What is meant by vogue? Vogue is defined as the prevailing fashion or style at a particular time. ‘Walk On The Vogue Side’ is the third edition and it’ll be covering my knowledge of ethnic fashion. Ethnic style in fashion is an important, yet somewhat neglected area in our Lifestyle.
Ethnic fashion and wear cover all the Indian traditional category of clothing which is worn by Indian women and men as the sign of their culture. It includes Saree, Salwar Kameez, Lehenga and Kurti for the women and Kurta Pyjama, Sherwani, Dhoti Kurta for men.
I have always believed that clothing tends to have a great impact on our personality. In a country like India, you can easily discover different individuals who wear different outfits of various colours. Even the clothing scenario is diversified but still, you have a choice of either joining the trendy flow or to create your own style statement.
I personally feel western wear gives a freedom of expression whereas a traditional wear allows you to get in that flavour of your culture and traditions.
Yes, the Indian wedding season is here and there are a number of invites lying at home. Everyone loves attending this wedding season because of the food on the primary importance but there’s always one issue and that is deciding what to wear, especially with men.
So, this time rather than a dark or light coloured shirt or tee, I decided to give an ethnic touch to my look. I went up for an olive green kurta-pyjama with a touch of embroidery on it and matched it up with a multi-coloured colour splash waistcoat.
You can expand your style horizon by going for blue or olive green shades. Kurta Pyjamas are highly versatile so experiment with them as much as you can but make sure that your whole outfit is colour coordinated. Used this Red Polka Dot Jaipuri Chunni to enhance the overall look and to add a ‘Shahi or Nawab’ texture to the all over personality in the frame.
So, done with the first outfit now and next, I went up for a plain Khadi Kurta and paired it with a red and black checkered waistcoat with a slight sparkle on its outer adding to an exceptionally different outfit look. A black formal watch with a black aviator will do the rest for your outfit.
I completed this look by adding a dash of colour with a Maroon pocket square which gives a royal touch to the entire look.
So, if you haven’t still decided what to wear for the weddings coming ahead, go for a Kurta Pyjama with a waistcoat so as to provide a feel of Bandhgala to it. Trust me, you’ll be the show stopper!
