Idea of Ethnic Bags

It is not something new; in fact, these can be traced way back during the Mughal era. Even in that time, the women used to carry bags along with them.

The difference was that in those times, the bags were too jeweled with pearls etc and not to forget, the heavy embroidery which was the very essence of clothing and accessories of Mughals.

Then again in around 1960s the fashion of bags kicked in, mostly influenced by the foreigners who brought the fashion of purse (hanging on one shoulder).

You know there are many reasons to switch to ethnic once in a while. But when you will realize what good ethnic can actually do to you, you will definitely start wearing it more often.

Here are a few reasons as to why should you go for ethnic wear.

1. Ethnic just for ‘occasions’ is a myth.

Many of us think that ethnic wear is just for occasions like wedding parties, receptions etc. But the fact is that it is not limited to just these!

Ethnic is a style that can be worn anywhere, anytime as it reflects your class.

2. Spice up your routine.

You know when you wear the same type of clothes over and over again, please stop doing that. Adding ethnic to your wardrobe will change your routine and most importantly, you will feel good about it! This will be because you had the courage to switch from your regular and boring style and explored something new and interesting.

3. It’s more comfortable.

Yes girls, you know what I am talking about. We all feel so much more comfortable in Salwar Suit rather than those tight pair of jeans or that fitted shirt which makes you secretly check your neckline all the time!
Well, all that can come to an end if you dress ethnic style!

4. It has variety.

Please don’t think that ethnic is just limited to merely Salwar Suit, Sarees and Lehenga. NO!
You see the above three are very broad categories of ethnic wear. Under each category, there is a whole list of styles.
So go out and explore the world of ethnic wear, for yourself!

5. Makes you look stylish.

Believe it or not but the days of being called a ‘behenji’ for wearing traditional are gone! You have to select the type of ethnic clothes you want to wear and then boldly walk in it.
Traditional clothing is a blend of style and uniqueness, and I don’t see a reason to miss either of the two.

6. It’s getting better and bigger.

Nowadays, people are actually voting for ethnic. The fashion world is busy making the Indian ethnic style an important part of the industry. Creative styles are flooding the ideas for ethnic wear. Traditional apparel is totally in!

7. Traditional feels like home.

Why go for traditional way of clothing? There can be many reasons but the main reason is that western clothes, no matter how good they are, don’t give you what traditional can. That thing is ‘a sense of belongingness’. This is the essence of traditional clothing. This cannot be replaced!
