Going back to Singapore has been always on my bucket list since I left there, like, 1 year ago. To most people, Hong Kong and Singapore don’t have much differences: same concrete jungles, same colonial backgrounds, both influenced by Chinese and western cultures… However, if we look it in a micro way, the differences between these two cities are still obvious: from office culture to people’s favourite pastime, from languages to people’s attitude towards work-life balance… things are getting different in many ways. But for me, those differences in a nutshell could be sensed in a very direct way: outfit.

I dress up differently in these two places. When I lived in Singapore, I would prefer to wear more skirts/dress and outfits with floral patterns, and I also pay more attentions on some specific textures such as chiffon and cotton. I think it’s because the weather is always hot and full of sunshine in Singapore, so I would focus more on the “breathable” texture and more bright/sharp colors to fit the blue sky and green trees. In contrast, when I am in Hong Kong, linen, silk and nylon materials are my favourites: unlike Singapore, the summer weather in Hong Kong is quite unstable and the indoor/outdoor temperature could be very different: the indoor area is freezing cold all the time while the outdoor area is sticky and hot as hell. So I would prefer some comfortable and neat materials that could help me to keep warm in the office/lecture hall while could also absorb my sweat when I’m out. So in a nutshell, what I wear in Singapore is casual and tropical, while in Hong Kong my preference would shift to minimalist and easy-to-wear commuter style.

So this time, when I travelled back to SG, I tried out more tropical-style outfits with multiple concepts: beach, all-black and 70’s retro style… check them out 🙂 (@Fashionmimo)

Oh, and last but not least, Happy 2nd Bloggaversary to Fashionmimo.com!!
