Blame it on the boomers to have permanently tarnished our idea of men's style with their chequered half-sleeve shirts, mismatched pants, black brogues, and, of course, the belt. Even today, most men are not comfortable with the idea of pushing the envelope when it comes to their style, afraid that they’ll be accused of being too dandy, or worse — 'peacocking'. However, once in a while, we do come across a few who are unafraid of experimenting with clothes or using fashion as a means of self-expression. And one such man who is headlining fashion for us these days is singer Armaan Malik, whose casual, cool style has permeated into everyone’s consciousness via his Instagram uploads. And there’s a bunch that we can learn by decoding it.
Here are some ridiculously cool things about Armaan Malik’s style that we think most men (and even women! But especially men) should try to follow more often.
He Believes in Accessorizing His Looks with Jewellery
Although a lot of jewellery is essentially genderless, most people believe that using necklaces, rings, and bracelets is reserved for women. Armaan has finished his looks with chain link necklaces and stacked rings one too many times. For men who want to start wearing more jewellery, choosing hardware-inspired pieces like Armaan will be a good start.
Wearing A Monochromatic Look Seems To Be His Thing
Armaan Malik elevates most of his looks by keeping them monochromatic, which lends sophistication and simplicity while still packing a punch. For those who want to experiment with newer silhouettes — quilted T-shirts with joggers, anti-fit blazers, and even Indian wear like asymmetric kurtas — it is best to start with looks that are monochromatic.
He’s Embraced Athleisure
What we like the most about his style is his love for athleisure. Unlike most of us who have embraced the dressing subculture because of staying put in our gym wear for nearly two years, athleisure is Armaan’s dressing narrative. In fact, at the recent Healthntrends x Mamaearth present Beautiful Indians 2022, when legions turned up in jackets and blazers, Armaan chose an anti-fit textured shirt and matching pants. Of course, he made the best-dressed list. If he’s a sneakerhead, we’re not surprised.
His Clothes Are Genderfluid & We Love That The Most
Armaan’s clothes carry no trace of toxic masculinity when it comes to colours, shapes or silhouettes. A woman can happily share his wardrobe with him, and the clothes will still look good, and that is, perhaps, our favourite, most fashionable aspect of his looks. From floral-printed shirts to double-breasted blazers and everything in between, his wardrobe seems to be a collection of gender agnostic clothes.
He Doesn’t Take His Clothes Seriously & Likes To Have Fun With His Style
Armaan’s style exudes a certain fuss-free and easy vibe. His looks are immaculate yet effortless, and he looks like he has fun wearing whatever he does, which is perhaps the most impressive.
