Not always you feel like getting out of the home fully dressed up in ethnic wear like salwar suits and sarees, but still feel like being in touch with your ethnic roots. Well here are few tips for you to explore the quirky desi version for a stylish fusion look….
Indulge in Ethnic Prints– Try teeming up with ethnic prints like kalamkari, bagh, bagru for tops, shirts, kurti’s with denims and basic trousers. Prints look good with plain bottoms like trouser, skirts etc and you can go vice versa too.
Denim jackets and skirts– A tank top and denim shrug or a jacket can be easily teemed with a long flared skirt. Long exaggerated Tassels on the skirt look quite catchy and give a desi appeal to the entire look.
Waistcoat will do the trick– Any garment can be turned to look desi by adding a embroidered waistcoat to the ensemble. Pair it with denims, shirts, kurti’s or a simple long flair skirt to add a colorful vibrant Indian touch to the garment.
Pairing jacket with a lehnga– Got a pretty lehnga but do not wish to wear it the typical choli and dupatta way, then try this look and you will make the heads turn for sure. A simple white shirt and a suit jacket to go with it. Complete the look by wearing a traditional piece of jewelry.
Use traditional jewelry pieces– If you want to instantly give a desi appeal to any garment, wear nice traditional jewelry pieces like neckpiece, earrings, bangles and you will instantly hit the look.
Choose traditional footwear– Go in for traditional Indian footwear styles like Jutti and kolahpuri chappals for a desi look. They go perfectly with all the western garments like denims, dresses, skirts etc.
