23 November 2017
Whatever the occasion is, when the time comes we always find ourselves struggling with the dressing up part. There are many factors you have to keep in mind such as timing, lighting, weather and obviously the occasion
He is the Nawab of Patuadi and an ace actor from Bollywood; he carries the pride of one of the most prestigious royal families in India and the style icon for the younger audience. Being closely tied with Polo and a whole League of polo the Bhopal-Pataudi Polo Cup named after his father NawabMansoor Ali Khan Pataudiand his maternal grandfatherNawabHamidullah Khan of Bhopal in recognition of their enormous contribution to Polo he carries a lot of responsibilities which he made them look very easy. He proved that he loves this sport…Polo as much as his father and grandfather did. By organising the event himself after his father’s unfortunate death andshowing off his dressing sense in major Polo events in India he made the statement very clear that he is Nawab of style too. Let’s have a look on his polo wardrobe.
1. In 2006 at the event of Bhopal-Pataudi Polo Cup organised by Saif’s family at Jaipur Polo Ground, New Delhi. The Nawab of Pataudi made his presence and defined his upbeat and inspiring personality by his dressing. He managed to direct everyone’s eyeballs towards him in blue jeans and dark blue shirt complementing his golden comfy blazer. He has a way of dressing which radiates his uncanny personality which inspires people around him and the younger generation.
2. This 6 buttoned navy blue breasted jacket outfit paired up with loose khaki pants is explaining what being Saif Ali Khan is all about, the rich history of his family and his life as an actor. Though he is not a Polo player himself but the classic brown boots in this outfit shows his enthusiasm towards the legendary sport. This outfit is a great fusion of being sporty yet it has a class to it.
3. This is another strong appearance by our very own Chhote Nawab. In this 3 piece light grey suit paired up with a blue tie with yellow stripes on it he is making a strong style statement. Once he said in an interview that he likes to clean his shoes with champagne which shows how sincere he is about his appearance and his nicely polished black shoes are the proof of it. Though he appeared with his Glamorous and a style icon herself wife Kareena Kapoor Khan, somehow he managed to steal the spotlight for himself. Here, he is relaying the message clearly that how he serious he is about this sport and his never-ending love for Polo.
4. This is the most relevant and sporty outfit a Polo enthusiast can wear, that too if you are a Bollywood and a Nawab of a princely state. I guess it’s the boldest move by Saif Ali Khan with the navy blue polo tee tucked inside loose fitted pants he resembles like a Polo player himself and the brown boots and the gloves in right hand completes the overall look. His family gave so much to this sport and it's quite clear by his distinct style.Whatever the occasion is, when the time comes we always find ourselves struggling with the dressing up part. There are many factors you have to keep in mind such as timing, lighting, weather and obviously the occasion, and if you are dressing up for a polo match it can be even trickier because polo attracts over 5000 people over a year and the ace actors and style icons. As the Polo match day is a fun and sporting day comfort is a big consideration, and it is also important to make sure that your outfit suits your personality.
