5 Nehru Jacket Ideas for Grooms and Groomsmen

Nehru Jacket is a sleeveless coat or jacket, mostly worn by men. It has a Mandarin collar and a button placket resembling the typical Achkan, Sherwani or Bandhgala designs. As the name suggests, the Nehru jacket was commonly worn by the first Prime Minister of Independent India, Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru.


Even today, the style remains a popular choice for grooms and groomsmen to sport at an Indian wedding. There are many fabrics and prints to choose from but here are 5 examples that will score you some points in the fashion sprint:


1. Vibrant colours are in so don’t hesitate in sporting pretty shades like coral, rust pink, eggshell blue, etc.
