How to Dress Up like Ranveer Singh

You might be thinking… Why this topic? Not because he is my favourite but because he is an inspiration for the Gen-Next these days.

Chic, Cringe-worthy or Cool! What do I call him?  Hardly I have seen men experimenting with colour and bling but it is Ranveer Singh who doesn’t shy away from wearing shiny shirts, dhotis, skirts and even stepping out with kohl-lined eyes.

Ranveer Singh has turned to be a wild child of fashion in India. From vibrant patterns and neon to flamboyant colours and bling, you name it and he has worn it. Whether it is his red carpet appearances or airport looks, he stuns fashion police every time he steps out. Moreover, his OTT sunglasses should be given the credit for an additional quirk to his overall look.

Think of something that is conventional fashion, and you will see that Ranveer Singh’s style sense is something completely different and off-beat. But here are a few things I specifically love about his style.

Fashion is a way with which you can express your individuality. Ranveer Singh is not an average stylish man, he has created a statement for himself and even coined as one of the best-dressed men.

The best part is that his style is as tastefully eccentric as his personality, thanks in no small part to his always-ready-to-experiment stylist Nitasha Gaurav. Nitasha spills some of Ranveer’s style secrets. She says: “He loves to colour, he is flamboyant and extremely confident as a person. He is not looking for approval. And that immediately sets him free in a way that you can’t even imagine. He wears what he is drawn to. He likes to wear print on print on print. He is almost childlike, actually!

So, to dress up like Ranveer Singh, one should be Exuberant, classy, experimental and most importantly Be Confident.

Here are 5 styling tips to dress up in Ranveer Singh Style :

  1. Play with Prints: Ranveer Singh is never going to limit his options, and we can be sure of that. He is the one male celebrity in India, who never fails to hit the news regarding his outfits for public appearances. Whether it’s a sly comment or just appreciation, he has managed to impact many mindsets when it comes to fashion.

Style Tip: Don’t stick to the boring single colour outfits.  Experiment with different patterns like floral & polka dots, checks & stripes, animal prints etc.

Shop This Look : Koovs, Zara, Shivan & Narresh ,Aza Fashions.

2. Unique Textures: Forget the safe options, and try out some out-of-the-box textures to add dimension to a drab suit. Metallics, velvets, and suedes are all materials that Ranveer has worn to flaunt his personal style.

Style Tip: Try unique textures , it’s not compulsory to wear heavy suede & leather suits you can also try textures in the form of accessories like Knit ties (bumpy surface),Brogued shoes (decorated with punched holes), Suede shoes (not just for Elvis and pretty easy to take care of),Woven shoes and belt (made of interlaced leather strips), Leather jackets (from smooth to distressed),Tooled belts (solid leather with stamped designs),Silk pocket squares (shimmery-smooth texture). Be wary of mixing too much texture.  Textured accents with larger textured pieces such as a tweed suit and a knit tie, for example, makes you look downright woolly.

Shop this look: Rohit Bal , Manish Arora, Kanika Goyal .

3.Bright Colours: As mentioned by his stylist, Ranveer loves colours. But very few men love to experiment. If you look closely at the spelling of V.I.B.G.Y.O.R you will see R.A.N.V.E.E.R hidden in it. It was also somewhere around this time that children stopped purchasing crayon boxes and started purchasing Ranveer instead. If you’re not ready to go all out with patterns yet, take heed from Ranveer and opt for bolder colours like electric blue, yellow, orange instead. It will help you stand out from the crowd without being too over-the-top.

Style Tip: Spring and summer are the perfect seasons for having a little fun with your wardrobe. Fill your drawers with other awesome shades like mustard yellow, olive green, treetop, navy, and burnt orange. The sky is the limit here. Stick to your favourite hues, and venture out by exploring all of their endless varieties. If blue is your colour, go crazy with everything from baby blue to cobalt.

Shop this Look:Dior Men, Adidas Originals .

4.Bling is King: You all might have seen Ranveer wearing those Glittery Tracksuits. Ranveer was seen at an event in a bright and sparkly millennial pink bomber jacket, from Manish Arora. Shine & Glitter makes you look out of the Box.  Be it a maxi dress or blazer, there is more than one way to wear the sparkle and shine in it too.

Style Tip-  Glittery outfits have always been the best choice of evening parties. Sequins blazers in an evening party or an accessory can also make you look extravagant.

Shop This Look: Manish Arora Fashion

5.The Desi Munda: Ranveer Singh has routinely set my hearts racing when he does Indian clothing, owing to the fact that he’s god gift to Mankind and all. No one is as fearless and as fiercely original as he is. My most favourite traditional looks of Singh are: His Banglore Reception Look in Rohit Bal Ensemble.

StyleTip –If you are facing a lack of choices, take that black kurta out, pair it with your black lowers, and you are good to go. If you want to be experimental (Which I strongly Suggest), pair your kurta with – a) Patiala Pants, b) Aligarh pyjamas, c) Dhoti pants and and and … d) HAREMS! Not only are they comfortable, but also easy to carry and hassle-free. Feel stylish and comfortable. 

Shop This Look: Rohit Bal, Sabyasachi, Tarun Tahiliani.

Fashion is a way of doing something, and a popular trend. There will be trend followers and trendsetters, and I think Ranveer is definitely a trendsetter. He creates bold and fashionable pieces that stand out and encourage us to try something new too! He is daring and extravagant, wacky, but still manages to steal our hearts and words are not enough to describe his style.

I am waiting for the day when Ranveer starts his own clothing line and instead of being served the same old men’s fashion, I can see men wear more experimental and fun clothes. After all, why should girls have all the fun?

So lastly, let your outfit do the talking!! And be confident in whatever you wear, and you will get to Ranveer’s level. So what are you waiting for? Update your wardrobe and dress with no limits!!

5 Summer Shopping tips for Men | The VogueNaari

summer fashion for men

“Do you like Shopping ?”Men & women always have different views about shopping. According to a survey, most of the men get bored after 26 minutes of shopping, while it took women a full two hours. But let me also let you all know that there are also millions of men & women for whom these characteristics don’t apply. Here is a blog about 5 Summer shopping tips for men to make their Summer more stylised.

According to style experts, the RIGHT WAY to shop for clothes aligns way better with men’s preferences. Don’t you think so?

Summer & Fashion don’t always go hand in hand for men. Whether you want edgy, athletic, rugged, or anything in between, this is the Summer to step it up and make it happen.

Top 5 Summer Shopping Tips For Men:

1. Know your colour of the season:

Have an idea of what your wardrobe should contain. (Will be mentioned in my next blog)

While thinking about the wardrobe, the major factor to consider is your lifestyle, your profession & your environment. It’s basically what all clothing essentials you need to look great everyday?

Make sure your wardrobe is versatile. Most of the men have neutral colours like black, grey, navy blue & tan already in their wardrobe but during summer, soft summer colours are subtle, ethereal, calm, gentle & mysterious so you can go pastel colours like Yellow, mint green, Lilac, Grey, Sky Blue, Peach, Green,etc.

2. Buy a Good Pair of Shorts:

I know this is quite obvious but a good pair of shorts like chino shorts, denim short or athletic short is an essential of your summer wardrobe. While you buy a good pair of shorts few things are very essential like : they end just above knees, they don’t add excess bulk through cargo-like pockets ( for a good silhouette) , neither too tight nor too loose, basically the fit is very important for a perfect look.

3. Be Bold with your Choices:

Summer is the time to be braver with the choice of your attire & act simple as well as bold. Over the last three summers, mens wear has shoved us towards mens fashion being bolder.

Street style is now at par with couture. Rappers and sneakerheads aren’t just the inspiration, they’re the brain trust. And designers are operating at unprecedented levels of energy and innovating with boldness. With designers like Ujwal Dubey, Rajender Pratap Singh, Shantanu & Nikhil , Shivan & Narresh, Kunal Rawal who have established icons to the next generation – lead the charge at the third edition of the country’s premier menswear showcase. Invest in graphic tees, polo tshirts, plain light weight shirts with short sleeves.

Hence, you can try for bold prints, attractive silhouettes & colours.

4. Embrace the ease of Online Shopping:

Online Shopping is like “the easy button” for man friendly shopping. It is like the non-boring way of shopping. For those busy men or the confused ones, Online Shopping is the best way to get your summer essentials home. And the best part is you can quickly get comfortable with the logistics of ordering & returning items. But one disadvantage is that you can’t try before you buy. My advice would be firstly, know your perfect size, read the fabric details and you can happily get your package home.

Best online stores to buy men’s Clothing: Myntra, Jabong, Abof, Ajio, NNNow, Pernia’s Pop Up Shop, Snapdeal & Koovs.

5. Top Summer Essentials:

It is important to fill your wardrobe with summer essential basics like Statement T-shirts, streetwear inspired jackets. In terms of replacing your winter wear to summer wear, here are some shopping tips like replace your wool trousers by light weight, breathable cotton like Chinos & denims. As you progress from winter boots to sneakers & slippers. Sunscreen is very important for men for a hydrating skin.

Summer Wedding Tips:

  • Deciding what to wear to a wedding is a task. But not to worry, I have compiled few outfit ideas & summer shopping tips for men to see your wedding style soar this summer.

• Firstly, read the invitation properly as it is a guide to know if there is any specific dress code. Also, read the venue as if it is a beach wedding then a linen shirt, trousers & loafers worn socksless are ideal.

• Colour wise there are some options- Classic black or mid night blue, grey, beige or richer hues like cobalt or petrol blue. Wear pastel colours or light colours like white, peach, mint green & lemon yellow too.

•As for Accessories, black bow tie, cummerbund, small brooch , printed pocket square & a pair of perfectly shinned black shoes look our perfectly.

• A contemporary two-piece or three- piece suit (slim-fitting,minimal break, notch lapel) will make you look classy. Printed suits are also much in trend.

• Choosing the right fabric is very Important. Breathable materials like linen, cotton & blends of two serves well for weddings in hotter climes.

• Indo- western clothing is also much in trend these days because of the high- detailed embroidery ,unique silhouettes & drapes. You can wear draped kurtas, jodhpuri suit, nehru kurtas and waistcoats can make you look smart and dashing.

My favourite Summer Look: White shirt, blue denim & White Leather Sneakers are a winner for this summer.

When it comes to summer fashion, don’t sweat it up. Keep it light weight & functional.It’s the perfect time to experiment, because many of your peers probably aren’t going to bother trying. Hit June in style.
