Yes, the time has come again to turn blue. Team India is out on the cricket field, hunting for glory, and you’re all set to cheer them with gusto. But this year when you don the team jersey why not do it with a little twist? “Just because you’re going to wear the official jersey doesn’t mean you can’t style it up to look cool. It’s just a matter of pairing the right stuff with it,” says designer Anand Bhushan.
However, that doesn’t mean you need to dress up like a hipster. Keep comfort foremost and mix and match the right accessories and clothes to spruce up the jersey. Just follow this full-proof guide and whether you’re out cheering the Indian cricket team at a stadium or at your local bar, we promise you’ll look as stellar as our style savvy players.
