It’s the festive season, and quite obviously, everyone wants to wear something different and trendy. A contemporary fashion getting popular in recent times is fusion wear. It is a total saviour, especially when you are stuck in a fashion rut and need a touch of that ‘extra something’ in your simple outfits. The Indo-Western fusion or the Western Ethnic fusion has been one of the biggest and most versatile fashion trends, ever since it started ages ago. Here are some fashion trends to follow this festival season.
Jumpsuit + Colourful Dupatta + Heels +Statement Earrings
Jumpsuits are such a versatile piece of clothing and wearing them as a suit could be one of the most innovative ways to style it. You get the comfort of a jumpsuit and the beauty of a suit at the same time. It’s simple; find a matching dupatta, and jewelry and voila! It’s that easy!
All things shiny and shimmery
For a sundowner, wear something shimmery that works well when the night falls. Go for a metallic top, statement pleated skirt, cropped pants, midi skirt or mini skirt. If you want to underline your sophistication, then you should go wild and try on metallic dress. Or if you want to go ethnic you can try on a shimmery suit, churidars or even a coat for that matter. The result is going to be a very bold look that is both dramatic and voguish.
Kurta dresses became the newest ‘in thing’ this year. Be it a simple, long kurta worn as a maxi dress or just an elaborate, embellished anarkali-style kurta that looks fab sans the churidaar. Alternatively, short western gowns embellished with Indian motifs, embroidery patterns, fabrics etc. can be worn for more of a western look. This trend mixed easy silhouettes with style, and form with functionality.
Colour block bandhgala
The colour-block trend continues to reign runways and high street. Why not include it in your festive attire too? Instead of a plain or embroidered bandhgala, tailor one in contrasting metallic fabric for a colour block effect. It lends a western feel to a desi silhouette. Wear a plain dhoti or dhoti pants beneath, and team with leather shoes.
Formal Indian without a kurti
You can pair your lehenga’s with a formal white button-down shirt or a crop top and accessorize it with junk jewellery.

Mirror Work + Cold-Shoulder
The new trend that is catching up is wearing the cold shoulder style in ethnic clothes. You can combine mirror work and cold shoulder tops to wear a customized outfit for Diwali. The plus point of the outfit is that you can wear this top again as a sari blouse, or pair the skirt with a simple kurta to work.
Lehengas/ Palazzos/Saris with crop tops
A beautiful lehenga’s with a combination of embroidery crop blouse gives a new dimension to your traditional look. Crop top blouses are now in trend and a must-have for any wardrobe.
Capes/Long koti/Jackets with everything
Capes are big in Indian wear this season. From dupatta capes, poncho-style capes, asymmetrical styles, to jacket styled ones, there’s one for every girl. Easy to wear, capes/koti can be embraced by every body type. Opt for a simple kurti and a fancy cape to clad in an uber cool indo-western look. Also, the best part about these jackets is that you can wear them with both western and Indian outfits.
Palazzos and Kurtas
Pair an old kurti with colored palazzos and borrow some earrings to go with it. Or you can also pair it with a crop top and add some golden jewellery to your look.
