How To Style Indian Wear To Work: Top Tips From Team POPxo!

Wearing ethnic to work can be tricky, but if done well, it can be a total hit too! The only thing we need to keep in mind is how to balance the blings and colours with the appropriate amount of skin! Dressing up in those lovely kurtas, palazzos and sarees sometimes can be so refreshing, and it definitely looks pretty! Especially with a dash of kohled eyes, danglers, and that tiny bindi! We love to wear the fusion versions to work since they are the most comfortable and airy! Here are some ways in which members of Team POPxo style their Indian wear to work and make them look so so gorgeous!

1. The Graceful Sari!
