Ah, the mehndi. That beautiful pre-wedding event where you can flaunt your latest sunnies and walk around sipping your drink freely, while the women are a little more tied up.
If, however, you have been wondering what to sport for this chic daytime event, look through WedMeGood’s chic suggestions.
Who said men can’t rock floral prints? Mehndis are the perfect occasion to bring out those printed Nehru Jackets. If you need help styling them, try this hack; wear your jacket over a short kurta and pants, instead of over a regular kurta-pyjama for a casual, chic vibe.
We love this long, ankle-length, flared kurta for the guy who is willing to push the envelope. If you’re tall, this silhouette will work wonders for you.
When you aren’t looking, we’re secretly judging you by your shoes. Up the bling quotient by keeping the rest of your outfit simple, along with these zardozi embellished loafers with bird detailing.
Keep it cool and casual with Benarasi stoles draped in unique ways for a bright, wintry mehndi ceremony. Add a pair of John Lennons and you are set, boys.
Don’t shy away from pops of colour. Pair these pink pants with a crisp white shirt and linen blazer for a mehndi look that’s equal parts dapper and comfy.
We’d like to help you out as much as possible, because mehndi shopping is no mean feat. For coloured kurtas and floral print stoles, check out Dhruv Vaish. For brightly-coloured Nehru jackets, we’re loving Brahaan by Narains. Shop Khanijo for everything from kurtas to sherwanis in one place, and check out Stitch By Sarab for alternative silhouettes if you’re willing to experiment.
