Use This Guide To Find A Groom’s Outfit That’s Perfect For The Winter

JJ Valaya

Inspired by India’s regal past, JJ Valaya adds a distinctive touch to his grooms’ wear—rich, coloured, and punctuated with embellishments. “India is maximalist at heart, and its weddings, too, follow that spirit. Look and feel the part, but excess has to be elegantly balanced. Pay attention to detail. Accessories, including shoes, cufflinks, belts, and jewellery play a special role on your big day,” says Valaya.

Abu Jani Sandeep Khosla

Be it mirror-work or chikankari, this designer-duo’s take on Indian techniques is simply resplendent. “Grooms can experiment with rich fabrics, such as silks, velvet, and wool. The colour palette can also expand to rich jewel hues and dark tones like burgundy, emerald green, royal or midnight blue, greys, and noir,” advise Abu Jani Sandeep Khosla.


If minimalistic designs with a twist are what you desire, then Antar-Agni is perfect for you. This menswear label creates silhouettes that keep the technical tailoring intact, while introducing a hint of fluidity and movement in the garments to add a unique touch to the outfit. Ujjawal Dubey, founder of Antar-Agni, recommends layering for winter grooms. “[It] becomes the key. One can choose to layer kurtas, waistcoats, and jackets; and even add final touches with shawls.”

Kunal Rawal

As a menswear designer, Kunal Rawal doesn’t require an introduction, thanks to his expansive database of Bollywood fans. But it is his attention to detail that make him one-of- a-kind. “A winter groom has the opportunity to play around with layers to create a unique occasion to wear silhouettes. For a winter groom, it boils down to playing with fabrics,” says Rawal.

Shivan & Narresh

Immaculate tailoring with a pop of colour is what makes designer-duo Shivan & Narresh stand out. Their tailored suits and sherwanis in bright hues can elevate any groom’s style quotient. “There are many diverse options one can choose from in winters—from the finest of wool, structured suiting fabrics, to the deep jewel tones of soft velvets. We feel a silk saafa does the trick of protecting one from the heavy winter and keeps you stylish, as well,” informs the duo.
