Hi people! Since it is that phase of ethnicity and traditional wear with so many festivities coming up, I am sure most of you may have your shopping lists ready. I too went shopping a few weeks ago and bought a few ethnic clothes for the festive wear. In fact, it never is enough. Every time I scroll through my Instagram feed, the list keeps getting longer and longer. Sometimes I like to wear plain palazzos with a kurta, sometimes basic denim and kurta or if it’s a kurta with no side slit, it can even work as a dress. Kurtas certainly are a versatile piece of clothing. I recently went to Aurelia store (and it is not a sponsored post, obviously, just in case you are wondering) and what I really liked about this store was the versatility of their collection- From work wear to festive wear, from bright to pastel colours, from light work to banarasi patterns, their collection was eye-catching.
One of the many kurtas that I brought from Aurelia’s Women Wear collection, there was this one piece that I instantly could imagine creating multiple looks out of. This is one thing that always goes on my head while shopping. My mind immediately begins to think of various ways I would be pairing a particular outfit with. Of course, I love my hard earned money and I respect every penny, I have quite come over that “Have worn and uploaded this OOTD once, I ain’t wearing that again” phase and never wish to get back there.
So enough blabbering, here are the three looks I created from this one Kurta piece from Aurelia for different occasion and purposes. I hope you love these looks as much as I loved creating them-
The Bohemian Element- Casual Day Out Look
For the first look, I coordinated my Kurta with the pants. It is such an easy breezy outfit perfect for daytime and casual outings. Also, the topknot bun, scarf around the neck and some silver oxidised jewellery add to the bohemian vibe. Likewise, these pants are such a versatile bottom- can successfully be worn with any other plain kurta, an oversized summer jacket or even with a crop top as it is a high waisted pant.
The matte makeup was done by @makeupbyaneri for this look. We complimented nude lips with blue eye kajal.
The Festive Mood- Ethnic Lover
Kurta and palazzo are the safest and most convenient option especially with the festive season coming up. Here again, some silver oxidised jewellery gave it the feminine vibe and it was a dewy makeup to keep it subtle and elegant for this look.
The Party Look- Glam and Shine
As they say, you always save the best for the last. This is personally my most favourite look and makeup ever done on me. So many times we have a formal party wherein we need to wear something decent and western at the same time. Such kurta pieces are a saviour at those times. Added a tan broad belt to make it look well put together and cinched on the waist. Finally, for the makeup, we did brown smokey eyes and I am myself short of words for the magic @makeupbyaneri did on my face.
I have to now take this opportunity and give credits to these two talents who really put up so much hard work in creating these looks the way I had planned. The person behind the camera @Kamal for capturing these looks with utmost perfection. The makeup artist who really knew my skin, my needs so well that she played magically with her brushes and made me look so flawless @makeupbyaneri.
This brings me to the end of this post but lots of festive looks are to follow, so stay tuned. Let me know in the comments, which was your favourite look out of the three. Be updated with my work on Instagram by following me on @minichoudhary_
