We have hundreds of choices when it comes to Indian Ethnic wear. But of course, you cannot just wear the same outfit more than two or three times. That is the only problem with buying Indian traditional clothing pieces. Do you find yourself running out of options while getting ready for a traditional function? Do you also find it very difficult to manage your old pieces as they take up a lot of space in your closet? Do you find yourself buying a new ethnic dress to attend any celebration? You aren’t alone in this situation. The problem with most women is that we have many clothes in our wardrobe but we still have lesser options to wear.
A wardrobe of Indian women can have endless pieces of clothing. Unfortunately, most of these clothes may be too outdated to wear or you might have worn them to repeat it just one more time. Not only are these clothes difficult to repeat, but it is even more difficult to get rid of them because of either sentimental reasons or maybe because they are too expensive to get rid of.
These clothes do no good when they are just kept in the closet. So what can you do? Just imagine replacing these clothing pieces with something trendy and stylish. And with Rakshabandhan coming up, the idea seems to be even more fascinating, doesn’t it?
One of the common problems most Indian women face these days is to keep their traditional pieces changing without spending a buck. So you might not want to wear your most loved lehenga again for this Rakshabandhan. In this case, it calls for some really deep thinking and great ideas for restyling dress for rakshabandhan or restyling your favorite or old traditional pieces as completely different outfits! Let’s see how you can transform Raksha Bandhan’s traditional dress.
Anarkali or Floor-length Kurta

The other way to style your Anarkali is to choose a beautiful dupatta to add extra brownie points to your outfit and simply wear some matching heavy earrings.
Ethnic Skirt/ Lehenga Skirt
Most women don’t like to wear their lehengas more than two or three times, So, shouldn’t we find a way to style them in a more wearable way? One of the ideas is you can style them by wearing them with an easy A-line straight-fit kurta which simply enhances the look. Another way is to pair it up with a plain white shirt which transforms the vibe of the outfit.
A Pant Style Saree
