THE INDIAN ON A HOLIDAY
Versatile pieces that make it to your packing list
Smart packing is just one thing that adds to the excitement of a holiday and as much as you’d like to not repeat your outfits (it’s all for the gram, ok!), the trick is to style them s differently that they just don’t look the same.
So here are some of those neglected ethnic pieces that you may have not considered up till now to make it to your holiday list, but will.
THE KURTA AND A SKIRT
The kurta is truly a versatile piece of garment… you’ll see how as you continue exploring. Starting with throwing you in at the deep end—pair with a pencil skirt, fitted enough to flaunt your curves but breathable enough to engulf all that length when you tuck-in the kurta and make it work like a top for you.
KEY: Pick prints that are indo-western to keep one guessing.
A-line ethnics are quite a rage and works for us on the days we are desperate to ditch the pants completely. Substituting it with a belt of course (gotta show-off the styling talent to the T)
KEY: Pick a piece that’s not too busy with its print.
This one is worthy of travelling with you anywhere—wear it as a dress or pair it with pants or simply use it as a cover up.
KEY: It’s all in the tropical print, that’s not so ethnic but the silhouette is.
SHORTS WITH A BUTTON DOWN
We plead you to invest in one of these: a sheer kurti. Usages: a shirt, a cover up, a kurti and a top. We kid you not just unbutton, tie a knot and put on a pair of shorts and you’re good to go.
KEY: It must be a button-down!

CULOTTES WITH THE KURTI
We are sure by this point you don’t need any more styling tips but here’s the last—a short kurti that works just well enough to pull off a semi look when paired with culottes.
KEY: Look out for kurtis that have little tassels or other accents to add a little fun to the outfit.
