As I mentioned in one of my previous post here, I got myself two outfits stitched at my mum’s boutique when I was home last time. This Kurta and Palazzo set is the second one out of the two and I finally managed to put it up on the blog today.
If there is anything apart from the joy of designing your own clothes, it is the immense satisfaction that you get when your clothes fit you to the T. With an easy access to different size categories for the western wear outfits, we all have struggled to get perfect sizes in our ethnic wear at some point in our life. That being said, I hardly shop for any of my traditional dresses here in Bangalore or ocassionaly during an emergency situation with a sudden but important event to attend to. The process of selecting the fabric, fit and style of my dresses is the best part about having to create your own design. The process can be a little time consuming but so worth it.
This outfit is a very basic and summer appropriate choice. The fabric is the softest cotton you could ever find and has the most elegant print. Given the rise in heat these days, I am in no mood to wear denim or trousers to work and basically wanted something easy yet classy for the office wear. I had this look in my mind already and my search for perfect summer colors ended after I saw this printed piece at my mum’s boutique. Pairing it with white pants was the most safe and elegant option for work place. The palazzo pants look classy when worn with long kurtis and this style is very much in trend right now. With just the adequate flare to the bottom and ankle length style, it gives me the illusion of longer legs. These black patent leather block heels further add to my height and are perfect for a formal look. I got these specially for the leopard print pattern on the heels, which to me is its USP!
To complete my look, I further added this coral cane weaved clutch and some gold accessories. Now this is an option and you can swap the clutch with a tote bag to work. And although I would not wear this shade of lipstick to office but I would totally carry it off while I am not in a formal set up. Plus sometimes you just need a pop of dark lips to brighten the day up! 🙂
Hope you liked my outfit and this post. Do let me know in the comments section below.
