If you are busy at work during the week, nothing is more relaxing than slipping into something comfortable over the weekend. However, its hard to keep track when you let your casual style get out of hand and slip from relaxed and comfortable to sloppy and very much the same from one casual day to another, till one day you discover that your casual wear does not match up to your style needs. This is where we come in and give you ideas on how you can take your casual wardrobe a lift. Below are some celebrity casual styles that we picked for you to get inspired. 1.

It’s easy to slip into shorts on your day-off. It’s so practical. However, most women also find this casual style option a little bit too laid back, get frustrated of their style routine and are not sure of how they can enhance it without giving up the comfort of shorts. Here are a few style tips to glamourise your casual shorts look: 1. No more dull pairing of shorts and t-shirts. Comfort is key but some interesting accessory details, can take the shorts and t-shirt look from undergroomed to effortlessly chic. Just a simple detail of a watch and a ring or necklace, whichever you prefer, matched footwear that is not Havaianas or Birkenstock, will do wonders.   2. Not so keen on fussing with the accessories? Then playing with shorts in different prints and colours could be an alternative. Pair them with blouses with some embroidery or print detail. Just a simple shirt tucked into the shorts, is chic and smart.    3. Smarten up the knee length shorts: Stylish bermudas are out there ! When styled with even a simple top/blouse, it can be so sexy.

Posted by imageandme in Corporate Style, shopping tips in Singapore, Style For Men

Men’s shoe styles are almost just as varied as women’s since there are different models to suit different occasions. Do you have classic oxfords for business formals, loafers for smart casual, sneakers or sandals for casual wear? The styles are varied and dress codes often need to be taken into consideration. Shoes are the foundation of your look and to convey your sense of personal style, it is important that your shoe collection is not simply limited to two pairs, one for indoors and the other for outdoors ! The basic shoe wardrobe should include the following: 1 pair of business formal oxford lace-ups 1 pair of business casual chestnut brown wing tips 1 pair of loafers, especially if you are required to take your shoes off when visiting asian homes and office ( like in taiwan). While these can be worn for business casual occasions, their level of fomality is less than formal. 1 pair of classic casual sneakers. A must have for every stylish guys wardrobe. Sneakers come in a range of colours, styles and materials and, just as a classic pair of jeans, are a personal style statement. 1 pair of sports shoes 1 pair of stylish slippers for…

Posted by imageandme in Online shopping, shopping tips in Singapore, Style For Women

We love metallics. Add a metallic detail in any form to your look and you take the look from ordinary to luxe. As the metallic trend continues in 2014, here are some ideas on how you can wear metallics. 1. Don’t be afraid to wear it in the day. Pair metallic with denim. Below is an example of a skirt with design details woven in metallic thread paired with a denim shirt for a stylish casual look. Team this with a black or navy bag with gold buckles and keep the footwear simple. 2. For a bolder day look,  go for a completely metallic skirt in jacquard with a t-shirt top. Yes it works and the combination of different textures makes the look very interesting.   3. Match a metallic patterned trouser with a simple black top. Very chic.   4. Use metal accessories to elevate the effect of neutrals. Pair shiny gold or silver with black, whites, grey or beige and see the outfit come to life.   Below are some style ideas of how celebrities have done metallics in the past: Bold metallics worn by Elle Macpherson (note the gold accessories paired with the silver) and Nicole Richie…

Posted by imageandme in shop in singapore, Shopping in Singapore, shopping tips in Singapore, Style For Women

Planning your look for the party season? You might have given a lot of thought to what you would like to wear, here are some ideas of make-up looks that you can try to match the mood. 1. Try a glitter liner just above your black eyeliner to add some sparkle.     2. Try glitter eye shadow for a combination of smokey and sparkle. For a very bold statement, try glitter eye shadow with diamante eyelashes, like Katy Perry. 3. If glitter is not something you feel so comfortable with then go for a little sheen with , right at the corner of your eyes to make them brighter and lift the look to match your party outfit. See it here on Blake Lively and Olivia Wilde.     4. If heavy make-up does not work for your eyes, highlight your lips. Play it up by lightening up the eyes and adding a strong dark colour to the lips. This look works better for those with fuller lips. A strong lip colour in a maroon or deep red works both for women with dark or light hair colour. See it below like Camille Belle and Emma Stone. Shop in…
