12 Trending Safas to up the Big-Day Look
Don’t be fazed by all the new trends for brides - here’s how to put the ‘va va voom’ into the groom’s look on your big day.
We know you’re just the absolute expert in speed shopping because you completed your entire wedding shopping in one day, from just one shop. If your bride was a bit horrified by it, she’s not telling. But it’s not that hard to look super snazzy with strategic style. And a little personalization will not only have you looking confident and suave but will ensure a breathtaking smile from her too!
The safa may seem like a small part of your look but it can transform your personality. It’s regal, traditional and you can play around with different colors, materials or styles. Summing up the trends of this season, here are 12 ideas to tie the knot (literally) in the most stylish way!
The Floral Safa
Flower power can create magic with your outfit. Floral Safas in pastels are a definite trend this season and work wonderfully with monochrome outfits (and your bride’s trousseau if she’s a fan of florals too).

The Printed Safas
A prince in prints! Those quirky, versatile geometric prints aren’t just for your shirts anymore. Stand out like the unique groom you are and thank us later. This is something that travels right from Bollywood to Shaadiwood!

The Pastel Safas
The pastel palette has been a steady favorite and with good reason. From sherwanis to mojaris, they complement most brides’ trousseaux and flatter Indian skin tones. So a pastel safa is a surefire charmer that will go well with anything, especially with printed or heavily embellished outfits.
