November is ending, the chill has begun to set and you’ve begun to look up hot cocoa recipes on the Internet. This can only mean one thing – winter is coming! Apart from snuggling with your loved ones or planning a trip to Manali, the next best thing about December is the arrival of Christmas!
From pumpkin spiced latte to spiced hot chocolate, mojitos to mulled wine, bikinis to bomber jackets, ‘ethnic wear online in India’ to ‘winter wear online in India’ – this holiday season is going to effectively change your aesthetic and palate ASAP. There are Christmas cards to write, presents to buy and most importantly, parties to attend! If you’re an ethnic wear lover like us, you might already be creating outfits in your head for the upcoming events.
Usually, fall and winter fashion sees a dip in traditional ethnic wear since many opt to go for woollen slacks, down jackets and sweaters that are more Western in style. Yet this does not mean you have to scrimp on your love for all things desi and stow away your beautiful silk sarees and embroidered anarkalis until spring blossoms.
Here are a few ways to style winter outfits for the perfect Christmas or NYE party!
- Sarees – One of the most versatile options for any season, sarees are timeless. Afraid that you’ll catch a cold in just the six yards of fabric? Bring out the blazers, stylish thermal tops and tailored trousers to layer with the garment. You can replace your usual blouse with a long sleeve bodysuit and wear warm tights underneath your petticoat. Slip-on a blazer, tie it together with a waist belt and finish off the look with a top knot and jewellery that accentuates your features.
- Fusion dresses – Another contender in the ‘most versatile garment’ category is the dress. Anything that combines Western silhouettes with an Indian pattern, while simultaneously giving you the freedom of wearing thermals inside (if the dress does not have slits) and a a stunning overcoat on the outside is a win-win. If you’re worried about where to get them from and are knee-deep researching ethnic wear online in India, look no further than Shruti Sacheti. Pair our Deep Red Maxi with thigh-high leather boots, a satin bomber and a statement choker to stand out at any party!
- Kurti and trousers – The best part about two-pieces are that they need not always match to make a style statement. Whether they be different fabrics or colours, sometimes opting for a change in the set is always a fun experiment. Pair Bone Viscose Palazzo, pick a colour from the accents on the side of the pants with a kurti from your closet, layer on with a trenchcoat or throw in some fun turtlenecks, slide into some comfy heels or statement sneakers to pull off a more uptown street style look. Embellish yourself with edgy accessories to top it all off.
