While there’s a plethora of raging styles and ruling trends to pick from this festive season, we at Ciceroni, handpicked some timeless classics to nail your style game this Rakshabandhan.
The lord of the designs, Sabyasachi Mukherjee defused a mammoth glamour bomb last week which took the couture world by a storm wherein he unveiled the first look of his festive collection 2019. The maestro has once again created fashion history for the future to take notes from.
While we are still recovering from the empowering overdose of sartorial poise, oomph and regalia, we at Ciceroni, decided to curate some quintessential festive looks to help you nail your style game this Rakshabandhan.
Rakshabandhan, the festival that celebrates sibling bond, being quite a significant occasion in itself, also embarks the preceding festivities like Ganesh Chaturti, Navratri, Diwali and the exuberant wedding season. Hence, getting your fashion game on point for this one is paramount! Don’t let the modesty of this festival fool you, for your Rakhi look is the first glimpse from your season’s festive look book.
While there’s a plethora of raging styles and ruling trends to pick from, we handpicked some timeless classics that are sure to stand out from the fast fashion clutter.
Embrace the prints! Be it conventional paisleys, pretty florals or the classic Tie and dye, vibrant prints add so much character to an ensemble. Prints are a perfect way to fuse traditional motifs into modern silhouettes and similarly you can opt for quirky uber prints to contemporise your conventional ethnic wear.
Ruffle it up!
While good old classics have their own endearing charm, a little bit of drama never did any harm! Amp up your look with a dash of ruffles and own that outfit like a style diva. Be it a skirt, a crop top or a plain jane saree, let ruffles pump some spunk to your look!
Incorporate the hottest summer trend in your festive wardrobe with the floral prints. These prints are so versatile they just go well with both traditional as well as western wear. Floral motifs enrich an ensemble with delicacy and femininity and can make any outfit appear pretty and gorgeous!
Keeping our roots close to ourselves, sarees is and will always be occasion appropriate. Think festive, think saree. These nine yard beauties can glam up any occasion without trying too hard. Wear an unconventional drape or the good old traditional one, whatever may be your style, sarees won’t ever let you down. Team it with a crop top or the quintessential cap sleeve choli, they will look versatile every way because saree is never sorry!
Since years, bright pop colours like scarlet reds, hot pinks, electric blues, emerald greens and canary yellows have been synonymous with festive shades. And then came the pastel wave that added so much aesthetic value to the ensemble and while it is extremely unpretentious it is also soothingly refreshing and eye-pleasing. Although the winter fashion forecast dictates a bolder color palette and earthy tones, one can never go wrong with light pastels prettified to perfection!
Derived from the royal realms of Nawaabs, this silhouette spells royalty and has a perfect proportion of oomph and elegance. Team up your Ghararas with a heavy kurti and a statement choker for that Begum Kareena Kapoor Khan vibe or club it with a strappy chic kurti like Sara and Alia for an effortlessly stylish look.
The Velvet touch
Also known as the richest fabric, velvet is truly royalty fabrified! There’s something so opulent about this heritage fabric and we love how its making its way back into the couture world!
If conventional dressing isn’t your deal, unleash the fashion rebel in you with conventional drapes that resonate with your personal style. There are absolutely no rules to nail this one, except for ‘own it like a boss’! It’s edgy, sexy and empowering at the same time.
The Brocade Brigade
Could there be anything more festive than Brocades! This rich fabric spells class and elegance and adds so much panache to an ensemble. Team it with other fabrics, or go all out with a banarasi brocade anarkali like diva Karisma Kapoor.
Classic White Suit
When in doubt, wear a white! A classic white dress is to ethnic wear what a LBD is to your western wardrobe. Timeless and relevant. Opt for a majestic chikankari white suit or team up your white anarkali with a phulkari dupatta, and you are ready to slay any occasion.
