How to Wear Ethnic Pieces: Traditional Afghan Dress Turned ChicTuesday, January 31, 2012
At first glance, it may not look like there's much you can do with such a traditional dress. But there's always fashion inspiration for anyone looking beyond the surface. :) I was shopping in Karachi one day when I came across a festival celebrating the culture and heritage of Pakistan's Northern Areas. There, I saw this multi-colored embroidered folk dress and it was love at first sight! I loved the colors and pattern and knew it would make a great addition to my wardrobe. It might not look very practical or even wearable, but I tempered down the overly-ethnic aspects with a neutral bag and shoes. Finally, I topped off the look with a cream suit jacket to add some extra polish. And voila! You have an ensemble perfect even for a day at the office!
