Factors To Consider Before Buying Indian Ethnic Wear

Posted on March 01 2019

Women have a lot of options to choose from when it comes to clothes that is why they are always confuse about what to wear. Designer ethnic wear for women are available in many designs, styles and prices. To get ethnic wear that suits you and fits in your budget, here I give you 5 things to look when you buy a designer ethnic wear:


There many different styles in ethnic wear such as kurtis, suit, sarees, or lehenga for ethnic wear shopping. In this particular type also there are many different styles available. If you want to get a suit, then there are anarkali suits, straight cut suits and sharara style suits. In sarees, net sarees, sober cotton sarees, silk sarees and traditional embroidered sarees are the options available. In lehenga, heavy bridal lehenga and lehengas with less work are available.


Designer ethnic wear are available in many different types of fabrics. Select the fabric of your choice depending upon the purpose of buying the dress. If you are purchasing it to wear to the work then you should choose a fabric which will give you maximum comfort like cotton or linen. For festivals, family functions and social gatherings go for silk or georgette. Chiffon, georgette and art silk fabrics are majorly popular in sarees. For suits, net and georgette are preferred. Rayon and crepe for kurtis whereas net, georgette and silk are preferred for lehengas. Cotton is best for casual wear. You are very unlikely to get heavy zari work or party wear clothes in cotton fabric.


For workspace, select a ethnic wear with sober and decent designs. Don't go for heavy work anarkalis and sarees, it will make you look overdressed. For attending weddings and family functions look for embroidery and embellishment work. In embroidery, you have resham work, zari work, chikankari work etc are available. In prints, floral prints, abstract print and traditional prints are the options in designer ethnic wear.


Comfort should be considered while doing ethnic wear shopping. If you are buying clothes for office then strictly do not select anything that makes you uncomfortable. Sober kurtis with less work and made from cotton and linen give maximum comfort.


Finally keep in mind your budget while shopping. Price of the ethnic wear depends upon the fabric and amount of work done on that piece. Generally traditional cloths with heavy work are very costly whereas decent office wear have reasonable prices. To buy dress within your budget you need do a lot of research.
