The last few years have seen a tremendous rise in the popularity of fusion wear for the quirky vibe that it lends to one’s appearance. Fusion clothing is not only loved for its fun eccentric air but also because it gives that little kick to your regular Indian wear. A subtle Indo western piece here and there with your regular wear and you will be surprised how it can actually upgrade your look altogether.
So what are some of the hottest indo-western trends that you must have in your wardrobe this year? Read on to find out:
Anarkali with Sharara
Anarkali is undoubtedly the winner in all Indian clothing. Anarkali salwar suit has given women the ultimate Indian wear for all occasions. The great thing about Anarkali is that it suits all body types in a flattering manner. So what’s new this year? Shararas! Shararas have made a huge comeback this year and now these Pakistani style bottoms are killing it paired with Anarkali kameez. The voluminous bottom adds layers to the whole outfit making it more dramatic. Throw on a dupatta with some metallic jewels and there you have it! A cool yet traditional look ready in minutes. For some added glamour, match up with a traditionally woven Banarasi or Chanderi dupatta.
Kurta with Palazzo
Another hit this year has been the palazzo style trousers that can be seen by women sported with almost everything. From crop tops to kurtas to dresses and Anarkali. Cotton printed palazzos with solid top-wear can look amazing. Go for long kurtas with block printed palazzos for a rustic yet modern look and finish it off with traditional jewelry and Jootis.
Bandhej has stood the tests of time and why not? This tie & dye technique has been loved by masses through ages and there is no way we are letting it go yet! This year, you will see more of Bandhej patterns in salwar suits, Indo western jackets, and dupattas. Experiment with Bandhej printed pieces for unique put together styles.
Indo Western Dresses
Who doesn’t love a nice summer dress? But a fusion dress? Well, we urge you to drop the little black dress this time and turn to printed cotton fusion dresses. These cute dresses are smart and can give you a pretty chic look if you mix up all the elements correctly.
For the last few years, there has been much hype about coordinate outfits where two pieces of top and bottom wear are put together usually in the same fabric that give out a monotone yet signature look. Go for kurta and trouser, crop top and cigarette pant, Kurti with dhoti pant and other such sets for avant-garde fashionable looks. Pair up with statement jewels and Indian traditional footwear.
Kurti with Lehenga/Skirt
Another trend that seems to be catching up with folks is that of skirts with short Kurtis that give off a lehenga like a vibe while keeping your outfit subtly out of the box. We must say this is a trend worth following if you like your style to be different. Finish your look with statement necklaces and a stylish dupatta.
