Fall is about layering. The very mention of this season springs to mind the usual suspects: tweed jackets, mufflers, gloves and neck scarves in muted tones. However, this fall is not so subdued. Men’s fashion in India and across global runways has gone through a sea change with a daring visual language shaping up our collective tastes. As you kickstart the party season and entertain your friends and family in style, replenish your wardrobe with these key pieces.
If you are in Mumbai, pick one in a light fabric like cashmere. But if you are based in northern India, you can opt for more wooly fabrics. Either go for the two-button option or pick one with three buttons in a palette of midnight blue or steel grey. If you want to avoid looking too dressy, then pair it with a T-shirt or a V-neck. Match it with a pair of wine-toned brogues.
Blazer: A well-cut blazer that snuggly fits your shoulders is a great sartorial tool this fall. Wear it over a V-neck on a sunny day or a formal shirt for a night-out. Complete the look with a pair of denims or slim-fit pants in vibrant colours.
A nifty cardigan not just protects you from the nippy cold, but also serves as a great layering option while putting together a look. Wear it over an Oxford shirt or under a blazer and complete the look with a pair of stylish eyewear.
Bow tie: An interesting alternative to strait-laced ties, bow ties in vibrant colours and patterns such as nautical symbols or skull motifs are a great addition to your wardrobe.
Leather jacket: This season is perfect to bring out this nifty piece of clothing. Wear it with a pair of acid-washed denims as you take your bike on a spin.
Trench coat: This classic coat has been transformed in many ways over time. From the original double-breasted version to the current one with leather accented epaulets on the shoulders and arms, you have a wide variety to choose from.
They are not going out of the style radar anytime soon. They come in single or double buckles in a moody palette of bottle green, oxblood and classic greys and black. You can finish your Indian festive look—Jodhpur breeches and churidaars—with these beauties.
Mufflers/neck scarves: Pick one in classic styles such as houndstooth or plaid. Also, the way you wrap a neck scarf can also change your look. Keep it neat and elegant.
