In today’s Lunch Break Chats, I caught up with friend and style blogger Henry Ng (Street Style Poser) and got a glimpse of his fashion perspective. For my style profile make sure to visit Henry’s site.

Describe your personal style. Is there a fashion icon you look up to?

Someone described my style as “casual perfection”, which I like that a lot, even though it doesn’t really paint a clear picture. I tend to gravitate towards clothes or items that are unique, quirky or interesting. I like the idea of taking pieces that’s unusual and different and working them into everyday wear.

As for icons, I love Roisin Murphy’s style. She mixes elegance with quirkiness so effortlessly – it helps that she’s stunning but I think her ability to not take herself seriously presents an opportunity to have fun with fashion.

Tell me about this outfit. How did you come up with it?

I had this idea of an Oriental mafia who’s also very sartorial conscious in a modern day sort of way – you know not necessarily rough and tough, but still dark and mysterious, if that makes sense.

What are some of your wardrobe essentials?

I tend to invest in pieces that are unique or interesting that work with several outfits and won’t become out of style. I’m not sure if these pieces are considered essentials per se, but since I’m not a T-shirt and jeans kind of guy, I feel they’re more important to me than a T-shirt or a pair of jeans since you can easily replace them.
