A Traditional & Ethnic Guide To A Festival Ready You

Mary posted on 22 August

It is no secret that we love shopping, which is why we love quirky brands that add an extra element to our signature style. The upcoming festive season is inspiring us to look for ethnic items that won't just sync with our style, but also help us stand out from the crowd.

From sarees to handbags, there are some things that are an essential part of any traditional wardrobe. How many of these have you added to your shopping bag?

Ethnic Jewellery

Vintage, antique and ethnic jewellery pieces are the ultimate pair-ups for the bride and her entourage. From gold and silver jhumkis to neckpieces that compliment your traditional attire, they make your ensemble stand out in the crowd with ease. Make sure to add some of them to your collection.

Traditional Sarees


In terms of traditional outfits, nothing beats the elegance of the six-yard splendour; the saree. Woven with threads of gold, or strands of cotton, and adorned with traditional motifs that are painstakingly hand-stitched by artisans, the saree has many stunning avatars. The perfect outfit for almost any traditional occasion, we recommend a silk Benarasi saree for its beautiful motifs and sheer opulence. Perfect for your festive party get-together.

Handbags And Other Accessories

Classic handbags and clutches, in particular, have stood the test of time, trend and age, and that's why heading out for a festive party or wedding without one can make it seem like you are missing on a crucial element. Make sure to get some quirky-yet-stylish bags to give your traditional wardrobe a complete and well-put-together look.

Dupattas And Kurtas


While a saree might be perfect for the evenings, pairing a kurta with a beautiful dupatta might just be the ideal choice for a morning outing. From long kurtas with straight pants to anarkalis and tunics, style it up with chunky silver jewellery to get that perfect ethnic look. Integrating comfort with ease, both kurtas and dupattas can easily add a glamorous and stylish touch to your traditional wardrobe.
