Who said there are less options for fashion-conscious men during winters? This season, jazz up your wardrobe with Indian cuts and styles such as classic 'bandhgalas' or 'angrakha'-style jackets to make a statement, suggest designers.
Unlike women, who can use accessories to glamourise their look, men face limitations on this front. But no harm in experimenting a bit!
"Being your glamorous best is a little difficult in winter, especially for men. But one can try out bandhgala jackets with 'dhotis' and 'salwars', angrakha and frock-tunic silhouette with palazzo pants and double-breasted cut in silk-brocade. These make a very contemporary statement," designer Sunil Mehra told IANS.
For party animals, go mafia chic, says designer Aniket Satam.
"Sport well-fitted trousers teamed with shirts in baroque jacquard. Also try suede and velvet jackets for maximum party appeal," he told IANS.
There are other options too depending on the mood and the setting.
"Classic Indian patterns and style lines such as angrakha jackets, 'bandi'-style 'koti' and asymmetrical panelled jackets work well for a more Indo-Boho appeal. Bow ties for guys are in trend with contrasting funky graphic socks. Woollen fedora (hat) and vintage watches also add a quirky element in regular dressing for men," Satam said.
Also, accessorising would not be a bad idea for men, especially when it comes to ethnic and fusion wear.
So, how about throwing in these options-a simple embroidered collar on a bandhgala jacket, a crushed silk stole, a brocade handkerchief, a classic brooch, pearl, silver or 'minakari' buttons and embroidered 'juttis'.
