The Must-Have Ethnic Pieces!

Ethnic wear has always lured me towards it time and again, from the summery colorful kurta & patiala to boho chic long skirts , from the oh-so-hyped anarkali to the sarees in rich vibrant colors. They bring a fresh change to the usual western wear dressing. In my attempt to become a desi belle, it’s imperative for me to know what’s in my wardrobe. The eternal question comes back again is how do I create a basic wardrobe for ethnic wear.

But before I brief you on  wardrobe staples for ethnic wear fashion , these tiny little monstrous questions might be jumping 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

How – That I will show you now & how – Tadaaaa:)

Kurta

The prime ingredient of any ethnic wear fashion fix starts with purchase of colorful Kurta. The first buy has to be white, cream, black & maroon Kurta. Then you can keep adding different colors & styles. Always prefer solid colors to prints as it gives you more permutations to style. My favorite shopping place to buy different kurta would be Cottons, FabIndia & Anokhi for the solid colors. Quirky prints can be tried at Biba & Global Desi.

Leggings

I remember how in my childhood days, we would get Churidar stitched from tailors – yes, all of you might have worn those shabby, loose from the knees or maybe extremely uncomfortable & tight fitted churidars. Since the time knit fabric came into picture life became easier for all. Leggings are a boon & savior from all of the tailoring hassles. Grab them in all the colors possible colors.

Patiala

They have so much room, I can breathe well and I can move however I want to… What more do I want? They are an alternative option to leggings.

Heavy Dupatta

A colorful dupatta increases the style quotient of any salwar suit. You can always mix and match lot of these dupatta. You could take your pick from heavily embroidered Phulkari or Kutchi work dupatta, a Bandhani or a leheriya , chanderi silk or even an ikat dupatta. Indian textiles gives you a wide array of options to select from.

Rushing to work? Here’s a quick makeup regime!

Sometimes (AKA most times) we just don’t have an extra hour in life to stand in front of the mirror, leisurely applying our makeup. In fact, most days we’re pretty short on time, and it’s why makeup tips for when you are in a rush are majorly helpful in most of our lives.  So, if you’re tired of leaving the house with smudges and blotches, here are top four makeup hacks for when you’re in a rush.

Step 1:

Wearing foundation can be time consuming instead, use BB Cream as it moisturizes your face as well as gives medium coverage.4-3

Guide to choose right type of panties for different styles.

Adriana Lima said once “Lingerie is one of the most important pieces of your wardrobe. You can have a wardrobe malfunction if you don’t choose the right thing to wear underneath!Panty is one of the important parts of the basic lingerie any woman wears. Most girls start their daily regime by changing the pair of underwear. It is the backbone of a wardrobe, along with right fitted bras.

Whereas, the wrong pair can even lead you to a wardrobe malfunction! Girls wear a variety of dresses and hence require different types of underwear for different occasions. You cannot just wear the black boy shorts with a sheer skirt or a thong under your flown floor length dress. So, what does a girl need to do? Let us help you with the basic of underwear and discuss how to wear them correctly with any dress.

Fit & Flare

skater style

If you are planning to wear styles like A-line, Skater, fit & flare or empire cuts, always go with boy shorts or hipsters ! The fair cut of the panty covers more than what the traditional brief or thong covers. This will save you from the wardrobe malfunction induced by summer breeze.

Body Hugging

bodycon

If you are all set to flaunt your curves with styles like: bodycon, sheath or shift. You should look for a foundation undergarment matching with the length of your bottoms.

You can also try nude thongs to avoid the squeezed look caused by singular thin strap. In case you do not have skin color underwear in your wardrobe, you can wear light grey underwear with white pants. Grey hipsters or hip-huggers can form a comfortable undergarment to white shorts.

indian wear

If you want to wear traditional Indian dresses like, kurtis, suits, sarees or lehngas.  The best panty styles for indian wear is probably the regular briefs or bikini style. It gives a proper shape below the underskirt or the petticoat. The bottom hence looks more firm.
