Sidharth Malhotra in Kapoor & Sons

There has been scarcity of good style guides this year buy fortunately this month the movie ‘Kapoor & Sons’ has some quality looks which can help you style yourself with the latest trend. This style guide features Sidharth Malhotra and Fawad Khan and they have made sure that they wear great regular and party looks throughout the movie. I really loved the way the concept of layers being portrayed in the movie, its something worth giving a notice. The costume designer has picked very good combinations for clothing wherever necessary and would be a great idea to replicate these combinations for better style.

1.Layers Can Never go Out of trend

Men generally dont need designer wear, its basically the repetition of the same old stuff but with different colour combination. A dark shade shirt layered over a white tee is how we get the hangout look nowadays.

Sweatshirt along with printed tee, blue sweatshirt over grey tee seems to be a legit hangout look option. This is one trendy college look I have seen in recent times.

Jeans as the bottom wear along with analog watch and bracelet could be some cool options for this look. Watch out that you should go for sneakers for this look and not running shoes.

2. Keep it Dull, Stupid!

Dark shirt seem to be quite an influential piece of clothing in recent times, it enhances your overall look. No wonder why so many people love to wear black. Dark casual shirt along with regular denim jeans is the trendy casual look of recent time.

This is one of the best casual look I have been across. Dull shirts add the rugged feel to your overall look and thats why I am trying to add some dark clothes in my wardrobe nowadays. A Regular jeans along with white shoes and yeah some accessories like watch and bracelet might come to rescue. I have personally observed that white running shoes can be very helpful while styling for casual look which include dull shirt and jeans.

3. Go for Striped Tee

I generally never opt for stripped tees but this look has made me rethink my thought. Fawad wears a GunMetal Watch and it look absolutely fantastic as it blends quite well with this look.

4. Start Collecting Plain tees

People nowadays are obsessed with wearing a tee with quote, to stand out among the crowd go for the new trend of plain tees. Its really helps to show your muscularity and attract women. A plain tee paired with jeans is just what you need right now.

Grey seems to be a pretty good option for plain tee, though you have other options like Black and White. Apart from these its just grey which feels good. If you opt for plain tees opt for these three and leave the rest.

Mandarin collar shirts seem to be everyones favourite at the moment. I already have a white and a black one in my wardrobe, they are really great at the time of short notice rescue for styling. The only problem is white attracts dirt and yeah you gotta take too much care not to spoil it hence I prefer to go black.

Light shades are not just limited to tees, but if you dont want the rugged look and instead go for the gentleman look then opt for light shaded shirt along with denim jeans. If you go for chino then prefer it to be a blue chino, other colours are just not worth it. Lastly never wear sneakers or running shoes with this one, instead wear a brown boot it would be perfect.

5.Party Looks Have a New Way of Styling

Its a designer wear, just forget this. Out of your reach 😛

This look can somewhat be replicated, not that tough. Blazer over t-shirt is the concept. Not a regular tee but a printed one and yeah a bracelet and a watch thats all you need folks.

Though the denim can be managed but the shirt/t-shirt is just so designer made that it becomes difficult to get one. Even though Sidharth parties with this look I would instead prefer to go with a tee and jeans for party just like in the movie Wake Up Sid. Parties are organised to be enjoyed and not to flaunt your clothing coz ultimately its not just your clothes but the attitude you wear at the party which will get you chicks.


Its not tough to style in today’s world for men. We have very few categories to choose the right clothing from but the tricky part is how do you manage to pick the right one.

This guide just helps you deal exactly with such issue. It deals with the most basic looks a guy needs to nurture his style.
