What we wear says a lot about us and while it would be wonderful if everyone could stick to the mantra ‘never judge a book by its cover’, unfortunately that is a long stretch and we all are guilty of judging people by the way they dress quite simply because it is the first thing we see or notice about them.
As a Bollywood celebrity, the pressure to dress to the nines is even bigger because their every move is papped and their fashion sense fills pages of magazines. It tends to be women however who always get talked about for their style rather than men, potentially because of the wider fashion range available to them. In this post we are going to turn the tables, and put the men under the fashion spotlight by looking at the best dressed Bollywood actors.
Known for his style, he is a designer’s dream. Ranveer is known to pull off a look with an indo western culture like a beard or a mustache. Ranveer’s signature outfit is a casual shirt and a pair of jeans. He outdoes himself when it comes to awards functions as he is seen with a tuxedo in the most extravagant colors. He is one of the best styled men and Bollywood’s best dressed, who never fails to bring his a-game in eye-catching outfit after outfit.
Amitabh Bachchan has impressively managed to maintain a keen interest in fashion since the start of his film career. He is most recognised for his natural French beard, and is often seen sporting a Chinese collar tux with an overcoat. Amitabh is always seen in formals or indian casual wear. He adores simplistic clothing lines and always has perfectly intact hair.
Milind Soman has chosen an abstract path for his sense of dressing. His style involves sophistication and class. Whether he chooses to wear Indian or western, his style is brisk and unique and is one of the most stylish Bollywood actors. Milind sticks to a simplistic wardrobe and wearing a watch or a piece of jewelry such as a ring is as fancy as it gets for the actor who likes to keep in natural and comfortable.
What is it that this Ranbir Kapoor cannot do? When it comes to fashion, he tends to take Bollywood fashion to the next level. He is considered the only one who can mix and match quirky with reserved and is one of Bollywood’s most prevalent trendsetters. He can often be found in suave suit or sporting vibrant colours, however he also puts comfort first by pairing trainers with smart wear. His style is minimal when it comes to kurtis, but be it Indian formal or western formal he always seems to be dressed to perfection and can pull of more quirky ensembles.
Farhan chooses to be a style specialist himself. This multi-talented individual can pull off anything ranging from a rock star to a businessman. Farhan’s style is concentrated on tasteful and trending Bollywood fashion. He is usually seen with a casual yet gaudy attire. He always manages to surprise his fans by sporting a new look for each film and promotional tour he does. We love that he likes to keep things fresh and isn’t afraid to experiment.
