Six essentials to complete your ethnic wardrobe
It is no secret that there are certain things that every woman’s wardrobe must have, and an ethnic wardrobe, though easy to build, could be a little intimidating. Luckily, you just need a few items to make sure you shine in your ethnic looks and having a few of these items on hand can save you from a fashion faux-pas when it comes to last minute events. If you want to build a solid ethnic wardrobe, here’s a list of six essentials to get you started on the right path.
It is undeniable that a saree is a woman’s sexiest asset. Sarees are a versatile wear when it comes to stocking an ethnic wardrobe. It doesn’t matter what occasion you’re dressing up for because a saree can be worn to any event. Choose bold colors for a sultry, seductive look and lighter colors for a fresh, young look.
Now, whether you’re looking to stock up on kurtis for a traditional affair, or a professional setting, Indo-Western kurtis don’t disappoint. These kurtis transcend the traditional look, while providing a classy and edgy look when paired with leggings. Opt for kurtis in neutral shades so you can mix and match, or opt for digital print kurtis since they are quite the rage these days. Long, knee-length kurtis are extremely elegant when paired with leggings.
Gone are the days of ill-fitting churidars as leggings are here to stay. Leggings tend to be less clunky and complete the Indo-Western attire when paired with kurtis. It’s best to get one legging in every color as you never know when the need may arise.
No look is complete without apt footwear and owning a pair of stylish footwear which will put you out of your footwear misery. They are a wonderful addition to an ethnic wardrobe. They are also a good option for events that include a lot of dancing since these are flat and won’t hinder you from showing off your moves!
What good is an ethnic wardrobe without a fabulous clutch or potli bag? Where else are you going to carry essentials like a phone, tissues and your lipstick for a touch-up? Investing in a good Potli bag will not only take care of your belongings but also add an ‘oomph’ factor to your ethnic wardrobe.
No ethnic wardrobe is complete without versatile jewellery to go with your beautiful outfits. Every woman should have a versatile set of jewelry that includes earrings, a necklace or choker and rings. By adding head jewelry, such as a maang tikka or a damini or passa, you will only add accolades to your look. If you want some light accessories, diamond-studded hair clips are all the rage these days!
