When it comes to men’s ethnic wear, there’s no dearth of options, especially during the festive season. However, getting your styling right for the occasion is always a matter of doubt and discussion. Is the look too heavy, too uncomfortable or too casual? These are just some of the questions that keep most men from experimenting. Here are a few style tips for men to ease this festive ethnic-wear confusion.
1. The Punjabi Suit
Punjabi suits are back to smoking up the ramp with their hard-to-ignore macho swag. Ideally, opt for a monotone top and bottom that creates a clean silhouette. Roll up those sleeves, put on your glares, slip on a stylish pair of shoes and you are set to scorch the season!
2. Denim Compliments
For those functions that need an Indo-western touch, here’s a quick fix. Pair your favourite kurta with denims instead of the traditional pajamas or churidaars. For those who like experimenting, pick on interesting shades of denims like greys, whites or black. You can also play around with the length of your kurta and sport a Nehru jacket to amp up the look.
3. Fun Floral Prints
If you are not in a mood for an out-of-the-box look, kill the look by going basic! Make a statement by pairing a printed kurta with cowl pants instead of churidaars or patialas.
4. Traditional Dhotis
A short kurta with a dhoti that is loose at the thigh and tapers at the calves is the ideal look for the festive season. When going with classic churidaar, moccasins and brogues work wonders with the outfit.
