New Delhi

All you gentlemen out there, what’s your go-to sharp look for most occasions? A black tuxedo and a white shirt, we’re guessing. Let’s stick to the hues, but by following these fashion cues! Here’s helping you be at your dandy best, while keeping in sync with the 2017 monochrome trend. Not sure if these styles would suit you? Give them a try, we say.

‘Mesh’ed up

A mesh leather jacket teamed with a pair of white cotton pants is all you need to bring out the sexy in you, a la our model Gaurav Mavi. You can accessorise this bold yet fun look with a velvet bag, and a pair of circular sunnies, and you, my friend, is set to ace street style.

The globetrotter

While our model Gaurav Mavi is wearing an elaborate white jumpsuit with drapes, we have added the black element by underlying his eyes with kohl, and pairing the outfit with black shoes. Simple, right?

Being nomadic

This look showcased on the ramp by designer Ujjawal Dubey exemplifies the nomad in most of us. The asymmetrical kurta teamed with cowl pants and white sneakers redefines desi cool style. Also, a shout out to that salt and pepper beard!

A draped saga

While the draped kurta couldn’t just be given a miss, team it with white parallel pants and a monochrome jacket to make a classy statement. Style it with black hand beads and strut in style.
