The Travel Junkie Modern Classics in Vietnam – Kisses from Saigon….

Here are some of my favourite trends this Vietnam trip!

In fact, I see them more as my modern classics now, as I have happily adopted them into my fashion repertoire and they are here to stay.

Japanese hats – I always try to wear a hat to keep the sun off my head and face. And I have gotten very bored of my floppy straw hats, that – yes even I will admit – look a bit dorky. So, if anything, the recent trend of stylish hats has made it acceptable to wear a fancy hat ALL THE TIME. And I’m really happy about that! This hat is my favourite fancy felt hat from Kebayoran secondhand markets, Jakarta.

Balinese sarong – Whether they are sarong, I have grown to love blue ‘accessories’ and they are now my new neutrals. This sarong is one of my sarong collection from Badung market, Bali.

Retro Cat Eye Sunnies – Ok as a fashion trend, these are not exactly a breakthrough. Cat eye sunglasses have been around since the 1950s, made popular by Audrey Hepburn and Grace Kelly in the 60s. But the combination of oxblood + tortoiseshell + cat eye frame + Prada… makes it a new classic to me! This pair adds an understated cool to all my outfits. This sunglasses from Ray Ban retro ‘cengdem’ sunglasses shop in Melawai market, Jakarta.

Barong Tees – I’ve been loving this Balinese barong design on my tee. I think they are a fresh alternative to the orange/brown barong print. Plus they are much more balinese locales, as red, black and green goes with anything! These tees are from Rip Curl the search, Bali.

Soft Pink Shirt – It is lovely! Sometimes I love going back to fashion basics. I always feel comfortable, effortless and stylish in a simple, classic outfit. I picked the unbrand shirt from a factory outlet in Bandung, West Java.

The Shorts – This is definitely one of my Top 10 favourite shorts. And I can’t believe how affordable it is. This is pretty classic in style, from Polo by Ralph Lauren.

Black Converse Chuck Taylor – Look what I got! And they look aaaawesome! very comfortable to wear and I guess everybody wears them nowadays.

Perfect for travelling.


Happy Sustainable Travels!
