How to make a twist on tradition

In our previous posts, we've talked about how you can style certain pieces within your wardrobe such as a kurta set in different, unique ways. Recently we even deep dived into the history behind go-to-items like the sari so you can truly understand the purpose behind these pieces and how they’ve evolved over time.

So today, we’ve decided to share our top tips on how to wear your indo-western clothing the right way, to ensure you instantly turn heads at any occasion or simply feel fabulous whilst working from home.

In fact, this is why we love indo-westwen wear so much, because as it’s fusion fashion, style possibilities are endless. From mixing and matching embroidered crop tops with jeans to adding a modern twist on your classic dupatta set with a beaded jacket,

Below we highlight the different ways in which you can easily enhance elements from your current collection with our glamorous garments whilst still feeling comfortable and chic. 

1. Kurta Sets

You now know how to style a traditional kurta set, but how can you wear this wardrobe staple whilst doing household errands in lockdown or at your upcoming cocktail night with the girls?

We find this is one of the easiest ways to experiment with Indo-western style, as a simple pair of jeans could be paired instantly with a long anarkali or Kurt top.

Short Kurta's can also be doubled as a semi-casual shirt, meaning it does not need to be tucked in, hence making these the perfect pieces to be paired with jeans or long trousers at any event.

2. Saris

Why not de-construct your sari set and style your embroidered blouse with leggings? 

Turn up the heat by combining your crop top with relaxed fit trousers and join this fresh fusion trend today.

Or try belting the look at the waist, creating some structure within this iconic drape look. Have some fun and wrap the palau around the neck as one would with a scarf for an ultimate on trend look or tuck it through the blouse for another contemporary take.

3. Lehengas

Another rising trend within indo-westwern fashion is matching your traditional lehenga with a staple leather jacket.

This may sound like a slightly unexpected combination, but that’s exactly what indo-westwen clothing is all about!

Perfect for warmer days, this was actually a style that Lisa Haydon first rocked during couture week at a Monisha Jaising fashion show and provided many with a moment of reckoning.

The search for something new and trendy is never over and this is definitely one we love. Wear with the blouse layered over a crisp white shirt tucked into the skirt or take it one step further with a pair of classic white sneakers or black heeled boots, perfect for a more casual setting.
