Masks to match every outfit

by jialezheng   ·  10 months ago   ·  

As we all step out of our house, the face mask is the accessory that we’ll always have to remember to have on. While disposable masks are available now, it’d be best to invest in reusable cloths face masks that will be less wasteful and environmentally devastating. The reality is that face masks are going to be a staple in our wardrobes to come, so it’s no surprise that masks are coming in all colours and designs to cater to different outfits, with style trailblazers and fashion-forward individuals making it a point to match their face masks to their outfits.

We’ve rounded up our favourite face masks that are breathable and comfortable, while being super stylish. And since fashion is a way of self-expression, why not pick a mask that lets you be creative and escape the mundane life. Shop away and pay later with Atome to pay later in three interest-free payments over a period of three months. It’s a simple checkout, with no hidden cost or processing fees.

Herschel has launched face masks that are available in stores in Singapore across the island. Inject some colours into your outfit and find one that suits your everyday look (or buy one of every colour to match your different outfits!). Head over to any Herschel Store (or Bratpack at Bugis Junction)  and pay later with Atome to split your bill into three easy parts.

We love this set of daisy print that are made with 100% Organic Quilter’s Cotton – a material that has a tight weave and thick thread that’s super effective at blocking respiratory droplets, while remaining breathable and comfortable to wear. The super fun daisy print is a great print that will bring a smile to everyone’s face (even if it’s hidden behind their mask!)

Jo Kilda has launched a series of masks, and they’re made with 100% raw silk and satin silk lining (both of these fabrics have been repurposed from their fabric archive!). This makes the masks super gentle on the skin, and aids in achieving smoother and hydrated skin over time.

Why not have some fun with prints with these super adorable masks from Mori Official that will sure bring a smile to your face. Each mask is handmade and has three layers of fabric filters, with the inner lining made of cotton for comfort!  Plus it has a pocket for an optional filter, and it comes with adjustable garter cords!

This comfortable and beautiful mask features Purpur’s in-house floral print. It comes with adjustable ear loops (yes!) and a filter insert. It’s such a stunning mask that we know that it’ll be something that you’re reaching for over and over again. The best part is that you can get this floral blouse from Purpur to match!

Lastly, this mask from Dr.TWL is perfect for those suffering from Maskne.

Mismatched sneakers that will turn heads everywhere you go

by jialezheng   ·  10 months ago   ·  

Sneakers are everyone’s go-to shoe of choice, and it’s easy to see why – they’re comfortable and super versatile. Gone are the days when sneakers could only be worn with jeans or to a casual event, now, sneakers can be worn with even the cutest dresses and have earned their own reputation, creating their own following of ‘Sneakerheads’ who wait for brand launches.

One of the favourite places to shop is on Novelship. Known as the most-trusted marketplace for exclusive sneakers and streetwear in Southeast Asia, you can find the hottest pair of sneakers on their site. Whether you’re looking to cop the highly hyped Air Jordans to the latest Supreme releases, they’ve got it all (or until they’re sold out!). We can’t deny that sneakers have become a central component of our wardrobes, and many of us are really passionate about the brand, style or even the silhouette of sneakers that we wear.

Mismatched shoes have always been loved by and spotted on celebrities around the world and it’s easy to see why all the fashion icons are quickly picking up on this trend. After all, fashion is all about having fun and being true to yourself. Plus if both shoes go with the outfits and you can’t pick, why choose when you can rock both? Now you can own what you love and pay later with Atome, so you can buy two pairs of shoes, and only pay a third of the price at checkout, with the remaining over a period of two months, at 0% interest!

Here are some of our favourite mismatched sneakers:

The Gel Lyte 3 is an iconic sneaker and a groundbreaker with its game changing innovation. This particular version features Sean Wotherspoon’s signature corduroy panels and split tongue. The best part is that each shoe is intentionally mismatched, so you don’t have to buy two different shoes!

Nike Air Max 1 is an icon in the sneaker industry, it was the first shoe to incorporate Nike’s Max Air technology, those air pockets in the midsole. Since then, the shoe has seen various designs and colours, but we’re loving the colourways that are inspired by cities. The cool colours represent London, and the warmer tones are seen on the Amsterdam sneakers, mixing and matching both of these would result in a fun outfit!

We love a clean contrast, and nothing is more distinct than black and white. The famed brand sacai, Chitose Abe, launched the stunning sacai x Nike LDWaffle, which comes in All Black and All White. The shoe is a hybrid of LDV and the Waffle Racer, and it sports a nylon mesh upper and suede overlays.

The Nike Air Force 1 was sold out almost immediately when it first dropped, which isn’t surprising for Supreme drops! However, the shoes were restocked due to the high demand, and we’re super siked that Novelship carries both colours, so you can easily mix and match the sneakers!

To celebrate the spirit of sneakers and streetwear, Novelship and Atome will be having an exclusive giveaway, and you can stand a chance to win:

A pair of Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG ‘Tokyo Bio Hack’

Or a pack of Supreme Playing Cards.

Dress for success – how to make a lasting first impression on your virtual interview

by jialezheng   ·  11 months ago   ·  

In this new norm, we’ve adapted to all things virtual. At the start of Circuit Breaker, we’ve moved all meetings with our friends, co-workers online as we began staying at home more. So it makes sense that interviews are done virtually – but what should you wear? Dressing for interviews are stressful, it’s important to make a good first impression, after all, this could be your future employer, but you want the style to remain true to who you are, and what you can bring to the table.

No matter what you don, it’s important to come across looking polished, professional and capable. But added that it’s done online, it’s another challenge. You no longer can win them over by a firm handshake, or smelling great – everything done online is all about playing to the eyes, letting your body language speak for itself – sit up straight, smile and ensure your background is neat (if not, always add in a virtual background!)

In terms of outfits? We believe that you should get fully dressed, that means no pyjama bottoms. Getting fully dressed like how you would for a normal interview helps you get into the role mentally. Not sure what to wear? We’ve got just the picks for you!

We love this comfortable button down dress from HollyHoque, you can’t go wrong with white or black for an interview. It’s easy enough to dress up for a more professional look, but it’s classy enough on its own.

Blazers are the answer to everything if we’re being honest. If the job you’re interviewing for has a more relaxed culture, you can stand out from the crowd with this houndstooth blazer, which features a pretty colour in an office friendly print! Layer it on top of neutrals for a casual professional look.

Get dressed for success in this midi dress from ACW! It comes in neutral shades so you can shine and have interviewer’s focus on you, while being simple and clean enough to come across professional.

Lastly, this modern and sleek midi-dress is a perfect to keep things classy and stylish. You can easily dress it up with a pair of simple earrings, and a blazer for a more corporate look.

We know how stressful interviews are, and virtual interviews are set to continue to be the new norm for the foreseeable future. No matter what you’re feeling, look and feel your best and put your best foot forward. Shop your favourites with Atome and pay later to split your bill into three interest-free parts!

Stylish and functional bags that you can take everywhere

by jialezheng   ·  11 months ago   ·  

Although the majority of the workforce in Singapore is continuing to work from home, some offices have started to open up with safe distancing measures in place.

Backpacks are something that you can find in every household. It brings us back to school days when we had to lug around heavy books to and fro classes, without hurting our backs (weight being distributed evenly, and what not – it’s physics). That being said, choosing a backpack when we enter the corporate world can be a challenge, after all, we want to make a good first impression everywhere we go – especially if we’re heading from the gym to work. That’s why this Nixon backpack is definitely a keeper, it’s big enough to stash your work clothes and your laptop, and stylish enough to bring to and fro meetings.

A trusty briefcase is your best friend. It’s classic and practical, and emits a timeless look to you. This stunning briefcase from Faire Leather Co is a sleek addition to your wardrobe. There are various compartments for easy organisation and you can even have it monogrammed to make it uniquely yours.
