Prime Minister Narendra Modi, considered stylish by many, dons several hats quite literally.

From the traditional headgear of Nagaland, to the pagadi to the Assamese traditional japi, Modi has worn it all.

Here’s a look at PM Modi’s best looks:

While he was in Arunachal during the Lok Sabha elections campaigning, the prime minister wore a dumuluk, a traditional headgear of the Adi tribe.

 

PM Modi looked oh so academic and scholarly when he donned the graduation robes and headgear while he addressed students at the All India Institute of Medical Sciences convocation in October.

 

The PM also wore a Punjabi pagdi while he addressed crowds in Jagraon in Ludhiana during the national elections.
