In India fashion has been changing at a fast pace, however, what’s unique is that traditional wear continues to be an intrinsic style of an Indian woman. Ethnic wear like Salwar suits and Lehengas are still the most worn by the ladies and the one that even today rocks the Indian wedding scenes. However, these beautifully handcrafted embroidered Salwar suits and Lehengas have now been seen mostly at formal occasions or weddings. The vast change in Indian women’s daily wear styles was brought about by the shift in the fashion which focused more on practicality and comfort.
Salwar suits and churidars have now been kept aside and instead replaced with Kurtis and Kaftans for daily wear. The best part is that both Kurtis and Kaftan can make an ideal casual as well as a formal outfit. They are available in different fabrics like silk, satin, georgette, and chiffon and in various prints, bold and pop colours as well. They are paired with jeans or leggings by many and worn as an office wear. When you wear the same with a Palazzo and you have got yourself a completely different look. Palazzos itself come in different styles like Palazzo salwars and trousers, and these are also available in a sheer fabric with varying length. You are spoilt for choices when you shop for the Kaftans and Kurtis. Though they both can be paired with various styles of bottoms, however, unlike a Kurti, Kaftan has a wider range of the ways and places it can be worn. For ages, it has been the most flaunted beach cover-ups worn by the western part of the world, whereas the trend of wearing ankle length Kaftan as a dress was a style found in many Asian and the Middle East. Today they are worn in every fashion circle which has encouraged many Kaftan exporters to design and accessorize them to create the glam look while maintaining its basic characteristic breezy style.
