Types of Ethnic Wear For Your Baby Girl
Kurti Sets: Kurtis are essentially upper garments worn by women that are of a straight and loose fit. There are multiple variants of Kurtis, but in general, a Kurti is a long knee-length top paired with a salwar, churidar or even jeans. Kurtis are very versatile and can be worn on any occasion and across seasons. Their popularity mainly stems from the comfort they give to the wearer in terms of breathability and style.
Ghagra and Lehenga: The ghagra and the lehenga are two very similar traditional dresses worn by many women and girls across India. The ghagra is the lower part of a two-piece outfit. It is a loose skirt, usually made of cotton or silk. It usually comes in different patterns and prints and can also contain elaborate brocade work.
It is held in place around the waist with the help of a drawstring called 'nada.' It is usually worn below the navel. The lehenga is similar to a ghagra, but it fits the waist better. It also contains more exotic designs. While ghagras can be worn on a daily basis due to their simplicity and the comfort they give to the wearer, lehengas are the go-to attire for elaborate festivities.
What's trending in girls' ethnic wear?
At present, lehengas, kurtis and salwar suit sets for girls are in fashion. Printed lehengas made of colours such as aqua blue, flamingo pink and lemon yellow, as well as floral prints, are the trend now! Sequin Kurtis and Kurtis with sophisticated yoke designs are also very popular among little girls.
Girls Ethnic Wear Buying Guide
Here are some of the factors to keep in mind while you are buying ethnic wear for girls -
Choose soft, light, and comfortable fabrics, such as Cotton, Silk, Chanderi, Tussar and Net, which are great for children with sensitive skin. Highly funky or embellished clothes might look attractive but can irritate the skin.
Kids often run around during festive occasions and tend to get dirty. This can wear out their clothes faster. Therefore, choose to buy durable ethnic wear.
Young girls grow very quickly, so it would be an excellent choice to choose festive outfits that are a size bigger. This will ensure that they last long and can be worn more often.
Weight of the Outfit
Don't choose ethnic wear that is bulky and heavy as this will cause significant discomfort. Be sure that the outfit you choose is light in weight so that your daughter can have a good time without worrying about her outfit or having her movement constrained by it.
Choose chemical-free clothes. This will prevent any possibility of skin allergies or breathing issues that may arise if any toxic substances are present in the fabric or paint.
Ease of Cleaning
Ethnic wear usually requires special attention when it comes to its maintenance. Most outfits need to be dry cleaned using an assortment of cleaning products. Keep this factor in mind while making a purchase. Buy only those outfits that you are confident you can maintain.
