Every day feels like a T-shirt day
It’s hot and humid all the time and we just want to wear a T-shirt or tank top out – until we realise it’s a sure way to get a warning from the boss for violating the office dress code. Singapore may be an air-conditioned city, but it’s swelteringly hot the moment you step out of the office. Our best bet? Something airy, flowy and made of comfortable fabric – basically, anything from the UNIQLO Drape collection.

Our meeting calls for smart attire but a shirt is too stifling
Everyone’s go-to “smart outfit” is a shirt-and-skirt combo, but who said you can’t look laid-back and formal at the same time? Just pull on the Drape Long Jacket from the UNIQLO Drape collection to take your outfit from casual to formal instantly. You can even keep one in your office in case your boss calls for a last-minute meeting during on one of your self-declared dress-down days.

We always end up wearing wrinkled clothes
Let’s be real, ain’t nobody got time to iron clothes in the morning. Which is why wrinkle-resistant pieces like those from the UNIQLO Drape collection are at the top of our to-buy list. This also makes nua-ing on the office chair a whole lot easier, because you don’t have to worry about your clothes being creased at the end of your slack sesh.

Mixing and matching requires too much brain power
Don’t talk to us about complementary colours in the morning. Let’s be honest, the only colour that matches with yellow is black… right? This is why we look for pieces that require minimal effort when it comes to pairing. You know, like anything that matches denim. And then there’s the problem of what accessories and footwear to match your outfit with. In times like this, you’ll want to fill your whole wardrobe with UNIQLO‘s Drape collection because they go with just about any accessory and shoes!

We are too lazy to actually wear clothes
The best feeling in the world is walking around the house with only a towel on because actually putting on clothes is akin to manual labour. Which is why we’re super thankful to the creators of UNIQLO’s Drape Collection, which makes dressing up for work less of a chore. The pieces are easy to wear: just slip them on and we’re ready to hit the road – or the office.
Drape Camisole, $29.90; High Waist Drape Wrap Skirt, $39.90.
Bright colours hurt our eyes in the morning
It’s 7am and we’re too tired to deal with life, but we still have to pick an outfit for work because nudity is a criminal offence. As we squint while looking through our wardrobe, the last thing we want is a fiery red top because, ouch, our eyes! Pass us those muted colours! (This is probably why Singaporeans seldom wear bright colours, unless it’s the festive season.)
