It is a bright and beautiful, sunny, Monday! Another week of routine, another week of work wear to decide! We usually decide on Sunday night and layout the outfits for next week.
It’s a 365 days job, so its but obvious that formal outfits will get repeated; the problem is not wearing it again and again – the real struggle is to keep the fashion statement lively at workplace without burning a hole in the pocket every month! 🙂
So, this week we decided to put together our ethnic and sustainable options for formal wear, other than our beloved basic kurti!
COTTON PEPLUM TOP & LINEN PANTS
Beating the heat in style! Who said peplum tops cannot be of Ethnic variety! We found ours while shopping at FabIndia Indigo collection last year. This top can be worn over straight cut trousers for work or a straight fit skirt.
BASIC KHADI DRESSES
The best thing about khadi/linen/cotton dresses is that they have a relaxed fitting! The colors will always be either pastels or subdued making them a perfect outfit for office environment. Oh and you can wear them in any weather at any time of the day, thereby making it a year long work wear option. 🙂

3 shades of Grey!
We love to keep our colors basic for workspaces and once in a while, you can actually try out a monotone outfit. It looks great, subtle and chic. My sister paired this up for the for first time and voila it worked! 🙂
Ethnic with a western twist
If you have matching trousers and kurti, you can put the two together and make a lovely monochrome outfit just like this!
HEMP OK PLEASE!
Did you know we have dresses made of Hemp!!! 😀 This was one of our best finds at the Kalaghoda 2017 festival! ❤
This is truly a sustainable option of clothing because with every wash the feel and touch of the dress gets softer and richer! One of the many amazing qualities that a hemp plant beholds! 😛

COMFORT IS WEARING A LINEN OR A COTTON DRESS!
Another one of our forever favourites for office wear is Linen and Cotton dresses!!! ❤ The material is all about subtle and comfort. These colors and designs don’t fade away easy and a true cotton/linen stays intact for the longest!!!
Dresses – The Label Life
ETHNIC SHIRTS and SKIRTS!
If you have any ethnic shirts or skirts tucked away in your wardrobe, dig them out and pair with your routine khakhi chinos or trousers!
