Hi guys! Welcome to the 2nd part of my Indian Festive Dressing series. I really enjoyed shooting these outfits because they were so different from how I normally dress. If you’ve read Part 1 of this series, you’d know that I’m not used to wearing much of Ethnic wear but I stepped out of my comfort zone and decided to shoot something festive for the season. I hope you guys enjoy this post!
Since my first look was very vibrant and jazzy, I went for a muted tone for the second one. I chose colours that were neutral, so those of you who aren’t a fan of bright colours, you would relate better to this outfit.
I chose this casual grey Anarkali kurti with beige motifs from Westside and wore it as a dress. This Kurti flatters all body types and that’s what I love most about it. Since it’s high waisted and long, it also gave me the illusion of height, which is always a good thing for me since I’m pretty short.
I also love how the border has this subtle dose of gold shimmer which is great because it contrasts with the otherwise muted tones of the Kurti. I paired the Kurti with tan and gold sandals which I picked up from Koovs. Theyre great for everyday wear and add a bit of casualness to this dressy outfit. You could also opt for heels if you want a more dressy look.
For accessories, I went for gold hoops earrings although Jhumkas would look great too! I wore a cut out gold cuff from Forever 21 on one hand and a slim gold kada on the other. For my neck, I wore a dainty gold choker from H&m and my bag is a Bershka tan sling bag with gold chain hardware to match my shoes.
Here are some more photos from the shoot.
Also, I got a lot of questions regarding my lipstick when I posted a selfie of this shoot on Instagram. I’m wearing the shade Coffee Lite from the Lakme 9-5 weightless lip and cheek matte mousse collection. It’s a perfect dupe for Lolita by Kat Von D and I love the formula and the shade! It’s one of my favourite lipsticks and works great for Indian skin tones!
So that’s all for this post guys, I hope you all liked it. The photos were shot by Aishwarya from picx_medias and we had a lot of fun shooting this look, we also got a lot of curious glances from passerbys which made it a tad difficult to shoot, but hell, that’s the life of a blogger so guess I just gotta get used to it.
Anyway, enough of my rant, if you want to achieve a similar look, I will link the items from my outfit down below so go have a look. Also, I hope you guys have an awesome Diwali.
Loads of love,
