With colour blocking and neon colours being in vogue, everybody’s wardrobe is already starting to fill with attires of striking shades. And the festive season is here! It’s finally time to wear all those bright coloured clothes lying in your closet. Some may always consider wearing bright colours and patterns as a challenge. But, once you know how to pair these colours with perfect neutrals, you’ll never have to worry about going overboard with it. I personally love wearing bold colours and prints as they bring life to your outfit and make a statement that resonates with your personality.
Ethnic clothing is just one of the things that distinguish one part of India from the other. This time, I thought of giving my love for the contrasting tones a traditional touch by putting together an ensemble that will definitely make heads turn to you. When it comes to pulling off a chic desi look, ask any Indian girl for her first choice and you will get “Lehenga” as an answer. That’s how much we girls love this humble skirt with a great deal of flare.
In this look, I have coupled a subtle peach coloured Lehenga (with minimal detailing expect for the border) and a well fitted pink choli with intricate gold embroidery. Of course, I had to go for a Pink and Gold combination. Coz why not? It makes your outfit look Royal with a very little work on it. For the choli, I wanted to go for a motif that will not only give a heads up to the cultural aspect but also add a lot of elegance to the overall look. And what better than the “Taj Mahal” itself whenever you think about India and elegance. Even a simple silhouette of the Taj Mahal is unique in its perfect symmetry and still manages to put us all in an awe. Enough said! So the detailed golden Zardozi embroidery that you see on the Choli just makes the outfit a little more dreamy and bold at the same time.
You don’t have to be a bride to flaunt lehengas. With the right amount of prints or detailings, an attire like this is just what you need to sport an effortless look at the Indian Weddings and all other types of Desi Gala. Just remember this as a thumb rule- The right amount of bright colours are always in vogue.
Complete the entire look with your choice of accessories. Try to keep it toned down. You don’t want to overpower the colours already there in the outfit. Opt for crystals or even small- sized pearl accessories and you’re good to go.
