“Dapper Homme promotes gender-neutral fashion at Lakme Fashion Week”
Dapper Homme is generously slated to be found in every men’s wardrobe, it is time that there are no inhibitions for today’s women to recreate dapper looks in her personal style too. Gender-neutral fashion is the new normal. A shift in gender boundaries that’s less revolutionary than evolutionary, today’s blur of the sexes is an organic outgrowth of a changing attitude in the culture as a whole. Like our clothing, we’re becoming more relaxed about it all.
Dapper Homme revolutionized the complete sense of my styling experience at Lakme Fashion Week. These five days of fashion were quite enough to evolve into a signature style of me being a Dapper woman. Being a clothing brand that caters to every classic man surprisingly is also capable of kicking up a serious style statement of sprucing a female into a modern day dapper woman a notch further. Not an androgynous label but there’s a sophisticated ease to be adopted by both male and female in terms of choosing the best of the clothing, in which either could wear the same thing.
Home to the best of classics men’s wardrobe essentials available in the wide variety of fun prints and colored bow-ties, shirts, ties, cuff-links, belts and label pins etc, I was lucky to make them a part of my daily off- runaway trend at Lakme Fashion Week. Strutting every day in their classic bow-ties and shirt my outfits seemed to amplify a flirty revolution about being an ambassador of Dapper Woman at Jio Gardens during five days of fashion. Ranging in their label’s different patterns and colored textures I am putting together dapper series look for each day at LFW.
Day 1 Look – Decchoro Style Gamy
Who said linen band gala shirts can be opted only for ethnic occasions. This linen shirt can look undoubtedly uber classic with pants but since we were at Lakme Fashion Week it was time for me to play some different decchoro style gamy. With an eclectic pair of animal print crop top, bronze pleated skirt, fishnet socks and a sock boot, an oversized black linen shirt from Dapper Homme blurred the lines by keeping the style floating in the versatility of chunky fun.
Day 2 Street Style– Floating in Love
Bringing to life dapper woman series it started off with the red accessories to play the notes of love. Bow-tie that matches the waist belt along with some mad-hatting became my signature style. Pairing blue shirt with textile print played the right muse of keeping the romance alive. What adds the spunk is pairing denim skirt with the Dapper Homme’s shirt. This further puts light on versatile ways of styling this shirt!
Day 3 –Purple state of mind
Decoding everything purple from Dapper Homme. It was a gothic play of being a smurf in purple . Fine tailored checkered shirt dominates the whole look. Whereas violet bow-tie puts together the whole look. You just cannot ignore how we swear by everything purple from glossy lip stain, flat forms to purple tinted sun glasses.
Day 4- Athliesure
The new connection between tennis and fashion seems to have revived a lecherous interest in short skirts that had seemed moribund. While tennis looks more and more like fashion, this summer, fashion looks more than a bit like tennis. Little did I know that this flamingo printed shirt in naval blue and white from Dapper Homme can turn up the athliesure game strong when paired with a skirt and sneakers.
Day 5- Gentlewoman
Last day at Lakme Fashion week needed a re-establishment of classic white striped shirt from Dapper Homme with a strong power play of a bow-tie. Bow ties used to be restricted to men. We redefine it by bringing it into casual and semi-formal women wear in ways it was not originally intended to be worn. Team it with short suits, skirts and jeans, experimenting with prints and colors. This look is a symbol of panache and no longer bound by the rigid sartorial rules, Dapper Homme revamps and redesigns its ensembles so that anyone can incorporate for individuality.
