Sherwani for Men: Groom Styling Ideas, Trends and Tips

by Vikram Sharma Textile designer

The sovereign robe of men's sherwani over cotton vest has come a long way since its inception during the period of British India in the nineteenth century when it was considered the court dress for the nobles and Mughals of the time. Since then, it has established itself as the "Classic" ethnic wear for men, and in the modern era, it has undergone numerous transformations to keep up with the emerging ultra-modern fashion trends.

We will show you how to smartly match your sherwani to your personality and body shape as you present yourself in the most spectacular form for the grand event.


It's your wedding, so don't be afraid to experiment with new styles, cuts, and colors. Even if you've decided to wear a sherwani to a wedding, there are numerous design options to consider. Uneven hemlines, fashionable necklines, layered patterns, prints, and much more.

Contrast or match: 

Determine whether you want to contrast or complement your bride: Bridal outfits will continue to take precedence, so as a groom, you should wait for your bride to finalize her lehenga before selecting your sherwani. You and your bride can then sit down and decide whether you want a contrasted look or a matchy matchy look.

Color play: 

Grooms no longer limit themselves to blacks, browns, blues, and whites. If you are not the adventurous type, go for a simple sherwani in a trendy shade. The color of your sherwani will be determined by your bride's outfit as well as the time of your wedding. Fresher colors work best for summer and day weddings, while deep darker colors work best for winter or night weddings. Rich jewel shades like emerald greens, as well as pastels, mint, and pale blue, are some of the most popular groom colors these days.

These days, layered sherwanis are popular. If you want to try layered sherwani styles, choose contrasting colored layers for maximum impact on your wedding day.

Jacket-style front open sherwanis are also popular these days. Ombre sherwanis are also popular for functions such as mehndi.

Bottom wear experiments are something that all grooms are willing to try. Instead of the same old chudidaar, pair your sherwani with a trendy bottom style like dhoti pants, patialas, or flared pants.

Florals are in: 

Floral for men is becoming increasingly popular. Consider wearing a floral sherwani to make a statement at your wedding, especially if it is in the morning. A floral nehru jacket over a plain kurta is a good way to try the floral trend for pre-wedding ceremonies. If florals are too daring for you, try simple floral embroidered sleeves, floral embroidered shoulders, or even floral safas. If you do not want to wear a floral-printed sherwani paired with cotton lungi or white dhoti, you can still incorporate florals into your outfit. A floral safa or pocket square can make your outfit stand out. Floral embroidery is also a good way to embrace this trend.

Jewel it up: 

Yes, grooms are also wearing neck pieces with their sherwanis. These layered pearls add a regal touch to your entire ensemble. Even emerald layered necklaces are popular with grooms, but make sure you have an unadorned neckline before adding these neck pieces. Grooms can also experiment with brooches and feathers on safas.

Safas were once thought to be very traditional, but in recent years, exciting new safa designs have been spotted on grooms at weddings, making safa a very trendy and cool accessory that every groom should consider sporting. You can match your bride with floral prints, leheriya, geometric prints, or even pastel safas for a well-coordinated elegant wedding look.
