The Quintessential Beanie

In Yoyo's case, there's always the perfect beanie for every outfit. Throw on a regular knit beanie for the cosy vibes or go all out with neon colours and unconventional textures.

Le Chic Beret

Be it classic black, Leopard print or stripes, the beret gets the stamp of approval from the style savant herself. Très chic indeed!

The Versatile Headscarf

Thanks to the recent Y2K wave, the headscarf is experiencing a resurgence. Yoyo shows us her two favourite ways to wear it: Bandana and turban.

Hoops for Days

Possibly the most versatile earring style, Yoyo effortlessly pairs them with both casual and business-formal outfits.

Shady Business

Whether it's a minimalistic pair of rectangular-framed shades or avant-garde peepers that'll make heads turn, Yoyo shows why they're an essential part of any outfit.

All That Glitters

All that glitters might not be gold—but it sure adds extra bling. From diamond encrusted accessories to intricately bejewelled headpieces, Yoyo stuns in dazzling resplendence.

Cinched & Secured

A great way to play with silhouettes, belts are high up on the style icon's list. Wear it high to accentuate the waist or lower to embellish the bottoms.

Keep Warm

If looking chic while staying warm seems like an impossible mission to you, Yoyo's here to prove otherwise; with her fluffy array of stylish earmuffs, elegant scarves and even a dramatic Russian hat.
