How to sizzle in ethnic wear at work

Best Salwar Suits


Still wearing those prim and proper shirts and trousers to work every day? Perhaps you throw on a pencil skirt or a pantsuit once in a while. But western wear doesn’t really satiate our desire for lovely colours and brightness. So how about transforming your ethnic casual wear into gorgeous office wear? Here are our picks on how you can sizzle in ethnic wear at work-

The Pant reversal

Patialas, salwars and churidars are highly mainstream. At the workplace, you need to be agile but comfortable. One of the best pieces of clothing is a pair of palazzos and a pair of cigarette pants. These look best when paired with long kurtas, giving the whole ensemble an elegant and sophisticated look.

Straight cut or A-line kurta

Save those anarkalis for those jazzy outfits and OTT celebration days. Straight cut or A-line with 3/4th sleeves have ‘ethnic-formal’ written all over them!

Mandarin Collars

Mandarin collars or Chinese collars are synonymous with ‘power dressing’. It’s chic, sophisticated and super smart. Pick long Kurtis with high collars and keep the look simple with dainty earrings.

Indigo inspiration

Indigo dyes and prints are the most loved prints this season. You could go indigo in absolutely anything and rock the day with some serious style statements!

Scarves or Stole

Many of us might be used to wearing a jacket or blazer to top off formal western attire. A great way to substitute this with the ‘desi' touch, is to use a stole, shawl or dupatta. It can be styled in a number of ways depending on what you are wearing. It totally adds your own unique touch to the outfit.
