7 Ethnic Wear Fashion Trends To Look Out For In 2018
Every Indian girl has half of her wardrobe filled with ethnic wear. We can agree that Indian wear can make a woman look gorgeous and elegant. And as the wedding season is in full swing, we think it’s the right time to share a few ethnic wear trends so that you can immediately call up your masterji and ask him to make you a fabulous outfit.
So this year, get ready to stock your cupboards with fringes, extra-long-sleeved blouses, and capes.
1. FRONT-FACING DUPATTA
There are different styles of wearing a dupatta, but the one trend that you are going to see on various celebrities this year is the front-facing dupatta. It’s a chic trend and a fresh way to style your lehenga.
2. FLOOR-LENGTH CAPES
Hear, hear, ladies! Capes are not going anywhere this year. Capes have replaced your usual cholis and are a great way to upgrade your ethnic look. You can even go for ponchos, as they look equally gorgeous.
3. IVORY AND SHEERS
Thanks to Manish Malhotra, you will be seeing a lot of sheer, lace, and ivory-coloured Indian wear. Various celebs like Kriti Sanon, Vani Kapoor, and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan were seen flaunting the evergreen ivory shade at Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma’s Mumbai wedding reception in December.
4. ALL THINGS FLORAL
I absolutely love Sabyasachi and his collections of floral-print lehengas and sarees. It makes me want one… they look SO stunning. After Anushka Sharma wore a blush-toned lehenga with delicate floral embroidery, girls across the country are going gaga over this embroidery style.
5. FRINGE FEVER
We love tassled earrings and shoes, right? How about adding some fringe to your Indian wear and standing out? We are a 100% sure that the fringe style is going to take the Indian fashion industry by storm. Honestly, I can’t wait to have some fringe in my wardrobe.
6. FLOOR-LENGTH CAPES
Remember how Sonam Kapoor flaunted that gorgeous blush gown with dramatic sleeves at Cannes back in May 2017? Well, the trend is here to stay and about to get bigger in 2018. This dramatic sleeve style is inspired from the 70s, and is perfect for people who love to experiment. Go bold and big with those sleeves, girls!
7. RUFFLE MANIA
We’ve all seen ruffled tops, but this year, the ruffled lehenga skirt is going to take over desi fashion trends. This is a complete ‘east meets west’ trend, and boy are we are loving it! Pair it with a choli, an ankle-length cape with a slit, or even a plain white top. Such a versatile trend, don’t you think?
