October and November have always been my favorite months for two reasons – first because these are the festival months and second because November is my husband’s birthday month. As I am a shopaholic these two reasons are enough for me to go on a shopping spree. Earlier I used to stay true to the phrase of “Shop till you drop” but since the online shopping has become more credible and accessible I try to cover most of the purchases sitting at home. Doing so does not only save my time but also the exhaustion which otherwise could have happened hitting the crowded streets of famous markets. Now, I utilize that time in decorating my home-sweet-home and making surprise plans (I love surprises). If I shop online I buy more in less time and less price. But it does not mean that I am totally refraining from offline shopping still when I get the urge to hug those streets, do bargaining with shopkeepers and spend fun time with friends I visit my favorite shopping places.
Well, talking about online shopping– check out this navy and pink anarkali kurti, which is perfect for casual wear in festival season. I love the notched mandarin collar and three-forth sleeves as they give an elegant look. Also, the vibrant color contract is perfect for the happy moods. Styled with metallic accessories, this will make nice attire amalgamating the fusion of tradition and western taste.
Firnangi pink layered kurta has short button placket on the front and contrasting printed layer at the hem and ends of sleeves. It is decent and stylish at the same time. If teamed with a pair of metallic bangles it would give an awesome trendy look.
I love the color combination and design of this kurta. It gives the best ethnic look in most contemporary style. If teamed with a pair of high heels and curly hair this would be an ideal traditional choice for traditional functions.
Yellow is one of my favorite colors, and this mustard yellow kurta with printed sleeves and front slitsgives an elegant stylish look. It can be paired with churidars or palazzos, along with a bohemian style statement necklace. It will make a nice option for get-togethers and conventional functions.
This orange striped A-line kurta with V-neck and curved hem will take your personal style to new heights. Dress up for your next family event by teaming this orange piece with your best Kolhapuris and simple jewellery.
These are just few of the pieces that I spotted while browsing through the traditional collection. The two best things that I like while buying clothes online are the size charts – which help in making the best estimation whether the product will fit or not and the returns policy. Now, I can experiment with fabrics and styles without worrying about returning the outfit.
Not only women, men can also bring their fashion quotient at par by doing apparel shopping. The clothing range from big brands likeTH, UCB, Arrow, Allen Solly, ColorPlus, etc. is easily accessible online. On my husband’s last birthday I bought him an Arrow chinos and he was quite happy with the fit and quality of the pants. You can also buy gifts for your partners with just a single click, and believe me there are lot of options to choose from- more than what you will find at any offline store.
So that is what I like to shop for the festivals. What are your plans for shopping? Do let me know if you have any gifting suggestions?
