The Versatile Blue Shirt

Don’t have enough time to change for a party right after work? Has your work wardrobe taken over your closet? Running low on this month’s budget? No worries, we’ve got you covered! All you need is a single blue shirt to pull through. Remember, a standalone shirt never makes an entire outfit; accessories make the look what it is. Blue is known for its versatility and its ability to match most outfits.

Work Blues:

Now, let’s start with the most important part of your day:Work!
How does one rock the plain blue shirt in a formal environment?

Honestly, it’s the easiest to take care of. Pair your blue shirt with a pair of well fitted black, navy blue or even cream colored trousers; it’s the most simple work outfit. You can add a touch of professionalism with a simple brown tie.

But for an important meeting, or to make more of a corporate impression, throw on a blazer that for obvious reasons matches your trousers. If you are reaching for a modern day smart casual look, ditch the tie and swap your formal pants for your favorite black jeans. Throw on a grey or light brown casual jacket.

Wedding Looks:

Got a wedding to attend but are tired of wearing the same attire every single time? There are two ways to incorporate your simple blue shirt into any wedding attire.
For a more high-fashion approach, a three-piece navy blue suit is your best option. If you are looking for a simpler approach roll back your sleeves with ease and rock the suspenders and a bow tie look. Remember, a pair of your cream chinos will work best with this attire.

Casual Party

Unlike weddings, these parties call for comfort and style. Most people think you can’t wear the same shirt for occasions like these. Well, we are here to prove you wrong. Going for drinks after work can be a little dicey especially if you are the only one who looks like he stepped right out from the boardroom. Here’s where your blue shirt will come to the rescue.  

Ditch your tie and throw on a cream blazer. Do make sure you roll up the sleeves to get a more simple and casual look. For a casual dinner date opt for a more simpler look by wear a light grey undershirt with some dark jeans and you’re good to go. Or try pairing a deep blue crew-neck sweater with white or dark blue jeans to effortlessly enjoy your night.

Beach Wear:

Going to spend the day atthe beach or at a resort? You would think that you have overdone this old blue shirt but by adding black or cream shorts and a simple hat you can add a touch of style while keeping the sun at bay. Pair this with Flip Flops or even your favorite shoes, i.e, if you don’t mind them getting filled with sand, to pull off this carefree and relaxed look.This look is super easy to achieve and refreshing to see. You can always unbutton two buttons and show off a dark brown necklace or a simple chain with a pendant. This look also works well with colored chinos.

5 Ways To Reinvent Your Style

2018 is beginning to set in and with it, has come many fashion trends for you to look out for. Be it the bold coloured shoes or the fashion tips on dressing the modern man or the experiments with colours, if there is one thing that we know is that the key to dressing the modern man is to maintain a smart, streamlined look. So here are 5 tips that you could use if you are willing to go the distance and reinvent your style for 2018.

1. Change your Office Wear
Bored of the everyday monotony of the same old formal wear? It is very rare that you would find offices that do not require their employees to follow a dress code. For most men working in the country, a crisp formal shirt and pants are a must-have. And even though you can’t show up to work dressed in shorts and wearing whatever you want, you can always accessorize your look and amp up your formal wear to suit your comfort and style. Start with incorporating patterns in your shirts, like stripes or checks.
If smart casuals are allowed, try the combination of smart separates, i.e a T-shirt paired with a suit or a smart jacket paired with a pair of well-fitted chinos or sleek leather shoes will also do the trick. For the weekend you can swap your formal trousers for a nice pair of jeans (ideally a straight leg or a tapered fit); avoid torn or baggy jeans. Keep things simple by sticking to shades of blue and black.

2 Grooming

You might deny this but a man is judged instantly on the way he has dressed himself. That is why being well-groomed is very important especially when going to work. Take care of your skin by applying moisturizer and sunscreen before stepping outside.

Your beard and hair should be trimmed and combed. 2018 has brought on a whole new level on hairstyles for the modern man to support. The textured crop is one of the coolest looks and haircuts for guys this year. Wear it short or long, with or without bangs and textured or messy.

Loose Pompadour

Another men’s hairstyle that is huge this year is the taper haircut. This scissor cut style is a classic look that can be worn short or medium length. Longer styles are also popular this year, for every hair type from straight to curly, like the Loose Pompadour, Textured Quiff Haircut, Side Part Combover or the Slicked Back style. These looks are bold, creative and will make people look twice.

Side Part Combover

Body odour is a big thing. No one wants to be standing or sitting next to someone who smells bad. Apply a cologne or a good body spray and don’t forget to have a bath after coming back from the gym or any physical activity.

 

3 Exercise

Take some time out from your schedule and get into shape. You don’t necessarily have to join a gym or start a vigorous workout. Taking a walk twice a day or even an early morning run will help you burn some calories and clear your mind. Zumba is an upcoming trend as a substitute for those who prefer a more fun approach for workouts. Zumba allows you to sweat it out through dance moves. You can also try Yoga if you are looking for a less exertive physical activity.

 

4 Tailored Clothing

Finding the perfect fit is very important as the garment will follow the contour of your body perfectly. Tailored clothing gaining prominence as everyone is looking to customise their clothes to their likes and designs.

There is nothing wrong with readymade wear when you are looking for immediate options. However, there is a luxurious feel to getting yourself a suit stitched just for you. Be it the perfect fit or the fact that a tailored suit will always highlight your personal style and physique. We know that finding a good tailor that understands your needs and preferences and the current trends may take some time, so skip the wait and experience our Tailor Fit services here: http://bit.ly/Siyarams_Store

Pro Tip: Did you know that tailor-fitted clothes last longer than readymade wear as you can choose the quality of the material!

5 Accessories

While women have a variety to choose from, men have very few accessories that they can use. Accessorise your outfit with these essential add-ons.

A Watch does more than just tell time, it has the ability to add a little sophistication and class to your look. Opt for a leather strap watch as it is bound to match most of your outfits.

When buying Belts, remember, the bigger the belt buckle the less formal it is. Dress belts typically have very small, flat belt buckles. Almost all dress belts will have either a gold-colored or silver-colored finish.

One rule that should stay with you in dress or casual wear: brown leather shoes go with a brown leather belt, and black with black. When pairing other accessories make sure that all the elements are from the same colour family.

Coming to Ties, the more you have the merrier as you can always wear the same suit but pair it with a different tie. When buying ties, make sure the fabric is soft: silk is the fabric of choice when it comes to men’s neckties as they are resistant to wrinkles and does not attract dirt because of its smooth finish. Make sure your tie is of proportionate length which may vary from manufacturer to manufacturer but most ‘regular’ ties are around 57″-58″, while “extra-long” or “tall” sizes are closer to 62″-64″.
