Khaas Baat : A Publication for Indian Americans in Florida

Happy holidays! It’s Christmas time and we cannot wait for the New Year to begin! Let's celebrate this fun season and dress up for upcoming Christmas and New Year's gatherings, parties and events!

Ladies, the style right now is all about jeweled neutrals. Navy blues, forest greens, and burgundy reds are all the rage. The best part is all you need is some gold or silver jewelry to pop some shine into your look. A navy blue sari with gold earrings and kadas will look beyond royal. A maroon suit with a statement silver necklace and lots of bangles will keep you sparkling like no other!

A simple palette can pack a powerful punch! All over black onyx and white pearl looks are trending high. An all-black sequined sari with black blouse will look oh-so-formal. A white gown like anarkali with white embroidery seems angelic. Just be sure to match your black ensemble with black heels and a black clutch. And your white look with white sandals and a white shawl. So elegant!

Another popular trend now is that of art with multicolors. Graphic prints of scenic, painting and even cosmic looks are the wow factor. Matching them with very neutral accessories won't be too loud or distracting. Don't pair your prints with more prints or added colors. You want to look classy, not clowny. A lengha with a mural design on the choli will reflect well with a solid colored lengha and dupatta. Or, a sari draped in floral print will look just right with a matching solid top. Jewelry should remain minimal at this point, too.

Merry Christmas! Keep up the celebrations and spread the cheer. Christmas feels particularly special because you see it all around here in the states. Shops, restaurants, even streets lined with holiday lights instantly have you feeling festive and bright! The New Year is also upon us! Think positive thoughts and they'll come right back to you, and as always, remember to 'gro' with style!
