Embrace tradition, but take it to the next level.
Who You Can Learn It From: Waris Ahluwalia
Indian, Jewelry Designer and Actor
A turban and a beard are a cultural staple for Sikhs, which is why it's awesome that Waris Ahluwalia takes the two into the future by pairing it with slim suits and denim-on-denim outfits. It's rad that he's found a way to balance tradition with a penchant for modern style. We're not saying you should follow suit, but there are plenty of other ways to mix the classic and contemporary without reaching into the archives of Americana. Mandarin style collars and Nehru jackets can look awesome when mixed with other pieces, for example.
