Compression sales take off

Forget Spandex. The latest tight-fitting sportswear isn't just a way to decrease drag or show-off a slim physique. More and more athletes are turning to compression garments to boost performance, minimise injuries and reduce recovery time.

DJ turns the tables on style

Before she stumbled upon the music business eight years ago, Wong Yat-tung, better known as DJ Miss Yellow, was a model, beauty pageant contestant and jobbing actress for TVB. To mark her change of career, she chopped off her signature long hair, traded it for an edgy Chelsea cut and bleached it blond.

I've heard compression tights are a good thing, but don't know if I can face the humiliation. How am I supposed to wear them in public?

Look cool this winter

With a change in seasons to cooler weather, it is time to wrap up with equally cool looks straight from the catwalk. Falling temperatures mean the return of layers, whether it's a chunky knit over a floaty dress or structured blazer over jeans and a T-shirt.

Maxing it up with brooches in full bloom

Nothing says 'maximalism' better than oversized pink and red fabric flower brooches - OK, maybe neon tights or pink highlights. But it looks like understated is overrated in the coming season.

I have a foot problem. My work socks look much the same, with minor differences that I only notice once I've dressed quickly and am already out the door. Plus, my laundry area isn't very brightly lit so putting together matching pairs is hard to begin with.

Songstress takes some time out to put on the style

With her biggest concert to date coming up in January, it's unlikely that Kary Ng Yu-fei will have time for a Christmas holiday getaway. The Canto-pop sensation nevertheless took time out to help launch the latest resort collection of Australian fashion brand Sass & Bide.

On style, she rules

I saw a Chanel bag in crochet that I absolutely adored but I couldn't justify that much money on a summer bag. I was thinking of using the crochet theme for a less expensive dress that I could wear forever. Any thoughts?
