Passage to India Look 2 : Peacock blue kurti & Printed churidar

Hi everyone,

So I am back with Look 2 from my Passage to India series (Checkout Look 1 here).
My husband has a personal view that I compliment Indian outfit much better than western, so here is  my second look in Indian outfits.

Coming back to outfit, I simply love this beautiful Nehru collar kurti with little embroidery and touch of green. I used mint green nail paint and mint green ring to bring instant summer look. Don’t you think Indian dresses are very pretty and traditional. It is elegant yet chick. Hope you all enjoyed my attempt.

Above quote totally justify my look in this old collection of dress. Indian kurti & churidar is one of the best casual form of dressing that exists in India, Pakistan and in Middle East. Designers use embroidary  &  lace to generate most of the  fashionable addition in these Indian wears.

Feel free to share your perspective by your comments
