We girls have short memories. At least in terms of fashion. I, for one, dislike adhering to a cookie-cutter style stereotype for an extended period of time. Don’t get me wrong, I adore my basic shirt and denim outfits, but there’s no denying that the want to play and get comfortable weird with my clothing choices strikes every now and again. That being said, I’m not brave enough to put on an utterly unusual outfit and saunter out the door with the confidence of a supermodel. So, for folks like myself who have fluctuating but cautious fashion preferences, the Indo-Western trend has been a genuine godsend.
With a top and distressed denims, wear a long open-front shrug and a silver necklace
If there is an unbeaten queen of channeling the Indo-Western trend to perfection, Aditi Rao Hydari is the one with the crown. The simplicity of a basic lowrise boyfriend jeans and cami top is heightened by this colorful pink and orange open-front shrug, which we truly adore. The massive oxidised silver necklace she wears around her neck completes the outfit. All you need is pulled-back hair with a few loose tendrils and a barely-there face of makeup.
With A Solid Saree, Wear A Wrap Around Blouse
Now, this is how you effortlessly create a modern fusion statement. It’s also the ideal saree style to opt for if you want to spice up your ethnic ensemble without going overboard. All you need is an embellished wrap-around crop-top and a solid black saree, ideally black, because nothing is ever the new black.
Printed Palazzos with White Button-Down
In all seriousness, we can’t get enough of Masoom’s appearance. The high-waisted palazzo trousers with a brilliant pink colour and a delicate play of designs, paired with a traditional somewhat loose white button-down, is a show-stopping fashion moment in and of itself. But our gaze and heart have been drawn to that lovely shackled maang-teeka! A special mention should also be made of the stunning flowery handbag, which flawlessly brings the entire ensemble together.
White Cropped Pants and a Flared Tunic
We’ve discovered the ideal Indo-Western casual day-look for you, and you’re most welcome! A flared-hem patterned tunic kurti is paired with a breezy pair of white cotton cropped trousers, and it doesn’t get more summer-ready than this! Especially if you’ve been looking for Indo-western outfit ideas for work, this look is the place to be! A pair of sliders, juttis, or stunning Kohlapuris will offer the perfect touch of glitz.
Denim Jacket in Light Wash with White Saree
Can we just…take a moment to enjoy this look? It’s so basic yet so appealing that I’m going to try it out the first time I have! To create the archetypal modern boss-woman saree ensemble, a boatneck blouse and lovely cotton saree in white and delicately dusted with pink embroidery are worn beneath a traditional light-wash denim jacket. Pull your hair back in a bun, preferably with exquisite braid accents, and accessorize with a striking cocktail ring.
