How To Style Dhoti Pants for Two Different Occasions

By now, you would have noticed my love for Dhoti pants. There are different ways you can style them effortlessly. In an old post, I had paired these pants with a leather jacket for a grunge look. They are not only super comfortable but these pants also add that Indian tinge to your western outfit. The conventional way of styling your outfit is something I love, mostly because of the vibrant colors we choose for occasions like wedding or festivals.

This post is about how I styled and layered my favorite Dhoti pants on two occasions.

After a week of continuous rain and perplexing weather, Bangalore weather decided to act brashly. I and Satarupa from FashionandFrappes had to attend a food tasting session at Dhaba by Claridges that very day. The weather outside made me want to look for something summery and yet colorful. Dhoti pant is obviously what I chose from my wardrobe. These dhoti pants are tailor made by a designer in Koramangala. I paired them with a plain black top (because I have black tops in abundance and obviously couldn’t help it but choose black) and a peachy orange color shirt-dress which I wore it as a shrug (Jugaad no.1).

Personally, I feel this combination is relaxing and is also an ultra-modern option for a casual outfit idea for Sunday brunch or for an evening with friends.

If you are following me on Instagram, you would have noticed that I was in Hyderabad for a wedding. It was my cousin’s wedding and I got all my outfits stitched because I couldn’t afford to spend a bomb on those showroom ones. After purchasing the required materials from Commercial Street, I gave it to the tailor there with a picture of the design I want. This one is one of them. The design I gave him had an A line dress inside and a shrug on top. I selected this yellow because yellow is a haldi color and would have been a perfect outfit for the haldi and mehndi event.

Unfortunately, the dress didn’t turn out the way it looked in the picture and it was too late for me to go back to the tailor for alteration. Therefore, I had to find an alternate solution to that massacre. I looked for something pink in my wardrobe which is mostly filled with black since the dress that didn’t fit well was also pink. This dhoti pant came to my rescue. I paired the dhoti pants and the yellow shrug with a white sheer shirt (Jugaad no.2). Don’t you think all the colors used turned out to be a perfect outfit for that day?
