SWIPE IT L™e It’s mt

CLEO (Malaysia) - - EDITOR'S NOTE -

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)!

Start tak­ing notes – this month, it’s all about dis­cov­er­ing what’s worth swip­ing for!
