Rusty Festive White
This is another post in the unintentional White outfits Series on the blog. Consecutively, last two outfit posts featured Whites. White has always been my favorite color in clothing be it in any fabric. Recently, in my “Branding” class, while on the topic of semiotics – it was being discussed that how the color’s symbolic interpretation changes with change in cultures. Well, I belief in the intrinsic values of a person than just what’s around him/her. Of course, the environment is one of the influential factors but ultimately it’s up to the person to get influenced or not. Heavy talk, right?
Let’s lighten up 😉 So, festive season here in India has already begun with “Navratri”; “Diwali” is almost here. Everyone would get his/her ethnic outfits ready well in advance to plan for the events. Hence, this special post featuring a festive ethnic outfit post is here.
In Indian contexts, wearing white on happy occasions is considered to be a taboo where, ironically, a Christian bride dons the color on her happiest day! Refer to the “culture” para above. 🙂
I always wanted to do something with lace and with this fabric, it was love at first sight. I made a kurti along with a bandhgala cropped jacket (Oh how I love turtlenecks!) and filled it with rust sequin. The jacket is open at the lower end so as to highlight the delicacy of the tulle lace. I’m a little late in posting this outfit though this has been ready since January In my defense, well, I was waiting for the festive season *wink*
The sequin also has a concept. If you’ll look closely, you’ll find that the sequin is in form a scattered pattern with maximum at the lowest end and decreasing as it goes up and then on the jacket, there’s a burst of them. I am biased towards such patterns.
I paired my rusty heels as they complemented the white and rust theme. Same is the case with earrings with extended chains on the hair. The metal bangles completed the accessory section for me.
Curly hair gave me the touch that I needed to pair with the ear-chains. For makeup, there was just basic “winged” eyeliner and light pink lips. And there!
Take care 🙂
Lots of love,
