The Timeless Saga of Indian Handloom

We are entering the monsoon season here in India but this is an evidence of my eternal and unconditional love affair with the perennial handloom and hand block prints of our country. From dresses to kurtas & breathable summer suits, I have them all and not yet willing to let the rains make me trade them for anything else!

This post is my humble attempt to pay an ode to Indian handloom in a beautiful turquoise hued outfit from Loom Tales – you might want to explore their website for a variety of Indian handloom products from furnishings to clothes with everything so beautiful that you would want to own them all.

Having owned a variety of hand loom sarees, kurtas and dresses, I thought I was done with them for the summer until I found this beautiful turquoise blue with pink and green block print suit.

The fit and flare kurta just fell on the calf for me – a length I have been loving these days. I have almost given up on any tight fitted bottoms with my kurta and now prefer any kinds of relaxed fit pants or pallazzos as they are much more comfortable during this hot and humid season. Apart from these,  I also particularly liked the button details on the kurta and yes, I do fall for these simlpler details in any outfit.

Now I would wear this outfit for any casual outing with my flat mules and hoops in a heartbeat but since we have few festivites coming up like raakhi and janamasthmi, I thought I’d style it keeping them in mind.

Hence, I dressed up a tad by teaming the outfit with my beige/nude stilettoes. Any Indian outfit without accessories is always incompelete for me but I’m not someone who goes overboard with accessorising too. I finished the look wearing a double layer chaand baalis which also matched a bit with the suit set.

Also, I’d like to draw your attention to these gorgeous set of white and silver bangle from Rajasthani Rangrej. I’m not a fan of glass bangles and you will rarely find me wearing ones but give me some wide kadas and bracelets and I’d be the happiest person. However, since I have styled a plethora of my Indian wear with huge kadas and bracelets, these bangles were a welcome change. I like stacking up bangles/ bracelets in one hand only and keeping my other either free or wear a watch and that’s what I did here too. And there, I had an elegant yet minimalist festive look ready. I think I’m going to repeat this so much during this festive season with just a few accessory/shoes swapping. What do you think?
