How to wear nude: The perfect summer to fall transition

Look chic this transitional season with a color you most probably have in your closet

Published

on

The combination of cool breeze and sunny skies can only mean one thing: summer isn’t completely over but autumn is almost here. Dressing during this transitional season can be tricky — sweaters and boots can still be too warm during the day, yet the wind can easily blow your favorite summer dress up.

And then there’s color. Summer whites and bright colors have to slowly start taking a back seat to give way to fall’s earthy tones. My go-to during this summer-to-fall transition is a closet staple all of us should already own: nude. All 50 shades of it. Here are some styling tricks you can take note of before heading out this month of September:

Layer with linens

There are very few things more comfortable than linen during the summer. On days when temperatures fluctuate more than usual, wearing layers with a linen piece can be your go-to. Combine it with something warmer like a cotton sweater. You can also throw a blazer on top if the weather permits.

Slip into a slip dress

Who says you need to give your slip dresses a break this season? You can keep wearing those silk pieces as you transition into fall with a warm turtle neck sweater underneath or over it to turn it into a skirt.

Keep calm and carry the mini bag

Mini bags may be the it accessory this summer, but it doesn’t mean you have to wait until next year to keep using them. Neutrals like nude will work with your outfit when styled appropriately for the season, even when the item is no longer trendy.

Power dress with an extra long coat

Sweating underneath a powerful outfit is neither attractive nor commanding. Power dressing when it’s hot and humid out is not easy, especially when getting to work involves a lot of walking or subway rides. During this summer-to-fall transition, you can bring that light-colored coat from spring and wear it over your work outfit when needed. Plus points if your smartphone (or its case) doesn’t ruin the look, but actually matches with it. Thankfully my Almond OnePlus 7 Pro does.

There are many other ways to survive the summer-to-fall transition as stylishly as possible, but there’s nothing like sticking to pieces you most probably already have in your wardrobe — and styling them for the season — instead of buying more pieces that you won’t be able to wear until next year. There is, for sure, something nude in your closet that’s begging to be worn. It’s a staple that works with almost anything, may it be summer or fall.

LG Tone+ Free wireless earbuds launched in South Korea

LG joins the wireless earbuds party

Published

Most companies today are throwing their weight behind wireless earbuds. They are compact and versatile for everyday listening needs of the average user. Not to be left behind, LG has launched a new pair of wireless earbuds: the LG Tone+ Free.

LG opted for a compact design that resembles the Samsung Galaxy Earbuds instead of the Apple Airpods. The design also ensures a secure fit so users can wear it for hours.

What differentiates it from the current crop of wireless earbuds is its charging case. It’s equipped with UVNano function that uses ultraviolet rays to kill harmful components, keeping the earbuds clean and sanitized after every use.

LG Tone+ Free

LG partnered with Meridian Audio to provide the earbuds with rich bass, clear mid and high sounds, and three-dimensional sound to its wireless earbuds. The earbuds’ signal processing technology also reduces digital noise, minimizing distortion while listening.

LG also equipped the earbuds with voice and noise-cancelling microphones that works in tandem to ensure clearer call quality. Both earbuds have touchpads that enable various functions such as call, play, or pause music. Holding the touchpad summons the Assistant app.

Sweat and rain is not an issue with the earbuds since it has IPX4 waterproofing certification.

Fully charging the earbuds lets users listen to music for six hours. Since it supports fast charging, users can listen to music for up to one hour with just five minutes of charging.

Pricing and availability

LG Tone+ Free is available in two colors, black and white. They will be available in South Korea this October for KRW 259,999 (US$ 215). Global availability is yet to be announced.
