Hello peeps! This has been the longest I have gone without updating anything about fashion. Was basically thinking of curating various looks especially the traditional, Indo-western and more so ethnic ones since the festive period is right around the corner and so is the Wedding season soon going to begin. Living in Ahmedabad for three years, I have seen this town lit up during the 9 days of Navratri. The whole city is out on the streets, the Garba venues, clubs, and party plots are inundated with enthusiasts. It’s just so exciting to see everyone dance in sync and not to forget the sound of dandiya sticks and the *clap-clap twirl*
With the festivity comes an excitement to dress up and show your desi avatars. However, don’t we all associate the Navratri outfits to the mainstream mirror-work and embroidered chaniya cholis? And think about it, we all do get ready, click good pictures but when you are actually at the venue, the crowd and the heat makes you not-so-comfortable, hell irritated and well too worn out to do the dancing.
Recently, I was invited by a fellow blogger @abhinisha22 for the launch of @sublimme.culture ‘s Navratri collection. They are a team of three designers who’ve come up with minimalistic, trendy and lightweight lehngas that are not just apt for the Navratri period but also can be reused for other occasions making them multi-purpose. The quality of the fabric is rich, colours are extremely vibrant, appealing and totally go with the youth vibe. Here, not forgetting, the pricing is quite reasonable and competitive given that one can wear the outfits more than just once for other occasions and in multiple ways.
Have a look at their collection:-
Here is what I picked from their collection:-
So why I basically picked this outfit is because it reflects every bit of my personality and comfort. While dressing up for events like Navratri, one must seek comfort in what they are wearing first, trends and everything second. Well, first, look at the vibrant colours in this outfit that scream traditional yet chic vibes in every manner. Oh and the beautiful detailing at the bottom of the skirt and top is what I found even more delicate and bohemian. Secondly, one can breathe in this sorta outfit. Nothing could hurt you or your delicate skin whereas there are chances of getting rashes on delicate skin types through the otherwise heavy work lehngas.
Further speaking of the multi-purpose use of this outfit, let’s talk about the top first, shall we?
- I basically feel I can easily pair it up with high waist palazzos, palazzo pants, or even a dhoti pant, cigarette pant and well layer up with a long designer jacket or if nothing else, wear the dupatta as a jacket.
- Speaking of the skirt, it’s perfect to be paired with a nice pastel shirt (in yellow, beige and pink hues) or even a turtleneck top would be perfect to match up with the skirt.
- Lastly, goes without saying that dupattas like these are so versatile. Can already imagine how elegant will a dupatta as this would look with even a plain white kurta and leggings.
The Navratri collection by Sublimme Culture also happens to have ruffle pattern skirts which are high on trend these days. Not just limited to ethnic fashion, they even have super affordable and good quality summer and western wear ranging from summer jackets, designer tunics to even get away clothing.
