As the wedding day approaches, attention not only shifts towards the bride’s wedding outfit, makeup and styling, but groom's as well. The wedding attire of the groom is given equal importance. Moreover, men have become more aware about the latest fashion trends. Elite fashion designers have created separate line of wedding outfits for men. This has lured grooms to match up to the bride with equal style and sophistication, and what’s a better option than a beautifully designed sherwani!
So, take a look at a few things that you should keep in mind before you buy a sherwani for your most special day.
Originated from Central Asia, sherwani has become one of the most important ethnic attires in the Indian subcontinent. Over the years, it has undergone various changes but the basic royal essence remains intact. Its grandeur makes it an apt choice for the D-day. This coat like kurta can be teamed up with churidar, pajama or a dhoti. From heavy embroidery to simple designs, there is a wide range of designs that adorn sherwanis. You can choose one based on your body type and comfort.
In keeping with the grandeur and splendour of Indian weddings, you must go for a sherwani with heavy work. Embroideries like kasab work, jaal work, Kashmiri work and chikan work look great. Sequins and crystals can add a lot of shimmer and glamorise the complete look.
Designers today are trying to give a new twist to the standard sherwani by incorporating various trendy styles. Achkan style, palazzo style, jacket style, angrakha style, Patiala style and pathani style sherwanis look unique and stylish. However, it is the Indo-western style of sherwani that has become a hot favourite among the younger generation these days. Contemporary style like Jodhpuri suit is a perfect blend of traditional as well as modern elements.
No matter how expensive a sherwani is, its beauty is lost if it does not fit you perfectly. A tailor-made sherwani is a good option because it is designed in accordance to your body type. If you plan to go for readymade sherwanis, make sure you alter them appropriately.
Apart from the embroidery and the cuts, fabric plays an important role. The elegance and sophistication of a high quality fabric like silk is far superior to the cheap fabrics. The colour should suit your skin tone and personality. Since the bride and groom are seen together throughout the wedding, it’s good to match the colour with the bride’s outfit.
A wedding sherwani is often teamed up with matched mojaris that accentuate the regal look. A stole or a scarf with a safa or a turban on the head completes the entire look. With a sherwani, you are sure to get as much attention as the bride!
