A cotton dress or a georgette blouse? I asked myself. And I went with the former. Why? Because it’s earthy, easy and natural. I have to admit that I do love my chiffons and georgettes too, but lately I have been drawn towards cotton, khadi and the like.
To be honest, I don’t have a particular style. One day you would find me wearing a neutral colored outfit, completely minimalistic and the next day I would channel out my inner boho with lots of silver jewellery. Years of blogging and following blogs has brought in this change in me. I truly dress according to my mood.
But I wanted a juxtaposition of both my worlds, my love for traditional cotton and modern dressing. Can you wear a traditional fabric like cotton and still look trendy? Yes! I wore a cotton cape like a dress with classy brogues and a neckpiece. It was as simple as that.
A few tips on how to wear and style cotton fabric-
1. If you are wearing a saree, add a broad belt in the same color tone. You can also drape your saree differently to add some edge.
2. If you’re wearing a churidar, play with your dupatta. Show off your dupatta. Don’t forget to overdose on jewellery
3. Have a long cotton kurti? Wear it like a dress! Cinch it with a belt and throw on a denim jacket!
4. Wear a cotton dress with brogues or sneakers.
5. Smokey eyes, lots of kajal, dark lips and jewellery (both silver and contemporary pieces) can easily make your cotton outfit look classy and stylish.
These are a few basic pointers to help you style traditional fabrics without looking boring and simple.
