Do you agree that nothing flatters the Indian silhouette better than ethnic wear? Wondering how to style your ethnic clothes? Well, you have arrived at the right place! Here are some tips to style the ethnic stuff lying in your wardrobe.
1) Brighten up your look with Zari
Zari work completes the look of any outfit meant for the festive season. Right from sarees, lehengas to dupattas, all look great with zari work. So, if you have a plain kurta and churidar, you can brighten up the whole look by pairing it with a heavy zari work dupatta. You can also go a step ahead and get your plain silk saree or kurta embroidered with a golden thread and you have an outfit ready for weddings and festivals.
2) Go Palazzo
Taller girls can go in for long kurta and flared palazzos. They are much in vogue these days. Super comfy and ethnic, it is the best kind of fusion wear for Indian women. You can choose the ones with kalamkari or bright borders. Your plain palazzos can be jazzed up with an intricately embroidered border. Just stick it on the bottom of your palazzo with fabric glue! It won’t take much of your time.
3) Jacket up!
Ethnic jackets are trending these days. You can wear them with your kurta and churidar in place of a dupatta or stole. Koti jackets can be teamed up with almost anything and will make you stand out in the crowd. You can mix and match your koti with different outfits.
4) Embellish yourself
When it comes to ethnic wear, you can’t leave jewellery behind. Though necklace and bangles are normal, you can always experiment with more traditional accessories during festivals and weddings. Naths or traditional nose rings look super awesome. You should also give maang tikkas a try as they will give you a regal look. However, don’t go over the top with them. If you are wearing the nath, skip the maang tikka and vice-versa. However, this rule applies to those who are attending weddings and not the bride 😉
5) Match your footwear
Ethnic wear calls for jutis! You can go in for plain or embellished ones. Here’s a deal, if your outfit has a lot of heavy work, go light on your feet with a plain juti. If your look happens to be simple you can always enhance it with a juti with heavy work and bright embroidery.
Hope you will have fun dressing up with the help of the above ethnic styling tips.
