5 Looks To Spice Up Your Work Week

What to wear 

Trying to decide what to wear from Monday to Friday can become a stressfull situation especially if you have a closet full of clothes but it still feels like you have nothing to wear. Keep on scrolling for some ideas that might just make your work week more bearable and set it off on a great fashion week.

Monday is like the “eek” day of the week you just want it over and done with and then forget about it.
Why not start it off, with a feeling of freedom and running wild, full of postive enegy. Because if you start Monday on a positive note the rest of the week might just fly by. So, go Boho in this simple yet pretty folk dress with embroidery from La Redoute . Upgrade that low-key dress with a pair of Pink sequins embellished western boots from River Island and you are ready to head out the door and into the office door. A uncomplicated yet dazzling look for a trouble-free day.

On Tuesday you are fully awake to the work week and you can dress like you mean business you are the boss lady after all. I say go all out and show your creative fashion flair in frills and check. The white high vamp slingback kitten heels from the River Island's Limited Edition will show that you are confident and unafraid. Paired with a black and white Prince of Wales check pencil skirt from Debenhams and the Ivory frilled pussy bow blouse from Studio by Preen for a touch of feminine yet strong #bosslady in charge look.

Wednesday, ladies night, so you want to be ready for that after work cocktails. The black PU mini skirt with the black Embroired mesh top from Primark gives you just enough sexy for that glass of wine or maybe two cocktails after work. Add in the sequins bow detail block heel ankle boots from Very and you are set for the day and whatever the night brings.

Thursday you are recovering from those after work drinks so, you do not want to much hassle or think to hard about what to wear. The velvet maxi floral dress from M&S and the mustard velvet block heel ankle boots from New Look is stylish, trendy and hassle free. Slip it on and you will look as fresh as you did Wednesday morning.

the day after the night before

Friday, the day we all dream about when we step into the office on a Monday morning. Show your excitment that the weekend is on its way. Play the wolf in sheep skin, grinning from ear-to-ear that you are so happy that the work week is coming to and end. The silver mini skirt form Primark paired with the pink pastel shaggy cropped fur jacket from Miss Selfridge and the nude boucle boot will set the mood for a fun and crazy weekend.

Six Things Making A Bold Statement For Men

“Make it simple but significant”, said Don Draper, a world-renowned character in Mad Men TV series. From the viewpoint of fashion and menswear, the saying does apply to what a man should know when it comes to his choice of clothing items. Below is the list of six things that every man should own in his wardrobe to make him simply significant.

1. An elegant suit

What makes a man genuinely a man other than a properly tailored suit? Even though your job does not ask you to put on a suit to work every day, you will never know what comes when you least expect it. So you better choose a versatile one that would work for all the occasions that might arise such as a wedding, a job interview or even a date in a nice restaurant. More importantly, when buying yourself a suit, choose it wisely. A well fit suit can make a less expensive one more expensive, so think twice before spending money on purchasing a suit with a cheap price that doesn’t fit you at all and, most importantly, makes a suit no longer a suit.

2. A plain T-shirt

Needless to say, a mono color T-shirt is a right fit for every on-the-go guy who always rushes out to an appointment, a meeting or even a date in no time. Your choice shouldn’t be limited to just merely black and white; a diverse collection of colors will be more beneficial one way or another such as navy, green, grey, etc. It is the simplicity in the color and the style that makes a crewneck T-shirt an indispensable item in the closet for such a simple guy. So if you are not always interested in standing in front of your closet wondering what to wear every day, simply grab a plain T-shirt and head out. However, it is advised to buy the popular and up-to-trend brands rather than the unknown ones for a more comfortable and complete experience.

3. A pair of dark jeans

A pair of dark jeans is a good fit for a simple guy to some extent, as it is without any difficulty to mix and match with any item in his closet. Choosing the best jeans is no longer beyond imagination as you now have a wide variety of choices from world-famous brands which are internationally distributed to any part of the world. If you happen to be a tourist in Vietnam, especially in Ho Chi Minh City, it’s never out of hand to find a perfect pair of Levi’s, Diesel, or Calvin Klein jeans in any shopping center with high quality at a reasonable price.

4. An on-the-go bag

If you are a guy who is always busy getting out on the street with a lot of things to carry with, a bag is a savior to your situation. Today’s life might call for a bag you can put everything into in any minute, so you better have one in case. It could be a backpack, a holdall, a shoulder bag or even messenger bag as long as it’s a fit for your everything. Once you decide to purchase yourself a bag, choose the best one, for a well-known and high-quality bag not only makes you look genuinely good-looking as a whole but also gives you the confidence you need when rushing out on the road.

5. A leather wallet

A wallet is no stranger to a man as it is one of the must-have items every man should never forget to bring along when heading out. The wallet is important to a man like the lipstick to a woman. Lipstick, especially a good-quality and international branded one, is what makes a woman, no matter how pale she is that day, more lively and confident but if she happens to forget it at home, it is sort of a disaster. So is the wallet. Therefore, you have made a wise decision if already buying yourself a high-quality leather wallet to make you the type of man every woman should be looking for. Besides, wallets can be made of various materials, but those of leather are one of the best.

6. A decent wristwatch

Last but not least, a decent wristwatch is a must-have item, so indispensable that every man should get him one no matter what it takes. After getting well dressed, all you need to have the good look is an accessory that inserts the final piece to the complete puzzle. It goes without saying that a watch is the last piece that every man should be looking for. Like any other item, you better buy the good one, favorably the best selling or international branded watches. Once making the purchase, you will not regret for the elegance and completeness it adds up to any outfit of your choice.

So, if you are still puzzled about where to buy a well-known and quality-ensured watch, Cititime Mall is the place you should be visiting when coming to Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. In Cititime, you have nothing but an endless variety of choices in wristwatches from international brands such as Guess, GC Watches, Oris, Titoni, ST Dupont, etc. More importantly, as a tourist, you can earn a greater advantage of tax refund when purchasing a watch in Cititime Mall. It is the perfect destination for the locals and the travelers to HCMC to not only buy the best watches of their favorite but also have the fulfilled shopping experience.

Hats

A hat makes for a great accessory no matter the season but are more prominent during autumn. While the weather is still hot and sunny you can wear it to protect your hair from sun damage or to hide a bad hair day.
