A modern outlook towards life and deep respect for the traditions. This is the perfect definition of a 21st-century woman in our country. She knows how to perfectly play every role in her life, from being a homemaker to a lady boss at work. The perfect mix of a contemporary thought process and strong traditional values make her what she is – confident, bold and charismatic.
This elegance of the modern Indian woman is reflected in what she wears every day. Be it a well-fitted pantsuit or a silk saree, she has what it takes to carry every attire with utmost perfection. When you talk about ethnic Indian wear, it has such a distinct charm of its own. Although, women throughout the country love it as much as we do, wearing traditional clothes to work is something not everyone is sure about. Here are a few simple ways, following which you can make ethnic wear trendier than the usual office wardrobe of yours.
Keep your kurti collection up to date
From chic solid coloured kurtis to prints, there’s so much to choose from, when talk about kurtis for work. Not only the colours and patterns, but they come in all styles, shapes and sizes, giving you a multitude of options. What more? You can wear a kurta above your trousers, jeans, leggings, churidars or even long skirts. Add as many kurtis as you want to your wardrobe, and the compliments will follow you at work every day. Don’t miss out on a pair of kolhapuris to complete the Indian look.
Saree – the ultimate game changer
Sarees have a timeless charm that can never fade away. Doesn’t matter how many dresses and formal suits you own, a simple saree can take your style quotient notches higher like nothing else can. When it’s about wearing saree to your workplace, a cotton saree is the ultimate pick. Comfortable, classy and never out of style, it would become your favourite work attire in almost no time. If you can’t decide on the perfect saree, nothing to worry about. Just look into your mother’s wardrobe and we’re sure that you will find options you would have never thought about.
Don’t underestimate a dupatta
A dupatta might sound like a simple piece of clothing, but what it does to your look is no less than a magic. You can pair a plain dupatta with a printed attire and vice versa. Silk, cotton, georgette, chiffon and more, there are so many fabrics for you to choose from. Not only kurtis, but a dupatta can be worn with a long skirt as well as a simple T-shirt too. You just need the right colours and prints to mix and match in order to keep things minimal yet super stylish at work.
Now that you know that those ethnic clothes you ignored can be the best office wear, start putting them together. Don’t forget your favourite oxidized silver jewellery, your favourite lipstick and a little bindi to go with the traditional office attire. After all, ethnic is the new contemporary!
