Floral Prints Trending in Indian Ethnic Wears
Remember Bollywood songs from the 70’s; Gorgeous Tanuja or Sharmila Tagore clad in their chiffon and georgette sarees posing for the camera? How many times we must have huffed and puffed and wished to drape those prints. Our love for blossoms goes way back in to the yesteryears.
But behold!!? Do you see what I see? Do we hear that the floral print is back to fulfill our long lost dreams?
Yes, my dear friends, it is true that after an elongated hiatus, flowery prints are happily shimmying on the racks of fashion designers. Floral prints continue to sweep us off the floor with its bubbling designs and seasonal color hues. They add freshness and subtlety to our persona. Albeit this style was adopted to fashion western outfits, scarves, shoes and handbags in 2013, it has bent its niche in Indian traditional wears, especially Wedding Collection, as well.
Scroll down to get to know my ideas, and of course those of the Indian fashion diva’s, on the ongoing floral trends in Indian wears.
Sarees: Floral Print sarees is the trend setter this year. Whether it is chiffon or raw silk, pretty flowers can change the dynamics of the outfit. Pastel shades, red and green are most favored hues for sarees. Printed flowers sarees perfectly suits any given occasion, be it a traditional wedding or a lavish evening party. Also it caters to all genres of women.
Blouses: There is nothing more alluring than a gorgeous saree blouse being flaunted by a lady. Floral print saree blouse suits best on subtly designed sarees where the credit is more bestowed on the blouse. With so many creative patterns emerging in the fashion world, flowery prints will have lot of opportunities to display its vivacity. A tip that goes with these blouse patterns is not to over do it. Either,ensure the blouse is simple or the saree is.
Lehenga: Floral legenga does create a fairy tale sequence in weddings. Gone have the days when brides preferred traditional silk lehangas. Now, it is more of the like – let’s talk blossoms, tulips, carnations and floral motifs. Top Notch designers are shifting their base to these kinds where colours and patterns play major roles than the fabric. Floral lehengas also has the advantage of being lighter in weight; and so my brides, you may not have to be conscious while partying any more.
Indo Western Dresses: Kaftans, Gowns, Dresses, Skirts, Palazzos are whirl-pooling in printed blossoms fabrics. Do you agree that even though we have been wearing Floral Indo Westerns for quite some time now, we are still fond of it?My opinion would be, instead of going for the regular prints, the abstract design in more elusive or neutral colors is what calls for the day.
Salwar Kameez: Yes, you can also wear our age old adopted ethnic wear with a tinge of flower designs. Floral Salwar kameez if not widely acknowledged like the lehangas and sarees, they do have its own charm and is slowly emerging as a winner.
And, remember one thing, love yourself; if someone says you can’t wear floral prints because you are fat, just ignore them wholeheartedly. You will look fabulous if you go for the right fabric, flower size and pattern and design of the dress.
