If you are the kind of man who feels limited in fashion choices and is faced with a wardrobe filled only with t-shirts and jeans, you need an education in ethnic wear. In a country as vibrant as India, there is no dearth of fashionable ethnic outfits to choose from. Ethnic wear is a must at any special occasion – a puja, aarti and especially, a wedding.
If you are the groom, then you need regal attire suited to your position on your big day. You might be compelled to dress appropriate to your cultural traditions during the wedding ceremony, but you can play up your fashion quotient at your reception with a dazzling brocade sherwani, a shimmering chudidar and sophisticated jootis. Complete the look with a silk turban and your bride will be vying with you for all the attention.
If you are just attending a wedding or any other ceremonial function, a silk sherwani is still befitting; pair it up with a matching chudidar. Most men like to dress up in layers; go for a Nehru jacket over a kurta and harem pants or a dhoti. Short kurtas are also popular among the men who don’t want to fuss over their clothes, but still want to look ethnic enough to suit the occasion. A good rule of thumb is to choose embroidered outfits. Handmade Chikankari embroidery can make any short or long kurta look stylish and sophisticated, and is well suited for both sombre and festive occasions. The variety of colours and the contrast of shades between the fabric and the embroidery threads highlights the elegance of the ethnic outfit.
