My unconditional love for ethnic wear, sadly, has to take a backseat every winter because Dilli ki sardi is not that kind to my fashion choices. It hurts me immensely when I have to stuff all my traditional Indian wear in a trunk to make room for the fluffy woollens in my closet. I won't deny that I haven't tried layering but I don't feel like hiding the pretty embroidery on my kurta with a jacket or disturb the fitting with a thermal inside. If you are anything like me, this look of Kangana Ranaut's will be your knight in velvet armour this season.
Kangana wore a navy blue velvet kurta and palazzo set by Anita Dongre and we are convinced that Indian wear won't have to compromise this winter. The silver embroidery on a dark base like this is the perfect combination that is not OTT or, well, UTT. The sky blue pom poms in the front are adding to the charm in their own elegant way. She completed the look with matching blue juttis by Good Earth, and the black quilted Mini Lady Dior handheld bag by Dior.
Kangana wore this outfit to the birthday party of Kamal Jain. Kamal is the director of her upcoming movie Manikarnika. In fact, most of Kangana's outings lately have been with her director only.
Velvet is a very winter-friendly fabric owing to its thickness and heat-absorbing qualities. So you don't have to worry about the chills getting your fashion game down this season. But if you still feel cold, you can always replace your dupatta with a stole or a shawl and viola! Winter is saved, all hail the Queen.
