The moment winters start sneaking in, our ethnics take a back seat! Experimenting with our look might be on the wish list, but the chilly winter breeze holds us back from trying anything new. Most of the times we just want to wrap ourselves in a cozy woolen shrug or jacket and make it to work.
If you ask me, adding an ethnic flair to your winter outfit is just a five-minute game! All you need are some quick styling hacks and you are good to cut a dash at work, wedding, college or brunch!
Accessorise your sweaters and jackets
If you often limit your accessorizing itch to only ethnic wear, check out how Kritika Khurana (thatbohogirl) is keeping her ethnic game on point even in the winters! Ditch your woolen scarves and style your denim jacket and knitted sweaters with some boho jewellery. Pick up a pair of tassel earrings, a silver neckpiece, a set of rings, and style them with your favorite winter shrug, sweater or jacket!
Layer Up your Outfits
Layering up reminds me of the time when our mom used to forcefully make us wear those warmers and high neck sweaters in our childhood days. But fret not, this layering is all about being quirky and is surely going to be a trendsetter this season! Be it your traditional salwar kurtis, maxi dresses or jumpsuits, you can layer them all with denim or suede jackets. Add a Kalamkari or Ikat Stole or some boho accessories to complete the look!
Ethnic trench coats, jackets, and capes
Haven’t we all had those times when the chills are real at a wedding? But in the name of fashion, we hold our strength and forego wearing those mundane knitted sweaters over embellished sarees or suits! But this season, feel the warmth with a Banarasi Trench Coat, Gamthi Jacket, Raw Silk Cape or Brocade Overcoat. Design your own with Fabriclore’s Silk Collection!
Silver Metal Slings and Accessories
Check out how Sukhneet Wadhwa (mscocoqueen) is playing it subtle with this silver metal sling. German silver accessories go really well with the mood of the season. Not only bags but teaming your winter dresses with chokers, long neckpieces or earrings will help you achieve a standout look in no time.
Pair your denim jackets with Gowns
We all have that one black leather jacket hanging in our closet! How many times have we styled it with anything apart from denims, skirts or jumpsuits? Ever imagined of pairing it with a festive or wedding gown? Check out how Shereen (shereenlovebug) is going all out by teaming this vintage pearl white gown with a basic leather jacket!
Team Banarasi Coats with Denims
Caught in a dilemma of whether to go all ethnic or all casual? How about fusing the two? We love how Shereen did this Rugged Banarasi Fusion look by teaming a Banarasi Overcoat with a pair of ripped denims! While until now sarees must have been the first and only thing that comes to your mind when you think of Banarasi, try designing a fusion look with our Banarasi Collection.
Hope these affordable fusion winter hacks will help you add new accents to your styling approach this season! You can design your own trench coats, jackets, scarves, ponchos, stoles and even ethnic chokers and earrings with our ethnic fabric collection. Do check out our Kalamkari, Banarasi, Velvet, Silks, Brocade, Ajrak and other fabrics to design your fusion winter outfit!
