Wedding season means endless occasions and changing from one ethnic outfit into another. But you can break the mould and add a contemporary twist to your wedding outfits by embracing the chic art of fusion. This time, why not stand out in the typical wedding crowd in stylish fusion outfits? Read on to get your fusion fix!
Keep it essentially ethnic
Weddings are largely family occasions which call for traditional ethnicwear. But you can add contemporary vibes to your outfits without losing the ethnic essence. Instead of going for the ubiquitous lehenga-choli, wear a tunic with a pair of dhoti pants and stilettos. Or pair the skirt of an old lehenga with a new floor length ethnic jacket for a head-turning outfit! You get to flaunt tradition, yet stand out in the crowd!
Wear your accessories differently
Not sure about fusion outfits? Your accessories can put a fun spin to your traditional ensemble if you are ready to experiment. Wear a long layered kundan necklace around your waist with an embroidered chiffon saree, or go for spiked hand harnesses, instead of the ethnic haathphool to add a modern twist to your looks. A body harness looks chic with a choli, while a beaded neckpiece can be turned into a headgear to be flaunted with your lehenga.
Experimenting can be fun
If you are bold enough to break the rules, then there’s nothing like some sartorial experiments to create chic fusion looks. You need not have to bear the cool winter air for the sake of wearing your designer choli with that lehenga, grab eyeballs by pairing it with a structured blazer instead, accessorizing with a statement maang-tika! Wear you mother’s heirloom silk saree with a sequinned crop top for a stylish twist to traditional-wear. Try new pairings and fun accessories to turn heads with your fun, fusion looks.
Giving your ethnic finery contemporary twists can be fun, while making you look different from the designerwear-clad crowd. Go slow or flaunt full-on fusion as per your style sensibilities, but whatever you wear, carry it off in style!
