I do consider myself a truly Global person. But once in a while, I don’t mind going back to my Indian roots. 

Indian summer: how to dress anarkali

The Anarkali is a long, full-skirted dress that you wear over Churidar i.e. legging like trousers. A matching long scarf is added to most ensembles.

I’ve accessorized it with simple jewelry like statment earrings, bangles and a cocktail ring because sometimes you should let the outfit speak for itself.

The beauty of this outfit is that it has a touch of an ethnic appeal yet looks quite modern. A win-win situation at least for me. 

Dress: Mum’s gift, Pouch bag: MIL’s gift, Shoes: Marks and Spence (old, flat option here), Statement earrings: Debenhams, Bangles: H&M. 

Happy Wednesday. Hope you enjoyed this post on Indian fashion. Thanks for reading and do show me your love with your likes and comments or better still go ahead and make my day by following me. I follow back 🙂

Today’s style guest post is from my BFF (Best Fashionable Friend apart from the obvious)…..drum rolls please…Neha, who lives in Bombay, India. Neha is my first fashion (and non-fashion) adviser, secret keeper and the most wonderful girl friend. I can sing paeans about her but I will just give this space to her. Love you, bestie.

Being from India, I have always had a fascination for bright hues. Pop colours, for me, are synonymous to summer. The silhouettes may vary, the fabrics may be different, but colours are right there getting all the attention they deserve. And this trend is definitely going to be a part of my wardrobe.

I have a few pieces in pop colours which I mix and match according to my mood. If you find pop colours too loud for your comfort, why not try accessories in pop colors to go with neutrals?

Here I am wearing a Mint Green top with a bright pink piping on sleeves. Summer fashion gets a fresh look with this light Georgette top. Fresh colours and contrasting detail gives it an understated chic avataar whilst the drop hem keeps it on trend. As this was a work day,  I’ve  teamed the top with tan coloured jeggings and brown ballet flats (I’ve to run around a lot!)

My style mantra is to keep it simple and be chic without trying! As a curvy girl, I definitely love sheer, light fabrics like this one as it does not cling to your body but lingers around it accentuating those deadly curves. Plus, the lightness of the fabric makes it perfect for hot (very hot!) Indian Summer.

Top & Jeggings: Vero Moda, Flats: Head over Heels, Suede Clutch: Next

I’ve added hints of blue and coral (on my nails) to add some fun. Don’t be afraid of mixing colours as it can sometimes bring together an entire look. 

Adios my friends and remember….keep rocking those curves. 😀
