The traditional clothing and culture of India is truly varied. Being an Indian, there are always some traditional items that you must always own, and in this article, I am going to list out the staples of the traditional Indian wardrobe.
FOR THE LADIES
A traditional dress that can be worn anywhere from a funeral to a wedding, having at least a few number of churidar in varying levels of bling and style is a great idea. There are a number of churidar types available which will suit every teenage girl:
- Long Pakistani suits in lawn or chiffon with varying silhouettes and with lots of pattern and less work, are always suitable for semi-formal events.
- Patiala suits with short kurtas, bright colours and a lot of bling is another option and is perfect for weddings, festivals and other fun occasions.
- Anarkali suits are perfect for the completely formal, all-decked-out-look. Anarkali is the equivalent of a ball gown and not too many of these are needed in your wardrobe. But make sure to keep a versatile Anarkali which can be dressed up or down at hand when functions call for it.
No Indian girl’s wardrobe is complete without a number of pretty sarees. If you don’t have a saree, you can always be assured that your mother will have enough for the both of you!
