Looking forward to the festive season ?
It’s the official time of the year to raise the style stakes and don your traditional wear.
As daunting or as surprising as it may seem, traditional wear has the potential to make a man look regal, handsome, fashionable and ‘sanskari’ all at the same time. Ethnic wear defines your roots and being rooted takes your personality a notch up. From breezy cotton suits to linen waistcoats to jodhpuri bandhgalas, there are a plethora of options for you to choose from and none of them dissapoint. Well no doubt, you have to choose the right fit and lay some hard work in styling because traditional wear might get tricky at times. But don’t worry, that’s what we are here for.
So are you ready for a festive alteration ? Here’s a few personalised options and tips from our side that will make the job easier for you.
Looking for a safe yet stylish option ? A monochromatic look is your best buy. Pair a solid colored kurta with the same shade or tint of ‘Nehru Jacket’ and white churidars. A classic monochromatic look suits men of all age groups. Look for a well fitted kurta with skimming pants and complete the look with tan juttis or kolhapuris. This look transcends you from looking good to looking your best.
An embroidered shawl or scarf worn over a neutral ensemble gives you a classy yet rooted vibe. Go for a sherwani from the beige color palette and pair them with golden jodhpuri pants, to stand out from the crowd. You can style them with tan brogues and a statement eyewear for a daytime function.
A fusion look can quench your thirst for being in the good books of your parents but at the same time help you look cool for the gram. Pair an asymmetric cut kurta with pants and sneakers to escalate your style factor. You can add an extra zing to your outfit by adding layers and prints in the form of a semi-traditional jacket.
A complete indo ensemble which consists of a ‘peshawari salwar’ paired with a collared kurta and punjabi juttis will surely turn all the eyes in the room. To steal the show, top it all with a turban and you’re ready to become the talk of the party.
- Prints can be a risky choice but if you master the art of styling them, there is no replacement. A heavy indian printed shirt with rolled up sleeves, paired with a printed inner lined silk jacket makes for a heady ensemble.
In a mood for a casual yet an ethnic look ? Here’s the best idea to your rescue, wear an ikkat printed shirt or a short kurta paired with khaki trousers and a timeless pair of chinos.
We hope that these ideas help you in dressing up differently for every festival or occasion. Have a smooth sail this season and don’t forget to add your own little touch to every outfit.
