Dara Khosrowshahi has cracked the code to styling a Nehru jacket
Uber CEO Dara Khosrowshahi seemed to be in a festive mood earlier this month. The CEO, who was in the country to connect with employees, showed off his effortless ‘desi’ style with a number of chic sleeveless Nehru Jackets.

East Meets West

While visiting the company’s Bengaluru office, Khosrowshahi struck the perfect balance between formal and festive with a sleeveless red raw silk Nehru jacket paired with a black long-sleeved shirt with a mandarin collar. He finished the ensemble with dark blue denim jeans, brown loafers and a blue watch.

In Hyderabad, he stepped up his style with an olive green Nehru jacket adorned with a golden print and even donned a golden shawl for added flair.



While meeting TRS working president KT Rama Rao later that day, Khosrowshahi opted for a stylish peach Nehru jacket that made a statement all on its own.


Wearing a Nehru jacket this Diwali? Take a few cues from the Uber top boss to nail this style.

Play with solid colours

Nehru jackets are incredibly versatile so don’t be afraid to get them in a variety of colours and prints like pink, green or even teal. Pair them with shirts in contrasting hues, like Khosrowshahi did with the red jacket set against a black shirt, for a cleaner, sharper look.

Switch it up with a pair of denims

Denim jeans in dark colours like navy or black work just as well as regular pants and offer a nice Indo-western look when paired with a Nehru vest in a bold colour or fashionable print. Keep your shirt and accessories subtle to avoid too many colours clashing.
