When Sherwani Is Not Your Type!

By Richa

When you don’t see yourself clad in a sherwani at a wedding function, panic strikes your mind. The thought of ‘what to wear then’ freaks you out. Don’t worry at all and read on to know what you can wear at your wedding functions!

Our dear men look no less than princes if the girls are princesses adorning ethnic wear. While the girls usually go for bridal lehengas or shararas, the men ultimately choose a sherwani to compliment the pretty ladies. What about those men who think sherwani is not their cup of coffee and they don’t shy away from experimenting with their attires? We have experts in house who have some peppy suggestions for those who want to choose unconventional attire. Let’s see what they say!

What can a groom wear?

Although, sherwanis are in style since long and will reign as a popular choice for many years and fashion seasons to come; still there has been a shift in the demand of sherwanis over the past couple of years. “Today men are willing to experiment in looks due to more fashion awareness and social media exposure. He is looking for something that is classy, elegant and an extension of himself,” commented Designer Lalit Dalmia. Indeed, men have grown from ignorant to conscious in terms of their looks over the period of time.  “Today man isn’t content to merely getting dressed in basic sherwani for a wedding, he embraces fashion as a form of self-expression and even as an extension of self. He understands the importance of quality in clothing and appreciates the small details—clever stitching, perfectly coordinated colors, or that one standout accessory that elevates an outfit to an art form,” adds Mr. Dalmia.


According to Mr. Gaurav Aggarwal, Owner of Uni.Vastr, Delhi, men can opt for the following options to adopt a non-sherwani yet ethnic look for a wedding function-


For the men who want to change the aura of their attire completely, suits are a very good option. In fact, to flaunt the offbeat cosmopolitan in you, accessorizing the suit with printed pocket squares, ties or waist coats is a wonderful option; those who like to keep it subtle can go for a three piece suit or a tuxedo. It is your confidence that should ooze out of a trendy suit without much to worry.

Formal Jackets

Winter is coming! With that comes the season of velvets, suede, corduroy, etc. Men who love to adorn their attitude in the form of clothes. A sauve dinner jacket in deep colours can enhance your look instantly. Adorned with a pair of polished formal shoes will complete the mondain look.



Classic Bandhgalas are an anytime advisable for the lean hunks. A perfectly stitched in cashmere, wool, khadi, matka silk, linen, Irish linen, cotton chino and silk Italian suiting fabric is an indispensable option for one of the wedding functions. Even the grooms can carry a bandhgala with a jodhpuri or trousers at their wedding. Choose your right colour and you are good to go.


A self achkan with pearl strings attaching the pocket and the button paired with a dhoti looks really elegant. It gives you enough traditional look while keeping it subtle as per contemporary sashion norms. The mojris and kalgi enhance this look further. You can opt for colours of your choice. In fact, the self, embroidered velvet, suede, etc fabrics will make terrific options for this winter season.

Close to a Sherwani Look

Kurta pyjama, Anarkali Sherwani or attire with attached muffler are some options you can opt for lighter functions like mehendi or sangeet. Heavy kurta pyjamas in raw silk along with some embroidery are apt for those who want an Indian look without much-a-do. The influence of Mughal era can be witnessed in the anarkali sherwani which gives you an immense royal look. The muffler attached kurta or bandhgala can be adorned to a wedding function which doesn’t require too much formal get up.

Variations in Sherwani

Apart from the typical sherwani with a pyjami, pairing a short length sherwani with dhoti or short sherwani with a long kurta inside is a brilliant option that you can experiment with.

What about the close relatives?

“The relatives can be categorized in two generations and that is the guideline that is mostly used to dress the relatives. As the elders prefer more subtle and simple outfits which are detail oriented, such as Jodhpuri’s with breeches or short jackets with style line and asymmetric cuts,” opines Mr. Dalmia. It is the second generation, that is, of cousins and siblings who prefer to go with the latest trends as this is the most fashion conscious generation in the family. “As for the cousins and siblings they prefer what’s in trend and want to wear with innovative cuts and colour. They want more playful colours and styles that stand out,” adds to this thought, Mr. Dalmia. The youth today wants everything stylish but at the same time wants to stick to its roots. “For them, indo-western is the right choice of clothing for the family functions where they can experiment a lot with new combinations like waist length bandhgalas paired with jopdhpuris, waist coats with jodhpuris and other funky combinations,” says Mr. Gaurav Aggarwal.

Winter Dressing

Wearing woolens or warmers beneath the trossoue is easier for men that it is for women, thus, they can put on layers of clothing to keep warm. Although, fitting and bulk should be the two points they must keep in mind before choosing the layers. Moreover, winter fabrics like velvets, corduroy, wool and raw silk are in themselves warm fabrics which add to the comfort in the winters. On this Mr. Dalmia too chimes in an equivalent thought, “This year fabrics like heavy raw silk, heavy brocades, velvets and wool blend fabrics came into play. As they are graceful and rich fabrics that shine in an event which paired with fabrics like satin and corduroy using embellishment techniques such as piping, patchwork or paneling and outlining and highlighting them with different stitching techniques like running stitch and back tack stitch.” Apart from the fabrics, heavy embroidery, patchwork, stitching, piping and other heavy elements also make the attires warmer.

Grooms in Western Outfits

A groom who wants to experiment by going in contrast with the bride and opting for a western outfit can consider the following suggestions given by Mr. Lalit Dalmia so that the couple doesn’t look odd:

  • A Groom can complement their bride’s lenghas by wearing the same colours as the bride in indo-western wear.
  • If a groom is going for suits as wedding outfit then he can compliment bride’s attire by picking few elements from bride’s lengha and pair it with his outfit in the form of brooches, tie, pocket embellishments, or carrying a shawl stole inspired by the bride’s dupatta with short jhodhpuri/bandgala.

All it takes is one common element to make the couple outfits in harmony and special.

In the end, it is your charisma that should carry your attire and not your attire that should become the reason for your charisma. After all, your style this season must give your confidence a boost and become a trend for others to follow. So, dear men, don’t shy away from choosing attire that speaks of your attitude. Happy Dressing!
