3 Sherwani Styling Ideas Are Apt For This Festive Season

3 Sherwani Styling Ideas Are Apt For This Festive Season

   Prasant Mandal

When it comes to Indian wear, men have always had an array of options. Not only do they get to wear sharp suits but can also embrace ethnic outfits, thus enjoying the best of both worlds. Despite so many sartorial choices, many men are still afraid to experiment and try out-of-the-box styles. For those who have been donning suits for every occasion be it a formal event, wedding party to a festive occasion and now bored of it, we’ve styled the classic sherwani in more ways than one. We’re leaving the heavily-embroidered sherwanis for grooms. Instead, we’ve used a velvet and classier version in emerald green from Pink Peacock Couture. Check out these dapper styles and look your best this festive season.


Looking to go highly traditional but don’t want to look gaudy? A well-tailored sherwani paired with white dhoti pants will help you achieve the perfect traditional attire. Add a printed pocket square to the sherwani and you’re set to go.

Throw a stylish sherwani over a pair of black jeans and a black tee as a coat to add some glam to a rather boring look. This is an outfit that is neither too much nor too less and perfectly strikes a balance. Sport a pair of boots if you’re not working a formal dress code. Add a pair of wayfarers and opt for the dishevelled hair look for a laid-back appeal.

If you’re one to opt for straighter silhouettes and aren’t a big fan of baggy dhotis, then this one’s for you. Pair your regal sherwani with jodhpuris. We’ve styled the rich emerald sherwani with a pair of blush-coloured jodhpuri pants and completed the look with mojris.
