The first thing I said to myself when I discovered Onu Oru, at a flea market that takes place every few months in the city, was that “This stuff looks so stunning and so comfy at the same time!”. In case you haven’t noticed already, I’m all about the comfort and this particular brand is a total win for people like me! It is just so effortlessly breezy and has this raw, nomadic appeal to it which just mesmerizes you in the first go. The skirts are vibrant and multihued, the sarees please the eye to a whole new level and their “lazy pants” will make you look uber cool even on a day you just want to lax out.
Here’s my post with some of my favorite Onu Oru pieces (Local Ladki total recommends you add at least one of these, if not all, to your wardrobe!)
Like the accessories? They’re from The AnaRae Store 😉
This shrug screams versatility with all the colors and prints it has. It can be paired with an all blank ensemble, like I did or you could even throw it on a long flowy solid colored kurta or long shirt. Ideal to wear to college or add a little shine to a dull day at work!
Yes. She’s beautiful isn’t she? Told you so! This skirt is beyond gorgeous and I don’t think it should be paired with anything that steals its thunder. I stuck to a plain white shirt and accessorized modestly as well. You could also pair it with a black Chinese collared sleeveless shirt or a short kurti that compliments the colors.
Mixing prints could be tricky so make sure while doing so, you stick to prints that are not too dramatic individually and blend together perfectly when you put them together. If you’re not into the whole “print on print” trend, you can pair the pants with a cute crop top and you could pair the top with a pair of culottes or tight fitted black leggings. This outfit is the ultimate chilled look. Throw on accessories like earrings or a statement neck piece to make it look more girly and interesting.
Each piece at Onu Oru is handcrafted, embroidered and/or hand-painted by a team of skilled artisans. They are inspired by various tribal art forms and always try to incorporate the same in their designs.
