Kalamkari is a type of hand-printed or block-printed cotton textile that is available in India. In ancient times, this free-hand drawing style is used to illustrate the episodes of the Hindu Mythology. However, the fabric designs include various patterns depicting flowers, motifs, peacocks, leaves and many more. Kalamkari art has been practiced by many families in the Andhra Pradesh and it constituted their livelihood over the generations.
The Kalamkari art Saris have always been popular all over in the southern part of India. But recently they have been the word in every mouth, starting from the dresses & tunics to jackets & jumpsuits. The Maxi/long slit tops have also been seeing a high popularity this year in India. A lot of us have been loving this trend lately and some us might also have some difficulties in finding the right ones we like. I got mine customized from Svana again (read more details about Svana here). I’ve picked this Kalamkari fabric from their material collection and got this Maxi Slit Tunic customized from them. The fit is yet again so perfect and the tunic was so flowy to carry.
I wanted to try an indo-western fusion and paired this with an embroidered jeans from Zara. Both the jeans and the tunic color combo complimented each other and made the look effortlessly fashionable. I didn’t wanted to divert the attention from my tunic, so kept the accessorizing part simple ( just added some blue hangings and a golden bracelet). To add more comfort, I have chosen these blue ballet flats from Mix No.6. So let me know how you like the look in the comments below. Thanks for reading and have a great start for the coming week 😀
