Don't miss: HOT wedding fashion for men

New Delhi, Jan 18: In the wedding season, it's not just women who want to look their best, but men too like to look dapper. Men can ditch the jutti as footwear and instead opt for the European-style like brogues, suggest experts.

Sunil Mehra, Founder and Designer at Sunil Mehra and Ambud Sharma, Founder at Ligo Group/ Escaro Royale, have shared style tips:

* Embroidery and prints: The 2017/18 wedding season isn't that much about the fabrics as much as bold textures. Textures are making exceptional style statements. Heavy embroidery is in and so are loud prints. The floral designs are back this season. The pink floral sherwanis to heavy gold floral bandhgalas are the taste of this season.

* Sherwanis: A short kurta with a Patiala salwar or a dhoti that is loose at the thigh and tapers at the calves, is ideal attire for wedding functions. When going with classic churidar, mocassins and brogues work wonders to the outfit.

* Footwear: The juttis are out; fashion leather European footwear is in Move over the traditional black jutti, and make way for the European style statement. It wouldn't be wrong to say that this is where the "fusion" starts. 

Men are preferring the burnish brogues, the croc-leather textures and the hybrid combo footwear to add that class and style to the generally traditional outfit.

* Bandhgala Jacket: An embroidered bandhgala jacket looks exquisite and offers a number of styles. A bandhgala jacket opens the door to experiments. Team it up with a classic black kurta and accessorise it with jewels, cuff-pins or a stone studded brooch.

* Accesorise it: Today, there are number of accessories options that are available for men. Where a turban will immediately bring the festive vibes to your dull outfit, stylish aviators at a day function will look cool. Another option could be a shimmery, colourful or a patterned stole for a more suave look.

Men are also adding glitter on traditional clothing using lapel pins, chiffon and satin pocket squares and audaciously flaunting floral pins. 

Belt buckles have gone gold and so have the embroidery of the wallets. The angarakha and badhgalas are being enlightened with the glitter from men's jewellery - be it subtle chains or heavy pearls.

* Play with shades: Gone are the days when only golden was considered as a customary colour code for weddings. A pop of red, green or a vibrant blue is what you need to incorporate in your styling. The colours are indeed festive and will take away the gloomy blues from your mood. 

But one should always take care of not exploding colours in the outfit. Balancing is very important when playing with shades.

Don't shy away from colours like blue, purple and pink though the gold, black and white are still the ultimate kings. 

The bandhgalas, angarakhas and sherwanis are being worn with beautiful stoles spreading from shoulder to the end of the right arm in the traditional way. These stoles are heavily embroidered and generally velvet or high-weave cotton blended in wood.

* Mix it up: The 2017/18 season has seen lots of fusion - bandhagalas with slim-cut trousers with European footwear and royal accessories. There is no set pattern to what the imagination can bring to the table this season - work your colour with the bold patterns - mix it up with traditional and international tastes.
