When Kareena Kapoor experienced the exciting journey from Ratlam to Punjab in her patiala salwar and long white T-shirt in the movie Jab We Met, it set a precedent for the next big fashion trend; the pyjama chic trend! Taking inspiration from it, the fashion industry wasted no time in creating ripples with dhoti pants as the new style statement for women. Dhoti, traditionally a garment meant to be worn as bottom wear for Indian men, has now evolved with a modern twist to become widely popular option in the women’s section.
Dhoti pants are comfortable as a bottom wear especially during summers. Unlike denim, which is heavy, dhoti pants are light enough to let the skin breathe and combat the heat. Amazingly, these dhoti pants have breached international borders and landed on the fashion ramps abroad. The success of dhoti pants lies in the fact that, they can work with every body type. However, a few tricks and tips can do unthinkable wonders.
Ladies! What else can you ask for? With that perfect figure, you just need to close your eyes and pick what you desire. Team up your dhoti pants with a tunic, or even a plain tee will work for you. Add a few accessories like jhumkas or neckpiece, complete your look with mojaris and you are ready to cast the majestic spell.
Women with pear shape bodies usually have heavier bottoms. While you have to wear tights with long tops or kurtas, loose trousers mostly do not work for you. Well, dhoti pants will come to your rescue. A shirt with your dhoti pants will give you a chic formal look. You can even try tucking in your shirt or top to create the illusion of longer legs. Jazz this look with statement jewellery, preferably a neckpiece. Make others go head-over-heels by adding sexy peep-toe shoes to your attire.
An apple is completely opposite of the above body type. Generally, apple shaped women have a heavier middle and upper body, but a narrower bottom. Selecting an outfit becomes quite a chore, as you need to create the perfect balance between your upper and lower body. Certainly, a boon for you, dhoti pants will add volume to all the right places. All you have to do is pair it with a dark coloured top. Enhance your look with some fun chunky bangles and a cute little sling bag.
Although women with this body shape can carry off any outfit with ease, some may find it difficult to manage things with dhoti pants. But, fret not, here is a secret just for you- wear your dhoti pants with a voluminous or loose-fit blouse or top. Make this outfit standout by adding a chic and stylish statement belt. Complete your diva look by adding matching wedges and a tote.
With this type of body, the upper and lower torso is equal in its width and the bust area is average in size. A flat buttock and an unclear waist along with the lean legs is what the body type is. For such a kind of body type, layering with dhoti pants along with loose-fitted top is the best option. This gives you a voluminous and fuller look.
As this body type has straight hips and the bottom area, wearing the dhoti style pants with tops which are not very boxy is the right way. Choose prints with straight lines to create an illusion of slender waist by wearing the top which structures your waist properly. Also, keep a note to avoid the square-shaped shoes.
So, with exciting designs, patterns and colours, dhoti pants are the best option to make your summer wardrobe more vibrant. Beat the heat with these amazingly comfortable pants, and go out making your own style statement.
