Deepavali 2018 is just around the corner and the preparations have started with gusto. While dressing up is an important part of any festival, it is highly focused on women.
This festive season, News Today brings you top tips for the men to put their best fashion foot forward.
BANDGALA SLEEVELESS JACKETS
Speaking of an evolved fusion of fashionable elements with classic Italian cuts, this jacket is something that will never go out of fashion. Looking for a sharp look while adding some character to your style this festive season? This is a wardrobe fundamental for the man who is always on the go, managing many roles without compromising on style and comfort. Pick this and stand out amongst the rest.
What’s necessary is, you pick the colours that say celebrations. Deeper tones do well especially when you go for some purple, mauve or peach. A little sheen in the fabric gives a superior touch to the whole outfit. Patterns of checks and structure are another beautiful way of the festive expression. Detailing in the shirts will give a tinge to the formal look any day. Piping on the collar, satin tapes on the shirt and trouser waist is the perfect way of going extravagant for the festive celebrations.
LAST MINUTE DRESSING
If you wish to stay in your comfort zone and yet look all kinds of traditional, just pair up a casual, loose button up cotton shirt or a kurta with your favourite pair of jeans. Throw on a printed contrasting scarf and Kolhapuri chappals to ace the Indo-western game. This Diwali outfit idea is low maintenance and very easy to pull off. The perfect last minute fix!
DON’T FORGET YOUR SHOES
Traditional shoes can make even a modern outfit pass off as traditional, that’s the power these shoes possess! So no matter what you do about your outfit, don’t forget to pick up at least two pairs of men’s juttis or kolhapuris from the market. You can easily find these while street shopping so there’s absolutely no need to stress about the money!
Believe it or not, a small piece of jewellery can transform your entire outfit and especially, when your outfit it simple, it can add just the right kind of drama you need without overdoing it. So finish your basic Diwali ensemble with finger rings, a thin neck chain, or even a clip-on ear stud will do the trick!
Nothing and we repeat, nothing, will beat the humble dhoti paired with a striking silk shirt. Even ‘thala’ Ajith is going to rock it in Viswasam. So, you better dust up your cupboards and get out silk dhoti and silk shirt you last wore for a cousin or a sibling’s wedding. The classics are always the best and never go out of style.
