Among the many things that are associated with an Indian wedding, rarely is there anything as consistent as a regal sherwani. Shiny, shimmering, and splendid, sherwanis are a big hit, especially at North Indian weddings where it is customary for the groom along with the male members of the involved parties to don a piece of beautiful craftsmanship. Come the wedding season, and everyone is in a rush to buy Indian sherwani online, but with the myriad of options available online, it’s easy to get lost.
Trends change every year, and 2018 is no exception. The booming rise of designer wedding wear, peaking minimalism, and quirky wedding photo shoots have all lead to increased importance of donning the perfect sherwani for the event. Finding the right sherwani has now become aspirational; the perfect sherwani has the power to transform your look on the big day. From dressing up in a Manish Malhotra design like the quintessential hero of a Bollywood blockbuster to looking like pure royalty, the trends for this year look spectacular. Have a look at the 3 biggest trends below:
1. Florals Prints
One of the most crucial elements of a wedding, florals are also finding their place in wedding wear. As per the designs of the fashion mogul Sabyasachi, beautifully patterned floral motifs set against a smooth ivory drape is surely a winner at weddings, whether the ceremony is during day time or night time.
If you prefer going plain with your sherwani, you can always opt for safa in floral prints; this is another trend in today’s time people can’t get enough of. Pair the safa with a matching floral pocket square to complete the look. Your partner in any outfit from the Manish Malhotra Bridal Collection will complement your ensemble perfectly; such is this piece by Manish Malhotra.
2. Power of Light Blue
The truth is out there; while beige, ivory coloured sherwanis are still going to be popular, powder blue and light blue shades in sherwani are bound to find their way into weddings. A universal colour of youth and freshness, light blue adds that fun charm to your wedding outfit, providing just that tone of lightness with a graceful finish. The following design by Varun Bahl is the epitome of the concept. The baby blue falls gracefully over the expanse of ivory and floral motifs. The shimmer from the cloth just makes it look more exquisite.
3. Twist to the Classics
Gold has surely been a popular shade for sherwanis in the past; no one can deny the connection between the shade of gold and Indian weddings. What changes this year is the twist to the classic golden/maroon sherwani. Think asymmetric button layout, an elaborate tassel pattern on the stole, a stunner of a pocket square. The ways in which you can up the game of the classic are aplenty. This gorgeous number by Seven exemplifies the exact yet subtle change you need for your classic golden sherwani. Pair it with a rich maroon stole, and matching maroon salwar to get the royal finish you need.
