The latest look that almost every guy can pull off requires an essential piece of apparel: a jackets or pullover, depending on whether you want it to be casual or more formal. I recall that just a few days back my brother was asking me for some advice and I gladly helped in putting his outfit together. It was really fun talking about it (he loves fashion too!) and I was impressed that he actually looked pretty good!
Anyway, some takeaway points from that experience:
- For guys, never wear more than 3 distinct colours at once. Shades of the same colours are still fine, but too many colours just show how hard you’re trying…and still failed.
- Stripes and checks simply do not go together. I believe there’re exceptions, depending on how you match them, but most people cannot pull it off.
- You may wear 2 pieces of checks/stripes – say a checked/striped shirt with a pullover or cardigan that also contains stripes/checks. But seldom can you wear one checked and one striped and get away without looking like a clown! Oh, and remember not to wear them in close proximity to each other!
- Never underestimate your footwear! It can either make or break your outfit! Sometimes I’m wowed by some guys on the street who can dress, until my gaze travelled all the way down to their shoes. Epic disaster when you wear a blazer or formal-looking pullover but the beauty of it all didn’t make it to your feet. Tsk! Anyway, you can still try something unexpected – like a pair of brighter coloured shoes despite an overall black/blue/grey/white appearance. Just don’t splash on neon red, yellow or green. Traffic stopper? Eww.

Speaking of suede I’m completely in love with this pair of MiuMiu-Inspired Dusty Pink Suede Heels by BonitoChico! I’ve backordered it because I couldn’t get it the first time round, hopefully I’ve managed to clinch the deal! It’s hugely pretty!

3 TO GO!
Ok, this is really random but my brother and I were so tickled by this advertisement when we were watching television just now. This commercial by Heineken has been airing for some time, but whenever we see it we can’t resist imitating the way the guys reacted when they saw the “unlimited supply” of beer in that walk-in fridge. *flapping hands in excitement*, huh? LOL!
And this is the other version, equally hilarious! Enjoy!
Oh, did I mention that I love Heineken?
