Alyaa Zahirah |Malaysia| MSc Civil Engineering Year 4
We can never have too many dresses especially for the ever hot and humid Malaysia. It’s an added advantage when they can be dressed as both casual and office wear. Alyaa decided to dress hers in a more official manner for her presentation this week and paired them with black tights. She describes her style as smart- casual of which she says is inspired by her sister. How can we forget about her versatile bag? This bag has been the trend all over and we can see why – its diversity, from a handbag to a back pack in a moment.

Krishan Kandiah |Malaysia | BSc Finance Accounting and Management Year 1
We came across Krishan at The Library where he looked like he was hard at work. He pulled of this simple yet classic look by pairing the black tailored pants with a white shirt. When asked what he thought was most challenging about dressing officially, he said that the weather often creates a barrier as it limits the selection of outfits. Given that Krishan is very athletic, he prefers a more functional outfit to suit his everyday agendas.

Osama Sadiq Ali|Pakistan | BSc Finance Accounting and Management Year 1
In recent years, the rules of what to wear in the office have enjoyed a major shakeup with influence from the likes of Mark Zuckerberg and Buzzfeed Inc. However, for his presentation yesterday, Osama decided to stick with the classics. He paired his navy slim fit pants and black jacket with a stripped blue shirt. To get a bit more of a relaxed look, while still maintaining the sharpness that is garnered from a suit, he opted to not wear a tie and add on a pair of loafers. According to Osama, dressing sharp makes him more confident but he still puts comfort over everything.
