Right from the brightest of the jewel tones to subtle pastels, pick any colour from the palette and you’d still fail to find one that can compete with the elegance of pristine whites. There is something about a white-on-white ensemble that instantly makes the heads turn. And while the colour is a go-to choice for western brides (oh those pretty as a picture white gowns)–take this from us–white translates equally well in Indian wear as well.
Whether it’s the breezy beauty of a simple kurti paired with a patiala or a heavy-duty saree gown, the colour never fails to leave an impression. However, most of us continue to have reservations about the hue. Not sure if a white anarkali will suit my skin tone or how do I style a white lehenga–whatever may be your reason–rest assured, we take full guarantee to make this hue work for you. Well, summer would be in full swing once the lockdown gets over and that’s why we have compiled a list of ways to help you ace an all-white look in Indian wear this season. Read on:
Not only off-white and gold make for the most regal combo, but the colour-combo can also help you channelise some serious Greek Goddess vibes if you do it right. All you need is a flowy silhouette, preferably something in chiffon, crepe, or georgette and find a solid gold statement belt to finish the look. Think of solid off-white chiffon saree or a drop waist anarkali cinched to add some drama to the otherwise subdued outfit. Here are a few picks that you can choose from:
Add an elaborate array of oxidised silver jewellery to your all-white kurta dress, saree, or anarkali to add a boho touch to the look. We are talking about heavily layered necklaces that define the overall look of attire with their designs. Here are some pieces for you to choose from.
Adding some kaleidoscope jewels to your white-on-white outfit can bring a subtle burst of colours to the look. Think of a navratan choker or statement emerald earrings. You can also opt for multi-coloured juttis to add some pop to your white anarkali or even a crisp cotton saree for that matter. Here are a few picks that might interest you:
Most of the statement appeal that you derive from a white-on-white outfit comes from its silhouette. Thus, look for voluminous pieces that speak for themselves. You can explore flared angrakhas, kalidaar ghagras, and shararas. Always the king of the look, the silhouette comes to your aid when you are not up for dramatic accessorising or want to avoid any colourful additions. Here’s are a few picks that you can explore:
Remember how IvankaTrump left us all nicely impressed with her Anita Dongre sherwani? Such are the charms of a white bandhgala that it looks effortlessly chic on literally everyone. And the best part about bandhgalas? They look great just as they are, sans any added frills. Think of a standing collared kurti with white pants. Take a cue from Karisma Kapoor in her elegant Antar Agni ensemble. You can also pair it with a flared sharara or a nice skirt though. Right from a cotton blouse to a silken anarkali, a white bandhgala will always help you to level up your all-white game. Alternatively, you can also pair a lace top with a heavy saree or lehenga skirt. Everything is sure to exude power as long as you get your high-neck just right. Here are a couple of options to explore:
So ladies, all set to try an all-white Indian wear look this summer?
