If you’re the sort of woman who enjoys the finer things in life, your refined taste will be reflected in your wardrobe as well. We often think that ethnic wear has to be bright and flashy and can be worn only to parties. But that’s not true. We tell you how to choose smart formal pieces that you can incorporate into your casual and office wardrobe:
1) Office-friendly ethnic wear
Choose kurtas in neutral shades like white, black, beige, blue, grey, etc. with subtle detailing such as minimalist embroidery or small repeat patterns. Pair it with leggings, heels and minimal jewelry to create corporate-friendly ethnic ensembles.
2) Elegant cotton sarees
Cotton sarees are ideal for long Indian summers. Choose sarees in timeless off-white to beat the heat. Even bold embroidery looks toned down on a cotton saree. Pair it with sandals, clutch, and minimalist jewelry to achieve an effortlessly elegant look.
3) Refined palazzo sets
Palazzos carry a vacation vibe and therefore they’re a ideal addition to any wardrobe. However, if you want to give it a formal makeover, choose pieces in neutral shades like black or grey. Alternatively, opt for a casual set in blue and white – fashion’s favorite color combination.
4) Graceful kurtis
Short kurtis aren’t for college students alone. Choose pieces in neutral shades or vivid colors and balance it out with neutral leggings or trousers. Complete this versatile look with kitten heels and a handbag and no one will even miss the pencil skirt and shirt combo.
5) Tasteful mandarin collar kurtas
Mandarin collar kurtas suit almost everyone. In fact, it can easily help balance out a loud print. Pair mandarin collar kurtas with leggings or ankle length cotton pants – a combo that’s bound to attract many appreciative glances. Complete the look with hoop earrings.
