Just like a lady’s Little Black Dress, shirts are an undeniable staple in every man’s wardrobe. At least, they should be.
There are a lot of shirts available in the market. From affordable brands such as G2000 to higher-end retailers such as Ben Sherman alongside departmental stores offering the best of the best, it’s easy to get lost in all the options available.
From smart casual Oxfords to sleek dress shirts, we break down the things you should look for when purchasing and investing in a shirt.
There’s a shade of red
for every woman.

Festivities and preparations for Lunar New Year is in full swing. If you haven’t prepared a parent-approved yet #OOTD-worthy outfit or planning to do some last minute shopping, here are some tips of the trade when styling and purchasing your new CNY wardrobe additions.
The Lunar New Year is fast approaching, and we sure hope you’re prepared to usher in another auspicious year ahead. Between busy schedules and a long list of things to prep for the occasion, it’s totally forgivable if you chose to skip out on purchasing new clothes for the new year.
While dressing in red for the new year might have been the longstanding tradition for most families during this festive season, some of us might have outgrown the tradition of wearing and purchasing new red garments, either for practical reasons or fear of looking a little too over-excited.
The year has barely even started and all of social media is already sizzling and buzzing with back-to-back teasers on this year’s Spring/Summer 2016 collection.
One of our favourite advertising campaigns so far has got to be the unveiling of this year’s new #BALMAINARMY, featuring our all-time favourite industry players, the original queens of the runway and fashion editorials: Naomi Campbell, Cindy Crawford and Claudia Schiffer.
The festive season is fast approaching and we’re expecting a never-ending to-do list and a packed back-to-back weekend. Between last minute gift shopping, meeting year-end deadlines or the impromptu meet up with the friends you didn’t manage to meet as often over the past few months, it definitely seems like there’s not enough time to breathe, let alone worry about what to wear.
We’ve curated a few looks for the festive season and incorporated PANTONE’s 2016 colour of the year to get you kick started and hopefully give you inspiration when putting together your own festive season ensemble!
Remember the granny hair trend? (Check out the article we wrote here!) Since A-listers like Cara Delevigne and Orange is the New Black actress Dascha Polanco was seen sporting these new grey-dos, the trend caused massive waves in the fashion world, what with its unique shade and controversial colour contrasting beautifully against all skin tones, making the fair look fairer (much to Snow White’s distaste) and bringing that glow out of that brand new spray-on tan.
She’s one of the few natural redheads who’s managed to rock her famous auburn hair on the redcarpet (wow, that’s alot of red in one sentence!), usually dolled up in an old Hollywood glam style. Jessica Chastain, 38, who recently hit it big in theatres with her portrayal of the deranged and mad-with jealousy Lucille Sharpe alongside Tom Hiddleston and Mia Wasikowska in Guillermo Del Toro’s thriller-horror box office debut, Crimson Peak.
I’ve always been a fan of Robert Zemeckis’ Back To The Future Trilogy, with the flying hoverboards and DeLorean time travel. To be absolutely frank, I’ve had quite a thing for Michael J. Fox for the longest time, even with the height difference (he’s only 1.63m!), I was willing to make it work. Ah, teenage crushes. It almost brings me back to my old room with the double-decker bed.
You might remember this little devil as part of the iconic double trouble team, along with his twin brother Dylan Sprouse. The Sprouse brothers were splashed all across Disney Channel’s The Suite Life of Zack and Cody. Popular in the mid-00s, few might actually recognise Cole from playing the precocious Ben Geller in F.R.I.E.N.D.S, as dorky Palentologist’s Ross Geller’s son.
You hardly ever see solid Halloween brands in Singapore, do you? I’ve always wondered how cool it’d be to turn up to an October 31st party in your own garb, sans costume, but Halloween-themed. Honestly, we’re just praying that Australian brand Black Milk Clothing will be coming to Singapore soon.
Just check out their new Lady Anarchy line – From macabre blood splatters to sketchy haunted house leggings, the only thing keeping Martha Stewart from wearing these is well… nothing.
