STYLE UPGRADES FOR THE NEW YEAR

For years the default male wardrobe offered by retail stores hasn’t been particularly colourful. It focused heavily on variations of blue and white for shirts; navy blue and charcoal gray for suits. Experimenting with color hasn’t necessarily been a man’s forte, well until now. From vibrant red shoes to Chris Martin’s tie-dye, 2017 has seen it all. Look dapper and up your style for the coming year using our tips.

CHINOS
Chinos are a must-have item for the modern man. A smarter alternative to jeans, chinos can be worn all year round; from navy and wine to stone, tobacco and air-force blue. Tailored or slim fit, this style of trouser can be dressed up or dressed down depending on the occasion. Team them with a casual shirt for the day or a smart jacket for the evening. Whether paired with formal wear or casual wear, chinos are the perfect wardrobe addition to take you effortlessly from day to night.

SHOES
Shoes are more than just something to cover your feet. They are one of the biggest style statements; if your shoes don’t match your outfit it’s a big no-no.
It can be quite difficult to style your pair of funky, bought on impulse shoes and colourful socks with your formal wear, well 2018 has only one thing to say to that- ‘Go for it!’. Shoes can turn your entire normal outfit to a bold one, that makes people look at it twice. Fashion, in the end, is not about what blogs tell you, but about what you like, and what you can pull-off.

RIPPED JEANS
Ripped jeans are very versatile and you can style them in no time as they’re functional, easy to wear and can add a bit of personality to your look.

Here are some styles to make you look more put together.

Street Style
It’s a really simple look, you can’t really go wrong with this one. Just put on a flannel over your old tee and you’re good to go.

Smart Casuals
Smart Casuals are slowly becoming the in thing for young men to incorporate into their lifestyle. A simple waistcoat, with a simple tee, and perhaps a scarf instead of a coat will give you a relaxed look for an evening stroll or perhaps for a casual dinner. Ripped jeans for a smart casual attire is very rare but not completely unheard of. So just go for it.

These styles are something that we definitely look forward in 2018, but in the end, wear your confidence first, and everything else will look amazing. There’s nothing worse than not being happy with what you have on. Push yourself, experiment, but also, always remember that, what makes everyone take a look twice is your smile.

Choosing The Perfect Outfit This Party Season

Who doesn’t like the month of December? With the year ending and the many parties to attend, and with this comes the question ‘What should I wear?’ Putting together a perfect outfit for each party can be a little taxing as everyone wants to look their best. To make sure that you look your finest this festive season, we have put together a guide that will help you decide your attire according to each occasion.  

The Black Tie Event

A classic well-tailored tux is the best attire you can wear to such events. When dressing for a Black Tie event, make sure that your black three-piece tux is well fitted. A bulky suit or a very loose one will spoil the entire ensemble. Your white shirt can either be a single pleat or a double pleat. You can always experiment with your bow tie, but the most worn colour is black. Wearing a cummerband is optional if you are not wearing a waistcoat. Do keep in mind that your cummerband should match the colour of your bowtie. Complete your look with an elegant white pocket square and cufflinks. Lastly, no look is complete without well-polished shoes. A black leather pair will do the trick in this case. Make sure you are well-groomed when wearing this attire. If you are not comfortable going clean shaven, then make sure that your beard is trimmed well.

The Office Party

Your office party attire will depend on the dress code of the party. For a less formal look try pairing your light t-shirts or sweaters with your formal trousers and a smart jacket. Make sure your t-shirts complement the jacket. You can always accessorize your jacket with a simple pocket square. To add more elegance to this look, make sure your formal shoes are well polished.

Casual Get-Togethers

You can loosen the reins for this outfit. A plain shirt paired with casual trousers will do the trick. You can add a quirky bow tie or even suspenders to enhance your look. Since winter is here, layered clothing is back in trend. Try pairing a navy blue sweater with your white oxford shirt and a smart charcoal grey blazer over it. So even if it gets a little warm you can always remove the above layers and still have a complete independent outfit.

The most important thing to remember is that you should be comfortable in whatever you wear. Do make sure that you are well groomed and that your hair is styled and beard trimmed accordingly, to match the look. You can always accessorize your looks with a well-matched belt and proper shoes.

Essential Indian wedding Accessories

The wedding season has already started and there is nothing better than a Big Fat Indian wedding to attend. With all these festivities the one thing that is most important is your clothing. You can look dapper and go the extra mile with your ensemble by adding a few accessories. Here are some tips that will help you to accessorize your wardrobe with the coming festivities.

Modi Jackets

The Modi jacket is a hip-length tailored coat with a mandarin collar worn by men. The best part of the Modi jacket is its versatility; it can be worn to a formal or a casual event. A Modi jacket adds grace to your Indian attire so make sure that you make it a part of your wedding look. You can pair your jacket with either jodhpuri pants or classic dhotis and pyjamas for an ethnic look.

Mojris

Mojris are the perfect match for your Indian attire. You can opt for a patterned design that complements your traditional look. Use a thin cloth or thin brush to remove the dirt off your shoes and let it dry in the sun. When storing your mojris, wrap each shoe in muslin cloth, the cloth will let the material breathe and will retain the shine of the shoes. You can also try pairing your Indian footwear with jeans and a kurta for a more relaxed look when attending a sangeet or mehendi ceremony.

 

Pocket Squares

Pocket squares gained popularity as a fashion statement in the 1900’s. Made of linen, cotton or silk, a pocket square adds sophistication when neatly folded in the right breast pocket of a sherwani or safari. There are various ways to fold them but make sure you don’t make it look bulky. A clean and simple pocket fold can speak volumes and take your ensemble a step ahead.

 

Brooches

Brooches have the ability to make your suit look interesting. A dull-colored suit canbe made more interesting if you attach a simple silver brooch or brooch chain on it. If your suit has intricate designs embroidered on the fabric. Pair a small brooch on your suit to enhance the intricate details around it. You can also wear them on your turban to add a bit of unique style to your outfit.
