BB X Benetton – Nostalgia

Memories of high school when I used to drag my father to Benetton and make him buy me a pair of jeans every other month. And that’s only because I had a very strong belief that no denim in India or rather the world, fit as good as those from Benetton.

Years later, that belief hasn’t changed and nor has the Benetton legacy. I recently witnessed the launch of the Benetton AW’16 Collection and I fell in love with the brand all over again. They have something for everyone. If you’re this new-age metro-sexual man, then you can go for kick-ass slim-fit denims with a pop colour bomber and a pair of sneakers. The more demure man can go for a jersey suit which is the perfect day-to-night outfit.

First I went with this very cute, almost boy-next-door look. I fell in love with the denims as soon as I set my eyes on them and hence had my whole look revolve around it. The sweater is every young man’s dream and paired with an olive mandarin collared shirt, I completed the look with signature sneakers. But the best part about this look? It’s the air force inspired bomber with patches!

My second look was a tad bit safe but then this jersey two-tone suit is the perfect substitute for a bland office look. You don’t always have to go for a basic suit, wear a super cool one like this one right here, team it with a formal-ish shirt and sneakers. For the perfect geek-chic look, borrow your father’s old spectacles *wink*

Now the third look is something everyone can pull off. And again, the whole idea of putting this look together was to make it revolve around the jeans which are B-E-A-U-T-I-F-U-L. They fit like a dream, the colour is amazing and can be paired with any of the Autumn colours, like this handsome maroon bomber. The polka printed Tee adds just enough drama to the look.

I hope I’ve convinced you enough to actually get up and check out the United Colors of Benetton AW’16 Collection. And if you’re still not convinced, let me take you there personally and force you to try their impeccable denims!
