Sherwani for Men: 10 Types for Every Event

Sherwani for Men: 10 Types for Every Event

For days and evenings when a simple kurta just won’t do, a sherwani might be exactly what you need. Giving off a more stately and regal appearance, these knee-length jackets offer structure and style when layered over top of a kurta.

A popular style in Indian men’s formal wear, sherwanis are also a top choice for Indian grooms. From bold, brass buttons to classic baroque-style threadwork, let’s take a look at ten of our top choices every man needs in his wardrobe.

10 Sherwani Styles Every Man Should Own

Golden Silk Sherwani

Timelessly stylish, this Golden Silk Sherwani is adorned with metallic golden buttons down the front and along the cuffs. The garment itself does sport a particular sheen without being too metallic or flashy for daytime events. A high collar adds structure and style, while the longer cut still boasts a traditional silhouette. Golden cream straight-cut trousers are included, as is a rich, deep purple pocket square. 

This simplistic design is appropriate for all occasions, all seasons, and will never go out of style. It is definitely a staple piece every man needs in their closet.

Mint Jacquard Sherwani

An ideal hue for springtime gatherings, the Mint Jacquard Sherwani offers a bit more individual style. A golden, shimmery fabric features mint green and leafy designs, ideal for the new, warmer season. Two gold buttons affixed to the top of the sherwani fasten, allowing the rest of the garment to hang open and show off the kurta worn beneath. 

Matching buttons are also found on the cuff and at the pocket square, where two stylish chains are draped. This sherwani is paired with a soft, light, sky-blue rayon top extending down past the knees and a pair of slim-fitting silk bottoms.

Multicolor Sherwani

Sometimes, solid colors and traditional designs just aren’t enough. The Multicolor Printed Sherwani is one of the most unique and eclectic pieces in our collection. This one-of-a-kind sherwani features geometric and prismatic designs down the length of the garment and is adorned with a structured collar and golden buttons down the front. 

The luxe satin top comes with a pair of fitted cotton bottoms. Everyone needs a statement piece, and the digitally printed satin sherwani is a top-notch option. Like every item in our collection, this set is made in India and is hand-checked to guarantee you will be fully satisfied with the quality and style.

Off-White Printed Sherwani

Bright, bold, jewel-toned colors can be lovely, but sometimes, these deeper hues can attract and hold onto heat, something not necessarily enjoyable during the hotter months of the year. This is where our Off-White Printed Sherwani would be a fine choice. Digitally printed satin boasts geometric-patterned elephants across the entirety of the sherwani. 

Featuring the beloved Indian Elephant, this sherwani is perfect to wear when attending weddings, religious events, and other similar gatherings. It is paired with a comfortable set of white cotton trousers to only add to the ensemble's comfort factor.

Light Orange Brocade Sherwani

Our Light Orange Brocade Sherwani is an ideal choice for formal gatherings and other occasions where you need to show up and show out. Stretching down to the knees, this orange brocade sherwani features an intricate golden pattern, only further accentuated by the golden buttons on the cuffs and down the top half.

The shimmery gold in elements of the outfit easily pairs with golden jewelry and other accessories, elements which will only further dress up and pull the look together. 

A thicker fabric choice than others in our line, the brocade element offers structure and style. This Sherwani is paired with a stunning neutral golden cream bottom. 

Multicolor Black Printed Sherwani

Sometimes, you need a look strictly meant for elegant evenings out or the cooler months of the year when you might want to stray from shades of tan or white. Similar to our Multicolor Printed Sherwani, our Multicolor Black Printed Sherwani makes for a lovely evening or wintertime alternative to your wardrobe.

Unique from our other ensembles, this outfit comes with a black cotton pair of slim-fitting pants that ooze elegance and class. The black stands out with marigold, blue, and turquoise, adding contrast and color without being too bold or brash.

Pink Satin Printed Sherwani

Stay easy and breezy in our Pink Satin Printed Sherwani. Delicate pale pink dupioni silk is the perfect backdrop for a sprinkling of red and pink flowers and greenery. Effortlessly and uncomplicated white straight-legged trousers complete the work and tie everything together. 

Best of all, this outfit is available in boy’s sizes and coordinating outfits for women and girls, making it an excellent choice for family photos or other gatherings where the whole clan is showing up. The same pattern on Sherwani is carefully placed along the edge of the girl’s and women’s lehenga and the matching blouses.

Red and Black Velvet Sherwani

For a show-stopping, head-turning look that exudes luxury and style, look no further than our Red and Black Velvet Sherwani. Velvet in and of itself is an excellent textile for evenings, autumn and winter months, and times when you want to take things up a notch or two (or more). A contrasting row of intricate, shiny gold buttons extends down the front. 

The collar and cuffs boast excellent zari work, only adding to the prestige of the look. Vivid, ruby-red santoon bottoms add a vibrant pop of color to complete the look, allowing you to stand out in a crowd, on the dance floor, and beyond.

Lavender Velvet Sherwani

If you’re looking for something easy on the eyes in a different shade than what you might already have in your closet, consider our Lavender Velvet Sherwani. This delicate pastel shade serves as the ultimate backdrop for a multi-colored floral detailing sprinkled down the arms, sides, and closure of the sherwani. 

While some of our sherwani sets are sold with neutral or golden-toned pants, this set carries the lavender sheen through to create monochromatic perfection. Like some others we’ve spoken about, this outfit is also available as a Soft Lavender Embellished Gharara Suit.

When paired together, you’re sure to be the talk of the town, the envy of Instagram, and definitely #CouplesGoals.

Black and White Silk Sherwani

Seldom do other color combinations command respect in the way black and white do. Our Black and White Silk Sherwani is a flawless example. A solid black sherwani is an ideal base for golden head coverings, jewelry, and other metallic elements.

Golden buttons down the front and along the cuffs only further pull it together. Straight-legged white trousers offer the greatest form of color contrast.

A Versatile Garment for Every Event

Reminiscent of nobles and royalty, sherwanis are one of the most formal additions every man needs in his wardrobe. Whether you are the groom, a guest, or coming together for another family function, a sherwani is the best way to combine traditional silhouettes with modern, gilded glamor when a kurta may not be enough.

Each piece in our collection is made in India and inspected by hand to guarantee you and your family receive only the highest quality. With many of our sherwanis also available in matching styles for women and children, take the opportunity to make sure you are prepared for all the upcoming celebrations in the new year today.
