It’s always a great idea to change your style every now and then. Or else, the regular monotonous look would begin to turn boring even for you. So, upgrade your wardrobe to include a bit of fusion in the form of ethnic short skirts.

Choose The Right Kind Of Top
Ethnic skirts are usually heavy in terms of print or ornamentation. The key to carry them off like a pro lies in choosing subtle colours and appropriate silhouettes. Take a hint from out top five looks.

1. HALTER NECKS

Pair a dark-coloured ethnic short skirt with a crop, halter-neck top in a similar shade. Keep it plain or slightly textured so that you can accessorize better.

2. SOFT WHITES

Whites are the best option when it comes to choosing a matching top with ethnic skirts. The lack of colour would highlight the best of your skirt’s features.

3. MATCHING TANKS

Pair your ethnic short skirt with a tank top. You can make the outfit look like a one-piece dress by choosing the dominant colour in your skirt for your top as well.

4. CONTRASTING FULL SLEEVES

Wear a metallic-hued ethnic skirt with full-sleeved tops in bright colours like red, orange or lime. Make sure that the shades complement each other. Neon tops can also work well with plain ethnic short skirts.

5. WEAR A SHRUG

Go for nude-coloured or neutral-hued shrugs and tops so that all the focus is drawn to the exciting embellishments or designs of your skirt. Make sure that even the footwear is of the same nude or neutral shade. Metallic jewellery would pump up the look even more.

Choose The Right Footwear

Wedges with a little bit of unconventional design are a welcome accessory to walk in. Especially when you are in the mood to flaunt a not-so-contemporary short skirt.

2. BEADED TRIBAL SANDALS

Another good way to match the print of your skirt is to pick a few pumps or wedges that have a similar design.

6. VELVET SHOES

Shoes lined with velvet and decorated with silver or golden threadwork would also be a very interesting detail to your ethnic skirt look.

The ideal body type for short ethnic-skirts
Make sure that your legs are well toned before you try on an ethnic short skirt. A fit body type is best suited for such skirts. Because, the heavy prints and embellishments would naturally draw eyes to the lower part of the body. Which also means that if your thighs are a problem area, you should not wear these skirts.

Kangana brings in a whole new casual appeal to the look by pairing a light ethnic skirt with a baggy bright top. Try it with a plain kurta to make it all the more extraordinary.

Or take inspiration from Richa Chaddha’s gold and black avatar. Just don’t let the shirt be see-through and you’ll be fine. The golden sheen can also be balanced better with a golden collar or choker necklace.
