India is known for its tradition and diversity. These garments carry our old traditions and connect us to our roots. Although the western influence has decreased the demand for the ethnic wear but still the versatility of Indian ethnic wear is pushing against all odds to be the number one choice for various occasions. When it comes to ethnic wear, we see a lot of options in women’s wear and think that there’s less options for men. But there are a variety of options one can choose from to get an exemplary look and following is the sample pool you’re looking for.
Kurta is the first thing that comes to mind when we talk about men’s ethnic wear. It’s the most comfortable wear anyone can ask for. Available in a variety of patterns, lengths and styles, Kurta goes well with almost everything – pyjamas, skinny trousers, jeans, dhotis and churidars as well. It is available in a wide array of different fabrics; owing to which it is an all-weather garment. When a silk kurta can be a wonderful pick for a wedding, on the other hand a cotton kurta is perfect for everyday wear. Silver bracelets and Kolhapuri chappals add some extra oomph to a kurta.
Sherwani, one of the most glorified ethnic wear in men’s clothing, is long coat-like attire with flairs at the bottom. It can be teamed up with fitted dhotis, trousers, Patiala salwars and even lungis. Some of the finest sherwanis available are Jodhpuri Sherwani, Pakistani Sherwani, Angrakha Sherwani and even Anarkali Sherwani. A Sherwani with a stole or scarf and a gold chain around the neck in addition to Juttis will provide a perfect wedding look.
Achkan is a traditional knee length, long sleeved jacket, which is quite similar to Sherwani. It’s mainly made up of lighter fabrics that make it more suitable for summer season. You can don your achkan with either a dhoti or churidar or even harem pants. A pearl necklace with a finger ring will be the perfect accessories for a compact look. Because of its ceremonial aura, Achkan can provide a splendid look for your social parties and gatherings, banquets and even fashion shows.
So, as you can see, Indian ethnic wear is still one of the most prominent clothing styles you can pick for any occasion. In addition to the above-mentioned categories, you can opt for other items like Pathani suit, Khan Dress and even Kashmiri pheran for any appropriate occasion. Since, the global appeal of Indian ethnic wear is increasing every second, we as natives should sport this ethnic look with utmost confidence and pride.
