Confessions of Black
‘Women who wear black lead colorful lives.’ – Neiman Marcus
Ever recollected not spotting a hint of black in your closet? Or a time when you went on a black-binging-spree? Fashion-freaks or not, we’re guessing that every woman’s obsession with this magical color doesn’t really have much to do with how many times you wear that one staple black outfit from your wardrobe. From a wrap of the simple yet dramatic Saree to slipping into a laidback look, say a Kaftan, here’s exploring the boldness of this color with Indian Ethnic Fashion.
Did you ever end up picking out a black outfit for the day, on a day when the countless colors in your wardrobe were only confusing you more? Call them clichés, yet this color would probably be the timeless favorite a woman would have tucked away for the best occasions, the one color you think would make you look your confident best, or the one color you could bank on, on a day when colors seemed too dull or bright for your liking.
Moving out of the monotone of colors, it demands attention, goes quirky with a twist of contrast, assumes grandeur with traditional accents. What’s your take on the classic appeal of this hue?
Coming out of the scrawny tee-and-jeans look, the Black Saree with both its grandeur and subtlety has been a treasure tale for every woman who first experimented with the Saree in her teens.
A pair of Juttis, decked in the glamor of sequins, clubbed with a Patiala-Salwar or Indowesterns in contrasting shades.
Unfurling a traditional drift with an attire like the Salwar Kameez, or wrapped around the Indo Western avatar of Kurti and denims, a tdupatta has been the timeless accompaniment to suave accessorizing.
