A well-dressed man is sure to make heads turn. And if he manages to give the classic, traditional wear a modern twist what would you say to that? The men have left the days of the heavy bandhglalas or sherwani’s behind, instead giving these timeless classics a modern twist. No longer do the bandhgala or sherwani’s and other Indian wear describe a wedding or a festive scene, they are making waves for their modern looks. Well none of us wants to carry those heavily embroidered kurtas and at the same time don’t want to look underdressed wearing the minimal FabIndia kurtas. In that case, let’s have a look at the trend which have been in the market for decades and still works when it comes to choose something for the ethnic scenario.
Indo-western look is one of the trends which can be easily found in our B-town celebrities. Actresses flaunting shirts with lahengas or an embellished kurta with trousers, that’s a site which is quite easy to see these days. A strong combination of both traditional familiarity of Indian wear that we somehow can’t do without along with the comfort and ease of western attire, fusion wear is ruling the roost in B-Town and returning to the mainstream fashion circuits in full swing. It’s the age of mix, match, wear and flaunt. So while women does it so flawlessly, we men are no far behind. It’s much easier and simple for us to sport this trend. And when the festive season is around the clock, why not to try being a bit Bollywood. We all love a bit of glamour, don’t we.
Peach is such a color which can be worn at day as well as night. And as per Indian traditions, we all want to wear bright and lively colors on any festive occasion- be it Diwali or the wedding season. Therefore, this peach kurta was a perfect pick for this occasion. And when I have been raving about the Indo western trend, I knew how I wanted to mix and match this kurta the moment I bought it.
I kept the tone of the outfit neutral by adding a beige Zara blazer. I chose to wear the white churidar (and not some western trousers) to keep the look more Indian. Adding a multi colored pocket square with hues of peach, blue and beige, gave the outfit some more color on the top and complemented the kurta as well. And then I balanced the colors with my blue leather chappals. Throw in a metal watch for the final touches.
When it comes to Indian traditions and clothing, we have been seeing the similar heavy kurtas and a lot of bling work. It was high time to have a modern take on our ethnic staple i.e. Kurtas. Though I tried to keep the whole look little muted as this is the way I wanted to style it, but you can always add a bit more to this look.
If going for a wedding, instead of a blazer add a jacquard or brocade nehru jacket. which will definitely lift up the whole look. Or you can also try some embroidered jootis with the same look. Don’t over do the trend as this might make it look very similar to what we have been running away from.
So with some very simple tips, do try this trend this festive season and make sure you do it right and rock this ethnic dandy look how you have been rocking the rest. Till then, Stay Stylish and have a happy festive season 🙂
