Known for his men’s label offering seamless integration of rich Indian heritage with modern sensibilities Arjun Kilachand shares with Hashtag Magazine, wedding trends to watch out for this season.
The defining fashion trend for wedding wear in 2021 is going to be minimalism and versatility. With weddings getting more intimate and smaller, grooms are likely to move from heavier, ostentatious pieces to statement, timeless pieces that are comfortable, light yet elegant. Grooms are looking to experiment with new colours and modern silhouettes.
Here is a breakdown of the new year trends:
Move over bright, colourful themes, pastels are here! Brides and grooms are opting for softer palettes for their Mehendi. Frozen blue, mint green are the colours that grooms can opt for. Lightweight kurtas or bundi sets with tonal, minimal embroidery will be in the limelight.
Easy silhouettes with shimmery highlights to stand out will continue to be in trend this year as well. Salli work is garnering interest. Go for vivacious colours like cherry red, deep blue and olive green that are eye-catching. A deconstructed bundi set offers loads of flexibility and is perfect for a Sangeet night. If one does not wish to experiment much, a classic bandhgala in deeper hues such as purple or indigo is a great pick.
3. Wedding / Pheras:
Classic pieces are back in demand. Chikan hand embroidered achkans with tonal detailing are great since they are timeless and easy to carry. Minimal embroidery is another trend that is catching up. Indian aesthetics are a personal favourite, and the glamour that hand embroidery brings to a groom’s outfit is impeccable. It is heartening to see more men requesting for hand embroidered details interspersed in their wedding sherwanis.
Embroidered juttis, sandals or mojris are perfect to team up with an Indian outfit. Go for colours that are in sync with the whole look.
Watch out for custom-made footwear in 2021 like brogues, oxfords and loafers, made from finest quality leather.
To conclude, I would encourage grooms to wear something that accentuates their personality and does not bog them down through a day of festivities. Try picking an outfit that is in vogue but make sure you feel comfortable in what you wear.
