From the morning joggers that you see in the park everyday to the chaiwala who sits outside, everyone has a distinct style of dressing. For centuries, clothes have defined lifestyle, and it will continue to do so till The Brave New World becomes our reality.
Fashion has evolved to become a woman’s best friend. It has become more personal. So much so, that sometimes no one can penalize us when we use the words fashion and style interchangeably.
One festive season has gone by, leaving most of our pockets malnourished and ailing. And while we are waiting for the Christmas fever to hit town, let us give you some much needed quick fixes that can save your day (or night) without going all out on festive buys once again.
Traditional with a twist
Do you still have those anarkalis you got last year? We can bet that you have not worn them more than thrice, and they are still lying in neat folds somewhere at the bottom of your wardrobe. Since they are still pretty new, why don’t you dial up the heat by pairing them with a funky jacket and a pair of contrast wide palazzos?
The entire look is well suited for the Indian weather, and you can forego the dupatta altogether. Since the entire setup is quite wide, we would suggest you to complete your get up with silver or golden strap-on stilettos. Do not forget the token clutch that will hold your knickknacks while you dance the night away.
Dress for the night when you leave for office
The latest kurti designs are quite cool. Yes, we are talking about the front-slit kurtis cum cape tops that everyone seems to love this season. We feel, if you are dressing for more than one occasion, it is safe to stick to a monochrome or an ombre design while choosing your kurti. Jazz up the look with skin tight leggings or wide palazzos.
If you are taller than the average Indian damsel, you can safely go with culottes as well. But just to make things more fun, choose a funky design for your bottom wear. You can complete the look with a large side sling bag and silver or golden ballerinas.
Conclusion: Who said traditional clothing can’t be fun?
If you love making statements, this one is absolutely for you. Locate that favorite lehanga of yours and find a matching crop top to go with it. Play up the oomph quotient with a sleeveless jacket and pastel flats. This is a beautiful blend of the Indian designs with western sensibility that soothes all the fashionistas’ eyes. This combination is a must-try-out this coming season, especially when the clock strikes 12 on the New Year’s Eve.
