We all love our dresses. Indian outfits hold a special place in every Indian girl’s wardrobe. Every girl has tried on her mom‘s saree or dupatta while playing dress-up at some point in her childhood. It is the enigma of Indian wear and just how beautiful these outfits make a girl look. Also, we have so many occasions here where we get a chance to flaunt our Indian outfits, be it a simple puja at home, or a wedding, or festivals or just on an everyday basis! Whether it’s a saree, lehenga or a shalwar suit, all look beautiful on Indian women. But just like everything else, one needs to be careful while wearing and buying Indian wear too.
There are a few things that should be kept in mind because these can make or break your look.
1-Too many embellishments — Indian wear does not mean you have to always go for heavily embroidered pieces! Avoid any kinds of bling if you are wearing ethnic outfits during the day or to work/ college. Go for simple printed or solid pieces in bright and soothing colors. Even when attending a wedding try to steer clear of fabrics with too much stonework. Go for elegant and classy embroidered fabrics.
2-Fitting clothes— No matter what do not commit this cardinal sin of fashion even when you are wearing Indian wear. Make sure that you buy the correct size while shopping for Indian wear. The clothes should neither be too tight nor too loose if you want to look your best! Fitting is very crucial when it comes to Indian outfits.
3-Fabric Matters —The choice of fabric matters a lot when it comes to Indian wear. Heavy fabrics like brocade or silk are more suitable for winters while chiffon and linen for summers. The wrong choice of fabrics can lead to extreme discomfort.
4–The wrong footwear—Do not forget your feet while you are planning your look with Indian outfits. Make sure to choose footwear that goes well with ethnic outfits. Go for jutis , kolhapuris, nude pumps or gold / silver heels when wearing ethnic outfits. You cannot wear sports shoes with a salwar kurta .
5–Over Accessorizing— If your outfit is heavy embroidery and sequins and you wear more jewelry, it will just look overdone. Never make the mistake of over accessorizing your Indian outfits. Instead focus on one piece at a time .Either go for a statement necklace or statement earrings, never both together unless it is your wedding day.
