With the festival of Rakshabandhan around the corner, the season of celebration is knocking on our doors. It’s time you start planning out your looks and invest in some basic festive pieces that will raise your style quotient!
There are loads of options out there that will help you to look sophisticated and put-together while not being over the top or overwhelming. Here are a few festive staples that are a must in every guy’s wardrobe and will help you ace the fashion game on every occasion.
If you are not in a mood to experiment too much with your style, a Bandhgalla Jacket will be the perfect option for you. It resembles a suit jacket due to its short length and similar button pattern. Available in a wide range of materials, textures, and colors, this versatile jacket can be paired with neat loose pants, or a kurta pajama set for a regal and polished look.
Whatever the era might be, the traditional Dhoti will never go out of style. In modern times it is known as ‘Dhoti Pants’ which is a pre-stitched version of the conventional dhoti. With a matching kurta or a Nehru Jacket, this ensemble will exude a vintage vibe that will make you the center of attention in all events. Apart from being highly trendy and stylish dhoti pants are also super comfortable to wear.
Crisp White Kurta
This is one of the classiest options for the Indian menswear. Considering the unmatched style and elegance it exudes, a crisp white kurta is an absolute must in your wardrobe. It goes with all sorts of pants, jackets, and color combinations. You can experiment with varied kinds of cuts, drapes, and fits to see what suits your personality the best. If you prefer a subtle look, style it with dusty brown or grey trousers.
Our list would have been incomplete without this one. Also known as the Nehru Jacket, a Waistcoat is a style statement in itself. Pick up an embroidered and detailed piece or a color-blocked handloom jacket for a traditional yet sophisticated look. Team it up with a well-fitted shirt of a contrasting color, ankle-skimming pants, and tan shoes to complete this swoon-worthy ensemble.
Sherwanis aren’t just for the wedding season. If you are a fan of the ‘minimalistic’ look, wear a sherwani made with comfortable and breezy fabrics like cotton or linen that will make sure that you look well-dressed while adding a touch of class. Style it up with a contrasting churidar and light floral shawl for a decent look. What will really take it to a different level is an eclectic pair of palazzo pants. Trust us, this unique combination will set you apart from the rest.
If you want to venture out of your comfort zone and try something different, Polo Pants are the way to go. They are very fashionable and bring an element of appeal to your entire appearance. These pants are loose-fitted from the waist to the knees and tight-fitted from the knees to the angles. Wear them with a Jodhpuri Jacket or a draping kurta with beautiful zari work.
Pathani suits have gained immense popularity over the years as many celebrities prefer to adorn themselves with this ethnic attire. It has a ‘nawabi’ or royal touch to it. Flaunt this sober ensemble with a rich raw silk jacket to showcase the Indian ethnicity in a subtle yet distinctive manner. The stiffed collars and cuffed sleeves of the Pathani suit will definitely add a unique charm to your outfit.
To stay at the top of your styling game, don’t forget to pair your apparels with a sleek and matching pair of footwear. Mojari was originated in the state of Punjab and is worn by both men and women to accentuate their traditional attires. Opt for a well-designed pair of shoes to ensure that they fit your feet perfectly and provide you optimum comfort. Pick tan-hued leather Mojaris that will match every outfit, be it ethnic or into-western. You can even pair them with a combination of short Kurta and jeans for a suave look.
