Not So Formal

“A well tied tie is the first serious step in life”, said Oscar Wilde who tied his first at the age of two. Mr. Wilde probably wore his tie to achieve a more formal look since his intention was to take a ‘serious step’. And we agree that a tie is a must when it comes to men’s formal fashion. However, this does not limit the function and appeal of the tie.

The tie can be worn with your more casual shirts to prep up your everyday style. This works great for Fridays-at-work and at those dinners when looking good is important but you’d still want to keep it easy and casual. We say the tie is a great accessory and should be seen around more often and not just at the office.

Ways to Wear: The Henley

Remove the collars. Add three to four buttons to the placket and you have your Henley. There’s nothing like an easy ready-to-go look this shirt can give you this Summer.

  1. Wear your Henley with your old pair of denims for an everyday style.
  2. The unbuttoned look is sexy and stylish. Wear a tee underneath for a subtle layered accent.
  3. Another great thing about the Henley is that it looks good on its own and it looks really cool with a blazer too.
  4. Ecru/white chinos and your Henley are just the perfect couple.
  5. Throw a cardigan over and your Henley becomes your new evening style.

Why Colour Your Week

The colour you wear affects your happiness. It’s true.

At least, many people believe that the seven days of the week have their respective governing planets. Monday is named after the Moon, Tuesday is named after Mars, Wednesday after Mercury, Saturday after Saturn and so on. These planets are in turn linked to specific colours that are good for you. And even if you are a pragmatic, non-romantic, ‘grown up’ person, you will agree that wearing a little colour does cheer you up (besides making you look good).

White for purity and peace. Besides, it’s an essential color in your wardrobe.

Red signifies passion and love. Also, it’s bold and sexy.

Green brings you prosperity and it signifies regeneration besides being a Summer favourite.

Yellow symbolises enlightenment. The perfect colour for your sunny day out.

Indigo is mysterious. When you wear it, it’s sharp, fresh and chic.

Violet is regal and a lovely name. Don’t you feel special when you wear the colour?

Pink is happiness and love. The perfect colour on your day off.
