Hey handsome hunks, here’s a little inspo to switch things up this weekend.
We reside in a city where summer is all year long, as if we’ve got a permanent spot on hitting that 30 degree-celsius temperature. Yet our lack of real seasons does not give you an excuse to keep it boring with the same old dull, natural tones. We rather embrace this warm weather and experiment a little by being more adventurous with the way we dress up.
That’s why for brunch this weekend (or any other weekend), we’re all about fresh prints, bold colours, and tie-dye patterns, because your wardrobe needs a slice of vibrancy. Between that charming aura and vibrant personality, throw in the right apparel and you’re sorted for the weekend.

If you need a jazzy shirt to spruce things up, this bold geometric patterned shirt works perfectly to fit the mood. Designed to be worn untucked, this open collar shirt boasts a casually cool vibe. The bold pattern gives you that London Overground upholstery feel, and given that’s its quite a star in itself, it’s best to be matched with a light pair of white khaki pants or white jeans alongside a pair of old-school sneakers.
