There are no limits when it comes to fashion. While women have adopted masculine clothing over the years, men are also slowly embracing clothing labeled “women only.” In one such instance of gender stereotype breaking, two men were seen sporting sarees on their way to their Indian friend’s wedding in Chicago.
Paraagonfilms, Chicago wedding videographers, shared the video on their Instagram handle, writing, “Just a typical wedding morning with the groom’s two best men walking down Michigan Ave in saris.”

The video shows a woman helping the boys wear the saree as they get ready for their friend’s wedding. The duo are then seen gracefully walking down Michigan Avenue in Chicago to attend the wedding dressed in colorful sarees. They even finished off the look by adding bindis on their foreheads. As soon as their Indian friends – the bride and groom – saw their unusual clothes, they burst out laughing. The video ended with the trio hugging and smiling.
The clip has so far garnered over 28,000 likes and over 150 comments. Social media users couldn’t get over how adorable the whole gesture was. The law also opened up social media discussion for breaking stereotypes around gendered clothing. Many called it the best surprise, while others praised both men for wearing ethnic outfits and appreciating their friend’s culture.
One user wrote: “That is so healthy. Absolutely adorable.” Another commented, “The guys are getting more and more creative!!! I love it!!!” A third commented, “White men look beautiful in everything lol!!! They look so graceful with the beautiful pleats of sarees. This is so healthy.”
Earlier, Pushpak Sen, a youth from West Bengal, went viral on social media when he was caught strolling around Milan wearing a saree.
