No matter, how much we love our rugged denim and party wear dresses; we’re still desi belles at heart, who just loves dressing up in traditional attire! Irrespective of what the fashion trend is, ethnic wear is evergreen. From an asymmetrical kurta to a heavy Anarkali, there’s a certain effortless elegance that comes with Indian wear.
A few years back, there weren’t a whole lot of choices available to get that perfect ethnic look. But as the traditional fashion just got trendier, the world is your oyster! Asymmetrical tunics, crop tops, capes, shararas, palazzos, cigarette pants, dhotis, jackets, drapes – the silhouettes are endless! So, whatever your shape and preference, we take you through some must-have fusion look in which you can attend a string of traditional events.
- The Festive Anarkali
No ethnic closet can ever be complete without a heavy embroidered Anarkali! It is one Indian outfit that can be worn for any occasion like a Diwali party or a wedding. We all love them for their flattering fit and the power to make us feel oh-so-gorgeous, making it one of the must buy dresses for an Indian wedding.
- The Classic Banarasi Saree
Sarees have been making us look good from ages. And having a Banarasi saree in your closet can be your savior for those sudden plans like a cousin’s wedding or Diwali office party. Banarasi fabric has a princess-like charm that’s difficult to ignore and so you must also invest in one. Complement your Banarasi with an alluring back-revealing blouse and put yourself right under the spotlight.
- Multi-Tasking Crop tops and skirts
Forget pencil skirts this season and buy yourself a pair of a crop top and a beautiful long ethnic skirt. And with such a nice combination, the multi-tasking fashion is officially here! These are the perfect party wear for girls attending a small function.
- Asymmetrical Kurtas
Just like capes seamlessly took on an Indian look, asymmetrical designs moved from dresses to tunics. If you detest Anarkalis and are bored of your straight-cut suits, an asymmetrical kurta with a front cut can be a great way to liven up your closet.
- Trendy Capes
Capes are the hottest new trend on the block. They were brought into the spotlight as a perfect dress for Indian wedding when Shahid Kapoor’s bride, Mira Rajput, wore it for their Delhi Reception party. You can pair a cape with lehenga, dhoti pant, churidar, palazzo and even a gown.
- Dhoti Pants
The dhoti is back in style, giving wedding guests some fantastic designs to pick from. It may sound like a vague term, but it’s actually a nice option for anyone looking for an interesting piece to add to their wedding wear closet.
- Kurtas with Palazzos
Sick of pairing your favorite kurta with cliche churidars and salwars? Experiment with palazzos, one of the most comfortable pieces of clothing. Palazzos are the new member of the family of ethnic wear and can be paired with tops, crop tops, tees, etc.
- Ethnic Jackets
Fitted, flowing, short, long, open, closed – doesn’t matter which style of jacket you choose, they are all stylish. It is one style that can be flaunted for the romantic post-wedding date, during intermediate wedding events, as well as for the grand family dinner. Pair it with a chic cigarette pant or a lehenga for a traditional yet modern look.
Now, when you know what traditional outfits to have in your closet, it’s time to log in to an online fashion store and start shopping for the perfect party wear available for girls out there.
