Polo Ralph Lauren

Hello, everyone! 

It's been quite weird with UK weather recently. It's supposed to be summer but, the weather could pass off as late autumn or early winter. Irregardless of that, it's time to show summer clothing. I'm back earlier this week for a very special post because I'm very excited to present you guys one of my ultimate favourite brands – Ralph Lauren.

But, before we get to the nitty gritty, I'm very grateful because my other fellow group members from S4F agreed to showcase and be featured for this post! So, a big thank you to Amin, Hirzie and Mustaqim for helping me out.
Three Ralph Lauren Big Pony Polo and A Dual Match Pony Polo.

One of the primary reasons for my love for Polo Ralph Lauren is their vibrant colours and each colour gives an entirely different look. I have carefully selected two colours that I own, purple and blue and combining it with white and orange that both Amin and Mustaqim owns, because of their bright colours, which is perfect for summer. I am also a huge fan of their big pony and dual match polo because it somehow makes it more distinct and their colours complement the colour of the polo shirts.

White, Purple, Blue and Orange.
I'll begin with the White and Purple Polo. It'll be shown by myself and Amin Nordin. Amin has photographed me before, if you guys have seen my "Elf" and "The Snow Prince" posts, it was done by him! So, it's quite cool for us to be in the same photos together, rather than Amin being behind the camera.

Purple & White

The White Polo

Once I found out Amin got the white polo, right off the bat, I knew it must be a monochromatic outfit. Although white polo goes with anything but I personally think if you add it with a light grey chinos, it will produce such a classic look. It's a good outfit for those who are not fond of bright colours. It is also accessorised with a white belt from Penguin and white shoes from Burberry (it was featured from the double trouble post). An alternative look would be with black coloured trousers to follow the black pony logo. Overall, as the colours are neutral, it is an outfit that will most likely be approved by most, if not everybody.

Polo Ralph Lauren: White
Belt: Penguin
Chinos: Topman
Shoes: Burberry

The Purple Polo

As for the purple polo, I've decided to wear my white jeans to go along with it. I was sort reminded of Yahoo inc, where it consisted of having white and purple in their logo. By wearing white jeans, brown or tanned belt is the only colour that would fit with the whole outfit. As for the shoes, it's an off white coloured plimsoll which was featured before in "Elf" and "The Magic of Coloured Pants." Overall, it gives a calm look.

I actually have different colours in mind to go with the purple polo initially. It definitely goes well with yellow coloured pants, but with that, you have to displace the tanned belt with a white belt, it would produce another look. Another one, if you are up for a bolder look, a green coloured pants can provide this. 

Polo Ralph Lauren: Purple
Belt: ASOS
Jeans: ASOS
Shoes: Lacoste

Second, the orange and blue polo. Both are bright colours that complement one another. It's showcased by Hirzie and Mustaqim. Hirzie was featured previously in the "Double Trouble" post, so it's nice to have him back. On the other side, it's Mustaqim's first time! There's always a first for everything right? 

Burnt Orange & Cobalt Blue

The Blue Polo

Interestingly, the blue polo was supposed to be worn by myself with the white jeans! But, in the end I decided to produce another calm look where it consists of blue and black. We all know that blue and black just complements one another very well. I've also added the skinny white belt to make the outfit pop even more, subsequently, white shoes were chosen too. Definitely good for guys who find light coloured pants a bit weird to wear. 

A much more casual look can be worn with shorts, I think a lot of colours can go well with it, ranging from yellow to green. But, I personally would go with white or black, and I think pink will look nice too. 

Polo Ralph Lauren: Blue
Belt: ASOS
Trousers: Zara
Shoes: Ralph Lauren

The Orange Polo

Last but not least, the burning orange polo. It's the only polo shirt that has a dual match pony logo for this post. It is also the only outfit that the pants follows correspondingly to the colour of the logo. The orange polo with the blue pants was accessorised with a white belt and white shoes. This is the boldest outfit when compared to the rest, so it screams louder than the rest. It's definitely a polarising head-turner outfit to wear. Some will like it, some will dislike it.

Colour Wheel

Blue and Orange are complementary colours. Same case with green and pink, etc. Simple golden rule with the colour wheel, just look at the wheel and rotate the line to each colour, you'll find which colour goes well with one another.

Polo Ralph Lauren: Orange
Belt: ASOS
Trousers: Zara
Shoes: Lacoste


Unless you're wearing white coloured pants, then you would want to avoid wearing a white belt because it would be useless as you can see if you're wearing a belt or not (unless that's the look you're going for). But, I think both white shoes and white belt are universal for coloured outfits. 

A huge thank you to the other three boys for doing this with me!  

Quadraple Trouble

That's all from me this week. Ramadhan is just in two days! I am very excited and nervous because I will be fasting for almost 20 hours in the UK, and for the first time, not spending the whole of Ramadhan in Brunei. 

Possible boy group photo album? Just kidding. 

Here's a cover of "Demons" by Imagine Dragons from the four of us while wearing our outfits featuring the Ralph Lauren Polos.



Stay tuned for Alia, next week! With that, I'll wish you guys "Selamat Berpuasa."

Wearrior Biographies

AINUL

STATUS: ACTIVE

Hello! Welcome to Wearrior Instinct. I'm Ainul! My style is described best as 'mix and match'. Fashion, to me, is a form of self expression. I dress for myself and I love exploring new and different ways to do it. I believe strongly that we all have the potential to be the best we can be; all we have to do is to follow our (Wearrior) Instinct.



MYUIZZU

STATUS: PAUSE

Hey! I'm Mu'izz. I'm currently taking my masters degree in Political Science at UCL. I would probably say that my fashion style is best described as "Good-boy Oxford look" and I love colours. Although, I am preppy for most of the time, I do also like to mix elements from other fashion style. Right now, I am exploring more of the urban style. For me, Fashion is a platform that expresses and embraces one's individuality. Hopefully, it will inspire you to wear your (Wearrior) instinct! – I am on a research leave at the moment, I will be back soon!



ALIA

STATUS: ACTIVE

Hi! I’m Alia Alkaff, a 20-year-old Graphic Design undergraduate at Norwich University of the Arts. Black enthusiast and a lover of all things minimalistic, which also happens to best describe my style of Fashion. With being a part of Wearrior Instinct it has encouraged me greatly to be proud of what I wear and I hope we as a team will have that effect to bring out your inner Wearrior Instinct!



02FEZ

STATUS: HIATUS

My name is Faiz, but most people call me Fez. I studied at the the University of Leeds and graduated in 2015. I currently run a pop-up based coffee business called Aoyama Coffee. My interests in fashion lie more in on streetwear - and bridging the gap between it and menswear. I'm a fan of the little things in labels that set them apart from others, and my taste is a little unconventional, to say the least. I'm also really into raw denim. I should mention that I'm on hiatus at the moment - but I will be back!



AMSAIMZ

STATUS: ACTIVE

Oh hi there! I run a YouTube channel called AMSAIMA, where I create beauty and styling vlogs. I like to think of my fashion sense as multifaceted - I could dress to the nines with textured garments, look quirky while donning a pair of boyfriend jeans, or go for an alternative retro. Wearrior Instinct doesn’t just provide a space for me to document my looks and write about the pieces I’ve put together, but as I’m all about body positivity, I see this as an opportunity where confidence can be both built and encouraged. Lots of love, Amalsaima (or simply, Amal).
