Ethnic wear 101: Shopping for clothing online

Know the trends, pick the clothing to match, and turn heads with your gorgeous style. We help you shop for ethnic wear online.

However much we embrace Western fashions and etiquette, Indian fashion is always our go-to option for formal wear. Indian ethnic wear is classy and tailored to suit the Indian body frame. Besides, its styling and colouring make the clothing look really attractive. It is little wonder that Indian ethnic wear like sarees and salwar kameez sets are popular even abroad!

But just like other clothing styles, Indian ethnic wear also goes through changes every year. The year 2017 was a big year for ethnic wear, as a number of famous designers innovated with silhouettes, length and even embellishments. The year 2018 is also set to be the year of ethnic wear, with several celebrities opting for it over Western wear.

You should have a lot of ethnic wear in your wardrobe, in line with the ongoing fashion trends. And it’s not that hard to pick the latest designs, too – just log on to your favourite shopping site or app and get shopping.

In your quest for the perfect ethnic wear, you can go online to shop from your favourite shopping app for:

* Salwar kameez or churidar suits:

Salwar kameez and churidar suits never go out of style. They are also quite versatile, transitioning seamlessly from casual to formal. So whether it is a usual day of work or a wedding reception, you can wear a churidar suit with equal aplomb to both. We suggest buying the freshest styles in Biba suits online. You can find a number of Biba suits online in various colours and styles, so help yourself look great in ethnic wear this year.

* Bell and/or ruffled sleeves:

Sleeves made a big splash in 2017, and the trend continues this year. But the style has changed from the floor-sweeping sleeves of last year, to more muted silhouettes. However, ruffled and bell sleeves are still quite sought after. The rule of thumb with sleeve styling, is that if the sleeve is detailed, then the rest of the kurta should have an A-line or fitted silhouette. You can have bell or ruffled sleeves in both short and long kurtas this year.

* Stunning sarees. Just like churidar and kurta sets, sarees never go out of style. It is a demure yet sexy garment, accentuating a woman’s curves while making her appear slimmer and taller. The saree can also be draped in a number of ways. One style that caught the attention of fashionistas last year, and which trend is sure to continue this year, is to wear a cigarette pant or churidar inside the saree. The saree is draped such that it exposes one leg to show the garment worn underneath. It is a style well suited to tall and thin women, but other body types can also try it with a short sleeved or strappy blouse.

* Lehengas. Every woman needs at least two lehengas in her wardrobe. Lehenges enhance the appeal of your curves and make you look elegant and feminine. From celebrities to everyday working women, anybody can rock a lehenga. It doesn’t need a specific body shape or height to look really great. Pair it with strappy heels and a shimmery dupatta across your shoulders, and you’re good to go.
