November 19th, 2018

Hot dudes out there, it is time to attract a little warmth since winter is coming! As nights start to get longer and days shorter, our fashion goals need to be updated and wardrobes stacked with winter menswear collections. Without beating around the bush and driving straight to the point, here we list some of the top winter fashion trends for men in 2018:

 

1. A cashmere jumper to embrace some warmth :

Whether you’re going for a formal or an informal look, throwing on a cashmere jumper fits your winter fashion goals. Go for nude colours that aren’t hard-hitting and complement T-shirts and shirts alike. For a laidback weekend look, put on a cashmere jumper over a white tee and finish the look with whitewashed denims, white sneakers and dark aviators.

2. Layering it is the old classic mantra :

Whether it is about the golden 90s or the modern 21st Century, layering clothes is something that continues to be in our list of winter fashion trends for 2018. For a formal look, pair your formal shirt with a blazer and put on an overcoat on the outside. Thermal vests are also considering options to add on to the warmth factor.

3. A trench coat or a hoodie fits the bill :

A trench coat is one of the most beloved things that you can include in your winter wardrobe. Something that looks quite sophisticated and is versatile in nature, wear it over narrow pants or denims to rock like a fashion pro. If a trench coat is too formal to carry, then the humble hoodie is the best ally. Pair a hoodie with sturdy chinos over thermal pants and finish the look with a duffle bag to woo the town.

4. Lapel pins to add that elegant touch :

Spice up your party wear look with gold or silver lapel pins and if you’re looking for something more elegant, go for brooches set in different metals and stones. Since it is about winter fashion, gold lapel pins are the ideal picks as they are warmer than silver. Gold cufflinks, collar bars or tie bars should be the accessories to adorn in winter 2018.

5. Corduroy pants to stay a class apart :

Other than the much-needed warmth that corduroy pants provide in winter, they are a wonderful alternative to the traditional denims and can be carried with poise to work as well. Pair a denim shirt with corduroy pants and finish the look with a blazer and leather boots. And if you want to beat the norms, go for corduroy pants with a printed corduroy jacket over a solid colour tee.

Style with Desi Kurta looks this Diwali

November 1st, 2018

It doesn’t matter whether you’re tall or short, well built or petite, fair or dark…kurta is the one attire that suits all Indian men alike. Something that can be sported to any event with equal poise – right from your friend’s wedding to a funeral ceremony to a protest rally – it’s a humble outfit that does justice to all ceremonies, looking its graceful best.

If you’re thinking to sport the desi kurta look this Diwali, then why not experiment around and create a look that is praiseworthy? With a few tips, you can finely turn your kurta into a statement-making Diwali outfit. Given below are 5ways by which you can refresh the traditional kurta look this Diwali:

1. Balance it like a pro:

The first thing you need to focus on when selecting a kurta is going for the right fit. It should neither be too loose (which will make you look baggy), nor should it be too tight (of course, you don’t want to look gasping for breath). Go for a size that flaunts your natural silhouette. A kurta that exhibits a great cut, is not heavily embellished, and also skims well through your body line is what you should be aiming for.

2. Carry your swag with accessories:

While it’s true that a desi kurta itself livens up the Diwali festivities, wearing some accessories makes an even bolder impression. Go for a statement watch to show off your masculine side, or if you want to adorn something more ethnic and cultural, a minimalist lapel pin or a brooch fits the bill. Even pocket squares that are available in a wide range of colors and patterns make great choices to stand a class apart.

3. Layer it up to build the oomph factor:

Nothing can compare to layering up your kurta with a waistcoat, trench coat, blazer jacket, or Nehru jacket. It instantly elevates the style appeal of your look. To make the most of this tip, go for a single-coloured coat that has minimal prints on it. If you’re on a slightly heavier side, then keep the buttons open, else if you have a lean figure, then buttoning up the jacket is what we recommend.

4. Old is gold:

No matter how old some trends are, they continue to dominate the style meter with their ageless appeal. You can never go wrong with a solid printed kurta shirt kurta paired with a pair of skinny fit denim. For the footwear, kolhapuris or mojadis or sandals are great choices. To carry a more traditional look, go for a silk dhoti or a crisp pyjama. This is indeed one classic look that’ll look good almost anytime.

5. Drape it to sway it:

Men, if you want to dress to impress, then draping a stole around your neck fits the bill. It instantly adds a nice dramatic look to your kurta pyjama. However, keep in mind that the colour of your stole should be in contrast to that of the kurta. Also, if it is printed heavily, then you might want to keep a major part of the stole on your back. Strike the correct balance to stay a class apart.
