Trends for men to follow this festive season

New Delhi: With the arrival of celebrations, wedding, and festivals, the uber-cool men have a plethora of fusion wear to experiment with. This year, it’s time to ditch the usual attires and try something more quirky and stylish. From fusion churidars to sophisticated bandgalas, the options are endless!

Here are some ideas for you to up your style game this season:

Fusion File
For ceremonial gatherings, you can team the classic churidar with long side-slit kurta and complete the look with a statement waistcoat. Make sure that the base is solid in shade and the waistcoat is high on style and pattern. Patterned waistcoats are the perfect place to be between casual and heavy ethnic wear.

Pastel Power
When all colors fail, turn to pastels. Nothing beats the brilliance and simplicity of a pastel-colored kurta when paired with a simple pyjama or a churidar. Pastel-hued Indo-western coats and jackets look both contemporary and elegant and are trending incredibly with all ages to flaunt as celebration wear, says designer Ravi Gupta from Gargee Designer’s.

The poise of Indo-Western
A blend of Indo-western embraced for men is always going to be an elegant and distinguished pick which will never go out of style. With a confidence that is unmatched and unparalleled, the fusion gives an altered look to traditional clothing, advocates Gargee Designer’s Shyam Gupta.

They can be worn to simple dinners or to elaborate occasions. They are easy to carry, comfortable and at the same time when worn smartly can be repeated.

Bandgala Brigade
As the name suggests the style has a closed collar. The sophistication of a bandgala suit is enhanced with fine handcrafted or machine embroidery. The closed collar style is evergreen and is a symbol of men with sophistication. Pair it classy shoes and you have the perfect attire for the day and even evening celebrations.

Accessory Alert!
Start looking around and you have online brands and designers selling some amazing brooches, pins, and attachments that can be played around with in the festive and wedding season. Manu Gupta of Samgrahah says that the miniature brooches and badges made with antique watch parts are very much in trend and metrosexual men prefer such subtle details in their occasional wear. If you are good at experimentation, you can also don quirky rings.
