JUST BLOGGED: FESTIVE PARTY COSTUME IDEAS ON RAWANDTOASTED.COM

Hola Sugarcups!

Following the fancy dress-up and intense sweet indulgence, I’ve celebrated Diwali with all zing and zeal. Although stocking up for the festive season yet continues. Meeting and eating-out just don’t stop! The famous play parties gaps around the clock and honestly, who would like to wear that last-year’s anarkali suit? Not me, and of course not my people! And this calls for festive party costume inspiration and ideas. And this totally screams that the festive season isn’t over just yet (and not even the dressing dilemma). If you are following me on Instagram, you must have already seen my outfit, but for those who aren’t, here’s a quick recap… continueWhatsApp Image 2017-10-23 at 13.20.11

Indian Navratri Edition: Oomph Up In Culottes And Oxidized Jewelry

Hola Sugarcups!! 

Hope you all are having a great time. Indian winter season is set to strike with Navratri’s first day (coming 1st October) I’m pretty sure that my folks out here knows what a Navratri festival is all about and those who are just wondering what and why am I raving about it then let me brief you… Navratri is a nine days long festival Indians (not being religious here) celebrate and shower love and devotion to Goddess Amba (Shakti). By all means, these nine days are about dressing up in colourful traditional clothes, adorning the oxidized jewlery, wearing those embroided juts (shoes) and picking the embellished dandy to join the Navratri bandwagon 😇

Most of you will agree with me that we don’t really fancy oxidized jewelry with our day-to-day casual outfits. Hence it is wiser to pick statement oxidized pieces that you can wear for years (yes, years because unlike other accessories, oxidized ones stay in rage forever!) In this blog I’m going to share three outfits that I tried to assemble and accessorize the look with ethnic and oxidized jewlery. Below are the three different looks that goes absolutely perfect with the Navratri vibes…

1.  Culottes Girl 

Go for a bright colour is the season’s slogan. If neon brights are not your thing, then hands down to the basic shades of red and yellow tones. I picked up this bright yellow Culottes and paired it with a fierce orange peplum top. The added lace details on culottes make it look more festive and chic. I finished the look with a statement sunshine necklace.

2. Crop Cameo 

Raise the fashion bar by opting for a casual crop top and embroided dupata (stole). Play with earthy colours like brown, blue, or black. Here I picked up a casual crop top to style on same bright culottes. To add some festive feel I tucked and flipped the dupatta across my torso, added some oxidized bling and viola! I’m done 🐕

3.  Desi Diva 

‘Nobody like my desi girl’ Break the serial of wearing salwar kameez by giving culottes a cut! Pair your umbrella-style kurti with a culottes and you are fabulous as ever! I’m wearing red embroided kurti with the same culottes and went just a little overboard with an oxidized headgear and a double-layer oxidized neck piece.

So that is it about styling culottes and oxidized jewlery. Let me know what do you think of it and which one is your favorite look.
