Wondering what to wear for the ongoing party season? The Datta sisters come to your rescue. Jewellery designer Madhu Datta, based in Delhi and fashion designer Rinku Datta, based in Kolkata and United States have come together with their creation for some of the perfect looks for the party season.

Divided in western wear and Indian wear, the collection sees an elegant mix of Indian embroidery on western silhouettes like short skirts.

In the western section, you can choose from a dupian silk dress with a raw silk tunic and a south silk jacket accesorised with bone and horn items in jewellery.

Also in the western wear section is the tissue shirt worn with a short brocade skirt. This attire is teamed with a silver and zircon pendant complete with little stones in garnet and amethyst.

The Indian section is more elaborate and also expensive. Take your pick from a kanjeevaram saree with kantha stitch embroidery and a matka silk suit with kalamkari coat complete with a black onyx on silver jewellery set.

While the western designs are priced affordably from Rs 2,500 to Rs 3,000, the Indian designs being more elaborate flaunt a bigger price tag.
