Being Indians ethnics have always found a place for themselves inside our closets. Unlike dresses or denim, ethnics are more often than not blamed for being monotonous. It’s always a saree, a salwar or a lehenga-choli which after a certain point, starts getting boring. But, what if we say not anymore? What if we tell you that you can wear your much-loved sarees and kurtas but in a very unconventional way? Yes, today we bring to you 5 Indo-western ways in which you can add a much-needed western twist to your ethnic wear so that you stand out in the crowd like you always wanted. So without further ado let’s get to the list.
Indo-western ways to wear ethnics:
1. Kurta paired with Jeans
Probably one of the most popular ways to pair up western clothing with Indian is this one. Choose a floral or front opening slit kurta and a pair of skinny jeans or ripped ones, experiment away. Don’t forget to wear a pair of heel-length boots or even high heels to take it up a notch. Sneakers are also a wonderful choice to go with.
2. Jacket with a Saree
Who said sarees are boring? Well not if you can wear it with a denim jacket and a pair of long earrings. Add on a stylish pair of sunglasses if you are in a mood to show some swag.
3. Short Tops with Dhoti Pants
A crop top/tunic paired with dhoti style pants is the perfect combination of west meets India. Braided hair with a pair of juttis or stilettoes would definitely make you look like a million-dollar. Put on a shrug if you are feeling too adventurous. A nice piece of chunky silver jewellery can just be the icing on the cake.
4. Saree-Pants combo
Although this indo-western style came into popularity much later, it has managed to gain momentum like no other. A cotton saree with ripped or skinny jeans and a belt will raise up the temperatures like anything. The look is stylish, classy at the same time very festive. You can wrap the pallu around your neck or even pull off a Bollywood style drape if you are up for it.
5. Lehenga and Shirts
Pick a nice bright coloured brocade or silk lehenga with doris, match it up with a long sleeve or elbow sleeve shirt of a lighter colour, put on a long neckpiece, go with a messy bun. There you go all dolled up for a celebration.
With Diwali and Karwa-Chauth just around the corner, it’s time for you to try these looks for yourself. So what are you waiting for? Get dressed up!
