Location: Las Vegas, Nevada

Outfit: Pastel Pink Button Down (Topman) | White Tank Top (The SM Store) | Linen Trousers (Uniqlo) | Sneakers (The SM Store)

Prior to my trip to Vegas, I was told that the weather could get as hot as 45 degrees. Great. Just when I was about to move on from my printed button down phase, I had to bring back this style and take it all the way to Vegas. Living in a tropical country, this was nothing—or so I thought. But we’re not here to talk about the Vegas heat—we’re here to talk about why you shouldn’t be afraid of a light-colored outfit.

Let’s face it, no matter how many trends come and go, us guys stick to our usual ensembles—and I’m talking about jeans, sneakers, plain t-shirts, caps, you name it. Most of the time, these pieces are in dark hues. Black, navy blues, olive green, burgundy—this is the palette within our comfort zones. Now don’t get me wrong, I don’t see any problem with this (as this is how I usually dress everyday too lol) but experiment a little bit with your personal style

—you might just find something that works best for you! I happen to love experimenting with my style when I’m out of the country. Sure, my style is nothing crazy—but for me, it’s not how I would usually style my outfits. Especially in the states where no one really gives a sh*t about you, trust me, this would be the perfect time.

Baby steps. Start with the pieces in your wardrobe that you already have, but mixing it with the ones you wouldn’t normally think of pairing it with. I happen to have this pair of white linen trousers, paired it with my white tank top and wore a super light pink printed button down. Viola. Nothing crazy, but still something a little out of my comfort zone. Start with gathering all your light-colored pieces and work your way from there. Good luck!
