“Fashion Diva”, “Fashion Guru”, “Fashionista”, “Fashion Expert” are terms we hear and see often on the blogosphere and other than our beloved Rati, the name that pops into my head when I hear these terms would have to be Ms. Chriselle Lim. I am sure many of you may already be familiar with her work, but those of you who aren’t, you guys are in for some serious “fashionable” treat!
The following is from her blog’s “About” page:
“Starting off her career as a fashion wardrobe stylist, she logged in years of editorial shoots with prominent fashion books. Chriselle Lim, a Wardrobe Stylist turned Personal-Style Blogger and Youtuber, has been creating quite a stir in the fashion industry chronicling her personal style, DIY projects and daily inspirations. In December, 2011, Chriselle partnered up with Michelle Phan, The #1 subscribed female on Youtube, to bring fashion tutorials online. That summer, Chriselle created her own channel in hopes to empower women and girls all over the world to discover their true beauty and employ fashion to give them the confidence they need to feel beautiful. Within a short period, over 160,000 people have subscribed to her Youtube channel, making her the #1 fashion expert on all of Youtube.
This blogger-slash-video blogger is now one of the most influential tastemakers on the web, and if her addicting daily musings are any indication, the best is yet to come.”
As mentioned above, even I first saw Chriselle’s work when Michelle Phan had her in this video of her’s and boy I was hooked on this new girl and how!
Shortly after, Chriselle launched her own channel on YouTube with this video and I am happy to say that I am amongst some of her earliest subscribers:
Each one of her 40+ videos are true gems of fashion tips. It has been less than one year since she started uploading her own videos and already she is “the #1 fashion expert.” In just about 10 months, she has nearly 10 million channel views! For achieving a feat like that, one can imagine how richly talented she must be.
She uploads videos on several of fashion areas such as:
- Dressing according to body type.
- Latest trends.
- Travel-friendly fashion advice.
- Colour coordination.
- Multiple ways of wearing one/few piece(s) of clothing/accessories.
- Dressing according to weather.
and so on and on and on!
I do love all her videos and strongly recommend anyone to go through them all, but some of my absolute favourites are:
In this “Fashion Rules That Are Meant To Be Broken,” the way she takes care of every detail of an outfit from top to bottom is genuinely very helpful! An absolute must watch.
This video “7 Basic Pieces – 14 Different Looks” will make life easy and dressing up in the morning so much more quicker, it is full of smart tips and the fact that she uses only the basic pieces is surely pocket friendly, as we pretty much always have most of such pieces. I find such videos to be great confidence boosters. It is so refreshing when fashion expert advices that you needn’t go out of your way to be fashionable, just peep into your own wardrobe.
“20 Ways To Transform A Piece of Fabric Into A Shirt, Skirt, and Dress!” is one of my favorite videos EVER till date. The editing, the concept, the styles, the tips, the colors, everything about this video is UH-MAZING! You have to watch it to believe it. If you have time for just one fashion-related thing in life, then I would suggest let that one thing be watching this video and no, I don’t believe I’m exaggerating at all. 😀
No matter what video or image Chriselle uploads, I first always check out her accessories. Sheer genius! She changed the way I wear my accessories for any outfit. Simply love the way she pairs different pieces.
This “Accessorizing Your Big Night!” video has tips about accessorizing for prom, but her pointers can be used by anyone, any day for any look and check out the bling shown in this video!
Coming to her DIYs, each and every one of them are fun and simple. For instance, this video “DIY – The French Tip Shoe” is great for those willing to experiment on some shoes. If you have a boring pair of sandals that you barely touch, then jazz it up with this simple idea.
With the ongoing summer trend here, this video, “DIY- Neon Jewellery + Shoulder Cut Out Shirt,” surely goes a long way in funking up those boring pieces of jewellery we have lying around.
By now, you must have a fair idea on why I absolutely love her channel. Fashion is a part of our everyday life. We make, consciously or sub-consciously, multiple decisions about fashion every single day. So, I believe that watching such videos make our decisions easier and when it comes to our wardrobe with a little thinking and proper perspective, we can always customize these fashion tips to suit our style, our budget and our comfort.
I hope you all enjoyed reading this and also that you do check out Chriselle Lim’s work online. I guarantee that it will be worth it!
