Seasons of style

There’s always an occasion for you to sport the best handmade Chikankari embroidery, but that doesn’t mean you have to recycle your look throughout the year. Your style, colour choices and fabric options must vary according to the time of the year. The rule of thumb is to wear dark, cool tones like blue and black in winter and warm pastel shades in summer. However, picking the right ethnic Chikankari ensemble according to seasons requires a little more care.

Pastel shades like this pink ethnic Chikankari kurta from RZUstyle are a great choice for summer

Winters in India vary in their severity depending on where you live, but if you are feeling the chill, you will not be letting the natural elegance of your Chikankari outfit do the talking. Adding layers to your clothing is the best way to go. For best results, add a smart jacket to your Chikankari embroidered kurta, especially one in a contrasting colour. Strap on a pair of warm leggings and matching boots and you’re good to go. You can even pair a Lucknowi Chikan work saree with a Nehru jacket or a smart blazer for a sophisticated look.

For the summer, less is always better. If the sun is merciless where you live, opt for sheer fabrics in pastels while putting together your Lakhnavi Chikankari outfit. Go for pastel shades in cotton with a light slip inside to keep you feeling cool and breezy while looking your classy best. RZUstyle takes just 2-3 days to make a light cotton slip on request matching the closest base colour of the kurta you purchase on our online store. Pair these with a palazzo pant in a contrasting colour, also available when you shop online at, and your summer fashion style will be conquered. Shop online with us at:
