Sherwani is a classic ethnic dress worn by men from different areas ,cultures and religions across the Indian subcontinent. The sherwani was first modeled as a combination of Indian kurta pajama and British frock dress, but today it has turned into an easily recognizable and trendy dress in India. It is regarded for its elegant and decorated look and is chosen for important occasions such as festivals, marriages, functions, etc. High fashion designers worked on this one clothing item and re-invented it in a variety of ways to make it desirable to the modern man.The Indo western sherwanis is one of the most famous types of sherwanis on the market currently, greatly loved and adored by the younger generation of men who do not want to give up their comfort and elegance when dressed in ethnic clothing. 

Indo western sherwani patterns nowadays closely match the mid-century designs, adding a more trendy western style and a lighter selection of colors.Basically, the Indo western sherwanis bring western design in the form of a smarter shape, simplified designs, button openings or any other modern improvement to the regular sherwanis.They might also limit the number of layers in the dress (so it doesn’t have to be worn with a men’s kurta as is usually expected) or add some type of western vest to make it perfect. The new Indo western sherwani could even include trendy necklines like an open collar, a collar v-neck , a high neck and as well as a coat like a button opening down the body.   

Although these suits are available in designs that can be worn for casual meetings, office functions, as well as other day-to-day activities, most of them are meant to be worn for special events such as festivals and weddings too.Indo western sherwanis are among the most ornate looking for wedding occasions, although the patterns may be more inspired by western than Indian culture.Borders can be designed with crystals, stones and sequins and it can be used to make delicate designs across the sherwani. An Indo western sherwani for grooms will be the most exquisite and decorated to look at, and may even add some Indian work like  zardosi, zari, gota patti and cut dana. Though the designs created in their appearance are typically simpler and more western, including dots, shapes, waves and lines.

Despite that Indo western sherwanis are chosen for their trendy and contemporary look, when it comes to weddings, men usually like something which includes a traditional look.
