Like the country itself, Indian fashion has come a long way. The simple ethnic wear for women like the saree and salwar kameez went through endless transformations to suit the modern woman. The traditional dress for women assumed a chicer urban look with sharper silhouettes and trending designs. And yet, they have undertones of the convention in fabrics and colours that have always defined the Indian tradition.
As we celebrate the ultimate Indian woman on the occasion of International Women’s Day, let’s take a look at how ethnic fashion continues to define their individuality.
Make a statement with a kurti
A simple, basic kurti can become your go-to outfit for the day. Pair a cotton kurti with palazzo or straight pants in a contrasting colour and you can define ‘class’. This black solid kurti with white palazzo pants work perfectly for your work or day out. The red floral-print yoke adds a touch of colour to the black and white ensemble.
Keep it easy with the asymmetrical Kurti Suit
Subtle and elegant, this layered, flowing kurti suit is just about right for the season. The beige and ivory shade makes it apt for day wear and enhances your feminine vibes. The little embroidery details give an edge to the overall silhouette.
Slay it with a saree
Traditional sarees are quintessential elements of an Indian woman’s fashion wardrobe. Choose from designer sarees or a classic cotton saree in pastel shades. Like this grey and beige handloom saree with floral embroidery speaks sophistication in every pleat.
Go basic with a Salwar Kameez
Yet another wardrobe essential of the Indian woman, a well-fitting salwar kameez never goes wrong in bringing out the best in you! Try this blue embroidered piece with a coordinated dupatta and you can make a statement.
Find your take on tunics
A fusion piece by definition, tunics are versatile. The vegetable dye print maintains the traditional touch while the shirt-like silhouette makes it trendy.
This Women’s Day, flaunt the modern woman in you without compromising on your traditional sensibility.
