Gear up for Maha Shivaratri this week with these stunning contemporary ethnic wear choices for men and women…
Kurtas, skirts & ethnic jackets for women
Fill your wardrobe with vivid colours, ethnic embroidery and prints and pretty patterns this Maha Shivaratri. Choose from Melange by Lifestyle, Biba or W to ace your look on this day. Nothing beats Melange by Lifestyle’s top and skirt set with a dark red floral print and sequin embellishments and embroidery. Go for something more traditional with kurta sets from the same brand – a pink embroidered A-line kurta with a sheer shrug or the elegant, flared kurta covered in a multicoloured print that comes with a matching face mask. The simple lime yellow kurta comes with a short jacket with detailed embroidery.
Biba’s printed kurti, maxi skirt, dupatta and face mask is an ethnic wonder in terms of the prints and colours chosen for this stunning look. A simpler alternative is the multi-print three-quarter A-line dress by Biba. W’s ethnic top and elasticated maxi skirt has a mixture of silver-foiled and coloured prints.
Printed kurtas & Nehru jackets for men
Men can add some dapper style to their look this Maha Shivaratri with classy options from Melange by Lifestyle and Manyavar. A solid purple kurta with a band collar and button placket is a quick style upgrade while choosing prints or stripes is a sure-fire way to get everybody’s attention. Pick from the grey kurta with an all-over print or a short blue kurta with a dotted print. Melange by Lifestyle’s striped, yellow kurta is another great option for this auspicious day.
For that formal touch, Manyavar’s maroon kurta and beige churidar comes with a jacquard jacket with a band collar and button-down front. The maroon floral print makes this piece stand out from the navy-blue fabric. Another outfit perfect for this day is the light pink kurta and white churidar set from Manyavar, completed by the floral-printed Nehru jacket.
