Hi, my loves! Hope you all have been doing well. With all the festivities coming to an end, your Indian outfits are probably sitting at the back of your closet and may never see the daylight again. Most of your favourite bloggers out there may have helped you with your Diwali outfits, but hey, what now? Well, I bring you this post to help you solve your outfit woes. So let’s get practical and reuse them to create something brand new. Our Indian fashion scene may have been already introduced with modern elements like ethnic cigarette pants under long kurtas, capes over lehengas, formal shirts as cholis (blouse), etc. But let’s just take a rather different route and merge two completely different and versatile items. Personally, I really love incorporating traditional pieces into my western outfits and this look is just one of those times when I wanted to go all ‘Urban Desi’.
I’m a big fan of jumpsuits, simply so because I love the concept of putting on just one piece. They’re a no-brainer piece and take all the guesswork out of getting dressed. Here, I’m wearing a navy blue culottes jumpsuit. And I’ve teamed it up with a front slit kurta, worn it as a long cape to add that Indian touch to my outfit. I threw in a pair of blue earrings and a pair of ochre block heels to compliment the entire look.
Ditch your regular Indian outfit, go ahead and mismatch. All you need is a little bit of your personal creative touch and you’re all set to rock any outfit! I hope you enjoyed my take on Indo-western wear. I’m looking forward to see how you doll up. Do share your take with me on Instagram! (@anchoredmystyle) And follow me to see such more outfits.
Much love and virtual hugs,
