Ethnic clothes were somewhere reduced to wearing them on special occasions. But their comfort, grace, and the vast scope that they offer to styling need to be reclaimed. A lot of Instagram bloggers don ravishing ethnic wear by pairing them up with silver junk jewellery, or going Indo-Western. Here's to impeccable desi aesthetics-
With whites as her one true love and an impeccable penchant for styling, Ankita's collection exists to our envy. She usually styles crop-tops or Victorian-lace tops with simple yet graceful sarees and captures them in her signature neck-selfies.
Although an online store, this Insta account will make you lust for soothing natual fabrics, that are a treat for the eyes. You can just scroll all day through their ravishing collection of sarees paired with statement silver jewellery.
