How to Wear Ethnic Wear In Summer 2022

Summers have knocked on our doorsand the one thing we find difficult during summer is wearing heavy clothes with frills and hand work or tight fitted clothing that rubs against our skin. Comfortable clothing is the only thing that we look for in summers. We need clothes perfect for summers while keeping our bodies cool and making us look chic! And what’s better than Indian Ethnic clothes in such a scenario? 

While we rage about denim and jacket trends, we can’t deny how we always go for Indian ethnic wear whenever we want to look  elegant and traditional. Also, ethnic wear is evergreen and versatile that can fit any occasion perfectly.  However there are some misconceptions about Indian ethnic wear, making us question whether to choose Indian ethnic wear during summer or not. One of them is that they are heavy and come with frills. But that could not be more wrong.

Indian kurtas, kurtis, dupattas and palazzos, are some Indian attires that are summer-friendly. And if you can pair them well with accessories, you can look chic, and elegant without worrying about sweating! During the scorching heat, what do you need more than clothes that can make you look elegant and keep you comfortable all day long.

Whether you are about to step out to run an errand, going for a cup of coffee with your friends, or rushing to your office - with EK’s summer collection, you always look elegant and trendy.So let’s check-out some styling tips that you can try this season!

Go for Light and Airy! 

In this sweltering summer, you don’t want a dress that would make you drip in sweat. You want to stay light and comfortable, which you need to search for in your clothes. Rather than going for layers, go for cotton kurtas with a tapered waist in the middle with an Anarkali style  at the bottom. You can either go for sleeveless or three-fourth quarters sleeves. Pair them up with palazzos or pants, which are light and airy. Flared-fitted pants would suit  you the best! 

Also, no matter what the occasion is, this combination is perfect for almost every event. Whether you wear straight-fit cotton kurtis, kurtis with mandarin collars, or an a-line kurta, pairing it with flared-fit pants and palazzos are a perfect choice for this weather.  

Fabric, Colours, and Prints

Fabrics are essential when it comes to clothes for summer. You need to pay extra attention while choosing fabric. Linen and cotton are two summer-friendly fabrics. EK offers you Indian ethnic clothes in  100% Cotton fabric, whose usual thread count ranges from 60 to 100, making them super comfortable. 

Light, soothing and gentle on the eye. These three words resonate with us when we think about Summer colors. So, this summer, you can chose to go for colors like soft white, rose pink, beige, shades of blue. You can check out EK’s Kurtis that come in soothing shades of pink and beige.

Pairings: How to pair up your Kurtis? 

Everything is incomplete without a perfect pair. No matter which Indian ethnic wear you choose to wear , you need more to pair it up with the right counterpart to make your look perfect. 

EK recommends pairing your  Kurtas with the right dupattas - it can be made of cotton to keep it light and airy. Pair it with our white dupattas and stoles, which have beautiful motifs in blue and red. They are light and cascade down your shoulder perfectly, making you look elegant and chic.
