What is something essential for men outfit? The answer should be BLACK. Every man should have at least a pair of black outfit in their wardrobe. It has become men’s nature since hundreds years ago. Black is associated to power, strength, mystery, fear, elegance, authority, death, rebellion, and magic.

Black is one of my favorite colors beside of brown and grey. For me, black is neutral. Associated with outfit, something black can be easy to be paired with others colors. You can match it with white for monochromatic theme, with purple and red for elegance theme, with brown and green for calm theme, and other combinations. And one thing that cannot be missed is the black on black which means using outfit with all black colors. A man that wearing this theme will be looked more gentle, strong, and of course mysterious.

Why Black?
Some people may choose certain colors to be their outfit, especially top wear. They will match their dress with their skin colors. Some people worry that using a wrong colors will make them not shine or fatten their look. Do you think black will do the same thing? NO!

I speak to loud, sorry. Haha. As I said before, black is neutral. Instead of making you gloomy, black will shine your aura. Make sense right? Black is a dark color, so is there any of you have darker skin that black? The answer is definitely not. That’s why black is suitable to wore for all people for any skin colors.

Black also will make you look slimmer. A deep black will trick our eyes into thinking it’s closer and smaller. Yes it is a kind of an optical illusion. It caused a lower contrast to your background. So, it will reduce the lighting cues and less expose the wrinkles or your contours. It is why women are used to wear black dress. Because black can make you seem a little thinner or slimmer. Want to try this? :D

Can men express himself more with black outfit?
Men must be envy with women who have so (1000x) many options for their clothes. Also with cheaper price than men items. In the same store, women’s item can be started with IDR 125,000 for a beautiful top wear or bottom wear, but for men, we have to spend minimum IDR 150,000 only for basic t-shirt with super thin fabrics and bury all hopes if we want a bottom wear with those price. Ehm, except underwear.

But don’t worry, we still can express ourselves with black outfit. A creativity and a good sense are the key. I will give you some inspiration outfit with black. Let’s check this one out!

How was your day guys? I smell a long weekend will come soon this week (only if you take an annual leave in this Friday). Haha. Yes one day off for four days holiday.

This time I will review this stand up collar shirt from VIP Plaza Indonesia. Why is called stand up collar?

Stand up collar shirt

As you can see in the picture, this collar is different with usual shirt which have folded collar. Stand up collar may be rarely heard by us, but it is actually not different with Mandarin/Shanghai collar. Harking back to hundreds years ago, this style is still vogue and even modern man in this era still use this collar style for their attire. Shirt with stand up collar will give your look more fresh and sharp your face image.

When do we wear this shirt type? 
Stand up collar shirt can be wore for your daily casual style. Like me, I match this shirt with ripped jeans and a sneaker. And I really like this style. You also can mix and match this shirt type with chino, wool trousers, Bermuda pants, cropped trousers, or relaxed pants.

Combine with Relaxed Short Pants

A simple outfit from a perfect combination of your stand up collar shirt with a relaxed short pants. Avoid matching your motives shirt with motives pants, it will make your outfit is too much. If you want to wear pants with motives, wear your plain shirt. How about the shoes? You can use slip on, sneakers, or vans for your footwear.

Combine with Cropped Trousers

When I went to a shopping center, I saw a man with white stand up collar shirt combined with wool-cropped trousers, yes looks like a man in this picture. His style is really standout. Wearing cropped trousers is one way to give a chance for your footwear to shine. One input for you about how to wear cropped pants, if you’ll be pairing them with a formal shoe, don’t crop your trousers too high. You can crop it slightly above your ankle. But on the other hand, if you’ll be wearing them casually, you can cut it higher to give space for your sneakers or boots.

Combine with Relaxed Trousers

Tired of your skinnies jeans? Perhaps you have to try this type of trousers. Since the early of 2017, relaxed trousers has become men’s favorite bottom wear again. Not only perfect combined with t-shirt, it can be perfectly matched with your stand up collar shirt indeed. Look at this picture, the man choose calm color for his outfit and completed with slip on shoes. This outfit will really comfort you in your activities a whole day.

There are so many options and different looks you can find out there, but the real vogue is something you put on your body that is fit on you and make you feel comfortable. Keep on reading RilyfeID to get input and inspiration for your men outfit.

Rizky Ardinsyah, Tusi Saricang, and Guntur Prayogo had their short trip in Bukit Geulis, Rainbow Hills, Sentul.

We do not need a reason to be a friend, because a fake laugh doesn’t need a reason to be captured. LOL

This weekend I have a random day with these guys. After woke up in the time when sun is 750 above my head, they asked me whether want to join them or not. I remember that I also need doing a photoshoot for a product, so I decided to join them. Meet up in Koi, Botani Square. Then we ended up in Sentul without any planning. Hahaha.

For some minutes, my friend helped me to take a photo of me in a housing which is actually still being built. I think we wouldn't get the permission, but fortunately the workers at there let the house to be my spot for photoshoot. Thank you Pak for your kindness. Hope you’re always blessed with healthy and prosperous. :D

On the way to another photo spot, we found a sign to Rainbow Hills. I said that in Instagram, I saw many people tagged Rainbow Hills which has a great place. It has a tree house like in Kalibiru Yogyakarta. So, without any planning, without anyone of us who ever go to that place, we were heading to Rainbow Hills.

How to get there?

This is the hard one. There's no public transportation you can take to this place. From central of Bogor city maybe you can take Pakuan Bus to get Sentul. After that there is no transportation that will take you to this place, I do not know about online car whether they can take you to here or not. So I recommend you to bring your personal car or personal motorcycle. If it is not possible for you because you are from out of Bogor, you can rent a car in Bogor/Jakarta, and drive by yourself to Sentul. Just follow Google Maps.

If you search Rainbow Hills Sentul, maybe you will direct to Rainbow Hills area only. So you have to search it specifically, the place name is actually Bukit Geulis. We also just knew after several times lost. Haha. From Masjid Andalusia Sentul, it is about 12km to reach Rainbow Hills Golf. Firstly, you will enter a gate (like housing gate) and meet a security. If he asks you, you can say that you want to go to Bukit Geulis. He can give you a direction to there. It is about 1-1.5km from the gate.

But if you didn't find Bukit Geulis, just search Rainbow Hills. And then, you can ask people around there how to get to Bukit Geulis. Like us. Hahaha.

You will pass some bamboo little house which actually it is a shop that sell Indomie and coffee. The view is nice, because it overlooks the cliffs. You can take a rest for some minutes at there while eating Indomie or coffee, or keep continue to Bukit Geulis.

Bukit Geulis Sign

You will find a colorful sign “BUKIT GEULIS” in the right side, and you also see some motorcycles parked at there. Yeay I finally arrived! In here, you will also find some bamboo shops, but here, more crowded. With Dangdut music live!

How much the entry fee?

You won’t be charged for entry fee. Freee! When you enter the place, you will see many people at there, taking a photo or just chit-chat each other while looking to the cliffs and hills. Green is everywhere! Beautiful!

But for some photo spots, you need to pay for maintenance fee. IDR 10,000 for taking photo in tree house and IDR 5,000 for taking photo in love sign (I don’t take a photo in here so I’m sorry I couldn’t give you a picture). However, it is much cheaper than taking photo in Kalibiru. My friend said you need to pay IDR 50,000 if you want to take a photo in a tree house, and also you have to pay the photographer. But in Bukit Geulis, you really need to pay only IDR 10,000. You can take a picture with your professional camera or smartphone, it is up to you. You also can ask for help to the guard at there to take your pictures. They are kind. So you can take many pictures. But however, do not take too long in the tree house, because many people are also waiting for their turn. Hehe. But, if there is no long queue, you can ask the guard to take a photo again.

Ok, that is my short escape for my weekend. I hope this place can be listed for your short trip too. Have a nice weekend!

Autumn or known also as fall, is an intervening period of the warmest time and the coldest time. Its scene associated with yellow, orange, and red leaves on trees and fallen on ground, skies turn grey.

Halo RilyfeID readers! September comes back again! People always says that this is a joyful month, remember the song of Vina Panduwinata? Yes! "September Ceria". Find out on google or YouTube if you never hear this song, I’m sure you will love that.

September is also known as the beginning time of autumn for countries in Northern Hemisphere, while in East Asian, autumn mostly has been started since last month. Autumn is a season of transitioning period from summer to winter which also means the transitioning period of the warmest time and the coldest time. As daytime and nighttime temperature decrease, trees shed their leaves. Skies then turn grey.

Inspired by this atmosphere, warmth colors like orange, red, yellow, green, and brown are chosen as the most favorite color for people outfits. This is also can be an inspiration for your wedding decoration color. You can choose cream or peach for light and fresh atmosphere, or maroon and gold for strong and elegant atmosphere. In Indonesia, September is the transitioning of summer season and rainy season. Outdoor wedding is still possible to be realized with playful color like peach, white, camel, and gold.

In this time, RilyfeID will share you some outfits that inspired by autumn/fall season, while we know that in this country, Indonesia, we never experience autumn. Hehe.

This outfit is a simple combination of stripes t-shirt and short pants paired up with derby shoes and stripes socks. This stripes sock is one of my favorite because so playful. You can also wear a caramel beanie for playful look and sunglasses to protect your eyes from sun.

Keeping warm and comfortable in autumn is sometimes need both for daytime or nighttime. That is why I also provide you some inspirational attire that keeps you warm with playful color as seen in the picture below.

In the first picture, we recommend to pair up a red knit sweater with long jeans and bright sneakers. Do not forget to wear sunglasses if you want manlier look. This outfit is the best way to hit your warm weekend.

In the second picture, a jacket is the main role for this outfit. Denim pants and a boot will perfectly make your look cooler and manlier. A beanie and sunglasses also can be wear for your accessories.

In the third picture, you will find simpler outfit. Take your thick green knit sweater from your wardrobe, then pair up with linen trousers, corduroy, or jeans and sneakers. Wear beanie that match your knit sweater or trousers for playful look.

In the fourth picture, you can wear a playful color for your trousers and pair up with double layered top, one plain shirt and one squares shirt. For manlier look, you can wear all types of sneakers, either classic, chunky, or bright one. I think contrast color for your sneakers with your shirt is the best way to impress people.

A suit will always be men essential go-to. That’s why every man should have a suit hanging in their wardrobe. It can not only be paired with a shirt, but also with a t-shirt. Choose a t-shirt that blend with your suit color, it must be perfect too. In this photo, I choose a stripes light brown t-shirt that match my brown suit. Then I wear brown stripes sock and black derby shoes. Yes, head to toe is inspired by earth tone.

I collect some photos from Pinterest and other sources that can be your inspiration about how to look neat with autumn vibes in the below collection:
