The incredibly good-looking Shahid Kapoor has come a long way from his Ishq Vishk days. He is no more a gawky teenager clad in ill-fitted jeans and T-shirts, but a style icon who manages to make women swoon over his looks every time he makes an appearance.
Now that we already know how devastatingly handsome and stylish he is becoming day by day, it is time for men to take some styling lessons from him. So, here is a low-down on the handsome hunk’s style.
The suave actor not only has a boy-next-door charm, but also knows how to keep it simple and comfortable in casual clothes. For an effortlessly cool look, pair an eye-grabbing cotton T-shirt with a button down shirt and ripped denims. This is a perfect outfit for running errands, hanging out with friends or attending an outdoor event. For a smart casual outing or evening, you can go for a classic waist-length bomber or varsity jacket in summer friendly materials like cotton twill blend or linen. Finish off your look with rolled-up chinos and slip-on suede loafers.
Have you been avoiding wearing printed suits? Let Shahid show you the right way to don a printed/patterned suit for a black tie event with aplomb. Team your printed tuxedo jacket with a plain shirt. Finish off the look with a sexy bow tie, back swept gelled hair and formal shoes. Leave the stubble on because it’s trendy and oh-so-irresistible. If you are a newbie to wearing printed suits, take a cue from one of Shahid Kapoor’s looks for the GQ magazine photoshoot. The lapels on his dinner jacket have polka dots on them, which is a subtle way to don printed suits. The man sure knows how to look hot and stylish in the cutesy polka dot prints. Now who said a man cannot wear polka dots?
What is it about men in uniform that always scores brownie points over other men, apart from their bravery and patriotism of course? It’s their sharp look that is so manly. And Shahid Kapoor once more nailed the look of an army officer with his properly trimmed moustache. Pick a moustache style that suits your face. But, remember to keep it well maintained, a shabby moustache doesn’t look sexy.

Growing a full beard is not seen as a sign of shabbiness now, it is hot and very much in vogue. Go for a buzzcut hairstyle with a nice thick beard. Or, you can go for an undercut and medium length beard, just like the one sported by Shahid Kapoor in his last movie Shaandaar, a perfect combination for dealing with the summer heat and staying fashion-forward. Oh, and did you know that men with a beard are considered to be better lovers providing the perfect amount of tickle and rub wherever required?
Forget all about the shoulder bag, wallet, or huge holdalls and invest in a great looking backpack. It is sturdy, reliable and guaranteed to pep up any outfit. Take it to your gym or to the airport, a backpack is practical and perfect for holding all your belongings. Pick one that suits your personality, but we suggest something edgy and cool like the camo printed one that Shahid carries with him everywhere.

Lately Farhan Akhtar floored us with his man bun, but before that it was Shahid Kapoor who made our hearts skip a beat with his killer looks in the top knot hairstyle. The hairstyle is perfect to beat the summer heat. For a serious look, leave your cheeks heavily stubbled and do not forget the moustache, if you want people to think you are mature. So men what do you think? Are you up for this cool and challenging hairstyle?
The stylish actor knows it too well that delicate jewellery are not just for women, they are a perfect accessory for men too. He is often seen sporting a long sleek chain with most of his casual outfits. You can also see him wearing stylish brooches on his jackets at times.
