If there’s one thing the crisp fall weather gives you total license to do, it is cozy styles with a hint of glam. Fall is the time to play with textured fabrics, enchanting colours and out-of-the box designs. Think of styles that delight your senses: lace, cotton, animal prints, and luxe embroidery; these are Ammara Khan’s seasonal picks for her latest Amber collection. The ready-to-wear range is a beautiful assortment of the designer’s signature prints and elegant solid designs, blending fall’s vivid shades with sorbet hues.
Renowned for her refined craftsmanship and fusion of classic styles with contemporary finesse, Ammara has created a line which caters to the best of both worlds. There are a few elaborate pieces, which can be worn at dinner parties while others are chic yet breezy enough to be donned for laid-back evenings.
Here’s our top 6 style picks from the collection…
This deep green number with over-sized maroon buds is a show-stealer. With intricate pleats over a boat neck and sleeves, and a dramatic slit at the back, the design offers a commanding appearance. It can either be styled with statement earrings or a long vintage pendant for maximum impact.
Dive into deeper colours; autumn shades are a sure-fire way to remain ala mode in cooler months. While burgundy, orange and navy are some of the season’s mainstays, jewel tones like plum, ruby and emerald can add more vibrancy to your palette. This ruby ensemble with lacy details, appliqué work and sleeves with a tiered effect tops our hit list.
It’s interesting to shake things up a little bit and try pastels in fall, giving way to trans-seasonal dressing. Ammara has chosen a heavier fabric so the muted beige hue looks season-appropriate paired with tangerine appliqué motifs and lacy embellishments.
Want to channel a sophisti-cool look? Get your hands on this boxy shirt with exquisite embroidery and cutwork details. We really loved its scalloped hem; spunk up the peach-pink hue by pairing it up with embroidered Ammara Khan pants, an essential wardrobe staple by themselves.
Perfect for a brunch or a casual hi-tea, this lilac floral kurta is soothing to look at. A calming pastel base with tiny red flowers and hearts are fused with chevron stripes striking the right balance. Frilled sleeves and lace on the hemline uplift the shirt from casual to casual-chic.
Inspired from the French ‘toile de jouy’, the sky blue printed shirt has a rounded above knee hemline with a long back panel. What stands out in the design is its elaborate work on the bodice with a collar, eyelet fabric, pleats and pearl details.
