Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani: Style Guide

Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani is a movie which revolves around the life of Bunny aka. Ranbir Kapoor who is portrayed to be an independent guy who does not believe in living like normal people instead he wishes to life for his passion. He is a guy who never backs out of problems instead faces every moment of lif with confidence. He loves to go on adventurous trips and is a travel freak and that is the reason why he considers travelling his passion and dreams to travel around the world. It is his sporting and care free attitude which makes him popular wherever he goes be it school or work place, every one seems to love him. He lives for the moment and want to make every moment count in his life. To style such an extraordinary character there are a ton of looks for various instances and occasions which I believe will help you to replicate and stand out among the crowd. The looks are focussed on a guy which belongs between the age group of around 20 to 30 years, so if you are between this then thumbs up mate! for others who dont fit this range you can try out the looks which you feel will look good on you.

Screen Shot 2015-11-18 at 11.58.34 PM Now this look shows that even while doing internship he manages to enjoy every moment of life, the act of showing a dance while doing internship in the movie shows that he is ready to take challenges in life, he is ready to do stuffs which he generally never does and this is what make him so special. Hence the look given here is a tough guy look who can handle any situation which we can notice if we look at the layers of jacket over casual shirt with a t-shirt inside. A cargo along with these layers make the tough guy look more appealing and makes the one who looks at you feel that you are a guy someone can trust for work. To make him look cool and match the present generation he has a headset around his neck. With this look you ca present yourself as a dominating guy who is independent and lives to accomplish his dream without anyones support. If you are looking to go for a place like work place, where you feel that showing a dominating attitude along with coolness will work in your favour then you must try this look. Screen Shot 2015-11-19 at 12.19.44 AM Now this is the look which is something extraordinary, it is one of my personal favourite. It is focussed to be a travel look with a complete package of making you look cool and confident. This is one of the coolest outfit I have seem by some guy while travelling. This loom will make you look like a badass guy who can play it cool with girls in-short a flit machine. Layering up a casual shirt over a mandarin collar shirt is one of the rare types you will see while styling and Ranbir Kapoor proves to make this look stunning with his  attitude in body language while carrying this look. A black analog watch along with a handy cam will give you a great feel of this look. You need to have a cargo pant for this look, which will make you even more badass as it shows your toughness outside With this look Ranbir shows his character as a master in flirting and has a very open mentality about life and people. He doesn’t think much before saying and thus says whatever he feels at the go, he can even be aggressive at time so this look is the best one to match all these qualities. Get this look if you want to look tough, cool and badass at the same time while travelling or going on for hangout with friends. Screen Shot 2015-11-19 at 12.43.37 AM A jacket over t-shirt and a cargo along with these would look quite familiar to  you if you have seen the movie as it resembles the trekking look. This look seems to be an ideal one to show leadership quality within you, trust me this quality could end you up with many girls interested in you during the trekking. But if you actually want to have the leadership quality within you then you should never give more priority to girls for passion. I know its a bit difficult to control your stare when you see the girls who are ‘9’ or ’10’ but if you can control your emotions you are the boss. This look will help you justify this fact of you being one of those leader no one of your friends/family have ever seen. This look is for adventure purpose, if you use this somewhere else it will not be that effective. Screen Shot 2015-11-19 at 12.42.08 AM If you observe there is use of cargo pants through out the movie to give the character of Ranbir Kapoor a tough look, with the days passing by I guess this trend is not given much value but I think this is totally unfair its better you get out of the trouser and jeans world and try these instead and feel the difference. A light shaded cargo is the one mostly preferred in this movie, and according to me it was a great choice. I have tried a very few shades when it comes to cargo pants and some of them were shades of grey and a brown one. This is definitely worth trying. Screen Shot 2015-11-19 at 12.47.10 AM Now this is where bunny proves his leadership quality, he arranges for parties by hunting and finding interesting events nearby. If you are a fan of his character then this is one bonus tip for you to try and arrange for parties as this proves you to be more socialite and trust me girl like a socialite more than any other guy.This look shows that he never accepts he is wrong and likes to make new friends where ever he goes. This look will make you look like a cool dude, care free and full of life. A casual checkered shirt over a printed tee along with a cargo pants serves the purpose even this time. This is one of my favourite looks and seems to be quite effective to make you look cool and confident at the same time. The colour combination is the most effective part of everything, dont forget to break that. If you look at the body language of Ranbir here you will understand why I am telling you to build up leadership quality, see his arms stretched from left to right and holding a glass of drink, this indicates his confidence while addressing to people in the crowd. This look will be most effective when you are with a bunch of unknown people and who are having a first impression about you, you will definitely set the stage on fire with this look. Screen Shot 2015-11-19 at 12.56.45 AM Bunny is a character who loves himself more than any other one, this is the main reason why he is good at flirting, normal guys get trapped for beautiful girls because they dont think they look good and just dont love themselves buy bunny loves himself more so he has no problem flirting with girls just to kill his time. He is one of those guys no one can guess to be a philosophical guy at night and this look can be achieved with a hoody aka. sweatshirt. Experimenting with colours of sweatshirt is one thing I have in my fashion bucket list. I have just tried the blue sweatshirt but I am looking forward to try this one. Colours like orange or red of sweatshirts will make you look cute and someone who has some deep questions about life. I guess this sweatshirt is one of those night oriented sweatshirts which I would avoid to wear during day time. Wear this if you have a girlfriend but if you are single then try not to portray yourself as cute and wear dark colours. Screen Shot 2015-11-19 at 1.02.02 AM With this look Ranbir feels like a bit more of philosophical type, who is trying to understand the feelings he is having in present times. This look is a trekking look and to make it more stylish a sleeveless jacket is worn over a sweatshirt, something we dont see people wearing normally.This is somewhat like a romeo look to me, a person in love. If someone is in the same situation while trekking then go for this look. This look would work best for hangout with friends at cold places.

Screen Shot 2015-11-19 at 1.05.24 AMNow this is the continuation of the previous type of look, in the movie it is the look you prefer when you take a pause while trekking high mountains with snow. The same concept is used here but with a tweak, instead of a sweatshirt there is use of jacket over a causal shirt. You can match this look with a dark denim jeans or you can even try chinos. This is the look which wont take much of your time to get ready plus there is a possibility of you already having stuffs to get this look.

Screen Shot 2015-11-19 at 1.07.55 AMAlways be the centre of attraction of the crowd, that is what Ranbir Kapoor has done if you see this image carefully, he is for sure an attention seeker and I suggest that even you should try to become like this. Style yourself like him with the shirt and jacket along with blue shades for the winter look and get into the centre of the picture with your friends. While getting the sanp clicked make sure you show some energy by stretching your hands on both the sides just like Bunny does which is called the energy pose which will justify your fashion sense and make you the one people will focus more on, while looking at the pics. Picking up a blue shades glares have a very effective combination with snow so I personally recommend you to get these before you go for a trek on places where snow exists.Screen Shot 2015-11-19 at 1.12.13 AMThe best part about layers is that you can experiment any amount of colours(basically dull colours) and that is what showed in this look, here there are three components of the layer the first one being dark t-shirt over a casual checkered shirt and ultimately a leather jacket. Make sure that you use cargo pant as bottom wear, now as seen in the movie this look is perfect one for the one who likes to do flirting every now and then.   Screen Shot 2015-11-19 at 1.24.45 AMNow this look is the travel style look, for him its all about his passion and thus he climbs up this hill which is claimed to be haunted. This look shows that he is confident and passionate about whatever he does and thus he prepares to take on every adventure in life.With this look he shows that when he said he wanted to live a life in which each day should be so exciting that I could feel my adrenaline rush, he actually meant it. for him life is all about passion which makes him different from common people who follow the 22 tak padhai wala policy. This look is for all those who want to climb the hill top and scream loudly with excitement.Screen Shot 2015-11-19 at 1.30.28 AMThis look is the best and comfortable look while travelling, its just a causal shirt with jeans and a jacket to prevent the cold. There is not much styling you can do in the bus or any other travel medium so prefer to wear this while travelling and once you reach the destination make sure you style yourself for hangouts and photo sessions at the travel destination once you reach your hotel or rest place. Remember this rule and just wear comfortable and casual wear while travelling.

Screen Shot 2015-11-19 at 1.46.27 AMNow this is that point in his life when he detaches himself from ending up a normal life with non passionate friends and leaves for adventure in US. He gets out of his comfort zone to grab new opportunities in life. It is his decision to controls emotions and chooses his passion over love, and this tattoo describes his state of mind in a very cool way, it is one of my  personal favourite tattoo and I wish that if I ever make a tattoo then it will be this one for sure.

Screen Shot 2015-11-19 at 1.53.35 AM With this look he shows that when he said he wanted to live a life in which each day should be so exciting that I could feel my adrenaline rush, he actually meant it. Here he tries to adapt to new environment and new people and thus works his heart out for his passion. Black colour full sleeve t-shirt indicates that he has become a person who has nothing left in his life except his dream to travel around the world and even he is accustomed to it now.With this look he tries to look more mature with his beard and the use of ear stud.

Screen Shot 2015-11-19 at 1.51.01 AMThe reason why I have included this look is for my fellow friends who love photography, this look is a dream look for these guys. This look makes him look like a confident and professional photographer, its the look for every passionate photographer is here and a black t-shirt with a cargo makes it happen, just get the proper travel bag along with a DSLR and tripod and I guess you are done. Start the photography in style mate!

Screen Shot 2015-11-19 at 1.57.34 AMNow there is a series of his images while travelling and shooting episodes for this travel company, As I taught you earlier to style in the most comfortable format when you are travelling and getting clicked is not an objective, hence here there is use of just shirt along with regular denim jeans. Here he has picked a solid casual shirt even you can do the same with more colours. This look shows him as a guy who absorbs every changing phase of life and has becomes more serious towards his passion.

Screen Shot 2015-11-19 at 1.59.19 AM

It is one of the same travel looks with just the modification of sweatshirt instead of a casual shirt. In the movie there are only two looks to be promoted, 1.Casual shirt and Jeans Look and 2. Sweatshirt along with Jeans Look.
Screen Shot 2015-11-19 at 1.59.28 AMTo complement a travel look it is important not to forget about the accessories which you can have, getting an analog watch and sunglasses are one of the best accessories options to make any look more worthy. My preference for sunglasses are aviators but for every individual it is different according to the shape of face you have.
Screen Shot 2015-11-19 at 1.59.43 AMJust look closely and you will see that there is use of only plain solid colours for the shirt and it seems that solid colours indeed look pretty impressive while travel, if you dont have solid pattern shirt then get yourself a few and get ready for a comfortable journey while travelling with style.
Screen Shot 2015-11-19 at 2.10.37 AMBunny is a guy who lives to his immediate surrounding and ditches thoughts of old memories for passion as he believes in moving forward in life instead of thinking of past and crying. So if you like this kind of mentality then these solid t-shirts/ shirts will help you say this without even speaking about it verbally. Its an innovative travel look by Ranbir in YJHD.

Screen Shot 2015-11-19 at 2.20.41 AMThis is that time in life when Ranbir realises that be has become a workaholic and has forgot to live life till the fullest, thats when he bangs a friends wedding and this is his look at the cocktail party. He is a guy who opposes marriage and promotes being single as according to him after marriage girls become villain of guys life. This look is one of the top preferred look for cocktail parties and this look should not be mixed up with wedding ceremony look. Its pretty easy to get this look as it is the most common one which people prefer nowadays, a solid white formal shirt along with a blazer and a narrow tie. Make sure that your blazer and trouser are stitched by a good tailor for best fitting as this is something what the rest dont do and suffer.

Screen Shot 2015-11-19 at 2.26.10 AMThe wedding phase is a pretty enjoyable phase and the best clothing during this period is a kurta pyjama look. It is an indisputable fact that you should wear kurta all the time during the preparation work for traditional ceremonies are going on.

Screen Shot 2015-11-19 at 2.27.43 AMNow it depends on what type of kurta do you like, there are basically 4 types of kurtas namely 1. Short Kurtas 2.Long Kurtas 3.Pathani Kurtas and 4.Dhoti Kurtas . The kurta showed in this look is a Pathani Kurta and I really seem to like these, a watch along with Pathani kurta and matching pyjama is worth having the entire marriage season. In the given look even Bunny seems to be greeting guests with this look, give this look a try while you are associated with the entire process of wedding preparation.
Screen Shot 2015-11-19 at 2.36.12 AMEven here we can see that a Pathani Kurta is shown but this time with a different colour, try to have a couple of kurta in your wardrobe for such events as they give you a traditional feel for the wedding. I really like the black analog watch with this look, I recently bought the similar kind of watch by Casio inspired by this look. At this phase of life Bunny seems to have neglected his friends and family for his dream,life and career and thus he faces the truth of being selfish, but still has a bit of over confidence about the work he does. If you are going to be involved in a wedding sooner or later then these two looks are the one you should really care about.Screen Shot 2015-11-19 at 2.44.33 AMThere is something really cool about Ranbir in Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani which I appreciate the whole time, its his ready to do anything anywhere attitude and thus he never hesitates to wear anything or stuffs how ever the idea might sound to be crazy. It is this quality which you should always have and it will even shape your personality in a good way, you will become more confident in life and will be the centre of the crowd and prove to be more influential. Even though this look is not much of my time, it maybe due to the fact that I dont like to prefer sparkling or glittering clothes but for those who like the look, go for it. Experimenting is a different thing and preference is something different. First you should experiment the clothing and eventually when you look at the mirror you will know that it should be your preference or not.

Screen Shot 2015-11-19 at 2.53.12 AMAt some point of time in your life you realises that even if we drive life at full speed there are a few things which will be left so instead its better to sit back and enjoy some moments of life. Its the same stage for Ranbir Kapoor, here he seems to be wearing one of the most common dress of an Indian Men i.e white Shirt, blue Jeans and brown shoe. It is one of those lovely option you have when you cant figure out what to wear. I consider this as a backup wardrobe when I seem to run out of ideas. This is simple and effective at the same time.

Screen Shot 2015-11-19 at 3.03.55 AMThis look is a good guy look and according to the movie he wears this when he becomes more caring and tries to make people happy coz of the lack of attention he gave to people in the past. A blue shaded casual solid shirt along with a blue jeans, I am going to try this out it seems pretty good and I also recommend you to try this yourself too. I would prefer to go with casual sneaker with this look but if you like boots then they might also be a great option.

Screen Shot 2015-11-19 at 3.07.51 AM

Throughout the movie plain solid colour shirt are given more preference instead of any other pattern, even in this look this seems to hold true. Even though this shirt has vertical stripes but they somehow give a solid pattern feel. I have no reason to oppose solid pattern shirts if I will get such effective results. If you have had enough of kurtas and pyjamas look then this is what should be your next step. A dark colour shirt and a blue denim below along with a sneaker. A black analog watch and sunglasses when needed.Screen Shot 2015-11-19 at 3.17.49 AMNow this is a sad mood look, it is a point in Bunny’s life that he is in dilemma to choose love or passion, thus a plain colour white t-shirt signifies his sadness in mood. If you ever want to experiment this in actual life wear a white t-shirt with no patterns along with jeans chances are more that people might find you to be sad. If you see someone wearing this chances are that you can instantly detect their mood the next time.

Screen Shot 2015-11-19 at 3.19.32 AM

I made sure that I include this look as it is one of my personal favourite, if you want to experiment with light shades of various colours then this look will inspire you at its best, white plain tee over a light blue casual shirt and a dark blue chino or jeans whichever makes you feel more comfortable. I would prefer to have this look while I hangout with friends, if you have a girlfriend chances are she might start loving you even more with this chocolate boy look. Just kidding. I would say that if you are going for some outdoor event such as parties or similar stuff this look is a cool option. This look will portray you as a guy who is fashionable, trustworthy and easy to get along with if you want to show these qualities to people then this look is all yours.

Screen Shot 2015-11-19 at 3.21.06 AM

I had to attend a wedding ceremony of my cousin sister and I had fixed in my mind to get a similar sherwani  to this one, it is pretty easy to find this sherwani as it is not a designer made and you can find it at many stores around your locality selling under the banner of some local brands. This look is the most impressive one to wear during the wedding night and will highlight you among the crowd, go for this look as even I am a fan of this one look to wear for a wedding night.

Screen Shot 2015-11-19 at 3.24.01 AM

Now yet again we have a travel look but this time its an airport and Kabir believes that for every transport vehicle there should be a different style, I really like the concept of wearing a hooded sweatshirt over a mandarin/Chinese collar white shirt, it lets you add some swag to your looks. If I had the choice to choose my shoes for this I would obviously choose sneakers over running shoes or boots, I really like the feel of sneakers with this look.

Screen Shot 2015-11-19 at 3.34.46 AMFinally its the time when he decides to marry a girl and together complete the passion of his life. So this is bunny’s style of dressing to propose a girls for marriage. This is something very unique to me, I have not got the experience to see someone proposing wearing formals and this one comes completely out of the box. Shirt,Blazer,Tie and trouser along with bouquet and a bottle of wine, I can not think of anything better. If you have thought about proposing your girlfriend for marriage, this is how you shock her at her place and propose her dude. For this stlye all I would like to say Kabir Thapar is #Respect

Thanks For Reading.

Styling You,
