Men, let’s go traditional!

Men, let’s go traditional!

This wedding season, don’t be overwhelmed by the number of events (or the number of apparel choices the market has to offer). The easiest thing to do is step into a store and pick up something that “will do”. Or to make do with your formal shirts. But a little thought can go a long way. Invest in pieces that work for more than one occasion and across different seasons. Invest in handwoven kurtas and invest in the artisan community. Here's how you can style your look for these occasions.

Weddings

If there's one time when you find yourself looking for your ethnic wear, it's during the great Indian wedding season. Go for a handwoven short Jubba paired with a tight-fitted churidar and Kolhapuri sandals.

Receptions

A reception allows you to match traditional with your everyday style. Go for a versatile, yet elegant light coloured kurta, layer it with a silk waistcoat or Nehru jacket, and pair it with matching chinos and driver shoes.

Parties

For an office party with a smart-casual dress code, balance desi with western. Match a short khadi kurta with denims for a laidback fusion look.

 

Festivals

Elegant khadi kurtas work for parties and also double up for an outfit during festive seasons like Sankranti. Turn up the traditional quotient at these occasions by pairing it with dhotis.

 

Rituals

There's no reason why paired with a dhoti and sandals.

Being in existence for more than 5,000 years, a saree was a humble drape used by women in India. Still ever present  on ramps at leading fashion shows, on streets of rural and urban India, on college students and their conservative grandmothers, the saree is as entrenched in our culture as it ever was.
