Unravel the Experimental Chic in you this Festive Season

Many people eagerly wait for the festive season, as after all, it’s that time of the year when everyone gets to dress up and show off all they’ve learnt about new trends. While most people prefer traditional wear when it comes to festivals like Diwali, an increasing breed of designers and fashion enthusiasts are experimenting with ethnic Indian wear to add a dash of contemporary style to their looks.

“People are tweaking traditional festive wear. They are becoming more experimental and edgy with their choices today. They want to break away from traditional silhouettes and heavy embellished pieces. The women of today are modern and versatile in their style choices. They want to wear something that embodies that,” says Ankur Modi, one half of designer label AM:PM.

Add an edge


Who says you can only sport a sari or a kurta in the festive season? Try out a jumpsuit like this one by Aditi Holani Chandak. This outfit is made with silk and is accentuated with thread jewellery.

Go Androgynous


Bundle up in style and go the boho way with something like this Siddhartha Bansal printed flared skirt and off-shoulder top. The colours and the print will increase the glamour quotient of your look.

Comfort First



Designer Rajesh Pratap Singh recently showcased how to lend a fashionable edge to the humble dhoti. Pair one with a jacket of the same fabric and you’ll be festive-ready in no time.

Feminine Fatale

Palazzos and crop tops make for interesting and comfortable options. Use a festive colour like pink, add some zari work to it, and opt for a rich textile to give the creation a desi twist. Designer Pranami Kalita shows us how it’s done.
