In India, winter is seldom referred to as the season of vitality and joy. It’s also the season of picnic, vacation and, not to forget, parties too! However, no matter how much we love winters, dressing up for winter night parties becomes quite an uphill task for no one really wants her nice LBD or her gaudy sari to be covered up by a cardigan or a shawl or a jacket! If you too are quite perplexed about the kind of dress to choose for a winter party, you needn’t look any further—just follow the article and be the “it” girl of the party!
What are parties without a black dress? Well, for parties, chuck out cotton or linen and settle for woolen dresses. You can team it with a bright legging or tights—hot pink or midnight blue or even sky blue. However, make sure it’s not a flimsy ones that we tend to use during summers. Then pair your dress up with a suede ankle length boots and you’re ready to rock the party!
The worst thing about winters is the bland colors that are traditionally associated with the season. But that is a thing of the past! Just add a pop colored bag or shoes with your regular winter wear and steal the show. If you’re not in the mood of wearing boots, get hold your favorite wedges and team it up with a pair of flamboyant socks—sounds equally good!
Yes, you hear me right! I’m talking about Blazers and not those trendy jackets. Blazers have always been the traditional attire for work but, with a little bit of creativity, you can turn it into party attire too! Team up your blazer over a tiny, printed or lacy dress and pair it up with black tights. Wear your hair simple and slip into a pair of simple yet gorgeous stilettos. Keep your make up soft and dewy, and see yourself turning into a glam doll!
Nothing can beat the classic leather jackets when it comes to winter fashion! You can just team it with any mundane, monochromatic ensemble and see it turn into a statement. You can even team it with a chiffon maxi dress too! However, if you want to play safe, team it with a pair of rugged jeans, a plain tee in black or ash and a pair of boots—simple, quick but chic!
In India, winter is almost synonymous to houndstooth apparels—we used to even wear it as children least knowing its hi-fashion statement. You get houndstooth dresses, tops, pants—anything and everything. However, for winter night parties, you can wear a houndstooth mini dress in a darker hue and team it up with a nice pair of earrings and nude shoes. You can also wear your favorite houndstooth top and team it with a pencil skirt or even a pleated skirt for that glamorous and dignified look!
Parties mean letting your hair down and enjoying to the fullest! If this is your notion too, then just get hold of a boyfriend sweater and get ready to rock the party! Team your boyfriend sweater, preferably in shades of black and grey, with a pair of bright shorts and a pair of black tights. Always make sure you are not wearing those flimsy tights—the idea is to look chic and keep snug at the same time. Then, jazz your ensemble up with a pair of bright campus shoes and bold lips!
Whenever we think of winter, big, fat marriage ceremonies are one of the first things which prop up in our minds. Don’t we all just love to get dressed up for a marriage party! Nowadays, with full sleeved blouses and cholis dominating the fashion scenario, you will never have to compromise on your favorite ethnic attire during winters. Team your gorgeous chiffon sari with a lacy and sober full-sleeved blouse a la Manish Malhotra; jazz this ensemble up with a small black bindi and huge jhumkis and watch the entire crowd turning towards you!
