Accessorizing Your Traditional Avatar
Shoes make a man and accessories completes the outfit are clichés for a reason. Add finesse to your traditional clothes by accessorizing them well and step in style by wearing suave shoes. These add instant style with subtle touches.
Accessorize with colors. Do not shy away from embracing them. Dive into the rich hues of the season’s brightest colors. As they, can go a long way in adding tidbits to your look. Wrap it up with a nice scarf. Use this around your neck if the intention is casual or drape a neat turban to adorn your head for a glamorous finish. Be bold and try printed scarfs. They add instant sophistication to what could otherwise be a completely traditional take.
Add a little bit of zing by incorporating small but statement pieces of accessories like pocket squares, watches, chain links from your breast pocket to shirt buttons and military badges.
Shoes are the biggest indicators of your personality so do not be boring by opting the regular Kholapuris or Jhootis. Get experimental by teaming your traditional ensemble with loafers made in velvet or slip into smart pair oxfords. Open feet sandals are also a good choice but stay away from floaters or anything that is too casual. Do not limit yourself to the color black. If too much color is not your style then try different basic colors along with blacks like the greys, whites, browns and blues. Only rule here is the color should be congruent with the color of your outfit.
So overall, learn to manage your accessories and create a whole new dimension to traditional dressing. Accessorizing correctly will bring out the highlights in your outfit. Invest in key statements piece and you can be swag.Image credit: Image 1 - vanheusenindia.com, Image 2 - stylefuse, Image 3 - weddingsutra.com, Image 4 - fdci.org
