What’s the best ethnic trend for this winter?

Our love for salwars

The salwar-kameez originated in the Indian subcontinent and has been on a trip around the world since. Contrary to popular belief, the salwar was worn in a lot of countries immediately after its inception. It wasn’t always together as a salwar and kameez, for instance, the farmers in Greece wore only the salwar as it provided comfort and aided easy movement.

Ever since its inception, the salwar has travelled the world over and has adopted various trends and styles along the way. From Anarkalis to palazzos, the salwar has donned various patterns.


Color palette and prints for the season

One of the most recent trends is the use of earthy and rustic colors with the addition of prints, thread embroidery, and zari. This trend has just begun and is going to be a rage this season. Rustic and earthen colors join hands with prints to give the salwar a very natural look. The prints used are borrowed from bohemian prints unlike the usual seasonal ones, because prints like flowers in spring or rain drops during monsoon are like sand on the beach, so cliché! The bohemian prints lend a very chic look to the outfit. Also to save the salwar from looking too rustic is the use of thread embroidery and zari work which gives it a casual yet elegant look. The zari work is one of its kinds too, it complements the bohemian prints and the colors, but at the same time, it keeps the outfit from looking too dull. It adds that sparkle to it which keeps it alive.

The silhouette for the season

Another aspect that gives the salwar a twist is the length and its silhouette. The length of the kurta falls around the knee with an aline silhouette that adds to the grace of the outfit.

One might ask what is new with this trend as these elements have been seen before, but what’s new is that these elements have never been seen together, they have always been seen individually. The elements have been borrowed from pre-existing trends to form a melange of cultures and colours and to give birth to an enticing array of trends. This trend is being incorporated by various designers into their collections for the upcoming season giving rise to a whole new segment of designer salwars .  The trend is termed as rustic and earthen as the elements seem like they could just blend into the natural beauty around us. Keeping the fact that designer salwar suits and designer anarkalis are worn extensively in and around India and all the trends that have come and gone, we can say that this trend is here to stay!
