Fashion Trend 2008

December 15, 2007

Fortune Magazine predicted that scarf will be one of the top five fashion trends in the year of 2008. I totally adore scarf and think that it is the best accessory to keep me warm and fashionable. In summer-all-year singapore, we don’t have a lot of chances to rock a scarf. However, moving to australia gives me opportunities to buy some really nice scarves and keep my neck warm!

Here is diane kruger rocking the scarf trend. I like her boldness and creativity of pairing a cute scarf with a cute white dress..

Recently I had attended a couple of job interviews. Due to my limited wardrobe, I am very limited in my choice for interview attire.. I normally wear a suit. Apart from business suit, are there any possible choices?

First impression is the most important one. Every interview tips will include an advice for you to wear appropriately. As in many advices, the attire should be appropriate to the industry you are working in. You should always look professional, tidy and put together. I believe we can also use our clothing to express our personality. Although it is advised that the attire should be subtle and preferably dark colour, can we wear some brighter colours? Can we not wear suit?

I think suit is still the best choice as it is formal. It is always better to be too formal then too casual!

This is my only suit which I bought it in a shop, namely DANO in Singapore for about SGD120..
