The last time you wore a dress was probably in your teens, in school or possibly, college. Typically, it seems, once women enter the work life or get married, they choose to stick to the familiarity of Indian wear such as salwar kameezes or churidar kurtas, and for special occasions, sarees.
This is probably because these are deemed more acceptable’ and help one to blend in, rather than stand apart. However, in recent times, Indian fashion has also become more open to global trends and women are looking at options to be more fashionable and be trendsetters. Stores now display women’s dresses, and you can buy women dresses online also.
Let’s see what kind of dresses are out there and what would be suitable for you.
