Welcome to our Spring 2014 issue; a celebration of newness, Spring fashions, pastel palettes and basic shapes, with an undercurrent of chic, effortless style which makes the trend so much cooler!
There are few fashion brands that have achieved the global reach that Canadian, international fashion and footwear brand, ALDO has. In this issue, we proudly present ALDO on ZALORA. ALDO is a leader among the modern, contemporary high street brands of today, and we are thrilled to launch the iconic brand on ZALORA for the first time. ALDO launches its Spring 2014 collection online – a unique and identifiable, pop-colour range of shoes, bags and accessories for women and men. This season’s collection and campaign is energetic and fun with added elements of mischief and colour. Inspired by 80’s and 90’s fashion and pop culture, ALDO showcases the trend’s most coveted pieces – neon pumps, block-heels, over-sized sunnies and statement necklaces in our exclusive GIVE ME ALDO fashion feature.

Enjoy the eclectic mash up of floral, monochrome, metallic, sporty, feminine chic and rock ‘n roll pieces up for grabs this month, and revel in awe-inspiring fashionista style in ISLAND GIRLS.
We all love a good, solid Spring trend, a la A POCKETFUL OF PASTELS, which confirms that nothing can conjure up chic Spring style quite like the pastels. We are also exploring the notion of the ‘anti-trend’ #normcore trend-turned-movement, which has taken on a life of its own lately. See ZALORA’s take on it in BACK TO BASICS featuring EZRA Basics, Mango, American Apparel, River Island and more.

THE ZALORA STYLE TEAM IS SERIOUS ABOUT SOLVING YOUR FASHION AND STYLE ISSUES.
THE STYLE ADVISOR HOPES TO GIVE EXPERT SARTORIAL ADVICE ON HOW TO MAKE THE SEASON'S KEY LOOKS WORK FOR YOU.
GEORGE: Dear ZALORA Style Advisor, my company has just recently implemented a Casual Friday policy in the office and although most of my colleagues are thrilled with the notion, I must admit, it has me a little bamboozled! I am dressed in suit and tie Monday to Thursday, which requires minimal thought on my part, I am struggling with my Friday outfit as I have to really think about what to wear. My outfits need to be casual but conservative enough for a corporate environment. Could you recommend some good casual Friday looks?
STYLE ADVISOR: Hi George! Believe it or not, many white-collar men who bring their A-game Monday through Thursday struggle to rock a solid casual Friday look. It is either too much effort, they don’t know how to do it, or just don’t care to bother and end up wearing a suit minus the jacket and tie. Your letter was a pleasant surprise!
To give you a hand, our Style team here at ZALORA has compiled three well-thought-out casual Friday looks that are dress-down without breaking the rules of corporate dressing. (Singapore’s perpetual summer had been considered in our discussion to make things a little easier)
THE TIED-UP LOOK
Toki Low Leather Sneakers are unique, with their thick mid sole and suede upper section for urban edge. The fabric lining has a luxurious feel and the large contrasting brand logo detail adds the pop of colour that your outfit has been missing.
Cheyenne 2013 OG Sneakers are great for walking, running, and shopping. The refreshing green shade give an energy-boost to an otherwise ordinary look.
Wardour Chukka Sneakers encapsulate what stylish men are looking for - a timeless colour combo and a touch of casual swagger!
The Riviera Leather Sneakers are a NIKE bestseller, and we can see why. The casual, classic, colour combo, style and shape are fit for every man's wardrobe.
