Poh Heng Freestyle Diamond
From Silicon Valley techpreneurs to K-drama oppas and leading ladies, there’s no denying that millennials have a minimalist approach to dressing. Think: neutral colours, clean lines and timeless silhouettes. This pared-back philosophy extends to accessorising too, with most women opting for nothing other than a pair of stud or hoop earrings. The truth is, like a blank canvas, a minimalist wardrobe is the perfect backdrop for you to flaunt your creativity. Enter: Poh Heng Freestyle Diamond collection.
Inspired by geometric motifs that play with shapes and textures, its latest series showcases the baguette cut diamond in 18K white gold. The resulting necklaces, bracelets, earrings and rings allow you to stay true to your less-is-more aesthetic, without sacrificing on style and expressiveness.
Here’s a guide on how to mix and match your accessories for any occasion, so you can create a look that is uniquely yours and give your OOTDs a glow up.
For the workplace

A classic white shirt is a must-have in every minimalist millennial’s work wardrobe. But how do you stand out amidst a sea of white shirts? By pairing yours with a selection of dainty accessories in a matching colourway, of course.
Hardcore minimalists can opt for simple yet sophisticated designs such as a bracelet with interspersed diamonds. If you’re open to switching things up, pick a design with baguette diamonds arranged in a Tetris-like manner. Stack your chosen bracelets on your wrist and ta-dah! You’ve customised a look that’s all your own.
Add to the layered aesthetic with rings on every finger, before finishing off with a pair of diamond-studded hoop earrings to unleash your inner girl boss.
For a fancy dinner

Say you’re headed to a romantic restaurant for a fancy date night. You already know exactly what to wear: an off-shoulder red dress inspired by Park Min Young’s character in What’s Wrong With Secretary Kim.
Up the wow factor by offsetting a bare neckline with layered necklaces. The trick to pulling off the look is to pair a simple thin necklace with another that has a more eye-catching design for the perfect contrast. Style the necklaces with matching bracelets, rings and earrings to make a statement without veering into OTT territory.
Even if you are missing Park Seo Joon by your side, you’ll still be well on your way to becoming the star of your own rom-com.
For a first date

If there’s one thing more synonymous with millennials than avocado toast, millennial pink would be it. Combine the two at your next first date at a cafe or restaurant by extending the colour palette to your outfit, while keeping to a sleek and simple silhouette. A pastel pink slip dress, for example, is the ultimate lovechild of ’90s minimalism and the modern-day millennial aesthetic.
Complement the sweet yet sultry look with a selection of classic fine jewellery. Diamond necklaces, slender bracelets and dainty rings stacked on alternate fingers will ensure you make a striking first impression.
After all, in the immortal words of Rihanna, you deserve to shine bright like a diamond.
For brunch with the girls

You might not be able to go cafe-hopping in cities like Bangkok and Seoul for the time being, but thankfully, there’s a slew of new cafes to check out right here in Singapore. Welcome the weekend with a bright knitted top and a pair of denim jeans to give off an insouciant French girl vibe.
Spice up your outfit with 2 necklaces of varying lengths: a longer necklace with a few diamonds and a shorter necklace with a diamond drop pendant. A diamond ring, along with diamond hoop earrings or studs cap off the look.
You know what they say, diamonds are a girl’s best friend. So what better occasion to rock your diamond pieces than when with your actual besties?
