Being stylish is synonymous with being confident. It’s all about the comfort and certainty with which one carries different attires, be it Indian, western or indo western fusion. Being stylish also suggests wearing appropriate apparels while considering the occasion, crowd, colors, fabrics, and the seasons. Wearing an absolutely trendy attire at an inapt event can completely ruin the look and can even backfire. To avoid such situations, follow the below mentioned ideas to get a stylish look with Indian fusion wear while also ensuring a filtered trendy wardrobe.
The Wearable Options: Today’s fashion pages are filled with abundant selections for every body type, occasion, budget and disposition. The blend of Indian with western fashion elements have crafted the most amazing fusion wear that keeps the traditional wear alive while satiates the modern mindsets. Gorgeous Anarkalis teamed with palazzos have become an all time favorite as it gives a very frail and regal look while ensuring utmost comfort and style. Long patterned kurtis with side, front and twin slits can be aptly teamed up with palazzo or straight fitted pants to create a contemporary look.

Tunics have synced well with today’s dynamic women as they are comfortable in varied designs and patterns and are available in routine as well as in party wear segment. Tunic tops can be easily coordinated with palazzo or narrow fit pants and can be embellished with a smart stole or a jacket. New age traditional wear also include crop tops with flared skirts, shift and maxi dresses, patterned blouses and kurtis that redefine the ethnic segment
The Threads Matter: With changing seasons, the fabric trends also vary. In summers, one must opt for skin affable textiles for maximum ease, like Cotton, Rayon and Linen. These are light; sweat absorbing, anti-rash and softer in texture. Monsoons bring extra humidity and dampness causing skin irritation and clinginess. This season friendly fabrics are Silk-Cotton, Mul, Chiffon, Crepes, and Georgettes as they quickly dry and are easy to maintain. Winter time offers a variety of fabrics that are wearable, like rich Silks, Cashmere, Corduroy, Fleece, Raw Silk, and Wool. For a stylish look round the year, research and understand fabric types and their pros and cons. A good fabric material can make or break your look, choose wisely!The Body Measurements: Any clothing looks tasteful when it is suitable to the wearer and their body type. Whether one is frail or on the plump side, attires that look even and relaxed make the difference. Wearing revealing outfits yet constantly fidgeting looks appalling. Too covered and closed outfits with minimal breathability also look unfit and bad in taste. Clothes should be well fitted that means neither to baggy nor too stretched. The fall should be graceful, and should uphold your stature rather than giving every dimensional detail. When deciding on clothing, ensure that it boosts your confidence, gives cheerful vibes, and makes you look elegant.

The Trending Patterns: This year, fusion wear can be seen teamed with a lot of sheer layered and poncho shrugs, asymmetrical hemlines, wool pompoms, tassels and belts. In prints, Shibori, Floral, Digital, Chevron, Damask, Tie and Die, Block, Mandala, Motifs, Geometrical and Paisley are all in rage. The works of Zardosi, Embroidery, Kasab, Filigree, Handwork, Mukaish, Gota Patti, Badla and Chikankari have captured the market in beautifully handcrafted prêt and couture. For a chic and complete look, pick complementing clutches, jewellery, hair accessories and footwear that add a vibrant touch and make you look stunning.

The Avoidable: A subtle and balanced look is anytime graceful than going over the board. Many products and accessories trend and are available in the market. Don’t wear everything and become a walking store. Choose selective pieces that suit your face and attire and give them space to stand out. Mixing too many ornaments with cakes of makeup will lower your natural beauty. Be innovative, original and yourself!
Take pleasure in dressing who you are and aspire to show your happy face. Beauty resides in originality, so be your own kind of beautiful and stylish, of course!
