Marilyn Monroe wasn’t kidding when she said, “Give a girl the right shoes and she can conquer the world.” Well, new shoes are always a good idea and the traditional Punjabi juttis are the newest chic thing to have. With a plethora of options, courtesy shoe designers, who have revamped these ethnic pairs by infusing contemporary elements and giving it a snazzy spin, one can never have too many of them. The idea of tweaking old-world charm for a new age appeal has led the traditional Punjabi jutti to go bespoke. With additions of fabrics like velvet, silk, brocade with embellishments and ghungroos, these not only add oodles of charm to your ethnic ensembles but can be teamed with your basic everyday look for that extra dash of chutzpah. The tinsel town has embraced this edgy shoe trend to the fullest and we have seen Deepika Padukone, Anushka Sharma, Kangana Ranaut, Shraddha Kapoor, Kajal Aggarwal flaunt some of the most sought-after designer juttis to spruce up their #OOTDs or ethnic ensembles.
Culturally inspired by Indian royalty, these juttis have got a new lease of life and have been customised to imbibe the comfort and looks of other types of shoes like the brogues. Pair them with maxi dresses or denims, and they are an instant eye-catcher and will have to marvel at your sartorial choice. In this fast-paced world, a pair of stunning shoes certainly speak louder than words and here’s a lookbook of all the recent sightings that should inspire you to get yourself a pair of juttis or two for your shoe collection.
