Making for an effortless style, the zardosi work blouse, lehenga skirt with an embellished belt and the flared cape will mark you high on the ethnic style game. A heavy choker and a messy fishtail braid will complement the number. As for glam, keep it clean in kohled eyes and nude lips.

Three’s a statement

Like actor Shilpa Shetty Kundra, keep it comfy and ravishing in a three-piece set in red. Add a dash of spring to the fit with the floral embellishments on the top.

Styling tips

  • Opt for traditional Punjabi fits like a vibrant patiala suit or a colourful Indo-Western set.
  • Add statement accessories like jhumkas, pom pom earrings and colourful bangles. Opt for a bright dupatta to complete the look.
  • Choose traditional juttis or mojris embellished with sequins or embroidery to add a touch of authenticity to your ensemble.
  • Go for a sleek bun adorned with fresh flowers or stylish braids for an elegant look. For makeup, keep it fresh with a pop of colour on the lips and a subtle shimmer on the eyes.
