Indo-Western Style | Kokum

I have been going to a whole lot of Indian wedding functions lately which has completely shifted my focus on Indianwear for the time being. Case in point this anarkali suit that I wore on the blog. But now that all the ceremonies and functions are done with and attended in style, I am finding it slightly difficult to crash back into a total western outfit scenario even for my day-to-day life. Which is why I am gradually transitioning from one look to another, using both styles to compliment each other and unite both Western & Indian for casual-chic day looks which I have even worn to a work meeting. I did look a bit out of place in the beginning but the eyes got used to my look rather quickly so I was happy.

It amazes me each time I take out my trench-coat to see just how versatile it is. You can literally pair it with ANY outfit. I have even worn mine over proper traditional Indianwear and looked just fine. For this outfit I have paired a lovely georgette kurta/tunic from Kokum, in a dual shade of steel grey and powder yellow with matching steel grey trousers (not a part of the kurta set) also worn HERE, my trusty trench and a vibrant and elegant Chanderi Silk dupatta/stole, also from Kokum, draped over the trench-coat and belted with it to form a structured, slightly formal look.

The kurta comes with some lovely, delicate silver embroidery around the neckline and sleeves which is why you don’t really need to wear any accessories in the neck. I have however accessorized with some statement earrings, bright red nails and shimmery silver shoes to finish off the entire outfit.

Kokum is a lovely online store that offers hand-crafted Indianwear like tunics, sarees and some traditional dupattas. With an elegant and classic color palette, Kokum also offers the option of buying semi-stitched tunics for those who don’t trust the online sizing system. You can look and tell that a lot of love and attention to detail has gone into the embroidery and motifs that you will find on their garments.
