Captions on Traditional Outfits
A girl who loves Indian fashion never says she has nothing to wear! Anarkalis, sarees, lehengas, shararas – Indian attires are like a fashion rainbow, you’ll never run out of options.
A kurta is its own kind of beautiful.
A lehenga has the power to make even a dork like me look like a demure yet sexy rose!
An Indian girl doesn’t need a million-dollar couture gown. She just needs her ethnic attire to look beautiful.
As far as a lehenga is concerned, Robert Venturi was right: more is more and less is a bore!
Be careless in your dress if you must, but keep a tidy soul.
Don’t mistake me for a demure damsel when I’m in this pretty lehenga. I’m a savage rebel no matter what I wear.
Eat to please thyself, but dress to please others.
Elegance does not consist in putting on a new dress.
Ethnic dresses truly are dresses with a soul.
Fashion gives meaning to ethnicity. And ethnicity gives us an identity.
Flaunting my Indian-ness…
Good humor is one of the best articles of dress one can wear in society.
Got that desi feeling!
Happiness is… wearing a lehenga.
I don't dress up as a woman: I dress up as a caricature of a caricature of a woman.
I dress for the image. Not for myself, not for the public, not for fashion, not for men.
I dress the way I want. I don't pretend to be someone I'm not.
I like my money where I can see it. Hanging around my waist!
I may not know how to make aloo paratha, but I can certainly rock a lehenga like a pro!
I may not know how to make an aloo paratha, but I can certainly rock a lehenga like a pro!
If I can get my dress on, my weight is under control.
If I want to wear a dress, I'll wear a dress.
If India is a canvas, a lehenga is the art.
If India is a canvas, lehenga is the art.
In a world full of trends, sometimes a girl just wants to wear something classic.
Indian clothing is about preserving centuries’ worth of traditions. ‘Cuz it’s not tradition if it’s new.
Indian clothing is always the best of what I might wear!
Indian Day is when we all forget our complaints about the country’s governments and policies, and come together to appreciate how incredibly sexy our traditional clothing looks!
Indian fashion is a complex language of glamour, modesty, and seduction.
Indian fashion is very unique. Each and every little flower, each golden thread, the countless hours it takes to painstakingly make it fit the wearer. Indian fashion is complex. It’s made of dreams. Like the Indian women themselves!
Keeping our Indian traditions alive… One lehenga at a time!
Language is the dress of thought.
Leaving a little sparkle wherever I go. Literally!
Lehenga is so powerful. Whenever we Indian girls want compliments, we just don a lehenga and all we need to do is simply walk into a room and hear wows and gasps!
Let the Indian-ness show! Life is too short to blend in.
No matter how many shorts or strapless minis an Indian girl wears, deep down she’ll always be a cute desi girl in an Anarkali!
On a hanger, no dress is sexy. It's just fabric on a hanger.
One must be in tune with the times to appreciate traditions.
Our traditional attire has taken hundreds of years, generations of fashion designers, and tens of thousands of iterations to make a mark on the world. And I’m proud of it!
Our traditional fashion is pure. Sometimes I just wanna wear it like this, without ruining it with the “western touches”.
People will stare. Make it worth their while!
Rocking a couture lehenga like a sweatshirt today!
Rocking my ethnicity!
Shine is my favorite color.
Someday I'm going to go onstage in a dress if I want to.
The future belongs to those who can appreciate their traditions.
The joy of dressing is in wearing an Indian dress!
The latest fashion trends take effort. But an Indian woman can always carry our traditional clothing effortlessly.
The simplest Indian outfits never go out of style. They’re elegant, classy, and make an Indian girl look more glam than any western dress.
The thing I love about a lehenga is that unlike a gown, every girl looks good in it, no matter what skin-tone, shape, size, or budget she has!
This selfie is brought to you after rejecting 49 lehengas to choose this one, and 149 other selfies to choose this one. Please like!
Tomorrow, the lehenga will come off and I’ll be back to my usual, nerdy self in an extra-large tee-shirt and glasses. But until then, let me feel like a well-put-together, royal Indian princess!
Traditional fashion doesn’t mean to look after the ashes. But to keep the flames of our culture alive!
Traditions are not just important in Indian fashion. They’re the only thing.
Wearing traditional clothes doesn’t mean you’re old fashioned, it just means you’re bold enough to challenge trends.
Wearing traditional clothes is a way of letting the world know who I am without having to say it.
When in doubt, wear an Indian outfit!
When it’s a special occasion, Indian women like to wear something bold. Something glam. Something classy yet sexy. Something Indian!
Without tradition, art is like a flock of sheep without a Shepard.
Yes, I play dress up! I do it for a living, like a retard!
You can dress down or dress up anything simply by what footwear you rock.
You can't tell me that I can't dress!
You can’t live an Indian life without Indian clothes!
