Hey pretty people,
Anarkali has been all the rage for the past couple of years but they can get too heavy to carry . By now you all must have understood I am all about mixing and matching every piece in my wardrobe. I hate to spend a ton on heavy Indian outfits that I would probably wear just once, I would rather spend all that on clothes that I can style over and over again.
Plus it is strange to me if I wear clothes heavier than that of the host families in a marriage function or party. Does that happen to you too?
So today’s outfit is what I wore to my best friend’s grandparent’s Golden Jubilee anniversary. Isn’t it wonderful when two people have such a long and blessed courtship? The celebrations were awesome and my Indian outfit did not stop me even once from dancing my heart out and I enjoyed twirling around all the more.
I paired a yellow anarkali kurta with an angarakha neckline from Biba with a sequined floral print long skirt for this occasion. I hardly ever wear yellow, mainly because it is hard to find the right shade of yellow that looks good on me, but with this biba anarkali I was sure the moment I saw it online. It has a slight deep neckline but I was completely snug in it.
The skirt has been in my closet for the past 7 years and I never wore it even once in all this time because I just couldn’t find the right top for it. It has an A-line fit which gives it a lot of volume perfect to use it as a lehenga underneath any anarkali or even a straight fit long kurta. In fact I have been pairing all my A-line skirts with kurtas because they feel so comfortable in summers giving a much needed ethnic twist to my style these days.
I used this vibrant Jaipuri clutch with mirror work on it to add a bit more Indian to my outfit. I went minimal on rest of the accessories with just my rose Gold watch and these tiered earrings from Pipa Bella.
Left my hair open this time with a statement red lip using the Limecrime Red Velvet Liquid Lipstick review for which will be up tomorrow.
Do share your views on how you found this outfit and try something similar if you don’t want to spend on new Indian dresses. Love to you all.
