How To Style Indian Wear For Work

How To Style Indian Wear For Work
  1. Choose the right fabric

We have the wonderful freedom of playing and experimenting with fabric in our ethnic clothes. However, no matter how beautiful heavy fabric like brocade and matka silk may look…it is really not the ideal choice for a busy work day. Opt for soft and easy fabric like jute silk or cotton that is not only comfortable but looks elegant as well.

  1. Replace the dupatta

While dressing up for work, we want to look sharp and neat. A flowy dupatta might be a little distracting at the office. A good idea would be the opt for a sherwani style kurta that looks formal and perfect for office and does not require you to wear a dupatta. Choose kurtas with neat mandarin collars or a modern Peter-pan collar to keep your look fresh as well as formal.

  1. Accessorize neatly

There is no doubt Indian jewellery looks grand and gorgeous. The traditional Indian jhumkas and neckpieces are often adorned with multiple layers of metal or beads. Choose small earrings or studs that do not attract a lot of attention. If you are already wearing something that has prints or a lot of detailing, always remember to go easy on the accessories.

  1. Wear ethnic jackets over kurtis

A traditional Bandhgala jacket is the perfect Indian office wear item. Wear these jackets over a fitted kurti or a long kurta to add some structure to your ensemble. You have the freedom to choose from the number of different styles they come in – quarter sleeves, full length sleeves or sleeveless. They come in longer lengths which is best suited if you want to wear ethnic in winter. Opt for neutral hues if you are going for a longer Bandhgala jacket for work.

  1. Pick the right saree and blouse

Nothing looks as beautiful as the saree when it comes to traditional Indian wear. It can, however, be a little hard to manage if you have a long day at the office. When it comes to picking the right saree for work, make sure you pay attention to the choice of fabric. Georgette or crepe sarees are always a safer choice as they are lightweight and do not wrinkle easily. Wear blouses with more coverage. You can replace the blouse with a full sleeve or collared cropped tops to add some fun whilst looking elegant and formal.

  1. Work with fusion

The best thing about Indian wear is that you can mix it up with your western wear and still look desi. Pair a kurti with cigarette pants or palazzos and pumps or throw on a sleek blazer on top of your saree. Indian wear blends beautifully with formal western wear. Experiment away and you will have a number or outfit ideas to choose from.
