Despise painful heels and bruises that leave you limping for the next few days? With Diwali, Dussehra, and an endless list of weddings, everyday events and let’s not forget our little outings in the monsoon, you might want to look for comfortable yet festive alternatives ASAP! The best ethnic yet modern footwear next in line is our beloved juttis! Very stylish and available in a bunch of designs and colours, this future fashion footwear is the perfect solution for the problems of aching shoes.
Sparkly, beaded handpainted, or solid-toned, here are some jutti designs to go with all your ethnic outfits from lehengas and salwar- kurtas to sarees and bring a twist with your modern outfits and super chic accessories and scarfs.
Sakshi Handa, Owner of Tinkling Toes, lists down some ways to make your jutti look work with your Indian or Western wear.
For western looks:
Start with the basics, team up your jeans or shorts, and a white t-shirt with our floral embroidered jutti Caribbean Coral. You could also throw on a contrasting scarf to complete the look or those stellar fashion gold plated NYC jewelry.
Since it’s monsoon time, few styles you can never miss out on firstly, classic pencil pants with a top and long overcoat or a beautiful cotton dampy flared palazzo with a denim shirt or even a denim crop top, experiment! Throw in a pair of our Chlorophyll jutti to complete the looks and some oxidized chunky jewels and there you go, don’t forget your umbrella!
Throw our Palm Sugar-Sobret jutti with a satin nude scarf and make that monochrome jumpsuit look even edgier.
Want shoes as glittery as your personality? Beautiful Tinker’s Dust jutti with sequin embellishments can jazz up your attire in a jiffy. For your date nights put on a beautiful sundress or a simple co-ord set and there you are, a pretty doll!
For Indo western looks:
If you play by the rules, short kurtis with ripped denim can be easily paired with a pair of our Belaxnig or She is So Hot jutti. Find the perfect pair of fabric or silver jhumkas to match your spirit and there you are, a walking talking #vocalforlocal kinda gal!
Short skirts in traditional fabrics like ikats and kalamkaris can be pretty much paired with any white/nude t-shirts or tops along with statement pieces. A pair of Haruki Fields or Matilda juttis would be perfect for the overall look.
For Ethnic Look:
For those who do not want to go overboard with their footwear and accessories, a pair of handpainted Tangled Sunshine jutti in indie patterns can work wonders! Opt for these truly gorgeous pairs if your lehenga is already heavily embellished along with a beautiful kundan choker necklace set to lean more towards the minimal side of the style spectrum.
The ethnic look of Ursula or Isabella jutti makes them a natural choice to be paired with an elegant tissue floral sari along with a classy piece of temple jewelry for that timeless appearance.
Love your anarkalis with motif, zari, and thread work or you’re more of an OG canteen girl with an organic reusable and dainty salwar kameez taste? Well, worry not we have a power pair that equally tones down and accentuates both these looks. A pair of Theodora or Margaret jutti plays with the ruffles in pastel tones and makes any look very well put together. Accessorize it with simple diamond studs to let your aura take over!
The future is comfort styling!
