The quintessential item for any groom is a sherwani. Whether it’s solid colours of ivory and beige, or brighter hues in rani-pink or better still—printed and embroidered, this item of clothing is a must for every groom. And what better way to flaunt your sherwani than coordinate it with the bride’s designer-walla lehenga.
A Jodhpuri bandhgala is a combination of a jacket with a mandarin collar, worn with trousers. The look was first created for the Maharaja of Jodhpur—which is why when worn it exudes a royal look. It’s a shorter version of a sherwani, and definitely more modern. The bandhgala ends near the hips, which is what attributes to its contemporary look and feel.
The once-shunned dhoti pant is making a major comeback in both men’s and women’s haute-couture. The result— spectacular silhouettes that exhibit equal measures of elegance and pure fun. A bridal look for the groom which incorporates the urban dhoti speaks of unprecedented style and a fashion-forward front.
Traditional as it maybe, wedding season is the only time we get to see our men looking regal, so why not go all the way? Add a printed safa to a man’s ensemble and there is little left to desire for. Besides adding detail, a printed safa can break the monotony of the look. Definitely a #BBRecommends!
Contemporary leather Jodhpuri juttis add to the ethnicity of the look and make a huge difference. Simple, non-embellished leather moccasins look dapper with slim-cut bandhgalas whereas the more embellished mojaris are better suited for a heavier sherwani. What you have to keep in mind is coordinating and contrasting the right footwear with the right outfit—consciously and fashionably.
