For a long time, the wedding industry didn’t pay much attention to grooms and their outfits. It was all about the brides and their intricate lehengas. Now, instead of plain bandhgalas, we have beautiful, ethnic wear for grooms as well. From intricately worked upon wedding sherwanis to modern twists on traditional silhouettes, there is a variety of options out there from which grooms can choose.
Here are 6 different silhouettes for Indian grooms who want to go beyond the conventional outfits.
1. Royal vibes in a sherwani
Wedding sherwanis can make or break a groom’s look on his big day. If it’s styled well, a sherwani can make you look stunning. You can choose between various styles as well. If your aim is to look casual yet effortlessly elegant, choose a flared sherwani with a plain kurta under it, like the Study By Janak outfit pictured above. The work on such a piece will do all the talking for you. However, if you’re looking for a completely regal look, you should choose an intricate sherwani with a contrasting dupatta or stole. This look is more formal and, paired with the right jewellery, can really increase your fashion quotient.
2. Casual silhouettes for a small function
Even if it’s your own wedding, you can’t wear sherwanis for every function. But that doesn’t mean you have to choose boring outfits. Pair a semi-formal jacket with jeans and a scarf or choose a more traditional look with a casual kurta and pants. Not only do such outfits look great, they are also super comfortable and can be worn for any post-wedding parties as well.
3. Ethnic jackets with salwars
If you want a more ethnic look with jackets, pair them with dramatic salwars. The flow of salwars is typically Indian and lends a traditional vibe to your outfit. Choose a salwar in a complimenting colour to highlight the best aspects of your outfit. For a casual function, choose muted colours like white or beige. For more formal functions, you can go a step further and choose tones of gold.
4. Asymmetrical jackets and kurtas
If you do love a traditional coat, and don’t want to steer too far from it, choose one with a twist. An asymmetrical jacket with small embellishments or fine embroidery will make for a unique wedding look. Apart from being unconventional, these jackets also add a fun element to a formal look. You can also choose an asymmetrical kurta under a traditional, ethnic jacket to give your outfit an edge.
5. Formal drapes
One-shoulder drapes can make the dullest outfit come alive. You can find jackets and kurtas with such drapes at Study By Janak. Apart from the groom, this look can also suit the men in the groom’s family. The colours of these drapes can also complement the bride’s outfit on the wedding day or the reception.
6. Exude elegance in a tuxedo
Perfect for a reception or a formal cocktail, you can never go wrong with a good tuxedo. What you can do is take the style quotient up a few notches by choosing unconventional styles and colours, like the tuxedos shown above. The great part about choosing a tuxedo is that you can wear it for a host of formal events later as well. The western silhouette doesn’t limit it to just weddings or Diwali parties.
