When Ethnic adapts to western dressing

honestly! I don’t why we keep calling cloths western dressing!!!! I find It rude and inappropriate. Haven’t we seen how the slit tunics came into style a few seasons ago? But wait let’s apply a small bit of logic to why we should stop categorizing clothes as western. If the so called western tailoring of clothes originates in Europe, Why do we call western dressing? Isn’t Europe in the eastern hemisphere? so does that not make the best of clothing eastern? Sorry, I’m just habitual inquisitive. So let’s face it the best of everything is truly in the eastern hemisphere, For once I’m proud to be eastern. Tan skin, small and annoying as hell. Wait, I just heard a news report that says china has produced more billionaires than America!

P.S. I did find this Kurta in the western (can’t kill old habits just yet) section of MAX. I will try to style it differently in a few further posts just to show you western or eastern they are just clothes.

I never really liked Jhumkas, I always found them an over glorified part of the Indian ethnic wear. As a typical nonconformist adolescent, It gave me an extra reason to reject the Jhumkas. However working with Fabindia and dealing with the customers and employees changed my perspective on what really is conformism. One of the rules of conformism in Indian ethnic wear is Jhumkas can not be worn with western outfits. I would ignore it when a customer would say it to me with a smile on my face, but few weeks ago I had one of my own family members saying it to me 😉 Oh my, it felt like a lightning strike my face! So I just decided to break that myth.

Hope you like it.

My Verdict: The Jhumkas are just like any other statement earrings. Does it matter if I’ve worn them with a shirt? not really. The pants were a part of the trend called the paper bag waists (ref link) Love the trend but I guess I needed a size bigger cause I’ve grown fat as of now!

Shirt: Forever 21

Pant: Lara Karen @jabong

Earrings & kolapuris: commercial st.

Clutch: Fabindia
