The essentials
“When it comes to wardrobe essentials, a man should have a well-fitted suit that he can wear to work or a wedding. A bandhgala is also a must for formal events. A white shirt is essential since it is versatile — it can be worn with a suit for a casual look; under a crew neck jumper over the weekend; or teamed with a pair of slim chinos and a statement belt. A pair of slim blue jeans (but not too tight) is also necessary. I also recommend loads of sweatshirts and hoodies — they are comfortable and trendy.”

Shoe shots
“Every man needs a pair of smart shoes. They’re classic enough to be worn with a suit, while the shape means that they can just as easily be worn with a tux. A pair of white sneakers is also a must have — these speak for themselves. The beauty of white trainers is that they’ll anchor almost every pre-made look in your wardrobe — just ensure they remain reasonably white. Shoes can dress down or dress up any outfit, making your ensemble versatile.”

Avoid this
“One fashion faux pas that men make is wearing ill-fitted clothing with too many prints and statement pieces. Keeping it simple is the key.”

Style tip
“Dress according to your age, body type and personality. Make a personal style statement instead of blindly following trends.”

Making A Statement

27 Aug, 2019

While the women strutted and waltzed down their way down the ramp in dreamy lehengas and bejewelled ensembles, it was the men that stole the show in tailored bandhgalas and glitzy jackets.In Pic (L to R): Ayushmann Khurrana for Rohit Gandhi and Rahul Khanna, Farhan Akhtar for Payal Singhal, and Hardik Pandya for designer Amit Aggarwal.

Time please
“Invest in a good watch. They are timeless beauties. What better way to look your best than to complement your look with a classic watch or a statement piece, according to your outfit? They also make great family heirlooms.”

Trend talk

“It’s all about tailored suits these days. Single-breasted, double-breasted, exaggerated, elegant, well-tailored suits have all become big. Those who like the less formal look can opt for a suit with a wrap around, tie-up belt or kimono look. OTT (over the top) prints are for those of you who want to stand out.”

You make a style statement when you…

“Are confident and chivalrous.”

Pull out
“The golden rule is ‘less is more’. Stick to one statement piece at a time.”

Pack for the weekend
“A cool pair of trainers that goes from day to night, a smart blazer in case you need that semi-formal look paired with jeans, or a casual pair of trousers. Track bottoms and a sweatshirt also make for a great airport look. Swimming trunks are a must if you plan on going to the beach. Also, don’t forget the aftershave.”
