Holiday season is approaching… and you hate last minute shopping for an outfit for an upcoming party. Shop your closets and you will find amazing pieces… don’t have to go hunting for this festival season. Infuse traditional pieces with a jeans or a dress.

Create a trend of your own


Here is a list of key pieces to jazz up any outfit.

  1. Statement Jewelry Piece
  2. Pop of a Color
  3. Jeans – Dress up Your Jeans
  4. Chunni/Dupatta or Scarf
  5. Kurti/Tunic

Tips to get this look right.

1.  Kurti/Tunic:


  • Color, pattern, sparkle, texture – all these elements together can make one item a focal point of an outfit.
  • Always give first preference to a fit which is flattering on your figure.
  • Jewel tones look really great on medium skin tones. Fuchsia pink, turquoise blue, garnet, emerald green.



Look for contrasting or from same color family chunni/dupatta for your kurti and wrap it like shawl or scarf and that adds a character to your outfit. A chunni with border looks great.
Cool Tip: Save your chunni’s/dupatta from old salwar kameej and re-cycle them with jeans to create a new outfit.



Create balance: For a chic silhouette, pair a loose silky fabric tunic with skinny jeans or a slim fit pants and it will balance the billowy piece on top.

Find super flattering jeans at GAP  – my personal Favorite is mid rise skinny jeans  – this is wearable…and of course affordable.

Statement Jewelry:


We all have great collection of jewelry from back home, pull out a key piece from our collection and make a statement or focal point of your outfit.
Statement necklace, earrings are in fashion and they look great with Kurti. I added Jhumkee earrings(traditional indian design from India)



No matter how great is your outfit, a bright smile can make any ensemble into a million dollar outfit.  Confidence is key to look great and feel chic and by adding all these accessories on top is crème on cake.
