Anuj Mundhra, Chairman & MD at JaipurKurti.com shares a few tips on comfortable yet stylish ethnic outfits to try out:

Layer ’em up

Layering is as important in ethnic wear as it is in western outfits. A layer over your normal Kurtis can elevate the entire look in a snap. If you are bold enough, try out capes over Kurtis or over a crop top. Go for sheer net capes, neat cotton capes, or elegant printed capes. Adding a cape or jacket makes for a stylish change.

Be specific about color and prints

To keep the mood festive avoid wearing earthy tones, instead, opt for pastels and vibrant jewel tones. If it’s a day celebration try pastels or soft and light colors. Incorporate some shine in evening wear, but don’t overdo it. Drape your dupatta and scarf with a belt or a bejeweled broach. Small elegant prints can flatter any body type. Try to stay away from huge floral and paisley motifs.


Wear crop tops with ethnic skirts for a fusion look. IANS

Replace the churidar with Palazzo

Instead of going with age-old churidars and salwars, opt for palazzos or cigarette pants for contemporary style. Pair your long kurtas with skirts. Don’t opt for a stark contrast, as it doesn’t look good if coordinated incorrectly.

Wear crop tops with ethnic skirts

Experiment by teaming western crop tops with ethnic skirts for a fusion look. If your skirt is solid choose a beautiful zardozi, brocade, drape, or embroidered top.

Addressing the pop star by her real name, the PM said: "Robyn Rihanna Fenty tomorrow morning shall have conferred upon her the order of national hero of Barbados."

Rihanna was then summoned from her seat to accept the honor, with the Prime Minister managing to rouse a laugh from the singer when she referenced her 2012 hit 'Diamonds', reports femalefirst.co.uk. She added: "On behalf of a grateful nation, but an even prouder people, we therefore present to you, the designee, for the national hero of Barbados." "And to accept on behalf of a grateful nation - you can come my dear - ambassador Robyn Rihanna Fenty, may you continue to shine like a diamond and bring honor to your nation." Rihanna, who was born in the St Michael parish of Barbados, found fame in 2005 after being spotted by a record producer and has since gone on to become one of the most successful female artists of all time with sales of over 250 million and recently reached billionaire status through her Fenty beauty brand.

The Prime Minister continued in her speech: "Commanding the imagination of the world through the pursuit of excellence, her creativity, her discipline, and above all else, her extraordinary commitment to the land of her birth. "Having satisfied that, Ambassador Robyn Rihanna Fenty has given service to Barbados which has been exemplified by visionary and pioneering leadership, extraordinary achievement and the attaining of the highest excellence to the Government of Barbados." It comes after a historic move for Barbados, which has become a republic after almost 400 years and welcomes its first president, Sandra Mason, after removing Queen Elizabeth as head of state.
