Style up this Summer with Airy Dhoti Pants

The south Indian dhoti has been embraced as a happening fashion trend by divas all over India. I have spotted both bollywood celebs and Mango people sport this comfortable trend and summer is the best time to wear them.
Dhoti sarees, dhoti dresses and dhoti pants are all a big hit with women these days  and why shouldnt they be? They are airy, comfy and  chic, a total must have this summers. Its time to ditch those denims let your skin breathe and embrace these pants.

Here are some cool ways to style the free flowing dhoti pants

Dhoti Anarkali:
Anarkali is like my favorite ethnic silhouette as it is stylish and easy to carry off too but the problem is anarkalis are everywhere and almost everyone is wearing one especially at weddings and festivals. Pairing an anarkali with dhoti pants is a great way to stand out.  This combination is both funky and traditional at the same time. Love this Shilpa reddy creation

 Asymmetrical hem line kurta : 
Hi-Low hem line kurtas fascinate me a tad bit too much and I spotted some celebs like like Sonakshi sinha, Yami gautami and karishma kapoor pair asymmetrical hemline tunics with dhoti pants, super sophisticated and chic. Love. Will try this soon, what do you think of this pairing?

Tips to rock the Dhoti pants, the right way:

  • It is summer so dont shy away from playing with colours. Opt for dhoti pants in floral prints, and neon colours. Pair them with plain tops 
  • All body types can rock the free flowing dhoti pants but if you are on the heavier side dont go for pants with too much volume.
  • For a more structured look pair dhoti pants with well fitted tops.
  •  when buying dhoti pants look for free flowing fabrics which looks better and also dont stick to skin
  • With dhoti pants you can go monotone or mix comlementing colours. If  you are pairing a same coloured top with dhoti pants add a net or chiffon dupatta in complementing colour for added impact.
