5 Ways to Style the Nehru Jacket for the Indian Groom !

BY The WMG Bride | 03 May, 2014 | 53051 views | 3 min read

It is the single most versatile piece of clothing in any guys cupboard and come the wedding season, a grooms best friend !! You can wear it as easily for a casual brunch , as for a cocktail night and we think a guy in a Nehru Jacket done right is guaranteed swoon material.


#1 Pair it with Jodhpurs : Perfect for the groom on a casual morning mehendi or night time cocktail

Take it from us, nothing makes a girl swoon faster than a guy in a well fitted Nehru Jacket with Jodhpuri Pants (picture on left!!).  You have heard about the 'men in uniform' weakness we have right? This makes you look like you stepped right from a polo match and while Raghavendra Rathore made this silhouette popular ,  you can switch up the colors to make it suitable for a casual morning event or a night cocktail.




#2 Printed Buttons and pocket square: Perfect for the brother of the bride/groom

Understated but with a fashion forward twist, a plain Nehru Jacket becomes super stylized with some printed buttons with a pocket square to match. Choose a print in a color that pops against the color of the jacket. For example- the brown and red button print really stands out against the cream Nehru Jacket.


#3 Try an Ombre Effect Nehru Jacket: Perfect for a Pooja 

Soft Powder Blue , Pinks and Mint greens work best in these shaded, ombre effect Nehru Jackets. Keep the rest of your look classic with a white shirt/ kurta and let the shading do the talking.



#4: Try it with a Kurta. Switch up your churidar with a dhoti !

Colorblock your Nehru Jacket against a kurta , and  let it pop. But tf you really want to push the fashion envelope, do a spin on these Tarun Tahiliani pieces by pairing your Nehru Jacket with a dhoti. You dont have to make it as elaborate as this- A Dhoti style salwar works just as well under the kurta



#5 Classic Shirt tucked out with Jeans Style: Perfect for a friend of the groom!

Anil Kapoor shows you how to carry of these look with ultra ease. Just a pair of blue jeans, a white shirt tucked out and a black Nehru Jacket on top makes for a casual, effortlessly suave look.
