India is a country majorly associated with colour. But this time, Lakmé Fashion Week saw a lot of designers sending their own interpretations of ethnic wear to the ramp in varied shades of black, white and nude. And what made these hues stand out are the details: sequins, beads and a lot of embroidery to keep intact the charm of Indian tradition.

There’s nothing more opulent that hand-crafted embroidery and with designers reinventing the kutchi art, fashion this time will see a beautiful merge of traditional and contemporary thread work on indo-western garments. Think cropped jackets or stiff shirts to introduce the trend to your wardrobe for the festivities to come.

The most comfortable yet chic trend of all--dhoti pants, was seen in abundance on the ramps this fashion week. And it was not the regular salwar or patiala style; there were more detailed versions such as gold, skirt dhotis and sari dhotis that we’re going to keep in mind for the upcoming wedding season.

Ditch the summer’s delicate jewellery layering and opt for chunky gold jewellery that starts from your neck and ends below the bust forming a magnificent empress-like concoction for a royal festive look.

For a cute and girly look, go for a printed babydoll dress and wear it as a kurta on a pair of dhoti pants or with gold sneakers for a relaxed yet glamorous look.
