The chilling North India winters are still killing, but delaying this OOTD post for the last 3 months is all the more annoying thing for us. We received this beautiful black long resham-embroidered kurta from Brijraj Fashion on the onset of winters, but this OOTD got delayed because we ordered a wrong size in haste. In fact, this classic black kurta was so fascinating because of its chic quotient and functionality that we ordered size ‘L’ instead of size ‘S’ and had to wait long for the alteration part. Finally, we are ready today with this OOTD post in association with Brijraj Fashion.
It’s a kurta we’d like to describe with 4 ‘C’s— class, comfort, coverage and charisma. It’s made up of Rayon fabric that is considered to be a soft and kin-friendly material. Though, Rayon is suitable for all seasons, it’s best for winters as it keeps you a little warm and cozy. Embroidered with bold cable-patterns round the yoke, back and sleeves, it is paneled with beige printed fabric which adds to its charm and makes you look slimmer because of its lean cut and tapered design.
We have created four looks especially suitable for winters around this black Brjraj kurta. Since it’s a long kurta, which is quite happening and ‘in-thing’ this season (in fact for the last 2 seasons), this OOTD amalgamates winter essentials, woolens and accessories that are classic as well as contemporary pieces.
Winter party look with lace & pashmina
Black is a classic color so best for an evening soiree or a cocktail party. The long Brijraj kurta is teamed up with a pair of beige colored palazzo pants made up of fine lace along with it. To enhance the class quotient of the outfit, a pashmina shawl is wrapped around. Rust and brown paisley motifs over a fawn pure cashmere adds charm to the whole look and also makes this attire warm and cozy enough for cold winter evenings. Subtle gold, pearl and diamond jewellery perfectly matches the look topped up with gold kitten heels and a transparent box clutch.

Winter brunch look with silk & chiffon
A pair of gold silk churidars and a shaded chiffon dupatta in complimenting hues does the trick. Long kurtas are normally voluminous so wearing them with smart and fitted leg wear is surely a safe bet. Also, adding diaphanous drapes with them enhances the feminine charm and does the balancing trick. This look is suitable for a day-out or for an office brunch party, so accordingly, smart accessories are worn with it. Strappy block heels gels well while a leather day clutch bag in crimson red gives the entire outfit a color block effect.

Winter shopping look with leather and chinon
A pure chinon dupatta in shades of beige and fawn matches well with the embroidery and panels of this long brijraj kurta. Also, we’ve teamed up a classy beige bag from Matties Spain which I’ve bought from U.S.A. about 10 years back. It’s made up of high quality genuine Italian leather which ages beautifully and looks more lavish with time. This look is perfect for a shopping spree or for an outing with friends.

Winter work look with gilet and leggings
Best for working women, especially for teachers and journos! This long kurta is teamed up with a reversible quilted jacket. You can achieve 2 looks with this single gilet apart from the warmth required for winters. A pair of smart, well-fitted leggings for comfort at your workplace, a roomy handbag, kolhapuri chappals, huge chrono watch and loads of junk jewellery for that raw-artsy appeal.
