How to wear pink: 4 ways to look chic and grown-up

Feel sexy and powerful

As grownups wearing pink can be tricky lest we end up looking like a Disney princess or Barbie. When dressing up for a town hall, for example, we rarely turn to this color when we want to be taken seriously. In these cases, our instincts tell us to stick to dark neutrals, but here are some of the ways you can work this radiant color into your adult life and still look chic and grown-up.

Tip #1: Accessorize

If you’re averse to wearing pink, you can ease it in with accessories first. Add a jolt of color to your otherwise drab wardrobe with a pair of statement earrings or even a smartphone with a color shifting glass back like the OPPO Reno in Sunset Rose.

Tip #2: Stick to lighter tones

I know, I know. Millennial pink is so 2016; but let’s be real, this cheery hue will never really go out of style. It’s like an old fling who always finds a way to creep up into your life and is somehow always able to put a smile on your face. That’s exactly what a helping of blush pink can do when say, you’re feeling unmotivated to do your work out. A smartwatch like the Samsung Galaxy Watch Active in Rose Gold can just be the push you need to do your squats.

Tip #3: Wear classic silhouettes

Pink is not just a color for girls, but over the years we’ve come to associate it with femininity. If you’re feeling bold, wear a pink blazer or coat or to feel sexy a silk slip dress will do the trick! It’s one of those colors that will make you feel powerful and dainty at the same time.

Tip #4: Wear it on your face

This is probably something you already do. If not, find a lipstick or blush that suits your skin tone STAT. It’s especially useful when you just want to look polished without overdoing it.

Bonus: Use copper accents at home

Incorporating pink into our lives doesn’t need to stop at the things we wear. Pots or light fixtures in copper tones can actually make the home look more expensive. If you’re sporting an all-white bedroom, add a little bit of pizzazz by putting a copper lamp beside your bed.

Wearing pink to look more mature has less to do with a certain shade, but finding ones that work best with your skin tone and how you actually style them. Even as a full-grown adult, you can pull off an all-pink ensemble and still exude the same confidence you would when wearing red or black.

Apple is launching new Powerbeats with the iPhone 9, leak says

According to new FCC entry

Published

on

In modern times, smartphone launches usually come out with a flurry of complementary accessories, particularly earpieces. Take note of the Huawei Freebuds or the Galaxy Buds, which both released concurrently (or in proximity) with respective smartphones. As you might expect, today’s latest surge of complementary ear gear originates from Apple, the owner of Beats and maker of AirPods.

As of late, Apple has jumpstarted a wave of new earphone and headphone rumors. For the first, we were expecting a midrange set of AirPods Pro coming later this year. Another leak spoke about an even more premium variant, potentially introducing the series to the headphone segment.

Today, a new leak has revealed an upcoming expansion of Apple’s Beats catalog. According to a revently revealed FCC entry, Apple is working on a set of earphones codenamed “A2015.” To the keen observer, the blueprinted set looks like the Powerbeats 3, a set currently available right now. Very likely, the upcoming earphones will come out as the Powerbeats 4.

Much like the incumbent entry, the Powerbeats 4 is slightly wired, likely connecting both buds without an input/output port. As expected, the FCC entry confirms Bluetooth LE support.

Unfortunately, the entry doesn’t reveal any more information about the upcoming product. However, it will probably launch soon. An FCC entry signals a product further along the development cycle. Given the timing, the Powerbeats 4 can go hand-in-hand with the iPhone 9 coming in March.

Apple is likely working on a midrange AirPods Pro

Coming mid-2020

Have you bought into the wireless earbuds trend? Despite performing at a lesser capacity than wired earphones, wireless earbuds have infiltrated every major player in the tech industry. Currently, Apple, Huawei, and Samsung all sell their own variant of the growing market.

Now, Apple looks to expand their own catalog even further. According to Chinese publication Digitimes, the AirPods maker is developing a budget-friendly version of last year’s AirPods Pro — the AirPods Pro Lite.

Supposedly, Universal Scientific Industrial (USI), a Taiwan-based manufacturer will likely acquire orders from Apple for the upcoming device. The Taiwanese company is working with other manufacturers from China and the US to fulfill the orders.

According to the report, the AirPods Pro Lite will arrive sometime in the middle of the year. However, given the current situation in China, the device’s development might run into a few delays, especially if Apple pursues China-based manufacturers.

Because of the name, the AirPods Pro Lite will likely carry a price tag between the regular AirPods and the premium AirPods Pro. That puts it around US$ 199.

Despite being an accessory, the AirPods lineup is still one of Apple’s most successful products in the current generation. Of course, it helps that the audio accessory almost comes as a requirement for iPhone users.

Sony’s WF-H800 h.ear in TWS headphones offer rich sound

Available in five colors

Published

on

Already a leader in noise-cancelling headphones, Sony is offering something a little different in the true wireless headpones department — the Sony WF-H800 h.ear in headphones.

One of the first easily noticeable things is how the WF-H800 is available in five colors: red, orange, green, blue, and black.

Noticeably missing is the active noise-cancellation feature. However, it makes up for it with other Sony staple-features, primarily the 360 reality audio. The effect of which can only be truly felt once you experience it for yourself.

It also has a 6mm dynamic driver to deliver a wide range of audio frequencies as well as a feature Sony calls DSEE HX or Digital Sound Enhancement Engine. This tech restores the high-range sound that’s lost in compression. It reproduces digital music files with rich, natural sound.

It’s also lightweight and designed to fit your ears perfectly. The WF-H800 promises up to eight hours of music playback plus another eight hours with the carrying case giving you a total of 16 hours. Additionally, 10 minutes of charge time will give you up to 70 minutes of listening time.

Just like other Sony headphones, these are compatible with both Google Assistant and Amazon’s Alexa.

Price and availability

The Sony WF-H800 will be available at selected Sony Stores, Sony Centers, Sony authorized dealers and the official Sony store on Lazada from March 2020. It will retail for SG$ 299.
