OOTD | WEARING A BATIK DRESS

I had to go for a themed party and the theme was Batik. Batik is the process of dyeing textiles with patterns. In Sri Lanka it is quite popular and there are a few designers back home that make the most gorgeous clothes using this method. The dress I bought was a batik dress from Buddhi Batiks. Batik inspired outfits can be quite expensive but the design and styles are unique so you will have something truly unique. If you ever visit Sri Lanka definitely go check out Buddhi Batiks, you will love her designs.

The dress is made from a very soft linen and feel very light on the body. I chose this design because I love black firstly and also because it was a bit different to the usual batik designs. I like geometric designs and this kind of has a bit of it so naturally my eye went to this design.

I wore this with heels for the functions but I think it can be worn even during the day with a pair of flats like I have or even with a pair of wedges. If you wear a blazer I think the outfit will be perfect for work as well.

This weeks outfit is a batik dress quite unique to my style and represents where I am from. A little bit of me shines through my style. What do you think of my OOTD? Have you heard of batik before? Let me know what you think in the comment box below.
