The Republic Day weekend is a well awaited one and one way to celebrate it would be to experiment with your fashion choices. Most men have a range of clothes in their wardrobe that are not put to their best use because of lack of opportunity and Indian wear is one such collection that faces the brunt of it all!
But this weekend is just the right time to take part in the festivity along with the rest of the country and accentuate your looks by going the extra mile. Here are a few ways you can really change your regular look to suit the occasion and redefine your fashion on this national holiday!
A traditional dhoti-kurta can be effortlessly elegant for any event that you need to attend on the Republic Day. A dhoti-kurta can be simple as well as dressy and thus can vary as per the occasion. You can experiment with colours and fabrics, this long weekend. Go ethnic and truly savour the festivities!
Accesorise the right way
Always the most underestimated, accessories play a huge role in changing your style game and amping up any outfit you put together. A tri colour brooch, cuff link, label pin or simply a pocket square is enough. Choose a minimal accessory that is not very over the top and gaudy. Keep it modest and simple.
Every man needs to own a mandarin or a Nehru collar shirt for its relaxed yet festive vibe. Cottons and linen are the preferred choice in material when it comes to wearing a Nehru collar. You can even opt for a sophisticated dress shirt if you have to attend an event for the Republic day or a half placket t-shirt for a more casual look.
Everyone has traditional Indian clothes in their wardrobe and choosing an ethnic piece during the day or for an event in the night time can be the perfect way to style yourself on this Republic Day. From silk or brocade kurtas, patterned waist coat worn on top of distressed jeans or jodhpuri pants, there is a wide variety to pick from when it comes to desi clothing. You can even consider a classic rich sherwani if you have to be extremely well-dressed for an occasion. The achkan is a sherwani that is worn with dhotis or salwar and has a button placket in the front, which gives it the feel of jacket.
Bring out the mojaris
The right pair of mojaris or even kolhapuris can make your traditional outfit a tad more ethnic and authentic. Invest in a good pair that is high on comfort and quality. Match the colour with your pocket square or brooch’s colour and you are good to go!
