Ethnic Days in Office

Ethnic wear has its own charm. No pantsuit can match up to the level of ethnic dresses. The few tips mentioned here will make sure that you turn heads on your ethnic day. You don’t need to learn how to become a fashion designer for the same.

Trust Sarees

Sarees are indeed the most reliable option when you looking for formal ethnic wear for the workplace and they are not just a women’s dress for the wedding. A very simple printed and well-draped boutique saree can make you look stunning at your office. Sarees for the wedding are quite different from what you need. You should go for a boat neck and a 3/4th sleeve blouse. Searching for sarees online will provide you with a lot of saree designs.  Avoid the sarees for parties. Just a touch of makeup and a neat hairdo will be enough to complete the look with a boutique design. You can even skip buying anything new altogether and trust the age-old classics in your mother’s wardrobe. Why go elsewhere when you have a boutique at home?

Palazzos and Cigarette Pants

Patialas, salwar suits and churidars are now a part of the 90s and 80s fashion. Palazzos and cigarette pants have no stolen the show. If you want to look your sophisticated best, you can pair these with a long kurta. Try wearing a block print palazzo with a simple kurta and thank us later. If you need hairstyle suggestions, you can go for a braided bun with a side partition. Light jewellery will look great.

A-Line Kurtas

You should try not wearing anarkalis to a formal place. They look best at the more fun and jazzy events. If you want to wear a comfortable kurta and still want to look formal, you can opt for the straight cut A-line kurtas. You can find the same when you search for ethnic wear online. Make sure that your kurta has 3/4th sleeves. Also, kitten heels and wedges with cigarette pants will complete the look. This is just a suggestion and you shouldn’t restrict yourself. A variety of kurta patterns and kurta styles look amazing on anything be it trousers, jeans, leggings or even long skirts. A pair of kolhapuris will make sure that you receive a ton of compliments on your look.

Mandarin Collars

There is nothing which looks smarter at a workplace than Chinese or Mandarin collars. If you are purchasing a long kurta online with a Mandarin collar, the only earrings which you will possibly need is a pair of dainty earrings.

Go Indigo

If there is one colour which has taken over this season in an unprecedented fashion, it is indigo. Just pick up an indigo kurta and pair it with a contrasting shade like red. You can even go for a casual indigo lehenga.


Pairing a plain dupatta with a printed dress and a printed one with a relatively sophisticated attire will do wonders to your look. These dupattas come in a variety of fabrics and you can choose anything from silk, georgette, chiffon to cotton and many other fabrics Online fashion in India is on a boom. These days women are wonderfully pairing these dupattas with t-shirts and skirts too.


Last but certainly not the least, jhumkis can add charm to any look. You can pair jhumkis with anything be it a kurta or a saree. Don’t forget to shop for bindis too.
