From bell sleeves to off-shoulders, from capes to shimmery frills, 2017 has seen it all. Let’s take things up a notch this year, shall we? And believe me, this upgrade is going to be the ‘it’ thing in twenty-eighteen. Here’s a forecast of what the new year might have in store for you in terms of ethnic Indian wear. Get on a call with your tailor, already!
WARNING: You’re going to look like your fave Bollywood celeb.
Whether it's with distressed weaves or distorted symmetry, we think ponchos are going to be the highlight this new year. Trade your capes and crop tops for a poncho, and take your long skirt game to a whole new level.
Once exclusive to Indian royalty, mulmul has gained popularity all over the world for it’s fine, soft cotton muslin. It’s often referred to as ‘woven wind’ for its lightweight quality. Add as many flares as you want without them weighing you down. TV pe breaking news?
We’re planning to replace the good ol’ petticoat in 2018 with churidar pants. Walking in a saree is now easy and all the more stylish. Notice the cut-out blouse, belted pallu, and hello, are pre-draped sarees going to be a thing this year? Hint: YES!
We loved ruffles on our sleeves in 2017, so we replicated that on our lehenga skirts. But we think it’s time we add some waves to our ethnic long skirts as well. Pair them with your basic white shirts and statement neckpieces for the perfect fusion outfit.
