It’s that time of the year when drizzle or downpour acts as a dampener. But surely you want to be a head-turner even if it looks so grey and dreary. Yes, the male peacock is strutting about in sparkly jewels that spell class. Be a man of the moment by taking stylish cues from Bollywood’s trendsetters.
Here’s a look at the jewelry style quotient of our B-town’s dapper dudes.
It is definitely a new trend for millennial men in India. Take a cue from 52-year-old Aamir Khan whose nose piercing picture on Instagram has social media excited. Mr Perfectionist Khan, who is known for his dramatic transformations in films like Ghajini, Dhoom 3 and Dangal has gone a step ahead by sporting a nose stud for his upcoming film Thugs of Hindostan.
Trend alert: Yes, male nose stud scream fashion and not so much of a rebellion. Though not office-friendly, keep it effortlessly cool by opting for a silver nose stud with a white tee and jeans.
A much-loved actor with a charismatic style, Tiger Shroff is not just known for his well-toned body. The Heropanti actor likes to give a spin to his mundane basics by flaunting his lucky taviz (charm). Or, how about a cool simple chain sported by Ranbir Kapoor in the film Ae Dil Hai Mushkil teamed with uber-cool jackets.
Trend alert: Step outside the norm. Decorative, functional or purely religious, opt for neckpiece that makes a statement. If you have the confidence, layer it with longer chains.
Remember the famed friendship band in Kuch Kuch Hota Hai triggering fashion statement? Yes, you can stay on trend with something as powerful as Shah Rukh Khan’s black charm bracelet in Dilwale or the turquoise stone and silver bracelet of Salman Khan that spells good luck charm.
Trend alert: Keep it simple and understated. Stack up multiple cord bracelets or wear one chunky metal piece.
Trendy yet comfortable, actor Ayushman Khurana is a risk taker when it comes to fashion. And without any doubt he is the best dressed man in Bollywood right now. For high-voltage evening wear, he likes to raise the style bar by opting for fashionable suits accessorised with chic cufflinks.
Trend alert: Choose the cufflinks according to the occasion. Apart from French cuffs for a dressy shirt, try the sports-inspired cuffs paired with distressed denims for a casual day look.
Men wearing earrings is nothing new. From loops to studs, earrings make for a hot style statement. Ranbir Kapoor who can pull of the earring look with aplomb believes that simplicity is key. We also can’t stop drooling over Aamir Khan’s nerdy look with metal earrings.
Trend alert: Flaunt one earring if it is bold and shiny. Stick to small studs or hoops paired with a tee and jeans for a less formal look.
