There’s no better time to try this drool-worthy look than winter. Plaid shirts, undone beards, and casually tousled hair is what the lumber-sexual man is all about. This look is low on maintenance, but hot nonetheless!

3. The Boy Next door

Not all the men out there are that interested in dealing with long tresses and unkempt beards or going 007. Some like to keep it low key, but nevertheless stylish. If you’re one of them, this one’s for you. Throw on a black Tee, ripped jeans, and canvas trainers, and you’re good to go.

4. The peppy formal look

For those men who like to use the mid-way and keep it semi-formal, this look is all about striking the right balance between casual and formal. Think jeans with formal suits, formal shirts with colorful chino pants, or just using quirky bow-ties, all are makings of the peppy-formal man!

5. The Desi Swag

Why Comfy Is The New Sexy!

Gone are the days of wearing uncomfortable corsets, stilettoes or insanely high maintenance hairdos. It’s all about being comfortable and breezy now. Many Hollywood stars ditched their high heels and went for sneakers, some even went bare footed for various red carpet events (Kristen Stewart for instance). Point being, you don’t need to squeeze yourself to fit into that one piece, or go out of your comfort zone to look/feel hot. Here are a few other things that are oh-so-comfy, yet so sexy!

Embracing the minimal makeup look

Not only is the minimal makeup look easy to do, it’s also very forgiving on your skin. The layers of makeup that we normally cake up can do a lot of damage, and living off it for some time can do wonders. Plus, who doesn’t like the fresh & dewy no-makeup look!

Own that messy bun!

French braids? Milkmaid braids? Straightened hair? Bleached hair? Well, why not try the easy-peasy bed head look! Just run your hands through your hair and tie it into a loose bun over your crown as you go about your day. You won’t need tons of product or styling accessories for this one. It’s just effortlessly chic!

Wear clothes made out of organic and breathable fabric

Give synthetic fabric a break and go for cotton, linen or khadi, especially if you live in a tropical climate like India’s. Rock that flowy cotton gown on those sunny days and get the temperature soaring!

Ditch those heels

There was time when sexy meant devilish red heels! Be it an office meeting or your that family wedding dinner, your outfit was considered incomplete without heels. But those days are long gone. You can opt for ballets, sneakers or trainers instead, and tip-toe your way into a happy life, well, at least for your feet and back!

Try a new low maintenance haircut

There are better ways to upgrade your looks than going under the knife or fitting into impossible outfits. How about a refreshing haircut! It’s the best and easiest way to effortlessly get a drastic change in your appearance.

So, the next time you are struggling with the thousand trends and fads and which ones to follow, just let loose and take the easy way out by following these few tips. 😉

Simple Tricks To Make Your Home Look Bigger

With real estate prices skyrocketing, most city folk ends up settling for small apartments, just enough to get by. But who says a small house has to look all cramped up and congested? You can make small tweaks in your living space to make it look spacious and cozy. Here’s how!

Space it out

Don’t place your furniture against walls. Sometimes placing a piece at an angle or surrounded by open space will make the room look bigger.

Use the walls

When it comes to smaller spaces like kitchen or bathrooms, utilize the walls to stack things up in order to keep rest of the space free.

De-clutter

This goes without saying, if you haven’t used something in a year, get rid of it right away and clear the clutter.

 Use multi-functional pieces of furniture

Use furniture items that have more than one use. For instance use a huge trunk as a coffee table and use the same to store books/pillows or blankets.

Use Mirrors

Place an over-sized statement mirror in your house to instantly give an illusion of a bigger space.

We hope these tips help you liven up your home a bit and make it look spacious as comfy! What’s more? You can shop for all home accessories and furniture at Inorbit!

Grooming Essentials For Every Man

Every man needs to have these following grooming essentials to look dapper each day.

Men easily tend to ignore daily grooming routines. Many don’t realize the importance of grooming. Especially in the long run. Skin, hair, nails can be damaged by daily exposure to pollution, dust & also other factors like age, stress, etc. If you don’t know where to start, don’t worry, pick these few essential products and include them in your daily routine to take better care of your skin, hair and nails & look dapper each day!

Skin Clearing Face Wash

All the stress, sweat and erratic weather can spell disaster for your skin. You need a gentle cleanser that will penetrate the pores and leave it refreshed and cleansed.

Our best pick: Neutrogena Men invigorating face wash

Lip Balm

For all those men who wish to have soft and kiss-worthy lips a lip balm does the job and well!  Get rid of those chapped or wind-burned lips in a moment.

Our best pick: Jack Black Intense Therapy Lip Balm

Shaving Cream

Well if this one’s not a bare necessity for men, I don’t know what is! While choosing your shaving cream, choose one that has a good slather to it and doesn’t leave your face dry and parched, a cream that has a glycerin base works the best.

Our Best Pick: Gillette Mach3 Irritation Defense Soothing Gel

Moisturizer

While most men are busy grooming their hair and beards, their skin remains neglected. Moisturizing allows your skin to be hydrated and also nourishes it giving your skin the healthy luster that it deserves.

Our Best Pick: Nivea, Men, Express Absorption, Revitalizing Lotion

Hair trimmer

If there’s one thing that most men are trying to tame, its their hair! Invest in a quality hair trimmer, and use it often! Be it your beard or that stray hair on your ear or neck, a hair trimmer is your savior!

Our Pick: Philips All in One Multigroom Series QG3347/15 Trimmer For Men

Fragrance

Necessity? Oh yes!  It’s very very important to choose a good perfume/ deodorant and the right one! The right perfume doesn’t necessarily have to be expensive, but it should essentially have good quality base ingredients. Musky and woody bases are considered most suitable for men.

Our Pick: Musk Eau de Toilette Spray, Davidoff Cool Waters

 Post Shave Balm

A shave is incomplete without this one. You should choose a post shave balm/lotion that calms your skin and prevent razor bumps from scraping a blade across your face leaving your face refreshed.

Our Pick: NIVEA for MEN Sensitive

Hand Cream

This might seem like a luxury, but once you use a hand cream you will see why it’s not. Your hands are tough and rough, a heavy-duty hand cream will not only make your hands smooth but also remove all traces of odor & heal dry cracked hands in a jiffy.

Our Pick: Vaseline Men Hand Lotion.

Basic manicure set

It’s not cool to have untidy and ill groomed fingernails. You need to keep them trimmed and in shape all the time if you want to come across as a man who is well groomed. Also, don’t butcher your nails with cheap quality nail cutters. Instead, invest in a pair of clippers, nail scissors, nail filer, nail cleaners & a cuticle cream.

 Beard Oil

For that gorgeous and luscious “mooch” beard oil is your go-to product. Not only does Beard oil moisturize your facial hair but also the skin beneath. It acts as a double-duty styling agent to keep your beard looking shiny and groomed & not dusty, flaky and shaggy.

Our Pick: Beardo Beard oil

Now that you know of all these essentials, go out there and get those ladies swooning with the new ‘well- groomed’ you!

Every Girl Needs To Have These 5 Hair Products To Keep Their Locks Looking Dapper

Not all of us are blessed with those fairy-tale locks. Managing hair can be a pain and even on days when your hair’s behaving you need a little tender loving care to keep them tame! For days when you’re having a bad hair day or even otherwise, here are a few hair products you absolutely need to have in your kitty.

#1

Dry Shampoo

Dry Shampoo works exactly like wet shampoo but without the need of all the lathering and rinsing. In a fast paced life like ours this little bottle of spritz can be a lifesaver. All you need to do is spray and get rid of all the oiliness and get sleek, shiny, fresh feeling hair.

#2

Hair Mask

The pollution and dust that our hair is subjected to every single day can heavily damage our hair. Hair masks are an effective way of restoring the nutrients back to our hair and protect it from further damage.  You can use an “over-night leave in mask” and wash it off in the morning and be off to work. Easy Peasy!

#3

Heat Defense Styling Spray

Most of us love styling our hair with the curling/straightening iron but conveniently ignore any precaution to protect it from the heat. Over time, such styling tricks could do irreversible damage and that’s why it’s very, very important to use a heat defense styling spray before you styling.

#4

Volumizing mousse

You’ve watched that youtube styling video and you try it, but your hair just falls flat. We’ve all been there! All you need is a volumizing mousse, which basically pumps some extra volume and gives your hair that full look and you get that gorgeous lift!

#5

Hair Spray

This is probably the oldest product on the list yet the most under-rated. Not only does hair spray keep your hair in place and styled for long hours but it also makes it smell absolutely awesome and fresh throughout the day! And in an environment like India where it’s so humid and sweaty always, this one’s a must have!

If you have any more such must have products that you want us to add in this list, mention it in the comments section.
