GRAYE's mens styling series is a compilation of styling tips for our FW'17 pieces. Tired of magazine campaigns that fuel unrealistic ways to wear your clothing? Here we demonstrate the different ways you can style our pieces for daily wear. Be it for work, a casual day out or on a tropical holiday, we teach you how to utilise your wardrobe staples and accessorise to achieve distinct looks for different occasions.
Casual Day Out:
Enjoy your quiet afternoon catching up on your work or cafe hopping in our linen shirts and dual toned marled grey pants that are incredibly comfortable to lounge in. The pants are well draped and the structure facilitates movement. Keep this look unfussy with loosely styled hair and casual white low cut sneakers. Minor details to watch out for include- unbutton one or two shirt buttons to achieve a more relaxed look.
Q: How to style a street-casual outfit that is versatile for nightlife too?
A: The humidity in Singapore is REAL, making layering a tough trend to follow. Fortunately, our faded camo hoodie is made with a light-weight polyester linen blend that is sturdy yet breathable. Wear our faded camo hoodie with a pair of ripped jeans and sneakers for a street-casual look that is suitable for a weekend brunch date and can be worn throughout the day until it is time to hit the bar for drinks with your pals. For this particular outfit, we chose a white long sleeve top that pairs well with a mid-tone denim in a regular cut. The rest is up to you.
Semi formal workwear:
Q: How can you jazz up your Noir Linen Jacket for a more formal occasion?
A: We suggest wearing a light coloured convertible collared shirt underneath the linen jacket for a colour contrast, and slip on a pair of formal wool blend pants ( dark blue, grey or black). Wear a statement watch and one or two leather bracelets on your wrists. Finally, go for a pair of leather brogues to bring the entire look together.

Travel Look: Travel in style for your next tropical holiday
Our Olive Slit Collar Top is a wardrobe chameleon with its subtle collar detailing and breathable fabric qualities. For your upcoming tropical holiday, try pairing it over a white tee and our Melange Grey Linen Shorts for a comfortable journey to and fro the airport. Accessorise with a plain snapback and some high cut converses and for an understated backpacker vibe.
Q: GRAYE’s signature style described in an entire outfit?
Q: Does GRAYE have any sport luxe pieces for guys who like to gym?
Yes! Our FW’17 collection includes more drop-crotch pants in wide leg cuts. With so many variations, we could not resist designing our own version of drop-crotch harem shorts- Frolic Harem Shorts. Here we chose to pair them with a pair of high-cut sneakers and a sports duffle-bag that you would need for a good workout at the gym.
