When it comes to streetwear trends, sneakers are by far the most popular.
From casual day outs to formal evenings, sneakers have managed to infiltrate all kinds of occasions and styles.
Rightly so, they pretty much go with everything. However, when it comes to ethnic wear, most of us think that sneakers won’t be a good choice.
Surely we have seen many celebrities rocking the sneaker and kurta trend. However, only a few of them get the trend on-point!
Hera are our top 5 favourite sneaker-kurta looks that are sure to inspire you to try out the trend for yourself.
1. Ayushmann Khurrana
This Bollywood star is known for his out-of-the-box characters, singing and of course his brilliant sense of style. This particular look worn by him is a great example of how you can re-use your white sneakers for ethnic occasions too. Be it a pooja or a festival like Diwali, sneakers will help you be in the go with preparations and still look stylish.
2. Anand Ahuja
We all know how big a sneakerhead Anand Ahuja is. It’s not really surprising to see him in sneakers during his wedding celebrations too. In this particular look, he is seen wearing a classic sherwani with white pajamas. The look is conventionally never worn with sneakers, but now we know how great it can look with them!
3. Aparshakti Khurrana
From one stylish brother to another, Aparshakti Khurrana is already emerging as one of the most stylish young actors in India. This look is a classic black and golden ethnic outfit, something that you can never go wrong with. The best part of the look for us, however, is the slightly worn out pair of sneakers.
4. Shahid Kapoor
For anyone who loves to experiment with Indo-western styles, this next look is perfect for you. When it comes to traditional wear, Shahid Kapoor never disappoints us. The same goes for this not-so-basic look. He kept his entire look monochromatic and made the sneakers the statement piece. Like we said, sometimes, it’s all about the right shoes!
5. Kartik Aaryan
Lastly we have a Kartik Aaryan look for all those men out there who like to keep it simple and sexy. Even though what Kartik is wearing here aren’t exactly sneakers, they are the perfect kind of footwear for an ethnic party wear look. In other words, go for a pair of platform slip-ons instead of your usual sneakers if you want to stand out.
There you go! These were our top 5 ethnic wear looks that you can take inspiration from. With the festive season just around the corner, we hope this style guide helps in putting you in a festive mood.
