Killing a look is easier than you think. I mean literally killing it. It’s very important to find the right balance between being stylish and trying too hard. You do not want to be the latter. Here are a few things that should be kept in check because there is a very fine line between being on board and being overboard.
1. Ripped jeans –
One of the most dapper trends of the season and a must have in everyone’s wardrobe. But how much is too much? The safest and classiest as the single knee rips. If you intend to add more rips to that, you might want to be extra extraaaaa careful.
2. Colored pants –
It’s always fun to try something new instead of sticking to the same old basics. However certain things are eternal in style for a reason. While you could add muted shades of reds, greens and even purples; bright colors like yellow, orange etc. are a big no no.
3. Tattoos –
Most people are of the belief that when they ink their skin, it signifies or stands for something. Even if it is just a style statement, they opt for sleeve tattoos but knowing where to draw the line in terms of the size and the design are very important. To an extent it also depends on one’s personality and their personal style on a regular basis.
4. Piercings –
Yes, Zayn Malik can pull off a nose ring and ear studs. In an ideal world, all men would look like Zayn Malik. Unfortunately we don’t live in an ideal world and therefore not everyone can pull off what he does. It is great to be inspired by someone’s style but duplicating it is not a given so make your choices wisely.
5. Quirky prints –
Yet again, not everyone of you is a Ranveer Singh and guess what? You don’t have to be! It is very easy to go wrong with extremely quirky prints and even wearing two prints together. Unless you practice and fail miserably a few times, you will never master the art.
6. Accessorize –
It is a cherry on top to watch men accessorize because it shows how much of effort they’ve put into dressing up for a certain occasion. However, less is more. Wearing too many accessories or jewelry may not always fall in your favor.
7. Trends –
Keeping up with the latest trends is great but what looks good on a runway, might not look good in real life. Plus the runway is bound to be surreal. In the real world, following a trend like man skirts can be the hardest thing to do.
These are a few areas to keep in mind while experimenting and dressing up. Your clothing is a reflection of your attitude, mood and personality. Make sure it’s always classy and avoid the trashy. Until next time.
– Your stylist.
