While women have a lot of options for festivals and celebrations, men seem to be stuck with a limited pile. Well, we’re going to change that. With Flipkart, MissMalini will show how to interpret traditional dressing with an updated sense of style, this Diwali. You have a selection of products, styles and tricks to choose from, and we’ve laid it all out for you!

Tone On Tone

It’s as simple as it sounds. All you need to do is keep one colour running all through your look. It needs no rocket science or a fancy stylist. Just pick a colour and follow it through your kurta, pyjama and shoes to look dramatically cool!

Trick: Don’t get stuck in trying to match all the separates with the same shade. The tones can differ but exist in the same colour family. So, if you have a kurta-pyjama set in one colour, you could team it with a pair of shoes in a tone that is closest to that colour.

Prints Play

Prints are always a fun element to add to your look. Choose from stripes and checkers or even polka dots. The options are plenty and they can be styled in more ways than one.

Trick: Don’t just stick to prints on kurtas. Keep your look fresh with printed pyjamas to go with your solid kurtas.

Set in Separates

Separates are perfect to multiply your wardrobe into more options. Try different combinations, even with your kurta-pyjama set. For example, you can keep the kurta from an all-blue set and wear it with a pyjama from an all-white set.

Trick: Try using separates to colour block. The trick to good colour-blocking lies in the way the colours play against each other.

Suit Up!

Dress your Kurta-Pyjamas, just as you would dress up in a suit. Use the same sensibility and inspirations with classic and contemporary styles in blazers, waistcoats and shoe combinations, but in a desi context.

Trick: For day functions, pastel blazers with white kurta –pyjamas and formal shoes is a suave look for you to rock. You could also use a waistcoat instead of the blazer and don’t forget to add a coloured pocket square to complete the look.

Be wise, accessorize.

Kolhapuri chappals, mojaris and other Indian traditional footwear are always the usual pick for festivities. But if you want to step out and try something alternative, then do it. Boots, sneakers and loafers could serve as cool stand-ins for traditional footwear.

Trick: If you’re trying a tone on tone look in cotton or even khadi, then try a pair of leather boots for that street-cool-meets-desi boy look.
