Top 5 essentials for fall
When it comes to getting dressed during summers, we love to look to the season’s most comfy, breezy numbers to inspire our daily looks. Natural cotton, linens, and dainty prints are what we lean on to keep us cool and well put together. Come fall, we are more than happy to trade our summer staples for luxurious silks, earthy tones, denim, and a little bit of shimmer.
We believe that autumn has got to be the greatest time of the year for fashion. The weather opens up so many wardrobe opportunities. So, we tapped into our website to help you weigh in on our favourite pieces and how to nail the look.
In with the shorts and out with the denim! Denim has dominated the fashion world and our wardrobes alike for time immemorial. As we embrace life in the new normal, this key wardrobe staple is also rising from the ashes. And now that the fall season is upon us, our comfy pair of denim is what we ultimately turn to to keep us warm, snug, and stylish. They are super versatile and transitional – they can go from day to night and chic to casual and are appropriate for every occasion.
A pair of denim can be worn with a crop top, long or short kurta, kaftan, you name it. Wear them with shirts or tops and sneakers and you are office ready. Throw on a silk kurta and you are ready for a dinner party. A denim jacket over a jumpsuit will look uber chic for an evening out with friends.
Come autumn, we lean on a specific colour palette that gives us warm and fuzzy feels. Colours like rust, coral, olive green, and gray are what give us comfort. But recently, the colour institute has revealed hues ranging from neutrals to ivory in addition to neons and golden yellow. Pantone’s colour of the year ‘very peri’ has also popped up on many occasions on the autumn spectrum.
Feeling adventurous? Another option to go for is layering. A bright kurti with leggings will look classy with a coat in neutral colour worn over it. Finish the look with boots. A dress paired with warm stockings and heels will raise your glam quotient.
Since we have officially entered the month of August, a string of festivities is underway and there is no better way to put yourself out there with your choice of clothes as they are the projection of your personality. Georgettes are vibrant, graceful, and extremely light as they drape easily accentuating the parts of your body you want to flaunt and concealing what you don’t. They are easy to wear and low-maintenance. The key to making your outfit transition from season to season is accessorizing. Since the bling is already ‘in’ this season, it is a good idea to pick a set with sequins and zardozi work for the upcoming festive season.
There is everything from sequins to prints to embroideries that will put together any fall ensemble. If you are completely over regular, plain fashion, adding a little bit of shimmer can make you the tiniest bit excited for fall. Sequins are having their moment right now. They are certainly on trend and they are timeless and make it easy to add variety to your everyday attire. Among other things, gold foil print oozes sophistication and class. Wearing shimmer is no longer reserved only for the night but can be worn during the day as well. A gorgeous short dress with overall sequin work and heels is always a great choice for cocktail hour. It’s a double whammy when your set has a beautiful print and mirror work on it! Just add chandelier earrings and lots of bangles and you are ready for a wedding!
Make way for the trend that brings all the drama – voluminous silhouettes! These dresses are full of layers, ruffles, statement sleeves, pleats, and more. These clothes want to be noticed as they demand attention to their exaggerated proportions that immediately draw every eye in the room. If you want to make a statement, voluminous silhouettes are just a way to do it. It embraces the mantra ‘more is more’. From puff sleeves to peplum and the flair, it’s all about comfort, not constriction. This kurta with a voluminous flair and ruffles at the bottom paired with wide palazzos makes dressing up this festive season easy-breezy. Throw a shawl over your shoulders for a regal look.
