Are you heading to your workplace in the same boring shirts and pants every day? Western wear can be professional but it won’t really go down with the Indian temperament of wearing colourful clothes. If you have been yearning to transform your ethnic wear to office wear, you have landed at the right place! Here are some tips to style ethnic wear at work!
Sarees have been the best kind of formal wear for Indian women for decades now. These days it is mostly worn on special occasions, but you can wear them to the office every day too! A simple saree carried off well can be a great style statement at office! Keep the prints simple and the colours not too loud. Focus on the design of the blouse. Choose boat necks with long sleeves. The entire look looks even better with a suitable hairdo and bit of makeup.
2) Ethnic pants
You may wonder about wearing the same old patialas and salwars to work but if you need to move around a lot, palazzos would be comfortable. You can even go in for a pair of cigarette pants. They look great with kurtas and make you look sophisticated. You can pair kalamkari print palazzos with basic coloured kurtis as they are in fashion. Style your outfit with some basic jewellery and tie your hair in a braid. Voila! You are ready to rock!
3) A-line or straight cut kurtas
Ditch the anarkalis and go in for an A-line or straight cut kurta. They look very formal when worn with cigarette pants. Pair them up with wedges or kitten heels and head for the meeting!
4) Mandarin collars
Mandarin or Chinese collars make you look chic and smart. So get your saree blouses stitched with such high collars; they look professional. You can even pick kurtis of this design.
5) Go Indigo!
People are in love with Indigo dyes and prints. It is up to you whether you want to pick a saree, skirt or kurti. Even palazzos with indigo prints are trending. Whatever you opt for will enhance your look.
6) Stoles, scarves and dupattas
For a western outfit, you would most often wear a blazer or jacket. However, with ethnic wear, you can go in for dupattas, stoles and scarves. You can style them in several different ways according to what you are wearing. It will surely make you stand out.
