Bihu Outfit of the day vibrant mekhela chadar

You know my love affair with mekhela chadar is never-ending. With the growing age it is growing even more and I am more at ease wearing it. Last weekend the Greater Boston Assamese community celebrated Bihu with prompt and enthusiasm. Like last year we attended this year as well and I got one more opportunity to wear mekhela chadar.

       I got this mekhela chadar at Assam Convention where one of the designers Jahnavi Swargiyari showcased her designs. A simple yet elegant mulberry silk mekhela chadar in bright yellow color, just great to celebrate Bihu and Spring. The mekhela chadar has both silver and gold design in it. The bright yellow reminded me of Assam, especially the dotted mustard fields of Majuli and dreamy daffodils in New England. I chose muted antique finish gold jewelry for earring, a stack of bangles and added a few turquoise enamel bangles with it, a turquoise bindi and turquoise potli bag for a splash of blue on yellow you can say. A red lipstick, call my make up a bit loud but can't help when it's a festival and loose curls on my hair. Colorful and vibrant just to keep up with the spirit of Bihu. Please share your thoughts and ideas.  Hopefully, I will continue with more spring outfits. Please stay tuned.


  1. Your dress , makeup , styling are all on-point ... bohut dhuniya lagise!

  2. Love the yellow color. First I thought it was a sari, came to know this kind of draping style today! Love the color pop of the bag as well :)
