12049334_1652359651715359_5079507509450407748_n

Gone are the days when business appropriate attire meant a stiff suit in basic colors with an uninspired tie and polished shoes. Today you’ll only run into this sort of wardrobe on shows like ‘Mad Men’ and ‘Suits’. While it may sound like a mildly hilarious oxymoron, ‘business casual’ is a boon to all mankind and is an opportunity to expand your style and venture into new territory. With everyone clamoring to make a mark in the workplace with their style sensibilities, we’re brought you a comprehensive guide on the rules of business casuals.

Shirts – While they are considered to be a staple in the business formal department, shirts also take the cake for easily transitioning to the business casual side of the wardrobe. While you’ve mostly shied away from printed or slightly quirky colored shirts, a more casual wardrobe at work definitely give you the freedom to dip into this category. However, if you are opting for a shirt that’s in a bold color, balance your look with a more conventional colored bottom and sensible shoes. You can buy printed shirts for men online and there are even men’s poplin shirts and interesting men’s cotton printed shirts that you can experiment with.

T-shirts – We personally are in love with the comfort factor of a well-fitting t-shirt and it helps that you can buy shirts for men online India so easily. The thing with business casual attire is that as long as you look well-put together and are smartly dressed without going overboard, anything you can carry off may pass – t-shirts included. Unless it is casual Friday at work, don’t pair your t-shirts with ripped jeans and sneakers. Play it smart by combining your t-shirt with chinos or trousers and maybe throw in a blazer if you’d like to turn it up a notch. Steer clear of message tees or ones that have lots graphic designs unless you’re looking to be mistaken for an intern on his first day.

Bottom Wear – While choosing bottom wear for a business casual wardrobe may seem like a challenge, we assure you that it’s not such a big deal. Trousers, Chinos, Khakis and even Dress pants get the green signal but we’d steer clear of ripped jeans, leather pants and any other such items of clothing that may come across as unprofessional. Remember that less is more when it comes to business casuals and that while pairing your bottom wear with top wear, always stick to outfits that are clean, sharp and uncomplicated. We personally recommend that you buy bottom wear for men online from stores like London Bee to ensure the finest quality and the most contemporary styles.

Jackets – Who doesn’t love a man wearing a well-fitted jacket? While well-fitting blazers get a big nod from us when paired with sensible pants and a sober shirt, you’d be well advised to stay away from hoodies. Leather jackets paired with black or nay blue pants and a single colored shirt or t-shirt work superbly. Even denim jackets that are not very ‘in-your-face’ and that are clean cut can be thrown over your work outfit on a Friday. As long as your jacket is not too flashy, gaudy or in any way inappropriate to wear in a business setting, you’re good to go.

Accessories – Accessories are hands down the best part about business casual dressing. While you do get a wide berth to experiment and try new things, word to the wise – stay clear of anything that may make you seem unprofessional or shoddy. This means a strict no to ‘bling’. However, when it comes to ties and pocket squares, you have complete freedom to experiment with colors, pattern and in case of ties, you can even try out different knots. Another often overlooked aspect of dressing is the socks you wear. Most men don’t think twice about socks but they definite are a good option to inject a little quirkiness into your look. Even scarves are a huge part of men’s fashion online and seeing how versatile they are, they can be incorporated into your work wardrobe seamlessly.

While the professional sphere demands you to tone down on loud, personal statements, we encourage you to step out of your comfort zone and let your personal tastes speak for itself. It’s time to stop thinking of professional fashion as a monotonous palette and move on to creating your own rules.

Join The Mile High Club In Style: The Comprehensive Guide To Men’s Airport Fashion

London Bee Clothing LLP

Whether it is a tame domestic flight or a more challenging International one with many stops, airports are a crazy place to be in. With having to run around just to make it in time to board or having to be extra careful of your documents and luggage, it is often observed that men give preference to comfort over fashion (or just dressing nice) while travelling by air. However, it is possible to have the best of both world and look extremely stylish without having to sacrifice comfort. We’ve compiled a list of outfit choices that hit all the right spots and that’ll make you look like a million bucks even when you’ve spent a better part of yesterday in transit.

Jeans/Chinos – When you’re looking at wearing something that’s big on style but also on comfort, your best bet is to pick a pair of jeans or chinos. Jeans happen to be one of the most comfortable pieces of clothing and the fact that you can pair your favorite jeans with almost anything is just an added bonus. Chinos are more suitable for summer temperatures and again are very versatile. The next time you’re shopping for men’s wear online, be sure to pick a pair of chinos to pair with your favorite black t-shirt.

Jacket – Often it so happens that the weather of the place you started from is way less intense than that of your destination. Some other times you’ll feel chilly in the flight or maybe while you’re waiting to get onboard. In all of these scenarios you’ll feel like the luckiest man alive if you have the luxury of a jacket. Not only is a classy leather jacket amazing to pair with almost anything, it is also very practical and can transform the comfort level of your trip. Buy men’s jackets online and you’ll be spoilt for choice. You’ll find all kinds of different styles right from Men’s printed jackets, Men’s hoodies online or even men’s sweatshirts online.

Cargo Pants – Not only do they look stylishly casual, but they are also incredibly comfortable and practical. Cargo pants pair the comfort of jeans and the storage capacity of a small bag and that is why according to us they are the perfect pants for travelling. Wear them with a plain or striped t-shirt and heavy boots and you’re absolutely good to go. You can buy cargo pants for men online from websites like London Bee at amazing prices!

Shirts – When you’re looking for something that is not too casual but not strictly formal either, you could always go the ‘shirt way.’ Button down shirts are extremely versatile and can be paired with almost anything right from jeans to trousers. Pair your shirt with a pair of ripped jeans when you’re channeling your inner ‘bad boy’ with a touch of formality. When you’re looking at making heads turn without breaking a sweat, pair a plain white t-shirt with dark chinos and a printed shirt worn as a jacket. You can pick from Men’s Cotton Long Sleeve Shirts, Men’s Printed cotton shirts, Men’s Stripe Cotton Shirts and even Men’s Poplin printed shirts.

Polo Shirts – Another variation of the humble t-shirt could be a nice, ironed and sober colored polo shirt. Not only do polo shirts give out a very preppy and sporty vibe, but they also make you look well put together. You can pair your polo shirt with a pair of cargo pants, jeans, chinos and if you absolutely must wear shorts, then go for a flat fronted pair. Avoid wearing polo shirts that have too much going on or are in colors that tend to draw the eye.

Scarf – If you thought that scarves were reserved for women, you’re sadly mistaken. Not only are scarves very practical to sport during air travel, but they are also very amazing accessories. You can pair a scarf with your t-shirt and jeans combo and give the jacket a miss if you’re not heading somewhere cold. However, if your destination is bound to be chilly, throw in a jacket in the mix and what you’ve got is a very foolproof outfit that’s bound to make jaws drop wherever you go.

While travelling in itself can be a very tiring and challenging activity, the way you dress goes a long way in determining how enjoyable your journey is. While you should definitely be dressing comfortable, don’t miss a chance to pick and sport outfits that let your personality shine through. While we have provided you with a guide of sorts, feel free to mix it up a little and give yourself a little room to experiment.

Monsoon Fashion Guide For Men

12049334_1652359651715359_5079507509450407748_n

“Life isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass; but learning to dance in the rain”

Truly, there is no feeling more surreal than being able to experience the magic of the first rains. The Great Indian Monsoon is upon us once again and in spite of the fact that we have 3 solid months of monsoon each year, most of us have not yet mastered the art of dressing appropriately for the season. When the world outside is murky, wet and dull; you want to be able to express yourself without compromising on the style quotient on your wardrobe. Well, if that is what you’re looking for, look no more! We’ve done all the dirty work and brought to you a comprehensive guide that’ll ensure you survive the monsoon months without any mishaps in the wardrobe department.

Jeans – Yeah, no. Even the daftest of the lot know that denims are bulky, heavy and a pain to dry in the monsoon. But what if we told you that you could actually rock jeans in the monsoon months? While not all kinds of denim are monsoon friendly, stretch denim and bull denim are two types of denim that dry easily and even when wet, do not cling to your skin and give your rashes. In the world of bottom wear for men online, you’ll definitely chance upon a pair that’s ideal for your monsoon escapades. Even if you decide to wear your usual pair of jeans, make sure you stick to pairs that are not of the skinny jeans variety or the straight fit family as they tend to stick to your frame.

Shirts – As is the rule with anything you wear for the monsoon, fabrics that dry easily and don’t stick to your body when wet are your best friends. Fabrics that don’t easily get stained with mud and that resist water to a certain degree include fabrics that are blended with synthetic materials like lycra and polyester. However, choosing simple natural fabrics like cotton is a great idea since they don’t let the perpetual humidity of the Indian monsoon get to you. You can choose from a wide variety of men’s printed cotton shirts, men’s solid dyed cotton shirts and men’s cotton poplin shirts online. When everything around you is muddy and drab, having a colorful wardrobe is the simplest way to raise your spirits without breaking a sweat. However, with that being said, remember to dress for the occasion and social setting you’re going to be in.

T-shirts – The most essential and versatile item of clothing in your wardrobe; the mighty t-shirt is a great option for casual wear in the monsoons. Just as you stuck to certain fabrics when it came to shirts, even t-shirts in materials like cotton and blended fabrics including synthetic materials like lycra and polyester are your best bet. Go for bright colors like blue, yellow, red and orange if you’re going to a casual affair that doesn’t need you to look subdued. However, for casual events where you don’t want to come across as flamboyant, we would advise you to pick men’s t-shirts online in colors like rose quarts and buttercup. Not only are these colors chic and sophisticated, but they are also among the year’s most fashionable colors.

Shorts – Unless you absolutely have to, give the full length pants a break this monsoon and make way for shorts and bemudas this monsoon. We personally are big fans of cargo pants too, but to some they might be a little too bulky for the weather. Shorts make sure that the amount of fabric that can possibly get wet in the rains is reduced and to top it all off, they are exceptionally comfortable. Shorts are the perfect option for all your informal engagements such as coffee dates, brunch or house parties. Paired with a decent t-shirt, shorts are the go-to metro sexual look in our book. You can buy the best of men’s shorts online from websites such as London Bee!

Windcheaters – With everything said and done, the most important piece of clothing in your wardrobe during the monsoon season is the loyal windcheater. Not only does it keep you dry and protected from unsolicited splashing, it also helps keep you warm. Windcheaters today are not just limited to the basic brown, black and navy blues. Don’t be surprised if you end up finding neon colored, printed or even see-through windcheaters in the markets and while shopping for men’s fashion online. However, while picking one for yourself, keep in mind that you will be wearing this windcheater almost every day (unless you own another one). Pick a style that complements your existing wardrobe and one that you’re comfortable wearing. If you’re a man who loves basic clothing, choosing a bright orange windcheater might not be the best course of action.

As we always say, make sure that you are not sacrificing your personal style to any external elements even if that includes a bout of not-so-ideal weather. While comfort is the first priority, always strive to let your personal style shine.
