Which Accessories make the Perfect Add-ons to your Indian Outfits?

Thought about what accessories you can flaunt with your Indian ethnic wear? If you thought accessories are only for the fairer sex, you definitely haven’t been introduced to the right ones. Here are all of the accessories you can pair with your traditional ethnic wear:

  • The right Footwear

Mojaris or mojdis have forever been the footwear that people choose to pair with an ethnic outfit. For an even more traditional touch, you could also try jootis with a curled up front that was considered oh-so-superior in the past. Today, instead of a status symbol, this footwear is used to make style statements.

  • Jackets with an Ethnic Touch

  • Head Gear

While you can go without a head gear during festivities, weddings are the perfect occasions to don on a safa, or turban atop your head. Called the safa, this clothing item can be matched with your outfit to make your look all the more glamourous.

  • Pearly Malas

Malas have been flaunted by the maharajas of the old in most potraits we have seen so far. When you have a sherwani or a kurta pajama on, you are as much a royalty, making it the ideal event to flaunt those pearly malas in.

  • Ethnic Brooches

Brooches made of gemstones and attached to delicate strings can be tucked onto your sherwani or kurta pajama to amp up the look further. The sparkling stones are sure to make your outfit look even more regal.

How to Style your Outfit Right?

Are you as bad at styling your outfits as most of the male population? We are here to help you get through the ordeal without letting your head explode. Here are some basic rules you need to keep in mind, and follow, when the time comes:

  • Color-coordinate the Outfit

The worst thing you can do with an ethnic outfit is pairing it wrong. You may have purchased the most gorgeous Indian traditional men’s clothing online but would fail to bring out its beauty if you choose the wrong color to contrast with it. From the choice of bottom and the dupatta to the safa you tie atop your head and the footwear and accessories you choose, all make a difference in making your look or ruining it completely.

  • Stay Subtle with the Accessories

Over-accessorizing is one setback that takes away the glamor from even the most elegant of dresses. If you have a men’s traditional wear donned on that is elaborately embroidered, make sure you choose sober accessories that do not overwhelm your overall look. On the other hand, if you are more inclined to choosing simple patterns of ethnic wear, go ahead and deck up with the best of accessories such as a brooch, pearl malas, etc. to balance out the look well.

  • Decide what to Wear according to the Occasion

Before you get your sherwani or kurta pajama out of the closet, or set out to buy a sherwani or kurta pajama to add to your collection, ask yourself what occasion you intend to wear it to. Remember, not all sherwanis are fit for every occasion. And traditional ethnic wear as an outfit as well can never right for every event you attend. While celebratory events such as a wedding, a festival, and anniversary celebration, etc. are perfect events to flaunt your sherwanis and kurtas, events such as a New Years’ Eve party in a club are definitely not. So, make sure you choose the occasion and your outfit well before putting it on.
