Having traveled Asia, I always thought East Asia was fashion forward, especially Hong Kong and Japan. In recent years, East Asia has begun to look to South Korea and Japan for all of their beauty and fashion trends. Korean and Japanese pop groups rule the radio waves and music television and so do their style and flare. I had always gone to YesAsia.com to pick up the latest Mando-pop music, TV series, manga, and electronics, and when they launched YesStyle.com, I was equally eager to enjoy the accessibility to East Asian fashion and beauty products. From tees to cute blouses, jeans to adorable jumpers, YesStyle.com’s shop provides every level of fashionista the tools to look your best.
YesStyle.com provides more than just the hottest designer labels and great discounts on favorite beauty brands. Ask Nikki! is a section of YesStyle blog where consumers can ask YesStyle’s resident fashion guru. One of her latest blogs answers a first-time intern’s question about how to dress professionally while still being able to express her fun personality. Per the website, Nikki’s closet features “an eclectic mix of bargain and high-street finds, but she also loves her jeans and white shirts”. Nikki offers great advice on fashion with pictures to help all of the visual learners out there. With easily available archives, there are volumes of fashion advice for everyone who wants a little help to become more fashion forward. I stand behind her motto: “Love your body and never apologize for who you are.” To read more about how to dress in the office without losing your sense of style, check out http://www.yesstyle.com/blog/2011-04-21/nikkis-inbox-the-office-intern/.
