Trendy Kurta Neck Patterns

The very ethnic Salwar Kameez is a reflection of elegance, simplicity and comfort. As with all clothes it is very important to take your body type into consideration while picking the design. While deciding the neck design, the shape of your face and the body type plays an important role. 
There are a lot of ways in which you can stitch your kurta neck designs. Here are some for you!

1. Halter Neckline: The halter neck-line starts of two triangular points of fabric that run from the chest to the back of the neck where it is fastened with the help of straps. For women who are skinny or who have an hourglass figure this neck design would be perfect.   A halter neck salwar kameez design will expose the back entirely so make sure you find the right fit.

2. Boat Neckline:  Made to highlight your collarbones, these necklines look absolutely classy.  These necklines are the best because it’s compatible with almost all body types. If you have a petite frame your collarbones would be one best feature that can be showed off in this neckline.

3. U neck or Scoop Neck: These necklines go with any type of fabric. That’s one of the reasons why this is very popular. Deep U- necklines is best meant for women with small bust line. It’s a perfect neckline for when you want to accessorize a lot.

4. V- neckline: V necklines tend to make you look slimmer. Women with broader frame can totally go for this! 

5. Closed Neckline: This neck design has been trending the last few years. This neckline is not recommended for women with a heavy bust. If you want to look stunning in a crowd without any distractions then this is the perfect way to go about it!

Tips for Shopping

There is no such thing as “way too many clothes”. No matter how much we spend on shopping, it always ends up being worth it.  Here are ways to help you become a pro at shopping!

1. Make a list:  So, before you set off on your shopping trip, prepare. Review what you already have in your closet and then decide the things that you need. For example, when you go wedding shopping, make a list of the functions and the clothes that you need to buy for each of them. It makes the process of shopping much easier as you know exactly what you are looking for.

2. Set a Budget: Make sure you have a budget in mind once you make the list.  Especially when you are looking to buy a lot, it would be better if you have a rough number that you are willing to spend.

3. Don’t speed shop: When you are in a rush you might end up missing a lot of things. Especially if you are searching for something specific. Give yourself enough time to browse and try on different options.

4. Pick the best time for you. Shopping can be tiring and stressful if you don’t shop at a time that works well for you. So pick a time when you are most active and positive!

5. Make sure you don’t miss the sale: Sale is the best time for you to stock up on your wardrobe.

Aadi Sale!

This festival is celebrated for the birth of the Tamil month of aadi. This falls between July 15th and August 15th, the beginning of the fourth month Aadi of the Tamil calendar. It is believed that the Sun God changes the direction of his chariot from north to south, so this is celebrated as a festival.

The festival pays tribute to water's life-sustaining properties. For the blessing of mankind with peace, prosperity and happiness, Nature worship in the form of Amman deities are carried out to shower Nature’s bountiful grace on human beings. Prayers and pujas are offered to appease the powerful goddesses and seek their protection from the ominous aspects that are often linked with the month. This is an auspicious month when farmers begin to sow and the retailers begin to slash prices!
Also, starting this month the heat of the sun reduces and the rains start. The monsoon season starts just before Aadi. Every Fridays and Tuesdays, women in the neighborhood meet and do pujas together as it’s considered to be auspicious.

Aadi and sales go hand in hand together. Interestingly our aadi sale starts from the first of July and goes on till August 15th. This Aadi, it's time to stock up your wardrobe with all the clothes that you have always wanted to own! You can also gift our neighbours and other people around you during this aadi season.

How to accessorize with Indian Clothes

When you are wearing a traditional outfit, you need to accessorize to make sure your look is complete.

·         Pay attention to your jewellery:
Appropriate jewellery will only add grace to your outfit. Ideally you should not miss out on earrings and a chain. For example, if you are wearing a lehenga, you need to accessorise it with sufficient jewellery to complement it and  to look perfect. Wear jewellery according to the occasion and the look of your saree. Plain cotton sarees look best with light jewellery like terracotta. Opt for studs or a light dangling earring with a simple gold chain.  Also, remember to match your jewellery with the colour and work of your saree. A saree with silver will look perfect with silver or diamond jewellery whereas golden zari will go with gold sets.

·         Bangles :
One indispensable accessory for any woman attending an Indian wedding is bangles. They come in all shapes, sizes and price ranges and are the perfect accessory for following a colour theme. As pretty as it can get, these bangle designs have been changing for over so many years!

·          Pay attention to your bags:
Women’s bags are a necessity and a great style statement. Avoid bags embellished with beads, pearls, sequins etc. with your office going sarees. Reserve them for parties, festivals and other such occasions. For other ethnic wear, depending on the material and occasion choose your bags. Clutches that come in silk with motifs have been in trend lately!

·          Bindis:
Keep in mind your face shape and the occasion while selecting a bindi to go with your traditional wear. They come in all colours and styles from round, long, simple or with designs and even stones for that matter. People with round or square face will look good with bindis having some length. Long faces are apt for wearing round bindis.

Remember it’s all about mix and match when it comes to accessories. There are many more accessories that can be paired with our ethnic wear that we’ll be looking at in the future blogs. You can visit our store or check our site for some gorgeous ethnic accessories!

Trends for 2015

Latest fashion trends are something that all of us want to be updated at all times. It might not be possible to buy all the magazines to stay updated. So here is a quick glimpse into the colours, prints and trends that we can look forward to this season!

Colours: This season we can look forward to an eclectic mix of vivid hues, shades inspired from nature, soft pastels and neutral shades. From classic greens to marsala we will be seeing a wide range of colour combinations for this season.

Fabrics: Traditional fabric is going to rule the fabric charts this season! Apart from our favourite silks, we have a lot of other fabrics such as georgette, chiffon and cotton which are on the lighter side.

Prints: Prints have always played an important role in fashion. Florals, geometric prints, etc. To enhance these prints, mirror work, sequins, appliqué work is also used.

So, here are some tips to look gorgeous in Indian Ethnic Outfits!
Pick the perfect saree/ lehenga based on your body type.
If you are heavy on the top, do not wear fabrics that cling to your top portions.
Monochromatic Indian outfits make you look tall and less bulky.
Make sure you have the right accessories to go with your ethnic wear. Accessories like neck pieces, bracelet watches and sleek bangles and dangling earrings.
Once you know the kind of sarees will suit your body, next thing that should be taken care of is your blouse. Go for designer blouses and try different neck types based on your body.
Dark-coloured clothes create an illusion of being slim; where as you can totally go for lighter shades if you are on the skinny side.
Right footwear is yet another important thing that helps you to look perfect. Stilettos are just perfect to make you look chic in a saree, anarkali dress or a lehenga.
