Getting dressed, once a fun and interesting form of self-expression, had become another in a litany of required chores for the last few years. However, now as we get back to our lives and start fresh, there is no better time to play dress up than the festive season.
With a curator’s eye for amalgamating festive and high fashion together and bringing in newness, here’s how you can amp up your look this Rakshabandhan.
Print paradise by Global Desi
There is no better way to say fun than with prints. A floral printed kurta with accentuated hemline teamed with contrasting print on the pants is a comfortable and relaxed Indian look to go for. If you would like to keep it subtle, go for a printed overlay. A monotone Anarkali with knotted sheer floral cape is a great pick.
Leheriya Love by Pink City
One craft that fits all festivities is leheriya. It comes from Rajasthan and is a craft that translates beautifully on Indian and western silhouettes. Go for a fun younger vibe with this off-shoulder ensemble teamed with sharara pants. Or for a simpler look, opt for a monotone suit set.
Playing with silhouettes by Prints by Radhika
A pleated saree or a belted suit or straight-fit suit with a plethora of prints can take over your festive look this season. Be it tropical or floral, try them with no hesitation. Make sure to pair prints with monotone jewellery and subtle makeup.
A modern touch by Ridhi Mehra
If you are a person who loves fuss-free dressing, these are your go-to ensembles. The floral print makes it for a perfect festive pick. The silhouette of the blue – billowing sleeves and ankle-pants- adds just the right touch of drama you need for the festival.
Going pastels with Sarah Khanijou
While womenswear has been dominated with pastels for a while now. Menswear has also jumped on the bandwagon. Brothers, try these young and quirky silhouettes to steer away from the usuals.
Tone on tone by Kunal Anil Tanna
For those who like to keep it minimal, all you need are these classic one tone kurtas that are versatile and a gentleman’s fav pick. Team it with pants or kurtas in off-white to stand out.
