A culture bathed in Gold

‘Every step into a festival or occasion demands a new look and that look defines that festival or occasion.’

The festive season is drawing near. And with it draws near anxiety and anxiousness of what to wear and what not to wear. With being in an Indian society comes various kinds of events and not to forget the melodrama. But the most important thing to remember is to not repeat the dresses you wore last season. A little tweaking with your Indian wear can make you look like the most sought after girl in the party. So here are the top favourites of the winter/festive season 2011.

Sheer Seduction

Chiffon and georgette add a bit of seduction to the traditional dresses. It’s a huge rage this season. The sheer fabrics slyly show off the bare midriff and tummy and add the oomph factor to your clothes. It creates a drive inside you to keep your ponch in control and show off your flat tummy. A naval ring on that is like a cherry on the pie and totally completes the look.

A skin clad in gold

Gold is one of the top favourites during this season. No other colour looks better on an Indian skin like gold. It brings back a glimpse of royalty and the rich culture which is the trademark of Indians. Gold was one of the hot favourites for designers. An Indian women can speak volumes,effortlessly, while wearing the colour gold .

The swish of the ‘Indian’ gown

Evening gowns have always been referred to being very English or European, but the festive Indian gowns will certainly leave you spellbound. It has everything you would dream of in a traditional Indian wear. The layers, volume, rich surface work, delicate embroidery and a vast palette of colours. Indian gowns with jackets seemed to have been a highlight in every designers’ collection.

Blouse business

Blouses though being a very important part of every Indian wear, has always fallen short in choices. The maximum offered were the stereotyped necklines. But this festive/winter showed a complete recreation of blouses. The different kinds of fabrics, the silhouettes, the surface development has totally changed the face of blouses in the ethnic wear industry.

Skinny Churidaars

Skinny churidaars seems to be in trend again this season. It never got this gorgeous before.  It seemed to perfectly blend with embroidered jackets, small anarkalis or long voluminous kurtis. It a safe option for any kind of garment.


Jackets are no longer limited to mens wear. It has slowly trickled down to the womens wear segment also and nobody seems to be complaining as it adds every bit glamour and sophistication to a garment. Jackets were seen combined with lehengas, churidaars and dresses. It is the final missing piece in the garment and adds a royal look to the whole outfit.

Festivals and wedding is a much hyped affair in the Indian scenario and the desire to look perfect and to dress to stun everyone forms a very integral part of it. And as it is said no one can look prettier in an ethnic wear other than an Indian.
