Trendy ethnicwear will always be in demand, says Aashita Gupta.
Heavy anarkali sets, bridal anarkali suits, long anarkali suits, designer lehenga, salwar kameez --- some trendy ethnicwear is an eternal must-have for every Indian woman. Take a look at some elegant indutva (Indian ethnicwear) essentials for women today.
There is ethnicwear and then, there is ethnicwear. Yet, the must-haves this season include:
1. Elegant churidar suit
Elegance is eternal. A churidar set in not-so-bright colours would add the right tone. If bling is not your style, pick up something that adds confidence and spells composure. So, if you don't have one, opt for a stylish set even if you have bridal anarkali suits.
2. Comfy pants/palazzos
We vote it the best thing designers have ever introduced for us. Indutvas look high on class and comfort when you combine comfort with class. So, stock up on a palazzo-kameez combination and relax!
3. Mix of Indo-Western
Women have an eye for everything pretty and preppy. So, they just cannot miss the Indo-Western magic. Pick up a glamorous suit that can be an eclectic mix of Indian wear with some Occidental inspiration.
4. Pretty in patiala
If you thought that patiala suits were pass, think again. This is one eternal outfit that shows no sign of going out of fashion. Stock up on one chic patiala outfit and keep it as the desi slayer for occasions that deserve the eternal touch.
5. Gorgeous anarkali
Anarkalis have taken the Indian ethnic fashion scene by storm. They are empowering and enchanting, even regal. So, clear some space in your wardrobe for a heavy anarkali suit that will stand you in great stead at weddings or on that special occasion.
6. Engaging Indian gown
This one is among the latest additions to the classy cupboard and may soon become irreplaceable even for those who love the anarkali suit. Designer Indian gowns are another quick-fix for parties or weddings.
That's the cheat sheet when you go shopping for a wardrobe revamp.
