Guest Post | Indian Wear To Go With Your Evening Makeup

It's been a hard day at work and now all you want to do is spend a fun evening with friends. Right? Well, this too can get a tad bit stressful if you spend more time deciding what to wear than having fun! There's nothing in your wardrobe that you haven't worn before and that matches your glam evening makeup. And while that's not so much of a problem, some new wardrobe additions definitely won't hurt. An evening out with friends seems like the perfect time to experiment with your look. Be it your makeup or your clothes. So quit worrying and simply read on to find out how you can do the Indian/Indo-Western look and make a whole new statement.

Contrary to popular belief, Indian dresses are a lot more than just sarees and salwar kameez. With constant changes in fashion trends, Indian wear has also gone through a lot of changes. For an evening out, you can choose to wear the Indo-Western look or turn a traditional Indian outfit on it's head. For example, wearing a conventional lehenga as a skirt and teaming it up with a basic tee. You never know what kind of magic your work up with Indian dresses!

However what you need to know before shopping for Indian dresses is what you need to buy! The perfect evening wear to match that smoky eye make up or those gorgeous red lips has to be chosen carefully. These are a few Indian outfits your could try -

The Lehenga/Skirt

From traditional versions to the contemporary ones, you could have some fun wearing the lehenga as a skirt and go boho! The lehenga choli usually comes together and essentially includes a long flowy skirt called the lehenga and a fitted corset or bustier like top called the choli.

Indian Tunics

Apart from trying out the lehengas, you could choose the trendy Indian tunic. These retain the traditional Indian pattern while reworking the design. You could wear them as tops or even as dresses.

The Anarkali

A striking and glamorous option that's sure to make heads turn. The Anarkali is essentially a type of Salwar kameez, complete with a long shirt/dress called the kameez and fitted lowers with gathers at the end called the churidar. You could wear this complete ensemble for a formal occasion or for a casual evening, wear the flowy top as a dress. You could even use the lowers as tapered trousers to wear with long asymetrical shirts.

Fascinating? I think so! If you're shopping online, remember to shop from a reliable website like Barcode91.com which has a wide range of Indian wear for women as well as customer-friendly services.

So, if the ethnic motifs and lovely fabrics intrigue you then you have to try this look out! Take your pick from a range of Indian wear that matches your gorgeous evening make up too.
