As increasingly persons are working from house, Shruti provides, “The biggest trend for 2020 is ‘ease’. It’s always said that comfort is fashion, but this year it is more applicable than ever before. Smart t-shirts, coordinated sets and tracksuits are among the most sought-after trends now.” According to her, outsized Oxford shirts will proceed to be in vogue, “Printed shirts are being really accepted well, especially in Punjab. Oversized shirts are also taking over, making clothes gender-neutral.”

Go for layers

Designer Gautam Gupta says gender neutrality is altering the dynamics of trend, “We are seeing more layers, ruffles and drapes being incorporated in kurtas, shirts and even jackets. Print-on-print, oversized clothes, asymmetrical silhouettes; all are being worn by metrosexual men. Millennials today are redefining fashion and taking bolder steps, wearing purple, pink, and red with ease. Then there are bold prints, shimmer shirts and funky accessories.”

Says designer Rachit Khanna, “People have actually realised that life is good with simple and sustainable things. On the other side of the spectrum are those who think that life is just ‘now’, so they want the best in everything. These thoughts are being reflected in men’s fashion too. Men are opting for lighter fabrics, like cottons and linens with fresh pastels, like peaches, pinks and even mint greens.”

Adds Ludhiana-based designer Punit Arora, “We are coming up with a wedding collection that is more ‘value for money’ and will stay as assets in one’s wardrobe rather than being an ensemble that goes out of trend.”

For the grooms

The grooms throughout this time can contemplate Lucknowi embroidery, one thing which Rachit Khanna has launched in his new assortment. “It is all about light fabric kurtas with embroidered waistcoats. I have used fabrics like cotton silk and raw silk for more formal occasions.”

If you loves formal-wear, Rachit has given a special look to tuxedos and fits, “I have embroidered them with tone-on-tone material; not going overboard, but extravagant at the same time.”

Neat cuts

There are numerous issues to play with, as Gautam says, “New motifs, from geometrical to floral, blended textiles in tussar silk to cotton silk to munga georgette; colours like powder pink, sea green, brown, along with contemporary silhouettes, are making festive-wear edgier for men.”

Says Shruti, “People are opting for bell-bottoms, tapered hem, straight fit, boot-cut, skinny fits, kimono fits and more.”
