December beckons! With a blink of an eye, it’ll soon be Christmas and then the New Year’s, which means two things – parties & more parties! Now, year after year, LBD and the likes have been the party uniform! This is the year to change it up a bit; swap the cocktail dress for a cocktail saree and set yourself apart from the crowd. Party dresses are good, but the nine-yard is better. We’ve picked four stunners from the label, Talking Threads to make sure you’ll be heading into the new year with a brand new fashion statement!
If elegance is your middle name, then this beautiful Pashmina piece is right up your alley! Wear it with a crisp white shirt. To accessorize, go for a couple of pearl strings and a pair of statement studs. We suggest going retro with hair and makeup; look up Gayatri Devi for inspiration! That’s the look you after.
Who said sarees have to be serious and weigh a couple of tons! This satin number is super light-weight. The citrus green is uber fun! This saree is perfect for kicking up your heels and dancing all night. A delicate crop top, in this case, the embroidered floral blouse is a perfect accompaniment to this beauty. Since it’s such a fun colour, we’d get super quirky with the accessories – the quirkier the better!
TOUCH OF TRADITION
Most people shy away from sarees as they deem it too traditional for a party. That’s not true. It all depends on what you wear it with and how you drape it. Instead of going for the traditional draping style. You could wear the pallu around your neck, and instead of a blouse, wear a stunning blazer to give it a powerful make-over. In this case, the gold-black brocade Banarasi silk jacket adds a regal touch to the sequined saree! An over-sized bindi, ethnic jhumkas and strong lips are all you’ll need to finish off this look!
For all the divas out there, it doesn’t get better than this beautiful plum saree, and when coupling with this stunning mirror-work and zardozi jacket, it’s a match made in fashion heaven! The jewel tone is perfect for a soiree and the mirror work adds a playful touch. We’d play around with gothic makeup and a punk hairdo to make it a stand out look!
There’s nothing wrong with fitting in, but to stand out is amazing! This festive season, ditch the norm and create your own style statement!
