5 Elegant Ways to Style Your Kalamkari Dress

by Shweta Patel on Aug 29, 2021

Kalamkari or pen-worked is the art of using natural dyes and pens to create beautiful prints. It is one of the oldest hand printing techniques that are both mesmerizing and labour-intensive. This eye-pleasing art took the ethnic fashion world by storm and made its way into every woman's heart. This art form is used to style sarees and salwar. The classic kalamkari suits set for women are timeless and suit every extravagant occasion. Below are five tips to create a contemporary and classic look by elevating your Kalamkari suit set. 

  • Jazz up with jewellery
  • Layering the Kalamkari suit set for ladies with statement jewellery is one of the easiest ways to elevate your look. A pair of dazzling chaandbalis, a chunky necklace or a blingy ring, pick one from the lot or style them all together. Moreover, an oxidized choker will also add the right amount of glam to your classic Kalamkari dress.

  • Drape a dupatta
  • What’s the point of wearing a Kalamkari dress with a dupatta if you don’t flaunt the dupatta? Especially when it features the aesthetic Kalamkari prints. Remember, if you want to be a head-turner, avoid styling the dupatta the old-fashioned way. Instead, fold it off as a scarf or wrap the dupatta over both elbows.

  • Pair the right accessories
  • Sometimes, the latest designer ethnic wear does not radiate the aura as it should! Just grab a traditional potli or clutch and you're good to go. Remember, the quirkier the bag, the higher will be the glam quotient!
