‘Men should not be fussy over looks' – these words are no longer applicable since a lot of effort is placed to look chic and faultless on every occasion; be it religious or social.
When it's Eid, the tension intensifies because one must look their best self, as this is the occasion when they get to meet friends, family and professional acquaintances, all in a day.
However there's a bit of apprehension during Eid-ul-Azha, since it includes an almost bloody affair with the sacrifice of the animal!
Does it mean on such instances we forget fashion? On the contrary, actually!
White on white is like a tradition for most men on Eid, why not switch it with a complete black outlook?
If you think a coal, black, inky look would be uncomfortable in the ravaging heat of the summer, opt for Khaki, walnut brown, smokey topaz or different shades of blue like navy, midnight or Spanish blue. The basic idea is to stick to a solid colour that doesn't look shoddy, even if stained.
That was for morning on D-day of course, but after all the religious affairs are complete, comes the instance to unwind with friends and family. And this time there's simply no boundaries!
Jamawar has become the most trending material for men's waistcoat in 2018. How about pairing a chic print with the white panjabi? To make it even more interesting couple interesting khussas or nagras with the look.
If jamawar is simply not your style then you can go for khaki, linen, khadi or silk waistcoat paired with wooden or metallic buttons.
Manly enough? We guessed the same.
For night parties, a simple bold hue with no embroidery looks, a bit too simple. But we sort of find too much work on men's wear slightly on the tacky side. And the dilemma continues…
The easiest way to deal with the crisis is to have simple embroidery around the collar or the buttons, giving a whole new look to any ethnic outfit for men.
But then again if you think all this is too simple for Eid, you are most welcome to be flamboyant with royal colours like teal, sea green and fill it up with intricate hand embroideries or statement sleeves.
After all, clothes must always fit your personality, rain, shine or Eid!
