THE STYLE COCKTAIL|A DELICIOUS MIX OF BRANDED AND THRIFT.

Ethnic Wear Buying Guide



Arent we blessed to have such rich and royal culture which reflects in our Indian ethnic wear?
Admit it or not, we all love those elegant, sensuous sarees and the flamboyant anarkalis.
And ladies, there is so much to choose from, ain’t there?
The options that are available in ethnic wear, and oh boy there are so many, might leave you confused as to what to pick! The Indian online shopping scene has variety of websites for ethnic wear; Myntra, Jabong, Flipkart and FashionandYou are few of my favourite ones.

Here’s a little guide on what to get in ethnic wear according to occasions and where to get it.

Casual Look:
Colors and fabrics matter a lot when it comes to Indian ethnic apparels.
When your priority is comfort and ease go for light weight cotton kurtis and leggings in lycra, woolen or cotton. Opt for fresh pastel hues for the day time and you can go for deeper shades of emerald, magenta or purple for the evenings.
A-line straight cut kurtis work for almost all body types. If you have well toned arms those spaghetti kurtis are quite cutesy!
Myntra houses some super chic casual kurtis. Receive discounts while shopping at Myntra here.

Office Calling:
If you are the one who loves to embrace ethnic wear for your work attire too, then you can’t go wrong with straight cut or a-line khaadi kurtis. Plain silk ones or cotton works too. The high necklines and stiff collar patterns are something you should consider for a more serious look.  Also those Nehru jackets and quilt jackets makes a great formal statement. I love wearing these jackets.
Neutral tones are in this season and they sure will rock the cubicles and conference rooms! Pair these up with a classic tan bag and a formal watch, you are good to go!
FabIndia has some amazing collection that fits perfectly for your formal needs. They keep it simple but certainly chic and house great quality fabrics too.

Party Twist:
Stand out at parties by picking something in unusual colors and print. Everybody wears a purple-pink or green-yellow combination, go for something different.
Go for all black with a statement duppatta and stunning earrings. Pick up dresses in satin or georgette for the smooth and breezy appeal.
Also the modern cocktail sarees work wonders on almost anybody!
A beautiful printed saree with a gold backless blouse is sure to turn heads. The key here is neither to look too decked up nor too under dressed. Find your balance.
And if that gets difficult, follow the age old rule; take off one piece of accessory before leaving the house.
Don’t be afraid to experiment, shop for these exotic options at Mirraw.

Wedding Belles:
Fashion revolves around seasons and India is blessed with an additional one, the wedding season! No? Here’s your chance to go all out, of course without looking like a Christmas tree. Choose those bright colors like fuchsia, lime green, cobalt blue etc which go amazingly well with the Indian skin tone.
Lehengas and Sarees are the in-thing for the wedding season. The studded patterns and zardosi are quite the stunners when it comes to creating bling. Floor length anarkalis look mesmerizing on the tall frames, now-a-days you will find a lot of modern touch to these anarkalis in the form of halter necklines, a gown appeal or even quirky prints. So if you are one of those who aren’t afraid to try something new, you should definitely go for this kind of ethinc wear with modern twist! Weddings are the time to dress up without feeling guilty!

Also, a tip from me would be that, ladies remember to mix it up, sometimes go for the afghanis instead of usual chuddidars, go for a sleek ethnic long jacket to pair it up with your everyday denims, a colourful duppatta with your casual tee. Mix and match too.
Another add-on to remember is that the online shopping space is so much fun and economic because of so many discounts and offers that are always available. Ethnic wear in India is all about heavy work and fancy fabrics and can be a little heavy on your pockets. So I always make sure that I find some great discounts or offers before blindly ordering things.
Have been through lot of coupon websites and would recommend PriceBurp.com to you folks. Almost all ethnic wear websites are listed here.

Happy Shopping. :)
