Let’s play crafty these autumns with Kracht & Kitsch!


Dussehra has just gone by and all of us have got bored of those heavily embroidered lehengas, sarees, anarkalis and other embellished stuff. Since Diwali is round the corner and we are ready to welcome winters, autumn is playing peek-a-boo with sometimes hot and sometimes cold kinda game. So, it’s time to play safe while dressing for the season. To maintain the hangover of festivities, we will discuss some ethnic trends for the upcoming fall winter season.

Cool Cottons for the Classy you!

Cotton is the safest fabric for the season as it’s the most suitable fabric when it gets humid because of its breathability. But while choosing a right outfit, you must go for a high-thread count material as it would give you adequate warmth when you feel cold sometimes. Also, an ethnic outfit stitched with heavy cotton counts on quality marks, so, it guarantees you to be color-fast and longevity.

Colors for the vibrant you!

Since the season switches the dull mode on, going for bright and vibrant colors is the best choice for ethnic autumn dressing. If you’re looking for a vibrant ethnic evening wear, nothing could be more fun than this label Ritu Kumar SKD with traditional paisley prints in moss green and rust over an off-white base.


The kurta is designed in umpire-cut with an intricately embroidered yoke ( tone on tone resham embroidery ) and teamed up with a rust and green shaded chinon dupatta along with rust colored leggings. The brand name Ritu Kumar is enough to speak class which is furthermore accentuated with load of oxidized silver jewellery. And the cherry on the cake is a rust-colored Ritu Kumar satchel bag made up of genuine leather.


Comfort for the uncomfy weather!

Autumn dressing calls for comfort because the season itself has the mood swings as you suffer from. So, The Style Symphony suggests you to opt for an ethnic attire with comfortable cotton fabric and preferably with full or three-quarter sleeves to offer you maximum coverage and optimum comfort. Synthetic or blend fabric could cause you discomfort as it gets sweaty sometimes in autumns.

Kracht & Kitsch for the autumns!

Call it aplomb, attitude or chutzpah— confidence is the key to look good. And the word for it, is [highlight]Kracht[/highlight]— the power dressing. Today, The Style Symphony brings to you the Kracht look with loads of crafty elements that are garish and loud. The Dutch call it Kracht which proclaims provocative elements but we Indians call it crafty when it’s amalgamated with ethnicity. Today’s OOTD is all about donning a traditional outfit with over-the-top accessories since festivities are infused in the air.
