These  are some of  the  Indian wardrobe design ideas which can be creatively used to  upgrade your ward robe.

 Ethnic and day to day Kurtas

Bright kurtas in light fabrics, fun prints and chikan embroidery are a must in your ethnic wear closet. Pair them appropriately with jeans, leggings or patialas to stay comfortably cool on a hot day. An easy kurta will always help you look fresh on those days when you feel like you have absolutely nothing to wear.

The kurtas, casual or chic, paired with mix and match churidars, pants, Patiala salwar or jeans can really enlarge your wardrobe by increasing the number of dresses that you can try or experiment with. Make sure you have a good and varied collection of kurtas based on fabric and style. Nice mix of silk, georgette, cotton, crepes, linen and cotton silk should complete your wardrobe, making you ever ready to step out perfectly dressed.

 Basic Leggings

Leggings are versatile. Black and white leggings are must-haves. Besides that make sure you have some basic colors that go well with your kurta collection. There are different types of legging for e.g., ankle length or long leggings. These days you get a lot of combo legging packs on Amazon, Flipkart etc., which are extremely cost effective with different vibrant colors and which can be mixed and matched with different kurtas.

 A Heavy Dupatta

A dupatta with heavy embroidery or a patch work is a must to have in your wardrobe. You can wear it with a single color salwar-kameez to add richness and style. A heavy dupatta adds eloquence and style to a simple salwar kameez.

Palazzo pants or Dhoti Pants or Parallel straight pants

A harem pant or Palazzo pant will give both a casual as well as a formal look. You can team it up with a short or long kurta. You can pair a good kurta with a stylish dhoti pant to give a different refreshing look.

Ankle length straight pants can be paired with straight fit kurtas to give a pleasant formal look. Cotton palazzos are more comfortable and trendy. You can also pair straight parallels with kaftans or long kurtas. If you are tall then you can wear nice ethnic flats else slight heels.

 Black/Golden/Silver Sequin Blouse

A Plain saree can look stunning with a gold sequined blouse. These plain black or golden or silver sequined blouses go well with any plain or printed sarees. The saree colors that work best with these blouses are given below :
Black blouse : Black, Red, Yellow, Silver, Magenta, White, Blue.

 Multipurpose Patiala salwars

Patiala salwars can be worn as formal as well as casual wear.
A bright Patiala salwar is a versatile piece in your wardrobe. It goes well with a long shirt, short kurta, kurta with jacket and also a plain long t-shirt.

 A Classy Clutch or Purse

 Make sure the size of your purse or clutch is perfect to accommodate your basic cosmetics, phone, money and car keys. It should look classy as well as useful.

Artificial Jewellery

Silver jewellery can work magic with your look. Traditional jewellery gives you the right kind of sparkle you need to complete your look in your Indian best. A traditional kundan set can complement your ethnic look. Pair it with a beautiful sari for a graceful and elegant look.

If you have a plain salwar kameez without any embroidery then you can just go in for dangling earrings or jhumkas. Tribal style thin silver anklets go well with long skirts or straight pants. Beaded necklaces give a different style statement.


Accessories like ethnic bags, footwear, bangles, belts and stoles give a different look each time you mix and match them. You can a have a collection of these just to add a special touch to your wardrobe.
