Striking the perfect balance between Indian traditional wear and modern western outfits, you have an amalgamation of the two. Literal to the word, fusion wear is now a ragging trend amongst women. Fusion wear composes of fun bright colours, bold prints inspired by Indian motifs and asymmetrical cuts that add a twist to your western outfits.
Since, this is a new trend finding the right way to style this range of outfits. Here are three stylistic elements to dress up any fusion outfit:
Accentuate in Accessories
This is the simplest way to amp up any fusion outfit. Since fusion wear involves mixing various stylistic items to create a fun amalgamation of colours and patterns, use bright dupattas to bring out one striking colour. You can wear the dupatta the old-fashioned way, or choose a different route. Wear the dupatta as a scarf or as a fun piece of headgear to add a radical twist to your outfit.
The second category of accessories you can sport is jewellery. There is a wide range of oxidized silver chunky earrings and necklaces that will add character to your global desi dresses.
Buckle Down on Bottoms
If you choose to pair fun pieces such as global desi kurtis with patterned palazzos, you can upscale the outfit. Adding fun bottoms to vibrant kurtis adds more flavour. The flowy fabric also offsets the traditional look of the kurti. If you prefer a more structured look, you can opt for straight fit pants in neutral colours against a pattered kurti.
If you want to embrace your inner “Geet” from Jab We Met, pair a short kurta with a fun ethnic skirt to showcase your fun playful side.
Mix and Match
The rule of fusion wear is mastering the art of mix and match. Since, fusion wear is fun and outgoing, experimenting with different prints, patterns and textures is essential. There is an ongoing trend of pairing different prints with one another. Get out of your comfort zone and play with prints such as stripes, chevron, polka dot and Indian motifs. Experiment with embroidery and embellishments as well.
Style with Shoes
Finally, the last piece of the puzzle is your footwear. In addition, although fusion wear strays from mainstream fashion a little, this does imply you can pair sports sneakers with a kurti. Embroidered Kolhapuris, with gold embellishments. Patterned jutis in vibrant colors or sandals with a small heel will do wonders for your fusion wardrobe.
