Wearing one colour palette for an entire season seems boring and dull. Why not alternate warm and autumnal tones with strong hues much loved by millennials? There is always some room for peppy shades and fun designs in our wardrobes. Ã‰lan knows it well and so they have mixed a variety of staples featuring everything from retro vibes and androgynous looks to feminine, funky styles and subdued monochromes in their recent Essentialsâ€™ range.
Spot it right
Polka dots are a tricky trend to pull off but this one has stolen our hearts. With over-sized gold embroidered dots and inset lace details over an off-white pure Italian linen base, â€˜Gold Dotâ€™ is a fashion forward statement shirt which fuses masculine cuts with sensuous femininity.
Elan suggests that winter borrows from boy’s fashion and this quirky boyfriend kurta in lovely shades of grey and cheerful blue is an example of just that. Titled â€˜Meow Mixâ€™, the shirt also has a statement embroidered cat on its pocket and sleeve, making it a must-have for every feline lover out there.
Whatâ€™s most intriguing about this ‘Lilac Blaze’ is its versatility; it can either be dressed up or down, perfect from am to pm, taking you from a casual look to overnight party attire. Complemented with a cinch over waist, 3D floral and pearl detailing, the subtle shade can be further enhanced by chunky necklaces.
Fair & square
Give a break to winter blues and try this powder blue ‘Ice Box’ kurta with a scattered houndstooth pattern in white. It has chunky silver buttons adding an interesting detail even on its sleeves. Pair the minimalistic design with white wide legged pants adorned with embroidered organza.
Trousers a la mode
The collection offers an appealing range of white trousers to pair with these fun kurtas. If you want your feet to do all the talking, opt for straight white pants with neatly pressed fringes at the hem. These will look great with a simple shirt. Ã‰lanâ€™s loose pants with scalloped finishing can surely enhance the style quotient of any outfit. For maximum flattery, wear them with cropped or knee-length kurtis in muted styles.
The line has a piece for every sartorial taste; be it topical embroidery, animal patterns, pale colours or vivacious textures. Check out the full collection here.
