Being a modern mom and women, to keep ourselves fit and stylish is a troublesome task. We women have a lot of options to style ourselves as compared to men. But having more options usually means your wardrobe will surely get flooded with the clothes which are untouched from years.

No Women’s wardrobe is complete without the hoarding of clothes and there are certain which every women should own to look Young and Gorgeous always. The wardrobe of women is the clear reflection of her standard of living as well as about her work.

Obviously a corporate lady would have more of formals pants and shirt as compared to a teacher who is also  working  women, but her place of work demands more of Indian wear than a corporate company. However there are certain cases where a women feels more comfortable in a pair of denim over a dress/sari or vice-versa.  Whereas some ladies loves to carry sari on their shoulders confidently to work.

Since we are in India, we have so many celebrations and functions in workplaces.  In fact nowadays weekend getaways with office gang has become so common that you need to have almost ready for unplanned trips.

Therefore  keeping in mind these reasons there are certain outfits which every women should own in her wardrobe.

1. Lehenga and Choli

The first wardrobe essential clothing which i have taken is lehenga choli. be it a marriage of your family members or your best friend , lets deck up the most beautiful way the Indian women can. Celebration never happens daily . I try and wear heavy lehenga choli  by decking it out traditional way.

Sarees, lehengas or ghagras  all three have in common, which is its stunning tiny choli/blouse which make the look of a women more classy and marvelous . Whether it is a festive season or a relative marriage function, you feels incomplete if you do not wear lehenga or heavy gowns.

2. Saree

The second thing which every Indian women wardrobe must have is saree.  This is the most  common garment  which every women would have.  I love wearing saree but caring the beautiful fabric of the saree. I had seen my mother/my grandmother in a saree and still that elegant image of her, carrying it so flawlessly.

Today we rarely find young girls wearing saree but I feel not regularly but at least occasionally or for some family functions women should wear saree which will not only change their complete look but will also make them look extraordinary.  Saree comes in various material ,but i like most is cotton ,chiffon ,and Georgette sarees a lot.

3. Designer Kurtis

Another essential piece of clothing for women is the Kurtis  which you can pair up with normal denims or leggings. This is must garment especially for the working women’s but nowadays so many varieties of Kurtis, like straight cuts,  Indo-Western, or long gown kind.

Infinity is the number when you come to Mumbai ,looking for designer Kurtis. To name a few markets in Mumbai like Hill Road, linking road, Lower Parel, Dadar. Kurtis are available in market which even the non- working females can wear as they are the most comfortable clothing .

Be a college girl , or working mom or corporate Boss .You can style your Kurtis with variety of scarf necklaces available in market to look Sassy and stunning and can go for a brunch or a day-out in a mall with family and friends. Every girl owns a Kurtis, now you can also pair the long skirts with Kurtis nowadays to give the complete outfit a new twist.

4. Dress

The latest and most loved wardrobe essential by all  is  Dress or also called as one piece dress. Ladies nowadays is most comfortable wearing dresses,  whether it is short, knee length or full. You will find majority of women or girls wearing gowns, or dresses. Gown is one piece of clothing which is comfortable in all sense whether you are wearing it while travelling or you are going for any night parties or family functions. It is also easy to layer up and it works all year long.

Women’s look much younger and comfortable in Gowns  and dresses, since in many cases it helps hide their age. just kidding but undoubtedly it looks so comfortable and more modern. So this is latest piece of clothing in trend which every Women should have depending on their convenience.

5. Denims


Despite the several garments lying in your wardrobe there are only a few that you like to wear any time in any mood or for any quick plan, and the garment which comes quickest in your mind to wear is none another than Denims.

In this world of today it is the type of style which is  widely accepted by present generation and is worn in daily life. Actually it has become as a style icon too. Whether a women is modern or not, working or is at home, wishes to wear Denims at least once.

So why don’t you? In my opinion each and every women should have a pair of Denims which are classic ones and are of right fit. Take a casual tshirt or comfortable top and you are ready to rock the world. In my case , i can sleep on denims too ,they are my confidence boosters.

6. Salwar-suit

No matter what all you stock up in your wardrobe but there should be a pair of Salwar suit in it. This is one of the most comfortable dress used by Indian Women’s of all age group. You can wear this piece of clothing for all occasions especially family functions. If someone finds wearing a saree all time as a tedious task and going for a Denims as out of comfort zone then in such situations they can opt for Salwar-suit, which is a formal wardrobe essential for indian family .

Nowadays ladies loves to wear more chudidaar, which is justa replacement of chudidaar with salwar. This is the easiest choice that one can make it, yet looks simple and elegant.

7. Shorts

Travel blogger is incomplete without denim shorts. Unlike the other style, this look can be a little formal at first, and if you try out this look with sheer confidence then you are definitely going to rock.

Being adventurer in life forces you to wear this look and you become most comfortable. I love wearing a plain round neck tee with denim shorts. These shorts help you to easily climb a mountain or do zip-line if you are truly an adventure junkie.
