Focus: Style Resolution for 2013

As regular readers of this site, I assume there is a certain level of trust between us that allows you to follow our advice and suggestions without really having to worry that we’re sending you down the wrong path.

Here are our Personal New Year’s Style Resolutions-

1. Purchase Some Chelsea Boots:   An easy pair of shoes, we’ll wear them with indigo jeans, any number of Oxford or plaid shirts and polos. A great addition to any man’s wardrobe.

2. Buy Some Trainers:   Yes, we love them. We will be wearing them with skinny jeans, varsity jacket or plaid overshirt and tees. Nothing crazy, nothing difficult! Just comfortable and casual and a bit more fashionable than usual. Yes.

Trainers- Casual and Classy. 2013, here I am.

3. Invest In My First Leather:   Leather jacket is the kind of thing that will stay with you for years and years and will only get better with age, eventually becoming totally unique to you. And, when we finally discover our perfect leather jacket, we’ll be wearing it with jeans, plain tees and desert boots, or maybe even Chelsea boots (if we’ve found them by then). Sanjeev gives a <sigh> 😉

Leather Jacket is like a Soul-Mate. It'll stay with you for years and is UNIQUE to you! StyleSaute can help 'You' find it.

Men: SIX absolutely “OUT OF STYLE” trends you should phase out of your wardrobe NOW!

1. Square-toe Shoes

If you’re only going to ditch one of the items on the list, make it this. Nothing screams late 90′s more than this flat-footed and so antequated, square dress shoes. Opt for the sexy narrow tipped brogues like these brown one instead, so very available at Aldo and Woodlands in India!

2. Wrap Around Sunglasses

Some sunglasses are timeless, or come and go frequently, like the Aviators, Wayfarers or ClubMasters, but these hideous wrap around sunglasses from the 1990s just gotta go, dude! Opt for these  Ray Bans instead!

3.Half Sneaker Shoes

Somewhere stuck in the middle are the semi-sneaker and semi-square tipped shoes like these. These  Grand-dad style shoes might be close to your grand-dad’s heart but definitely not ours. Let this pair go off your closet, sadly but truly. Demise of an era, it is. Instead try these super-classy desert shoes, called “Chukka Boots” in brown from ASOS. They go well with almost every jeans and can look fierce and cute both!

4. Baggy Cargo Shorts

Baggy cargo shorts, made infamous by Abercrombie & Fitch had their time, but like many things these days, the look is trimmer and more fitted. Pick up some flat front shorts from United Colors of Benetton anywhere or from our Myntra, or Join now at signup.stylesaute.com and we’ll create a ‘sexy shorts & Polos’ look for you.

5. Muffin top aka LOOSE-shirts

Guys, please believe the girls when they give your loosely loose shirts those disparagingly angled looks cuz nothing looks worse than a muffin top and blousy sleeves. It’s time to lay your hands on the new cuts available at many Mens formal wear brands go by names like slim cut, tailored fit, modern fit, and athletic fit. Try your hands here or drop us an email at Shruti@stylesaute.com and she’ll buy one for you in your size and favorite color! 🙂

6. Really wide clown ties

The skinnier your tie, the less formal it becomes, so if you’re trying to rock the casual tie, pick one that’s looks the slimmest in your wardrobe, but Wide Ties also gotta go man! They should’ve gone-long long ago, but we’re still here writing about it! On the best bet, your tie should ideally measure 3 inches or less at its widest point, and even then, it’s pretty freakin’ wide! Try something again from Myntra here
