Avoid fashion faux pas that age you prematurely with these tips: balance all-black outfits, mix oversized items with fitted pieces, combine pastels with darker tones, and opt for minimalist jewelry for a timeless look.
A traditional portrayal of the common folk of Bengal is complete with laal-paar sada saree (a white saree with red border) for the women and dhuti-panjabi (dhoti-kurta) for the men. Every time we imagine a Bengali individual the above appearance is what strikes our mind. Be it TV commercial, or a brand-shoot, the people from the state are always portrayed in this fashion.
With the ever evolving fashion sense, the dressing style of Bengal is also changing drastically. Western influence can be seen taking over the traditional dressing style. Men and boys, earlier, used to wear dhuti-panjabi mostly. These days, hardly this attire is visible. Similarly, women used to wear saree and younger girls used to wear frocks. These traditional dresses have become an ‘endangered species’.
