There are a few things to be taken care of before you enter the mandap and your bride looks at you spellbound. After having sorted out the shoes, there are still a huge list of things that need to be taken care of.

Pagri and Dupatta:

A sherwani without an turban drape is obviously incomplete. The Pagri adds weightage and personality, and of course gives the groom a prince kind of appearance. If you have decided to team up your sherwani with a pagri and a dupatta, hold it. There might be a lot of technicalities that need to be taken care of.

The dupatta usually gives a look of flare. It is advised that the groom chooses a beige sherwani, teams it up with a dark golden or ochre shade of dupatta (no sequins please, only stitch work) and combines it with the same ochre shade of pagri.
This is the classic maharaja style and the three element look will not be smashed bad. You could team this up with a decorative sergei, preferably a gem, and you are good to go.

Just the Pagri:

If you want to omit the dupatta because the three style is too much for you, simply go black and red. Wear a black sherwani with minimal golden designs only in the neck and collar, and wear a bright silk pagri, with a long part of the garment flowing out, covering one of your shoulders. This look is ravishing, and is not complicated at all.

Pagri and jewelry:

This is an interesting combination and should be tried with a dark olive green or sea green sherwani, a white pagri, and white pearls neatly draped on the neck. This effect can be mesmerizing to behold.

Just plain Jazz:

If you are in no mood to drape yourself with so many layers, go simple. Try a royal sherwani, with stitch and sequin work, pierce your ear to accommodate a stud or two if you please, wear tiny diamond or stone studs, pair this with a nice pair of shoes, and you are the millennial groom.
