The Strong Impact Of Colours

Have you ever stopped to think about the colour of your clothes? When shopping for clothes, you’re probably processing 2-3 pieces per second until one of them absolutely stands out and makes you want to try it on. Colours play an important role while shopping for new clothes. Let’s understand the impact of colours better and why they play a vital role on a daily basis in our lives.

Finding the right shade for the right season

It is suggested that certain colour palettes are best suited for particular seasons of the year. During winters, it is better to wear colours that are sharp and clear. White, black, navy blue, and red, all look easy on the eyes. Summers are all about bright colour palettes. For lighter colours, icy tones are preferable to pastels. Avoid tones like beige, orange and gold. 

Colour Wheel to the rescueA colour wheel often comes to the rescue when you’re in a dire need to save a fashion mishap. After observing a colour wheel, we can see that there are 12 main colours ranging from red to violet, green to yellow, and all the way back to blue to red.These are basic colours that can be referred to as hues. Upon addition of black or white to any one of these hues, the range of colors that can be derived is virtually endless. The trick is in understanding the position of each colour on the wheel, how close or far apart they are is what makes them easy or difficult to coordinate.

Colour Combinations for Casual Style

Casual colours usually don’t make us dive into a state of excitement, but they’re likely to be easy on the eyes. Build your casual collection by adding bright colours such as shades of orange and green. These look good with the Indian skin tone and are also different from the white, blue and black that most men wear. Try wearing your blue denim or cotton shorts with a bright toned tee and white trainers. Simple but effective. You will see how much the colours pop and compliment each other.

Monochrome never goes out of fashion

A monotone chromatic colour scheme is simple and always  stays in trend. Take one particular shade and adopt 2-3 variations of that colour, creating an impact with the hue. Attempt to experiment with dark and light shades. The main ingredient is the pairing of the tint and the shade. Since the colours are similar, there is more room to differentiate by adding texture and layering. 

Colours and colour combinations are an important aspect of fashion and menswear. They add variety, personality and fun to your closet. If you are ever in doubt, pick a colour and don’t be hesitant to play around with the tint and shade.

Red Carpet Fashion Evolution – The 90th Academy Awards

Everyone, from the common man to the fashionistas, looks forward to the trendsetting Red Carpet fashion at the Oscars. As always, we saw a varied range of men’s outfits from different styles and cuts of suits to a variety of textures combined with embroidery. To mark the celebration of one of the most prestigious award ceremonies, let’s take a look at the fashion evolution that took place over a span of five years, that is from 2013 to 2018 at The Academy Awards.

2013

Tuxedos, the ultimate red carpet classic, shone excessively on the 2013 Oscars red carpet. Actors Eddie Redmayne, Chris Evans and Chris Pine sported their rendition of classy black and white Tuxedo and finished the look with a stunning pair of shoes and perfect ties and bow ties.

2014 

This year we saw a fashion curve taking place as men took to wearing solid-coloured suits on the red carpet. We loved Ansel Elgort’s bold royal blue suit and a neat black bow tie,  Michael Strahan’s maroon tux underlined with black trim and singer turned actor Jared Leto adding a twist to his tuxedo by wearing a white blazer, black trousers and a red velvet bow tie.

2015

Another year, another tuxedo, but 2015 was about experimenting with the classics. One of our favourites was Actor Adrien Brody wearing a white jacket with black lapels while David Oyelowo shone in his brick red attire and the host of the night, Neil Patrick Harris in his neat grey ensemble.

2016

Shades of blue, grey and monotones graced the red carpet in 2016. Our favourite picks from the red carpet were Ryan Seacrest, popular radio personality, TV host, and producer, who looked dapper from head to toe in a well-fitted cool grey suit. Also, The Hulk protagonist Mark Ruffalo in his midnight blue blazer and Kevin Hart in his all-black ensemble with embellished outlines.

2017

The year 2017 didn’t really experience bold fashion statements, yet actor Dev Patel went classic with a white jacket and a black bow tie. Ryan Gosling hit the jackpot in a classic black tuxedo with a white ruffled shirt, while, Pharrell Williams was seen with his own version of a morning coat on the red carpet.

2018

Velvets, leathers, bold colours and exquisite embroidery were a few elements that were vividly seen on the red carpet. The top pick for the day had to be Black Panther protagonist Chadwick Boseman, looking stunning as he arrived at the red carpet in an intricately embroidered long black jacket paired with leather zippered boots. Other favourites of the day were Armie Hammer who was dressed in a red velvet-clad tuxedo and Timothée Chalamet who effortlessly pulled off an all white-on-white ensemble.

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. Let us know which look you like in by commenting below. You can also follow us on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook.
