The ever-stylish bow tie has been spotted on celebs like Ayushmann Khurrana, Amitabh Bachchan and Hollywood actor-singer Justin Timberlake. “Pair it with a pocket square, and experiment with prints, colours for a funkier look,” says fashion blogger Santu Misra. To go casual, pair it with a cool summer shirt and chinos.
It’s the best time to put on your party hat. They have always been a gentleman’s accessory, and like all things retro, they are back in fashion, with the fedora being a hot favourite.“If your trousers are a dark shade and your shirt is a light shade, try and match your bowtie and hat with your trouser colour,” says designer Rajat Tangri.
Glasses are mostly considered a necessity, rather than a fashion accessory. But, you can up your style quotient with a perfect pair. Choose the frames according to your face shape and outfit. Opt for wayfarers for a semi-formal look or coloured aviators for a casual one.
A good handbag is a must to top a smart outfit. A stylish laptop bag or sling can jazz up your entire look. According to designer Rahul Mishra, “Your bag should be profession specific.” Smart wallets make for a good impression too. Leather slings are perfect for office. For a casual look, opt for a cool graphic canvas sling.
Scarves can go a long way if you are doing glam. “Go for scarves in tulle and opt for solids instead of checks,” says designer Rahul Mishra. Casually wrap the scarf around your neck and team with a T-shirt and jodhpuris for a day look, or pair a blazer, trouser with a T-shirt and throw on a bandhani dupatta for a smart fusion look.
