The festive season is upon us, and so are the conundrums as to what to wear for the number of parties that have filled up your calendar.
While your traditional kurtas, stacked at the back of your wardrobe will certainly come to your rescue, why not ditch the usual this time around, and seek inspiration from the experts? We all know that no one dresses better than the Bollywood denizens do. So get inspired by these fashion savvy dudes to amp up your style quotient and make heads turn in whichever social gathering you step in.
Ethnic With A Twist
If you belong to those breed of men who don’t shy away from experimenting, then the likes of Ranveer Singh, Arjun Kapoor, Ranbir Kapoor and Akshay Kumar should definitely be your style gurus.
Lately, Akshay Kumar made an impeccable style statement with his draped kurtas and dhoti look in ‘Singh Is Bliing’. The draped tunic in muted colors, asymmetric jackets paired with vibrant dhotis is ideal to set the festive mood with a quirky twist.
The asymmetrical trends by designer Antar Agni are trending and even Arjun Kapoor has been seen in this trending attire. And if dhotis are not your thing, you can pair them with either churidars or salwars. While churidars will play it up, salwars will add a casual touch and don’t hesitate to play with the look by adding prints.
One can even opt for a funkier look like Akshay and pair Elvis style jackets with Punjabi lungis.
And when we talk unusual, one can’t forget to seek inspiration by the god of quirky style— Ranveer Singh. Learn from Ranveer how to add touches of some eccentric style to the traditional bandhgala. Ranveer was spotted wearing a Rohit Bal floral embroidered bandhgala, to which he added a twist with a hat and geeky glasses. Bandhgala if paired with well-fitted trousers can rock any occasions and parties.
One can even interestingly pair the bandhgala with oversized pyjamas like Ranbir Kapoor, to be the talking point at all the soirees.
Another Ranveer Singh look that will help you rock the party scene is the blue cowl kurta and churidaar with a blue turban and mojris, which the actor sported at a promotional event for his forthcoming film ‘Bajirao Mastani’.
Royal And Traditional
This festive season you can take tips from the prince of Bollywood – Salman Khan, as he blends the classic cuts with a hint of old-world charm and contemporary style in his film ‘Prem Ratan Dhan Payo.’
The film is loaded with inspiration to up your festive style quotient a few notches. Pick from his many royal Rajasthani looks, right from the traditional bandhgalas to dhoti-kurtas. And what’s more, Bhaijaan has brought khadi back in fashion too.
The actor is wearing several khadi outfits in the film and was recently seen walking the ramp in Khadi pajama kurta. Undoubtedly, Khadi is trending on the fashion circuit and with the added modern twist has to be your ideal choice.
So lay your hands on this traditional heritage, and revel in your Indianess.
None other than the Badshaah of Bollywood shows us that a classic pathani suit can never go wrong. If you don’t believe me, have a look at the ‘Raees’ poster. Shah Rukh Khan is looking hotter like never before in a simple black pathani.
You can opt for an easy style such as those of pathani suits for a casual evening party or up the style meter by adding a Nehru jacket or a waistcoat for a more formal look.
So ditch the simple old kurtas and get ready to shine like the stars this festive season!
