The year is about to end and countdown to welcome the New
Year is on. Festive season parties are calling for celebration and your
wardrobe might need a revamp.  Wearing even
the best traditional salwar kameez or anarkali
can be mundane, and the trendiest contemporary western dress might not earn you
any appreciation. Mixing them up, however, can make you stand apart from the
crowd. Indo- western fusion outfits are simply the amalgamation of western
outfits with Indian taste.


The best thing about this fusion is that it can never
be monotonous. Combinations vary with each person’s preferences. Short kurtis, even ponchos are replacing the
traditional knee length ones; jackets and kaftans are replacing dupattas. Same mix-up can be applied to
lower garments. Salwars can be replaced with straight pants or palazzo, teaming
with a long kurta. They neither look
heavy in terms of work, nor too casual. The traditional saris and lehengas can
also be given a contemporary western touch with halter and sphagetti strap
blouse and tops.

Many fusions have already become a rage, sample the
Indian styled gowns. Adding a dupatta in the free flowing gown is the best
substitute for heavy anarkalis to wear at big family events. Carrying them in
parties is simple and efficient. There is no restriction, what so ever be the body
type. Always remember the occasion, and then choose the combination that suits
you best and accessories accordingly.

Handling a clutch is always better than taking care of
a hand bag in parties if you have petite frame. To compliment your dress,
fusion jewelleries are also available, with a touch of elegance in the
traditional design.


Even Bollywood celebrities have been posing in such
outfits at international events. Sonam Kapoor turned heads at Cannes film
festival wearing a western styled sari.


Wonders can be done even by adding a traditional
element of Indian clothing in the western garments, like phulkari embroidery or
rajasthani mirror work on jackets and gowns. Nargis Fakhri also wore a black
gown with amazing mirror work.


This fashion vogue is not just a woman’s thing
anymore. Men’s world too seems flooded with the same. Addition of
sophistication of western suits in the ethnic sherwani is common now-a-days in
fashion world. This experimental mix-up, when based upon the event, can produce
an outfit to give you a look ranging from casual to royal.

Therefore, ditch the common wear and quickly hop into
the world of indo-western fusion dresses, and create a statement of your own.
Options of combinations are endless and the only limit is your imagination.
Explore your fashion quotient this New Year with indo-western fusion dresses
and accessories. Go even crazy with experiments, if you feel like, but don’t
leave your comfort zone.

Have a happy new year.
