How much ever westernized our lives can become, Indian ethnic wear will always hold a special place in our culture and hearts. No denim, dress or tee shirt can beat the beauty of a saree or the simplicity of a kurti. But what makes an ethnic look complete? It is not just about the dress, it is also about how uniquely we accessorize it and how gracefully we carry it. We, at Fabclub, are here to help you complete your ethnic look and look chic, beautiful and trendy. So, get a notepad and take notes. 😊
- Chandelier earring / Jhumkis
Who doesn’t like colorful, long, traditional jhumkis with your ethnic wear?! The chandelier earrings or long jhumkis just change your look and give such a beautiful, ethnic air! Other types like the hoop earrings, danglers, cuffs, Amrapali earrings, drop earrings and so many more are a boon to your jewelry box and there is no end to how many you want to buy. We get you Miss! Been there done that.
- Statement necklace
Like earrings, collecting beautiful necklaces has no end! Ethnic necklaces have beautiful designs and can go with any ethnic wear. Be it tribal jewelry, chunky junk jewelry, chokers, Polki, Meenakari, Gold or silver plated, beaded – you can mix and match and aim at a different look every time. A statement necklace can be great enough for your entire ethnic look and can make you look so trendy!
- Banarasi Dupatta
Buying a gorgeous, good quality, heavy banarasi silk dupatta is, we swear, the best investment. You put on a simple chikankari white kurta and white pallazo; team it up with a bright pink and golden banarasi dupatta. And you are so ready for a family function with your simple yet chic outfit! You can mix and match your banarasi dupatta with any ethnic wear and it will give you same transformation every time. We also love leheriya dupattas and bandhani dupattas!
‘Chhudi jo khanki haathon me’ – this 90s number will always make sense, because bangles have their own pretty element! Stacking up colorful bangles can transform your ethnic wear from a 10 to a 100. You just feel beautiful and feminine wearing them, and who doesn’t like that feeling?!
Imagine you are getting ready for a wedding you have to attend. You put on a gorgeous lehenga choli, huge earrings and a beautiful necklace. You look at yourself the mirror. Hmm, something is still missing, you think. And then your eyes fall upon the packet of colourful bindis that has been calling you. You pick it up and chose a small shimmery golden bindi and apply it. And voila, the magic happens! That tiny dot on your forehead changes your look completely and you fall in love with yourself!
Doesn’t that happen to all of us? This prominent symbol of our culture is so small but makes such a difference. So when you wear even the simplest kurti next time you go to office, try putting on a small bindi and see the effect. There won’t be any going back.
On a cold winter morning, add in a scarf with your kurta/jeans or your kurti/palazzo, and it will add a cozy yet chic effect. There are a gazillion ways on Youtube to style your scarf. Your scarf can also be a thin, cotton one which can be styled in the warmest of summers. Try it out and thank us later. 😊
- Chunky ring
A unique chunky ring has the ability to catch everyone’s attention! You can keep answering the question ‘Wow where did you get this ring from?’ all day. Get one with a color that can work with all your dresses, be it indo-western or a saree.
- Ethnic juttis
We can’t deny that shoes make up our personality. And with so many pretty, traditional options, why wouldn’t we want to try all of them? The famous Punjabi juttis go so well with our ethnic wear! These colorful number are the best way to complete the ethnic look. Kolhapuris and embroidered peep-toes also look very stylish with that pretty kurti or saree or even with a denim!
Now that you know how to amp up your ethnic look, we will let you try it all out and appreciate your beautiful self in peace now 😊
