Chia-Wen perfects the smart casual look. Dressed up, yet still laid-back, this is daywear with a difference. Dressed in a tight fitted black leather jacket with a sweet buttoned up floral dress underneath, Chia-Wen brings colour to the streets of London with highlights of bright turquoise blue and mint green. To finish her look she sports bright red lips and white Ray-Ban style sunglasses.
