Sundowners are undoubtedly the latest party trend. Something about drinking and dancing in the sun, as it sets on the horizon, is very reminiscent of beach holidays.
There are a number of important things to consider while dressing for a Sundowner. What colours are best suited for sundowners? Should one wear Indian or western silhouettes? What kind of accessories to choose? Well, let's start answering these one at a time, shall we?
While pastels have ruled the ramp and fashion trend charts for quite some time, nothing pops like a bright chirpy yellow, a striking fuschia or a zesty lime green worn in the warm sunlight. As tempting it is to play safe with pastels, take a chance with something bright. Colours to avoid are rich, dark tones like blacks, navy blues, maroons and bottle greens. These have no place in a bright afternoon party, and will only look drab and forced.
Fun Prints and Silhouettes
As far as silhouettes go, as long as it is fun and comfortable, it's perfect for a sundowner. If you want to go the traditional route, try a saree, it will work as beautifully as any other flowy dress.
Another great idea would be to try interesting prints, either as separates or as an ensemble. These will work best for spring and summer afternoons.
Silver Accessories and Embellishments
Embellishments and accessories are integral to completing a look. Though we are die-hard fans of sparkling gold details, there is something beautiful about how silver gleams in the sunlight. So sundowners are definitely a great place for shiny silver embellishments and accessories. Choose wisely and and don't overdo it. Remember less is more.
