Our primary reason to pick this Paulmi and Harsh outfit for Baisakhi is its ability to transform into a cute summer dress in the months ahead.

We also believe that the yellow and pink diamond butti print palazzo pants that come as a part of the set can be paired with multiple other outfits in times to come.
