifaceted and I love getting to know people beyond the external façade.

Nerissa Low

Q: How did the idea of Liht come about?

I used to battle with adult acne and sensitive skin in my 20s which caused a huge dent in my self esteem. Apart from the aesthetic problems of trying to hide my acne by piling on makeup (which made it worse), I was put on daily doses of Oratane pills and had to go for monthly steroid injections individually into my pimples, both of which caused side effects like depression and potential organ failure. After 2-3 years of being on the medication, I realised that merely staving it was not a solution. Through my research, I ended up finding the root causes of skin conditions such as mine, and this kick-started my belief in going organic. In doing so, I eliminated all the harmful chemicals found in my daily skincare products such as mercury that causes skin sensitivity, talc that causes pore enlargements, and a cocktail of chemicals that cause hormone disruptions – and my skin cleared up significantly!

Soon, it became tug of war between using organic skincare, but piling on a layer of chemical makeup. While my skin condition had improved, it still wasn’t quite the outcome I was hoping to get as the makeup I was using would always aggravate my skin. During that time, while organic skincare was readily available, organic makeup was not and that was when I decided to start my own line
with the exact criteria of safety and efficiency that I wanted in my makeup that was unavailable in the market.

Coming up with the name was exciting because I wanted our brand to not just be about quality products, I wanted it to embody positivity and empowerment for our customers. Hence the name Liht (which is the old English spelling for “light”) which stands for “Living in Her Time” to remind women to live her life by her own rules, shining at her brightest potential and being present and
grateful for every moment in her life!

Wearing Dearly High Neck Sleeves Top & Leona Printed A-line Skirt

Q: How do you think the beauty industry has evolved to be more inclusive?

There is definitely a lot more emphasis on shade range for both base makeup and color cosmetics now to include women of all skin tones, with a strong market opening for Asian Brands (thanks to the Korean wave) and an appreciation of the USPs of brands from countries outside of the West. There is also added emphasis and effort put towards creating products to meet very specific needs of the customers as opposed to a cookie cutter approach when it comes to product development. Lastly, makeup is no longer just for women. I believe it has truly become a tool of expression of inner self for women and men alike – and there’s nothing more beautiful to witness than that!

Love, Fioyo review

Q: What are some misconceptions about organic beauty products?

There are misconceptions that organic products don’t perform like regular makeup (are not as pigmented and long lasting for example) and that they have a shorter shelf life. That is why we focus a lot on product performance as well as shade variety when creating our formulas, to ensure that users get what they are looking for in makeup while enjoying the peace of mind that is safe to use as well. We also use natural preservatives to ensure that the shelf life of the products are as long as regular chemical based makeup.

Q: What are your thoughts on Love, Fioyo’s philosophy of empowering women to be confident and to “be their own label”?

Absolutely agree! Every woman should be their own brand, their own advocate. Makeup, like fashion, to me is meant to be used as an avenue for individuals to express themselves and showcase their creativity, not to hide who they really are. As Oscar Wilde says “Be Yourself. Everyone else is already taken”

Nerissa Low

Q: You too are a firm advocate for women’s empowerment. How do you think like-minded business owners can come together to make a difference?

I believe that women are extremely powerful beings, and even more so when we band together. But we first need to see it for ourselves and understand that no woman is an island. Strength comes from unity and I believe every like-minded business owner with a mission dreams of leaving a legacy and making a difference to the planet. This is not an easy feat, and if it is a collective dream, then why not leverage on our strengths for a unified effort to build something bigger, better and get there faster? As a start, if we come together with the intention of collaboration instead of competition, then there is very little we cannot do!

Q: What is your advice to women struggling with self-acceptance and self-love?

A really good friend of mine once told me, while I was trapped and not able to extricate myself from a toxic relationship, that if I don’t love myself enough to do what’s needed for ME, then I don’t deserve love from others. That hit me hard, and I garnered the courage to walk away from that relationship. If we rely on others to make us feel accepted or loved, we will never get what we need. At the end of the day, we are all responsible for our own thoughts and feelings – you already have all the love you need within you, and when you learn to embrace that, then acceptance and love from others will flow too. Societal standards of beauty and what’s acceptable have also made it almost impossible for a woman to feel good enough these days. So my advice is to take whatever you see on social media, movies, magazines etc with a handful of salt (haha!) and spend more time getting to know yourself, and surround yourself with people who lift you up.

Come. Join # ilovefioyo women community for more interesting and engaging content from inspirational women around us. Love, Fioyo is on a mission to help women realize their self-worth. We are here to support each other in this journey to stand with confidence and be our own labels.

Dresses Online: 10 Types of Dresses You Will Need

Dresses Online: 10 Types of Dresses You Will Need

We all know that having a little black dress in your wardrobe is an absolute necessity. However, dresses come in so many styles and designs that you ought to have a variety in your closet. Choosing the perfect one for you amongst the vast choices of dresses online can be a daunting task, but we’re here to put you at ease with these 10 types of dresses to start with!

1. Pencil Dress

Pencil dresses are known for their narrow and straight silhouette that accentuates the hips and tapers on the knees – the bodice of the dress is equally tight fitting. Usually, this dress is in darker colours making it perfect for an office wear. Pair it with heels and you’re good to go! 

2. Bodycon Dress

Adorning a bodycon style dress with sleeves up to knee length is a sure chic way to rock the look more modestly. Bodycon dresses emphasize your silhouette, making your curves look seamless and flattering. Rather than clinging onto your shape, they trace it leaving you looking elegant and classy. Gaining popularity, they come in a range of styles and fabrics easily available in many online dress boutiques.

3. A Line Dress

There is never a bad time to wear an A-line dress. Whether it’s a casual party, an office event or meeting up for brunch, this dress is an absolute winner. A line dresses are simply magically – they are fitted to your waist, and then flare out gradually minimizing the hips and thighs while drawing attention to your upper body.

4. Midi Dress

Midi dresses are always in fashion and are perfect for any occasion. Heading to a fancy event? Look for a more formal midi dress in bold colors! Midi dresses also come in different styles with varying necklines and center slits. You can also find dresses online with different types of sleeves – off shoulder, spaghetti strap or a simple cap sleeve.

5. Shirt Dress

This versatile shirt dress gives you a choice of lengths, sleeve lengths, and hemlines. Wear it in solid colours or with printed designs and instead of going for a fitted silhouette, why not try a loose, more care-free one! The large variety that is available in the online dresses market gives you the chance to create amazing outfits for any occasion.

6. Shift Dress

Loose fitting shift dresses are comfortable and perfect for a more relaxed setting. Pair it with flats to keep the casual look or be bold and match it with heels and some accessories to jazz it up. A shift dress usually hangs loose from the shoulder without a fitted cut which makes it an easy dress to thrown on. Every woman should own one!

7. Leather Dress

While cotton or cotton blend fabrics are great, you should consider investing in a leather dress. Made of high quality, genuine leather, it’s a perfect addition to your wardrobe. Leather dresses are both classic and unique – it offers a style that differs from the existing styles in the market. Pair it with boots and you’re all set to unleash the rocker in you!

8. Slip Dress

A simple slip dress is an ultimate closet essential. Belted, layered or worn with a jacket, it’s the one piece of dress that can be worn for any occasion. With minimum effort, a slip dress transforms an off-duty outfit into something special. For a grunge style, pair it with combat boots and take on a cool ‘90s edge.

9. Asymmetrical Dress

Asymmetrical dresses are gaining popularity because they immediately give off an artsy vibe. They are edgy, hip and appeal to anyone looking to stand out. The vertical lines create an elongating and perfectly complement various body types. Be a little experimental the next time you shop online for dresses and pick out an asymmetrical piece!

10. T- Shirt Dress

dresses online -T Shirt Dress
T Shirt Dress from Love Fioyo

T-shirt dresses came first, and shirt dresses were a derivative of this trend that was started in the 60s. A t-shirt dress is a lot more informal and focuses largely on comfort. It might seem like a men’s t-shirt that is elongated to become a dress. As they are typically cut without a seam. These dresses often have a looser fit.

Choosing a dress for yourself need not be so tedious. Now that you know what essentials to stock your closet with, start your online shopping and look out for these styles. Feel free to explore the wide range of dresses in Singapore you can find online at Love, Fioyo and pick out the ones that speak to you – at the end of the day, we want you to express and own your style. Not only do we have a whole range of dresses for you to browse online, we also pride ourselves in instilling confidence in what you wear.

An Interview with Fion Tay by ShopperBoard


Empower Yourself and Be Your Own Label

with a thoughtfully crafted Love, Fioyo piece

(This post was first published on ShopperBoard:

The beginnings of independent fashion label Love, Fioyo can be traced back to a lavish wedding boutique where our founder, Fion Tay accumulated 15 years of experience in bridal styling.

A bold experiment and natural evolution of Fion’s strength as an entrepreneur cum fashion ambassador, Love, Fioyo strives to be a one-stop shopping destination for the everyday woman, from fashion clothing to couture gowns. Guided by their empowering brand philosophy of ‘Be Your Own Label’, every Love, Fioyo piece is designed and released in limited quantities, akin to handcrafted artworks produced by skilled artisans.

Fion is truly honored to be featured as the first inspiring girl boss on ShopperBoard, a popular fashion marketplace to speak on our brand’s philosophy, female empowerment and the future of fashion.

Prior to Love, Fioyo, you cut your teeth as a developer after graduating with a degree in Computer Science. What inspired you to take the leap into entrepreneurship in bridal styling and now, contemporary fashion?

I love challenges and I’ve always had a passion for clothing. Growing up, I’ve always been intrigued and fascinated by the qualities of uniqueness, elegance, and style embodied by the fashion industry. The creation of a bridal boutique is a clear testament to that. Witnessing the joy of others through the whole bridal styling and wedding process really made it all worthwhile for me. It ultimately made me realise that a woman should not only feel beautiful on her wedding day, but also every day of her life. With this in mind, I dived into contemporary fashion.

You’ve written and published ‘How To Be Your Own Label’, a motivational E-book that encourages self-love and self-acceptance. Can you share with us a self-care technique from the book that always works for you?

I emphasise on setting time aside for myself at least once a week to enjoy time with my inner self. I like to read books on enlightenment. Lighting up a candle or turning on the aroma oil diffuser is usually my Sunday self-care habit.

In a go-getter society like Singapore, women like yourself are empowered to wear many hats. What do you think is the greatest strength that a woman can harness in today’s world?

Have a dream and a clear vision to achieve it. Once you know what you want to achieve, overcome your fear and go for it. No dream is too small or too big. Dreams are powerful and they keep us alive, giving us a purpose to work towards.

Between Kate Middleton’s timeless elegance and Meghan Markle’s trendy and bold fashion choices, whose style do you personally resonate with?

Megan Markle’s bold fashion choices. Her style is similar to my fashion philosophy, where I like to explore the infinite possibilities in which I can express myself.

As a fashion entrepreneur, which famous female figure is your muse and how does she inspire your designs for Love, Fioyo?

Berta Balilti. I love her designs and she never fails to surprise us with her avant-garde style and bold choices.

How has the current WFH situation due to the pandemic impacted your design process for women’s workwear?

The designing and creative process is definitely not affected. In fact, I have more time at home to focus on conceptualising. However, the execution and production of the design is delayed due to this pandemic.

fashion maketplace

What change would you like to see in the fashion industry, and how does Love, Fioyo fit into your vision for the future of fashion?

Sustainable fashion. Green is the new black! We are launching a gown rental platform for special occasions. Keeping fashion sustainability in mind, the outfits are designed such that it can be customised for any type of occasion.

Which piece of advice that you’ve received would you pass on to budding female entrepreneurs who are looking to start their own business?

Always innovate and keep brainstorming for new ideas. Don’t blindly follow footsteps as everyone is on a unique path. Be willing to try—failure always has a negative connotation, but it actually means you’re innovating and trying different things to move forward so just keep pushing!

Once again, thank you to ShopperBoard, the trendy fashion marketplace for the great support given to Love, Fioyo.

Shop Women Clothes: 7 Fashion Style Tricks To Make Yourself Look Taller

Embrace useful fashion style tricks to create the illusion of height!

Clearly, we are all about body positivity, and we love the way our bodies look no matter what but that doesn’t stop us from lusting after certain features that we may never have – such as height! But we can do is to embrace these fashion style tricks to create the illusion of height while you shop for women fashion clothing.

Opt for ankle pants

Ankle jeans is probably the easiest and most obvious fashion style trick to adopt and look taller. They somehow create an illusion to make your legs look longer and skinner. It might because it appears to look as if you have “outgrown” the pants.

Wear vertical stripes

Horizontal stripes make you look wider while vertical stripes do the opposite. They make you look taller and skinnier. Vertical stripes can be worn as tops or bottoms (just not together!)

High-waist everything

Wearing a pair of high-waisted jeans, shorts or even a skirt can trick the eyes into thinking you have a longer lower body. An extra fashion style trick: tuck in the top to truly highlight the effect of a high-waisted bottom.

Don a V-neck

V-shaped necklines give the illusion of a longer torso, and longer torso ultimately makes you look taller. Furthermore, V-necks are easy to incorporate into your everyday attire – be it for work or even a casual day out.

Try pointed-toe shoes

Pointed shoes appear to elongate your leg. If they are pointed heels, needless to say, they already add height to your look, but now the super trendy fashion style is to wear pointed-toe flats – and guess what, they also provide the illusion of you looking taller.

Go monochromatic

A monochromatic outfit creates a cohesive look which guides the eye up and down your body, making you look taller. Different colours indicate where your torso starts and ends but if you go for one colour, you will create one long line – which again creates the illusion of being taller.

Tailor your outfits

You don’t have to literally tailor your outfit but definitely avoid baggy, boxy, oversized clothes. If you’re aiming to look taller, you need to ensure you shop the right women clothes. Your clothes should fit you right giving you that tailored look.

Body positivity is not only about accepting your body and loving it for the way it is but it is also about acknowledging your desire to look certain way and adopting positive ways to achieve those looks – wanting to look a certain way need not always have a negative connotation, and we are here to guide you every step of the way with the latest fashion style tips and tricks to achieve your dream look.

Singapore Fashion Stylist: Easy Fashion Tips From Fion Tay

Singapore Fashion Stylist

We dress to impress? No girl, we dress to express.
– Fion Tay

Fashion is about living in the now. Every day when we get dressed, we’re recreating ourselves. That’s an amazing thing! Our clothes speak our personalities, and the same works for fashion stylists. They create masterpieces inspired by their own style and their vision for the fashion industry. Singapore fashion stylist, Fion Tay taps on her new label, Love, Fioyo to illustrate her style and her vision to empower women.

Love, Fioyo plays on Fion’s signature style of minimalism to create charismatic, bold and classic designs.

As Fion launches Love, Fioyo to help women express themselves, she reminds us that fashion’s job is to create desire – not only desire for the name of a brand. While fashion, tastes and brands turnover at a dizzying rate, we should not lose sight of what makes great fashion: quality, passion, vision, human connection and love.

Let’s get a glimpse into the fashion tips and tricks from the founder of Love, Fioyo and Singapore fashion stylist: Fion Tay.

Q: When did your interest in fashion begin?

It started when I was a young girl playing dress-up with Barbie dolls. I used to gather material and sew tops, skirts and dresses for my dolls. I think the fondest childhood memory was when I would rally all my neighbours’ kids and orchestrate a fashion show. Even at that age, I used to think about details such as the theme, music for the fashion walk and the clothes to wear.

Fast forward to today, I am grateful to be putting my passion for fashion styling into creating my own fashion label for women.

Q: What are your favourite pieces in your wardrobe?

Wow, this is difficult. I can pick 3 types of ladies’ wear.

  1. Jackets of various kinds ranging from bomber, denim, woollen and even casual blazers to bring a look together.
  2. Unique skirt designs including using materials like tulle and satin especially those that has a body-hugging, snug fit with an overlay that adds that extra touch to make it unique.
  3. Harem hip hop pants are making a comeback in dance and fashion. It gives your legs a bold, playful edge.

Q: What are the essentials in a woman’s closet?

Every woman has her own go-to outfits that she just knows works well for most occasions. I would say jackets are a must! You’d be surprised to see how a simple jacket can just bring the whole look together.

Of course, without saying, every woman should have a little black dress. It’s a classic and you can’t be without one. It’s a must have dress recommended by most fashion stylists.

Q: What shopping philosophy should women adopt?

At the end of the day, you have to feel good. Forget about the trends for a second and look for quality material. Most importantly, the clothes you choose should represent you.

Shop around, don’t settle till you find your own style.

Like I say, you got to be your own label!

Q: How do you want women to feel when they wear your clothes?

Ah this is simple! It’s my women’s clothing line’s philosophy.

As a Singapore fashion stylist, I want women to walk around with confidence and show the world what a strong woman you are.

In other words, everyone is a lady boss with dreams and aspirations!

Singapore’s fashion stylist, Fion Tay

Q: There is so much pressure on women to always look good. What would you tell women?

We dress to impress? No girl, we dress to express.

Don’t blindly follow trends or what you see on magazines. I know we hear this being said by not only Singapore’s, but all fashion stylists and I also know it’s easier said than done. As women, or even as humans, we are very used to comparing ourselves to what society labels as “perfect”. Find your own perfect.

You are who you are. Be your own label.

Q: 3 words to describe your style

  • Sleek
  • Contempo Cool
  • Charismatic
