Every year we get a trend, a fashion statement that we begin to see everywhere and suddenly we resign ourselves not only to its ubiquity but to its sartorial relevance. Such is the charm of this season’s seemingly most popular trend. A green velvet ensemble. Velvet in autumn-winter always works wonderfully because of it’s heaviness and it’s inherent sheen. The fabric is royal, and in bold colours looks absolutely perfect for dark, brisk nights! The green adds to the texture of it with variants such as emerald and bottle-green! Plus the whole look has got celebrity approval already.
Both acting powerhouses, Taapsee Pannu and Priyanka Chopra stepped out in shades of green velvet, and looked absolutely ethereal! Pannu’s Abhinav Mishra was full of golden embroidery, and a gherdaar sharara with an organza -chiffon dupatta that is perfect for a sangeet! Pairing it with golden chaandbalis and a braided hair-do, Taapsee Pannu looked every bit festive and elegant!
Priyanka Chopra, in Anita Dongre, on the other hand wore a muted yet strong shade of green with white and silver embellishments and accessories, a bunch of glass bangles. Even though in idea the two outfits are conceived similarly, the execution and the nuances are significantly different! The neckline of Chopra’s kurta, and the minimal palazzo pants make it for a graceful outfit for a Diwali party, or even a pre-wedding Cocktail bash! So, we suggest you invest in a green velvet outfit as soon as possible!
