The festive season is wonderful, it means celebrations with friends and family, brunches, soirees and after parties. The perennial question the season invariably throws up is – WHAT SHOULD I WEAR? Should I go all out ethnic or choose something contemporary with an ethnic twist? How should I accessorise it? How should I wear my hair? Go easy on the make –up or glam it up? Now, we’ll answer all of them, one outfit at a time. We bring you 5 outfits that are perfect for the season, and we’ll tell you exactly how to wear them.
Traditional or with a twist, we’ve got you covered with these gorgeous options from Payal Khandwala and Payal Singal’s collection. Wear it with your hair up in a bun, with real flowers as an embellishment. We’d go with a stunning nose ring or statement arm cuffs to seal the deal.
ETHNIC WITH A KICK
You like your ethnic with an edge, these pantsuit options should have you covered. We’d go with a faux hawk, punk makeup, some statement studs for the evening and killer high heeled boots. You can find them on Pernia’s Pop-Up Shop and on Payal Singhal’s website.
Two stunning pieces, from Payal Singhal and Varun Bahl, available at Pernai’s Pop-Up Shop. You can’t go wrong with either. We’ll do our hair in loose curls, either tied up or let loose. A statement piece as an accessory, be it a stunning clutch or a chunky choker. Pair them with pastel stilettos and it’s all set to go.
SALWAR KAMEEZ & ANARKALI
These beautiful blush coloured pieces will sail you through any soiree, we’d play up the romance of the colour, and go for the dewy face, with a hint of flush and simple chandelier earrings. If you are ready to forgo your heels for the night, jotis or mojaris are a great option to finish off the outfit. These stunners by Payal Singhal and Gaurav Gupta are available on Prenia’s Pop-Up Shop.
If evening gowns are more your thang, we’ve got contrasting styles for you, you can go for the pastel elegance of Varun Bahl’s design or don the deeper hue by Urvashi Joneja. No matter what you pick, the outcome will be stunning. Wear your hair in a messy ponytail to add playfulness to the outfit, heels and statement earrings is all you need to get these babies going.
