Welcome to our Spring 2014 issue; a celebration of newness, Spring fashions, pastel palettes and basic shapes, with an undercurrent of chic, effortless style which makes the trend so much cooler!


There are few fashion brands that have achieved the level of global reach that Canadian, international fashion and footwear brand, ALDO has. In this issue, we proudly present ALDO on ZALORA. ALDO is a leader among the modern, contemporary high street brands of today, and we are thrilled to launch the iconic brand on ZALORA for the first time. ALDO launches its Spring 2014 collection online – a unique and identifiable, pop-colour range of shoes, bags and accessories for women and men. This season’s collection and campaign is energetic and fun with added elements of mischief and colour. Inspired by 80’s and 90’s fashion and pop culture, ALDO showcases the trend’s most coveted pieces – neon pumps, block-heels, over-sized sunnies and statement necklaces in our exclusive GIVE ME ALDO fashion feature.


Newness meets awesomeness with River Island Spring 14 new arrivals now available for you to get your pretty little mitts on! Enjoy the eclectic mash up of floral, monochrome, metallic, sporty, feminine chic and rock ‘n roll pieces up for grabs this month, and revel in awe-inspiring fashionista style in ISLAND GIRLS.


We all love a good, solid Spring trend, a la A POCKETFUL OF PASTELS, which confirms that nothing can conjure up chic Spring style quite like the pastels. We are also exploring the notion of the ‘anti-trend’ #normcore trend-turned-movement, which has taken on a life of its own lately. See ZALORA’s take on it in BACK TO BASICS featuring EZRA Basics, Mango, American Apparel, River Island and more.


Look out for the top MENS TRENDS, coupled with some good ol’ fashioned style advice from our ZALORA style advisor, and checkout what’s new from global sports juggernaut, NIKE in THE SNEAKER SESSIONS.


Just do it.

STYLE ADVISOR

THE ZALORA STYLE TEAM IS SERIOUS ABOUT SOLVING YOUR FASHION AND STYLE ISSUES.
THE STYLE ADVISOR HOPES TO GIVE EXPERT SARTORIAL ADVICE ON HOW TO MAKE THE SEASON'S KEY LOOKS WORK FOR YOU.

GEORGE: Dear ZALORA Style Advisor, my company has just recently implemented a Casual Friday policy in the office and although most of my colleagues are thrilled with the notion, I must admit, it has me a little bamboozled! I am dressed in suit and tie Monday to Thursday, which requires minimal thought on my part, I am struggling with my Friday outfit as I have to really think about what to wear. My outfits need to be casual but conservative enough for a corporate environment. Could you recommend some good casual Friday looks?

STYLE ADVISOR: Hi George! Believe it or not, many white-collar men who bring their A-game Monday through Thursday struggle to rock a solid casual Friday look. It is either too much effort, they don’t know how to do it, or just don’t care to bother and end up wearing a suit minus the jacket and tie. Your letter was a pleasant surprise!

To give you a hand, our Style team here at ZALORA has compiled three well-thought-out casual Friday looks that are dress-down without breaking the rules of corporate dressing. ( Singapore’s perpetual summer had been considered in our discussion to make things a little easier)





CASUAL BASICS


A slim fit blue or grey check shirt is a staple for this look. Keep the checks small, the collar semi-spread, and go for a good quality cotton. Pair with khaki/chino pants —slim with a flat front and narrow legs — and woven or semi-smart belt.


THE TIED-UP LOOK


A slim, knitted silk tie (preferably in darker colours) is the key to this elegant, yet semi-casual look. Wear over a slim fit white shirt and a lightweight blazer. Make sure your blazer falls perfectly on your shoulders and its sleeves are long enough to reveal your shirt sleeve. Put on a pair of slim fit dark jeans with narrow legs—not baggy, not faded, and absolutely not distressed. Don’t forget the matching ribbon belt and a pair of boat shoes.


POLO CLUB


Polo shirts come in an array of shapes, styles and colours, but if you choose the right one in good quality cotton —then you’re on to a winning Friday look. For that modern preppy sophistication, ensure that the polo shirt sleeves hug your hard-earned biceps (but not too tightly). Pair it with chino’s or slacks to smarten up the look, and complement this less formal work ensemble with slip-ons or a pair of casual brogues. Complete the look with a leather-and-canvas bag.
