If you find the thought of wearing pumps, heels and wedges with ethnic Indian wear too cumbersome, chances are you are right. Most Indian women prefer their flats and ballerinas, mojaris and kolhapuris to pair with ethnic ensembles, which completes the desi look for sure. And if you do not know how to pair them well, here is what we would like to show you – five fab styling combos with flat footwear!
1. Elegant oxfords for casual day outings
With the amount of running and movement one has to do everyday, your feet takes a beating and the sore toes cry for mercy. Instead of wearing heels for the feel or pointed shoes to work on a Friday, you could team up a pair of chic oxfords in self-colors or prints with short kurtis and loose dress pants for the bottom. The hip length kurti should be ethnically embroidered, which balances the overall look! Complete the look with a statement bag in neutral tones, in contrast to the color of the oxfords worn, keeping the makeup minimal with a healthily flushed pair of cheeks and dark eyes. (BUY HERE)
2. Greek arty flats for the special events
For a very boho chic touch to the ethnic day at work or for special traditional events, you could now have your feet beautifully adorned. Wear your mirror worked or block printed lehenga skirts with a crisp self-colored top, and complete the look with a pair of arty flats for the feet. Complete the look with sultry eye makeup and pink lips, wavy bohemian hairdo’s and a jhola or an ethnically embroidered clutch in hand for company. (BUY HERE)
3. Mojaris for the summer-friendly chic look
Chic, simple, stylish and very carefree, ethnically designed and embroidered mojaris for the feet can bring in a pop of color when needed to add pizzazz and style to the gracious ethnic wear on you. Pair up silk kurtis with ankle length palazzo pants, and a pair of embroidered mojaris to complete the look.

When you pair them with chic embroidered or self-colored and styled thongs for the feet; the duo makes for a deadly combination, leading all eyes to you. Keep the look quite summerish with a healthy blush on the cheeks and the hair falling loose over the shoulders, with a bag in neutral tones in hand and earrings in plain gold or silver to balance the aura as well.
