Short Kurta – Men
When it comes to the ethnic outfits for men for the festive season, kurta is probably the first – sometimes the only – thing that comes across our mind. Gone are the days when kurta used to be the choice of Indian men only.
Nowadays, kurta has been a part of almost every men’s wardrobe across the globe.
Moreover, with the globalisation of kurta, the designers and artists have twisted and tweaked kurtas to make it more sophisticated and stylish. One of those alterations has given us the epically elegant outfit known as the short kurta. Short kurta keeps the conventional touch of the traditional kurta and looks more stylish at any function or festive season.
Cape or Poncho with Lehenga – Women
Just like kurta for men, when we talk about the ethnic outfits for women, a lehenga is probably the first thing that we think of. However, traditional lehenga choli is some what outdated now sorry girls, if you are among those who love the combo of lehenga choli. Nevertheless, no worries, we are providing you with a contemporary blend of lehenga.
This festive season, let us replace the traditional choli with cape or poncho and wear it with lehenga. You may also go for a plum skirt and pair it off with embroidered cape or poncho. To give it an elegant modern touch, you may choose not to carry dupatta with it, and it will still keep the ethnicity of the dress intact.
Sassy Off-Shoulder Women
Off-shoulder outfits never go out of trend! Therefore, this season, we would like you to include the traditional off-shoulder attire with sassy designs in your wardrobe.
The best thing about off-shoulder dresses is that you will have plenty of designs and patterns to choose from. So, if you are kind of a finicky person who wants to have a lot of options for a particular dress, off-shoulder outfit for this festive season would be an excellent choice for you.
Nehru Jacket – Men
Nehru Jacket is among the most adaptable outfits for men that goes with almost everyfestival and event irrespective of how grand or small the celebration is.
The best advantage of Nehru Jacket is that you can pair it off with anything including

The additional benefit that Nehru Jackets possess is that they hide the belly splendidly without upsetting outfit impression. No matter if you are a young boy or a middle-aged man, Nehru Jacket suits everyone equally.
Jacket up Your Outfit – Women
As we, earlier in the article, talked about the significance of lehenga in the ethnic outfits for women to wear in the festive season, let us, again, tweak this traditional dress with a graceful jacket.
This festive season, pair off the stylish lehenga with a crop top, or you may have choli as well, and put on a classy jacket on top of it.
The traditional lehenga with a jacket on top would give you a contemporary look with keeping the ethnic touch of the outfit intact. Along with it, flaunt your long jhumkis and astound everyone around you.
Jodhpuri Suit – Men
