8 Things That Cross Every Girl’s Mind When Dressed In Ethnic Wear

No wonder girls take a lot of time to shop, to dress up; as they just want to look their best when dressed in ethnic wear. And if you thought ethnic wear is just about choosing the right kind of fabric or outfit, you could be wrong. It’s seems a gamut of tasks and more than choosing attire, especially for women and it’s all paid off when she is dressed completely and you glance at her and your jaw drops and you become speechless. So, here are 8 things that cross every girl’s mind when dressed in ethnic wear.

1) Ethnic wear suits Indian body figure, so if it is a saree you could just drape it around your body, no matter what body shape you are in, and you are ready to go looking dashing and graceful. It just suits every figure, and if you have a nice figure and a flat belly, you could show off your navel in a saree if you like. Triveni Ethnics offers a great range of sarees for all body types in a variety of styles and colors, from Georgette sarees to Chiffon sarees and well the list goes on.


  2) So if you have your man, and you want to impress his mother, get ready to show yourself off in front of his mother in ethnic wear. Dressed in ethnic wear brings out the confidence in you, and all you need to do is put on a little smile on your face and the rest is taken care by the ethnic wear and we are sure, you are not going to get disappointed.

  3) The feeling of pride in Indian culture, to embrace the culture of India is what ethnic wear brings in the mind of a girl. Our rich heritage in textile, vibrancy of colors, and embroidery coupled with fine pieces of jewelry, is the USP of our ethnic wear. Every portion of ethnic wear is meticulously selected that boasts of Indian culture, just as our behavior reflects Indian culture the same way our dresses speak Indian-ness. Tell me one cultural event that goes without women wearing ethnic wear? So whether it’s a wedding, a family function or for that matter a college farewell, just visit Triveniethnics.com and have all your needs taken care of with the comfort of online delivery to your doorstep.

4) Elegance, elegance, elegance! When dressed in ethnic wear and this word does not pop up, that is out of question. Whether it is a pallu of a saree, or a dupatta of a suit, they all sway with the movements your body or hands make, as if not intending to leave you, and always following you keeping the elegance intact.


5) You all have worn your mother’s saree or a suit while browsing through the shelf of your mother. The sense of maturity, stepping on to mother’s shoes, carrying the tradition forward, when dressed in your mother’s saree or suit, looking yourself in the mirror, reminding you as if the younger version of your mother is brought back alive.

6) Girls have always admired the how princesses are shown to look and even they want to look like one of them one day, so when dressed in ethnic wear, they are the princesses waiting to be charmed by the prince of their dream who caresses them the way they want to be   caressed and bring the world to their feet.

7) Looking differently from the usual day that even she is not able to recognize herself, from the daily old boring outfit to something very refreshing that speaks of vibrancy, grace, colorfulness and donning that royal look stylized by bangles, bindis, and other accessories, so much so that a glare at the look makes a grumpy mood go away. And yes, a chance for make up!

8) Dressed in ethnic wear, a girl always thinks of looking the right age, if the attire is complementing her age or not, if the style is contemporary or not and if the style is not contemporary, how to make one contemporary. And if something is wrong, here come accessories to the rescue. No matter how simple your suit is or saree is or outdated it seems to be, if you have bangles that make melodious sounds, coupled with fine bindi and ear-rings you can make the best ethnic look. Not to forget the gajra, they are not just the thing for South Indian women; they look equally stunning on all Indian women.

After this, a few men woul stop saying that they really don’t understand girl’s mind, you now know it a little better. So why should girls always take pain to select the best ethnic wear, guys go out or go online, start with gifting your beloved one with a small accessory and win her heart. And when you go online, don’t forget www.triveniethnics.com.

Relaxing Comfort of Traditional Garments

India is a land of diverse land comprising of different cultures,religions,practices and ethnicities. Mughals, Kushans, Guptas and Cholas have nurtured and contributed to the Indian cultural heritage of India with their rich and creative sense of music, art, literature, cuisines and dressings.

Some of the clothings which were introduced in the Mughal period were “chafan” and “postin”. These styles were inspired by Persian ,Parsis and Scythian styles of coutures which were further diversified into ‘sarbgati’(covering entire body),’burqa’ and ‘hijab’.

Varying dressing styles have evolved due to the changing climatic conditions across different states in India. Where Punjabis adopted the Indo Aryan fashions such as Lungi and Salwars for functions,Gujaratis assumed garments like ghaghra ,choli ,pagris and kurtas as an indicator of their social statuses,origin and lifestyle practices.


Attires such as kurtas and salwar kameez also assumed a special place in our wardrobes due to comfort and convenience of usability and maintenance of these clothes. Saris carrying the essence of different states such as Benarsi,Kanchipuram ,Mysore silk,Bandhej have captured our hearts with the evolving shades, colors,fabrics,silhouettes and concepts.Lehengas and ghaghra cholis are also worn in multitude of events by Indian women to identify with the Indian roots and origins.Churidars are generally worn in combination with long tailored Anarkali suits which remarkably accentuate the body curves and figures of women.


Sherwanis and Pathan coats have been the fashion rage for some years now. These are generally worn with churidars and trousers in occasions. Sherwanis are generally coupled with red or golden colored pagdis on weddings and poojas.Mundus and lungis are predominantly significant in the areas of Karnataka and Kerala which are teamed up with shirts or kurtas as they provide good aeration in the hot and humid climates of the southern cities.



At Triveni ethnics, we offer you an array of choices for redefining your own style statements. Chunnis, Salwars,Salwar Kameez,Sarees, Jewellery, Lehengas etc can be served at just one platter on a very affordable price. Immerse yourself in the grandeur of Indian aroma and avail the best products at an even better prices with Triveni Ethnics.

Style it up the ‘Dhoti’ way

Attire speaks all and no doubt every Indian traditional wear says a lot about the country’s rich culture. There are plethora of different ethnic wears that reflects the beauty of our country as well as the beauty of the dressing sense that we have, but amongst them ‘Dhoti’ particularly remains one of the best attire that India can always boast about!

Dhoti: also known as vetti, pancha, mundu, etc, is worn extensively across the country. It is simply a piece of cloth, generally of one color or shade which is sometimes embroidered with different materials (like golden gotta) to increase the beauty of the product.


The color of a dhoti represents a lot about the occasion, for example a dull white one is worn by the Bengalis as a casual wear and always during marriage ceremonies,


Dull white dhoti

vermillion shaded ones are worn by priests of Maharashtra and also it would be worth mentioning that a perfect white dhoti is considered an official ethnic wear of the southern states like Tamil Nadu.


Vermillion color dhoti worn mostly by priests

The way of wearing a dhoti also says a lot about the person’s attitude. The way it is draped around the waist and the way it is pleated. Like for instance, it is not at all acceptable if someone folds a dhoti above the knees and attends any formal function or ceremony; it is considered rude.

As new fashion trends crept into the Indian market scenario, people started forgetting this beautiful attire and soon it started to get stacked up in our cupboards, unused, unspoken about. Many youngsters often dreads from wearing one even now. But one must always remember that ‘old is gold’ and the fashion industry believed that this time it is necessary to revive the ‘dhoti-culture’.

To reinitiate the use of dhoti, its elastic avatar entered the market. Now, no more worrying about how to tie that knot, no more worrying  about how many pleats to be made, it is more of a ‘ready to get into’ product now. Ladies too can flaunt this ethnic wear in various other ways like ‘dhoti-pants’ that would compliment best with a cool top.


Different variations of ‘dhoti-pants’

Sounds interesting isn’t it?

So, let’s party now ‘the dhoti way’!

Moving On With A Saree

Bid Adieu the days when ‘saris’ across the world was limited only to Indian Culture. With some innovative designers coming with their global ways of draping the traditional piece with different silhouettes, prints and fabrics has turned it into a world known fashion commodity. The world is becoming global and smaller at the same time. Indians are residing in every part of the world. Our culture is getting famous let alone accepted. The traditional ancient form of living acts a fresh air for people across the globe.

The sari has been a timeless classic and perhaps the only unstitched garment of the past. It increases the beauty, regality and sensuality of the wearer like no other. Because of its large surface area it has also become the ‘canvas’ for the weavers and printers to create artistic weave and prints.

To the people of the west; the most familiar and relevant images of Indian women comes from two extremes. The one is Mother Teresa draped in all white with stripes of blue. She is a symbol of care, love and strength and above all humanity. The other is of an anonymous untidy poor woman with infants in her lap. India sure has changed. Girls are no longer bound to household chores. Since a decade they are walking on equal footing with men in every aspect of life.


“We do not need guns and bombs to bring peace, we need love and compassion.” Mother Teresa draped in all white with stripes of blue.

I think the story of an Indian girl and sari is quite the same. There are so deeply related to each other. Both are making crossroads all over the world; and their beauty and grace being noticed. Indian girls are no longer restricted to homes. Likewise a sari no longer restricted to India. The Sainas, Priyankas, Deepikas are ruling the world like a queen. Their popularity is gaining all over the world. Ditto with the sari. From Anna Kournikova to Lady Gaga, Victoria Beckham to Selena Gomez, Angelina Jolie to Pamela Anderson; they all have sizzled in saris. There are many more in the list. There have been occasions when celebrities and royal families (of non-Indian origin) have married according to Indian culture.

The famous British Journalist Colin McDowell who have been covering fashion for decades now , confined in his admiration of the Indian Shervani (men) and saris on a recent trip to Sri Lanka. “It dawned me on why India doesn’t have a varied fashion Industry in the west. They have perfected the most beautiful clothes.”  Perfected or not the sari had evolved and continue to evolve in various fashion crazes. It is not unusual to attend fashion shows that highlight only the sari and the various innovative ways it can be draped.  Over the years sari has grown into huge variety of drapes, pattern, print and fabrics. With denim being in trend for the current and even next season a design student Anubha Jain realized the potential of the denim sari.

The sari compensates for any physical shortcomings. It gives fullness to thing figure and is equally good at camouflaging extra fat when required, something western clothes can’t aspire to.

It adds to the beauty of women and the best thing is there are varieties for every occasion. As a fashion aspirant, the sari provides a great scope for creative designs. As a brand who loves Indian culture and traditions, we would be pleased to take the beautiful traditions forward in any form to different parts of the world.


Taking a step further in this account, we launched an entire new collection of saris under ‘Officewear’ section. They are catered to the office goers around the world. You can dazzle with your personality with these specifically designed saris. With subtle variation in blouse, prints of the saris combined with draping styles; you are left with much to choose from.

Chandra Shah (Singapore):

CCF04162015_00002My first drape of Saree was when I was 20 years old – in Junagadh, Gujarat, India. I was thrilled. I felt suddenly grown up. I begin loving myself – looking so beautiful in Saree. My sister-in-law helped me to wear my first saree. The saree was from Calcutta – Dhakai Saree, with big border and big Palav.

What people said admiring:You look elegant in Saree. You look Nirupa Roy, a famous Indian cinema actress then.

Now, I live in Singapore, and usually wear Dress. However, my love for Saree remains intact. On any appropriate occasion, I wear Saree. And, I tell my close friends to wear Saree.

Recently, there was Shrimad Bhagvat Katha, where I did wear Saree on all days. We celebrate Navratri in Singapore and I wear Saree then.

During Last October, at my son’s wedding events in Cancun, Mexico, the guests were mainly from USA, Canada, and Brazil. I wear different sarees for different events, with my daughter & friends in Saree, too.All foreign guests were appreciating like anything – Wow!

Even I convinced my American daughter-in-law (living in NY, USA) to wear Saree. She was very happy.

We purchased special sarees from Mumbai, India.

Jemini Ganatra (Hyderabad):

IMG-20150327-WA0004I wore saree first time on my farewell function .It was a RED net fabric saree.It was awesome experience for me to wear saree for first time on this my MBA farewell function at IBS Hyderabad ,i also got a very nice comments from my friends like pretty , lovely ,beautiful etc. I really feel very comfortable in saree and i can carry it very easily as i like to wear ethnic clothes like kurties and suits.In addition to it, i am from Gujarat generally in my family we used to wear ethnic clothes.

My first saree experience really made very happy as i am very much  fond of to wear accessories with it as you can see this in my attached photographs.

I think, being an INDIAN girl you should respect it’s culture and yes, saree is the most beautiful traditional apparel for an INDIAN woman. I respect for it and i believe that every girl should wear a saree on our INDIAN festival or any traditional function at her family.

Thanks a lot by organizing this type of competitions and i really appreciate this idea so that girls like me got a chance to show her experience and also her beauty.

Priyanka Singh (Bangalore):

IMG_20150419_150924Oh this memory of wearing saree first time leaves giggles in my tummy. This is when we were in 8th Grade. It was the last n final day of Dandiya celebrations in our locality. I remember that all my friend had decided on the 1st day of Dandiya celebrations to wear saree on the final day of Dandiya. And we were all excited to put our best foot forward. We all were busy selecting sarees from our mothers wardrobe.

I happen to choose a red saree, with pink embroidered which my mom got as a wedding gift from my nani. I got my mom’s blouse altered.

On the d day, my mom and my neighbor aunty helped me in draping the saree, which was quiet heavy. i was a bit cautious about the fact that how would i play dandaya with such heavy saree, and what if i got stuck or it opens up. but my mom said not to worry about it as she had pinned up everything very properly.

I looked myself in the mirror and wondered how tall and grown up i was looking in the saree. i felt great and left for the function.But the moment i steeped out i again got cautious about the saree fittings, and also i thought i was hopping instead of walking in the saree. but with time it got better, and i could walk properly.

we reached the venue, and saw all my friends draped in saree, and they looked great.

all my worries vanished after we started playing graba, i even forgot that i was wearing a saree, as i was so comfortable in it by then.

the music stopped, and the function ended. But my memories of the first saree will always remain in my mind, after that event i have never left an opportunity to wear a saree, be it the teachers day celebration at school, or the farewell party.I m in love with the 6 yard piece of cloth.

Shweta Patni (Andhra Pradesh):

FB_IMG_1428248867923I am a lil overweight so never got anybody’s attention but my recent farewell was d day when this happened.

I wore saree for the first time inspite of the apprehensions of wearing saree on this much weight…rest was history…everybody was surprised and i got atleast 50 compliments….yes 50….one f d most happy day fr m…an it happened coz f d saree….

Unique Indian Traditions!

India is a land of many cultures. It is the amalgamation of many traditions and customs, and each has a unique place in the hearts of its citizens.

One such tradition is treating guests as god, or “Atithi Devo Bhava”.


The line is part of the verse mentioned in the Taittiriya Upanishad, Shikshavalli I.20 that reads in full as: matrudevo bhava;  pitrudevo bhava;  acharyadevo bhava;  atithidevo bhava. The literal translation of the verse would bring out the sense that an ideal person should strive to “become a person who considers the Mother as God, the Father as God, the Teacher as God and the guest as God.”

Tithi” in Sanskrit means a date. “A-tithi” means who does not have any date. In earlier days, there was no way of fast communication, and so guest didn’t have the means of communicating their arrival. So they used to pay visit without any information and therefore in course of time they came to be called as “athithi” i.e. one who does not have any fixed time of arrival.  “Devo” in Sanskrit means God-like and “bhava” means to assume/understand. Atithi Devo Bhava means to assume or understand a guest as God-like and so pay respect and homage in the similar way one would give to his God. This unique custom came about to make sure that no guest was left felling unworthy- each and every person was treated the same and not discriminated on the basis of caste ore creed or religion or colour. So, despite the high cultural diversity, guests in India are treated the same.


After it is understood that guest is like a god then comes the process of serving them. In Hinduism, the rituals performed to welcome the guests comprise of five-steps which is known as Panchopchara Puja. These five rituals from the worship similarly become the five “code of conduct” to be followed while receiving guests which are as follows:

  • Fragrance/Incence (Dhupa)
  • Earthen Lamp (Dipa)
  • Eatables (Naivedya)
  • Rice (Akshata)
  • Flower Offering (Pushpa)


Thus, Atithi Devo Bhava, the tradition of hospitality in India is what drives the tourism industry. The Ministry of Tourism has even made this the tagline for their Incredible India campaign, which is used to increase social awareness, and they have even roped in Bollywood actor Aamir Khan as their brand ambassador.

Stay tuned to Triveni Times for more such insights on unique Indian traditions.
