Styling 101: Travel & Dress like a Local

Posted by on

As we approach our favourite travel season this May, there’s hardly a one-size-fits-all approach when it comes to travelling. Some travellers shuffle from one tourist hotspot to another with relish, while others prefer an experience that’s closer to the ground.

Prefer to hang out with the natives rather than be led through another maze of tourist traps? We'll show you how to blend in like a local.

JAM WITH STREET MUSICIANS IN FLORENCE

If you're feeling the beat, rub shoulders with adventurous guitar players, talented improvisers, brave rockers armed with kitchen supplies and people who bring their music out into the streets. Add your magic to Florence's already artsy urban landscape.

Ace the relaxed yet fashionably artistic look with cotton or linen suits in neutral shades and pair them with accessories that show your individual element or quirk. A large sports watch is a must have investment, the one thing Italians love to wear.

CYCLE ON THE STREETS OF PARIS 

Think like a Parisian and you’ll do well here: Start rides at your local bistro, race out the Paris Basin into the calm and charming countryside, stop at boulangeries as needed, then go straight home and resume your day, as if this exceptional cycling city is completely normal.

The Parisian male loves to layer. This look contributes to the general Parisian fashion preference for looking as if you’re too cool to fuss over an outfit. Complete it with the signature European looped scarf and classicaccessories.

URBAN EXPLORING IN BERLIN

Photographers, graffiti-artists and the plain curious are all drawn to Berlin's many abandoned and ruined places like the Spreepark, or former Nazi military areas. Venture into unchartered territory to discover brand new experiences.

Urban Exploration in Berlin


Berlin and grunge go rebelliously hand-in-hand, retaining some of the reckless flavour of the Eighties. Today, the next generation flaunt their freedom with grungy street wear looks in mostly black, giving rise to the modern bad boy look.

The first month of 2015 flew by so fast and Valentine’s Day is right around the corner! That also means it's time for all those with significant others to start thinking about how to make February 14th extra special for him and her. It's kind of hard to buy gifts for men, because soft toys and flowers simply don't cut it. Fret not, this year The Little Link has helped you to shortlist some gift ideas that will be bound to put a grin on his face!

  1. Drones

Drones made a splash last year with sales figures hitting a record high, and their popularity will continue to trend upwards in 2015, as prices gets more competitive with more players flocking into the market. Consumer drones are small, flying helicopters, usually equipped with cameras. Their sizes can range from palm sized to basketball sized, and can cost anywhere between $50 to a couple thousand dollars. These flying gadgets can be controlled by handheld controllers, or even from your smartphones, and can even roam the skies up to 120 meters high, providing unique perspectives like never before. All techy guys will love having a drone this year!

  1. Cufflinks

Surprise your well-dressed man with a new pair of cufflinks this Valentine's Day. Why cufflinks? They are essential daily accessories that add sparkles on his business shirt. Moreover, imagine how he will be reminded of you when he glances at them during an important business meeting or formal event. If he has surprised you with jewelry in the past, it's a no brainer to return the favor with a thoughtful gift for him. 

We recommend romantic themed designs such as Love Links, Love of Infinity or Interlocked cufflinks.

Who says Bluetooth speakers have to be boring? Jambox bucks the trend with its bold color, big sound, portable design and two sizes to choose from. To blast your favorite tunes, simply connect to smartphones, tablets or laptops over Bluetooth. Its lithium-ion battery can play music up to 10 hours, and offers a whooping 75-hour standby time. We think it hits all the right notes.

  1. Mechanical Watch

While ladies tend to fawn over the exteriors of watches, men are often charmed by the intricacies in mechanical watches. Mechanical watches are not built digitally like Quartz watches, but are often painstakingly assembled by professional watchmakers, which also explain why their price tags are in a different universe from their Quartz counterparts. If you are planning to get one, do opt for the open-heart designs, where the inner clockwork of the timepiece is showcased.

For affordable mechanical watches, check out Arbutus watches.

Price range: ($280 - $800)
