Celeb Stylist Tanya Ghavri Shares How to Style Your Ocassionwear With Sneakers

Wearing sneakers with a lehenga not only makes for a great photo op but is also a great way to be comfortable and have the ease to move around.

Celebrity stylist and Reebok brand ambassador Tanya Ghavri suggests not going overboard with the athleisure-inspired ethnic look. So, steer clear of pairing oversized or chunky sneakers with a voluminous lehenga skirt.

Tanya says, "A heavy lehenga with sneakers is something that does not go with my way of styling. I would prefer a sharp pantsuit styled with sneakers or if its Indian wear- a, then a chic pre-draped sari with a contemporary twist or just about any athleisure look, but a full-bodied one."

Another way to bring the lehenga or sari with sneaker combo together is to add a blazer. Tanya adds, "You need to remember to keep it light and easy and layer your sari with a cool blazer to give the sneaker look an edge, and finally use a statement accessory to complete your look!" 

If a sari is the outfit for you, you can sneak in some athleisure vibe with a pair of trainers too.

As for sneaker suggestions, she says, "I think the Reebok Club C would be the go-to sneaker with just about any contemporary Indian look because it’s just so classic and versatile." So, scroll down for her pick of the best colourways to choose from!
