Brian Lara, At 50, Is Setting Some Serious Style Goals For People Half His Age
Brian Lara is a cricketing legend that many of our current crop of national cricketers grew up worshipping. Not only was he a star on the field thanks to his fiery batting style in test cricket, but he was also an equally domitable force off the field.
From savage replies to ostentatious questions asked by notable sports journalists, to some really insane records that have stood the test of time for many years, Lara truly is one of the grandest players the sport of cricket has ever seen.
Naturally, for such a person with such flair, fashion and style come naturally. So, we were pleasantly surprised when we recently spotted him outside a notable Mumbai watering hole, in one of the best casual ensembles that we have seen this year.
So much so, that we can safely bet that he has trumped most of Bollywood's finest style gods.
Lara's tropical print shirt, for a start, is really cool and goes really well with his Bohemian image, and is a very subtle reminder of how closely he proudly carries the Carribean heritage with him wherever he goes.
We also love the simplistic silhouette of the shirt. And the print really goes well with his skin tone.
The khaki pants, too, are awesome, considering the ensemble and how they are set in soft contrast against the shirt.
We are a little confused about the rip and the subsequent stitching on his left leg. I guess some celebs are more like us common folk than we had imagined.
As for the shoes, Brian kept it really casual and laid back. That does not mean it was simplistic at all. The leather sneakers with their red and white laces are dope. They are a rather cool way of making plain simplistic sneakers a little more exciting.
Brian is setting some really cool style goals for us. The best thing about them is that they are rather achievable and can be emulated rather easily, with just a few tweaks here and there.
If you ask us, that's way better than what most “style-gurus” out there are doing.
Simple and classy, seems to be the key, doesn't it?
