Stories From East

Want to make an appearance in traditional with an outfit that will not be forgotten from the gazing minds too soon? Look what we have here! This week, we’re living in the unabated and unmistakable glamour of desi fashion. How long has it been since you thought about studding your outfit in sequins? Pastel blue net embroidered in contrasting blues and floral threadwork lined in sequin is traditional craft meets bespoke tailoring. Pearls, ever-so-elegant, have a way to accentuate every outfit with a personified grace; we’re swooning at the thought of scattering white pearls on luxe net. Pair with a strand of a pearl necklace and Kundun earrings and there’s no doubt of going wrong with it.

If there is a trend we are rooting to stay a while, its frills! Oh, the character they add. Add fringy definition on the ends of your sleeves or go all diva and opt for tie-and-dye frilly dupatta to precede you. Solid chiffon inners seem to be the staple and the intricately embroidered net in florals are all the rage. The net capes and uppers can easily be contrasted with a different outfit and serve more purpose, owing to its continuous and undoubted wearability factor. Opt for cooler shades of pastels and for accessories, think statement! Tasseled necklaces to match a net neckline and long earrings seem to be trending untiringly. Skip the bangles and opt for chunky rings to compliment your studded sleeves.
