Go Indian, Dress Indian
Now that in-person gatherings are increasing how about trying out traditional silhouettes or accessorizing with desi elements.
Choose Chanderi or Chikankari: With the oncoming heat, a light-colored Chanderi or Chikankari outfit with a coordinating dupatta. Aim to pair your pencil-fit pants or jeans with a light Chanderi or Chikankari top if you want to keep it even lighter. With a dupatta to go, you can up the glam.
Silk Dhoti Pants: Consider wearing something comfortable. Dhoti pants are not only hassle-free to wear but are also very fashionable. For the festive season consider wearing dhoti pants in silk fabric with a contrasting kurti or top. Since the outfit itself is minimalistic, consider teaming it up with silver jewelry. The look is not just minimalistic but also very nouveau and trending.
Embroidered Velvet: Another tip from current fashion trends is embroidered velvet outfits. Whether it is a heavily- embroidered kurta or a lightly embroidered blouse, a velvet skirt is definitely in. Consider teaming this with a skirt or pants, and just add a beautiful stole, and you are good to go.
Sharara: This look has a timeless appeal. Consider wearing an embroidered sharara or one that is encrusted with stones and team it with minimal jewelry.
Fusion Lehengas: Festivals are a time to really showcase your sense of fashion. Consider teaming a heavily embroidered skirt or lehenga with a contrasting blouse and dupatta. Wear gold-plated or silver jewelry, or pearls to make your ensemble stand out.
Embroidered Sari: If you still want to go uber traditional, consider draping yourself in a heavily embroidered sari that speaks of haute couture. An embroidered sari is a staple in every Indian woman’s ethnic fashion collection. Team this with minimalistic jewelry.
In keeping with the seasonal trends, keep your make-up subtle and minimalistic.
