Another Festive Outfit

With the festive season just about getting over, I have another festive outfit for you all. And those of you who follow me on Instagram would know that I wore this outfit on Monday. I wore this gorgeous A-line tunic-churidaar for dinner at my Aunt’s place. The dinner was post-Diwali, but it was more like a Diwali get-together, so I chose to wear something ‘Indian’ and ‘festive’.

My Mum and I had bought this suit material (along-with several others) a couple of years ago. We were not doing shaadi-shopping, but as soon as we saw this suit piece, we knew that it could be a great addition to my limited Indian-wear wardrobe and would look really nice and dressy. So, without thinking twice we bought it. And although, technically it was not a part of my wedding trousseau (since black is not to be a part of wedding related things), I got this suit stitched around my wedding time, knowing that it would come in handy later on (it wasn’t a part of the box that had my wedding sarees and suits, and I collected it only recently from my Mum’s place).

What I love most about this outfit is the beautiful floral dupatta (stole). The suit has gold zari work all throughout and a wide, multi-coloured border, while the duppatta is made out of black net and has beautifully embroidered red roses all throughout. When we were planning to get this suit stitched, we thought it would look best in an A-line cut (since the fabric is flowy). And I guess it turned out as fine as we had imagined. The back is in the tie-up style, and the string (dori) has the cutest red and gold latkans which add interest to the outfit. And as always, I forgot to get a photo of the back :/ silly me!

But if you ask me honestly, the floral dupatta is the star of the show (or of this outfit…haha!). It is what sets this suit apart from other regular zari-work suits. I love the wide border as well since it gives a nice finishing touch to the outfit. For accessories, I wore my dusty gold sandals and some gold and red bangles. I also had my favourite rose-gold watch in place with all the other arm-candy. I also wore gorgeous pearl baalis (earrings) with this outfit. Wish I had taken a photo of them. Maybe I’ll add a photo later.

I quite liked this outfit. J Would love to know your thoughts on the same.

You can see what I’m wearing to work today on my Instagram (clothesandcreativity).
