Traditional dresses with a modern touch

Nowadays, Indian dresses too come with a modern touch like bikini blouses, halter blouses, deep neck kurti, etc. Some can be worn regularly while others are for special occasions. If you are a college student you can wear a simple salwar suit, kurti and jeans, etc. along with some light jewelry like a bangle, ear rings and a necklace. You can also wear some light accessories like plastic jewelry to go along with the attire. This dress code can be followed by females who work in a corporate office. Tie your hair in a knot or bun. Simplicity not only brings out the best in you but is also effortless. With traditional Indian attire even less is more than enough.


Men too can wear simple long or short kurta along with jeans or chudidaar. Nowadays there are t-shirt style kurtas available in the market that can be worn casually at work or in college. On occasions like weddings, receptions, traditional functions, festivals, the kurta pajama not only looks conspicuous but gives a traditional yet modern look.


Hairstyle is an important part of Indian attire. You have got to have a good hair-do to go along with the dress. For instance, long open hair look awesome on sari. Men look nice with a one day stubble and medium length hair in dhoti kurta or kurta pajama. The hairstyle must look good on your face and match with the dress you are wearing. For instance, it will look good if you are wearing a sari in Bengali style and your hair is tied in a thick bun.

Wedding Hairstyles for Indian Brides

Close fitting salwars

Kurta can either be worn loosely or tightly fit but kurta should not be loose. It should be slim-fit hugging the skin. Narrow salwars look good and also make your waist look one size smaller than the actual. The chudidar or salwar should not be made up of body hugging fabric because it can become uncomfortable. You should opt for fabrics that do not stretch.


For everyone

Indian dresses are for everyone whether a person is slim or fat. It is also preferred by many people as it covers a certain amount of fat and makes the figure look an inch slim. They are comfortable to wear in every season. Traditional dresses look good especially in dark colors. Dark colors create an illusion by covering up ones fat. The right footwear also adds to dressing up. You can either wear chic high heels, that is, stilettos or simple sandals. Everything goes well with Indian dresses. They can be hand stitched and are quite easy to make.


Traditional Indian dresses provide a raw touch. They are all about simplicity and yet make a person look beautiful and handsome. They can be worn anytime and anywhere without a slightest hesitation. Be it a marriage function or your regular day to day life, Indian dresses will always provide an edge over western clothes.

I posted my Indian style ideas and suggestions that help others try something new and to have fun in their clothes, regardless of Size. I generally disagree with the fashion standards of most people and do not believe in wearing clothes that fit your body shape.
