Until recently, floral for men wasn’t preferred as much as colour-blocked ethnic outfits were. Owing its lineage to classic spun Sherwanis, and tuxedos that often don’t turn out well for a great number of Indian men, ethnic styles have slowly but surely transcended to subtle detailing, floral motifs, Chikankari jackets, and the shift has been a breath of fresh air. Indian men have shown some great sense of fashion in these traditional wears.

Now, Indian men don’t just rely on a black pant-suit but have a plethora of options from floral jackets to Bandhgalas, longer jackets, to quirkier prints and the latest trend of Manarkalis. Here are some Kurta with jacket for men #OOTD for inspiration!

Raw-silk Jacket

Silk is a heritage weave that looks classy, owing to its subtle sheen. A neutral kurta and a silk jacket with delicate motifs is a fresh take on the traditional silk ensembles for men. The subtle Aztec self-design running through the jacket reigns on this raw silk Nehru jacket. It can be paired with a pastel or subtle coloured silk kurta and amped with a quirky printed pocket square, a Safa and printed cuffs too.

Who said quirky is casual? Take cues from actor Ranveer Singh’s Mehndi look! He looked fresh and put together in a pastel kurta-pyjama set paired with a floral Nehru jacket. So simple and tasteful, isn’t it? Another great option to take inspiration from, is his pink Nehru jacket with floral motifs. keeping it aesthetic, Sabyasachi's creation is a masterpiece. More and more men are now switching to gender-fluid colours, are you on the wagon yet?

Those of us who cannot get enough of blue in their wardrobe, the good news is – the official Pantone colour of the year is Classic Blue! Try experimenting with a mix of darker tones and pastel colours. Go for a plain kurta-pyjama, and colour block it with a deeper hue jacket. We love the subtle look with the Bandhgala from Aviraj Saluja.

Subtle Self-designs in pastel

A self-design running through the jacket with intricate handmade pin-tucks is an offbeat choice for men who love to experiment, with the pastels shades being a cherry on top. Pair it with a silk Safa and a printed cotton kurta that goes perfectly with the summer wedding vibes. Voila, you are ready for the day ceremonies to roll!

If you love an unconventional, eccentric sense of style, the Manarkali is here for the showstopper's look. These gender-fluid silhouettes break the norms of power dressing, thus giving it the millennial twist we much adore.
