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

Feel sexy and powerful

Published

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.

Sony WH-1000XM4 noise-cancelling king now official

‘The best just got better’

Published

on

The Sony WH-1000XM4 is now official. Sony’s best-in-class noise-cancelling over-ear headphones just got a refresh and the improvements further make shine an already polished device.

What’s new?

Multiple device pairing

This has been one of this headphones’ weaknesses and it has finally been addressed. You can now connect the Sony WH-1000XM4 to two devices simultaneously.

When a call comes in, your headphones will know which device is ringing and connect to it automatically. You’ll also be able to quickly switch your headphones to either of the two devices in a single tap.

Superior sound

Every iteration of these headphones already sound amazing. But that didn’t stop Sony from elevating the listening experience even further.

The ever-reliable QN1 is still here for noise-cancellation but it’s now paired with a new Bluetooth Audio SoC. It can sense and adjust to music and noise at over 700 times per second.

It now also has Edge-AI, DSEE Extreme which more accurately rebuilds audio lost during digital compression for a full fidelity experience. The 360 Reality Audio feature is now also making its way to these headphones. It lets listeners enjoy a custom immersive musical field that is perfectly optimized for each individual user.

The WH-1000XM4 also supports Google’s helpful new Fast Pair feature that lets you easily locate where you left your WH-1000XM4 by ringing them.

Speak-to-chat

Previously, you had to cover one of the ear cups to disable the noise-cancelling for a short period. Now, you only have to speak and the headphones will recognize your voice,

automatically stop your music and let in ambient sound so you can conduct a conversation without removing your headphones.

What’s been carried over?

As mentioned, the superior sound and noise-cancelling are still here but enhanced. The simple and sleek look has also been retained. If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it, right?

The battery life also remains the same which is a good thing. You get up to 30 hours overall and the quick charging function gives you up to 5 hours of wireless playback from 10 minutes of charging.

The headphones also still know if you’re wearing them or not. It stops the music when you have it off and resumes playback when you put them on.

Lastly, it still has support for Google Assistant or Amazon Alexa for your personal voice assistant.

Pricing and availability 

The Sony WH-1000XM4 will come in Black and Platinum Silver.

In Singapore, it will be available at selected retail shops and online stores starting August 7,2020 at a retail price of SG$ 549.
