Are you shying away from ethnic wear because you think the fashion styles are not ‘cool’ enough?
Are your kurtas and churidars relegated to a dark corner of your closet, losing preference to new fashion dresses? Are you this close to giving away your ethnic outfits to make room for in-fashion tops? Then read on.
Fashion is constantly evolving and giving us so many different ideas to experiment with. Gone are the days when wearing ethnic outfits meant putting on a well-cut, coordinated salwar kameez. We’ve even come beyond the days of creating ‘fusion’ looks by pairing kurtas with jeans. There are so many different fashion trends you can set by tweaking your ethnic clothes and giving them a dose of contemporary style.
Follow these DIY fashion tips to discover how trendy ‘ethnic fashion styles’ can really be:
Wear Ethnic Prints On Western Silhouettes
There’s something quite beautiful about ethic patterns. Whether they are intricately embroidered, block printed, or even rendered digitally on fabric, ethnic designs add a touch of elegance to your trendy clothes. Keep that elegance intact as you give your ethnic look a revamp by simply switching silhouettes. Instead of the usual churidar suit, sport ethnic prints on unconventional pieces like t-shirts or dresses and be the perpetrator of some hot fashion trends.
Create Unusual Pairings
Give your traditional kurta a new lease of life by separating it from its perennial partner, the churidar (or salwar, or patiyala, or… you get the drift). You can create some amazing fusion fashion styles by mixing and matching your kurta with different bottoms. Wear it with a pair of culottes or a maxi skirt for a fashion newsworthy look. The best part about this styling tip is that it works both ways! You can pair your salwars or churidars with western tops or mini dresses for a funky look.
Add Statement Accessories
Aren’t accessories simply the best thing ever? A piece here and another there can act like magic and completely transform your ensemble. You can use accessories to give your fusion indo-western look a high-fashion boost. They will tie the look together and give it a sense of coherence. You can look through fashion accessory blogs for some inspiration. So, go ahead, wear a kurti over a flowing skirt and accessorize with metallic shoes, shimmery jhumkis, an eye-catching belt, or all three!
Style Your Pieces With A Twist
Ethnic pieces by themselves can be quite stunning. All you need to do is, tweak the way you wear them & create chic fashion styles. Roll up the sleeves of your kurta and knot it at the waist for a quick and easy boho look. You can also style your lovely kurtas as new fashion dresses. Simply wear them sans bottoms and throw on a pair of brogues to show people how to look smart casually. If your kurtas have long slits at the sides, a pair of denim shorts underneath creates a cute fusion look.
