British have a style that is envied all over the world, and Americans are not immune to the cutting edge looks that they see on television and in print. What you find in the boutiques and on the streets of London usually makes its way to us in a year or two, and this season is no exception. From business formal to night time casual, the English influence on spring’s fashion can be see everywhere. Here are a few of the looks you will find this season that are borrowed from our friends across the Atlantic.
The most dominant trend to cross the ocean that has in every aspect of fashion is color. More specifically, the color blue is everywhere this year. In menswear blue suits were seen more often that grey or black suits. Blue collared shirts, blue ties and even blue dress socks are the perfect work day accessory. When it is time to get more casual, blue jackets, and cotton shirts are the perfect statement. Women are sporting cobalt blue skirts with blue print tops for business. The opportunities for wearing this new neutral are endless.
Menswear inspired clothing for women is the must have look in the UK this year, and it is catching on in the USA. This look is especially striking in business attire. Extremely tailored outfits with a feminine twist is the way to wear this fashion trend. Some of the business suits are even cut from the same cloth and are designed in a similar pattern to the men’s suits. Accessorize these suits with feminine hairstyles, jewelry, and sexy heels. Far from masculine, the menswear inspired clothing is flattering and attractive without traditionally female patterns, styles and colors. Pair the dark business suit with a tailored short sleeve blouse that has been styled with a ruffle and cap sleeves. You will find that this look follows the curves of a woman’s body unerringly. It is bold and understated all at the same time.
Casual shirts for men are still tailored, but not as close fitting as their formal counterparts. Forget the plain white or blue shirt, a pattern is the way to go. Small navy and wine checks, pink checks, and really any other angular pattern on a white background defines the look. There is a lot of blue here as well, and these tailored shirts are the perfect way to combine the color of the moment with a popular style. Pin stripes in blues, reds, pinks, and purples are another nice break from the monochromatic styles we saw last year.
Similar to Women designer clothing, we find a wonderful collection in men wearing too with an ease of purchasing it online. Today we can find men`s designer clothing in varieties of designs and different fabrics. In occasions like marriage or any other ceremony, men have to switch to dressing that looks traditional as well as most suitable for the occasion. This could be anything from kurta paygama, designer sherwani.
Sherwanis amongst all, is the most popular dressing option for an Indian groom as it signifies style and elegance.
Sherwanis are quite similar to a coat, but it is long and is usually worn over a churidar or a kurta. There are various types of designer sherwanis such as baloochi and peshwari, which are usually bottomed up and makes the groom look graceful and elegant. The groom can also accessorize himself with kalangi or kantha.
The dress has a close body fit and has lining beneath the sherwani. Some of the Indian weeding sherwanis have outstanding crystals and hand embroidered thread work, while others have spectacular stones, mirror, beads, and sequins work.

Sherwanis are comfortable to wear and easy to carry. Apart from the groom even his close friends and relatives can wear traditional sherwanis, along with men’s stoles and kamarbandh. Today even children and teenagers prefer to wear sherwanis in few of the Indian ceremonies. The price of it may vary according to the material and the work done on the sherwani
Sherwani is the perfect fit and the most preferred Indian traditional garments for ceremonies, weddings and receptions.
