The perfect festive look

Demands are more but capabilities are less. Choices dwindle, time passes and we suffer. The onset of festive season brings along with it demands of style to satisfy the curious looks of the onlookers; demands of dignity to satisfy the elderly people in the house and finally demands of vibrant colours to satisfy the festive mood that fills the atmosphere.

Style reflects our attitude. Its speaks of our desire to look appealing to others. It gives one the power of attraction to draw the large crowd. It makes one the prince or the princess of the college. It is the reason for fellow employees to feel envious and an opportunity for nature to lay prostrate in admiration of our sense of style that matches own- the style evident in its choice of colours- blue, brown and green forming the basis of a child’s drawing; the style evident in its movement- preferring to follow zigzag lines led by the stones rather than be entropically stable and the style evident even in its fury when the branches of lightning- so glamorous, attractive and ordered, strike the earth.

Dignity draws the attention of the educated and the informed. It is the driver that leads to the success of business proposals. It is the backbone of official etiquette and the reason behind the extra curiosity in the eyes of the onlooker- much more evident than in those eyes that stare at style and stylish people.
A festive occasion demands more. It represents the culmination of style and dignity. Relatives appreciate, visitors admire and Gods bless. One needs a look that appeals, a look that exposes your love, a look that cares for others and a look that makes others comfortable. It is all about the balance between style and dignity- the opposite sides of a deformed coin that partly match.

This festive season, if I am to shop from Shopper’s Stop, the following would be the flow of thoughts that might move through my mind.

The barest minimum that an individual demands is a pair of clothes and for this festive season- a kurta pyjama made vibrant with colours and glittering beads would be the obvious choice. A suit would look too dignified, a casual clothing wouldn’t make the occasion special and hence the following selection.

Next in order comes the footwear. Something that if light to look at and is in coordination with the dress would be an obvious choice.

Timing makes a man perfect and the watch that drives time needs special attention. Analog watches with a metal strap featuring multiple dials go well with all types of clothing and so it does, here too.

An ornament or two enhances the look of every individual: be it a man or a woman. Shoppers stop doesn’t offer too much in this area for men and one has to be content with the following three rings. ( Three rings would be too much for an occasion as glamorous as a festival )

And here is what would result from the virtual shopping.

All set, the festivities are to begin with a demand to indulge deep in celebrations.
