Jazz Up Your Festive Look


Experiment with your look this festive season and ditch heavy ethnic attire for palazzos and layered kurtas say, experts.

Rajesh Jain, Business Head at Rangriti, says a combination of classic kurta and a palazzo never fails to impress.

* Pair floral palazzos with a super simple white kurta.

* Accentuate your look with the trendy earrings, watch and sandals.

* You can also go for a minimalistic look, with just a neck piece or a long earring or a broad bracelet.

* The best option is to keep your neck bare and just go for bright colour studs or earrings with your outfits.

* You can also opt for layered kurtas. Team an embroidered or any printed kurta with a plain cigarette or 3/4th length pants.

* Ignore long or heavy and difficult to manage duppattas. Rather go for jackets or stoles to jazz up your look.

* Fabric like pure cotton, silk, mul, chiffon, nylon, georgette are the easy go fabrics for this festive season.
