Gender Conventions Are For Idiots, Delhi Boy Anurag Gupta Explains..

Anurag Gupta’s personal style is experimental, gender-neutral, and effortless. He’s a man with the swerve. While rummaging through his closet (of groundbreaking finds), we stumbled upon pieces that paused life for a moment. Each of them glorified blurred lines of the sexes. He doesn’t really care and as he says, “that’s okay”. But wait a minute. Anurag’s stars don’t shine of badassery alone; they have a point to make. “Style-induced sexism is for idiots”, “No heels for me”, “that’s too gay”, “skinny jeans are for girls”—aren’t prevalent thoughts for fashion anymore. Because after all, gender is just a word, you see. For the sixteenth day of ’30 Days of Denim’, Anurag Gupta gives no cents about masculinity and feminism, by giving us a masterclass on gender-less mannerisms with our OG, denim.

Begin with an upshot: select two highly versatile, cross-pollinated sartorial trends—pinstripes and denim. As base, let’s keep this look casual. The suns out, the heat’s in full form, you rather stay comfortable, you know? But how does one then climb the ladder? I’ve been seeing a lot of long-line T-shirts lately. And if paid heed to the experts, they’re LIT. Plus, they can easily replace your basic-ass white T-shirt. While long-lines happen to be supremely comfortable, whether you’re short/tall, they’ll make you appear taller. Here, take my vote!

Now for the bottom-Truth told, stick to your gut here. If feeling serene makes you pick the relaxed fit, go for it. While the slim-fit is a generic must-do for the boys, this decision is complete yours. Think jeans/trousers/chinos! Just remember to stick to summers blues, to balance a piece that’s coming next…

The Classic Blue Denim Jacket! You didn’t see this coming now, did you? I know it’s summer and a jacket’s out of question, but wait till we show you how it’s done. Hither: the Kylie Jenner route. Channel ‘casual resting’ by letting the goddamn thing hangs on your arms. Sounds heat-proof? Thank us later.

But again, I know you’re almost craving that edge. Easy, please! Your footwear/accessories will do it for you. As seen here, Anurag has picked platform glitter heels and an embellished choker to dramatise his rather, laid-back summer afternoon lewk. It’s going to irk some people, but that’s okay. Not feeling it? Go sombre, Billies! Leather accessories, beaded neck pieces and pops of colour can do the trick for you too. Basically, f-ing do what you want, man.

Lesson here: branch out. And embrace ‘different’. People will talk; just make it worth their while.
