Yes, footwear! And if there is a footwear style that quintessentially represents India’s ethnic footwear culture, it is the good ol’ Kolhapuri.
With the festive season right around the corner, let’s admit that nothing compares to the joy of wearing anything Indian that’s classic and a Kolhapruri chappal speaks volumes about our country’s rich culture and matchless artisanship.
A far more luxe version of your bedroom slippers, mules are best known for their suave silhouettes and versatility they add to your look. Open from the back, the mules offer enough breathability for them to be considered a summer staple. Perfect additions to your summer linens, mules look great teamed with relaxed pants and one-pocket cotton shirts, and go just as well with ethnic wear.
On top of our list are of course good ‘ol brogues. No matter how simple your outfit (we are talking white shirt, black/grey/blue pants), you can absolutely never go wrong with them, nope. Wear them with a pair of well-tailored cigarette pants with a fitted shirt tucked into it, and throw on a blazer on top.
