A little bit of ethnicity goes a long way. And since we’re talking about ethnic, I CANNOT be the only person who has noticed a massive bombarding of Indian prints in mainstream fashion! Dresses with Ikkat to combat the western Gingham, and embroideries with cute little Gujarati mirror work to trump the floral thread embroidery (courtesy Shein, Zaful etc). Not that I have anything against western trends. Y’all know I love my short skirts and cute lil’ dresses just as much as any other Jane Doe. But our Independence day and the upcoming Navratris/Durga Puja seems like as good a time as any to feel a little patriotic and appreciate (read obsess) with everything #MadeInIndia!
This beautiful and airy Monsoon apt dress from Anouk on Myntra is one of my favourite dresses these days. Aliasing as a kurta from time to time, this one is for the keeps! If you share my enthusiasm of all things Indo-Western wear, you’ll want to give Anouk’s clothes and collection of accessories a looksie! Here are some of my fav picks from their range –

Coupled the dress with some personally curated accessories sourced via flea-markets from all around India. Talk about being authentically ethnic and patriotic! ; )
Come to think of it, you’ll even spot all of our tri-colours in the pictures. Totally unplanned though…I promise! : )
No better pairing than a shade of Rust with beautiful oxidised accessories, don’t you think?
A match made in heaven…all rustic everything!
