The festive season is just around the corner, and we know one of the best parts about it is the abundance of shopping for ethnic outfits that we get to do! Now if you are a parent, you would know the difficult side to this shopping spree routine- it is not shopping for yourself, but shopping for your kid.


It can get tedious to spot the perfect ethnic outfit for your kid because multiple parameters need to be considered- the comfort of the fabric, the durability of the outfit, how much time it takes to put on, and of course, how cute it looks!


To make this task easier for you, we have shortlisted some stylish yet comfortable ethnic outfits that you can get for your kid and make the upcoming festivities more cheerful and brighter! You can also directly check out the complete list of festive wear for kids at Ratan’s website, where you will find clothes that are hand-printed, comfortable, lightly embellished, and made with tassels, handwork, and embroideries.

For Girls 

Kurti Palazzo 

A very simple yet attractive item to wear, palazzos give the space to breathe and be comfortable. Pair it with a simple bright-colored kurti and your baby girl will look dreamy! Such outfits are ideal for dandiya functions or occasions where your kid must don the outfit for a longer duration.

Lehenga Choli 

Let us get our kids in the super traditional mode this festive season, shall we? Lehenga cholis have been the favorite ethnic outfit for girls of all ages for the longest time now. No matter what the occasion is, you can never go wrong with a lehenga- especially if your baby girl wears it, it will only look more adorable!


To keep the lehenga choli more in sync with the current trends and more comfortable for your child, you should get them a modern-looking blouse and plain lehenga.   

Indo-western Gown

A great pick for festivals like Diwali- Indo western gowns will make your baby girl look like a real princess! They are comfortable, stylish and give the most picturesque results! Also, we all know how much fun it is to dress up girls, so you can also look at accessorizing your baby girl for the festival. Add-ons like bracelets, hair clips will make her overall look even more adorable!     


Salwar Suit 

Simple and classic, it is very hard to go wrong with a suit. All you must be careful about here is the fabric of the salwar suit, so your kid does not get uncomfortable. A suit will enhance the beauty of your girl, given its natural classic beauty, and because they are basic, it will eliminate any chance of your kid feeling uncomfortable. An additional tip here- make sure you tie up the dupatta firmly, that is the only area where things might go haywire!


Dhoti Kurta 

This festive season, it is almost imperative to get a set of dhoti kurta for your boys! They are attractive, traditional, and trendy- all at the same time. Because of its design, it gives the room to move very comfortably and that is the highlight of a dhoti! Kids love to run around and what they wear should not cause any roadblocks in all that running around- so go for a comfortable set of dhoti kurta, make sure the fabric you choose is not velvet or silk, it can cause irritation, and your shopping for your kid is done in a jiffy!            

Kurta, Pyjama, Jacket

Over time, you must have seen so many boys wearing this combination of a kurta pyjama and jacket, because of how elegant it looks. Even for kids, the same concept applies- they look adorable and very stylish in this attire, and it is apt for almost every festive occasion- Rakhi/ Dussehra/ Diwali, you name it, and this festive wear has it covered!


The best part about this outfit is that you can alter it according to your kid’s mood for the day; for a slightly heavy look, keep the jacket on, and for a soft look, just the kurta and pyjama would be perfect!



Needless to say, sherwanis are made for heavy occasions and festivals where you are likely to have a large gathering. They are not complex, just a kurta piece that is easy to put on and take off, making it comfortable and looks very dapper. For kids, it is a classic ethnic outfit and your baby boy will look very handsome donning it!


These are just some outfit options for both boys and girls that we think will work best for the upcoming festive season. The only thing you need to remember while making a purchase is that the material of the festive wear does not end up irritating your kid, because believe us, that will only ruin their festive mood!


So keep that in mind, and you are good to go! For more options for an ethnic dress for kids, click here.
