Bundi Styles and How To Pair It

Bundi jackets (more commonly known as sleeveless Nehru jackets) are classic pieces of traditional Indian wear that have withstood the test of time. This high collared design is favoured by politicians in the past but proves to be an increasingly popular design amongst modern-day sartorialists. Read on below for tips on how to style a Bundi outfit with a contemporary edge to an otherwise classic ensemble.

For a casual and chic outfit | Lounge and relax in a Himalayan Rose coloured linen Bundi paired with a casual white Henley with sleeves rolled up for that extra comfortable vibe. Dress it up slightly by wearing it closed with a bright pocket square for a look that's effortlessly sophisticated or keep it relaxed by wearing it unbuttoned with casual tapered chinos. Complete either styling options by pairing the outfit with tasselled loafers (no socks!) to achieve that perfect modish off-duty look. It's casual wear that's chic and still comfortably stylish.

For a traditional modernist attire | Introduce an Indo-western semi-formal look to your wardrobe by pairing a classic black Bundi with a Vintage Jodhpuri shirt to merge the very best of traditional Indian clothing with a new world edge. When it comes to colours, you can pair bright contrasting hues for a much bolder look or style within a colour palette to fashion a mellow but leisurely smart attire. For an extra modern point of view: complete the look with skinny, ankle-length trousers and white sneakers. For a more simple, straightforward look: consider pairing it with your favourite casual trousers and derby shoes.

For a modern yet traditional ensemble | Traditional Indian fashion never goes out of trend so why not embrace the rich cultures of traditional Indian clothing and put together your next memorable look by pairing a Bundi with a classic kurta. Consider a minimalist approach by styling two pieces in the same colour for a more thoughtful and refined style. Combine the outfit with monk strap or whole cut shoes to personalise the look with an elevated modern touch.

For an elegant outdoor adventure | Stand out from the crowd whenever you're out and about by sporting a Bundi with a white shirt along with some spectacular Jodhpuri pants like our classic Porcelain Handcrafted Jodhpur Breech. Accessorise with a simple lapel or silk pocket squares to show off your personality. Finish the look with semi or full brogue shoes for a royally unique take.
