If you are fond of formalwear, winter is the best time to indulge in that in India. The options are aplenty, and you can layer as much as you want to.
However, not knowing the 'how to' of the styling game can set you back, resulting in painfully 'basic' outfits. But, like always, we've got your back.
Here are 8 tried and tested classy ways to wear formals in winter that will turn all the heads (and get the ladies weak in the knees).1. The Classic Gentleman
Wear a classic grey three-piece suit and a crisp white shirt, to begin with. Add a silk tie & a pocket chain to up your accessory game.
Put it together with an iconic flat cap, and then add round-framed glasses to complete the look. All set!

Replace the shirt with a turtle neck for a casual twist. Switch the pants with joggers, and don an effortlessly stylish long trench coat.
Add a lapel pin. Then, style it with a tan leather bag to keep it smart and timeless.
