Steal her style

  1. Style up the staple white shirt by pairing it with wide-leg trousers and complete the look with a leather waist belt.
  2. When it comes to accessories, go for playful mini bags in cartoon character shapes, two-tone sunglasses and minimal jewellery.
  3. Keep your wardrobe palette clean by buying key items in colours such as blush pink, beige and black and white. If you want to keep up with trends, shop for  items in seasonal prints, like zebra and snake skin.

Steal his style

  1. Start by collecting printed shirts and wear them with solid-colour suits. For a casual look, go for shirts in tropical designs and chino trousers.
  2. Keep your accessories minimal by shopping for caps, sunglasses and watches to go with different outfits.
  3. If you’re planning on dressing down, choose sweatpants paired with high-top sneakers. Round off the look with a cap and a necklace.
