Embracing Ethnic while living away from India

Even though I live abroad, the Desi Girl inside me keeps coming out quite frequently and I feel more comfortable in Indian outfits. Since my travel is usually in public transport , I avoid jazzy clothing and tend to go more understated so that I do not attract unnecessary attention. Since the weather here in Singapore is quite humid, I prefer wearing airy, cotton clothes so that I do not sweat like crazy and embarrass myself.

I was not able to carry enough ethnic clothes when I first moved here to Singapore but when I recently went to Chennai, I did manage to grab some of my cotton kurtis and also did a small haul from my favorite place Kalpadruma.

So let me show you how one can stay stylish yet stay rooted to Indian culture , while living in abroad :

1 : Choose mild colors and mild prints.

2 : Wear elegant yet artistic Indian jewelry. Do not go overboard especially places like Singapore where the other communities hardly wear any jewelry.

3 : Makeup should be mild and the Kajal is one thing we should not miss.
