How to wear them:

THE PARISIAN KNOT

Knot it like Beckham.

1. Fold the scarf lengthwise
2.  Drape it around your neck
3. Insert the loose ends through the looped end and gently pull through

Stylist’s note: Make sure, there’s only one knot and is neither too tight nor too lose!

Take it Easy.

  1. Drape the scarf around your neck making sure one side is longer than the other
  2. Wrap the longer end around your neck – not too tight! – and let it hang

Suit it to the Occasion.

  1. 1. Drape scarf around your neck
  2. 2. Add jacket on top and button

Stylist’s note: A Classic style, best suited with professional attires! Don’t worry about the ends below the buttons, so long as they end around the bottom of the suit jacket. Get creative with a print like the polka dots above

Last: THE INFINITY SCARF

Easy & Simple: Just wear with jackets/coats

Pretty self-explanatory, right? Infinity scarves are really simple to use. Simply put it round your neck and you’re good to go! (Loop it twice if it’s long enough)

Stylist’s note: The infinity scarf is generally made of thick wool or a chunky knit, so wait til it’s really cold and you can wear yours with a winter coat. Don’t toss it over a Sweater or a hoodie, as both of them don’t really go together.

 

Real Question: I’m straight out of College and have got a brand new job. What bare minimums should I buy for Work?

Here’s what to buy, and the order to buy it in. I’m aiming for value here, so this will run you well under Rs 20k all told, and you’ll have the pieces for about 15 different outfits.

  1. 1x brown oxford or blucher shoes.  A lightly-used pair of brogues, lace up brown shoes from Woods or Aldo or Zara should do it for you. Steve Madden can be extremely attractive but expensive.
  2. 3x oxford shirts. One white, one blue, one with a simple pattern. Look for BlackBerrys, UCB, Allen Solly, TopShop, F&O, American Apparel.
  3. 2x Chinos. Go to ZARA and Benetton again.
  4. 1x Navy blazer. Jackets are very difficult to fit, so you’re best off buying in a store. H&M, ASOS, Van Heusen, Louis Phillipe could be your good bets.
  5. 1x GOOD jeans.  Gap Selvage in classic or slim cut can be looked into.  Levi’s 514 are also a good choice.  As dark a wash as possible, without any “distressed” details or extraneous pockets.
  6. Grey v-neck sweater or cardigan. Look only in international brands as none of the Indian brands actually sell one!
  7. Accessories: Stick to solid ties in grey, navy, and burgundy. Keep your jewelry to a 2 piece MAXIMUM. Watches count as jewelry. Go for collar stays, belts from Hidesign and Hugo Boss accessories. Calvin Klein metals can be tried.
  8. Another pair of shoes (black)
  9. Another jacket (grey)
