Traditional Men’s Sherwani At Nihal Fashions

The trend of wearing sherwanis for weddings and festivals has been in existence for a long time. Sherwanis are known for their royal vibe and long history. Initially, only rulers and kings wore sherwanis but nowadays this outfit has become a must-have for grooms. Most grooms prefer to wear sherwanis for their wedding because they look different and exclusive as compared to other Indian outfits. Moreover, a sherwani also gives out a traditional feel to the overall look. Sherwanis for men are easily available these days. You no longer need to go from outlet to outlet in the search of a perfect sherwani; these ethnic outfits are also available online. Initially, sherwanis were too decorated with endless motifs and embellishments but nowadays wearing simple sherwanis is very much in vogue. Men have a very few options when it comes to traditional wear like kurta pajamas, dhoti kurta, Nehru jacket, etc. Many styles have been in and out of fashion but sherwanis have always been a trend no matter what! Depending on the nature of the occasion you can select the design and colour of the sherwani. Apart from the typical ethnic styles, many indo-western patterns are also available in sherwanis nowadays. Men’s sherwanis are available in all colours and tones. In order to select the right sherwani for an important event, many things need consideration. Here are the points to focus on when it comes to choosing an ethnic sherwani.

  • Fabric of the Sherwani

Sherwanis are usually made up of rich materials because the outfit needs to look royal and exclusive. Unlike kurtas, sherwanis are more formal in their vibe because they are worn for events like receptions, wedding ceremonies, engagement ceremonies, etc. The fabric influences the look of the outfit because the embroidery and the work depend on the fabric. Additionally, it should be noted that colours also behave differently based on the fabric. Make sure you check your comfort level when it comes to the material selection.

  • Colour of the Sherwani

The colour is the first thing a person notices when he/she sees the outfit. Select the colour based on the nature of the event. Some colours may look good for day time events whereas some may work well for evening occasions. Colours should also suit the texture of the fabric. See to it that you consider your personal style as well when you go for a particular shade. These days people also go for contrast colours in a sherwani!

  • Personal Style

Well, not everyone is comfortable with all patterns and styles. Before experimenting with a unique sherwani pattern check whether it is in sync with your personal style. Sherwanis these days come with a jacket or an asymmetrical pattern. In order to carry new patterns with ease, you need to be confident about your own posture and physique. Almost every Indian outfit requires styling and sherwanis need to be worn with élan!

Check out some of the trendy colour combinations in men’s sherwani.  These days apart from embellishments, sherwanis also come with quirky prints. Here are some tips for choosing the right colour for an Indian sherwani.

  • Pastel Colours

Pastel colours were earlier worn only by females but lately, these shades are also worn by grooms. Pastel coloured sherwanis work well for all occasions be it a sangeet ceremony, wedding ceremony, reception, etc. The trending pastel colours for a men’s sherwani are peach, mint green, baby blue and mauve. Pastel colours can also be worn for evening occasions. Team up your pastel coloured sherwani with a neutral toned churidar and you are bound to create a style statement for sure!

  • Combination of Beige and Gold

Sherwanis with pastel colours give out a contemporary look. However, if you want to go for a traditional look then you can opt for the combination of beige and gold too. Generally, in this combination people opt for a beige sherwani and team it up with a golden churidar. This combo is ideal for weddings and sangeet ceremonies.

  • Ivory Sherwani with a Wine Churidar

The colour combination of ivory and wine is a classic one. If you want to ditch the regular tones of red, yellow and blue then it is recommended to go for the stated shades. Opt for an ivory coloured sherwani and pair it up with a wine toned churidar or vice versa. These colours balance each other amazingly well because one is on the darker side whereas the other one is quite neutral.

  • Golden Yellow and Cream

If you are looking out for a sherwani specifically meant for day events then you can go for golden yellow and cream. The combination of golden yellow and cream is always ideal because it does not require much thinking. The colour itself is vibrant enough to enhance the overall look. The cream coloured churidar can also be paired with other sherwanis.

Well, once you are sorted with your ethnic men’s sherwani you will need to add some elements to the overall look. Check out what all can you add to spice up your sherwani look.

  • Footwear

Wearing the right footwear with a sherwani is very important because that completes the overall look. You can either go for traditional footwear styles or modern ones. Some commonly chosen footwear patterns are brogues, Kolhapuris, mojris, etc.

  • Pocket Squares

Several sherwanis also have a space for a pocket square. If your sherwani is simple to the core without any prints or embellishments then you can add a pocket square to the outfit. Pocket square need not be of the same colour, in fact, it is better to go for a contrast coloured pocket square.
