With the burning hot weather in Malaysia, the Malaysian Style is the best way to depict Malaysia’s local street style fashion. From summer dresses to crop-tees, there is no better way to describe Chan Zilin’s style.
Introduced by a mutual friend of ours, Chan Zilin was the first person that came through her mind and I decided that she was the best selection to write Echo’s first article about fashion on campus.
Echo is proud to introduce the 18 year-old Sunway College female student, who is currently enrolling in Foundation in Arts. Not influenced by the programme she studies, she is a natural when it comes to styling herself for classes in college.
Amazed by the way she dresses herself, I was curious by the the real reason behind it. Driven by the hot weather in Malaysia, she said she did not appreciate wearing tops with sleeves and long pants as the weather is a concern for her.
Her style? She loves casual and summer street styles. Instead of wasting too much time thinking how to mix and match her clothes, she prefers wearing simple tee-shirts and crop tops with shorts.
When asked about her favourite brand when it comes to shopping new clothing, she enjoys shopping at H&M. The reason is that H&M has all sorts of clothes, selling at an affordable price.
Like everyone, who loves American and Korean street style fashion, Chan is in love with Selena Gomez and Tiffany Hwang and hopes she could dress like them.
Her top three must-haves in her closet are her shorts, crop tops and tank tops. Because, well, living in Malaysia is kind of like living near an active volcano.
She also mentioned that she cannot live without her favourite black shorts.
When asked to choose between comfortability and prettiness, she chose clothes that are comfortably pretty. She would not buy if a top is comfortable, but not pretty, and vice versa because she doesn’t want to waste her money on something that makes her uncomfortable or insecure in any way as she is probably going to wear it for the whole day.
