Plazzo pants or trouser pants a 70’s style statement have been doing the rounds of the Indian & Pakistani fashion scene this spring summer. Palazzo pants are wide legged pants something like bell bottoms which can be paired with different key pieces in your wardrobe. They are great for summer as they are generally made from light fabric.
Designers have been pairing palazzos with kurtas, crop tops, long jackets and more for a contemporary look. From silk bottom to embroidered palazzos they are there everywhere. If you are planning to attend a cocktail event for an Indian function then why not mix it up a little by going for a modern take on the ethnic wear and go for embroidered bottoms with a short kurti.
This outfit is designed by Anaya Textile. The brand is known for their great collection of fabrics which are traditional with a contemporary twist for today’s modern women. They cater to all ranges when it comes to lehengas, bottoms or kurtas, and are known for their customised creations where one can design their own outfit right from the embroidery to the colour palettes.
A cocktail event is a formal event so I wanted to for something on the modern side. I personally feel on such an occasion it is important to make a statement without breaking the bank, and while dress would get too simple and a lehenga or sharara would get too jazzy. Thus I suggest you mix it up a bit with embroidered pants a short kurta.
I kept my jewellery light and stuck to a few key pieces like a long necklace to balance the outfit on top and let the bottoms be the hero of the outfit. Since it was a traditional event I have taken a light dupatta but this outfit looks great even without it as you can see in some pictures.
If it’s a formal event but not on the traditional side then you can even pair the bottoms with a plain silk blouse or a crop top. Since the bottoms are beautifully embroidered try to keep the rest of your look and outfit simple. I have gone for an elegant look with my makeup and hair tied in a low bun, as I wanted a very casual updo and wanted the focus on the embroidery in the bottoms.
You can even create different looks with these bottoms you can pair it with a contrasting blouse and a dupatta or pair it with a knee length kurta. Since the colours on the bottom are neutral you can go for colour blocking with shades of pink, orange, salmon or stay in the safe zone with colours like off-white, gold and blue.
If you are going for palazzo pants with minimal work on the bottom then you can pair it with a heavy top or a dupatta. If it is a formal cocktail event in the evening then opt for something modern like an embroidered gown. If it’s more on the traditional side for a wedding then go for an Indian outfit like an embroidered palazzo and kurta or anarkali.
