THE ART OF ETHNIC

5 months ago | BY Huma Hazarika Sharma

Festive edition 2018

 

Men have been going head-to-head with women when it comes to fashun for years now, and we love what they’ve been doing with ethnic clothes which can usually be such a total snoozefest, but are so not anymore. With the festive season kicking off this month & the endless shaadis on the cards, men are going more experimental everywhere, but for those of you a lil more reserved, we’ve handpicked ensembles that will totally amp up your look in a hot minute.

BROTHER-OF-THE-BRIDE DUTIES

The classic white kurta pyjama with a bandhgala combo is the go-to for most men, and is the ideal uniform for the brother-of-the-bride really.

THE MALLU WEDDING
Let’s admit it, the world’s gone from 6 degrees of separation to literally 2 degrees, and nearly everyone has a friend getting hitched in far-off Scotland where you’ve had to wear a kilt as a friend of the groom, and similarly the typical Mallu wedding requires that you wear a dhoti at the very least, no? A neutral-hued one worn with a cream kurta and traditional jutis will ensure that you fit right in.

ONE OF THE GROOMSMEN 

The Indian groomsman has come a long way in the last few years (sartorially of course), and we love how the groom and his band of friends aren’t afraid of pink, or florals any longer, and sneakers and Lennon glasses are just as commonplace as a black tux.

THE GROOMSMAN: PART DEUX
If your brother from another mother comes from a fam that’s a tad reserved and might frown upon those sneaks and that colour, you can always go more traditional in a maroon kurta pyjama+printed bandhgala+juttis+Lennon glasses instead.

DIWALI WITH THE FAM

As much as we’re over bursting crackers, Diwali is something that’s pretty much been the highlight of our lives as far as festivals go. And, what’s festive dressing without a bright yellow kurta to signify the festival of lights? Pair it with a pair of black chappals and glasses.

WHEN YOU’RE HEADED TO A NIKAH 

Nothing says nikah (the Islamic wedding) dressing than a dapper understated kurta pyjama worn with a printed bandhgala, a matching pocket square and chappals.

CARDS PARTY

Many a ‘cards party’ connoiseur will tell you that cards parties come in all shapes, sizes and degrees of grandeur. What with it being such an auspicious time of the year, they do go on till the wee hours and apart from an ensemble (read: asymmetrical kurta+designer juttis) that will make the prettiest girl in the room blush, we’d also recommend you carry a pair of wayfarers for when you leave with the spoils of the night.
