Festive season is definitely one of the most hectic time of the year with all the shopping for friends and family and ofcourse, yourself.At times like this my mind goes into complete lock down,and at the end of the day I end up not being able to decide anything for myself. Now, when it comes to Indian attires especially festive ones I like to practice the art of not over dressing. Weddings= yes, completely bedazzled from head to toe.Festive season= ethnic simplicity with some statement pieces.That’s been my go to and since I know and understand my go to options, it really helps in choosing an outfit.
I’ve come up with two outfit options which are oh-so-me and I’ll be sharing them in a course of two different blog posts (starting with this one) before Diwali (Indian festival of lights).
This outfit is very Boho Indian and it’s definitely something that has been super trendy this year. Infact, not just Boho Indian but just Boho everything has been super in trend this year and I feel like it’s just going to grow over the course of few years.Now, I would describe my everyday style to be quite basic.I am the definition of a basic chick.I like my neutrals and solid color outfits with some subtle or statement jewellery. It’s less often that I opt for something that is very Boho. But when it comes to Indian I tend to lean towards styling it in a Boho style and that’s what I’ve done with this outfit
I’ve got two words for you- Oxidised everything!!!! My current obsession has been a lot of oxodised silver jewellery and I am literally hunting them off of every store and website. I’ve paired this beautiful ethnic maxi dress with some oxidised pieces which includes a statement neckpiece,a septum ring and some silver bangles. I really love how bright the outfit is and the dull jewellery gives it a nice contrast.
Also I really liked the way the pictures have turned out with a nice graffiti train on the background. I couldn’t have asked for anything better! I paired it with some tan flats (keeping it simple there) and a low ponytail with a centre parting.
Overall, this could be a great day time outfit for Diwali because it’s great for when you’re off having fun with friends and family while still being ethnically accurate (is that even a term? LOL)
DRESS: Bombay paisley
SEPTUM RING: Primark
