Boyish charm
Every person has a sense of style in his or her own right. Yet there are only few who'd attract a second glance, who have the power to make a camera go zoom on them. The magic could lie in tousled hair, or it could lie in torn jeans. This week's face in the crowd Tarandeep Singh Bawa, an MBA student, may not make us fall in love with his style in the first glance but his conviction makes him deserve a definite second chance.

Your sense of style is…

Tarandeep Singh Bawa I believe style is all about personal comfort. It's also something that elevates your personality in your social circle and attracts the attention of your companions. And if one believes in his sense of style, it further gives you the confidence to interact.

Latest addition in the wardrobe…

Many. Since life is full of so many different occasions, there's one for each. A crisp white kurta pyjama, a pair of jeans by Guess and a tee by Gantt…

Brand freak or street smart?

For me clothing is always for personal comfort, be it branded or picked from the streets. Mainly the fabric, texture and cut play a vital role while selecting any garment.

Choose one: Sporty, Glamorous or Chic


Favourite style icon?

Amitabh Bachchan. The man knows how to dress up, carry himself…

Who's the worst-dressed celebrity around?

Govinda for his loud sense of dressing.

One fashion trend you don't understand…

FTV-Creations. I think they are wild, weird and not wearable at all.

Your take on accessories

They should be limited and have that exclusive and individualistic touch.

What boosts your confidence

A sense of belief in whatever you are wearing. I guess compliments can make anyone's day.
