If the wedding/festive season has left you yearning for versatile ethnic options, then 1. You are not alone. 2. This article is for you. After checking out Taapsee Pannu's vacation pictures in the Maldives, we're convinced that repurposing traditional outfits for atypical occasions is the new cool. Need more motivation? Check out this Varun Bahl cape-sharara set that was worn for a beach holiday. And trust us, it's nothing like the run-of-the-mill styles that either of us expected.
One may resort to good ol' billowy kaftans, maxi dresses, and sarongs for a beach vacation, but then again, Taapsee Pannu is not your regular actress carved out of a cookie-cutter mould. Her sartorial choices are as daring (courtesy, her fabulous stylist, Devki) as her movie picks, and this printed sharara is proof. The outfit is replete with colours, making it an ideal vacay pick, but what stands out are classy Moroccan-inspired prints. The plunging neckline and tiered shararas prove to be the MVPs of the outfit.
This is definitely a cool new way to introduce statement-making motifs into your wardrobe, should you want a change of view of your closet.
Not just for vacations, this fun cape-sharara set serves to be a befitting choice for modern-yet-casual festive events. For occasions, think a laid-back puja ceremony, BFF's intimate mehendi ceremony, or even for house parties. Versatile much?
You can steer the look in whichever direction you'd like, depending on the occasion. If you're leaning towards a festive look, go for enamel chandbaalis and choker set that are in tandem with any one of the outfit's hues. For a modern vibe (that also complements the outfit purpose), go for shoulder-dusting danglers, just like Taapsee.
Needless to say, keep the style as the star of the show, keep your base makeup minimal and fresh, and opt for a cat-eye with champagne-coloured lips.
Inspired by Taapsee to try out modern ethnics? We'll vouch for these styles by Varun Bahl that are equal parts modern and festive.
