What’s the one thing you notice when you browse through Rohit Saraf‘s Instagram? His heart-stealing smile and his edgy style. Utilitarian details, layering, colour-blocking and print-play dominate his vibrant feed, which will also give you a tip or two on how to strike an effortless pose. Currently, the actor is in the news for his role as Rishi in Mismatched and Rahul Avasthi in Ludo—both airing on Netflix. And simultaneously, Rohit is also on a sartorial roll; winning hearts for his super fun outfit choices. Specifically for the promotions of his latest two projects mentioned above. Styled by Ruhani Singh, Rohit’s promotional looks have three recurring elements: quirk, wearability and oomph. If you missed to check them out, scroll ahead for a quick lowdown on the looks and you’ll know just why they deserve your attention.
Best way to elevate a basic look? Easy! Just layer. That’s what Rohit did for one of his looks for the promotions of his film Ludo. The actor opted for a pair of black jeans, that he teamed with a black shirt printed with a linear pattern. He spruced up his look with a fun denim jacket that came with black and white striped sleeves, leather pocket flaps and collar and patches of floral threadwork. Black chunky shoes from Buffalo rounded off his look.
A monochrome palette won Rohit’s vote for another promotional event for Ludo. His picks: a white shirt, a white t-shirt and a black trouser. The standout element? Most definitely the black and white street photographs printed on the shirt. The actor wore his show-stealing shirt over a white, round-neck t-shirt and neatly tucked it in his pants. Adding the perfect finishing touch to the look via the black sneakers from Melissa, Rohit aced that ’90s vintage vibe he was going for!
Taking the formal route for look number 3, Rohit wore a colour-blocked pantsuit from Line Out Line. The grey suit comprised a dual-toned blazer with one side stark black and the other, a light grey, worn with grey pants. The actor layered his blazer over a black and white striped shirt that only added to the goodness of the entire outfit! Black shoes received approval from Rohit yet again. This time, he wore ankle-length boots from dmo dot.
An all-denim combination has carved a special place for itself in the trend charts. And if you don’t get the fuss around denim-on-denim and why it’s justified, here’s an apt example that’ll convince you. Wearing Dior separates for yet another promotional round of Ludo, Rohit proves why all-denim outfits are a classic in today’s day. The inside of his denim jacket was printed with the brand’s logo that made a sneaky cameo. The actor wore his jacket over a plain back t-shirt with zipper details and completed his look with Dior sneakers.
Going for monochrome separates yet again is Rohit’s Dhruv Kapoor co-ord set that he wore for the promotions of Mismatched. The set consisted of a black jacket with white threadwork on the borders, that he wore over a white shirt making a strong case for light layering. Black sneakers were given a preference yet again. This time, he rounded off his look with a pair from ShoeWorks.
At another promotional event for Mismatched, Rohit decided to keep things cosy and comfortable. He wore a light pink sweatshirt from Bloni with flared denim from HOS. The pants came with funky utility pockets, adding an edgy vibe to the entire look. White sneakers with sky blue laces from Skechers completed his look for the day.
Rohit took to his Instagram expressing his happiness and excitement as both Ludo and Mismatched were trending #1 on Netflix. The post saw the actor dressed in a highly glossy silver jacket from Bloni. The blingy number was worn with a plain black t-shirt to not take the spotlight away from the jacket. The outfit is an ideal example of the equation: OTT yet subtle.
