Drawing inspiration from Indian sensibilities, fashion designers are creating new trends in sherwani and salwar kameez.

Adding elegance to the wearer’s look, this piece of clothing is perfect for any formal occasion. On the other hand, kalidar suit for woman is a traditional outfit that has a fitted bodice and flared hemline with beautiful alternate panels. Originated from the Mughal era, this silhouette is as grand and regal as the era itself. Read on to learn more about the new trends in sherwani and salwar suit designing for this season.

With a high awareness of fashion and style, men in India and other corners of the world are experimenting with the Indian ethnic look. Without any doubt, the sherwani has emerged as a clear winner in the men’s ethnic wear category. Though men in India prefer casual and comfortable clothing, but special occasions like weddings have always witnessed bountiful demand for bespoke clothing. Apart from adding a rich traditional look, this royal three piece attire makes the wearer stand out in the crowd by making him look tradional yet stylish.

Indian grooms are often seen wearing beautifully embroidered and embellished sherwanis for their weddings. This majestic clothing includes sherwani (long kurta), pyjama, and stunning dupatta. Highlighting the royal heritage clothing style of the Rajputs and kings or maharajas, sherwani is considered auspicious for special occasions such as weddings. Aari, zari and zardozi work, highlighted with sequins, gemstones, crystals, precious and semi precious stones accentuate the look of a sherwani and hence offer a distinctive look to the groom. To add a contemporary twist, a sherwani can also be worn over with a pair of classy dhoti pants.

Indian fashion designers like Rohit Bal, Abu Jani-Sandeep Khosla and Tarun Tahiliani create designs that set the ramp ablaze. According to the latest trends, ornate velvets, rich embroidery and beautiful brocade sherwanis rule this wedding season. In terms of the color palette, classic black, timeless white, and shimmery gold are the colors of the season that add a touch of elegance to the indisputable look of a sherwani.

Moving on from the trendy sherwani designs for 2012, let’s check some designs of salwar suits that are going to be in vogue this season.

Designer salwar suits have always been in the limelight, with Indian designers discovering new and innovative cuts and silhouettes. Kalidar suits in warm palettes will rule the festive season this year. While pastel shades woven in lighter fabrics like cotton, chiffon, and organza work as a magic during the summers. Bling never goes out of fashion in Indian garb, so adding some dust of gold mixed in hues of crimson, green, fuchsia, and tangerine and makes you ready for a fashionable dip of surreal ethnicity.

Other elements that add femininity to any collection of salwar suits is the impeccable use of flirty tassels. Beautiful metallic beads, colorful pompoms, musical ghungroo beads, and sequined balls that adorn the sleeves, neckline, waistline, and bust line add a pinch of naughtiness to the silhouette and cut.

Eminent designers like Manish Malhotra, Ritu Kumar, JJ Valaya, Tarun Tahiliani use luxe fabrics, beautiful embellishments, intricate embroideries and stunning colors and create different styles of salwar suits, keeping intact the richness of Indian textiles.

The latest trend setters, which work wonders for any special occasion, are anarkali suits. With a little experimentation and a modern twist, this attire looks ravishing on women with any body type. Anarakali suits are available in different lengths. Short, knee-length frock size kalidar kurtas can be nicely teamed up with a pair of churidars, while long ankle-length anarkali kurta can be worn as a long dress for an ethnic yet contemporary look.

So, gear up for the upcoming wedding season and add some spark to your traditional clothes with a stylish salwar kameez or a glam sherwani.
