#ELLEMan: Best Friend’s Wedding Coming Up? Here’s All The Outfit Inspo You Need


Cue the shehnais and get started on perfecting your dance moves because the wedding season is in full swing. Whether it’s your sibling’s wedding or your best friend’s, being a member of the ‘I do’ crew is always exciting. The role requires you to constantly be on your toes while taking care of the bride/groom’s needs— but that doesn’t mean you can’t look good while tackling an emergency! Take inspiration from our favourite Bollywood men to choose the perfect outfit for the festivities:

Asymmetry All The Way

Add a dynamic touch to your look and step outside the lines of convention like Aditya Seal has with his asymmetric cut kurta by Siddartha Tytler.

Bombay Velvet 

Velvet is the talk of the town this season! Kartik Aryan’s green velvet Manish Malhotra sherwani is perfect for the evening functions during these winter months.

Metallic Magic 

Metallic sheen is an instant party hit! Rajkummar Rao takes the adventure one step further by pairing his metallic blue Amit Aggarwal jacket with black harem pants.

Bollywood Blockbuster

As Anjali from K3G would say, “Lucknow da kurta, Pathani salwar; tab lage mard, varna lage bekaar.”

Experiment With Your Bandhgala 

Ishaan Khatter looks regal in a mauve ensemble by Sarah & Sandeep. Take a page out of his stylebook and add some pizzazz to your regular bandhgala by opting for an off-centre style with buttons on the shoulder. Create asymmetric balance by pairing it with a kurta featuring a slanting hemline.

Or Keep It Classic

You can never go wrong with the classics. Ranbir Kapoor is sophistication personified in this midnight blue Sabyasachi sherwani detailed with silver buttons.

Turn Up The Colour  

Why should the bridesmaids have all the fun? Amp up the colour in your outfit like Siddharth Malhotra to get the party started and don’t forget a statement brooch to go along with it.

Or Take The B&W Route 

Not a fan of colours? No problem! Take inspiration from Siddharth Malhotra’s monochrome Shantnu & Nikhil ensemble and opt for some intricate B&W prints.

Layer Up 

Add interest to your outfit by introducing some layers. Follow Varun Dhawan’s footsteps and wear a pleated sheer kurta under your sherwani.

Nehru Jackets 

Let Ayushman show you just how cool a Nehru jacket can look when it’s dipped in hot pink and paired with a kurta featuring a draped effect. Pro tip: Ditch the formal shoes for cool sneakers for some extra comfort that will allow you to dance the night away.

Suit Up 

Sherwanis and kurtas aren’t the only options— let Ranveer Singh inspire you to pick a well-fitted suit. Feeling adventurous? opt for a metallic or embellished blazer to make a statement.
