Valentine's Day Look Ideas: Look 2, Do It Desi08:20:00
Honestly, I dont like conventional outfits so I'm forever mixing and matching one piece with another. I first wore this to college when it was a rather sombre day and I felt dressing in bright clothes might make me happy. I got mostly positive reviews for the outfit, except one friend who kept pointing out some tiny details he didn't like. (Ahem, annoying, ahem). Well, I didn't really think much of it but when I was planning the outfit post for yesterday's outfit, I thought this was a good way to show versatility.
like I did yesterday (see complete post here!)
For Valentine's I feel there aren't nearly enough Indian outfits, so this post was a necessity.Now if you feel squeamish about sporting Indian flavors on V-day, let me tell you, I've had a lot of guys tell me that they find girls in traditional outfits to be much more prettier. So go ahead girls, flaunt those Indian outfits with pride.
Tips for wearing a Dress as Indianwear:
- Look for the proper length while pairing dresses with Indian pieces. If its short like the one above, it works well with leggings. If its a flowy dress, you could also wear it as a kaftan with a belt.
- Look for dresses with Asian prints, these make the outfit look inherently Indian.
- If you like to rebel, pair shocking prints like animal prints with salwars and Indian accessories to make a statement.
- Don't be afraid of experimenting with a few different things.
- Pay attention to the fabric. Usually, dresses that have a bit of cotton in them and are a little flared work better and are easier to style.
