US President Donald Trump and Melania Trump were recently in India to bolster the bilateral trade between the two countries. From her white jumpsuit in crème crêpe to the lotus-printed midi-dress to the pink gown with a front-slit, Melania was praised by all for her sartorial choices. Special shout-out to the US First Lady for her look at the state dinner at the Rashtrapati Bhavan! Melania chose to keep the traditional Indian touch visible though in a subtle way. We especially loved the way she accessorized her gown with gold jhumkas from renowned jewellery brand Amrapali. Above all, she ditched her heels to complete her desi look with embroidered pink juttis.
Needless to say, juttis have been a part of the Indian culture since the time of the Mughal rule. While they look great with ethnic wear, you can step out in style with a pair of beautiful juttis to complete your Indo-western look too. Moreover, Bollywood celebrities like Sonam Kapoor, Sara Ali Khan and Kriti Sanon are also not immune to the spell of juttis. They all often wear them to spice up their plain kurta or even a pair of jeans or shorts.
Be it about a crazy dance night, a casual brunch or a special occasion like wedding, juttis promise to offer far more comfort than your designer heels. Whether printed or embroidered, they are certainly not the wear-once-and-dump-forever kind of footwear.
