When it comes to Indian ethnic wear, a Bollywood celebrity who, time and again, keeps giving us style inspirations is none other than Karisma Kapoor. The diva’s enviable ethnic wear collection needs no introduction. She is truly a trendsetter when it comes to making Indian wear chic – be it shimmery sarees, colour pop lehengas, intricately embroidered suits or even summery linen wear. And with the festive season round the corner, Karisma’s recent looks have already been helping us come up with ideas to have a very stylish festive season.
In Karisma’s recent Instagram post, she shows us that elegant styles are always a winner. Dressed in a stunning ethnic suit by Sabyasachi, the actress looks regal in blue. The anarkali is minimalist other than the embellished borders that give it a glamorous appeal. Together with a heavy dupatta and statement earrings, Karisma is hard to look away from.
Talk about festive dressing, and what works like a charm are floral patterned suits in trendy colours. Karisma gave us style lessons on how to look pretty in pink by picking a beautiful salwar suit by Anita Dongre for Janmashtami celebrations with her family. The baby pink knee-length kurta had intricate floral detailing in threadwork and sequins, and it was teamed with a matching dupatta and semi-Patiala pyjamas. Karisma had added more spark to her look with chunky jhumkas, beaded jootis and a potli bag.
For those who prefer modern silhouettes and standout designs, it’s time to include contemporary ethnic wear in your festive wardrobe and have some fun. Karisma is also a pro at that. Take this offbeat Tarun Tahiliani ensemble for example, that she wore for an event last month in Hyderabad. The layered outfit combined various styles – shirt, kurta and jacket – to create a unique look.
So go on, start gearing up for a fabulous festive season.
