5 Indian Fashion Must Haves in a Woman’s Closet.

“Dress like you are going to meet your worst enemy today” they say. Okay. But it’s no easy task. We women never have enough, no matter what we buy or how much we buy, we always run short of one thing or the other. Countless hours are spent rummaging through wardrobes overflowing with clothes but we sigh and say – “I have nothing to wear!!!” Now, how emotionally draining is that, to stare into a wardrobe full of clothes and see nothing that’s suitable to wear.

So before we panic and these moments become financially draining too, lets figure some intelligent ways of fixing them by stocking up our wardrobes with smart and timeless purchases for occasions where dressing up very heavily is not required. Fashion Tourist lists the 5 Indian Fashion Must Haves in every woman’s closet that shall help you step out like a diva:

1. Make investment in some good Solid Color Kurtas:

Make sure your wardrobe consists of one plain Black, Cream and any other Kurta of a happy color (like Emerald Green, Fuchsia Pink, Royal Blue, Saffron-whatever is your favorite). A solid color gives you the flexibility to exercise versatility in accessorizing and going with a make – up look of your choice

There are many Kurta designs one can choose from stores like Shopper’s Stop, Lifestyle, Pantaloons; and places like Fab India if you are looking for plain kurtas in silk.

2. Gorgeous Dupattas

Gorgeous dupattas never fail to grab attention and our markets are flooded with them – There’s Leheria, Phulkari, Net, Crushed, Bandini, Block Prints, Graphic Prints, Silk, Georgette, Chiffon, Embroidered, Mirror embellished, Printed Dupattas and so many more to choose from. Your mom’s old Sarees can also be converted into beautiful stoles. Team one of these with a Kurta and you are ready to roll!!! Recently we saw Mira Rajput wear beautiful “Gotapatti” embellished dupatta for her wedding ceremony and didn’t she look beautiful?

3. Timeless Jewelry

Real or artificial…. doesn’t matter; buy at least one pair of earrings and a necklace of timeless designs which will stand the test of current Fashion trends. So something like Jhumkaas or Chandelier Earrings that will never go out of fashion make good and reliable options.
