One too many

l Iove the sherwani. Are there ways to wear the same one differently?

—Anit Chawla, Gurugram

I love the sherwani, too! It’s such a timeless garment, you really don’t need more than one.

I’d say the most creative way to make each occasion distinct is by adopting different accents and mannerisms. You could channel a gregarious Belarusian who’s had one cocktail too many. Next time, a Texan border agent with a nervous twitch.

Another option is wearing your sherwani back to front. Or how about putting your legs through the sleeves? The variations seem endless!

If, however, you’re looking for a more (disappointingly) staid approach, then accessories are your friends, my friend. Enamel buttons, jaunty pocket squares, a shawl in the colder months—a traditional sherwani can provide the perfect backdrop for some very creative embellishment. Tag me so I can see how you fare!
