It’s time to hear the sound of jingle bells again! With the December month unfolding the sparkles of Christmas, we are all set to give a glamorous goodbye to the fabulous 2022.
While every festival has an irreplaceable charm, Christmas is best known for its magical feel. Whether you believe in Santa, the glory of decorated Christmas trees, candy canes, reindeer baubles, and sparkling fairy lights is spectacular. Above all, the fun and frolic of Christmas parties and the energetic vibe of New Year’s Eve are a much-awaited treat for all!
The best thing I like about festivals, in general, is the chance to play dress-up. We already have the latest Christmas collection everywhere- the options are plenty and pretty. So, it’s officially the time to get the best outfits for Christmas, New Year’s Eve, in-house meet-ups, extravagant club parties, and all sorts of social hours!
With days full of dazzling crowds, scrumptious meals, happy pictures, and groovy moments- you cannot give fashion a miss. And well, if you’re going to be cozy in your home comfort, wrapped up in your favorite blanket, having a beautiful picture with your Christmas tree is definitely worth the fest.
Ethnic Wear for Christmas
While Christmas attire is almost synonymous with snazzy red dresses, little black frocks, flowing maxis, and chic bodycon outfits, adding a hint or an entirety of ethnicity to your Christmas and New Year looks can be a heart-winning deviation. Indian wear today has evolved to be at par with and even lead global trends. Contemporary dressing options like palazzo sarees and Anarkali gowns are easily adaptable to suit the merrily sophisticated Christmas and NYE ambiance.
It’s now the best time to plan your Christmas and New Year’s Eve 2022 looks. Here’s a curated list of ethnic and fusion styles to get you started!
1. The Contemporary Factor
Is your Christmas week going to be about house parties? If yes, then we’re sure it’s going to be a perfect festivity ahead- allowing you to spend quality time with your friends and relatives and make memories to cherish. Whether you’re the host or the guest, trends with comfort- should be your wardrobe mantra. A relaxed fit Kurti or a minimalistic jacket palazzo suit in light fabrics, fine prints, and simple embroideries would give you a heads-on to make an impression.
2. Power of Classics
Give in to timeless details for an undisputed charm. Organza sarees are a fashion-forward trend of the decade. Floral prints would do well for Christmas week. For NYE, you may want to add some dazzle and shimmer. Sequin sarees are another party staple you can consider wearing- go for a bold-cut blouse or sheer panels to add some oomph!
The inherent beauty of ethnic wear is hard to resist, especially if you’re rooted in Indian culture. And that makes it a dress code worth flaunting even on a strictly West-based festivity. As an Indian, you’re born with the knack for carrying-off ethnic wear very gracefully. Floor-length Anarkali suits, ethnic gowns, and skirt-crop top coordinates are options worth trying out for a formal Christmas dinner, a community gathering, or a New Year celebration with your family.
4. Drape it with Grace
Yes, our very own saree ensemble is an ultra-graceful and sensuous choice for any of the Christmas festivities- including a suave NYE bash! Glam it up with a sizzling blouse and high heels for a new-age Bollywood feel. How about gracing a dance party in a flattering golden, electric blue, or red sequin saree– in your sparkling best all through the countdown hours! You can also trade off your draping tasks with the comfort of a pre-stitched or readymade saree.
5. Wine & Dine
Oh, those swish drink & feasting hours- raising a toast to new beginnings- it’s a spotlight moment you wouldn’t want to miss! Get all eyes on you with a statement outfit designed for attention at first sight! For colors- we vote the inherently extravagant wine purple palette and styles that exude minimalism. For trinkets, a pair of diamond earrings should suffice!
6. A Dose of Flounce
It’s the season to wear your pretty frills and ruffles- put together with trending silhouettes of the season. A plain saree with a vintage ruffle blouse, a flowy-flouncy Kurti dress, or a multi-colored frilly skirt- how would you celebrate your zestful version?
Alternatively, a pre-stitched ruffle saree is what you need for a quick-ready evening!
7. Cocktail Accents
You can give a new-age twist to your go-to plain silk or georgette saree by pairing it with a sizzling-sassy designer blouse. The little bodice can work wonders- choose the right highlighting details to make an instant impression at urbane dinners.
8. The Black Staple
A black outfit is always an in-thing for the party season. Whether it is a plain black chiffon saree, a black jumpsuit, or a snazzy black palazzo paired with a strappy corset top, you’re always ready to nail the look with black. Choose one with sequins and glitters- or details that reflect the magical feel of Christmas!
9. Pretty in Pink
Pink tones are always a Yes for any celebration! With its chirpy and exuberant feels, you can grace the festivity wearing your favorite shade of pink. A chic, long tunic, a dreamy gown, or a contemporary silhouette with a high trend quotient will give you a peppy, girly feel with a whole lot of feminine charm. From soft pastels to hot pink- the palette is pretty in every form!
An Anarkali gown or Kurti, well-fitted at the waist and generously flared at the bottom, gets an upvote for all types of merriment lined up in the finale week of 2022. The imperial silhouette promises to enhance your frame while adding a youthful feel in tune with the Christmas and NYE ambiance.
The year 2022 is all about rejoicing in the beauty of happier times. Let’s make the last few days of the year the most gorgeous and keep cheering up with gratitude!
