Let’s admit it, weddings are one of the few occasions where you can flaunt your Desi style quotient. And we’re not just talking about women, but men too. Gone are the days when a suit and tie would be enough for men at a wedding. In today’s era, it’s all about trendy traditional wear.
And if you are still confused about what to wear for your best friend’s wedding ceremonies like a printed kurta or a tuxedo, then we have some good news. We got in touch with famous fashion influencer Chakit Chawla who shared amazing traditional wear looks for men and tod us how to ace them to make heads turn! Guys, what are you waiting for, let’s get started!
Sherwani is the baseline for a marriage outfit! They can be worn with a turban or can be lightened up with a dupatta. If you are a big fan of ethnic wear, then go for a light coloured sherwani- either cream or beige and pair it up with a maroon coloured pyjama. To give it some bling, accessorize it with feathers and brooches. Complete your look by adding Kolhapuri chappals or juttis.
2. Printed Kurta
Pair up the printed kurta with denim, white pyjamas and chinos pants. Wear a white pyjama and pair it up with juttis and you are ready to slay the wedding season. Go for stripes, solid colours, embroidery or check kurtas to make head turns!
3. Side Button Kurta
Style up the short side button kurta with denim for a day Mehendi function. But if it’s a knee-length, then you should pair it up a pyjama or herald pants and jutti. You can accessorize it with brooches and feathers, but side button kurtas look the best when they are kept subtle and straightforward.
4. Nehru Jackets
Nehru jackets play a significant role in the styling game. They have a way of making men look even more handsome! The best bit about these Nehru jackets is that they look best for both Indian and Western clothes. Nehru Jackets are perfect for all those semi-formal post-shaadi parties.
Go for a printed colour Nehru jacket if you are wearing a solid kurta inside or vice versa. For a versatile look, add a coloured pocket square or brooches.
5. Classic Black suit
You can never go wrong with a classic black suit! If not for the wedding, you can opt for this colour for your post-shaadi functions like Reception. There are trillions of styles you can come up with a black suit- you can take it up with a printed or solid colour or striped shirt. You can make it a three-piece suit by adding a waistcoat! Accessorize it with a tie, bow, suspenders underneath or a pocket square. Just wear a classic shirt with a black suit, and you are ready to slay!
Tuxedo is considered to be the premium of the suitings! Pair it up with a classic and cauterize shirt. Don’t wear chinos with tuxedo rather opt for a trouser. Wear proper formal shoes and not loafers. To complete the look, add a bow or a tie and a pocket square. Velvet tuxedos are quite in these days. So, you can go for a blue or wine coloured tuxedo this wedding season!
7. Bandhgala Suit
Bandhgala suits work perfectly for pre-wedding and wedding ceremonies! You can pair your outfit with a maroon shirt as it will add a perfect contrast. You can add black shoes and watch to make it look more elegant. Also, watch out for the structure as opting for ill-fitting sleeves can break your look.
