Standing out is key to being remembered, and people nowadays know how important this is. In fashion, your signature look will take you from being part of the crowd to being an icon. But separating yourself from the rest can be quite a challenge—think of countless girls with the same style preferences, same wardrobe items, same fashion sensibilities. The answer? Curation of pieces—that's really why we hunt far and wide for pieces that will set us apart, yes?
An interesting option new treasure trove of chic fashion finds from all over Europe is Tryst, a multi-brand concept store which founder Michele Chan describes as it's "like walking the streets of Europe." From waxed skinny jeans and tailored coats, to beautifully hand-crafted flats and printed silk tops, exude the European flair with every piece inspired by her many travels all over the continent. Find one-of-a-kind items as they limit the pieces they bring in—an assurance of exclusivity.
Tryst offers a refreshing take on chosing in-house brands. "We are always in search of what can complement our wardrobe every season without discarding our old pieces," Michele says.
