New Delhi–Indian juttis, famously known as Indian ballerina or the Aladdin slippers, are extremely versatile footwear and people have enjoyed wearing it in world’s fashion capitals like London, New York, Paris. So how about teaming it up with the best of western wears and flaunting it in style.
Shireen Mann Sangha, Founder and Creative Director of footwear label NeedleDust Juttis, shares tips on how one can experiment with the age old style of juttis thereby giving it a contemporary look for high street fashion.
* Shirt dresses and culottes have been a trend all this summer, you can up your game by pairing these with our chic denim juttis or better try combining your favourite printed dress with floral graphic juttis.
* Your boxy kurta and crop tops with cigarette pants will look super cute with pastel tones and undertones of gold with light pearl and bead embroidery for all your Sunday brunches and dates.
* Wear trendy motif based footwear with pretty flamingos and umbrellas to go with simple georgette and chiffon tops and tunics to stand out. Pump up your off-shoulder and cold shoulders with rolled up or cropped denims to go with colourful pom pom juttis or fringed footwear.
* With the festivities coming in, go all out and ditch your heels for better comfort with flower cut sequins and heavily embellished juttis with beautiful gold dabka, mirror and tilla work to be paired with your lovely dhoti pants and draped sarees.
* For a breezy look, pair a mint or a powder pink jutti with tissue and organza fabrics in light colours. We have designed a special bridal jutti with traditional palanquins or doli motif for the bride brigade to go with all your bridal wear.
* If you fancy glamour and want to look like a diva for all the card parties this season, go glam with elements like svarowskis and rhinestones on your footwear for a mature yet trendy look.
* If you are a fan of Mughal silhouettes like me, pair your elegant and deep coloured shararas and ghararas with fuschia, red and gold ghungroo juttis this Diwali.
