Clean. Crisp. Classic.
These are but a few traits associated with the color white. White has a purity, a free-flowing, almost ethereal quality that has ensured its permanent place in fashion and style sensibilities through various cultures throughout the ages. A lady in white is radiant, elegant and a vision of pure grace. Is it any wonder then that white is the color of choice for the Christian bride on the biggest day of her life? Or that in Bengal and Kerala, two states in India that are associated with ancient and vibrant cultures, women wear white on festival days and other auspicious occasions? If it is white with fiery red for the Bengalis, it is white with muted gold for the ladies of the Malabar coast. White embodies purity, femininity and tradition in these cultures. But white can also be a bold and breathtaking fashion statement, depending on the wearer and how she chooses to showcase it.
It is breezy, whimsical and the perfect color choice for daytime wear. Think crisp white cotton kurtis paired with palazzo/harem pants or delicately embroidered Lucknowi chikan suits or even a white sari paired with a perfectly tailored contrasting blouse! White is just as stunning a color for parties and eveningwear because it is incredibly versatile and is a great blank canvas for striking color contrasts by way of bold borders or patterns, blouses and statement jewelry. White can pass off for vintage or modern, traditional or contemporary; it can be dressed up or down, and yet, it always stands out for its pure class. It can be sweetly feminine and ooze serious oomph all at once!
