Valentine’s Day is a day for loving, appreciating, and paying tribute to everyone in your life whom you love. Not only for lovers, but Valentine’s Day also celebrates the affection one feels for their children, their parents, their closest friends, and themselves.
With shades of red and pink traditionally symbolizing feelings of love and femininity, it’s no wonder these hues are frequently turned to as top choices for the special day.
Let’s take a look at a few of our favorite options for you to adorn on Saint Valentine’s Day, whether you’re spending it with your sweetheart, best friends, or plan on loving yourself a little bit more this year.
The Best Traditional Indian Ethnic Wear for Valentine’s Day
When it comes to traditional Indian wear, you have a ton of options, especially since new arrivals are always popping up on the scene. From A-line or maxi skirts to legging-type pants, you have your pick of silhouettes.
Next, add in choices of fabric options like organza, rayon, cotton, silk, and more. Then consider detailing like mirror work, Zari work, and fabric treatments like crepe or pleated pieces. Dazzling shades of ruby red, romantic hues of lighter pink, sequins, and traditional ensembles meld in together with one of India’s newer annual celebrations.
Traditional silhouettes include the kurta set, Salwar Kameez, sarees, and far too many to list here. In summary, Indian women have infinite options; whether they want to wear dresses or flared Kurta pants, the right option is only a click away.
Here are a few of our favorite festive wear attire for honoring the past while making memories for the future.
Elegant Red Lehenga
Boasting feminine shades of red and pink, our Red and Pink Printed Satin Lehenga is sure to be a hit no matter what sort of celebration you step out for. A full-figured lehenga choli is designed in a captivating chevron pattern with floral accidents along the bottom trim. The same floral print is reflected in a cap sleeve choli featuring beading along the midriff.
A delicate, light pink dupatta features the same chevron and floral detailing around the edges with smaller florals sprinkled down the length of the garment. Best of all, this festive outfit is available for men and young children, making for one excellent family photo op.
Unique Red and Pink Palazzo Suit
Our Red Floral Chanderi Palazzo Suit combines dazzling geometrics with feminine florals in one stylish ensemble. A solid red chanderi cotton pishwas boasts a deep sweetheart neckline and long sleeves trimmed with golden rows of gota.
Red wide-legged trousers are decorated in golden print with a floral chiffon dupatta tying this unique look together. The trim of the pishwas matches that of the dupatta. The romantic red rose pattern on the dupatta, striking solid red color palette, and easy touches of metallic gold make it a perfect outfit for Valentine’s Day or a Bollywood premiere.
Hot Pink Gharara Suit
For a traditional silhouette paired with a modern color choice, look no further than the Hot Pink Embroidered Silk Gharara Suit. It’s lightweight, comfortable, and easy to move around in.
The boatneck top is decorated with classic golden embroidery that’s also reflected along the scalloped bottom of the blouse. The trousers make a simple statement with golden trim stitched along the knee and bottom edge to further accentuate the dramatic flair of the pants. An olive green and gold dupatta is a lightweight, yet strikingly detailed accessory, sure to turn heads.
Rose Sequin and Silk Saree
Looking to be the belle of the ball? The Dusty Rose Sequin Embellished Saree is sure to do just that! A silk rose-colored sleeveless blouse is the perfect quiet counterpart for the glimmering all-sequin saree. A fine choice for galas, parties, and big nights out, this pastel party wear best-seller deserves to be seen.
Each of our sarees arrives pre-draped. This ensures a seamless dressing process, especially if you need to help dress other members of your household.
Deep Red Sequined Embroidered Saree
Some Valentine’s looks emulate romance, but others might emulate a more special sort of feeling. The Deep Red Sequin Embroidered Saree is the one piece of your clothing sure to capture that special someone’s attention, Valentine’s Day or not.
A deep hue of red reminiscent of rubies and garnets shines head to toe. A sleeveless blouse is cut deep in the back with a sweetheart neckline in the front. The length of the saree is heavily adorned in reflective sequins with an elegant lace border encompassing the edges.
Orange and Hot Pink Anarkali Suit
Orange is a great way to sport a different look without going too far off the traditional color palette. Our Orange and Hot Pink Anarkali Style Punjabi Suit is ideal for those looking to get a jump start on the festive spring season and still celebrate this loving occasion.
Made of brightly colored silk and decorated with intricate Zari work, this zesty orange frock features hot pink color blocking on the chest with a keyhole cutout neckline. Zari work is sprinkled downward with an ornate golden border drawing attention to the contrasting hot pink trousers.
A matching border is stitched across the edge of the trousers and the sheer golden dupatta. This golden accent is semi-transparent, allowing it to drape lightly over your outfit without totally covering all the vivid colors.
Light Pink Embellished Crop Sharara Suit
Our Light Pink Embellished Crop Sharara Suit is a great way to make a strong yet feminine statement. This sharara set is an ideal balance between traditional Indian style with a touch of western influence.
A spaghetti strap crop top boasts a gorgeous, multicolor floral design with tasseled beading around the bottom. A dramatic set of ultra wide-legged trousers feature alternating rows of colorful flowers, butterflies, and other floral motifs stitched onto netting draped over pale pink chiffon. The netted dupatta features delicate shimmering details sprinkled down the length of the garment, with pink and blue flowers stitched along the edge.
Maroon Embroidered Georgette Pant Suit
Our Deep Maroon Printed Georgette Suit is one of the most heavily designed offerings. The deep maroon suit set balances the golden and peach accenting and is paired with a matching set of loose-fitting trousers.
Shades of pink and peach are further reflected in the accompanying dupatta. Golden trim and beading adorn the bottom of both garments, with a long red tide tassel dropping down the front from the neckline, adding further movement and style to this already dazzling and captivating ensemble.
Red Heavy Embroidered Net Straight Suit
Who said monochromaticity was boring? Our Red Heavy Embroidered Net Straight Suit is a great way to disprove this lie. Truly one of the most stunning offerings in our collection, this is one outfit that simply just needs to be seen. A long-sleeve red shirt extends down toward the ankles, with a matching pair of solid red trousers subtly peeking out beneath.
Knitted long sleeves are sprinkled with small stitched bouquets down the length of the arm with a thick, attention-grabbing concentration of sequins at the cuffs. The length of the shirt boasts intricate patterns, perfectly mirroring one another with not a stitch out of place.
The bottom is trimmed in many rows of sequins featuring floral detailing, crisscross stitchwork, and a scalloped edge. A sheer tulle dupatta is a flawless accompaniment to tie the look together, featuring an appliquéd chatta patti border and tassels along the front draped edge.
Dusty Rose Printed Georgette Suit
Similar to its deep maroon counterpart, our Dusty Rose Printed Georgette Suit offers a more feminine take. The Georgette kameez is elaborately patterned from head to toe with a beaded trim lining the cuffs, the bottom of the pants, and the edge of the blouse. Sprinkles of gray, golden ivory, and romantic light pink offer contrast and flair, making this an excellent outfit for all occasions throughout the year.
A pair of loose-cut bottoms and a printed silk dupatta make this a faultless traditional Indian dress to wear out for dinner, dancing, and everything in between.
