Skim through the heavy-duty kundan work, summer is all about flattering silhouettes in breathable
Summer’s here, and so is Eid. This year’s Eid shindig packs a glamorous punch that ranges from old-school katans to chic one-pieces that make getting ready a breeze.
Stripes are still doing the rounds, and honestly we don’t see it ever going out of style. Steal the show with some bold and chunky stripes on a sari. As for the blouse or the top, pick something from a vibrant, energizing palette – yellow, tomato red or may be a sequined purple blouse.
Katan is something that needs to be worn in moderation. Katan overalls – kameez, pants and orna – are overkill. They can make you stand out like a sore thumb. Finding balance is key. A katan orna will compliment a matte silk kameez. A khadi kameez with katan panels tapered along the hems is equally good. If you’re going for a katan sari, something subtle in blush pink or light mint is what we’ll put in a good word for. Nothing too loud.
Ladies, you can channel some serious ethereal vibes without having to look like a Disney princess at all times. It’s time for the long capes, kameezes and gowns with those dramatic extra flares to take a back seat. Keep it simple and sophisticated with a straight long shirt, with intricate details across the bodice. Pair it down with straight pants in white or beige, and nude pumps.
Jumpsuits take centre stage when it comes to camouflaging those few extra pounds, while absolutely slaying it. They are so easy to carry and look extremely chic if you work it right. Jumpsuits in floral prints, or even in solid colours, sporting some elaborate details on the neckline work best. Raise the bar with a pair of strapped stilettos and chandelier earrings in natural stones.
