Yes, most of us tend to avoid Indian and ethnic fashion when it comes to filling our wardrobes. We, however, advise embracing our culture once in a while to show off our rich textiles, fabrics, prints and colours. Since we are game for everything quirky this month, we compiled a list of ethnic pieces that will not only revive your wardrobe but also make heads turn.

5 ethnic pieces to jazz up your wardrobe sari 430x550

A fresh take on a sari

Very arty, we love this sari in a lipstick print in Indian colours and fabric with an ethnic border. A very good day time option, this piece is perfect to wear for brunches and lunches and will definitely be a conversation starter. We suggest you opt for a halter neck blouse for a sexy take on this one.

The smart Indian

This one is our favourite and defines Indian bohemian chic. We would wear this one anywhere – to work, parties, dinner and over the weekends. You could wear this one with a classic black blazer or just add on a big bindi to complete your outfit. And who knew that meeting the in-laws could be so stylish, eh?
