A For Accessories
Lightweight scarves, dapper pocket-squares or classic bow ties, it’s the season to complete your look with accessories that will start a conversation wherever you go.

 

B For Backpacks
In vibrant prints and vivid colours, this season, the schoolboy-inspired bag gets a fun makeover. Make it your go-to carry-all for everywhere, from a weekend getaway to off-duty days in the city.

 

C For CrossFit
Whether you want to get beach ready, or carry off a racer-back vest, it’s time to get fit. This time around junk the iron pumping, and head over to a CrossFit box. It’s rigorous and intensive, but it’ll also get you to your goal faster than you imagined. 

 

D For Distressed
Pack the rock ’n’ roll vibe with beaten-up and broken-in jeans. Distressed is here to stay for yet another season. So all your worn-out pairs continue to remain as key essentials of your wardrobe.

 

E For Espadrilles
Super casual, comfortable and airy, this warm-weather footwear lends a laid-back vibe to your downtime looks. Now available in colours and prints that have never been explored before.

 

F For Foot Fetish
Make wearing socks a fun activity as the days get warmer. Pick pieces with quirky prints and geometric patterns in vivid hues. We suggest you go shorter on the length and let it peek just a bit.

 

G For Griffin
Need to update your footwear wardrobe? Here’s Griffin—a brand with shoes that will take you from the boardroom to the bar. Dress them up or down, these pieces will pair with multiple styles.  

 

H For Healthy Eating
We’re not saying you should go on a diet. Just add the essential nutrients and vitamins to your routine. Boost up your meals with superfoods like chia seeds and goji berries; replace polished rice with quinoa and couscous; and go organic with your fruits and vegetables.

 

I For Innovator of The Year

From his award-winning portrayal of Stephen Hawking in The Theory of Everything, to Lili Elbe—one of the first known recipients of sex reassignment surgery—Eddie Redmayne has transformed himself as the man whose movies you cannot miss out on. The English actor leaves no stones unturned when it comes to innovating on and off screen. 

 

J For Jog Pants

In the gym, for a run, to lounge at home, or simply add some sporty elements to your street-style, jog pants are the new versatile must-haves. We assure you that you’ll want them in every style, colour and print.

 

K For Keep it Classic

A little bit of classic can take you a long way. When all else fails, stick to a simple two-button blazer, paired with chinos or tailored trousers, and slick shoes. The sharpest person in the room is going to be you.

 

L For London Calling

Shake-up your style with labels that bring modern British fashion to your wardrobe. Pick from the free-spirited East London’s Criminal Damage, and classic pieces by New Look, to a music-inspired collection by Addict, and statement-makers by Friend Or Faux

 

M For Male Maintenance

Shed away winter’s unkempt guise and make a special effort for grooming. Get a brand new hair-style that’s warm-weather friendly. Plus, there’s never been a better time for facial hair. A well-maintained beard adds loads of unmatched style to your look.

 

N For Neon Sunglasses

Move over the classics, for it’s time to get your head around some rapper-style with neon sunglasses. These bold statement-makers will bring back the ’80s.

 

O For Off-duty

Gone are the days when off-duty meant laid-back and relaxed. It’s time to smarten-up your outfit with a slick pair of loafers or brogues, a lightweight jacket, and smart rolled-up jeans or chinos. Spring’s off-duty wardrobe can easily be transformed into workwear. 

 

P For Patent

Once reserved for the red-carpet, patent shoes have moved far and beyond. This season, look for the finish in high-top trainers, dress-down pumps and smart-casual brogues.

 

Q For Quirky Prints

From a moustache-print tee to a smiley cardholder and Mickey’s Disney friends on shoes, quirky prints will inject a touch of personality to your everyday style.

 

R For Ranveer Singh

Here’s an actor who’s redefining menswear. For him, dressing-up is a mix of fun, dapper, and often preppy. Think printed tuxedo jackets, coloured chinos, and a liberal use of accessories like snapback caps, fedoras, vintage sunglasses and vibrant pocket-squares. Experimenting with fashion is an art, which Ranveer Singh has perfectly mastered. 

 

S For Sporty Street

The rise of jog pants and trainers have seen the birth of a new trend—street style injected with sporty elements. This season, bring out all the athletic pieces in your wardrobe, be it a mesh tee or skater shoes.

 

T For Techno Treats

If you’re not yet counting the number of steps you’re walking, or monitoring your heartbeat as you run, you’re failing to keep up with technology. Fitness trackers are the new gadgets to strap on your wrist. And use for a healthier lifestyle. 

 

U For Utilitarian

Season-proof your wardrobe with lightweight utility jackets. Versatile enough to team with chinos or jeans, these pieces are a modern take on military-inspired fashion. Ace the trend with details such as box pockets, epaulets, and shirt collars.

 

V For Voice of The Year

English singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran’s Thinking Out Loud took away two awards at the Grammys this month—Song of the Year and Best Pop Solo Performance. And rightly so: The two-album-old artiste is one of the most promising voices to look out for this year.

 

W For White

Just the colour you need for a long Sunday brunch in the sun. Before it gets too warm, pull out the slim-fit chinos, printed vest or the classic plain tee and head to your favourite café. Plus, this is one of the two colours you need to nail monochrome. 

 

X For X.O.Y.O

Exclusive to KOOVS.COM, X.O.Y.O blends clean urban styles with sporty shapes. Yes, this is just the brand you need if you want to perfect S for Sporty Street (see above).

 

Y For You Demand

Why wait for your favourite shows to play on TV when you can get them directly on your handheld device as and when you like it. With the much-awaited Netflix launch, viewing video content just got a whole lot easier. You watch, what you want, when you want!

 

Z For Zip Away

Spring is the season to head out for a driving holiday. Rent a car, and explore the terrains of India, from the Himalayas to the coastal plains. If you’re feeling a lot more adventurous, drive along the splendid landscapes of Europe, assisted by nothing but Google Maps.
