2. Sharara Sharara
2018 is the year for shararas. Going by the fashion forecast for 2018, shararas are going to replace palazzos and become the hot favorite. Perfect for that feminine feel, shararas are here to stay.
Wear them with a cotton kurti for a casual look. Or style your shararas with silk and embellished kurtas for a more festive feel. Beautiful jutties, traditional polka jewelry, and a classic potli would be perfect accessories to complete this look.
Ruffles have quickly become that one trend that everyone wants to experiment with. Be it classic ruffle sleeves or a boho chic multi ruffles skirt, all of this is making way from the runway to our closets.
Ruffles on skirts add a lot of drama and volume to the overall. Look. Pair your ruffled lehnga or skirt with a crop top or a crisp white shirt. Add a statement neckpiece or chaandbalis to take the look to another level.
4. Floral Lehngas
It is time to give those heavy lehngas a skip! Floral lehngas are one of the hottest ethnic wear trends for women in 2018. Perfect for wedding festivities – haldi, mehndi, and even the wedding night itself.
Whether you’re the bridesmaid or the sister of the groom, there is a perfect floral lehnga for everyone. Match your floral lehnga with a solid colored crop top, a flowy cape, or a high neck sleeveless choli for that sassy carefree look.
5. Long jackets
Long jackets are one ethnic wear trend that a lot of women love. It goes well with all body types. And adding a long jacket is a great way to add layers to your outfit as well.
Opt for a sheer long jacket over a crop top, or an embellished/ embroidered long jacket with a long slit. Pair it with wide legged pants, ripped jeans, or even skirts.
My favorites from the list have to be shararas and kanjeevaram silk sarees. Do let me know which of these ethnic wear trends are you most excited for!
