High-profile digital influencer Chriselle Lim obviously knows a thing or two about fashion. The uber stylish entrepreneur and founder of The Chriselle Factor has over a million followers who closely monitor each and every stylish move she makes on her Instagram page. Always dressed to impress in high-end designer duds, Lim is now part of the fashion world she loves so much with the launch of a second collection from her signature namesake label. Fittingly, the theme of The Chriselle Lim Spring 2019 Collection is “blooming” and bursts of a fabulous 28-piece line featuring stylish tops and blouses, figure-flattering blazers, dresses, skirts, high-waisted trousers and pinstripe shorts. “I designed this collection during my pregnancy and wore it during my postpartum period as I embraced my new curves,” shares Lim. “Most pieces, if not all, are stretchy and flattering for all different body types.” Available in sizes XS to XL, there is a suitable style for women of all shapes. We asked the fashion maven, who recently gave birth to her second daughter last September, what she would pick from her collection for another trendsetting, high-profile mum-to-be, Meghan Markle. “I could totally see Meghan wearing the Dion Dress, Cherie Cinch Blazer and the Celine Sweetheart Dress, Lim says. “She has such great style—super classic but she also adds a bit of edge in her own way.” Keep an eye out royal watchers and check out these fabulous picks from Lim’s flourishing label now available at Nordstrom, Bloomingdales and Shopbop.
