Traditional Outfits for Men to Look Stylish This Diwali
Over the last two years, the Indian menswear scene has seen major fundamental shifts. Designers have used it as a testing ground for new shapes, fabrics, textures, styles, and colours, and men have embraced it all. As much as they have classic pieces in their closets, they have also prioritised current and modish styles in their decor. The availability of a plethora of designs has given every event an opportunity for men to come out looking dashing, with Diwali being the apparent apex to bring their A-game.
Diwali is the moment to shine at the many, many card parties and celebration meals that need to be celebrated in style. And if you have a lot of them to attend, we know you'll want to take a different approach to each one.
The timeless Nehru jacket may take you from a wedding to a formal holiday feast at work, to cocktail hour with the fellas, and then on to the plethora of Diwali scenarios you have planned.
While these jackets are best matched with long and short kurtas, you can also wear them with a shirt and trouser combo for a casual-formal appearance for a workplace Diwali celebration, or with an indo-western set that includes Jodhpuri trousers, dhotis, or salwars. Nehru jackets are an excellent choice when you don't want to wear a blazer but yet want to seem smart and sharp.
The short kurta has pretty well taken over men's closets all over the world, and if you're the kind who is normally opposed to anything ethnic, it's the ideal way to pacify your mother and the fam. From wacky patterned variants to solid-hued ones with more modern designs and details, it'll be the ultimate solution to all your Diwali clothing difficulties.
Kurtas are the most popular option of ethnic clothing for guys since they are fuss-free, comfy, and adaptable. Kurtas for men are available in a wide range of fabrics, colours, and craft styles, and have become much too adventurous in terms of design. The sea of possibilities is much too deep, ranging from printed, lucknowi, and ikkat beauties to embroidered and decorated beauties, straight shapes to asymmetrical hems, cowls, and drapes, delicate pastel colours to vibrant bursting ones. Bonsoir by Akhil Gupta has provided a new twist to the usual long kurtas that can be a good choice for people who are looking to style themselves differently this festive season.
The notion of Indian ethnicity has recently undergone a total revision, with zig-zag silhouettes, zipped detailing, and Kimono-style tie-up kurtas. It's a little too much for more conventional scenarios, but it's ideal for more casual scenes like Diwali card parties. Mix a solid-coloured kurta with joggers in a contrasting tone. These puppies look great with Jodhpur pants.
