“Clothes aren’t going to change the world, the women who wear them will.” – Anna Klein
Greetings Ladies! Every time you open your closet to grab a pair of jeans and pants to gear up for the office and the ethnics give you a sigh? Are you bored of the same pant-suit and jeans-top combo and want a sizzling yet classy and elegant look to rock at your workplace?
Here are some ideas that you can go for with the staples that you already have in your wardrobe:
1. When in Doubt, Wear JEANS:
Jeans goes with everything, literally everything. Don’t trust me? Just have a look!!!
Pair them with collared long/short kurti: This chic and casual look will let you look intense yet stylish at the same time. Can also add light accessories (like: Light Oxidized jewellery/bracelet) and complete the look with juttis, Kolhapuris, sneakers, pumps, loafers or even oxford shoes to give it a modern look!
You can also wear Collared high-low shirt dress and can pair up with a plain thin waist belt if you want to show-off your slim figure…
Play with Slits!!
Pair up with front or side high slit kurti with simple yet bold block prints to give you that edgy look. The trick is to keep it sober by choosing small jhumkis or studs and not go over the top. Again you can pair it up with any kind of footwear.
Wrap a Scarf!
Use a square scarf or an ethnic stole with a solid long kurti, an ankle length jeans and let your scarf tell a story.! 😉
Layer it Up with Short Angarkha Kurtis:
Short Angarkha kurtis looks great on tall ladies with long legs. Pair the ensemble with pumps, stilletoes or flats for a flattering appeal.
Grab a jacket and go bossy!!
Opt for a short embroidered jacket or a flowy long ethnic jacket and make heads turn. Denim jackets too work wonders in adding a style quotient. But keeping the office ambiance in mind, do choose subtle embroidery and decent denims. Complete your look with minimalistic jewellery, pumps/Block heels/Juttis and you are good to go!
2. Pace in Palazzo:
Team up with kurtis: Palazzo and kurti are besties! Choose solid or patterned kurti with wide-legged palazzos.
Can add a scarf matching the base colour of the palazzos while keeping in contrast with the kurti to let each element stand out and you look as stunning as ever!
Tucked in Shirts:
Why leave the staple white shirt behind?!Tuck it in with the flared palazzo, a sling bag with a nice pair of shoes and walk down the glamorous road in style!
Jazz up with Jackets:
The most go-to attire for work -Jackets/Denim vest. Pull it off with a tank top/kurti and a jacket over and hit the road.
Go Sheer with Chickenkari Kurtis:
Time for your chickenkari kurti to shine at your workplace. Add a nice scarf or a plain collared kurti with the ankle-length palazzo and go desi all the way.
3. Flare it Up with Skirts:
Ethnic skirts are so in these days. But ditching them for office wear might not be a smart thing to do! Choose the subtle prints or classy block prints and pair them with solid full sleeve shirts or long side slit kurtis. Can also play with different jackets/vests, peep-toes or flat sandals based on your mood! 😉 while avoiding too much embellishments to glam you up!
4. Dress up with Kurti-Dresses:
Ditch the bottoms and let your flared, trail cut or floor-sweeping anarkali kurtis make a statement!! Just belt it out to give you a more defined and fresh look while keeping you comfy enough to twirl at your desk with grace and charm.
5. Up your Saree Game:
Gone are the days when sarees used to stacked up and wait till you jack them up in marriage events and party functions. Draping this 6-yard cloth with sheer elegance can be a little tricky but putting up your ‘boss-lady’ image up front should not… Right?
Opt for pastels, neutrals and earthy tones to avoid looking over-the-top. Choose handloom cottons/linens or digital/abstract print Georgettes with solid boat, collared and long sleeved blouses for a hassle free look.
Throw on a blazer or well-fitted cardigans for a more formal look. Don your simple yet classy watch with a hair updo and flaunt that feminine charm of yours!
Now more than ever the fashion trends are going crazy and experimenting, offering a variety of apparel to choose from. So let go of the boredom and passing nods, free yourself from the shackles of stereotypes, give wings to your imagination, glide with poise and let the attentive glances realize that you are a force to be reckoned with!!
