A lot of ethnic wear brands have recently come up with their new collections and I’ve just been having a gala time buying stuff left, right and center. You all know my love for ethnic wear be it sarees or kurtas or lehengas. I practically live in cotton kurtas, anarkalis and palazzos. For me they are my go-to clothing for comfort wear, festive wear and even work wear. Living in a city where the only season it has throughout the year is summer, it is really important for me to invest in good, comfortable Indian clothing that I can mix and match. I was browsing through W’s latest kurtas for women and picking pieces for myself and my mom, and I thought I would share my picks here on the blog as well. Since they cater to a wide range of ethnic wear from casual to festive, there’s something you can find for every occasion.
When it comes to organizing my ethnic wear, I like to divide it by a few basic categories that helps me in mixing and matching, and also helps me in organizing my wardrobe and figuring out what are the pieces that I need to invest in next. Here are some of my top favorites from W for Woman’s latest collection.
My everyday ethnic wear needs to be comfortable and simple, allowing me to get ready in a jiffy in the mornings. I usually spend my time running errands, getting household chores done and working on my day’s schedule. I love opting for comfortable silhouettes and breathable fabrics. Sleeveless kurtas, light fabrics with interesting hemlines would be my go-to option.
Don’t we all have those days where absolutely don’t feel like dressing up, but we kind of have to? My answer to such days is palazzo pants! My staples would be a plain one and a cute printed one that I can wear with crop tops or kurtis. Neutral colours like these beige ones or even the white polka dot ones are a great option for days when you feel like putting in the least amount of effort into your outfit.
A hint of gold always gives a royal touch to your outfit. Which is why I chose these two pretty anarkalis with a gold hem. I’ve always loved adding a little bling to my festive wear. The white and pink full sleeve Mughal gown has such interesting printed detail that it was automatically my first choice. For the white gown, the floral neckline was what caught my attention. Overall I think these would go perfectly for any festive occasion.
Being in a creative field, I like to keep my work wear interesting. They say you convey your personality through your clothing, and when I dress for work I need my outfit to be creative and to mean business. The attached gilet on the white and navy kurta adds the right amount of flare. Pair it with interesting bottoms and you have your outfit ready to go! The pale pink kurta with tassels in the front is another one of my favorites. Both the outfits make sure that you stand out without being over-the-top.
So those are my favorite picks for the coming months! Which ones are your favorite, do comment and let me know!
