New Delhi: From choosing the right sherwani to pampering themselves in the salon, the new age grooms have a lot to keep in mind when it comes to choosing the perfect look for their special day.
Here are some tips that men should keep in mind when deciding their wedding look.
Balance between trends and classics: Yes, trends are cool to follow, but try to stick to classic and timeless styles. When it comes picking wedding outfit, men end up choosing the trending styles over classics and that, according to the fashion experts, is the biggest mistake. Ravi Gupta of Gargee Designers said, "Wedding look should be royal and impeccable. And to fit the bill, classics are the safest option."
Accessorise just right: In an attempt to look like a prince charming on their special day, grooms sometimes tend to go overboard when it comes to accessorising. Accessories like turban, necklace, rings, and brooches are there to enhance the look and not to spoil it. The art of balancing plays a very important role here. Shyam Gupta of Gargee Designers opines that the age of bling is over and the trend of quirky and subtle pieces is very much appreciated. The best part of non-blingy stuff is that you can use them in future to create a fusion too.
Manu Gupta of Samgrahah explains why downplaying bling is the way to go. "You can perk up your sherwani with accessories, but understand there's really no remedy for an over adorned sherwani," he said.
Going too simple is a no-no: Let simplicity take a back seat and don't let anybody steal your thunder on your wedding day. Choose a sherwani/suit that has a smooth and extravagant visual interest. Dress like a prince for your dream girl. Don't hold back, just balance your look. Choose a look that is a perfect combination of sophisticated and royal. Not too much and not too dull.
Wrong aesthetics: Red and maroon are no more the only wedding colours. Pick the colours that interest you and combine them wisely. It's your wedding day, don't restrict yourself. These days, a lot of options are available in both, the softer and the brighter side of the colour pallet. Also, try to make sure that the colour suits your skin tone.
Socks insight: In case you are wearing formal shoes with tuxedo or three-piece suit, make sure that the socks are in sync with the tone of the suit. Else, while flipping through the album in future you will get distracted by those white bright socks in the photos.
Beauty regime: While many men find grooming a bit off track, when it comes to your wedding, a bit of pampering is not at all harmful. All you need to do is to visit a salon, fix an appointment and get going.
Churidaar on point: Make sure that the fit of your churidaar is right on point so that the overall look turns out to be sharp in the frame.
Choosing the right style for your wedding can be stressful and that's where these tips will come handy.
