Going Indian with Roopkala

As a fan of all things pink, I so appreciate the nuances between what's blush, petal, dusty, carnation, pastel, candy-colored, and bubblegum pink. The degrees of difference on the color wheel are subtle and endless, but I don't discriminate - I love them all.

When investing in Indian outfits, I think of the pieces I always need and just don't have enough of in my closet.

My current obsession for occasions is summer shade Indian gowns because they're elegant and effortlessly transition between different contexts.  This piece from Roopkala’s summer collection is what I want all my Indian wear to be: effortless but high impact, breezy, and chic. The cheery color and flowy fabric looks stunning, and is versatile for being a princess-y piece.

It’s the ideal outfit for events when you need something Indian and dressy, but still special. The outfit shade gives a festive spin, while the embroidery on the neckline offers a chic look. Sticking to the summer colour palette, the look feels fresh and on-trend. 

The punchy pink is such a fun pop that’s appropriate for a variety of venues. With nude wedges or embellished sandals and undone hair, it caters to a more casual beach wedding, whereas with a sleek updo and a stiletto, it works for a city affair. It hit all the notes I wanted, combining the best elements of a gown.

For this look, I really wanted to keep the makeup minimal and bare-faced, since the dress is a statement on its own.

Earrings are more of a fun detail. These delicate earrings from ‘The Dressing Stone’ by Ashni Mehta speak (some very stylish) volumes and add the just-right finishing touches you crave to any ensemble.

I balanced the outfit’s ethereal vibes with a golden clutch piece from Espelho’s collection.

It's just one of those guaranteed feel-good pieces for your closet that you know will boost your mood when you throw on. I'm excited to wear it to some weddings and events this season, switching up the look with a sleek low pony and smoky eye.
