1.The Ideal Kurta Length
It can be at times difficult for someone to identify the ideal length of the kurta that he can wear. But, it is important to know that the choice of length of the kurta is subjective.
A super short kurta would be perfect with jeans. The most commonly worn length of kurta is knee length that can be paired with regular pajama or jeans. One can also find longer lengths of kurta that would be ideally perfect for the men with height above 5’8”.
2.Choice of Footwear
The choice of footwear has been puzzling men since ages. While the juttis and kolhapuri chappals are the choice of footwear for ethnic clothes, the formal shoes, the boat shoes and espadrilles are the choice for the formal wear. The sandals are the mid-way footwear that can be paired with the ethnic, fusion as well as western wear. Sandals can be worn with either of these and also to your office. These are the best choice of footwear with the waistcoat for men if one is not comfortable with mojari.
3.The fine line between Moderate and Ostentatious Dressing
There is a fine line between moderate and ostentatious dressing. So, when dressing for any event or party, there are few things to be kept in mind. For example, when dressing for an outdoor event that is to be held in the morning, consider picking darker shades like maroon, blue with minimal design and embroidery.
Even shades like lemon yellow, pastel or light yellow would not backfire, but golden colored kurta or any neon colored shirts or kurtas are better if avoided. The dark or light colored kurta with heavy embroidery are more suitable for the events in the evening. Also, one should consider dressing in contrast colors that complement each other and balance the entire look.
4.Is Mix and match a good option?
Mixing and matching have always been a great option but only if you know what goes with which. For example, a short kurta with a pair of jeans would look amazing, but at the same time, if you wear it with trousers, it may not create the same look. So, take a good look at the mirror before you finalize your choices.
5.What are the Layering options?
Layering is a good option specifically when you are wearing ethnic attire. The most common choice of layering is a Nehru jacket or a bandh gala jacket. Also, one should know that it is better to choose contrasting colors to add a gradient instead of going for matching. A golden coloured koti is also a nice option when it comes to choosing layering option. The golden embroidered koti goes best with minimally embroidered kurta of darker hues like blue, black or maroon.
