The festive season is upon us and so it’s time to host dinner parties and get-togethers. As a newlywed, you’ll obviously want to look as stunning and amazing as the delicacies you serve.
The occasion demands that you choose something traditional from your trousseau but also that which you’ll be able to carry with ease. The most comfortable Indian outfit that is both traditional and trending is the anarkali. This Indian version of an evening gown gives the wearer a regal and elegant aura.
My pick is from the latest collection by the talented designer duo Rahul and Shikha. Their label, Vrisa, is known to combine traditional Indian embroideries with both Indian and contemporary constructions. ‘Char Chinar’, their collection for this season, brings alive intricate Kashmiri hand embroidery on beautiful Persian and Ikat fabrics.
The outfit that that I have selected is a gorgeous anarkali in a breezy shade of green. It’s long and free-flowing silhouette is perfectly suited for our time-honoured traditions and festivities. While the threadwork is unmistakably Kashmiri, the motifs are inspired by Turkishdesigns.
The dark green, velvet dupatta is a gentle nod to the approaching winter. The bright orange underside of the dupatta lends a beautiful contrast and the tassels enhance the creation’s royal touch.
Complete your look by adorning the very royal Juliette court shoes from the British luxury brand Charlotte Olympia. This rich burgundy satin footwear provides the perfect contrast to your outfit while adding glamour and class to your beautiful feet. The court shoe sports a 95mm heel, with gold details. The heel is high enough to add grace to the dress but not sohigh as to impede your hosting skills.
