The last few weeks of the year brings wedding bells and a jam-packed calendar of festivities. On one hand, women are thrilled with such events. On the other hand, men belong to that group who do not get over-excited on receiving invites for weddings. However, it is an event they cannot avoid. What comes along with this is the need to have the perfect outfit in place.
Weddings are a great way to unleash your inner “desi boy”. When it comes to Indian wedding outfits, the attire for men is pretty straightforward. You can wear a smart silk or cotton kurta, Sherwani or Pathani suit. These are the basics. However, what often leaves men confused is the footwear. There is a whole range of ethnic footwear for men that can go with traditional Indian outfits.
If you have a series of wedding festivities to attend and do not know how to style yourself, let us help you. First, choose the shoes you are wearing so that you can pair the rest of your outfit accordingly.
- Ethnic Mojaris
These are the most common and versatile ethnic shoes for men. If you are looking for a smart and sophisticated outfit, then wear a pair of tan brown mojaris with cream coloured silk pyjama and kurta set. To add a little something to your outfit, you can rock a dark red or brown Nehru jacket over top. The mojaris are closed shoes with a slight flick on the toes. If you really want to stand out, you can also wear a pair of embroidered mojaris.
- Ethnic Sandals
If the wedding party is from your family, you need to look your stylish best for this event. For all your sherwanis and baggy pyjamas, ethnic sandals are the perfect fit. They are stylish and comfortable with a sophisticated and clean design. For all your heavily embroidered traditional outfits, ethnic sandals are the perfect companion. There are various ethic men shoes online from where you can pick your favourite colour to go with your outfit!
- Ethnic Kolhapuris
If you want to pull off a more casual look at the wedding, you can always opt for comfort shoes. Ethnic sandals should be your go-to option for a traditional outfit. If the wedding party is not directly related to you, there is no need for you to be over the top. Thus, you can simply pair light brown kolhapuris with a cotton embroidered kurta and pyjama. This is an effortless outfit, yet very appropriate for the event.
- Ethnic Slipons
If you are in a rush to finalise your outfit and cannot figure out what to wear, we are here to help you. Throw on a Salwar-Kurta set in a neutral colour such as white. Over that you can stand out by wearing a printed jacket with a Chinese collar. This will give a pop of colour to your neutral outfit. Finally, you can finish the look with a great pair of ethnic slip-ons. They usually come with closed toes, thus giving your outfit a more put-together look.
