WEDDING ALERT: So what’re you wearing, a Sherwani or Tuxedo?

A lot of times, our fellow members pop the same question to us like, “My brother’s getting married, what should I wear?

And then come the doubts like, “I want to wear something formal but not western”; “I want to leave the blazer to Cocktail party”; “Don’t want to wear a coat- it’s too common!”; “Shaadi is all about ethnic wear…I want to try something different”; “Should I try a Kurta pyjama or a sherwani but not very groom-like!”.

We get many questions and a spoon full of doubts that range even higher like, “Women can wear heels to look taller, but if we wear high sole shoes we only look weird. So, how to look taller at a wedding?”. And guys, yes, today we’re in a pensive mood 😉 and we are concerned only about 2 things today-

  1. Sherwani, and
  2. How to look Taller in a Sherwani 😉

Sherwani makes most men look good. True Story.

Since you’re a guest so you don’t want to be shini-er than the groom I guess 😉 So, a stylish Sherwani or a great Kurta-pyjama or a great Kurta-Dhoti combination will not only make you look Different but also Chic.

(Yeah, so we’re a li’l objective today) And, here are some reasons to buy a Sherwani right away-

  1. It gives you natural length as the Kurta generally touches below your knees and gives you optically-illusive length
  2. Whatever design your Sherwani may be, the neck is generally a tapered placket, which makes your neck look slimmer and angular.
  3. You look warmer, friendlier and more approachable 😉 vis-à-vis a Suited man next to you!
  4. You break the convention of the Common by going traditional.
  5. It shows that you put some thought into your outfit and you’re smart not to be wearing a Blazer.
  6. The Juttis/ Mojaris for Men (worn together with a Sherwani) are a great relief to the eyes vis-à-vis the same old grey/black/brown shoes

Many a royal men wear Mojaris with a Sherwani

OK. Now lets get you a Cheat-Sheet to look Taller

1. Opt for Sherwani with a tapered placket instead of a bandh Gala

Sometimes a bad Bandh Gala leaves you Without a Neck 😉

2. Go for a readymade Dhoti,with a kurta so long that it stop at your knees. Churidaars look good too,just ensure that it doesn’t have too many rings at bottom.

A gorgeous Sherwani/Kurta likes a well fitted Churidaar

3. Opt for shinier/lighter color of the Churidaar than that of the Sherwani

4. Opt for smaller, wide-set prints on a Kurta than big block prints. Also choose lighter colors than darker ones like greys/browns etc.

This is something experimental but, Someone with height concerns, should try avoiding styles like these-

The dark color & Bad choice of Shoes stubs his height!

5. Lucknowi/Laknavi kurtas have a natural advantage as many a times, the chikankaari runs vertically, and hence the subtle length.

6. Focus on Kurtas that have embroidery stopping at the mid of your chest. It gives you more torso-area to keep the eyes fixed at the right areas of a Man 😉 we meant the ‘chest’!

7. Keep a Stole ALWAYS styled on one shoulder if you want to look taller. NEVER cross it on both as it cuts height

Men, a cross-styled Stole is NOT for you. Ever.

And last, Dhoti with a Sherwani is just so sexy that we cant deny but do NOT ever wear a Stole or a Dupatta alongLets keep something for women to protect their assets, shouldn’t we? 😉

Also, See how Mr Khan rolls it in Style with his many shades of Sherwanis.
