Grab and go The everyday struggle to put together an outfit is a truly first-world problem. But in such instances, you can relax knowing that Hugo Boss has got your back. We're big fans of the brand's latest bags, which although not super trendy, are staples we can rely on when we can't be bothered to think of much else. On our shopping list is the black calf leather Berlin tote (above right; HK$9,400) and the toffee calf leather clutch (above left; HK$5,600). Hugo Boss is at 1 Pedder Street, Central.


Razzle dazzle Let's be honest, saving money in Hong Kong is no easy task. Temptations are everywhere, from the hottest restaurants to the latest it-bags. So, if you've been frugal but a little down without your regular dose of retail therapy, have a look at some bling that won't break the bank from Carat. We're loving the Meduse ring (above right; HK$1,120) and the extravagant Scylla bracelet (above left; HK$1,320). Carat is in IFC Mall, Central.


Creatures of comfort Few things are more attractive than a woman who looks at ease in her own skin. And, it seems, this is the message Ports 1961 is trying to get across with its latest collection. The voluminous trousers and smartly tailored tops ooze a laid-back air while retaining a certain elegance. Our favourites include the multicoloured wool knit dress (HK$9,400) worn over printed wide-leg jeans (HK$3,800; both above left), and the azure blue silk shirt (HK$6,100), with matching belt (HK$900) and wide leg trousers (HK$6,600; all above right). Ports 1961 is at 116 Canton Road, Tsim Sha Tsui.
