It’s sweltering outside, here in Kolkata. Yesterday a Halo was seen around the Sun. People started talking about how a 22 degrees rainbow halo served as an announcement to an approaching hail storm. It’s already been a day and a half, still no sign of even a drizzle…
However, please don’t cancel your plans to go out and have fun. There are super ways to beat the heat. Trust me on this. Recently I had to attend a Corporate Day party, which required me to put on formals. A full sleeve shirt, tie, blazer….. the very thought of them were enough to melt me down already. And more importantly, isn’t it boring to always wear the same old things and to look nothing different, all the time?
So I started searching my wardrobe to find something interesting to add to the already decided quintessential set of clothes.
And there it was … a cotton, button-less kurta with Sanskrit text printed all over…. and my experimental senses kicked in…
The formal shirt went back to its seat in the closet as I decided to wear this piece of cotton with a pair of formal trousers ……
The blue script totally complimented the black, tapered down jet black pants while my skin breathed well and nice.
I left the tucked in portion of the kurta to fall with a mushroom-end so that even if I sweat, the garment wouldn’t stick onto my body and make me look greasy and slimy all over. You can buy this from any of the various leading clothing chains across the country, at a very reasonable price …
Shoes are a Gentleman’s best friend. They shoot up your level of confidence like nothing else. Here, I have chosen a pair of Classic brown shoes, which help my feet to breathe.
Always remember that co-ordinating your belt is always important. Do not wear a belt which does not match the colour tone of your shoes. It’s a BIG no no .
The next and most important thing is to protect your eyes. Make it a point,that you must never step outside without a pair of shades. Round glasses have always been my favourite and trust me, you can never go wrong with them. Whatever you wear, your primary motif should be, to be and feel comfortable…always.
So, after a bit of re-arrangements, I found the perfect formal wear for this season. Be it a date, a day party, a birthday party or any other occasion.. I am sure this look would never fail to fetch envious looks from your fellow mates and the look of admiration from that special someone.
So if you are too irritated by the heat, just :
Do let me know what you feel about this look and also write to me if you could experiment more on this line. I would love to try them myself….
