My Ethnic Connection

No matter how modern we become, but ethnic fashion has charm of it own . Who says ethnic clothing is limited? From what I see, ethnic fashion has got no boundaries! From sarees, to anarkalis to straight cut kurtas, everything has got new meaning. International fashion is being dominated by ikkat prints which comes from our own motherland. Ethnic fashion has got whole new level to it.

With the help of this blog I will be sharing my take on the kind of ethnic pieces I would love to have this festive season. So let’s begin!

  1. The Lehenga: Let me start with most traditional of all, lehenga. We all love the flair that a lehenga provides. As traditional one thinks it to be, this particular piece of clothing could be as versatile as possible.

Let me break it down for you guys, a lehenga consists of a top, a skirt and a drape to give that shape. And you think this as a combination to be worn together, you can definitely wear it separately. Pair that beautiful flaired skirt with a plain collared shirt to give it more of fusion look.


Use that ‘choli’ of your and pair it with dhoti pants for that more put together look.

In this look. I paired this floral skirt with yellow colored blouse and beautiful dupatta.


I went with minimal makeup because I wanted that fresh dewy look. Did nothing fancy to my hair and finished the look with hoop earrings and gold choker necklace.


  1. A’ line kurta: Pastels are ruling the fashion trend currently. I had this peach colored A line high neck kurta with beautiful detailing around the collar, it had same colored dupatta which made me really sad! So, I paired this simple kurta with this Maroon brocade dupatta with golden detailing. It instantly uplifted the look of my dressdsc_0103

I went ahead with bold red lips and kept the accessories to bare minimal. And as we are talking about red lips, I am completely into bold lips currently and I have done a video on Affordable red lipsticks, you can head over to my YouTube channel to watch.


  1. Anarkali : Wearing anarkalis as dress has become my favorite thing. Here, in this look I wore my black anarkali from ‘Soch’ as a dress/gown and took dupatta as a cover up just because I love drapes!


I also experimented with nose ring in this look in two different ways. Septum rings are huge trend right now I also wanted to give it a shot( but I understood its not for me ;). For makeup I had slightly winged eyeliner and bright lip shade.


So. go ahead ladies and experiment with your clothing this festive season 🙂
