When it comes to selecting appropriate outfits for work, we often get confused between choosing either head to toe traditional look or a corporate friendly look that doesn’t get boring, right? While we love wearing pants, dresses and even denims to work, you must also admit that ethnic wear has its own charm and spares no one.
Those formal shirts and pencil cut pants do look smart but after a few days give a very conventional feel and that’s where you start thinking that I must add style and colour to my work wardrobe, right?
That is why we suggest going completely ethnic by adding different Indian dresses to your wardrobe this season!
Simple Ways To Style Your Traditional Indian Wear:
Although sarees have been pretty much the epitome of formal wear for any Indian women, they’re mostly restricted to special events. However, a well-draped simple embroidery saree is perhaps one of the most graceful formal wear ever. Pair it with an elegant blouse and hairdo and minimal makeup and you are all set to make a statement at work. Give your wardrobe an upgrade with some designer sarees in different colours and designs and grab compliments from your colleagues.
The Bottom Reversal
Salwars, churidars and patialas are highly mainstream. In a difficult working environment where you need to be agile but comfortable, pair of palazzos or cigarette pants are one of the best pieces of clothing. Pair it with long kurta and give your whole ensemble a sophisticated and elegant touch. Block printed or kalamkari palazzos teamed with basic colour kurti is quite a rage these days.
A-Line or Straight Cut Kurtas
Save your Anarkali suits for jazzy events. Straight pant suit have formal written all over them. Team them up with a pair of cigarette pants and wedges or knitted heels and you are all set a perfect office attire.
Nothing speaks power dressing more loudly like Mandarin collars. Super smart and sophisticated. Go for long kurta with high collars and keep your look simple with a pair of small earrings.
Stoles or Scarves
Many of you might be used to wearing a blazer or jacket on top of formal western attire. A great way to get an ethnic look is by substituting it with a dupatta or stole. You can style it in a number of ways depending on what you are wearing. This totally redefines your outfit.
Accessorize your look with a perfect pair of jhumkas and embroidered clutch bag as it goes with everything and anything, be it an elegant saree or a casual salwar kameez. Makeup or no makeup is up to you but do add little bindi and your desi diva look is all complete!
