Bring On The Neon
Neon emerged as a trend during Spring Summer 2012 and one whole year down the line, the craze for the eye-popping hues is still going strong. For a tradition-embracing country like ours, the identity of the ethnic textiles & craftsmanship lies in their earthy color palette. But, the modern Indian woman is all for embracing the neon trend in a neo-chic ethnic way!
The ubiquitous Indian kurta has already undergone a makeover & emerged in the form of tunics that are paired with leggings in place of churidars and are flaunted widely by the contemporary Indian women. The kurta-salwar ensemble has now gone a step further and has started making vibrant appearances in fluorescent hues. Designers are opting for eye-blinding color stories for not only salwar-suits, but also lehenga-cholis & even bridalwear! If you are not confident enough of stepping out in full neon gear, then go for pops of neon hues in the ensemble – maybe a neon dupatta with a neutral lehenga or neon accessories with a solid colored suit. Whatever your style, a bit on neon in your Indian outfit will surely jazz things up!
Generally shying away from traditional drapes, the young girls of today have taken refuge in nine yards of fluoro hues. When you want to be a part of any ethnic Indian occasion, but yet want to stand out, go for sarees in neon shades. If you are skeptical of embracing full-on neon drapes, then pair solid colored or monochrome sarees up with neon blouses or accessories! Everyone from celebrities to street-smart, working women are flaunting these vibrant colored drapes to turn heads everywhere from office parties to family occasions.
Ditch the earthy shades, bring on the neon…….it’s here to stay!
