Dapper Diwali

Hello guys!!

Wish you all a very Happy and Prosperous Diwali. Diwali is the most significant festival of India. Often know as ‘festival of lights’, Diwali is celebrated for five days; but in few parts of India the celebrations continue till Tulsi Vivah.

To make sure that you look your best on this auspicious occasion I have come up with a new outfit. The end of diwali marks the beginning of wedding season in India, the ensemble showcased below is perfect for a sangeet, engagement, a festival or any other traditional or cultural event.

Men do not have much options, when it comes to ethnicwear. A kurta-pajama, simple or embroidered sherwani, a nehru jacket and dhoti are the only options we choose from. However, you can always experiment with the resources available, style them in a unique way and stand out from the crowd.

So, without much delay lets see the outfit.

Well the above outfit is what I wore for the Diwali Pahat this year. I did not want to buy a new kurta or a complete dress so, I decided to style my simple kurta with a shawl to get a decent look with a touch of royality to it. I had bought this red, cotton kurta & pajama for a traditional day event held in my college. And the shawl belongs to my dad, I had bought this one when I went on  Shimla tour this year.

I styled my traditional look by draping the shawl in different ways. For the accessories, I suggest going simple as always. I wore a brown leather belt Denial Wellington watch, a dark brown wrist band and two rings to accessorize the look. Going down to footwear, you can wear a nice pair of tasseled loafers, kolhapuri chappals or even a leather belt sandal. Amritsari chittar’s or jutti as it is known popularly, was my choice for footwear.

Lets Get Aztec’d

Hey guys!! What’s up?

Hope you all are enjoying the monsoon whilst staying swish 😉 . Its august, the month when the rains slowly calm down by the end of it and leave behind the greenery. This month also marks the beginning of festive season in India. The monsoon is about to end in september and the autumn begins thereafter; here I am with yet another blog featuring a piece from MaxfashionIndia’s pre-autumn collection.

Aztec prints should definitely be on your list this season. Aztec prints are colorful, fun and the graphics on them give a tribal feel to it. Aztec prints are inspired from a tribal, ethnic group of Mexico. The prints are a mix of stripes, polkas etc in different geometric patterns.

The shirt that I chose has AZTEC print on it and it is in color dark blue with white prints and has a few sea blue stripes. The reason behind choosing aztec is : firstly, they are trending and secondly, the prints on them give them a traditional touch; so you can wear them on a regular weekend, for hangouts and for a festive occasion as well. The color blue and all of its shades are my personal favourite as they give a sense of calmness, peace and promotes mental relaxation.

I paired the shirt with a white trouser, as I thought it goes in perfect contrast with the dark blue. The combination looks perfectly balanced and makes you stand out in lush green environment of the season. I wore my dark brown pointed shoes to enhance the outfit and the overall look.

The only accessory that i wore was a Daniel Wellington watch with brown belt. However, one can also wear a back or brown leather bracelet or an anchor bracelet. A tanned brown bag will also look kickass with the outfit.

Remember, the key to look swish is in understanding how to wear an outfit and styling it accordingly.

Goan Touch

 

Hey guys, welcome to the very first post on my blog!!!

Recently , I mean a few days back I decided to visit Goa after the final semester of my engineering. I am sure most of you have already visited or are planning to visit Goa or some other place in Konkan.

So, here I am with a casual look that suits best for a vacay. A street look with perfect color combination is all you need.

Sight seeing in Goa on a sunny day might get you sweaty. White is the the perfect color for such situation. Being the brightest color of all it reflects most of the sunlight and keeps you cool.

I layered the tee with a floral print shirt. With the spring coming to an end, and onset of monsoon, that too in Goa; I thought prints would be a perfect choice. Note, when you layer with prints always keep the rest of your clothing – plain and basic.

I paired the look with denim shorts in order to stay cool and look stylish at the same time.

About the footwear and the accessories, I chose white shoes as they complemented my outfit very well. One can also experiment and try wearing espadrilles.

Watch is the main and must have accessory every man should possess. A white and navy DW ( Daniel Wellington) and reflectors was all I needed to complete the look.

Hope you liked the look.

Do share your views and opinion about the look. Post me the queries that you have and do try the look an send me the pictures.  See you all with the next style post until then stay stylish , be swanky. 🙂
