Hope you’re enjoying our wedding season special ‘Truly Bridal’ by Kalyan Jewellers. A wedding is as special for the groom as it is for the bride. So we thought we’ll give some attention to the guys who have found their partners. As part of the ‘Truly Bridal’ video series, Men’s stylist, Kalyani Desai shares a handful tips for the groom to look dashing on his wedding day.
Watch the video here.
Today I’m going to tell you about some of the pieces every groom must own with the closet.
1. Kurta-Pyjama: Be it a puja or the haldi ceremony, I haven’t seen a guy who DOESN’T look chic in a Kurta. If you relate to classics, then opt for off whites, creams and beige (light beige) too. If you’re all about colour, you can try maroon/burgundy, royal blue and black. You can either go traditional with a kurta that goes long and pair it with a chudidaar or opt for a trendier look and opt for a shorter length and pair it with straight pyjamas.
When to wear: Pujas/Haldi ceremony
Best paired with: Mojaris/Chapals
2. Suit: Well if you want to look “LEGEN-wait-for-it-DARY” like Barney Stinson from How I Met Your Mother, it’s best to opt for a three piece suit (blazer, waistcoat and trousers). You can either opt for a two button, single-breasted jacket with flap pockets or a six button, double-breasted suit jacket with jetted pockets. While charcoal and black are classic colours, blue, navy blue and white are on-trend.
When to wear: Parties/Reception
Best paired with: Oxford shoes or Brogues
3. Nehru Jacket: A classic from the wardrobe collection, Nehru jacket are a must-have piece this time of the season. Try looking at patterned weaves and full buttons to keep it minimal and classy. Opt for side slits for comfort. Wear colours like black, white, grey and blue.
When to wear: Sangeet/ Engagement
Best paired with: Juttis
4. Sherwani: Go classic and traditional with a beautifully tailored Sherwani. Start with deciding on a shade that suits your skintone and taste. When it comes to embroidery, ask for as many options like Zardosi, Chikankari, Gara, Sequins and more. Solid hued sherwanis are a personal favourite so make sure you invest in a good fabric. Make sure you try on your ensemble a couple of times so that you’re not uncomfortable on the big day.
When to wear: Wedding Day
Best Paired with: Juttis
