Ethnic wear | Confused? A Quick Guide to style for different occasions

No matter how much we love wearing western outfits like jeans, shorts, skirts and all but there is always that excitement when it comes to ethnic wear. We all want to look glamorous in ethnic outfits but at the same time we prefer something simple and elegant. As the more simple the outfit the more it is easy to carry and more comfortable to wear.

In India, especially there are so many occasions where girls prefer to wear ethnic clothes. So many different festivals and even when it comes to wedding there are so many functions that take place, like Sagan, haldi, mehndi, sangeet, etc. And girls never feel like repeating in any function… Do they? We all wear outfits according to different functions that happen. As in, usually we wear according to themes of the function like yellowish on haldi, green on mehndi and so on.

When it comes to purchase of ethnic wear we all get confused from where to buy. According to me it’s better if we get them stitched from reputed boutique, usually it’s hard to get desired outfit. But if you want to purchase readymade only then there are several good markets at places like model town, rajouri garden, south-ex, kamla nagar. To be specific some of the boutiques that are best in model town are riwayat, the bliss, femina, ethnic town and several more, also you can buy online as well on websites like,
