3 Stunning Ethnic Colour Combinations To Crush On Instantly

Think about kaleidoscopic colours, and you’ll find it in Indian ethnic wear. We Indians love our vibrant colour palettes and incorporating it in our desi attire is certainly the way to go. While neutrals like blacks, browns and whites are reliable hues and easy to style, experimenting with cheerful colours can surely get intimidating. In fact, the wrong colour play can break your entire look no matter how stunning your garment is. Exactly why WODROB is here! Let us help solve the dilemma and show you three stunning colour combinations that we are sure you’re going to fall in love with. Take a cue from your favourite Bollywood celebs who’ve tried and tested these colour combos.

Yellow and pink

Team up a cheery yellow saree with a pink blouse and accessorise it with a pair of jhumkas and a gajra. You can also don a sequinned pink and yellow lehenga like Taapsee Pannu this Diwali to be a head-turner at that evening function! Ladies, take note from fashion blogger Santoshi Shetty who’s paired an elegant and richly-embroidered pink saree with a yellow bustier blouse.

Blue and red

Thanks to the contrast in blue and red, together it makes for a great offbeat colour combination. Quite bold and definitely beautiful, you can easily work these hues into your ethnic wardrobe. Check out how Tamannaah Bhatia has sported a rich red saree with a navy blue blouse and topped it off with a gold choker. You can also switch the navy blue blouse for a sky blue with your tomato red saree. In case you’re not looking to go all out, opt for a muted red lehenga with a gorgeous sheer netted dupatta in blue like Aditi Rao Hydari.

Tangerine and mint

Tangerine and mint make for a stunning combo. It has the perfect blend of vibrancy and calmness with the mix of a fiery warm shade and a soothing pastel. Opt for a gorgeous monochrome mint ensemble with a splash of tangerine. A mint kurta teamed with sharara pants and a bright orange dupatta is a perfect pick. If you’re looking for something more conventional then a raw silk mint saree works best with a tangerine blouse. You can alternatively sport a tangerine kurta and straight pants with a mint longline cape for a rather modern take on ethnic wear.
