Why are we forgetting ethnics?

Its been a long time since I wrote something. Today I’m going to express my opinion about ethnic dresses. Starting with the current scenario (I’m assuming everyone knows what ethnic means! πŸ˜€ ) , today most of the working women and students have chosen western wear over ethnics and we should forget about men because almost all men do not wear ethnic (Again, I live in a metropolitan city so my opinions are restricted). People have resorted to western wear because these are more comfortable to wear which is absolutely true.Β 

Many people find ethnic uncomfortable and keep their ethnic wear for festivals, family functions and marriages.

This season of festivals with Durga pooja and Dusshera, and Deepawali around the corner I’m thinking of rekindling my friendship with ethnics. If you are thinking why, what’s the need, here I’ll give you reasons why.

  1. First and foremost, ethnics are beautiful.
  2. They make us stick to our culture, tradition and values.
  3. We live in a country rich of silk, cotton and other different fabrics. Our small scale industries are filled with dedicated workers who are very talented in embroideries and other works of art on clothes.
  4. Ethnics compliment a woman’s beauty and women have so many options like sari, salwar kameez, lehenga choli, ghagra etc.
  5. Sari is eternally beautiful and it will never go out of style. It can make any woman look gorgeous.

But can we neglect the fact that jeans, shorts and skirts are really more comfortable on a daily basis than ethnics? No. They are easy to wear, save our time in the morning, in this fast and hectic life they assist us by taking less of our efforts.

It is true that ethnics are utterly beautiful and it is also true that wearing them regularly is a difficult task. A perfect solution will be a blend of ethnic and western and giving your ethnics clothes living in your closet another Β chance of revival πŸ™‚

  1. Can’t really comment on pros and cons of wearing ethnics but I do believe that women looks more beautiful wearing them more than wearing anything else. It adds extra charm to their beauty. πŸ™‚ I simply like it when girls wear ethnics and may be that is why they catch my attention quicker than anyone else. πŸ˜› On separate note, Miss Kriti, you are looking gorgeous in the picture above. πŸ™‚

  2. I guess that is restricted to cities such as Delhi, Mumbai, etc. Where I live, we frequently see people wearing traditional clothes such as salwaar kameez, kurta pyjama, etc. And I’m not talking about some backward area or referring to only the 40+. I’m talking about a college where girls dress as if they’re about to walk the ramp. And they don’t mind whether it’s western or Indian wear. But, yes, the focus has definitely made the ethnic wear lose the limelight. Happy that you touched upon the topic! Traditional clothes are nothing to shy away from.
