The brief was to create an outfit for an Indian cocktail party.
My friend Natalia’s close friend was getting engaged and she needed help with curating some Indian outfits for a few events lined up in the summer. Since Natalia didn’t have much idea about Indian dresses and fashion, I had full freedom to create the perfect look for her.
These days, when it comes to Indian outfits, Anarkali’s are really in. But they are also very common. For Natalia, I wanted to create something a bit vintage but still very trendy.
Creating the look
With a complexion like Natalia’s, any bright colour would work. So I decided to give her an electric blue churidar suit with muted sliver work. I personally love churidar suits. I believe they also make you look taller and thinner. The winner of this look was the hairstyle. I decided to give her a braid, and tie her hair in a small bun on one side. For makeup I used shades of pink, copper and beige.
The outfit’s blue colour and silver work really stood out. That’s why I decided to keep the accessories a bit muted. I gave her blue jhumkas, silver bracelet, silver bangles, distressed silver purse and sandals.
The look is out here – try it if you want to create a vintage chic Indian cocktail party look.
