Clothes do Speak!!! Do they???

This post is for my reader N. who asked for latest trends in Indian Suits. I was almost done with the post - had collected these pictures & wrote in detail about the trends that are in vogue etc etc. But, each time I came back to these pictures, an image of a certain type of woman flashed my head. Their clothes, their expressions in the photo, the settings, their hairstyle & accessories - all spoke to me in some way or the other.


So, here I have tried to pen down what kind of "woman" I see in these pictures. These are just my thoughts (maybe a culmination of my beliefs & experiences through these years). Your thoughts and your portray can be same or completely different and I would love to hear that from you.

Now the big question - What kind of "woman" do you most associate with yourself ? It may be just one of these, a mix of two, three or more or may be completely different. Tell me what do you think? I feel myself to be somewhere between 4 & 6, though I would also like to have some streaks of 1 in my personality.


Coming back to the designs, I really liked the 3rd one in which a jacket has been added over the suit and a light net dupatta has been used to balance everything. The traditional Sabyasachi (2) wherein only border has been used for designing is perfect for all occasions. The white kurta in 4th is a must for summers and the last one is a smart alternative to traditional suits. 1 is the most delicious shade of orange, perfect for weddings & other family affairs.

Have a lovely lovely weekend ladies (as for me I have this humongous task of labeling all my posts over the weekend..something that I have been putting off since ages but hopefully will be able to do as my better half will be busy with work :(

Tanvi said...

Love this post lady! ... Very well assessed ... I too find myself between 4 & 6 and aspire to be somewhere between 2 & 3 :o)

I love no. 6..what a beautiful salwar kameez..as for what kind of woman I am..I am a woman who doesn't take no for an answer and someone who can transition easily between tradition and modernity:P I totally wish I could wear more salwar kameez here but don't get a lot of opportunity to!

Sovina said...

@ Ruth- thanks sweetie :)

@style she - thanks..glad u found it interesting

@kiran - thanks dear :)

@tanvi- you know when i saw ur comment, i kinda guessed that u wud choose 4..i think it has also got to do with the fact that I(we) are here in US but have our roots back in india..and 3 is way to go..i would like to try that sometime when i go to india :)

@style she - 6 is the best style..i really loved the pants and the front open design..if i would have been in india i would so totally wear it to a formal event..here i also do not get much chance to wear suits except for some indian get togethers that we have with our friends.

Tamanna A. Shaikh said...

Wow!! I love how you have very very well psycho-analysed these looks!! Very witty. I am sure I am 2, quite sure of 6 and somewhat 3. And I guess I'm content! :) Love the suits boy!! Especially the third one!

Noble Beeyotch said...

I am a huge fan of salwar kameez and wear them very often in the summer.Even though I am gravitating a little towards the design of the 2nd one, going by personality I'd be somewhere between 1 and 4. This was a fun post!
