Beauty Of Black And White
No other color conveys as many contradictions as the color black, and that's probably why it's arguably the most loved color in fashion. Then again, black is unanimously agreed in most cultures to be the most appropriate choice for occasions that contain sorrow or mourning. White, on the other hand, is a chromatic colour - a colour without hue. It is one of the most common colours in nature. It is the colour of sunlight, snow, milk, chalk, limestone and other common minerals. White represents or signifies purity, innocence and light. Together, they pair into a charming paradox that perfectly resonates with the glory of this day.
Language Of Our Hearts
Bangla is not just a language, it is a bond. It is almost a spiritual connection. From the time we are born, the very first word we hear is “Ma” (meaning mother). As we grow older, we form such a special connection with this language. We express love, pain and joy in Bangla. It is a language that circles our entire life. The Bangla words in black punjabi paired with white payjama talk of the deep love we have with our mother language.
Sari is something you can never go wrong with. The black sari with simple white motifs combines elegance and perfection. Make-up with this attire should be kept light and natural. A beautiful black teep signifies the zeal of this timeless look. Punjabis in primary black with a dash of white patterns not only reflects the mood of the day but also compliments the color of the season. After all, there can be no better choice for men other than traditional punjabis.
We speak in Bangla with pride and joy. On 21 February, you can include words or letters of Bangla to showcase your love towards it. In black background with minimal white designs, the words or letters stand out creating an impression of reverence. Nothing else can be a better fashion for Ekushey February than this.
