Is it a rule to wear different sunglasses for different events?
Chintan Kashyap, New Delhi
You can't look like you're about to go for a skydive if you're headed for an awards show, can you?
Stick with simple metal or black frames for formal or business settings, bring out the futuristic Prada or Armani shades for weekend brunch, and save the motocross-inspired specs for backcountry jaunts.
Will I look stupid in motorcycle-inspired clothing if I've never ridden a bike?
Neelu Chaturvedi, Guwahati
Probably. But the trick is to look motorcycle-inspired, not obsessed. Keep it to one biker item per outfit. A jacket, for instance. Look for something with the standard style accents-the shorter-than-usual length, zip-up front, rugged leather, and tough hardware detailing. Ditch the padded shoulders and belted waist. Pair it with denim jeans and a cotton T-shirt.
