Menswear in India upgrades from simple to stylish

No longer is the globe a runway for women only. Fashion sense has graced men, and they’re more than wise and keen to catch up with the latest trends. With brands, celebrities and fashion shows serving as an around-the-clock reminder, men’s styles, which had often been believed to be quite straightforward took a stylish turn. If this isn’t an eye-opening statement for a stylish wardrobe upgrade, what is? So, let’s take you through some fashion statements, which are definitely Aashni + Co-approved.  

At the forefront of being more playful, menswear has taken a more colourful approach, which is not just limited to casual styles but also formal wear. Stepping out of the conventional route, Rohit Bal reinvigorated tuxedos with resham thread embroidery and shibori prints, undoubtedly adding more glam to the chique factor that was already there. But as they say, the more the better! Guys, this is your sign to take a cue and elevate your style with extra suaveness.

Talking about embroidered work, artsy patterns in appealing hues are the new in! Be it tie and dye or subtle embroidered details, that’s the epitome of a debonair look and Devnaagri is acing it perfectly.

Today’s new age demands more flair and drama, even for ethnic attire. With a flattering and asymmetrical twist to the conventional silhouettes, Dhruv Vaish gives a contemporary touch to age-old traditional structures of kurtas. An added drape here or a flared peek there creates a whole new look that exudes finesse.

If you’re looking for a way to serve looks on a platter, layering is the way to go. From casual to traditional, introducing mix-and-match spruces up your wardrobe effortlessly. Jatin Malik spices up his designs with an overshirt or jacket both for daily and festive attire. Punit Arora too makes it to the list with his stunning bandis and jackets over the simple kurtas, and we have to say it’s dapper to the T.

Remember Shahrukh Khan’s admirable mirror-embellished kurta from “Kal Ho Na Ho”? Well, you can also jazz yourself up with the ‘Mahi Ve’ style since mirror work is back with a bang! And that’s not all; instead of earthy tones, just go for bold, bright colours. With viva magenta as the spokesperson of the new year, glaring hues are the current rage. Abhinav Mishra infused glitz into the existing patterns of ethnic fits with his new designs. So, if you’re looking for something spectacular, you know where to go.
