Lights and fashion… a “crunchy” combination! We have all been in a situation where we wish ethnic and western clothing was more adaptive and comfortable and luckily we can now combine the best of both worlds thanks to Indo-Western fashion trends. From bomber jackets to kurta shirts and ethnic prints, mixing and matching Western and Indian styles is no easy task, but it’s not rocket science either.
In an interview with HT Lifestyle, Raghav Pawar and Amar Pawar, co-founders of Powerlook, revealed some of the best Indo-Western styles for men to sort through your fashion woes and stay in style ahead of Diwali 2022:
1. Mandala prints
Modern, versatile, elegant and breathable. Did we miss something? A fresh start for your independent wardrobe, this Mandala Print Half Sleeve Shirt strikes the sweet spot between statement and subtlety. A perfect balance of Western wear that reflects Indian tradition. Ditch the heavy styles and pair Mandala prints with tailored accessories and pants.
2. Effortless Beige Patchwork Print
So you love your basics. U.S. too ! It leaves plenty of room to play with layers and is a sure win for both casual and formal events. Add to your sartorial elegance with a half-sleeved shirt printed with small flowers.
3. Mix it up with prints
Nothing says indie like a striking ethnic-inspired print for a simple yet contemporary touch. Take it a notch higher and amp it up with indigo pants or even better, opt for a tonal match for rooftop gatherings!
4. Kurta shirts are hot
Shirts that look like kurtas are very much in trend and will keep your fashion quotient warm this season. Nevertheless, kurta shirts are quirky yet beautiful. Be bold and give it a try for sure.
5. Always in, never out – jackets!
Either way, jackets will never go out of style. Add a splash of color to any outfit this season with a bomber jacket featuring a stand-up collar with zip closure in a regular fit. Pair this bomber jacket with a plain off shoulder kurta and denim jeans for a complete Diwali look!
6. Flowers are fun
Adding bright flowers to your Diwali party not only makes it less boring but also gives you a fresher and rosier touch. Opt for half-sleeved floral print shirts, light but heavenly. Shades like off-white, pastel pink or green will make you look gorgeous while keeping you rooted in tradition.
7. Oversized Plaid Flannel Shirt
An oversized plaid flannel shirt in bright colors will give a soothing effect during the holiday season.
Indo-Western men’s fashion emphasizes the harmonious blend of Indian and Western components. It can be tricky, but as long as you use the suggestions above and your own judgment, your outfit will look great!
