The Future of Sherwanis

December 18, 2015

Future Sherwanis

The future of Sherwanis may be even better than it is now. The advanced technology with optimistic and young innovative designers in our current generation have seemed to have stepped up their game and compete to make the best Sherwanis you will ever see.

How communities and cultures will continue to grow

Initially, the sherwani was worn only by men of noble birth or royal status in the Mughal Empire. However, it evolved into traditional, formal attire for respectable men such as professors or academics. The sherwani is still the most commonly worn male garment at Muslim weddings today. Many Indian weddings also note the groom dressed in a sherwani for formal ceremonies such as the reception.

Because Sherwanis are always embroidered in silver or gold thread and decorated with elaborate designs, they are most appropriate for wedding ceremonies which is why the advanced designs that are being produced my obtain interest from other cultures because of the quality of this type of garment.

The timeless royalty of Sherwanis simply can't be beat, and that's why it's the go-to outfit for South Asian weddings. Other menswear includes the more casual men's jackets.

New Styles

Most Sherwanis are cut to fall above the knee and are styled with a Mandarin collar (often with buttons at the top of the garment.) Wedding sherwanis tend to be light in color, as to appear more regal.  Reception Sherwanis are slightly similar but are more subtle in embroidery. However, modern sherwanis can be flexible in length, collar design, and colors due to our current generation being so advanced in the clothing industry.

A churidar (the trousers) is worn under the sherwani, loose at the hips and tight around the ankles. A dupatta, or scarf, may be worn around the shoulders as an embellishment to the outfit.

New Designs

Sherwanis are getting more and more better in its beauty as it's never plain and is always made out of nice fabrics, such as silk, satin, or expensive linen. They are generally decorated much like women's clothing - heavily embroidered, beaded, or embellished with floral patterns.

Wedding Sherwanis are notable for having decorated collars, often embroidered or beaded. Comparatively, a formal sherwani worn to a business event might be more plain and monochrome with little to no embroidery.

Because sherwanis are usually only worn to formal events such as dinner parties, awards receptions, or weddings, they are expected to be extravagant. A Sherwani would not be worn to a casual event - as this attire, while similar to a Sherwani, would fall under the category of a men's jacket or kurta instead.


Since 2015 is coming to an end very soon we decided to list the top three Bollywood celebrity weddings this year. We will look at who gets into this anticipated list and show some fantastic images of their weddings, including the Sherwanis of course.

There is a history for Sherwanis that is rich and interesting to see and deserves some commentary for it from Sherwani King. This article will cover most aspects about the Sherwani so you know exactly how amazing these outfits are.

The History of a Sherwani

The first types of Sherwanis started in South Asia and then evolved soon from a decorative outer-coat known as the 'Choga' which was then loosely worn over a 'Jama' or 'Achkan' which is the knee-length coat. The reason why Sherwanis were invented was to represent a court dress of nobility which the royals of the Mughal Empire wore quite often.

During late nineteenth century, Sherwani evolved into more tight fitted coat worn over a Kurta and replaced the most commonly worn 'Achkan' as court dress among nobility and was more generally adopted by early twentieth century. It was chosen over the achkan only because it had most of the aristocracy compared to it, and later by the general population, as a more evolved form of traditional attire.

How Sherwanis grew popular

People began to notice many high ranked and famous people in India, Pakistan and Bangladesh wearing Sherwanis because it was styled in a modest manner that were lightly embroidered and detailed or it was heavily embroidered. Mohammad Ali Jinnah, the founder of Pakistan frequently wore the Sherwani after winning independence for Pakistan and later on made the Sherwani into it's national dress.

Sherwanis worn by certain communities like Punjabi's and Indians tend to be richly detailed and embroidered. These communities take pride in showing off their wealth and it continues to be the choice for festive celebrations.

It has also become almost customary for bride grooms to wear a Sherwani on their wedding almost always accompanied by a turban and scarf. Wedding sherwanis usually tend to have embroidered collars and have been popularized in recent times by famous designers. One major difference between Sherwani wearing habits in Pakistan is that Pakistanis very rarely wear it with chooridar pyjamas preferring a shalwar instead whilst Bangladeshis and Indians are distinguished by their preference for churidas.
