A new year is here with a stronger India. Every day I feel proud to be part of this great nation. Happy republic day to everyone! As I am here with SEASON TWO of IN MY CLOTHES, I thought of cracking it with an Indian-wear and no occasion could have been a better one, to share a blog wearing an Indian suit ,than today.
Salwaar-kameez, churidar, kurta-pyjama, etc, are the staples when it comes to Indian clothing for women in Northern India. From a girl child of three years old to a woman as old as eighty to ninety years, every north-Indian lady would be seen flaunting this classic clothing in an infinite variety. There are so many fads that lie within this bracket. From Patiala salwars to Afghani salwars, churidars to trousers, skirts to shararas, from short kurtas to knee lengths to floor lengths kurtas and from straight bottoms to a-lines to heavy flairs, the variety is endless. Thanks to designers like us (AHEM!!!) as we keep on innovating more n more contemporary styles.
In today’s prose, I wear an ankle length, sheath kurta with a pair of trousers, both made in Chanderi silk. In a “true-blue” color, the kurta has a lopsided embroidery in beige silk threads. The trousers are contrasting, having a beige base and true-blue embroidery. The complete set has a not-so-traditional look and is perfect for any occasion, where you want to wear Indian, but not look over-board. Styling it up with laced-stilettos in Nude color, completes the entire look.
Before I forget to mention, winter is here and is at least six weeks later than normal. And now that it has finally arrived and set in, it is expected to stay a while. According to the scientists when winters start late, they are prone to linger for longer. This might result in February being colder than it usually is. Turns out, we ladies can go get more winter dresses as this year we’ve got ample time to flaunt them. BINGO!!
Ah! it might also be a hint to my forthcoming posts.. 😉 Stay tuned.
