Get the Look: The XX
Here’s something for those who don’t chase the mainstream to rejoice about – English indie pop band, The xx will, be holding a one-night-only concert in Singapore on the 25th of July.
Formed in 2005, the trio comprising of Romy Madley Croft, Oliver Sim and Jamie Smith are no stranger to the fashion industry – after all, vocalist and bassist Oliver Sim was poster boy for French fashion label Dior Homme’s campaign. Always clad in black, these style chameleons effortlessly swing from straight-off-the-runway spiffy to badass punk rock.
Dress to impress in a killer all-black ensembles. Using the ebony shade to their fullest advantage, the trio cut a slim and slick silhouette without showing any skin. Don’t lose your edge even when in formal wear.
When in doubt, rose gold on ebony should be your go-to combo. The deliciously flirty metallic shade paired with the darkest of the colour palette will give your masculine outfit an instant feminine twist. Pro tip: to really draw attention to your look, choose an oversized watch as a statement piece and sure-fire conversation starter.
Black is Back
Black doesn’t mean boring, and The XX showed us just that. Another signature look adopted by the crew is a bomber on black tee ensemble. Romy Madley Croft and James Thomas Smith also have a penchant for rocking rugged bomber jackets with contrasting, delicate embroidery.
To add an extra dose of cool to your all-black ensemble, jazz up your outfit with these understated timepieces for instant minimalist chic. Decked in monochrome shades in a clean Scandinavian design, invest in these watches for the fashion long run.
