Layering could transform the entire mood of an ensemble. Pick this stole for a practical yet beauteous piece of layering. An inimitably gorgeous red for the foundation colour makes this the perfect addition to one's trousseau or a statement addition to one's wardrobe. The aesthetics and sensousness of a Kashmiri woollen is unmistakable. A statement-making base colour, high-precision embroidery that is also endemic to the valley (ari, in this case), and an aura of the regal about the moment you put it on. From the monotone tassels along the edges to the natural colour palette employed for the embroidery, everything about this stole is irresistibly beautiful and flirtatious.
It is fashioned from the pure homegrown wools, and is a fine example of the highly coveted Kashmiri handiwork. Signs of the latter could be gleaned by zooming in on the luxuriant, richly coloured ari embroidery that dominates the foreground. Team this with your choicest Indian suit or saree, preferably a neutral-coloured one that is low on the embroidery, in order to bring out the best of this number. Such a stole would serve to keep you warm yet fashionable-looking when the galas run a tad late into the evening.
