What’s your favourite style?

Chan Sopheakneth, a 22-year-old student at the Royal University of Law and Economics

“My style as a student is simple, but very popular. I always wear a white or a pink shirt with a black or blue short skirt. ​I need heeled shoes. I like to use a shoulder bag rather than a backpack. And I always tie my hair up and rarely untie or straighten it. I never wear any jewellery. That would be a useless risk. I put some make-up on sometimes, but I don’t want to spend much time on this. My time is dedicated to my studies. My style is not elegant, but suitable and modern.” 

Sim Pilot, an 18-year-old student at the Cambodia Mekong University

“Volleyball and basketball are my favourite sports. I always play with my friends at school. I like wearing sports T-shirts with short pants; my T-shirt and shorts have to be the same colour as the uniform. I always wear Adidas and football T-shirts because it makes me feel like a player in a competition. I think young athletes often do this.”  

Ung Lythor, a 23-year-old student at the University of Puthisastra

“When at a party or a wedding ceremony, I usually wear a dress. The majority of my dresses are short; I like pink and white dresses. They go well with my white skin. High-heeled shoes are essential to enhancing beauty. Make-up is always simple; I don’t like sexy styles. My hair isn’t styled so much; I just straighten it. I like to bring my purse with me to hold my phone. I can say I like a natural style.” 

Chhay Kuychorng, a 22-year-old customer service officer at Canadia Bank

“I wear a jacket with a short skirt every day. I have four  jackets, each a different colour: red, blue, orange and green. In the first and third week of the month, I ​wear the red jacket from Monday to Wednesday and I wear the orange jacket from Thursday to Saturday. The second and fourth week, I wear the blue one from Monday to Wednesday and the green one from Thursday to Saturday. Make-up is essential in a bank’s working environment. For a clean-cut appearance, I always tie my hair up and wear high-heeled shoes only. ” 

Men Nara, 23-year-old student at Norton University

“When I go out, I always wear a pair of jeans and a T-shirt with another shirt. I like to wear sport shoes because they’re really comfortable. I would say that I like modern-style clothes. I never put anything in my hair, because it’s gorgeous. I also love wearing sunglasses. They offer protection from sunlight and make me look handsome. But I always borrow them from friends. Style and sophistication should always be a must.”
