Ethnic Footwear for Ethnic Wear
Christian Louboutin famously said that “a shoe has much more to offer than just to walk”. A pair of well-paired footwear is all one needs to complete the ethnic ensemble. If the dress is heavy and log, a pair of heels will give the right height to highlight the dress’ flair and design. If you are dressing up for Navratri or a Shaadi ki Sangeet, then it would be smart to go with comfy flats. Or, if you want a formal pair for your Ethnic formals, then you can wear flats or heels with the right designs for the appropriate look.
The evergreen juttis and mojaris
Juttis and mojris complement every traditional Indian wear – sarees, salwar suits, and lehengas. They look great with Indo-western attires too. You can wear a smart pair of leather mojris with denim and a short Kurti combination. Juttis with elaborate embroidery, sequins and glass work add sparkle to the toes.
Peep toes and open-toe sandals
Want to show off the beautiful Mehendi on your well-pedicured dainty feet? Then open toes or peep-toe sandals are the way to go. There are beautiful bohemian chic designs with chunky beads and metal work, and embroidery that dresses up the feet in its couture. With sandals, will adopt the best of global sandal designs, such as the Roman sandals, and give it an Indian ethnic flair with phools and lace.
Though we say chappals, the design with a single toe hold popularly originates from Kolhapur and gets its identity as the Kolhapuri chappals. You can wear it with a long ghagra, Patiala and short Kurti, or even the saree. Chappals can be heeled or flats, made of leather, faux leather, or any other material. They can be plain or covered in an elaborate design. You cannot have enough varieties of chappals to fill your closet!
You can style and pair the ethnic footwear to suit any attire and add grace to the outfit. The type of footwear you choose will define your style choices and give admirers a hint of your personal inclinations and fashion choices.
