Fabrics and colours are vital to how appealing your outfit looks. The critical factor that ties them together is the drape and the silhouette. With the upcoming Navratri season, gota patti work and zari embroidery are making a big comeback. They will also be sharing space with the already popular sequin and zardosi embroidery. It is heartening to see that the latest fashion trends in India such as these are not only carving a niche for Indian wear but also working on the revival of forgotten crafts that are a symbol of the country’s rich heritage.

Classic Lehengas

Season of festivals is ongoing. Every woman wants to flaunt her beauty on such special occasions. Lehenga is one of the Indian ethnic wear which is the most preferred one as it is embellished with heavy embroidery and work such as, beads, motifs, and sequins. We recognise pastel colors to be trending with heavy sequins and zari work lehengas complementing with lightweight gota patti dupattas. On the other hand, the introduction of plain lehengas with trending features like ruffles, and mirror work for the millennials are the current in- thing.

Modish Edgy Shararas

Bored with churidars and salwars? Experiment your kurtas with flared palazzos and gher shararas. You can also dress with a short kurta, high –low asymmetrical kurtas or long/short kurtas with shararas. Sharara makes for a unique outfit for this festive season. The balance of a zardosi short kurta with flared gotta patti pants adds a modern twist to your traditional look. From bright hues to pastels, Sharara looks very comfortable and chic, making it ideal for this Navratri season.

Evergreen Anarkalis

Who can deny the beauty of an anarkali suit? They are fit for an Indian princess and if styled well can make any woman look like a princess! They are so regal and majestic. Even a not-so-fancy well stitched Anarkali dress is a statement in itself. It’s just so effortless to look good in a lavish anarkali outfit. Just slip into one, do your makeup and hair, put on a pair of chandelier earrings and you’re ready to steal the spotlight!

Elegant fusion Sarees

Sarees are integral to India. We grow up subconsciously linking sarees to every special and auspicious occasion. However global we may become in our choices, saree will always remain close to our hearts. Lighter and more affordable fabrics like cotton silk and art silk are the fabrics of choice this festive season. The ethnic fashion trends for sarees involve such silk sarees with self prints. The unique part about such styles is the lustre of the fabric itself that stands out and does all the talking. In trend these days, there are ‘one piece sarees’ which are reframed into sari-dresses which are defining a new fashion statement for gowns as well as saris. They are highly admirable and fascinating, with pre-draped and pre-styled followed by ultra comfort and movement-friendly sarees which won’t budge even with your most vigorous dance moves and will only take seconds to put on.

Boho Chic dhoti pants

Nothing can replace the traditional sarees and lehengas but hitting the horizon, we have a new fashion ensemble pacing the charts. Opt for dhoti pants styled with an uber-chic kurta or crop top, and slay this festive season with the utmost ease. Comfortable and far from boring, they are slowly becoming a very popular millennial’s go-to option. The flowy silhouette gives a fantastic style to all the ladies waiting to look gorgeous. You can always team your dhoti pants with a straight kurta, asymmetrical kurta, with a peplum top, crop top, jacket or a cape.
