WARDROBE STAPLES FOR ETHNIC WEAR


Ethnic wear has always lured me time and again, from the summery colorful kurta & patiala to boho chic long skirts, from the oh-so-hyped anarkali to the saree in rich vibrant colors. They bring a fresh change to usual western wear. I guess everyone enjoys varying their style from chic uptown girl to a desi belle on weekly basis. The eternal question which comes back again is how to create a basic wardrobe for ethnic wear.
But before I brief you on the wardrobe staples for ethnic wear fashion, these tiny questions might be in your head. So read on.

Why – Because it’s a fresh twist from the same old fashion
When – Wear it to Work | Evening out | Festivals | Weddings

1) Kurta The prime ingredient of any ethnic wear fashion fix is a colorful Kurta. You can buy different kinds of Kurtas depending on the following to create a big collection.

Style Tip – The first buys have to be white, cream, black & maroon Kurtas. Then you can keep adding different colors & styles. Always prefer solid colors to prints as they give you more permutations. Quirky prints are a rage this season. White is a must have, ladies. Grab it in all possible fabrics – cotton, linen and silks. They are the best investment ever.

2) Skirts – Long and knee-length ethnic skirts seem to be the flavor of Indian fashion industry now. It’s a middle route for those who don’t want to dress in a western outfit and look stylish. Various fashion brands have been introducing long skirts as a fashion must-have in their summer 2016 range.

Style Tip –  Start with Indigo Blue, maroon, mustard yellow, pinks & greens and then build around them. Long skirts are typically available in Indian textiles with natural vegetable dyes and with a certain color palette. They come in soft fabrics, crinkled fabrics, silk & satin as well. Choose the fabric according to the occasion you plan to wear it for. Cottons for regular wear & silks for occasional wear.

3) Salwar Suit – Now that the separates are sorted, we can move on to buy a few classic salwar suit sets. They come in handy when you have to attend a friend’s engagement or a religious ceremony or a Diwali party.

Style Tip – Pick up fabrics according to occasions. Select a style that suits your body type as well. For instance – Anarkali is a big no for heavy busted women, Straight Kurtas are a No for Pear-shaped women. Steer clear of too much detailing.

Leggings are versatile. Black & white are must-haves. Make sure you have some basic colors that go well with your kurta collection.

Style tip – As the Fashion Basics buying rule commands, start with neutrals like off-white, black, maroon & brown.
