While there is no dearth of ethnic brands and designers to help us ace the desi look; it always helps to look around for some inspiration. And when it comes to fashion inspiration, trust our Bollywood celebs to be the best source.
Scroll down as we curate (in pictures) some of the Bollywood’s best ethnic looks from the recent past…
Dia Mirza has been endorsing sustainable fabrics for a while now and in this ensemble from Anita Dongre’s Grassroot, she is every bit an inspiration for us to dress sustainable this Independence Day.
Kareena Kapoor Khan
Kareena wore this neo-ethnic ensemble with a collared kurta and pants from Gulabo by Abu Jani and Sandeep Khosla for one of her promotion events and we think it is a very steal worthy look, especially for Independence Day.
Alia Bhatt is a known for her young, peppy and bright sartorial choices but recently for the promotions of her movie Raazi, Alia chose to go all ethnic and we must say she did it with much panache. In this look she is seen wearing an outfit by Anita Dongre, and we think it would work well for our Independence Day outing as well.
Konkana Sen Sharma
Koko’s love of Anavila sarees is no secret. She has always been a staunch supporter of sustainable, handloom fabrics; and is often seen flaunting khadi, linens and silk ensembles. Well we are in complete awe of her sustainable style statement and think it makes for a perfect inspiration for Independence Day dressing.
Vidya Balan is the brand ambassador of hand-woven sarees and we think most of her sari looks can double up as the perfect inspo for ethnic dressing.
