Be it life lessons or fashion pointers, there’s a lot to learn from Shah Rukh Khan. The Badshah of Bollywood is known to follow a very busy schedule, but he still manages to deliver on the fashion front. It’s not just his red carpet appearances we are talking about, the actor also delivers on the casual front. Also, you can’t overlook the superb attitude with which he carries his clothes. One look at him and you realise that it’s true when they say the way you carry your clothes has got a lot to do with your attitude. On his birthday, we take a look at the superstar’s style quotient.

SRK carries a basic ‘T-shirt and jeans’ look with as much ease as he does a tuxedo. When it comes to casual wear, the actor’s sartorial choice usually ranges from blue’s to blacks. But that’s not the only thing you will find in his wardrobe. He also swears by white. He likes to keep it simple and you will hardly find him sporting bright colours.

Who doesn’t love men in black and when it’s Shah Rukh Khan, even better. It’s no secret that the actor loves black and he carries the red carpet look in black with so much panache that it’s the next best thing to 007. He is also seen wearing a lot of waistcoats. Here, the actor can be seen sporting it with a crisp white shirt with rolled-up sleeves. Way to go!

He also does distressed denims well. And pairing it up with a buttoned-down shirt/tee takes it to the next level, especially with his chiselled jawline and a sculpted physique. In fact, he does them a favour by being in it. Stylish and classy at the same time.

Not everyone has the demeanour to carry off a checkered coat with panache but it’s King Khan we are talking about. Here, the actor gets the dynamics right by pairing it with a white shirt and black trousers. Picture perfect. Also, we hardly see men experimenting with layering but SRK is not the one to shy away from it.
