You may have spotted this intriguing hashtag popping up on your social media in the past month, and it’s no wonder why! Acer Malaysia has been busy, gathering a squad of fashionistas for the #13HourOutfitChallenge – a challenge that required them to share their personal styles that depict #BeautyThatLasts.
Inspired by the gorgeous Acer Aspire S 13 (check out its super slender body!) and long battery life, participants had to post their looks on Facebook or Instagram between 10am to 11pm; that’s 13 hours per day, which portrays the battery life of the Aspire S 13.
The rewards are awesome, of course. The top three best OOTDs every day received a RM150 UNIQLO online gift voucher and RM300 Acer voucher, and are in the running to snag the Grand Prize of an Acer Aspire S 13 plus an exclusive photoshoot with CLEO!
The participants’ outfit game was definitely strong, as girls and guys alike stepped up to the challenge with some stunning outfit picks, unique poses and creative backgrounds. We checked out the gallery of participants after the challenge ended on 25 September; here are some OOTDs that caught our eyes.
PohYeng’s well-balanced top-to-toe monochrome outfit is the epitome of casual chic, which she donned to chill at a cafe. Black and white combos will never go out of style (at least we hope so!) and perfectly portrays #BeautyThatLasts. Extra points for daring to pair culottes with on-trend sneakers instead of the culottes’ usual BFF: heels!

We can’t get over the adorable surprise element of this outfit! From the front, Harmini (who describes herself as a Malaysian Indian mermaid BTW) appears to be sporting a casual ensemble, but turn her around and voila! A back necklace with a plunging V-back. It’s almost like two OOTDs in one, eh?

Black on black on black with a black bag. Jeremy kept this all-black outfit interesting with different textures, fabrics and layers, while incorporating a pop of colour into the picture with creative use of the background. This minimalist dresser knows that the darkest shade in the book is like your BFF – it will always be there for you no matter the occasion.

We thought this could have been taken right out of the pages of CLEO! Kimberley took the palazzo pants from day to night flawlessly; with a simple switch of her top, heels and bag. Darker makeup shades and a classy up-do completes her transformation from shopping day to party night!

Amelia captioned this outfit as “B.O.Y”, and we give her a 10/10 for pulling it off with the perfect hint of femininity. We’re talking about the delicate rips in her jeans, figure-hugging tee and slender clutch that all spell G.I.R.L. We’re loving that unassuming pose, too!

The nostalgic vibe of this shot stands out to us, but not as much as Alex’s sleek sense of style. Confession! We stalked his Instagram and think some of his OOTD shots may just be mag-worthy *wink*. We also spied this dancer in action as well as in a cute Peter Pan costume that he wore for a friend’s wedding!

We love Ho Qi’s quirky sense of style and happy pose; it can turn any frown upside down! A high-necked, long-sleeved baby-doll top is not easy to pull off, but she managed to make it all mod and easy breezy with a hint of Blair from Gossip Girl. We wish we could see what shoes she paired it with though!
