There’s no doubt that Hong Kong is one very stylish city — just take a quick glance around on the street and you’ll see more dapper gentlemen and perfectly put-together fashionistas than you can count. And of course, Hongkongers dress to the nines for the many parties and social functions that fill our diaries every month, catching the spotlight with their one-of-a-kind fashions. That’s why, every month, we select the most stylish ladies and gents in town.

We all know the head-to-toe pantsuit, especially with checked prints, is the go-to look right now, but how can you make this power look more nightlife-worthy? Wear it off-shoulder over a black camisole/tank/bandeau top, and you’ll be ready for a drink and a quick pose for the camera.
The black and white ensemble is always a sophisticated choice, and we love how this lady on the right highlighted the look by choosing a sweater with bell sleeves and white frills, along with ankle-length tapered trousers for an elongated visual illusion.
As we mentioned in our style resolutions for the new year, we’d like to wear more colours in 2018, and this fashion guru on the left just gave a perfect demonstration of the visual impact created by donning a biker jacket in an eye-catching pop of blue, or even better, in cushy velvet. Maximise the wow factor with a daring hair style, and balance it out with muted tones for the rest of the outfit.
Skinny jeans are so outdated, so if you’re shopping for new pants, make sure you choose anything but fitted. We like this fashionista’s (on the right) choice of velvet pants with a loose, relaxed fit, which can be taken easily from day to night.
Standout stripes have been a strong recurring trend in womenswear, and Christine C. has done it well by pairing the pattern with long flare pants and a corset belt to define the waist and add extra visual interest.
The hooded sweater is trending heavily at the moment, so why not mix it up with a silver skirt and thigh-high boots for a party-worthy look?
Fashion designers are combining their menswear and womenswear shows, and with that has also led to more gender-neutral clothing on the runway. This style lover on the left went for a trending streetwear-inspired combination by wearing a hooded sweater layered under a utilitarian jacket.
Gentlemen should be able to have fun and experiment with fashion from time to time, and Joey Ma is showing us where to begin by wearing a sweater with big ruffles, paired with black trousers to achieve a playful but still presentable look.
