As traditional wear is constantly evolving and ethnic fads are becoming newer and modern, it won’t be wrong to say that ethnic fashion is not only in but is going to stay. So girls, it’s time to fill up your wardrobes with the season’s biggest fashion trends and ring in the summer 2017 looking as cool and confident as these latest ethnic fads.
Here’s a brief list of our eight top ethnic fashion trends to keep your eyes on for the season:
- Slit kurtis
Long extended slits have given ethnic kurtis a new avatar. Bold slits with trendy designs and swanky patterns have not only given traditional kurtis a makeover but have also taken the ethnic fashion game a step further.
Team them up with a pair of jeans, trousers, or plazzos for a highly stylish and edgy look.
- Long printed skirts with ethnic tops
Long printed skirts are very much in vogue. Why not jazz them up with some regal ethnic charm? Combine your sexy long skirt with an elegant ethnic choli for a more modern look. Accessorize wisely, choose chunky jewellery or go minimal for an exotic sensuous look.
- Assymetric hemlines
Assymetric cuts and hemlines are not only one of top ethnic fashion trends of the season but they are anytime a designer’s favorite. It’s time to give your anarkali kurtis a rest and grab these new assymetric kurtis with distinct patterns for cool summery look. Combine them with Patiala, plazzos or leggings for an edgy ethnic style.
- Capes with lehenga choli or saree
Capes are not new to western gowns but combining cape with traditional lehenga choli or saree is sure to give you an uber cool modern ethnic look. The off-shoulder element of a cape combined with the flare of traditional embroidered lehenga makes the entire look very feminine and classy. Wear to a cocktail party or a family function for a sophisticated yet comfy-looking traditional look.
- Kurti dress with ethnic pants
This time do something different with your regular trousers and kurta. Get a front-slit kurti dress and team it up with stylish ethnic pants in silk. The look is a big hit this season and you can flaunt it in parties and various formal functions as well.
- Lehenga with fringe choli top
We have seen lehengas with crop tops, now it’s time for lehenga with fringe tops. And if you’re a bride who wants to look different for her engagement party, here’s perfect glam outfit for you. Match a long trail sequin lehenga with gold or metallic hued shiny fringed choli top for a highly captivating and amazing look.
- Pastel colors, light fabrics
Summer fashion 2017 is all about light fabric and muted shades. We have already witnessed a sweeping blend of modern outfits with traditional fabrics like handloom, brocade, tussar and silk that it’s now time for lighter fabrics and softer feminine designs.
Slowly move over velvets and brocades, think cotton, chiffon, and silk as the trendy fabrics of the year. Also opt for fresher lighter colors like pastel pink, dull blue, minty green, and zest orange for a brighter fresher look.
- Sheer magic
Sheer never fails to charm. It’s so sexy, yet so graceful. Match sheer kurtis with low waist trousers, plazzos and long skirts to make a statement flaunting your belly button and be a showstopper for the night.
So girls, it’s time to grab the summer beat and update your wardrobes with these top ethnic fashion trends for summer 2017.
