Woven fabric is a fabric formed by weaving. The fabrics are often made on looms and consist of a variety of threads. These fabrics generally last longer. The garments from these fabrics are best preferred to be worn in the summer season for their breathable and sweat-proof quality. These fabrics offer flexibility that can be cut in any shape and do not stretch as easily as knitted fabrics. They are lightweight and come with embedded designs or even one toned. They are excellent for producing styles in garments like jodhpuri, blazers or kurtas.
Floral is no longer a trend followed in women’s wear. Pretty and minimalistic floral design is now a trend many Indian designers are following. You can either go with a regular floral printed kurta, a floral jodhpuri or a floral Nehru jacket on a plain pastel kurta. Looks like this trend promises to stay in vogue for decades to come!
Bright or vibrant colours sure have their place because bold colours first get noticed. However, the art of bringing understated tones + shades of those primary colours is sure to make a graceful impact on your ethnic wear collection. Muted is just another word for grayed, dulled or desaturated tone. These colours can be shades of peach, cyan, mauve, etc. The beauty of muted tones is that anyone can wear these colours and it also adds a natural coolness to the personality.
Call it pleats, cowl or drapes on the fabric, these trends on kurta or jackets look outright fancy. They also add an element of style to your ethnic wardrobe that calls for an unconventional style. Layers of fabric look quite flattering on men’s traditional wear. Pair it with a churidar and comfortable juthis in the feet for a cool look!
