This year, the fall season in Canada will be a host to maximum number of important Hindu festivals like Navratris, Diwali and Karvachauth
On that note, I wanted to do a traditional outfit post with one of my most beautiful red Benarasi silk dupattas.
I have previously done a blog post on a pure Kanjivaram silk dupatta and you can have a look at it here: https://strikeachordblog.wordpress.com/2017/07/26/shlog-10-celebrating-teej-on-hubbys-birthday/
Red in Hindu culture represents beauty, rituals and traditions and is also significant for Hindu married women.
Navratris are significant for worship of Durga Goddess and hence, my outfit choice had to be something that highlighted traditions and culture.🏻
Coming to the outfit, I wore a completely black kurta with beautiful and heavy golden print work on the front, back and sides and matched it with the golden work on the red silk dupatta.
So, so rich and luxe
I would like to add here that wearing black doesn’t take away from festivities, your spirit should be festive and you can rock black in the festive season with the correct form of accessories and outfit accompaniments for instance here, my red dupatta.
Silk is appropriate for this season where summer has gone but, Fall is still settling in and keeps one cozy and warm as a wrap and scarf too.
I wanted to focus on the golden undertones in the whole outfit hence my makeup was a golden and green smokey eye along with golden coral metallic lips.
I added golden- copper toned Kashmiri design earrings ; I love how long and stunning they are and no they weren’t as heavy as most of my real golden jhumkas are!
I especially love the tiny ghungroos inside the jhumkas just so me️
Also, I loved stacking my golden-silver-copper bangle trio in this look, I adore how the silver is also complimenting the metallic components of the entire outfit and makeup look!
I kept my shoes and hair simple and classy. Simple brushed hair and non fuss tie up bellies finished off the look.
Statement rings in the fingers and this super sweet golden potli clutch, with this gorgeous copper toned medallion embellishment to match my earrings, adds the necessary glam quotient to the hands and ties up the whole look
I am so happy with the red brick wall backdrop of my photos, since the location we chose for this shoot ( distillery district in Toronto) worked so well with my outfit and no, it wasn’t pre planned!
So here I am, diving into the festivities.
