Top Trends: Top style trends in Bali
In Bali, it is all about stylistic minimalism and simplicity. The key to keeping your look minimal is choosing to wear simple silhouettes with the right accessories that transcend from day to night. All you really need is one simple piece. Less really is more. Play with color and texture.
Street Style: Best street style looks
Stylish but relaxed and easy. Linen dresses, distressed shorts, straw hats, and bags to take from day to night. Street style is all about comfort chic. My favorite accessory being sunglasses (aviators are still my favorite), and the Carolina bucket bag from my own label!
The right combination elevates an outfit perfectly.
Style Muse: In your opinion which celebrities epitomize Bali chic? And why?
Rocky Barnes, the fashion blogger epitomizes Bali chic for sure! She wears relaxed ensembles with sexy cuts and bright pops, perfectly. More recently, Kareena Kapoor’s Maldives looks definitely epitomized island chic, as well. Straw bags, easy kaftans and bright colors definitely certified her as Island Savvy and Bali ready!
Highlights: for shopping, style watching (all fashion related) etc.
Bali, The Island of the Gods offers a heartwarming array and experience of history, culture, and traditions through architecture, people and style! The creative energy is palpabale. From young gen fashionistas to veteran/icons. Bali is a meeting ground of Island warmth and fashion enthusiasts. A simple sarong, an iconic Balinese traditional wrap around – is so beautifully styled by tourists and locals alike. This is jut one example among many chic and individual ways people express themselves in conjunction to Islands warm soul.
Bali High: Top style brands from Bali (can mention ahikoza here too)
Bali has some great brands!
To name a few
Mister Zimmi, Magali Pascal, Lulu Yasmine and
Ahikoza. All luxury yet accessible brands right in the heart of the island.
The chicest must-visits: restaurants, bars, clubs, neighborhoods etc
Bali is an island that is always up beat and pumping.
Living here, I always love exploring new joints! So many parts of the island that are yet to be explored. Current favorites and must go to’s I would have to say are
-The Alila Seminyak, for great day and night beachfront dining.
-The Savage Kitchen, Canggu is a chill spot with yummy comfort food.
-Karma Kandara Beach Club in Uluwatu for great daytime beach club experience, amidst clearest waters on the Island.
-Newly Opened Bali Praia for an elevated lounge experience!
Last but not least-of course Ubud. That area has amazing hidden, and hole in the wall gems. Bisma 8 Hotel, being my current favorite.
