Every year festivity always agitates me to dress up. Sometimes buying new clothes is exciting and at other times working on the pieces you already own is exciting as well. Indian festivity calls for a riot of colors. In the trend of neutrals wearing something colorful yet staying in an understated look is tricky. I always believe and enjoy playing up with pieces mix and match, switch and swept. While wearing a colorful outfit, I tone it down with neutral accessories and while wearing neutrals, teaming it up with a pop of color or statement accessories is real fun.
Indian festive celebration is associated with some quintessential colors like red, orange, pink and yellow. This time for Indian festive celebration, I chose an orange silk kurta ( tunic ) and orange salwar ( dhoti pants ). The color orange itself is a bright and bold color. If I choose the traditional route, I should have chosen gold, yellow, pink colors. In the quite contrary, I chose black; a black color dupatta and some silver jewelry. My neckpiece is a silver elephant pendant. The pendant is from Bali, Indonesia. I wore dark red matte lips, simple hair and rest of the makeup are natural and a dark blackish Brwon juti (flat Indian pump). A casual look. Did you check Indian festival look # 1. Hope you like this look.
