Life’s a Party: The ESSENTIALS of Casual Party dressing for Men

Now, it’s a Saturday and we all know tonight’s gonna be a good night 😉 but Men are so-o-oo full with work clothes, that you rarely find the right outfit when there’s a casual party calling at a friend’s terrace. I mean, you cant wear too jazzy or too white or too structured clothes cuz the party is on a Terrace, dude!!

So, coming back to the point when you know you have loads of work-wear like Shirts and a few blazers but NO casual stuff for a casual beer-party, but you still want to look good for all those ‘girls’-friends of your friends comin’ over, eh ;-). So, here is our best take on What to Wear to a Casual party.

A Denim Shirt is always handy.

Stripes never go out of fashion. Never for MEN.

Fitted Stripes & Chinos never make a Bad Casual.

MEN, are You Valentine Victims?

We are wondering how Men ever became these Victims?

How did the day of Valentines, from being a Celebration of love went onto becoming an “Obliged Expression” of love, where Men started to becoming victimized by Demands for roses, Requests for Hugs, Obligation to send Chocolates, Pressurized to Propose, Stifled to send Teddy Bears and Pushed to Promise??

Seven days of the week and all prompted towards Men..? Are Men supposed to do everything it takes in a relationship?

Are they the torch bearers of love, and Manli-ness and Initiative? And women get to enjoy everything without moving an inch of ar@e! It pretty much sounds like our Styling-Service where Men don’t get to move an inch of ar@e ;-)!

But seriously, we are wondering whether how did this happen? How celebrating Valentine slowly became a symbol of having a Heart and being a man, and how having a heart in a Man is now comparable to having balls to Love? Is having enough balls the new symbol of having a brave heart? Do men now need balls to love?

So yes, lets face it. Valentines is lovely no more! Valentines is wonderful no more!

We found this short comic strip from The Oatmeal who make funny cards and graphics, and thought we’ll share this with you! 😉 See what commoners like You and Us think of Valentines now.Valentine's Day

WEDDING ALERT: So what’re you wearing, a Sherwani or Tuxedo?

A lot of times, our fellow members pop the same question to us like, “My brother’s getting married, what should I wear?

And then come the doubts like, “I want to wear something formal but not western”; “I want to leave the blazer to Cocktail party”; “Don’t want to wear a coat- it’s too common!”; “Shaadi is all about ethnic wear…I want to try something different”; “Should I try a Kurta pyjama or a sherwani but not very groom-like!”.

We get many questions and a spoon full of doubts that range even higher like, “Women can wear heels to look taller, but if we wear high sole shoes we only look weird. So, how to look taller at a wedding?”. And guys, yes, today we’re in a pensive mood 😉 and we are concerned only about 2 things today-

  1. Sherwani, and
  2. How to look Taller in a Sherwani 😉

Sherwani makes most men look good. True Story.

Since you’re a guest so you don’t want to be shini-er than the groom I guess 😉 So, a stylish Sherwani or a great Kurta-pyjama or a great Kurta-Dhoti combination will not only make you look Different but also Chic.

(Yeah, so we’re a li’l objective today) And, here are some reasons to buy a Sherwani right away-

  1. It gives you natural length as the Kurta generally touches below your knees and gives you optically-illusive length
  2. Whatever design your Sherwani may be, the neck is generally a tapered placket, which makes your neck look slimmer and angular.
  3. You look warmer, friendlier and more approachable 😉 vis-à-vis a Suited man next to you!
  4. You break the convention of the Common by going traditional.
  5. It shows that you put some thought into your outfit and you’re smart not to be wearing a Blazer.
  6. The Juttis/ Mojaris for Men (worn together with a Sherwani) are a great relief to the eyes vis-à-vis the same old grey/black/brown shoes

Many a royal men wear Mojaris with a Sherwani

OK. Now lets get you a Cheat-Sheet to look Taller

1. Opt for Sherwani with a tapered placket instead of a bandh Gala

Sometimes a bad Bandh Gala leaves you Without a Neck 😉

2. Go for a readymade Dhoti,with a kurta so long that it stop at your knees. Churidaars look good too,just ensure that it doesn’t have too many rings at bottom.

A gorgeous Sherwani/Kurta likes a well fitted Churidaar

3. Opt for shinier/lighter color of the Churidaar than that of the Sherwani

4. Opt for smaller, wide-set prints on a Kurta than big block prints. Also choose lighter colors than darker ones like greys/browns etc.

This is something experimental but, Someone with height concerns, should try avoiding styles like these-

The dark color & Bad choice of Shoes stubs his height!

5. Lucknowi/Laknavi kurtas have a natural advantage as many a times, the chikankaari runs vertically, and hence the subtle length.

6. Focus on Kurtas that have embroidery stopping at the mid of your chest. It gives you more torso-area to keep the eyes fixed at the right areas of a Man 😉 we meant the ‘chest’!

7. Keep a Stole ALWAYS styled on one shoulder if you want to look taller. NEVER cross it on both as it cuts height

Men, a cross-styled Stole is NOT for you. Ever.

And last, Dhoti with a Sherwani is just so sexy that we cant deny but do NOT ever wear a Stole or a Dupatta alongLets keep something for women to protect their assets, shouldn’t we? 😉

Also, See how Mr Khan rolls it in Style with his many shades of Sherwanis.

Your Boss sucks! And so does his Sense of Fashion!

It’s time and again that we bump into our Bosses, and most of the times, we fashionable people end up talking about his BAD style of dressing! :-/ Not always in sarcasm, but sometimes in pity and sometimes in Mockery as well 😛

hahaha, infact, while we’re writing this, our fellow Stylist-Dev is animatedly talking about Girish, our Tech-Geek who is nicely built, tall and medium set and has a nice pair of back-knockers 😉 but still wears those God-forsaken Cargo pants !!!

And, there he goes today with his loose jeans with a SHINY (!!!) Blazer. 😦 Now, this is A pity. Why, Girish? <We hope he doesnt read our Blog as much as he does spend time on the website!)

Now, lets stop talking about Our Bosses and instead focus on some Bosses we’ve seen around! 😉 Go to these Gyms and the managers sit around with a great body and a chest to die for, but Alas! these young managers think showing off their moobs and cleavage is fashionable :-/ But darling readers, #Moobs Suck! and Male Cleavage Sucks bigger :-0 

Alright then, Guys. What we’re saying in a nutshell is, please DO NOT-

1. Wear Over-shiny Blazers. These Blazers are silvery-metallic-shiny-sparkly-satiny! Please Do NOT Buy them and if you did, then do NOT wear them! 😉

Too Shiny for my Eyes!

2. DON’T Wear Baggy pants, or Jeans that dont FIT you or Pants with multiple Pockets! This style is just NOT for 2013 and won’t come around soon anyways 😉

3 Things U Need: Life, Style & a Stylist. 😉

a. Find your Favorite Brands– Brands which fit you perfectly, which fall in your budget range and which speak your personal Style

b. Trust someone in the Business. It’s like, when you trust your friend who recently bought a Civic to guide you on which latest model to buy. Similarly, follow a Stylist or a Fashionable blogger you like, and trust his/her advice.

c. Experiment with Upmarket Brands once in a while. A lot of times, what you want to become is reflected by your clothes. Try including a high-power, high brand piece in your outfit to appear more powerful, more sophisticated at work.
