The dawn of sunny season flared up my fascination for Ethnic wear and especially ethnic footwear or chappals as we call them. This urge reminded me of a brand Jivaana, which one of my friends told me about on our last gossip session. I Googled about it pronto, and surfed on to its collection and it didn’t fail to surprise me.
Jivaana is an online store started with an aim of promoting Ethnic and Festive Fashion across India and the world. They offer a wide variety of more than 5000 designs to cater to all types of tastes, pockets and occasions, looked like a tempting appetizer to me. Their apparel collection subsume a wide range of kurtis, sarees, anarkali suits and other ethnic drapes infusing a fresh approach into ethnicity and traditional sector of the society. Their collection comes in vibrant colors to sober ones, variety of patterns and designs from different designer labels like Shruti S, Idar, Preeti Sahni, Amota, Sozenkari, Renee Label, and much more. They also provide an array of accessories including bags, clutches and jewellery to complete your look.
The major charmer on their website is their ethnic chappals, which will be a stunner to add to your wardrobe. There are not many brands that provide you a good pair of chappals for womens online and even if you purchase them, the end product is not what you were expecting. Most of the websites provide a very limited range of ethnic women shoes online. It can be very well said that the chappals are the topical obsession with youth and other slices of society and I am pretty convinced that it is going to occupy major part in their wardrobes this summer. Though I’ve not used Jivaana’s footwear as of yet but I am very keen on trying them. They offer an unbelievable range of ethnic chappals including kohlapuris, Punjabi juttis, heels and wedges, I can dig myself in. I am obsessed with shoes and possess a special corner for ethnic wear footwears. Although it is not a piece of cake to choose the best one, but I have shortlisted my Favorite 5 Footwear from Jivaana:
