More dressing ideas and hacks:

Ethnic gowns:


An Indian twist to the westernized way of wearing gown robes, you can pair an ethnic gown with a fitting salwar or a flaring pyjama or palazzo. Your Mastanis are a special type of ethnic gowns. For the upcoming festive season I’d like to suggest that you go beyond the omnipresent red and occasional pink and purple to bold colors like suave blue or cocoa brown. Trying something different this time.

Anarkali dupatta set:


It is an evergreen style of dressing up that never goes out of fashion. You can forego the dupatta and pair it up with fashionable jackets. Rajasthani jackets with bandhani and mirrors are quite hit this season.

Designer saree:


The nine yards of precision and perfection. There is something about sarees that enchants all. The various types, prints, patterns and styles make up for the slight bit of saree management problems that we face, but it is worth it! Make sure that you select a saree material that you are comfortable wearing for longer durations and also the print must be versatile enough for you to use it later on too.

Also, you can make some dresses for yourself with old/used sarees at home! Wondering how? Click here.

Lehenga set:


Every girl has a dream to dress up in ‘the lehenga’ for her big day. Well, you can always relive some memories or make new ones by adoring a lehenga every now and then. Selecting a lehenga as per your body shape gives you utmost satisfaction.
