Everything You Need To Know About Mojaris And How To Style Them 

There is a distinct allure to Indian attire; it simply invokes your exquisite, somewhat-royal, and refined side, whether you are a man or a woman.

Whether you want to feel like a royal in a button-down Bandhgala on your wedding day or appreciate the flattering fit of a silk kurta for a Happy Diwali with friends and family, ethnic wear is all about making you feel good, special, and festive.

But do you know what makes the ultimate ethnic clothing look? It is the appropriate footwear! Enters the mojari.

Mojari is the rugged, robust, and no-nonsense cousin of jutti, the trendy relative. But it doesn’t mean it’s boring. Mojaris and juttis have similar beginnings as handcrafted footwear produced in South Asia; they are primarily constructed from tanned leather known as khussa. Like other celebration styles, Mojari has its beginnings in the Mughals, when it was customary for the nobles to wear magnificent shoes decorated with coloured threads, jewels, and other ornaments. They are said to have gained popularity during King Saleem Shah’s reign, so they are also referred to as Saleem Shahis.

Mojari is comparable to Jutti yet has a distinct personality. It’s a type of traditional footwear that dates back to the third and fourth centuries, and it is still a popular footwear choice for ethnic costumes in India. Mojari is a must-have item for any man’s wardrobe, and it features beautiful needlework and ethnic designs on it. All of this makes it an ideal complement to any ethnic Indian attire. Mojari is dressed to the nines for any event. Nowadays, several designs are available in stunning, eye-catching colours with sophisticated embellishments that enhance the elegance of your appearance.

How to Style and Choose Your Mojaris ( Or Any Ethnic Footwear Really)

  • When your dress is simple and neutral, opt for bright colours and strong prints in your footwear. Avoid using too much print and colour on your footwear and kurta. If your kurta is printed, stick to black, white, and brown shoes and sandals.
  • When aiming for a flamboyant footwear choice, design your outfit around the footwear rather than attempting to merge your colourful shoes into an existing loud ensemble.
  • Use your footwear to colour block your ensemble; avoid matchy footwear because your kurta and pyjama are usually the same colour, so it’s wonderful to break up the monotony with your shoes.
  • You should not wear Socks with ethnic shoes unless you wear a bandhgala or jodhpuri.
  • Always maintain one ethnic shoe design in sandals and one in shoes on hand in your festive wardrobe. Two similar types of shoes will limit your stylistic options.
