If you thought putting together an Indian outfit was difficult, imagine how difficult it is to obtain and match the appropriate collection of accessories. While a dress may be the first thing people notice, it’s the ‘bag’ that follows closely behind. Style your go-to MK beige totes with your western clothing, but finding “the” bags that mix in flawlessly with your ethnic apparel is not as simple as it appears.
1. The Potli Saga
Potli bags are a must-have accessory for every Mehendi or Sangeet. This purse, which comes in a variety of vibrant hues, can liven up even the drabbest of clothes. Kareena Kapoor Khan posed with this little item during the Ganpati celebrations.
2. Clutch It
This is a classic. If you go inside your mother’s or grandmother’s closet, you’ll discover a clutch for every occasion and taste. Want to enhance the fun factor? Style your sarees with a mirror work handbag to keep the focus on you at all times. Shruti Haasan nailed her look by holding this beautiful clutch.
3. Sling Bags
After all, weddings and festivities necessitate some Bhangra Ta Sajda, even if you were born with two left feet. While you’re having the time of your life, the last thing you need to worry about is your wallet, which has been loaded with cosmetics, makeup, and some more makeup needs. Take a look at Soha Ali Khan, who looks absolutely gorgeous.
4. Mini Ethnic Handbags
These small ethnic purses can complement almost every outfit. We love this bag because of its flexibility. Consider it an excellent investment for all of your nighttime soirees.
5. Jute Brigade
This is for the environmentally conscious. These bags, which come in a variety of vivid hues and delicate handwork embroidery, lend vibrancy to the season of lights and festivities. While the rest of the world is making a fashion statement with straight-off-the-runway bags, you’re making an eco-friendly one with yours. Love!
6. Fanny Packs
This one isn’t for the faint of heart. With fanny packs being the greatest trend of 2018, designers in India opted to dress them up in a desi manner. With Masaba Gupta providing a collection of peppy and colorful fanny packs to be worn with your wacky sarees, this trend has become a millennial favorite.
