Time to break some ethnic wear rules, boys

Let’s just add another little point to your New Year resolutions, shall we? 

We’re going to wear more ethnic aaaand we’re going to make an effort to do it differently. 

The Juice is going to be with you every step of the way, so brace yourselves, ‘cuz it’s going to be a crazy ride. #GetSetEthnic 

Lets start with something you’re used to. 

A textured waistcoat with a pair of chinos that fit like a glove, that’s not too hard right? 6Shop: Blackberrys Brown Textured Waistcoat, ₹2697; Allen Solly Beige Solid Regular Chinos, ₹2399

Or maybe an off white waistcoat, worn atop a bright coloured shirt for a day event and paired with out fav- denim! 8Shop: ColorPlus Off White Solid Waistcoat, ₹1398; United Colors of Benetton Blue Washed Low Rise Regular Fit Jeans, ₹1560

Take advantage of the asymmetric hem line and take your fav bag out with you! Maybe if you wear Kolhapuri chappals, it would be slightly more of an indication that this is a desi outfit! 10Shop: See Designs Navy Blue Solid Kurta, ₹1500; Adidas Neo Aop Neopark Black Backpack, ₹1560

That hemline is going to be your #BestBro when you want to try pairing a kurta with your formal trousers. Hey, now, experimenting means hit and try. 2Shop: See Designs Maroon Solid Kurta Pyjama, ₹2400; Wills Lifestyle Brown Slim Fit Solid Formal Trousers, ₹5999; Johnston & Murphy Fielden Monk Strap Buckled Black Formal Shoes, ₹19800

There’s more than one way you can shove your formal workwear into your desi wardrobe. Try a long winter coat with your kurta. 3Shop: Manyavar Maroon Embroidered Kurta Pyjama, ₹4999; Next Signature Epsom Long Coat, ₹10914

Or a blazer, it might just make you reevaluate all your decisions about ethnic wear! 4Shop: Manyavar Green Printed Kurta Pyjama ₹3999; Next Navy Blue Checked Blazer, ₹10134

A solid kurta is a staple in your ethnic  wardrobe. It’s absolutely perfect for an indo-western vibe, usually paired with denim.

Today. We’re going to try pairing it with camo cargos!

How do you get away with wearing shoes with your ethnic wardrobe?  Coordinate the sneakers with a feel good easy breezy kurta, maybe with an ikkat print for that ~edge~1Shop: Svanik Blue Printed Kurta, ₹688; Adidas Pureboost Navy Blue Running Shoes, ₹9000

“Hey, what’s a denim shirt doing here!?”

It’s here ‘cuz we’re trying to persuade you to wear it with a solid coloured dhoti. Go on, give it a try!9Shop: John Players Blue Printed Slim Fit Casual Shirt, ₹990; Tag 7 Grey Solid Dhoti, ₹750

And if all of the above are seeming like they need some getting used to, start slow with some accessorising. Like with this muffler right here, it’s not too left field, but it definitely doesn’t scream “typical ethnic” 5
