If you thought it was only the ladies who enjoyed wearing traditional, then you are probably out of touch with style! And it's about time this misconception is cleared out.
Contrary to popular belief, men actually have numerous style combinations to try — for both formals and casuals. And panjabis are just the tip of the crown for formals, making the gentlemen look their best in almost every style. This Qurbani Eid, designer Humaira Khan introduces an amazing men's line for panjabis that are both striking to the eyes and comfortable to wear at all times, from her brand ANIKINI.
Without further ado, here are a few styles to keep an eye on.
Asymmetric and Flying
The asymmetric styles are modern and experimental. Men who like fresh and trendy designs should try out these contemporary looks.
Chinese it is
The sleek and straight Mandarin panjabis are best suited for men who are tall and slim. The collar that may look binding and narrow, does not actually feel constrained when worn. If you are not a big fan of Chinese designs, try to remember that Keanu Reeves actually wore a similar style in the Matrix trilogy and looked 100 percent debonair and charming.
Cotton panjabis have always been a favourite amongst South-East Indian men. But another popular fabric that has been coming up lately to beat the heat of the summer in the subcontinent has been the ultra-comfortable linen.
Linen as a material is excellent for the hot months, as well as all round the year. And the best thing about linen is that is very light.
There are countless other styles besides the ones discussed. And this Eid might be the right time to explore all these designs. Here are a few hints: muffler styles, plaid panjabi, jacket panjabi, Gujrati, Pathani, Kabuli, Middle-eastern, Kolkata, and the list goes on forever.
If you haven't tried out any of these, then you are probably missing out on the best in fashion possibilities.
