After nearly a week of looking at outfits ranging from the #philophiles at Celine, the bizarre but wonderful at Comme des Garcon or the neon-peacocks at Dries Van Noten, the runway guests at Stella McCartney seem like a palate cleanser.
The similar vein when it comes to the outfits of these stylish showgoers? The smart jacket or coat that makes everything you wear less casual. And yes, this includes jeans and sneakers.

While the colour of your blazer should match your bottom but what you might not know? A corduroy one gives your outfit the texture it needs.
The addition of sequin embellishments take muted colours and smart tailoring out of the ‘generic’ suit jacket territory.
It’s a major trend this fall: The stitched contrasting fabrics in one garment. We can’t confirm on the affordability of this coat but here are some high street options that come in a variety of “fashion” and everyday ones. Kudos if you get our reference.
The difference between a mac and trench? The mac always comes in a lightweight fabric as opposed to the trench which generically weighs heavier.
A boxy shouldered and double breast upper is formal whilst shorts on the bottom is great for our climate. The “stiff” suited playsuit is the formal alternative to the usual relaxed ones we wear.
We could go on about the benefits of the classic trench: The camel shade plays well with other colours, they’re usually water repellent and they’re the ultimate in looking French chic. They’re also great for keeping warm in colder climates, but here in Singapore wearing it solo as a dress is something we’re all for.
We’re calling them the boyfriend trousers because they look like you’ve pilfered them from your boyfriend’s closet. But, for those who’re vertically challenged, a quick stop at the tailors works wonders.
The surest way to make sure your blazer fits exactly as it should? The sleeves shouldn’t extend past your arms and they should stop preferably 2 fingers above your wrist. You’ll be able to lift your arms with some give and button it up nicely without unsightly bulges.
