We have it we flaunt it: Indian Ethnic wear

India is probably the most ancient and the most continuous civilization wherein our culture hasn’t been any short of diversity. Even after multiple foreign attacks from the Persians, Mughals and the British, somehow our culture still survived. And it is still enduring in today’s age of modernisation.

How popular are these?

When we think about ethnic wear, India still rules! People still love to wear and flaunt Indian dresses. Festivals are the occasions where we take out our heavy salwar-kameez suits, our lehengas and our expensive sarees. Our Indian celebrities have even gone as far as to wear Indian outfits on international events. Sonam Kapoor, Vidya Balan, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, etc. are in this troop. Not just Indians but many of the international celebrities have been seen wearing Indian attires, for example, Selena Gomez, Cameron Diaz, Snoop Dogg, Angelina Jolie and so on.

Indian ethnic wear not only looks colorful, bejeweled and cultured but is, above all, comfortable. No one has ever heard anyone complaining about how tight and uncomfortable a lehenga is or how constricting a pair of salwar- kameez is. Although, one would agree that  a saree is a little tedious job in the start. Nevertheless, it still brings out the best of you.

Variations in ethnicity

Every region in India will provide its version of ethnicity. Every state has its unique type of clothing. North Indians enjoy wearing salwar – kameezes, kurtis, lehengas, sarees, etc. The north is famous for its Banarasi Sarees, Patiala Suits and so on; whereas, the South shows off its ethnicity in its gold – in laid Kancheepuram sarees online. Rajasthanis and Gujaratis, in the west, have their “change – cholis” and the Bengali’s in the east flaunt their white “sharis” with intricate red borders.

That is the beauty of Indian wear. It can be experimented with, and each person can have his or her style. Indian attires are rich in colors, patterns, designs and intricacies which set it apart from the other kinds of fashions from around the world.

Not just for women but even men enjoy their kurta – pajamas, lungis, sherwanis, and semi – Indian attires. International celebrities, like Brett Lee and Jackie Chan, have also made Indian men’s wear famous in the world. Nowadays, all the leading Indian brands (and even some of the international ones) have started experimenting and breathing fresh new looks into these cultural garbs. Top brands like Ritu Kumar, Satya Paul, Sabhyasachi are exclusively meant for Indian women’s clothing. Similarly, Manyawar goes for men.

Getting fashionable and branded yet ethnic Indian wear has now become even simpler due to the rise of online shopping marts. Leading online clothes stores are increasingly hosting all sorts of Indian ethnic wear, especially during the festive seasons of Diwali, Holi, and Navratri because they know that wearing traditional attires in India will never go out of fashion. Many of the top brands also exhibit their dresses and outfits in this domain on online shopping stores like Myntra, Craftsvilla and so on.
