FESTIVE SHADES

A splash of colours

It’s a colourful and joyous season and youngsters are making the most of it. The City is decked in shades of red, green, white and gold and everyone is looking forward to celebrating Christmas in style.

The signature colours are taking over and everyone is flaunting bright dresses, tops, sweaters and jackets. So go ahead, bring out the party wear for the season. But also keep in mind to accessorise well and keep yourself warm in the chilly weather, advice youngsters and designers.

According to Tamanna, a student of Mount Carmel College, it’s the perfect time to wear bright colours. “Personally, I don’t wear bright colours very often. So at this time of the year, I just wear ‘Christmassy’ outfits in red and green. As far as accessories are concerned, I love boots as we don’t get to wear them in Bengaluru that often. Jackets, mufflers and leather jackets in blood red are in trend and will go really well this season too,” she says.

Shamia Shekhar, who works in Amazon, loves wearing red during this season. She recently wore a red dress inspired by Valentino’s collection to echo the spirit of the season. “It was a signature style red gown. The dress is cherry red with no work on it. It is made of just one fabric with a ball gown flair. I wore a Grecian headband for some drama,” she recalls.

Coming to the tips about what one should follow this season, she says, “Christmas is all about the colours of the season. So a simple dress in red or green is the best thing to flaunt. A simple yet nice head gear like hairband will add to the look. Hair wreaths and chains are in trend this season too and wear these with white stone earrings and stilettoes and you are good to go.” 

It’s the coldest time of the year, yet one can flaunt a nice dress with a stylish jacket, feels Neha Kariappa, a second-year BCom student of Jyoti Nivas College. “Every year, we have a theme decided in church and we dress up according to that. This year, the men are supposed to wear blue while women have to wear red,” she exclaims. “It’s always cold during this season but everyone wears maxis and dresses. I am also planning to wear a long jacket to add to the oomph factor and it will keep me warm too,” she adds.  

For boys, the season is all about suits. Vishal Johnson, a student, says, “Wear the best suits on Christmas Eve and Day. Boys can wear sweaters, shirts and ties in green and red to bring out the essence of the season.”

The designers have also come out with a lot of options to choose from. Anita Dongre offers pretty dresses and Western wear under her label ‘AND’ and ethnic and fusion winter wear under Global Desi’s latest collection — ‘London Calling’. She feels comfort is of utmost importance while flaunting festive or party wear. “Bold prints are a great choice for a Christmas party. Choose a length that works for you. Short dresses are relatively standard for parties, but if you feel uncomfortable baring that much skin, opt for a length that falls at or just above the knee,” she says.

“You can go for a strapless sweetheart neckline and pair it with a sheer cape or shrug. For accessories, up the glam factor with metallic shoes or a holographic clutch. A single piece of statement jewellery is all that you will need to stand out in the crowd,” she sums up.
