Do real men wear velvet?
How to make a soft fabric look macho

An opulent fabric, velvet should be your go-to option when you're thinking of putting your best foot forward for a formal evening. "Having been a classic evening wear for years, velvet as a fabric is rich and grabs immediate attention," says, Carlton DeSouza, lead stylist, Myntra. A velvet blazer jacket in particular has the ability to transform any boring shirt and trouser into an instant hit with its luxurious addition. When you have a palette of lighter shades that need an add-on, don't think anything too loud; instead get a blazer from shades of the same colour family, like a lighter pink to go with a rosewood pink. "A velvet blazer commands a neat attire, so make sure to not club it with too many accompaniments. You don't want to kill the glam of a classy jacket," says Kamra. "A flattering cut and a perfect fit are imperative. You can't have a classic that's ill-fitted," adds Gaurav.

Upgrade the style quotient:
Just get a pair of tan brogues to round off the look. Roll up the trousers up to two folds and break away from that serious and mundane evening look.
