So, what’s the best part about being a desi girl? Yes, the food, yes, the traditions and culture…however, the best for the last…gorgeous traditional attires! Just like everybody, we love dressing up in traditional Indian outfits for weddings, festivals, you name it! The vibrant colors, intricate prints and stunning embroidery are eye-catching, not to mention that traditional clothes are figure-flattering for just about any body type! I think when it comes to desi clothes, people think that they can only be worn for “special events.” That a true misconception! Check out these ethnic with a twist ideas!

A chic tunic with contrast leggings!

The basic rule is to keep it simple. Tunics are popular and pair well with leggings. A tunic is a long top that falls straight down and can be worn as is or belted. Pair them with stilettos and become a little edgy with a hint of drama.


  A crop top with a long skirt!   

A trend that returned from the 80’s, the cropped top is no new fad. What’s more – it now has a partner in crime – the high waisted skirt with the two becoming inseparable. Pair it with pearl earrings or with a heavy work dupatta and you have a wedding trousseau for your next wedding.

High slit kurta and palazzos!

Palazzos are in rage today and you can take your kurta-palazzo combination to a whole new level. Wearing a long waist high slit kurta with a straight cut palazzo makes the attire look conservative, yet playful.

Crop Top With Lehenga

Combine the best of both the worlds by pairing a crop top with a lehenga or a long ethnic skirt. Off-shoulder and ruffled crop tops with sarees or lehengas are the fad right now. All of this without the pain of getting different blouses stitched. Why not, right?
