Fashion Essentials for your Summer Collection

Every season has its particular characteristic when it comes to dressing up. It’s all about thicker fabrics, darker colours and simple patterns in the winters. But as we move on from the chill of winters towards the scorching heat of summers, our wardrobe demands for a change. Summer dressing should always consist of light fabrics, bright colours and bold patterns. Embrace the long sunny days and put your stylish foot forward. Here are a few tips that could help you figure how to do that without burning a hole in your wallet. From Cotton Shirts to Beach Shorts, here’s our pick of summer fashion essentials to help you look your best during this season.

  1. A breezy Linen/Cotton Shirt:

The most exclusively essential summer staple, a Linen or a Cotton button-down shirt which provides ample versatility when the temperature soars. It’s one of those classics that can’t go wrong during summers. Wear it as a dress shirt or a casual shirt, it’s perfect for any occasion this season!

  1. The Perfect Summer Shades:

Sunglasses are simply the best summer accessory you can have in your wardrobe. These come in different shapes and colours ranging from the Wayfarers to the Aviators and the new in-trend round shaped sunglasses. Opt for the style of sunglasses that complement you and your outfit.

  1. A Stylish Suit:

Be it a summer wedding or just any work meeting, when it’s about having to wear a suit, we suggest wearing something composed of a light fabric like cotton or linen, or any cotton-linen blends. You’ll be more comfortable and fashionable during the hot days while keeping yourself away from the sweaty mess.

  1. An Inexpensive Watch:

Summer’s are a call for long vacations which involve occasional trips along the beach. If you wear watches at the beach, we suggest sticking to a cheaper alternative watch as it may catch humidity from the water. There are tons of cool, low-priced, water-resistant watches in the market that are your best companions for the season.

  1. Go light on your Feet:

Give your socks a rest and show some ankle! Socks are strictly optional during summer. Loafers, Sneakers, Derbies, even a pair of Flip Flops look good with a bit of ankle showing and are sure to compliment your attire for the day.

  1. A Simple Hat/Cap:

Whether you’re chilling at the beach, out for a small picnic in the park or just taking a stroll on a sunny day, a good hat will keep your head and your face protected from the heat. Trust us when we say, a hat works better than a sunscreen.

  1. Simple, Comfortable Chinos:

Say no to denims and heavy fabric trousers for the months of summer. Chinos are the best lightweight alternative that need to be added to your wardrobe. They may look unstructured or boring, hence rolling them up to your ankle would make a pair of chinos look casually cool.

Plain and casual basics are core to building an amazing and eye-catching outfit. Hopefully, after reading this guide, we know you’ll be rest assured as to what kind of staple pieces need to make the cut for your summer wardrobe, the inexpensive way.

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.

In today’s world, being a gentleman is not enough, you have to look like one too. Deny it all you want, but a man is judged instantly on how he looks and how well-groomed he is. In this blog post we’ll be talking about how you can strike an impression purely on the basis of your grooming.

Take care of your skin
Your face is the first thing that gets noticed. Always keep your skin fresh and healthy. However, even though your face gets noticed the most of the time, that does not mean that you ignore the rest of your body. Apply a good moisturiser on your face and as well on your body.
