Whether you're exploring ancient temples or bustling bazaars, modesty is the name of the game. It is advised to opt for outfits that cover your shoulders, knees, and midriff to show respect for local customs and traditions. India is a vast country with diverse cultures and traditions, and dress codes can vary widely from one region to another. For example, in North India, women commonly wear sarees or salwar kameez, while in South India, traditional attire may include sarees or pavada davani. It's a good idea to research the specific dress norms of the region you plan to visit to ensure you dress appropriately. Indian festivals, weddings, and other special occasions often require dressing up in traditional attire. For example, attending a wedding may require wearing a saree or salwar kameez for women, while men may wear a kurta pajama or sherwani. You can opt for a contemporary saree like Lashkara’s Light Pink White Floral Printed Saree or White and Blue Floral Printed Saree. It's a chance to embrace the vibrant colors and intricate designs of Indian fashion while celebrating with the locals.
