Woody Allen says, “Eternal Nothingness is fine if you happen to be dressed for it.” For quite some time, growing up, festival celebrations ended up being an overdose of family and sometimes family friends, who’d we would just rather be happy avoiding. It all just seemed like an eternal nothingness, and then we chanced upon dressing up and suiting up for festivities and that did make everything better, didn’t it?
So, with that sweet nostalgia and the exciting anticipation of a major festival knocking on our doors, we decided to put together carefully styled outfits for the Modern Indian Gentleman.
So Gentlemen and Ladies (for the guys in your life), what we are about to reveal are classic, time tested yet contemporary styles which will give you a sure shot hall pass at looking dapper all through Diwali.
This look is one to rock at a formal festive-do, at the office party or a get-together at your boss’s, or if you’re planning on playing the host for your colleagues.
A plain chic white kurta , with a slight piping on the collar is a must have for your wardrobe, festivities or no festivities! Pair this with a out-of-the-box royal jodhpur pants, to add a bit of a flamboyance to the your day! A Nehru Jacket will definitely be a trustworthy companion on your way to being Dressed to Kill!
Accessorize this with a pocket square in a bright color or if you feeling a bit more adventurous, go ahead and experiment with prints on the pocket squares, there are loads of options available which will fit into everyone’s comfort zones! A classic analog watch and a bracelet will round up the look for you. Do not forget to have a pair of printed socks and brogues or oxfords and you are set to be the cracker this Diwali!

The next one will take you through the more traditional part of the festivities, the puja, the laddoo eating, cracker bursting, teen patti sessions and more.
Don a Kurta and a Churidaar Pyajama, with a standout piece of embroidered design, we would not go for a gaudy colour, pair it with loafers or espadrilles and Diwali is yours, my friend!
