1. Breezy Suit with Sneakers

You don't have to disappoint the sneakerhead in you, especially not on the nights that you want to dance away. Like Kartik Aaryan, opt for casual pants and blazer combo and pair it with your most stylish sneakers. Do not forget to add your personal touches, such as a shiny waistcoat or wristwatch.

Give your look a facelift with luxe black moccasins.

Don't forget - the key here is colour, material, fit, and styling.

11. Pastel Shervani with Golden Threadwork

As we stated earlier, Kartik's style leans more towards chic and is less extravagant than many of his contemporaries. This sherwani caught our eyes because the colour keeps it subtle while its golden threadwork hits the right chords. Although the overall look is quite a breeze, you can definitely play it up or down with the help of accessories.

Kartik Aaryan's grey suit makes him look like a timeless charmer and can have the same effect on you. To keep the look interesting, customise your suit and make one of its elements - like lapels, collars or buttons - interesting.

While most grooms opt for a tie with their outfits, look solemn and elegant with a bow tie, especially if you wear a classic tuxedo. One of Kartik's latest looks, it is not only flattering but wearable too. You can also wear a bow tie in contrasting colour to add a bit of fun to your outfit - in fact, you must try to colour-coordinate with your bride's outfit.
