There are definitely personal preferences and tastes, but roughly there are few things that women would love on men, especially Indian men.

Go ahead and check out which are those things that most of the Indian beaus would have their eyes stuck on Indian men. Surprisingly, most of them are easy.


1. Perfectly fitted jeans

Nothing can be better than a pair of cool jeans. Not only a good and a well-fitted jeans can be durable but they can also be purely classic.

Around 54% women have been reported to have said that men look really hot in rightly faded vintage-style jeans, neither too much nor too less. Couple it up with a white T-shirt or any bright coloured sweater and that can be a perfect contrast to those blues.

Shiona Turini, Cosmopolitan’s fashion market director reveals her personal preference on men also in the form of jeans. Here’s what she says,

There’s nothing I love more than to see a guy in a perfect white T-shirt, well cut jeans (not too baggy, not too tight and definitely not boot cut), with a pair of Jordans. There’s something so classic, manly and sexy about that very basic combination.

Also, don’t forget, no matter how many Bollywood films show, DO NOT show your underwear, by sagging down your jeans. A BIG NO!

2. Flat front pants with crisp shirts

Formal look can never go out of style. And no man should ever, ever underestimate the power of a pair of flat front pants coupled with crisp dress shirts.

Remember pleats can always repel a woman because pleated pants can make its wearer look bigger. Contrary to these are the flat front pants that can actually make its wearer look trimmer or at least average. Stay safe and classic by pairing them with a casual or formal dress shirt. While cotton dress shirts in light blue and white are must haves, it can be quite okay if you branch out some other colours like magenta, purple and green.

Make sure to follow the one-finger gap for your collars. While turning your head, don’t make your collars also turn along with it. Also don’t forget to stitch your sleeves loose enough to fit in a wristwatch. Yes, sleeves do matter a lot!

You just C-A-N-‘-T miss t shirts. T shirts are a perfect solution when you want to give out a lesser formal look but more of a casual appearance. Next to books and dogs, they are definitely a man’s best friend.

If you want to rock a classic look, a crew collar T-shirt can be a good option.

Graphic tees accompanied with funny slogans can be cool, but think before buying them.Many women actually judge a man’s intellect based on his choice of T-shirts.

Don’t ever wear V neck tees if you don’t have an athletic body.

Polo T-shirts can be a safe choice if you have nice shoulders as well as forearms. You can also choose them if you want to give out a casual cool look.

Deep colours like dark blue and dark green can always be good, but never ever miss out a black tee in your wardrobe. Black is simply classic.

When it is about fashion statement of Indian men, we just can’t miss out kurtas. Ask any woman and almost everyone would say, that any Indian man can simply look ethnically classy with kurtas on them.

Partner your kurtas with either pyjamas or jeans and you can be all set to steal the mood.  Short kurtas might not look bad, but the long knee-length ones can be just perfect. While white can be a safe colour to play with, dark blue, blue and violet can be equally sensational.

Remember don’t go over the top with those bright polka dots all over your kurtas or those tiny little flowers. Keep your kurtas plain and simple. Simplicity is always beautiful. If you want to add more style, just try rolling up your sleeves till your arms. Yes, women L-O-V-E that!

5. Black or navy blue suits

While navy and charcoal are quite safe picks, brown or tobacco can also be quite cool. Remember, most of the Indian women would always prefer a man who would look like a man. It’s not being sexist but it’s a fact.

Rhoxy Villasenor, who is the founder as well as the designer of Rhod, says,

I love men that dress like men. I love when men understand tailoring, fit, and proportion; a man who dresses well and takes care of himself. A black well tailored suit is every man’s wardrobe staple.”
