For casual cool, Guess is consistently on trend and cost effective. Get the relaxed vibe of the check shirts (top; HK$590 each), available in blue or green, or a pair of its beach-friendly striped shorts (above; HK$790 each). Guess is at 2 Kingston Street, Causeway Bay, tel: 3422 8568.
To put a little spring in your step, head to Lancel, where the brand's latest accessories collection has just the right dose of colour. The Apollon briefcase (right; HK$10,250) is made from full-grained leather and is available in black, mocha and blue, or there's the Grand Hotel suitcase (far right; HK$7,790) made of drummed Andean leather in white. Lancel is in Ocean Centre, Harbour City, Tsim Sha Tsui, tel: 2377 0787.
Wrap it up
There's still a slight nip in the air, so if you want to hit the streets with a dash of flair, grab this printed John Galliano scarf (right; HK$2,650). John Galliano is in Times Square, Causeway Bay, tel: 2151 0822.
Show your stripes
Brooks Brothers may be most known for impeccable suits but the label's casual attire also demands attention. We are fans of the cotton stripe waistcoat (HK$2,350) worn with the tartan zip jacket (HK$7,950). The jockey stripe patch pocket jacket (HK$11,800) might be overkill, but it's a great standalone piece. To get noticed, match them all with the seersucker striped trousers (HK$2,950) and the Mackintosh duffel bag (all left; HK$6,500). The nautical vibe of the striped polo jumper (HK$3,500), paired with seersucker striped trousers (HK$2,950), cricket trainers (HK$3,250) and canvas tote bag (all far left; HK$1,500), is another great option. Brooks Brothers is in Prince's Building, Central, tel: 2523 3366.
