Salwar kameez is one of the most common outfit worn by the Indian woman. But it’s not that easy to pull off a salwar kameez perfectly. You need to have a perfect fitted kurta paired with the best bottom and a matching dupatta. For those girls who really want to nail the look in salwar kameez, here are few tips for them about the 8 things to NOT DO when wear a salwar kameez.
Do Not Choose Heavy Fabrics
Stiff and heavy fabrics like brocade, linen and cotton usually makes you look heavy. These fabric don’t flow with the body and thus adds extra volume to your figure. If you are sleek then it’s fine but if you are a bit on the heavier side then avoid these fabrics salwar kameez. You can pick flowy fabrics for your salwar kameez like crepe, chiffon, georgette etc.
Do Not Wear Long Kurta with Patiala
A long kurta with patiala salwar is a strict no-no!! The main characteristic of a Patiala salawar is its loose multiple pleats and if you wear a long kurta along with it then the entire highlight will be ruined. When you wear a Patiala suit make sure to choose a kurta that is a little above your knee.
Do Not Over Accessorize
Accessories definitely looks good with Indian outfits like salwar kameez but over doing it is not a very great idea. The thought is quite simple if your salwar kameez is quite heavy with lots of embroidery then always go for minimal accessories. If you are wearing a full sleeves kurta having lots of embroidery then clearly it’s not a good ideas to wear bangles as it won’t look good. Similarly if you are wearing a salwar kameez having high neckline embroidery then avoid wearing necklace.
Don’t get too matchy-matchy
Most of the women feel like everything that they wear should be matching-matching. Like if you are wearing a red kameeez then the dupatta also needs to be red, the jhumkis also should be red, bangles and everything should be red. But that’s not really the case anymore, instead you can go for contrast color options. Like if you are wearing a red kurta then you can pair an orange or pink colour dupatta along with it.
Do not wear ill-fitted kurta
Perfect fit is the key for Indian outfits and you can’t really take risk with the fits. Make sure that whatever kurta you are wearing has perfectly stitched sleeves, arm holes, waist, back, front and neckline. An ill fitted kurta can ruin your entire Indian look.
Choosing Wrong Footwear
Different type of salwar kameez look good with different types of footwear. Like Patiala salwar looks good with juttis, even anarkalis look good with juttis but then it doesn’t mean that you can’t pair anarkalis with anything else. Pumps also look good with anarkalis and straight kurta. Make sure you pick high heels only if you are very confident about walking in heels.
