Trending styles for the modern groom this season include a regal royal look, metallic outfits, sober golds, all black outfits, waist cinchers, all white look, oriental themed outfits and the retro 50’s look.
For grooms who prefer a more traditional and regal look, rich outfits that are heavily embroidered in heavy fabrics like velvet and satin can make the groom look like a Rajashtani prince or Maratha royal. These outfits can be given a contemporary touch with floral waistcoats to make the groom look like a modern-day royal.
Metallics are also back in style with the famous achkans being embellished with metallic embroidery. Metallic outfits have been seen on the runways this year and open achkans with a kurta that matches it gives outfits the perfect amount of layering.
While women are always seen flaunting gold, men can also carry this gold trend off with more subtle shades of the gold. Rose gold sherwanis with nature prints as embellishments for example looks great on grooms and these sherwanis can be paired with a simple white churidar.
Waist clinchers have been in vogue for long now and these look extremely trendy on men. Wearing this outfit with sequins, kalamkari or kantha adds up to a stunning ensemble that could look as stylish as the bride!
Mixing oriental prints and motifs into traditional Indian outfits can give the groom an edgy and contemporary look! Incorporating these prints and motifs through silhouettes and matching an outfit like this with fitted pants and sleek hair is definitely a unique look for the modern day groom.
For a more refined look, grooms can opt for the staple white and black look with white Jodhpuri pants and a smart velvet black bandhgala that exudes the retro 50’s luxe look!
