Ethnic wear gets a fusion twist this festive season
Festive time brings us back to our roots; it’s a season to celebrate traditions, age-old rituals and wearing outfits that define our culture.
The quintessential saree reflects the desi-connect to our customs and festivals. Who says you can’t look your traditional best in other ensembles. The biggest trend ruling the fashion circuits is fusion wear.
It’s all about a harmonious blend of ethnic aesthetics with western sass. Rock the Indo-western with style with some tricks that help you slay this festive season.
It’s time to revel in festivities, welcome and revere Goddess Durga. Apart from religious rituals and ceremonies, Durga Puja translates to fun-filled days of pandal hopping, relishing delicious food and stepping out in your stylish best. Bring a subtle balance between modern and ethnic outfits. Let out the bold new avatar, and turn into a stunner in fashionable fusion ensembles. And we will tell how to achieve the look…
For the beautiful belles out there, Bling is definitely IN this festive season. Team your lehengas in metallic colours in delicate prints with intricate embroidered velvet top or a rich silk blouse. Keep the jewellery muted with either a pair of jhumkas or a statement neckpiece. Give a trendy edge to your style – with sequined sneakers or keep it elegant with colourful mojris. Ace the fusion look with maxi dresses and double-layered ankle-length anarkalis with traditional designs in flowy fabric. Nail this look with bold jewellery and glamourous make-up.
For the men who prefer traditional - Silk kurtas with metallic motifs paired with a contrasting jacket or waistcoat are the best picks. Round off the look with straight-legged pants and dark-coloured shoes. For those who like to mix traditional and contemporary – pick a Nehru jacket in a deep colour and pair it with a printed shirt and chinos. And for festive dinner outings, look dapper in a well-fitted blazer or own the leisure look with a printed shirt and trousers.
For the little ones, let them shine in traditional cold-shoulder gowns or even jumpsuits teamed with cute, floral shrugs. For the kids, keep it casual with graphic t-shirts, cargo pants, denim and printed leggings. Enjoy!
