Festive Dramatic Flair!

Hello you beautiful people! How are you doing?  Keeping up with the festive tradition off late,  I realised that traditional does not have to necessarily mean ethnic Indian clothes. Traditional can be beautiful portrayed through anything which feels special and celebratory. Moreover, breaking the monotony every once in a while infuses fresh life into the art of dressing up.

For the more experimental kinds, this post would make absolute sense. Since I am a particular species of the out of box thinking kinds, I decided to pair up a neutral full volume skirt with a contrast bardot crop top for this look. The voluminous skirt adds drama to the look, while the sleek off-shoulder bardot top lends the desired sophistication. And since I’ve made it more than evident from all my previous posts, I am a sucker for contrasts, I added bottle green pumps to quench my thirst for colours!!

Without further ado, Let me show you my contemporary meets festive spin!





I enjoyed this look so much, I couldn’t help twirling in it all the time…Hope you all are thinking of making the most of this festive season with innumerable joys and kindness.

Love and Light!

It’s festive season in India, with a slew of festivals lined up in the coming weeks,bringing in so much joy and festivity to look forward to! Traditions and Festivals are so deeply embedded in the Indian Cultural heritage, there is no escaping them and dressing up ethnically is so much fun! Since its the season of traditional festivals I decided to do something special for you all- My first ethnic wear post!

There are so many ways one can dress up traditionally in India, owing to the rich cultural diversity across this beautiful nation. Suits are one the most elegant, timeless and practical ways to don ethnic wear in India and this post is about my love for this versatile piece of clothing.

The suit featured in this post is a lovely crepe self print piece in a neutral beige colour. Borrowing a little from the fabulous Pakistani style of designing suits, I decided to pair the top with a flared bottom and a contrast lining throughout for a break in the colour monotony! Also added a pair of bright fuscia Panjabi Juttis for a pop of vibrancy. And the result is for you all to see……







I had so much fun dressing up traditional and coy! I hope you guys liked it too! Let me know in the comments below, how you guys liked this post!

until next time, love




Print on Print is a nuanced style of dressing up. It has the potential to go awfully wrong if not done keeping in mind the right proportions. I know I am sounding pretty calculative here, but honestly pairing prints is a calculative risk. The key to doing it right is balance! Yep, the yin and yang of style karma has to be kept in mind for a clean, polished look!

Well, for the faint-hearted, there are some combinations which never go wrong( not forgetting the balance though!). Stripes and checks, polkas and stripes, polkas and florals……. If done in the right proportion, these combinations are never gonna let your fashion game down!

So today’s look is all about fresh, soothing print on print game, which in this case happens to be a floral & stripes combo! I have tried to keep the look fuss free by using a single color palette for the combination to appear more put together! I chose the color Blue for its vibrancy and crisp-ness, with a slight contrast in the baby pink pumps!

Even though this style screams summer, there is absolutely no harm in trying it out for Autumn/Fall brunches!

Come on in then……
