Men’s Style Special: The Best Dressed List

All The Men From Bollywood’s Red Carpet Who Left Us Swooning

With chiseled frames and taut torsos preened to perfection, it is of no surprise that our Bollywood men have a knack for looking fabulous in anything they wear. Some keep things simple and stick to the everlasting and classic suit, some let their Indian roots permeate through and some have fun by venturing into positively outré clothing, blurring the line between quirky and dapper. Either way, a man who works on his wardrobe and owns his style with flamboyance, is an instant visual treat.

With men’s fashion becoming more prevalent these days, every so often, we get these conspicuous looks from the male celebs that are worthy of a second glance. Here are our top picks from the red carpet that left us swooning over these men’s swagger.

Rana Dagubatti

Let’s begin with the showstopper for a change: we wonder if its Rana’s experience of walking for so many designers that has made him a pro at harmonizing hues. He looked snazzy in an all-black Tarun Tahiliani bandhgala.

Fashion tip: All you men with well-built physiques, pick a piece that highlights your shoulders and chest – the ethnic touch on the pocket squares and folded sleeves do exactly that for Rana.


Varun Dhawan

When in doubt, stick to monochrome, and if your doubts persist, refer to Varun Dhawan. In a fashion scene where black and navy suits dominate, Varun’s risk of picking a white Emporio Armani ensemble absolutely paid off.

Fashion tip: Varun breaks the monochrome monotony using a slim black tie and black shoes. You can also try the same with a blue shirt, brown shoes and a patterned tie or keep it casual by wearing a v-neck tee or polo in a pastel shade, paired with sneakers and leaving the blazer unbuttoned.



Ranveer Singh

One has to admire a man who is fearless when it comes to a bright and bold colour like red – the hype around Ranveer Singh was justified with this outfit. In a structured rust red Rahul Khanna-Rohit Gandhi brocade suit, Ranveer pulled off the look with aplomb, finishing it with a hat (very Pharell Williams-ey) and a walking stick.

Fashion tip: Like this comical legend does, you too can slowly start pushing the envelope when it comes to personal style. See what quirks speak of your personality and translate it to your dressing. Some examples are – funky colored shoes, an accessory, an eccentric hairstyle, shorts paired with your blazer and so on.



Ayushmann Khurana

An event like GQ Best Dressed Men warrants an edgy look and Ayushmann definitely delivered. The citrine accents through his striped tie and pocket square added sunshine, while the classic blue suit tempered the look. Despite limited accessory options for men, props to the stylist, Nitasha Gaurav for adding the vintage-ey lapel pin/ brooch.

Fashion tip: A proper, tailored fit is a must for a suit, but little things that count toward suiting up perfectly are, an ironed tie, pocket squares, cufflinks and spiffy shoes.ayushmann

Ranbir Kapoor

A list of debonair celebs sans RanbirKapoor? That’s not even possible! Our Achilles heel is men like Ranbir, the kind who have the confidence to carry off whatever they choose to wear.

Fashion tip: Notice how different a suit can look solely based on the shoes. Venetian loafers are the epitome of comfort and style and they come in an array of colors. Invest in basic colors for casual soirees and events.


Akshay Kumar

Somebody needs to find out what the secret behind Akshay Kumar’s reverse-aging process is! The suit with t-shirt look is often criticized as looking ungroomed, but Akshay makes it work and how!

Fashion tip: Here are some basics to put this look together without compromising on the charm factor: make sure the blazer is well-fitting because it has to be left unbuttoned, primp up your beard to add a hint of grunge to the look, find a flattering neck-style (v-necks are universal), and pick a pair of suede or patent leather shoes in a contrasting color (grey, camel brown, beige, tan) depending on the color of your suit.



Imran Khan

THIS. This is the example of a quintessential suit – a perfectly tailored (blazer and trousers) Paul Smith, great shoes, a neat pocket square and a contrasting tie that stands out and puts the look together.

Fashion tip: Charcoal grey suits are like neutral canvases that are the easiest to work with. Since they pair well with any color, don’t hold back from experimenting. You can try shoes in an oxblood shade or a tie in midnight blue for starters.

Purab Kohli

Our eyes are set on this man because of how effortless and relaxed he looks in desi suits. And this was no ordinary desi look! In Anite Dongre, we’d say he looked suave in the bandhgala and dhoti. Instead of going the same old route, he opted for plain mojari shoes which showed that he had the gumption.

Fashion tip: To add more of a desi dose, team up your bandhgala-dhotis with jodhpuris or kolhapuris and a lapel brooch.
