Bet on the Shehnais and start perfecting your dance moves as the wedding season is in full swing. Whether it’s your sibling’s wedding or your best friend’s wedding, being on the ‘I do’ crew is always exciting. The role requires you to be on your feet all the time while attending to the bride / groom’s needs – but that doesn’t mean you can’t look good tackling an emergency! Take inspiration from our favorite Bollywood men to choose the perfect outfit for the celebrations:
Asymmetry all along the line
Give your look a dynamic touch and leave the conventions like Aditya Seal with his asymmetrically cut kurta by Siddartha Tytler.
Everyone is talking about velvet this season! Kartik Aryan’s green velvet Manish Malhotra Sherwani is perfect for the evening events during these winter months.
Metallic shine is an instant party hit! Rajkummar Rao takes the adventure one step further by pairing his metallic blue Amit Aggarwal jacket with black harem pants.
As Anjali from K3G rightly put it: “Lucknow da kurta, Pathani salwar; tab lage mard, varna lage bekaar. “
Experiment with your bandhgala
Ishaan Khatter looks regal in a mauve ensemble by Sarah & Sandeep. Take a page from his style book and add some pizzazz to your regular bandh gala by opting for an off-center style with buttons on the shoulder. Create an asymmetrical balance by pairing it with a sloping hem kurta.
Or keep it classic
You can never go wrong with the classics. Ranbir Kapoor embodies sophistication in his midnight blue Sabyasachi Sherwani with silver buttons.
Turn up the color
Why should the bridesmaids have all the fun? Add color to your outfit like Siddharth Malhotra to get the party started and don’t forget a statement brooch to go with it.
Or take the black and white route
Not a fan of colors? No problem! Take inspiration from Siddharth Malhotra’s monochrome Shantnu & Nikhil ensemble and go for some intricate black and white prints.
Make your outfit more interesting by introducing some layers. Follow Varun Dhawan’s footsteps and wear a pleated, transparent kurta under your sherwani.
Let Ayushman show you how cool a Nehru jacket can look when dipped in pink and paired with a kurta with a draped effect. Pro tip: swap out the formal shoes for cool sneakers for extra comfort to dance the night away with.
Sherwanis and kurtas aren’t the only options – take Ranveer Singh’s inspiration for choosing a well-fitting suit. Are you feeling adventurous? Go for a metallic or embellished blazer to make a statement.
