It is said clothes maketh a man and if you mix and match right, you can make numerous stylish looks suiting multiple occasions. Different looks for men can be created by fusion of the garments and accessories in their existing wardrobe. Coordination between patterns like checks, paisley and solids is essential, say experts.
*Formal: A well-fitted tuxedo or evening jacket with colour-coordinated pants look very chic. Revealing a bit of the shirt cuff can add a point to one’s style game. A grown man should own at least two to three pairs of formal shoes. A pair of Oxfords is a staple in every man’s wardrobe. It is best worn at office and work-related events. Brogues and Chelsea boots can also be part of your formal shoe collection.
* Business casual: This category falls generally in between formals and casual. One would dress in a business casual ensemble for a party, brunch, date or other any social occasion. It is a lighter spin on a formal wear but is dressier than casual wear. Chelsea boots, sneakers, loafers, monk straps, boat shoes and even Oxfords and Derby’s can be paired with denims, trousers, chinos and a blazer or sport coat on top to create a fantastic business casual outfit.
*Casual: High tops, slip-ons and even athletic kicks can be experimented with loafers and boots. They can be paired with T-shirts, Henley’s, denims, chinos, shorts and cargoes for a cool look.
*Indo-western look: Bandhgala is going to be a trend this season. The great thing about wearing a bandhgala is that one can pair it with regular jeans and/or a kurta. Opt for silk bandhgala in velvet finish for a formal event.
Ornamental detachable buttons can give a graceful look for a wedding soirée. An overall power booster to the look can be a good pair of handmade mojaris in neutral colours.
