Add a little 'bling'

Gaudy and bright dresses are passé and so, fashionistas suggest likeable options for modern and fashion-conscious women for this festive season

During festive season, everyone tries different ways to add more verve in their style and dressing sense, and beyond a saviour, they strive for perfection. The common conception that only bold and vibrant colours complement the perfect vibes is fading gradually as young designers are more inclined towards soft yet shimmery pastel shades. "Too much of embellishments and work not only feels awkward to carry but also makes one annoyed. So, to bling and shine without wearing uncomfortable stuff is a trick," say Puneet and Yatin Jain, Directors, ODHNI.

Understanding demand of the consumers, experts have list down options for you to consider:

Be subtly gorgeous

There is a bevvy of options in pastel shades, especially in the Indian ethnic segment, which looks phenomenal on festive occasions. From sky blue boota border chiffon sarees for pre-Diwali celebrations to zari-resham embroidered beige lehengas for the sparkling Diwali night. Later, silk embroidered georgette sarees in different shades of pink, faded red, and mint green could be the stunning choices for Bhai Dooj and Govardhan puja. Options in pastel coloured dresses perfectly sync with Indian festivals. Apart from these, chiffon or georgette sarees in peach, beige, aqua, and other light colours can meet the demands of married women, who want to create maximum impact with sheer grace and simplicity.

perfect hues

Colours like faded red, mint green, baby blue are best to elaborate Badla or Chikan work on exuberant lehengas and flowing anarkalis. Fabrics which provide an excellent base to these artworks are silk, chanderi, and brocade that accentuate both shimmer and grace of the lehengas and anarkalis. For a complete ethnic look, women can choose eye-catching long choli lehenga. The long choli with Zardozi and needlework all over. But, women whose first and last love is saree, they can try Gotta Patti work on the border of sarees and golden embroidery with sequins on lehenga on pastel coloured fabrics for a dazzling look.

Flaunt the fusion

Young and college going girls can go more buoyant this festive season with fusion dresses, where they can enjoy the embellishment of Indian ethnic wear and functionality of Western wear. Pastel coloured kurtis champagne red or black with white or topaz blue palazzos or trousers can make one noticeably different and attractive. They can also opt for embroidered gowns and maxi dresses.

Feel the difference

Today, women are open to experimenting with colours, fabrics, styles and designs. They have a much-evolved palette when it comes to choosing their festival couture and ensembles. Gaudy and extra bright dresses are passé and have very little space in the wardrobes of modern and fashion-conscious women. Pastel colours can be worn on every festival and in every season and working women can also adorn them during official parties in the festive season.
