Padma Raj Keshri, a Gen Next designer for Lakmé Fashion Week (LFW) Summer/Resort 2018, lists some tips for men to look cool this winter:

* Sport outfits in darker tones, including greys, yak brown, indigo, and darker blues, which are perfect for winter.

* Complete your look with winter accessories, including woollen neck warmers, hand mittens, or warmers that will keep you warm through winter.

Ruchika Sachdeva, the 2017/18 International Woolmark Prize global finalist, lists some tips for women:
