The Desi Chronicles

The Desi Chronicles

The definition of ‘traditional’ has become a kurti, leggings and dupatta. If you, like us, have become tired of wearing the same style again and again, look no further, because we at Knick Knack Nook have brought for you- The Desi Chronicles, where we have curated for you a series of looks that leave the system behind.

Three looks, three different outfits with a set of somber, quirky and fun accessories for you to try out this summer.


Numero Uno

 Skirts are a must have wardrobe essential, be it this season or the next! Grab a printed long skirt, put on a tank top of any colour and you are all but ready. A plain skirt works too, but make sure to add a contrasting top or prints to balance it out. You can add a dupatta or stole to go with your look. Kolhapuris from the local market work well with this looking, adding an overall desi element to outfit!

Desi Chronicles

Coming to the accessories, we at Knick Knack Nook, recommend coordinating your outfit with the colour of your skirt. Add a statement neckpiece, with the same coloured accents for a seamless blend (available here), incorporating a desi twist in the whole ensemble. Tassels earrings are our favourite trend, and we highly recommend these colourful pieces (check some here); add in our ‘Darpan’ ring (check it out here) for the complete set.

If you are looking for an added element of surprise, be sure to check out our range of clip-on Nose-rings! (See it here) Easy to wear and extremely easy to carry without discomfort or the need for piercing!


Some twists and turns

 We are well aware that Kurtis cannot be totally eliminated from our ‘traditional’ outfits, but why stick to the same cuts and style? Take a deep breath, and invest in a pair of straight pants, or camel-pleated ones, pair them with a flowy kurti in an unusual cut or design to break the stereotypes.

Complete the look with flats or heels at your preference. For accessories, Knick Knack Nook, is here to save the day. Our Marble Orb bracelet goes perfectly to balance the style (See it here). We have a range of neckpieces that will suit any cut and any design, you are welcome to take your pick (available here). We recommend, adding one of our favourite products, Chained in Prague, which will serve the purpose of rings as well as a bracelet! We love how it adds attention to the whole look and a boho vibe!

The Grand Finale

In case you are one of daring edgy types, the next look is just for you! Knick Knack Nook, has a Collection called Quirkee, be sure to check it out, for products channeling the vibe (Take a look here).

For this look, we thought, what would be Out of the box? (we have a ring by that name! See it here)

Dhoti pants are a classic pair of bottom wear! Printed or plain, they look good whatsoever! A pair of jutties will add the desi twist we are aiming for. Add a peplum top to the mix and you have for you a fun look that screams summer!

Since, the outfit has attention grabbing elements, we decided to keep the accessories subtle, yet imbibing the spunk- a pair of our Umrao Jaan round earrings (shop here) and the Turkish Delight charm necklace (Available here). The star of the show, however, has to be our Triveni septum ring, (check it out here).
