A look at Derrick Wee and one would probably associate him with the word “stylish”. After all, he looks amazing even when donning a CLEO Eligible Bachelor T-shirt and GUESS jeans. This is why he’s deserving of the GUESS-sponsored subsidiary award, Most Stylish Bachelor. We chatted with the 25-year-old to find out more about his sartorial preferences.

How do you feel about being named as the Most Stylish Bachelor?
It’s such an honour. It’s a tough competition this year, all the other bachelors are really good-looking, so this came as a shock to me! This is definitely one of my proudest moments.

Do you consider yourself stylish?
Of course. I was with a modeling agency four years ago and did some modelling work. I’ve always had an interest in fashion and photography, and it became part of my identity. I think styling is very important – you look good, and you’ll automatically feel good. But that said, being stylish is not about the clothes you wear, it’s about how you wear it. You need to have confidence.

Do you think that being a graphic designer helps with your fashion direction?
Yes, because it’s all about aesthetics. What I do in graphic design applies to my fashion style too – I’m meticulous, detail-oriented and there’s some art direction involved. Design and styling are kind of the same thing, really.

How would you describe your style?
Monochromatic. Colour is cool, but it’s not my style. I like to play it cool with basic pieces, nothing too over-the-top. My usual attire is black jeans with a well-fitted scoop neck t-shirt and boots.

Any fashion tips for other guys out there?
You need to find the perfect pair of jeans. It needs to have the right cutting for your legs, and more importantly it needs to show off your butt.
