Shorts circuit

With temperatures rising, it's hard for women to look stylish and stay cool. Fortunately, designers have found the answer in the humble pair of shorts, which is given a chic update this season. A summer essential, shorts come in many styles ranging from more formal, tailored Bermudas to short modern takes by Australian brand Ellery.

Breaking the macho mould

Men fight stereotypes every day. They like cars, sports, food, perhaps the outdoors, and if not, then at the very least the birds and the bees. And, while it is okay in some circles for a man to get waxed and burn candles, it is still hard for him to experiment with jewellery beyond cufflinks, a watch and a ring, without some reservation as to how he will be perceived.

Danger Lurks amid bling of nickel jewels

Buyers of inexpensive but shiny jewellery beware: it is likely to contain a metal that, while almost unregulated and requiring no labelling, can cause serious skin problems.

Dandy & Dapper

I'm looking for simple, huggie-style earrings for men. Everything I find in the jewellery stores in Hong Kong has been designed for the fairer sex, with far too much bling. By the way, I hate shopping and having to enter more than three stores in a week feels like a life sentence. I hope you can help.
