This is generally seen to be worn with a churidar or loose pant as it has a flare in the upper portion.

  1. Printed Sherwani

Not everything is about embroidery, silks and brocade. While looking for some unique piece, a printed sherwani is also a favourite because of its rich colours and a mixed style. Moreover, a high-quality fabric is used in making printed sherwanis to bring out the design in them.

Though there are different styles to look for, you cannot ignore the fact that fabric plays an equally major part in elevating the look of a Sherwani. If you are the groom-to-be then this is just the perfect guide to help you out in choosing the right fabric for your Sherwani.

  • Banarasi Silk: The same type of fabric that is also used in Sarees, Sherwanis are also a great success when tailored with silk. The silk could be embroidered with motifs or any other floral pattern that goes well with the colour of fabric beneath it.
  • Velvet: This is a neutral fabric that could be used in jackets, stoles, or the Sherwani body itself. For a winter wedding, velvets would be an intelligent choice for an outdoor celebration of yours to ward off the chill. This seems to be a good choice when you are wearing a jacket Sherwani made of velvet.
  • Leather Pajamas: Might be unknown to you, the Sherwanis today are paired up with a black leather churidar pyjama for a better look. What more? Pair them up with a golden embroidered Sherwani and you would create a look that everyone would be in awe of.
  • Brocade Sherwani: Brocade itself is a richly decorated fabric where the design is woven over silks on golden or silver threads mostly. The elaborate ornamental design on the fabric is such handsomely sewn that you need not wear any accessory if you are not feeling up to it.
  • Jute Sherwani: Jutes are a vintage fabric when you don’t want some extravagant design but still long for a clean-cut look. Then Jute Sherwanis are just what you are looking for. With subtle yet creative designs, they will be your choice at once.

Now go along with any of the styles or any fabric for your wedding or pair it up with your bride-to-be to have a picture perfect moment in front of your guests.
