Style Tips To Follow For Traditional Indian Clothes

Dressing up for the wedding season is always fun. Nowadays, people have a wide variety of attires to choose from. Selecting the right traditional outfit for an event can be confusing too. With unique colour combinations and uncommon patterns, Indian clothes are now a blend of contemporary and traditional. Most people these days look for comfort when they want to dress traditionally. Men have a limited number of options in ethnic wear but they can add stylish elements like dupatta, mojris, accessories, etc. to enhance the look. Considering the nature of the event is very important when choosing Indian clothes. Some people tend to follow styles blindly and end up looking not so great. When you follow a particular trend, see to it that it suits you.

The outfit you choose has to be apt according to the event and must look presentable according to your body type. Every year the fashion trends witness a drastic change with several new additions in styles and patterns. Additionally, the wedding season brings with it more new colour combinations!  Usually, people prefer to wear Indian outfits for weddings and festivals but nowadays, casual ethnic attires are also worn for daily wear. Kurta pajama combos are very popular among men and women because they are comfortable and easy to style. Moreover, kurtas can be teamed up with several bottom styles which make them flexible and ideal for all occasions. Every Indian dress has a charm of its own but in order to make the right selection, it is necessary to consider factors like nature of the event, body type, time of the event, etc. Here are some on-going trends in ethnic wear.

  • Embroidered Jacket Lehenga Set

Jacket lehengas offer a blend of both contemporary and traditional. These lehengas are comfortable to wear and are also unique looking. Jacket style lehengas are ideal for wedding receptions, engagement ceremonies and cocktail parties. In this lehenga choli combo, apart from the lehenga and the choli, a long jacket is also present. If the lehenga and choli are colour coordinated, then the jacket can be of contrast shade.

  • Sequin and Thread Embroidered Sherwanis

Sherwanis are never out of style and are a must-have for men. Sherwanis are ideal for wedding occasions because they look rich and classy. Choose the colour of sherwani with care because a wrong colour combination can ruin the whole look. Indian clothes depend a lot on embellishments and embroideries, and sherwanis also fall in the same bracket. Opt for a sequin and thread embroidered sherwani. Colours like grey, midnight blue and maroon look perfect for such sherwanis. You can also choose an all black sherwani and churidar for evening events.

  • Floral Printed Saree

Attending a summer wedding definitely calls for florals. Printed sarees are very much in vogue because they look modern and are easy to carry. A floral saree can be teamed with a contrast coloured blouse to give it an edge. Complete this look with statement earrings and you are good to go. For floral sarees, choose colours like lemon yellow, pastel pink, mint blue, etc.

  • An Overlap Kurta and Churidar Set

Instead of wearing a mundane kurta pajama combo, men should try and experiment with an overlap kurta and churidar combo. This kurta pattern looks ethnic but not typical. Choose impactful colours like navy blue, magenta, maroon and lime green for this kurta style. Pair up this kurta with a mute-toned churidar. Avoid multi-colour combinations for this outfit. Make sure you choose the right colour for your Indian dress.

  • Traditional Gowns with Volume Sleeves

Traditional gowns are apt for wedding receptions and cocktail parties. Women who are bored with lehenga choli combos should try and opt for traditional gowns. Gowns these days come in a variety of styles. Instead of going for sleeveless or full-sleeves gowns, one should try wearing gowns with volume sleeves. Additionally, many gowns also come with an attached dupatta which does not need to be draped. Avoid excessive embroidery and embellishments in a gown. Also, when it comes to colours, the gown should look easy on the eyes.

Well, once you are done selecting your Indian dress, it is necessary to add a few extra elements to complete the overall look. Here are some ways in which you can enhance the look of your outfit.

  • Add a Dupatta

If your Indian dress does not already have a dupatta then it is best to add one. Adding a dupatta to Indian clothes can give the outfit a traditional vibe. Moreover, if your outfit is too simple a heavily embellished dupatta can work wonders.

  • Footwear

People generally only focus on the outfit and forget the footwear. Choosing the right footwear is very crucial when it comes to Indian clothes. For instance, if your outfit has golden toned embroidery all over then your footwear should match the tone.

  • Belt

Though it is not possible to add a belt to all outfits, you can team up a few outfits with a belt. These days belts can also be added to a lehenga choli combo. Gold and silver toned belts can be added to traditional gowns too.

  • Choosing the Right Buttons

Some sherwanis and kurtas might also have buttons. See to it that the buttons are suiting the material and colour of the outfit. The buttons need to blend with the outfit’s pattern too. Avoid going for low-quality buttons.

  • Clutch

Traditional clutch bags look extremely classy with Indian clothes. Clutch bags are available in all colours and tones so either you can go for a matching shade or opt for a contrast tone.

It is best to buy Indian clothes online because you can get amazing varieties for all events. Moreover, online outlets also offer amazing discounts and offers. People who don’t have much time to go and shop personally for Indian wear should browse online.
