Make a statement this festive season

Make a statement this festive season

The beats are good, your feet hurt from dancing and the drinks are flowing. This means one thing... it’s festival season!

There are many things to love about the festival season, but a huge part of the fun is in planning the outfit.

Whether you just want that pure fire Instagram photo or you want to be the belle of the ball, everyone wants to wear something different and trendy. Contemporary fashion is getting popular in recent times and is a total saviour, especially when you are stuck in a fashion rut and need a touch of that ‘extra something’ in your simple outfits.

Here are few quick red carpet worthy ideas you can take inspiration from for the coming season.

Jumpsuit, colourful dupatta, heels, statement earrings

Jumpsuits are such a versatile piece of clothing; wearing it as a suit could be one of the most innovative ways to style it. You get the comfort of a jumpsuit and the beauty of a suit at the same time. It’s simple; find a matching dupatta, and jewelry and voila! It’s that easy.

Everything shiny and shimmering

For a sundowner, wear something shimmery that works well when the night falls. Go for a beaded tassel top, statement flared skirt or pencil pants. If you want to showcase your sophistication, then try an all over metallic dress look to brighten up the space. Add a dupatta, jhumka and jootis for that ethnic touch and you are all set for the evening.

Dress kurta and silver

With more and more designers coming up with ethnic kurtas that can be worn as dresses, you are sure to find a favourite for the day. Draped or pannelled floor length kurtas you can be worn as a single piece and takes much less effort to accessorise. Pair ethnic jewellery to complete the look.

Shirts and lehenga

Celebrities have been sporting the white shirt and heavy lehenga skirt look a lot these days. It’s a versatile way to wear the lehenga that you usually only wear for weddings. Pair that heavy lehenga you have been saving for ages with a smart white shirt and choker neck piece to finish off the grand look.

Sari twist

If you think wearing a sari is a tedious task, there are tricks to wear one and still dance comfortably in it. Pair a dressy crop top with pencil pants or palazzo pants and use a heavy dupatta to drape like a sari for that chic fusion look. Add jewellery with ethnic elements and your look is complete.

Power cape

Superwoman capes are here and you can rock it like a star. Wear a dressy cape on a simple gown or go the fusion way and pair it on a sleeveless kurta and pants. Add accessories to go with it and you are sure to make a statement.

Keeping it simple

If you are one of those who hates dressing up, we have something for you too. Pick your favourite comfortable palazzo and pair it with a clean straight long kurta with embroidery and jothpuris and chandbali. And there it is. Your sheer girl next door look is complete.
