Male Influencers Redefining Masculinity

Indian Male Influencers Redefining Masculinity

This is the age of influencers, especially male influencers. For ages, the domain of makeup, beauty, and fashion was unmoored and considered feminine. Gen Z and millennials have blurred and almost reduced the gap between what is feminine and what is masculine. At one point, earrings were considered bizarre on men because of the age-old stereotypes. These days, men are giving superfluous time to their grooming.

These men have altered the cliched definitions of what is feminine and what is masculine. They wear eyeliners, rock crop tops, and even bathrobes! The netizens have continuously showered these men with love. We rate them 10/10 ourselves because this is still better than toxic masculinity

We suggest our favorite male influencers who are redefining masculinity for all of us:

Siddharth Batra

Siddharth Batra has been wooing us with his creative content each passing day. He identifies himself as a rule-wrecker and a non-conformist. He wears eyeshadow like it is a new norm (plus, he loves K-Pop)! His men grooming content is mostly why he is loved immensely. From shower tips, skincare tips, weird grooming hacks, makeup basics, to how to hide hickeys! Isn’t he just the dream blogger for all of us? The coziest part is that he is dating our forever favorite Komal Pandey!

LONG BACKS GOT THAT WAP TOO

A post shared by Rickey Thompson (@rickeythompson) on

Ricky Thompson is an American actor, comedian, and internet personality. He grew to prominence for his comedy videos. You must be wondering what is so special about him as everyone does comedy these days. Men are still shamed for their moves if they are too feminine or too flexible. Ricky teaches everybody to be themselves and dance like no one’s watching. His videos are mostly him busting flexible moves. He adorns crop tops and tank tops and makes them all the more trendy. He is constantly working on redefining masculinity through his content.

Ankush Bahuguna

Ankush Bahuguna is an independent content creator. Each passing day, he is changing the norms of digital creation. Besides his comedy content, he is constantly revolutionizing the way the world has assigned specific gender roles for men. I clearly remember his first few initial videos that were posted with Dolly Singh. It talked about an ideal man who read Virginia Woolf! That video did set high hopes for a boyfriend material that existed only in fiction. Furthermore, his content is refreshing and attacks the patriarchy that is toxic for men too.

A post shared by Akshay Sharma|Never Stay Sober (@never_stay_sober) on

Akshay Sharma is also a blogger that is completely eliminating the thick lines between feminity, masculinity, and queers. His content would sweep you off your feet. He adorns bathrobes like they are the new sexy. Besides that, his makeup celebrates its existence rather than making it a gendered subject.  As much as he looks sophisticated in a kurta pajama, he nonetheless looks like a sunflower in a sundress. Follow him for a fresh dose of content.

Affordable Hype Sneakers That Will Never Go Out Of Style

Published

on

Collecting sneakers is a hobby more popular now than ever before – but it can also be an expensive one. The thinking goes, cool sneakers aren’t cheap and affordable hype sneakers aren’t cool, right? Not necessarily.

Not everyone can afford to constantly pay upwards of $200 for the newest sneaker release. However, getting your hands on a good looking pair of cheap sneakers is actually much easier than most think. Gone are the days where customers have to spend vast amounts of money to look fly from the ground up.

That is why we’ve put together the definitive guide to (relatively) cheap sneakers that we believe should be in every self-respecting sneakerhead’s rotation.

 

Nike Air Force 1

The fact that a true OG like the Nike Air Force 1 can still be picked up on the low makes all those Ls trying to cop the latest hyped sneaker a little more tolerable. If you don’t already own a pair of all-white AF1s, you need to do yourself a favor and stock up. The best part about choosing the Nike Air Force 1 life is that you can find the sneaker at basically any retailer. Also, if you’re looking to start your collection with affordable hype shoes, any AF1 would be a great start.

 

Adidas Originals Gazelle

The Gazelle, the cousin of the Adidas Samba, is as sleek as… well… a real-life gazelle. If you’re sensing a pattern here it’s because there is one. Lower price-point sneakers are often more minimalist and subdued than their more expensive counterparts. The Adidas Originals Gazelle proves this isn’t necessarily a bad thing, with a versatile design that’s easy on the eyes.

 

PUMA Suede

Converse One Star Skate

The ultimate low-top sneaker in black suede, the Converse One Star Skate is made for those of you who actually do skate on occasion. With more foxing in the toe and padding, the sneaker can take more of a beating than most other sneakers, which, when combined with its price of under $100, makes it a very attractive option for those on a shoestring budget.

 

adidas Originals Stan Smith

The Air Force 1 is to Nike what Stan Smith is to Adidas. A classy, sleek silhouette that goes as well with a pair of black skinny jeans as it does with some colorful, summer-ready shorts. Like the AF1, it’s often available on sale at select retailers. If you’re bad at making up your mind, just know that Stan Smith comes in many different colors and materials, meaning there should be a pair for everyone’s tastes and preferences.

Thanks for reading! 🙂

The one thing which pops up on our minds as we think of the royal family is the extravagant dresses and fancy jewellery. As the ultimate jewellery status symbol, tiaras are mostly the reserve of royalty and aristocrats. Heirloom pieces passed down from generation-to-generation, each piece has a history as rich as its design. Take a look at the most famous ones owned by the royal family.

The Diamond Bandeau Tiara

This tiara is possibly one of the most recognised tiaras to date. It is because of the fact that the Duchess of Sussex wore it for her marriage to Prince Harry, in 2018. The diamond and platinum encrusted headband was like many of most famous royal tiaras originally made for Queen Mary in 1932. It was to accommodate one of her prized 10-diamond brooches that was gifted to her by the County of Lincoln. Fellow wearers include Princess Margaret.

It was inherited by Queen Elizabeth II, then lent to Diana on her wedding day in 1981.

The Ultimate Men’s Shoe Guide For Every Season

It’s said that you’re measured on a variety of factors the first time you meet anyone. Mainly, there are three of the key counts. First, is your appearance, your handshake, and your boots! They are probably most significant ones. Also, who said only women need fashion and styling? Men too need an equal amount of fashion elements with their outfits. And with so many choices and combinations available both online and offline, it must be difficult to choose one pair for yourself. To make it easier, we’ve compiled an ultimate Men’s Shoe Guide for you to choose from. 

Men’s Shoe Guide For Summer Season

1. Bright Sneakers

If it’s jeans and a T-shirt or a button-down shirt and shorts, every kind of summer wardrobe can be enlivened with a statement pair! The best part is that a vibrant choice works just as well as it does alongside bold colours and patterns with plain styles in strong shades.

2. White Sneaker

All white shoes are simply a blank canvas which can assume any identity. Wear them with all of the basics you run at home: shorts, T-shirts, chinos, denim, button-down shirts. A clean pair of sneakers with minimal detailing will match pants or even a suit to a low-key street-style vibe for looser dress codes.

3. The Outdoor Sandal

Choose a pair that will not only keep your feet comfortable but will also be able to withstand the outside elements: hills, gravel, fog, mud, lakes and more. Pleasant printed straps only help to strengthen the fact that these are a formidable hot-weather contender.

Men’s Shoe Guide For Spring Season

1. Go Retro!

With a pair of vintage-inspired sneakers — comfort wrapped in bright colorways, take a step back in time. With shorts, they look just as good as with pants and their throwback vibe has the power to make an interesting basic ensemble.

2. Flip-Flop

There’s something you need to wear for spring break, weekend getaways, pool trips or just getting the mail—enter the sandal. When you slip into this spring-to-summer staple made in match-everything earth tones with sturdy fabrics, you can easily wear them outside knowing they look fine.

3. Minimal Sneaker

There’ll always be an of-the-moment suit, dress, or hat that will inevitably fade away — but a classic will stand the test of time in particular. Minimal sneakers go under the timeless umbrella, with a very little flair. Choose a design that you like that doesn’t have any logos, comes in neutral colours.

1. Lug Boot

The robust lug sole, designed for whichever way the weather swings, enhances traction due to deep indentations and grippy friction, while an ankle-length provides additional support when you walk up and down the street. Moreover, try them with straight-leg slacks to get an out-of-office look that suits in-office or your go-to jeans, cuffed to reach the top of the boots right.

2. The Chelsea Boot

If you are on the lookout for a slightly edgier, generally good-looking pair, that is it. A streamlined design with an even simpler wearability factor in an easy, pull-on style means you can turn the most basic look up a notch. So, whether you’re wearing your usual work jeans-and-tee or a skinny-fit suit, there’s a pair that complements whatever look you’re looking for with subtle or loudness.
