The men’s ethnic wear segment has come up in a big way in recent years. The traditional Indian dressing for both men and women at festivals, weddings, and other occasions has become quite the trend. And at this time of the year, what men are looking forward to are the new trends in Men’s Diwali wear.

Diwali ethnic dressing starts with the parties that preceded Diwali. New styles in Kurta Pajamas, Nehru jackets, and trendy cuts of the traditional achkans and kurtas are something most men look forward to buying. We at Hoppingo have made it easier for you and saved you a lot of time by curating a list of all new trends and styles for this year’s Diwali wear.



Diwali Men’s Fashion

Men’s ethnic wear has undergone a lot of change in recent years in terms of silhouettes, styles, fabrics, colors, prints, and more. Solid color kurtas with boldly printed jackets are trending as are Nehru jackets in pastel shades. A monotone outfit can be paired with a floral printed jacket to give a trendy cool Diwali look.

Traditional pajamas have been replaced with churidars and dhotis. In case you are not comfortable in either, an Indo western look can be created by wearing narrow cigarette pants that look great with shorter kurtas and can be teamed with Nehru jackets.

Another Indo Western look that has become quite popular this year is the Jodhpurs. Team it with an asymmetrical jacket or a casual shirt for the trendy Diwali party look.

Diwali Ethnic Wear Must-Have

Another must-have for the ethnic wardrobe is a pair of white churidaar. A white churidaar is so versatile that it can be paired with any color kurta for the traditional ethnic look. So get a few Kurtas and team them with the white churidar.

Another easy addition to the ethnic look is the Safa or dupatta which can be worn around the neck, hanging in the front. A solid pastel outfit with a darker safa will definitely make your presence felt. A must-have is a gold or maroon Safa that will go with most of the kurtas.


That’s not all, we spoke to Kamal Lakhwani who has his own Label by the name of Studioawadh which showcases men’s ethnic wear. We asked him the latest trends for this year’s Diwali wear and this is what Kamal had to say.
