This year in color has possibly been our favourite one so far, the spectrum has been delightful to indulge in leading to a lot of room for experimentation. And for the current monsoon season, we are trying to stray away from the usual dark hues and leaning towards a warmer and richer palette for that feeling of warmth and coziness.
We took the liberty of picking our top 6 colors to make your own this season. And it’s just your luck that these on-trend colors are part of the Red Dot Sale.
A warm tone of alluring pink which bursts of femininity and understated opulence is just what makes this color a wardrobe must-have. To express this color best, we went with a straight-fit kurti with beautiful blooms down the back and front paneling, making for a fresh look. Perfect for hosting a chai-party with steaming pakoras while you watch the rains with your besties and reminisce about your college days.
Yellows might seem intimidating to adopt but once you do, it’s all sunshine and happiness. This trending tone of yellow is deeper and warmer vs a sunny yellow. Making it easier to pair with dark tones of ruby red and emerald green. Also, just the right color to channel some joy when the monsoon rains are beating down. Perfect for a monsoon wedding sangeet or an intimate celebratory gathering.
No conversation about the monsoons would be complete without touching upon how romantic the season can be. At the end of a long week, an at-home dinner date is just what you need. Some light sufi music playing in the background complementing the pitter-patter of rain while you and your other half indulge in some quality time. An evening like this can only be made better with some visual beauty. A kurta in a deep warm tone of jester red with button-down detailing and slits serve just that. Style it with accessories in gold to enhance this trendy color.
Every season has its fair representation of earthy colors, in comes this mossy green to give your monsoon fashion a touch of warrior-woman-like feel. This militaryesque color can be paired with bright colors as well as neutral tones. We choose this kurta to celebrate the color because of its soft sheen and neutral colored pattern which emphasize the gorgeousness that is moss green. Perfect for a day of work or even a lunch date at your favorite terrace restaurant, where you can watch the thunderous beauty of the season from afar.
Just like there is a shade of pink to match everyone’s unique taste, there is a shade of blue for the same. This season the blues are reigning strong, from deep navy blues to this more cheerful shade of blue which just oozes of lightness and calm. A tunic in this color is just what you need on a Monday morning when you’re braving the rains to head to work. Style it with darker shades of blue and silver accessories.
While whites are a gamble to wear in this weather, an on-trend alternative is this gossamer shade of beige. Treat the color as you would your basic whites, and mix it with every other color, for a sophisticated look mix with pastels and whites and for a celebratory look pair with bright colors like maharani pink and peacock blue and ruby red. With the monsoons being packed with wedding occasions galore, this chanderi churidar set is the much-needed breath of fresh air you will need from the usual clutter of standard wedding colors.
