IN THE PUR‘SUIT’ OF FASHION
Forget the regular blue, black and grey suits. Make a strong sartorial choice by adding some quirk to your favourite ensemble
Suiting up is an art. Everyone cannot be a David Beckham or David Gandy when it comes to suiting up like a debonair, but the right mix and match of blazer, tie, shirt and shoes can make you look effortlessly dapper.
Whenever we think of suits, the basic colours that strike our mind are black, blue and grey. Instead of being monotonous, there’s a lot more that a suit can offer.
As you read on, take copious notes and make sure you draw admiration from all corners for the next time you opt for a suited and booted look.
COLOUR BLOCKED Execute the perfect colour blocking like our model Vivek Lazrous. He wears a Cuban-collared pastel pink shirt teamed with mintcoloured pants and brown blazer. The hues have a soothing effect to eyes. BELT IT UP Model Karan Jeet Rai Sharma is slaying this look in a navy blue kimonostyled jacket teamed with black pants and an off white turtle neck T-shirt. The white and black oxford shoes completes the look.

For this look, Karan Jeet Rai Sharma neatly tucks his checkered blazer inside his checkered pants. And adding that risque factor, bare your chest a little! The gladiator sandals make the styling perfect. PLAY WITH STRIPES Model Sunny Kotwal is wearing a vertical blue-and-white striped suit with a navy blue T-shirt. A pair of black sneakers completes the look. It’s perfect for your brunch date or a cruise vacation. SUITED AND BOOTED Model Piyush Rathi looks undeniably spiffy in the attire. The shirt with grey and white polka-dotted collar complements the striped suit and the skinny grey tie. A pair of tancoloured monk shoes finishes off the look. KEEP IT CASUAL Actor and reality TV star Priyank Sharma throws some swagger as he poses nonchalantly in a mandarine collared shirt with striped pants and off-white blazer. A floral pocket square spruces up the look. PICK PINK Express your confidence in pink like our model Robin Chaudhary, who is wearing a pink blazer teamed with pink pants. Those yellow loafers are adding a pop of colour to the look. He rocks the crimped hair too.
