Accidentally burning your favourite tee is not the way to increase the ‘hotness quotient’ of your look.

I am accused of not featuring menswear at Razmatazz. Guilty as charged (I guess) but fashion for men is a conservative business when compared to the vast coverage of womenswear. Partly because designers bring limited variation and innovation to their garments.

Men often stand on either extremes of the fashion spectrum –weird and eccentric like Ranveer Singh or expressionless and boring like Tusshar Kapoor (purely because anything expressionless and boring is synonymous with Tusshar Kapoor to me). Nonetheless, men can have a style which is evergreen, speaks for their first impression and a robust personality. Here are top five rules to adhere to for being perennially stylish.

TREAT YOUR CLOTHES WITH RESPECT

This may sound like excess work for boys but it is imperative to iron clothes and place them on hangers. The clothes will last you longer and look new as ever.

NOTHING TOPS A PERFECT FIT

Most of you boys’ love wearing baggy clothes but the best way to improve your style quotient is by wearing outfits which fit you perfectly. Make sure that you don’t go for something tight but right.

A SHARP PAIR OF SHOES IS IRREPLACEABLE

As Christian Louboutin rightly said, “Shoes transform your body language and attitude. They lift you physically and emotionally.” Perhaps not a bad idea to invest in a pair of sharp and clean shoes.

IT'S QUALITY OVER QUANTITY

Shopping for menswear is generally expensive than womenswear. So why not invest in quality classic pieces such as core white and blue shirts, sober ties, trousers, and textured jackets. Pick the right backbones of a precise outfit which is easy to mix and match.

GIVE IMPORTANCE TO STYLE AND IMAGE

We live in an age where every book is judged by its cover. Appearance is incumbent in making the first impression right. From the first date to important board meetings –dress to impress is the mantra for all.
