The influence of ethnic wear into mainstream fashion in recent years has been obvious with more color, embroidery and sequins being featured in many everyday garments.  Indeed the Indian-style kaftan has become a norm for many women and girls alike. Scarves, sarongs, dresses and handbags have all been heavily inspired by the Indian look.  Even home wares such as bedding and cushions have been transformed into beautifully bright pieces of Indian-influenced art – a delight to adorn any modern household.

So don’t be afraid to incorporate Indian style into your kids’ everyday wardrobe.

And not to forget accessories – Indian bangles or other jewelry pieces provide a stunning contrast to simple Western wear.

Some of our more casual and cotton outfits, like the block print dresses below, are perfect for play or lunch out on the town.

For a more fashion-forward look, try separating parts of an Indian outfit and pairing them with Western pieces.   Beaded churidars can look super with a casual dress.  For example, the ivory churidar featured at the top of this post could be worn with either a denim dress or a simple sundress.

Or try the opposite – beautiful cotton and lightly-embroidered tunics worn over jeans, leggings or even skirts liven up any outfit for a casual but pretty just-put-together look.

The August wedding season is upon us and today’s modern and fashion-conscious mums and dads are looking to make sure their kids make an equal impression on the wedding party.  Gone are the days when a phone call to India to “send something for the kids to wear” initiated weeks of excited anticipation only to result in tears of despair at the sight of some ghastly item Dadi had chosen in her wisdom!  Kids nowadays know exactly what they want to wear  – and more often than not get to select their own clothes and accessorize them.  What do you know mom!

So what’s hot when it comes to children’s ethnic wear?   For colour it has to be the classics – reds and greens.  After all, it wouldn’t be an Indian wedding or party without a lot of bright colour and a whole lot of bling!

Gorgeous skirts and cholis are a must for any girl, especially for the big day.

Doll-style dresses, cut above the knee, teamed with detailed churidars are also the pick of the season with many parents opting for these styles for mehndi parties and other-pre wedding celebrations.  (Is it me or do weddings seem to go on for much longer these days?).

For boys the traditional kurta pajama is still very much the favourite, with the emphasis on bright colors and light loose fabrics.

For the big day a well fitted sherwani will ensure any boy will shine like a raja at his mamu, chachu or bhaya’s shaadi!
