Ethnic with a touch of spice!

With Diwali and the festive season on in India, I decided to write a bit about how you can jazz up your ethnic wear this season... Instead of wearing the same old Anarkali suits, traditional brocades and Saris... try something trendy and cool... 
Its not only the season of festivals but also follows the season of weddings, receptions, parties... 
So its time to spice up your ethnic wear!!

I have compiled a few tips from what we saw on the ramp this Wills Lifestyle Fashion Week, October 2012

Print on print is a big trend all over the world... so why not try the same with your kurtis and leggings/chudidars.... Wear printed Kurtis with printed leggings, mix and match the colours and prints.. This trend is such that the wrongs are all right! 

For all those who do not like wearing very traditional Indian attire... can try out these fusion wears... 
Ethnic prints and colours with western silhouettes.... from dhoti to maxi dresses... from bohemia to kitsch! 

Let your Anarkalis be long and loose and really unconventional... sure to catch all the attention in a party! 

If you are going for a Sari, let the blouse do all the talking!
Ethnic vibrant printed blouse with a great back or neck line... you can just wear a plain vibrant coloured Sari and accessorize it!

Lehenga & cholis are really in these days! Go for deep ethnic colours... plain lehengas, plain cholis and plain dupattas with lots of interesting gold borders! 
Colour block or colour co-ordinate them!

Whites & Off-whites will always remain the option if you want to look classy elegant and suave! 
Go for more masculine cuts, collars. broad yokes and loose fitted Kurtis...

Finally time to experiment with the conventional maang tikaas! Go for hair bands and tie ups that will look not only very trendy but also very traditional!
