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.
