Wasantha weerasekera’s dress to kill

  1. 1. Wasantha Weerasekera’s Dress to KillI, Wasantha Weerasekera, feel these days where fashion trend change with the bat of aneyelid, it is becoming increasingly essential for men to pay attention to their lookswithout going overboard and making a fool of themselves. In the blind rush to followfashion trends, men tend to ignore the fact that it is not easy to ape any look like a rugged
  2. 2. look that looks good on the screen or on the glossy sheets of any fashion magazine. Hereare some tips for all those men who want to put their best foot forward. There are somebasic principles that especially men tend to ignore, but if practiced could put a suavemetro sexual male to shame.Jeans and Trousers-I, Wasantha Weerasekera, feel the beauty of jeans is that they can be stylish andcomfortable at the same time and are sure to remain stylish for as long as they hold up.Go ahead, don’t be afraid to buy more jeans wear; it is a must have for your wardrobe.I, Wasantha Weerasekera, feel for a cool urban style, try baggy jeans with trendysneakers. Oversized jeans can be worn with running shoes or sandals; they won’t lookgood with formal shoes.A bootleg pair of jeans blends well with any type of shoes, be it running shoes, sandalsand even classy shoes. This style of jeans allows you to wear trendy leather sandals withas stylish shirt, and more sporty sandals with a plain T-shirt, if you want a casual look.Avoid wearing very dressy shoes with jeans; these look best with pants and trousers.I, Wasantha Weerasekera, feel jeans should generally be worn low on your waistline;wearing them too high exhibits the “grandfather look”.To know if your jeans fit properly try them without a belt; if they fit and stay on withouthaving to wear a belt, it means they will look even better once you slip one on. Also, besure you can still breathe when you have them on.If you have a protruding middle try, wear your pants starting from the natural waist. Gofor pleated pants as they make the flow to be smooth down from the belly area. Thepleats also allow the pants to have enough room for stretch. Short men should avoid cuffson their jeans and trousers as it will beef up the legs and make them appear stumpy.I, Wasantha Weerasekera, feel self-pinstriped dark colored pants make you look tallerand thinner. To flaunt a broader upper body team them with a light colored shirt.Pleats and cuffs are traditional and functional. Pleats let you sit down comfortably andcuffs add weight to the bottoms allowing for proper drape.Shirts and T-shirts-Short shirts are in vogue and a rage among teenagers and men alike. The advantage witha short shirt is that it can be worn with a suit to give you a complete semi-formal look.Since they are not supposed to be tucked in, they can be worn with a linen suit for a semi-formal look.
  3. 3. Avoid shirts that have prominent patterns. Try subtle colors like beige in self-prints thatdo not stand out. Pin-stripped shirts never go out of style.A plain crisp well fitted shirt worn with pants that are tailor made and customized to yourbody, forms the most desirable combo.Button-down collars are best avoided. Instead, experiment with the plethora offantastically stylish collar types available. From narrow spreads to wide spreads, thecollar width and size is a great way to add detail to a regular dress shirt in a way that thestifling structure of a button-down collar can’t.Formal and Leisure Wear-The first rule relating to work gear is to never ever wear jeans or sneakers to work. Workgear should be elegant and formal. Black, grey, khaki, and brown chinos would work finewhen mixed and matched with a number of formal shirts. Flat front pants with a slightflair (boot leg) at the bottom look chic.For important meetings make use of power dressing. Wear a full suit to make the rightfirst impression.The common mistake many men make with the term “formal attire”- A black-tie event isone in which you would wear a tuxedo; whereas formal attire requires you to wear a suitand tie- think cocktail-appropriate attire.Linen probably is the best fabrics for leisure wear. Pants or even better pajamas of linenteamed with shirts of soft cotton or t-shirts complete the look. Linen is available in a widevariety of colors and there’s a lot to experiment with.Suits and Jackets-Jackets and overcoats are symbols of authority. However the first thing to keep in mind isthat the bottom buttons of men’s jackets are not designed to be buttoned.Single breasted suits can have one, two, three or more buttons. Two and three buttonjackets are classic. When wearing a two button jacket only the top button is fastened.With three button jackets, you can close the middle, or middle and top button. Some suitsare made so that the lapels roll to the middle button. On those suits you leave the topbutton unfastened.Four of more button jackets are designed to fasten all the buttons, even the bottom onebut only if it can be closed without a noticeable pulling of the fabric, it is ok to close elseleave it open.
  4. 4. Double breasted suits are the more formal of the two styles and can have four to sixbuttons with one or two “to button”.Suit and sports jackets should fit properly which includes showing 1/4” to ½” of linen orshirtsleeve at the jacket sleeve.At times the pockets of suit jackets are sewn shut to preserve the structure of the suit.Keep the stitching in place with any suit you buy. However, some casual blazers- likevelvet or tweed blazers—also have the same kind of stitching. In this case, for a morecasual look, remove the stitching.Ties-Ties are hot and should be worn more often It does not matter what color it is. Accordingto fashion industry’s great Giorgio Armani, as long as you are wearing a tie it does notmatter whether it matches your outfit or not.The proper width of a tie has traditionally been 3 1/4”. The length should beapproximately 56 inches. A longer tie, for taller men, may go up to 60 inches.The knot should be in the middle of your collar and the wide end of your tie should endaround the middle of your belt buckle. Ties should reach your belt line.Experiment with unconventional colors. Go bold, subtle, wild, or subdued with patterns.Stripes or dots, just about anything works.To check whether your tie has been perfectly tied check for a dimple below the knot.Properly knotted ties have a dimple under the knot.Never wear a short sleeve shire with a tie.Hang up your ties: It helps take out some of the wrinkles. Knit ties can be stretched whenhung, so gently roll them up and store them in a drawer. For traveling, loosely roll tiesand place them inside a pair of socks or a tie case.Ideas on Belts by Wasantha Weerasekera-Belt is one accessory that can make or break the entire ensemble. Go with the basis forwork wear i.e. a thin leather belt with a not-so-wide buckle. When wearing a belt withtrousers or any other formal outfit, avoid wearing stylish buckles. But when you arepartying whatever your contemporary or vintage all looks perfect if you have the queereye for picking up stuff.I, Wasantha Weerasekera, feel the color of your belt should always match the color ofyour shoes. Also when wearing a belt with an official attire stick to the basics like blackand brown.
  5. 5. Never wear a belt with suspenders unless you want to give the image that your pants arefalling.Suede and other leather belts can be worn with formal wear. Cotton, nylon and beadedbelts with wide buckles give a very trendy and casual look.Ideas on Shoes and Socks by Wasantha Weerasekera-For sneakers, stick with thin, white, ankle-length socks if you are wearing them withshorts. If they are being sported with jeans, opt for a light or charcoal grey sock.As a rule of thumb, avoid wearing white socks with jeans at all costs; they tent to standout like a sore thumb.It is perfectly acceptable to go socks less with loafers. Also socks should preferably be ofdark colors as white looks too stark.Do not hesitate to wear shoes with heels if you are…well vertically challenged. Wellheeled shoes will make your pants seem more well cut.If you are wearing a suit, wear lace up shoes. Black shoes work well with navy, grey orblack pants. Brown shoes are best suited to tan, brown beige, green and other darker earthtones. Burgundy shoes go best with khaki, lighter browns, blue and grey. Tan shoes lookgreat with lighter earth tones, blue beige, lighter tan or whole.I, Wasantha Weerasekera, believe the color of your socks should match the color of yourtrousers.Trousers should be long enough to cover your socks, and socks should cover your shinseven when you cross your legs.Do’s and Don’ts from Wasantha Weerasekera-Do’s-Go for studded belts, colored shoes and bracelets.Cufflinks are a rage.Get body piercing and tattoos if you can carry it off well.Stick to simple watches.I, Wasantha Weerasekera, will say pack diamond, antique silver cuff links.
  6. 6. Carry a fountain pen.Go for simple leather belts.Wear well starched, neatly ironed cotton shirts, they always give a good impression.Maintain your shoes well. After use always get them cleaned and polished and put awayin a dustproof place.Don’ts-Never overdo accessories.I, Wasantha Weerasekera, will ask you to avoid clutter. There is simply no need to wearfour gold chains at a time.Avoid being a copycat. Things that look good on others will not necessarily look good onyou.Don’t play with your perfume. No one wants to feel as if they have just entered theperfume section of a shop when you pass by. Apply just the right amount of perfume.I, Wasantha Weerasekera, will say thank to you for reading the article and believe youwould have been found it beneficial for you.
