How to dress up for Traditional Occasions

Hi guys, we are back again, hope you guys are doing great!!!. It’s always fun to share my thoughts with you :). So, last weekend I had to attend a traditional Event which was hosted by my cousins, it was a get together party. So, they had a dress code which was traditional attire. I dint want to dress up in pure traditional outfit like saree, but not even in regular tunics and leggings. I wanted my look to be ethnic and traditional, so I choose cotton umbrella Pattern dress, with chiffon dupatta and matching legging.

Thanks to my mom, she was the one who designed this outfit for me. Umbrella Pattern is similar to Anarkali pattern, but the difference is the way the flares are stitched, if you have a stout personality then umbrella outfit would make you look sleek where as Anarkali makes you look more stout, that’s why I love umbrella Pattern. Moreover, cottons are comfortable choice for summers

Now coming back to my outfit, it is a unique color combination navy blue and brick red, with gorgeous Kalamkari print which is type of hand painted or block printed cotton textile, Kalamkari print is perfect on cotton Fabric, they add more color and texture to it, and more over it is one of the ancient textile, so my mom purchased the cloth from a wholesale store and the stitched it. So, for dupatta, as the whole dress was printed, she suggested plain dupatta with border would be a perfect match, so she dyed the chiffon dupatta with blue and border of brick red and thin golden threads over the border, they all blended together.

For my foot wear I wanted flats specifically, so I choose to go with glitter shoes from Nine west, they are amazing I love the shade and were comfortable to, you can even go for Pumps and Juttis as well, (Jutties are nothing but Indian flat shoes) and Jewelry, you don’t need to much of it, just big Jhumkas or chandbalis (big earrings). As mine was full hands I dint needed any watch /bangles/bracelet, but if you still want to you can choose any one of them and lastly hand bag I was bit lazy so for this event, I dint had it with me, but I would say go for a golden or cream color clutch. You would look Pretty 🙂

I hope you guys love it share your thoughts, let me know if you want me to share my jewelry pics, I would love to do that.

 

Love,

A&M
