men wear shoes fashion

New Delhi, Dec 5: Winter is not meant to be dull and boring. In fact this can be that time of the year when one can explore their fashionable side and even the men can try that. Layering is the game for apparel in winter but don’t forget to team it up with right shoes to add the final touch to your ensemble.

Ankita Bajaj Shankar, Marketing Lead at Vans India and Harkirat Singh, Managing Director at Woodland lists down the tips to on the kind of shoes to wear this winter season

* White sneakers: White men’s trainers are a must if you want to wear something sporty yet trendy. One could argue that they get dirty but they go with everything and the colour gives us the option to play with it when you play with winter layering.

* Black casual shoes: It goes well if you are going for a monochromatic look this winter or your game is neutral colours. From high-tops to slip-ons to lace-ups, there is so much you can choose from.

* High top sneakers: If you have been eyeing that high top pair, now is your chance to get it. These shoes will keep your feet warm and at the same time add to your style quotient. Mix and match the print or the fabric of the shoe to suit your requirement: from leather to suede or print to plain.

* Leather lace up boots: Lace ups are a great look. These kind of boots go great with skinnier jeans. A nice pair of jeans, a t-shirt and some lace ups boots will put you head and shoulders above the other people in the room. Not only are they great winter boots, but they are great any season boots for men.

* Cap toe leather boots: Who said one couldn’t wear boots with formal attires. A cap-toe boot has the added advantage of extra leather on the toe, which gives it a little bit more protection from snow and rain. Plus, just as with cap-toe oxfords, it’s a nice added element of style.

* Chelsea boots: While Chelsea can come in either suede or smooth leather; the typical pair includes a leather sole, rounded toe box, and minimal stitching. If you’re looking to sharpen up your act however, both styling and the boot’s ankle height come into play. The taller ankle height is very on trend and adds a smarter feel for a sharper look. These look great when worn with slim jeans, a crisp white shirt and a smart wool coat

Knits to buy this winter season

Published

on

As winter is around the corner, it’s the time to opt for knits that can make you both warm and glamorous. 

Suvarna Kale, Head of Design at Blackberrys menswear and Sandeep Khapra, Head of Design – Menswear at Max Fashion, have shared tips for men who don’t want to compromise on style in winter.

* Solid knits: Pick a solid colour knitted pullover to wear under the blazer or over a shirt. They are lightweight and warm. The colour options are there to fulfil man of every taste.

Amplify your winter look with a solid coloured knitted quirky sweater. Experiment with different hemlines to bring out the fashionista in you. Solid knitwear is something that brings forth a sense of tradition with our current infatuation with all things knitwear. Wear them with track pants and loafers for a full-on lazy-Saturday look or pair it one with more sophisticated items to balance things out. Stick to plain colours and let your style make the statement.

* Knits: For the days it is super chilly, chunky knits are all that one needs. These are worn straight like jumpers or over a shirt for a formal look. You may want to choose these with patterns to add the fashion statement.

Pump up your winters with knit options which are perfectly fit for those chilly mornings. This is a perfect solution for the generation that is uniquely wanderer and breaks the monotony. One of many great things about a decent piece of knitwear is how transitional it is between styles and occasions. For example, a casual look may consist of jeans and a pair of Converse, but a formal look could allow you a look consisting of tailored trousers and smart shoes.

* Patterned knits: For the formal, for casual and for everything else, patterns are for everyone. The trick here is to keep the shirt and the bottoms on the mellow side, as the knit will draw the statement out.

With checks being one of the big trends this season, delve into an Indian take to the story with a collection of jackets, capes, dresses with a play on hemlines and silhouettes. When it comes to shopping for basics, one item that frequently pops up on many wish lists is a good patterned knitted sweater. In recent years, it’s become the must-have piece for every fashionista.

* Layer it up with sleeveless knits: Checks, floral, linear, blocks or every other pattern can be seen on these versatile knits. Wear it over a shirt, carry them along with a blazer. The multiple contrasting layers lend a magical appeal to your winter outfit.

This is a perfect solution for the generation that is uniquely rebellious and breaks the monotony. They are the perfect amount of warm and fashionable, if you dress them up with ripped jeans and ankle boots.
