Looking at the different aspects of men’s fashion, many will agree that ethnic wear has a slight edge above the rest. Every tiny detail in an ethnic outfit, from the clothes themselves to the jewellery and footwear, all come together to help you pull off a genuinely stylish look that shows off your rich cultural background well. Most of all, the footwear with ethnic outfits needs to be picked out with extreme precision to add to the appeal of it but if you ever find yourself in confusion, remember that chappals are something you can always opt for.
Chappals are a highly versatile type of footwear that go well with all traditional clothing. Minimalistic yet fashionable, they blend in well enough to compliment your outfit but not so much that they are unnoticeable. Putting together some ethnic outfit ideas for you to try our at various traditional occasions, here’s a quick style guide to how you can see best style chappals with ethnic outfits:
- Patiala Pants: For a royal, deeply ethnic look, you can pair your chappals with long, traditional kurta and Patiala pants. Along with this, you can drape a sherwani dupatta across one shoulder and use some beaded necklaces to accessorise. Making sure your chappals are colour coordinated with your outfit will help them complement your look very tastefully.
- Kurtas: A kurta and salwar look is one of the ethnic classics you can pull off very quickly. As for footwear with this outfit, nothing goes better than a pair of chappals. A simple, textured kurta with a pair of solid salwar in light colours will complement a contrasting pair of chappals exceptionally well.
- Nehru Jackets: Nehru jackets are an evergreen item of ethnic clothing, and when paired with some chappals, their appeal is unmatched. Wear a bright coloured, neatly embroidered short Nehru jacket layered over a solid kurta pyjama combination. Match your chappals to the Nehru jacket for the perfect balance.
- Short Kurtas: For semi ethnic occasions when you want to keep it casual while adding a traditional element to it, go with a pair of Kolhapuri chappals and a short kurta. Pairing these with jeans is the perfect way to maintain the casual air; you can add an edge of sophistication by wearing a watch.
- Dhotis: With ethnic wear, dhotis are just about as traditional as it gets, and for a complete minimalistic look, nothing will fit the role better than chappals. Wear a cotton kurta with a simple dhoti draped around and a pair of leather chappals. You can use some heavily studded rings to add some weight.
With these ethnic looks that are neatly finished off by a classic pair of chappals, you will have just the thing for every traditional occasion. Chappals help maintain the balance in every ethnic outfit so, with the commencement of this new season, if you’ve been looking to stock up on some stylish footwear, there is nothing better than chappals.
