The wedding season just doesn’t seem to get over. The fun, frolic, food and fashion go hand in hand. You need to be fashion forward every time you attend a new event. Being fashion forward indirectly means updating your wardrobe as and when required. But over the past few years, have you noticed the evolving nature of Indian wear?
From short suits and patialas to long Anarkalis. But now this trend has taken a sharp turn with Anarkali fashion being obsolete and getting replaced with new current trends with the changing Indian fashion industry.
Manish Malhotra was quoted saying that Delhi people have an obsession with gowns. Also, more and more people in Delhi are demanding gowns from indian designers. This is because like everything we want change and it’s interesting how the western culture has had a strong yet versatile impact on Indian wear.
The fusion wear is so trending these days that there is no end to what you can mix and match. The spectrum is so wide that you get confused whether to go for the fusion or stick to the traditional.
Some interesting and trending fusion Indian wear fads would be:
The Draped Saree
If you have to think twice before putting on a saree, now you don’t. The draped saree concept is new and picking up with Indian designers supporting the effortless saree wearing trend. You just have to put it on like a dress and forget about the hour-long stress of draping and shaping the saree with perfection. Perfect pick when going for destination weddings.
Crop top and Ghaghara
You must have witnessed the crop top revolution in the market recently, but the crop top with the Ghaghara is an upcoming replacement of our very own Ghaghara and choli. It looks a bit westernized with the choli being less bling and jazzy but a great pick for wedding sangeets and mehendi functions.
Peplum jacket with skirt
The peplums might have made a place in your western wear closet but now, even detailed embroidered peplum designed jackets are a great hit. Peplum jacket can be teamed up with embroidered pants or even a long skirt. Both the combinations are quirky yet voguish. Anamika Khanna, one of Bollywood’s favorite designers, is admired for her dexterity in making Indian fusion wear. All her fashion shows have had a spark of blending cultures and turning them into astonishing outfits.
The dhoti saree trend is a sporty one; you need to be really comfortable in your skin to be wearing that. Its not an ordinary fusion, two of indian fashion’s trademark outfits made into one. Sonam kapoor did a fabulous job wearing the dhoti saree, representing India at the International Indian film Academy Awards and the latest at the Cannes 2014. The actress completed her look with a sophisticated bun, a Bottega Clutch and a flabbergasting necklace.
