Wearing those prim and proper shirts and trousers to work daily? Once in a while, you might throw on a pencil skirt or a pantsuit. But western wear does not really satiate our need for beautiful colors and luminosity. How about modifying your casual ethnic wear into gorgeous office wear? Here are a couple of style tips for enhancing your ethnic office wear.
1. The saree-ed professional: Although sarees were almost the epitome of any Indian woman's formal wear, they are mostly limited to special occasions. A simple, well-draped, printed saree is perhaps one of the most elegant formal wear ever. Keep the blouse stylish with 3/4th sleeves and boat neck. You're bound to make a statement at work, teamed with a beautiful hairdo, and a touch of light makeup.
2. The pant reversal: Patialas, salwars, and churidars are predominantly mainstream. A pair of palazzos or a pair of cigarette pants is one of the best pieces of clothing in a tough working environment where you need to be agile but comfortable. They look best when matched with long kurtas, adding an elegant and subtle touch to the whole ensemble. These days, kalamkari or block-printed palazzos coupled with Kurtis are quite a rage. Twist your hair with a side partition in a braided bun, throw in some light jewelry, and you're ready to boss it.
3. A-line kurtas: Save those anarkalis for those flashy events. Straight cut or A-line kurtas with 3/4th sleeves have formal touch all over them. Straight cuts paired with kitten heels or wedges associated with a pair of cigarette pants make for perfect office attire.
4. Mandarin collars: None like Mandarin collars or Chinese collars says power dressing. It's elegant, sleek, and super smart. Choose long Kurtis with high collars and have a pair of dainty earrings to keep the look simple.
5. Indigo inspiration: Perhaps the most loved prints of the season are the indigo dyes and prints. For almost anything, you can go indigo and rock the day. When selecting a Kurti, don't be afraid to pair it with contrasting bottoms such as red, orange, or parrot green. The indigo dabu and bagru prints are a trend this summer from sarees to skirts to palazzos.
So don’t be conscious anymore to walk in the office with ethnic.
