Festive Trends

Top trends this festive season

1) Mix Modern with traditional 
The idea is to create a fuss free yet festive look. So wear a crop top with a lehenga or a long skirt with a choli. For drama, add a stole wrapped around neck like a scarf  or wear a dupatta in the cape style. 

Keep it simple keep it glam.

2) Interesting / unconventional blouses with sarees 

Try off-shoulder blouse with a sari. Small choli style coats with sari. Shirts with sari. 
Go non onformists, experiment. Wear georgette saris with block prints, Linen Sari or saris with tassels, pompom balls ! Keep in mind the color needs to be bright yet not over the top.

3) Kurtis/ Long Jacket with Palazzos/ pants 
Palazzos or cigarette pants with kurtis or long Jackets are apt this season simply as they are comfortable yet dressy. The trick is in selecting Kurtis with right work, right color and fabric like silk / cotton silk/ Chiffon.
