Top trends for the 2018 groom are:
1. Asymmetrical Cuts:
The most common trend seen in most of the outfits this season is the ‘asymmetrical cut’. It definitely adds a more edgy appeal to the classic outfits.
To add a pop of colour and patterns, layering the sherwani with a contrasting coloured kurta is the definite element to make a less boring outfit.
Colours always help makes you stand out from the rest. Pastels in the shades of blue, yellow and pink look amazingly chic on a groom.
4. Inner Lining:
For the public, linings would not make much of a difference. But, in reality, it is a vital element of your garment. Contrast linings with distinct patterns are for the grooms who do not necessarily want to be over the top.
5. Geometric Accessories:
Be it a brooch or a lapel pin, handcrafted geometric accessories are most subtle options for the groom. Add a pop of colour and fun with geometrically printed pocket squares matched with classic sherwanis.
Be it a sherwani, a brooch or a trouser – a hint of metallic shades is a must in your outfits. It can be an extremely elegant option while making a statement.
7. Detailed Tuxedos:
Shy away from the classic black tuxedo and experiment further with a hint of detailing in the tuxedo. Commonly observed elements such as belt detailing, buttons or even textured fabrics are the go-to options to modify the classics.
