Brighten the canvas of celebration with these 5 leading ethnic trends.
One colour that we all are unanimously going gaga over is indigo! Traditional block printers from Jaipur have spun out a wide range of indigo fabrics, and I so wish my wardrobe had room for them all. Be it an indigo saree, a classy salwaar-kameez set, or even a dupatta – the colour is a stunner everywhere. If you’re looking for a stylish yet subtle outfit for a festive get-together, go for this print without thinking twice! Accessorise it with oxidised jewellery or sober silvers, and you’re sure to grab all the eye-balls.
Mix & Match With Kalamkari
When it comes to ethnic attires, this block-print textile from southern India has totally won our hearts. This print has captivating motifs of temples, scrolls, florals, mythological scenes, and what not! With an exemplary ethnic vibe to it, this print can be spotted on everything from a saree to a palazzo. Here’s a tip from the pros- avoid large Kalamkari prints if you’re relatively petite.
Florals – A Big Yes!
Another winner when it comes to donning a subtle yet sophisticated ethnic attire is floral! Try georgette, satin or crepe sarees with rosette motifs, or just let a bright floral dupatta spruce up your ethnic salwaar-kameez. Believe me, this is one trend that is here to stay, and it’s urging us all to bloom into it! Anushka Sharma set the ball rolling for this trend with her blush-toned lehenga with delicate floral embroidery, and ever since, I’ve been wanting to get my hands on one. What better time for a good deed than the festive season!
Rock The Good Old Saree
If there’s one attire that exudes impeccable grace at all times, it’s a saree! This evergreen drape is bound to boost your confidence and of course, it looks surreal. What’s more? There’s an abundance of patterns and styles to choose from. The saree is the gold standard technique to add the necessary oomph to your persona.
Yeah, you heard that right. This trend made it big in the ‘70s and it’s back to rock and roll again. After tassel earrings and footwear, fringes are all set to work wonders in traditional outfits, and we are not complaining! People are flaunting fringed blouses, and it’s the perfect blend of style and comfort. What’s not to like about bold and airy sleeves that are oh-so-flattering!
