Ethnic elegance at work

Thursday, November 08, 2018

Ethnic wear isn’t about just those heavy Anarkalis, it’s also about colours and the spirit of traditions, says Shraddha Pacheriwal

The workplace can be monotonous when you can’t really bring your best ethnic game to it. You’ve been playing it way too safe at office with your everyday wear but now, during the festive season, you have an opening to experiment. You can gear up for Diwali week at office in your best subtle attire. It can be a thin line  between festival wear but still toning it down for office; it can get tricky and confusing.

Ethnic wear isn’t about just those heavy Anarkalis, it’s also about colours and the spirit of traditions. When we are talking about Diwali celebrations at office, it will include working in your comfort zone too. So we are not talking about ethnic wear that’s dripping in chandeliers but we do want to shine out and make it known that it’s festive season. Don’t go for clothes that are too hard to carry, go for fabrics which are airy and pleasant. You can experiment a little with heels since it’s office and you can experiment a lot with your handbags, hairstyle and accessories.

Indo-western dresses are a blessing and very underrated. You can experiment with pastels this season, as they are undiscovered territory. The minimalistic embroidery gives a hint of festive cheer. Style it with some intricate chandelier earrings and a pair of bright nominal mojris. You can also pair this with pretty much everything or nothing and it just won’t go wrong. Cigarette pants or palazzo are your saviours which are pretty much a rage right now in ethnic.

Kurtis make for great comfort options and there is no way to go wrong with them. Since you have many options to pair kurtis with, it’s always a good choice to pair it up with heavy accessories like bangles or anklets. Also, strap sandals add more shine to this perfect office look.

Believe in tunics that let you breathe and look sharp at the same time. All those who said festivals should be all about bright colours need to mould their rules a little. Because this festive season it’s all about elegance and different cuts. Dark colours bring out the elegance in some unique way - Add silver or gold-toned mojris for the perfect and bright look. Also, carry a beautiful clutch or potli and make this look a beautiful dream come true.
