Ethnic wear is something that will never go out of fashion. There is something uniquely elegant and classy about it. A rustic charm. The young fashionistas of today take pride in wearing their favourite ‘kurtas’ and putting on the right pair of ‘jhumkis’. So for all those of you who want to quirk up their looks the Indian way, here are a few tips to do it right.

  1. Any festive wear is incomplete without a touch of Zari. Subtle embroideries in gold thread make for stunning festive wear.
