WHITE: THE COLOUR OF GRACE - Lakshita

WHITE: THE COLOUR OF GRACE

Posted by Lakshita on

"God paints in many colours, but he never paints so gorgeously, I had almost said so gaudily, as when he paints in white." - G. K. Chesterton

Often associated with innocence, purity, and serenity, the colour white has successfully managed to never go out of trend. Such is its allure, that a basic white summer dress or a basic white kurta for women is as essential as a pair of blue jeans in every woman’s wardrobe. We saw how renowned Indian filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali used the colour white in the movie Gangubai Kathiawadi to convey a powerful message. In one of the scenes, the main character can be seen talking about the various shades of white with reference to the moon, clouds, swans etc. Not only by him, but the colour white is also often employed by others as well in creative fields ranging from fashion to marketing.

When it comes to ethnic wear, the colour white enjoys a very special position. The charm of a woman clad in pretty whites, be it a simple pure white salwar suit or a white kurta sharara set, has always been unmatchable, no matter what the latest trends are or what the occasion is. The craze for this colour is only increasing, with more and more Asian brides embracing this colour for their wedding festivities. Even when it comes to casual wear for women, white is very much preferred by all.

We, at Lakshita, are equally obsessed with this colour as well, and this obsession can be seen in our designs, for example, our white floral kurtas. In fact, if this article has convinced you to get yourself a brand new white kurta or kurti by now, we would urge you to first explore our collection of white kurtis online.

Another thing we would like to draw your attention towards is how there are multiple ways of wearing white-coloured garments. White, being a neutral colour, goes well with everything. A white chikankari short kurti worn along a rani pink dupatta, or a white cotton salwar paired with a printed kurta looks straight out of a bollywood movie. Not only this, instead of letting that white cotton anarkali kurti sulk in a corner of your closet, wear it with your favourite pair of bottoms and instead of traditional footwear, complete the look with sneakers of your choice. No other colour gives you this much freedom, so why not unleash your inner fashionista, especially when it comes to your white clothes? However, while doing such experimentations, be mindful of the fact that some things are better left untouched. An off-white kurta set with a dupatta does not need too many modifications, a pair of white leggings will not look good if ripped.

To sum up, it can be said that although it’s nice to give a try to every latest style and colour, do not forget to stick with your basics, especially when it comes to women’s clothing. Colours like white and black are evergreen, and will always be. So take out your whites and build the perfect summer closet this season with Lakshita! You know we have got it all, and would very much like to help you steal the spotlight on every occasion with our carefully curated creations.
