5 outfits that you can wear with the White Sneaker trend

June 30th, 2019

White sneakers are these days fast becoming the latest fashion for men to sport. Its feverish success is largely owing to the fact that you can seamlessly pair them with almost any sort of attire and colours. Moreover, the stand out white colour of the shoes adds an instant coolness and smartness into the whole look. Thus, here are top 5 outfit types which go best with white sneakers:

1. Jeans and T-shirt :

This classic men’s clothing style is one of the best attires to pair with white sneakers. You can pick out a variety of colours in T-shirts. Usually, bright colours and light cotton textures give the best results. However, this is completely up to personal preference and you should pick one that you feel suits your style and personality best. In Jeans again, you can choose lighter colours to give a sombre look or dark shades to bring out a contrast adding to the sharpness to the entire outfit.

2. Shorts and T-shirt :

For the optimum casual look, go with a pair of shorts and a T-shirt with your white sneakers. This look will give off the perfect breezy vibe and is one of the best outfits to sport during summers. Experiment with the colour schemes according to your personal preferences and personality. Usually, common practice is to either go for all neutral colours (this will make for a sombre look), or bright coloured T-shirts and dark shorts to bring out contrast making the attire look very smart.

3. Shirts with Denim Shorts :

Another very interesting variation of attire to go with white sneakers is a casual shirt paired with denim shorts. This is essentially a very holiday look and gives off a relaxing vibe. Try out broad checked shirts and use lighter colours that match with the shoes. In the denim shorts, you can use either darker or lighter shades depending on your personal likings. Together put, this look exudes a relaxed and smart vibe.

4. Polos and Shorts :

Polo shirts in themselves make for a very smart look. Add a casual pair of shorts to them and finish the look with white sneakers to make for the optimum smart summer look. Experiment with different patterns and colours to find the perfect blend depending on your tastes. Usually, this attire works best with lighter shades of polo (white works best) and matching pair of shorts (grey or khaki works best).

5. Smart Casuals :

White sneakers are one of the best pair of shoes to compliment a smart casual attire. So take up a pair of casual shirt, a nice coat, a crisp pair of trousers and up the game by complimenting it with your white sneakers. The shoes here will uplift the entire outfit making you appear to be a perfectly smart gentleman. You can experiment with colours again, of course, depending on your preferences but the usual standard advice here is to stick with lighter colours throughout.

Men’s style guide: The ultimate pieces men need to dress for summer 2019

May 14th, 2019

Summer is here, and it’s time to bring back the shorts and the tees. When you’re in double minds about your pieces while dressing up, keep in mind that less is more. Always stick to lighter colours and breathable fabrics. And when you’re going to stay outdoors for long, it’s better to cover up your body. Let us get more detailed and enter into the nitty-gritty of men’s clothing style this summer. We have written about the ultimate pieces you need to dress for summer 2019.

1. Basic t-shirts :

You need to stack up your wardrobe with a few pieces of basic tees in neutral colours. White, light blue and grey are essentials. You can spice up a bit and add colourful greens, yellows and reds to your collection to add in a sparkle of colour in your outfits. Basic plain tees are versatile and go amazingly well with shorts or beneath jackets. You can wear black in cooler indoor environments but avoid it if you’re to stay outdoors for long. Make sure your t-shirts are fully made of cotton, or other light, breathable materials.

2. Khaki Shorts :

Shorts and summers go hand in hand. Khaki shorts in tan, olive and camouflage colours are a never dying breed of clothing especially during summers. You can also try on different coloured shorts with basic casual shirts. T-shirts and shorts are the best combination in existence to grace summers’ sunshine and heat. A day at the beach or a hilltop picnic calls for light coloured shorts to be worn with flip-flops. Buy two to three plain coloured shorts to create different combinations and looks with shirts and t-shirts and shoes or flip-flops.

3. Light coloured pants :

It’s a better choice to wear light coloured chinos and trousers compared to thick denim. Along with reflecting the light back, they also cover up the legs protecting them from heat and radiation. In times of a long trip in the outdoors, it’s a better option to opt for light coloured pants instead of shorts. You can at times ditch the light coloured cream, beige and white pants to go for coloured pants to add a little funk to the outfit. Stick to neutral colours for the upper body in this case as the pants would be the star attraction!

4. Shirts :

When we talk about men’s dressing style, shirts are the most basic pieces of clothing to arrive in our minds. Summer shirts are light, bright and fun. Hawaiian shirts are a hot favourite to sport on with shorts or casual chinos and loafers! If you’re wearing full sleeved shirts the fold the sleeves and stick to lighter colours. Check pattern shirts with short sleeves also work great in workspaces as well as other outdoor activities.

5. Footwear :

Floaters and flip-flops are your best comfort options this season. If you want to go for shoes; espadrilles, loafers, sneakers, and boat shoes pair up well shorts and should be worn with ankle-length or invisible socks. Keep your shoe length below the ankles.

While keeping these basic items in mind, don’t forget other peripheral men’s accessories like caps, sunglasses and belts. Stick to a classic style of eyewear that suits your face shape. You can own two basic coloured leather belts, and they will go well with most of the outfits that you wear. The only thing to acknowledge is, the less the better this summer!

Colors to avoid this summer

February 16th, 2019

Summer is finally here and summer sweat is an actual problem. Step one is realizing and embracing the fact that you’re a sweaty pig so you can tackle those leaky stains with some ease. Winter and spring offer so many dressing options to look sharp, but summer is a big no-no. The last thing you want is sweat gushing from your face like the Niagara Falls.

Colors to avoid this summer

Colors are a cruel mistress and finding hues that work with your skin tone is not very easy. Read on for a useful guide to finding colors that won’t work for you this summer.

1. Grays :

If you constantly have leaky pits, back, and chest, it’s best that you stay away from hues of dark gray this summer. They are the worst options for hiding sweat and also absorb tons of heat that will make you sweat even more. However, wearing patterns in this shade for an evening outing might not cause that much damage.

2. Black and Navy :

Black is a strict no-no for summers. You will be roasting inside because dark colors absorb the sun’s rays and trap their heat, making you feel even hotter. Black and navy blues are a constant in every man’s wardrobe and we know it makes up most of their formal and corporate wear, but it’s worth keeping them to a minimum to have a cool and comfortable month.

3. Red :

You might look a little too bold in red and stand out of the crowd. Red as a color conveys both assertiveness and power, however, it will not be the best choice when the temperate is at 45 degree Celsius. Red along with its hues are best not worn in summer as they give a washed out look because of all the heat they trap.

4. Purple :

Purple is one of the most overlooked colors in menswear, and there is no surprise why. You should avoid darker hues of purple like burgundy that are loud and opt for subtle tones like mauve. You are more likely to leak and have patchy sweat stains when dark and loud colors are worn in summer. Dial the volume down and keep these shades for those dark winter days.

Final word, summer may be here but that does not mean you have to give up on colors you like. You can be stylish wearing your favorite colors but in lighter hues that will not only help you feel cool but also look sharp. You cannot avoid sweating when the temperate is boiling but can look less of a sweaty wreck if you avoid these colors in summer!

Skinny dudes, here’s the ultimate style guide to look your best

February 15th, 2019

Not all of us are blessed with the perfect body type. And while the whole world is cognizant of the issues healthy people have to face in terms of clothing, for which brands have also launched their plus size collection to cater to their fashion needs, not many realise that skinny people also have issues and struggle with the latest fashion for men. The obvious solution- gain those extra pounds; after all it is easier to gain it than to shed it. However, gaining those pounds also take time. We’ve thus brought for all those skinny albeit gorgeous people some men fashion tips to keep your style game strong, until you gain those kilos:

 

1. Avoid clothes that make you look frail :

This is a big no. The biggest giveaways of your frail figures are the oversized clothes. Skinny guys generally opt for large clothes in the hopes that their frames get camouflaged. It however, has an entirely opposite effect. Not only does it accentuate your frame more but also brings down your style quotient. Also, wearing skin-tight clothes will do just the same. Therefore, finding the right fit is a must. This may require a little too frequent visit to the tailor, but then, it’s all worthwhile.

2. Wear the one item designed to make you look stronger :

Yes, skinny men can look buff too! All they need is a jacket- a suit jacket, a sports coat or a blazer. How do they achieve that? They broaden your shoulders, giving you a somewhat muscular look. Most of the jackets have padding in them, which adds about half an inch on each side. However, too much of a good thing is not good. Always opt for options with light padding. Keep it subtle. Jackets also accentuate your V- shape, which is a universal sign of male strength.

3. Wear multiple layers :

Adding layers to your body adds a bit of breadth to it. However, caution is to be exercised here as well. You cannot simply wear thick layers one on top of the other. That just ruins your look altogether, and makes you look like you’re trying too hard. Instead, you want to layer it from thin to thick and from light to sturdy. Begin with the lightest fabric and then add sturdier ones with each layer. Ensure colour coordination among the layers too.

4. Wear fabrics that add bulk to the frame :

Choosing the right fabric is a good way of adding visual bulk to the frame. Textured fabrics for instance are a good way to achieve that. It is therefore recommended to stock your wardrobe with more of tweeds, flannels, glen checks, denim and corduroy. Everything that looks a bit rougher to touch are suggestive of more body mass. Thick-knit sweaters or cardigans will also do.

5. Make your neck look better :

Aristotle approves. According to his works on physiognomy, a sturdy neck is a sign of courage and strength. It is recommended to make your neck look better and sturdier. Turtlenecks are a great way of achieving that. Collared sweaters and cardigans work equally well. Men clothing styles like zip necks, funnel necks, stand up collars and shawl collars are also suggested.

So, here we have listed down seven easy and simple tips, to help you dress in style without having to break your work dress code!

1. Understand what’s acceptable in your industry :

Different industries have different dress code requirements. If you work in the corporate world, you may be strictly required to wear formal for work. But, on the other hand, if working in the media, your office work wear can be comparatively relaxed than the corporate people. So, it is very important to get an idea of what is accepted and what isn’t.

2. Wear rich colours :

Your choice of colour is equally important as your office attire. Settle for rich colours in darker tones as they convey a stronger impression. Avoid anything that is bright or neon, as it can be too flashy and distracting for the others.

3. Wear clothes that fit :

An office isn’t a place to experiment. If you are opting for work wear clothes, you have to make sure that your clothes fit you properly. Anything too small or too big will not look good on you. If in case, you already own something that doesn’t fits aptly, try getting it tailored or else just get rid of it!

4. Dry your hair :

This may sound something out of the blue, but only if you have noticed the number of times guys leave their house without drying or setting their hair, you’ll definitely understand the reason behind mentioning this point! Never ever leave your house with wet hair. Firstly, it ruins your look, considering the pollution and dust around and secondly, it can make you look like your life isn’t together, which you definitely do not want at your workplace.

5. Your office bag counts too :

Imagine you go all dressed up and then team it up a simple backpack. Sounds inappropriate, right? Your office bag is as important as your attire. Also, whether you carry a briefcase or a side bag, make sure that you clean it at least every week because you wouldn’t want your colleagues to catch a glimpse or your untidy bag.

6. Wear well-kept and polished shoes :

Do you know that your shoes too can create an impression of you? Is not uncommon, but in fact, many recruiters actually notice the candidates shoes first. And, the reason behind this, your shoes require the least attention and if you pay attention towards this minute detail too, it means that you have the tendency to pay attention even to the smallest of details. So, the next time you step out for work, make sure that your shoes are polished and in good condition.

7. Pay attention to your watch :
