SWIPE IT Le It’s mt
There are two definitive things that make the outfit. While we may question his social media etiquette and attempt to make #malepolish a thing, Marc Jacobs hit the nail on the head when he said, “Clothes mean nothing until someone lives in them.” It’s ultimately you who makes the clothes.
The second? Accessories. I don’t listen to my mother as often as I should, but if there’s a single lesson that I’ve adopted and am grateful for, it’s to always invest in your handbags, shoes and jewellery because they hold the power to elevate just about anything. You can always fake it with the clothes (thank you, fast fashion) when you make up for it with killer accessorising skills.
Think of it this way: If your outfit is a dish, accessories are the secret ingredients that will turn it into your signature. So go ahead, pile them on in layers and own it – we’ve designated a whopping 12 pages of accessories alone, ensuring options for just about every personal style, with the styling tricks to boot (page 124).
While we’re on the topic of shopping, let’s talk about the white elephant that’ll be hanging outside your fitting room – your man. We took the liberty of finding out exactly what goes on in his mind while you’re on a mission to malls (page 142). Once you’ve sorted him out, why stop there? The world is now your emporium, and we’ve carefully curated the best of what it has to offer on and beyond local shores (page 162)!
