Eye-catching in reds

Take an elegant approach to perfecting traditional wear for women with this kurta set from Melange by Lifestyle. Red and gold are a stunning combination, and this outfit takes it to the next level by combining a rich red fabric with intricate gold embroidery. The three-quarter sleeves kurta covered in this embroidery is paired with plain red palazzos and a dupatta with matching thread work. The only accessories you need to complete this outfit are a pair of gold chandbalis, gold-heeled sandals and a clutch.

While your SO is dressed in this elegant kurta set, men can opt for this equally rich red full-sleeved kurta from Melange by Lifestyle. The ethnic prints only make it stand out more. Add a white churidar and dark brown loafers.

Cool in pastel blues

If you love the cool beauty of pastel hues, there’s nothing more fashionable than this kurti set for women and kurta for men.

Printed Straight Kurti with Sharara Pants and Dupatta

For women, Aurelia’s straight kurti with sharara pants and a dupatta has a unique look you can’t refuse. The light blue kurti has a mixture of floral and geometric prints in pink, white and yellow that blend perfectly with the printed pink sharara pants. The dupatta ties the two together by having elements of both. Simple jewellery in the form of round earrings and a bracelet will complement the ethnic outfit without stealing the limelight.

Men Striped Band Collar Regular Fit Kurta

For men, the simple striped band collar kurta in light blue will give you a calm and stylish appearance. Wear it with white straight pants or a churidar with black sandals for footwear to complete this ethnic wear for men.

Brighten it up with prints

What would men’s traditional wear or ethnic outfits for women be without prints and patterns? Be the centre of attention at the next festive party in these outfits heavy on prints.


Indya’s Pre-Stitched Saree with Belt is a look that can’t be ignored. Embellished with floral prints from top to bottom, the saree also features a collared neck, bishop sleeves and a ruffled front, while the embroidered belt cinches your waist. Dangling silver earrings and broad silver bangles will accentuate the outfit.


Men can slip into the black Printed Regular Fit Kurta from Melange by Lifestyle and wear it with a black churidar. Let the prints shine by topping the kurta with the colourful Ethnic Print Waistcoat from Melange by Lifestyle.

Add a modern twist with fusion looks

Women Printed Peplum Top with Palazzos

If a traditional kurta or saree is too much for you, why not opt for a fusion look instead? Take a look at the statement-making combination from Indya. Including a peplum top with a sweetheart neck and detachable spaghetti straps and wide-leg palazzos, this pink ensemble will leave everyone talking about your style. Wear this ethnic wear for women with bold gold earrings and strappy gold sandals.

Men can also embrace the fusion look by trying a short kurta instead of a full-length one. The light pink Dobby Woven Regular Fit Short Kurta from Melange by Lifestyle is a wonderful option. Club it with a white churidar and brown sandals.

Earthy in greens

An ethnic dress is also a great way to make a statement at a festive party. Flowing silhouettes and ethnic prints and colours make ethnic dresses for women so appealing. Biba’s Printed Thread-Embroidered Notched Neck A-Line Dress is one example. Gold prints against the olive green fabric, along with pleats on the maxi skirt, will amp up your fashion quotient in no time.

The pale green Textured Band Collar Kurta from Melange by Lifestyle will complement the ethnic dress well. It comes with white pyjamas.

Dazzling in darker shades

Another way to wear ethnic wear for women in a more contemporary style is by adding this tunic from Indya to your wardrobe. This purple Mirror Embellished High Slit Tunic has all the makings of stylish ethnic wear. Match the gold embellishments by wearing the tunic with textured gold straight pants and high heels.

Spruce up ethnic outfits for men by choosing this deep red Printed Regular Fit Kurta from Melange by Lifestyle. The detailed red thread work stands out, giving it a regal look. Keep the focus on the kurta by pairing it with simple black pants and black loafers.

Elegant in navy blues

Add a touch of sophistication to your festive look with Indya’s sleeveless blouse and maxi skirt. The shimmer of the navy blue Sequinned Sleeveless Blouse and Printed Ethnic Maxi Skirt gives a glamourous appearance for these occasions. Pick a pair of gold jhumkas and a gold bracelet for the perfect ethnic ensemble.

Matching the navy blue vibe, men can dress up in the Embroidered Straight Kurta from Melange by Lifestyle, topping it with the Printed Band Collar Sleeveless Ethnic Nehru Jacket from the same brand. White pants and dark blue loafers are all you need to enhance this traditional kurta for men.

Brilliant in yellows

Add more drama to your ethnic wear this festive season with the yellow set from Biba. Featuring a yellow kurta embellished with prints and embroidery and palazzos and a dupatta with matching elements, the ethnic suit for women will brighten up your day instantly. 

For men, the pale yellow Embroidered Straight Kurta and the green Printed Band Collar Sleeveless Ethnic Nehru Jacket from Melange by Lifestyle will give a similar stylish vibe.
