How often have you seen a group of aunties out on a walk wearing kurta + churidar + cardigan + shawl... with sports shoes? Almost every other winter morning. Well, let us tell you that it’s okay! It’s okay to wear sneakers with ethnic Indian wear and go out in public too. Just, do it stylishly! Take a look at some of our favourite fashionistas of Bollywood nailing sneakers with ethnic wear.

Here’s the super cool crop shirt (Rs 499) from Rheson’s Motichoor Collection. Wear it with palazzos, a statement necklace and your sneakers for a chic look.

We found a similar gold-toned necklace (Rs 399) by Infuzze so you can ace Kriti’s fusion look like a pro with drop-crotch trousers, matching top and white sneakers.

Pair these gold-toned drop earrings (Rs 439) by Anouk with your outfit and nail the indie-look game like Athiya. We love how she has matched her top with sneakers.
