Festivities are around the corner. Almost every Indian, whether working woman, college-going student or even a housewife, feel like digging out her ethnic wears from her wardrobe and flaunting them on every festive day. Here are 7 different salwar designs that every ethnic-lover must own.
No need to describe these. A pair of leggings goes on EVERYTHING, literally – on ethnic, casuals, formals, sports, etc. That’s why they top the must-own’s list. Pair them with long or short kurta, maxi-kurta, Anarkali, etc. the list goes on.

One of the most sophisticated looking salwar designs would be cigarette salwars. Stand-collared kurtas, and the ones that go longer than shins, accentuate cigarette salwars even more.
Thanks to the millennial fashion designers, dhotis for women has become a fashion trend. Even thought they look best on short kurta, they can be paired with Anarkalis too. You can add a little twist to your outfit by styling your dupatta as a saree pallu.
Chudidars are very old and there was not a single year when they went out of style. Even though many usea pair of leggings as a substitute for chudidar salwar, it cannot replace the sophisticated, graceful look the old salwar gives. Pair it with a straight-fit long kurta and a heavy dupatta to achieve an effortless regal look.
We cannot forget bubbly Geet from ‘Jab We Met’ and Tanu from the song ‘Ghani Bawari’ when it comes to patiala salwars. This multiple-pleated salwar is super comfy and can be paired with short kurtas and even t-shirts. They make for comfortable night-wear in cold winters. Pull a pretty phulkari dupatta to complete its ethnic Punjabi look.
The absolute straight cut of palazzo will give an absolute no-nonsense look to your ethnic look. Even though you can wear them with western tops, palazzos with long kurta has become a fashion trend for the millennial.
Sharara has been here since centuries now! Introduced by the middle-eastern fashion culture, the traditional shararas rimmed just above the knees, paired with heavily embroidered kurta and dupatta, makes for the perfect outfit for an Islamic bride. If you want to try a sharara that is not so regal, opt for parallel sharara. They look just like heavily-pleated straight skirt.
