Wild In Green

It’s all about the greens, cut-outs and head-scarfs. The wildness captured in the background brings the shades of green into focus. Pairing a maxi with different accessories gives unique looks every time.

Head scarf and long shrug are my weapons for this look-book apart from the usual maxi look.The contrast color of the head scarf gave a bohemian vibe while the shrug seemed to add a semi-formal touch to the outfit.Each of these accessories accentuated the look of the maxi.As you know, when I try western wear,I prefer statement jewellery. In this case, I picked statement earrings and kept it simple with no neck-piece.

Here goes the look !! Hope you enjoy it 🙂

Modern Indian Woman- #Look103

Hey folks, I am back with another new post as a part of the Modern Indian Woman series.I can say that this look is more skewed towards ethnicity rather than Indo-western fusion.


To everyone who wants to start trying Indian ethnic wear, I strongly recommend owning certain wardrobe staples- a plain black kurti and a plain white kurti , solid black and solid white colored leggings, and a beautiful dupatta. With these staples, you can easily flaunt two gorgeous ethnic looks.

For this post, I choose a black kurti along with black leggings and added a pop of color with a beautiful handmade dupatta. If you have been following my blog, then you must have noticed this dupatta in my Kolkata shopping experience post.Beautifully crafted by local tribals, this dupatta depicts kantha work on a thappa (combination of different pieces of clothes).I accentuated the look with afghani earrings, a hand-bag prepared by Rann of Kutch artisans and kolhapuris.

Here goes the look 🙂

Modern Indian Woman- #Look 102

In continuation to my Modern Indian Woman series for this month, it’s time to talk about the second look. This look is going to be about how you could use your modern tops or crop-tops over ethnic bottoms to give an Indo-western/fusion look.


This look helps in bringing out the boldness of a Indian Woman along with the creative aspect. Maroon shade of the crochet top, being one of the main Indian ethnic colors accentuated the look.The tassel earrings and thread jewellery are this season must-haves and I could completely count on these to complete the look with a bohemian vibe.I have used one of the coral chains which I purchased in Andaman as a bracelet.

Without further delay, let me just show you the final look 🙂

The Fusion Game

Yes!! You got it right!! It’s about Indian fusion style that I am going to talk about.This trend seems to grab my attention now.

Ditch the total modern or total Indian ethnic outfits , start mixing both the styles to create a fusion which,I promise, is definitely going to stand out.

I have recently tried this and added a tinge of boho style to enhance the fusion look.You got the game right if you can just carry it the right way.I believe accessories played a major role to accentuate my look.

I primarily focused on a simple plain outfit by pairing a casual tee with a boho-styled skirt.The tee brings in the modern look and the skirt which is slightly pleated gives an Indian ethnic feel.Playing with the colors becomes more reliable in this style as long as you are confident of carrying it.I have picked mustard and black colors since I have never tried this combination. I have used a statement neck-piece and a hand cuff  to add to the boho-style of the skirt.Major focus being the neck-piece, I tried to keep it simple with the earrings,just wore a couple of small metal second earrings. Knotty hairstyle felt perfect for this outfit. 

If you want to try this look, few things to note :

  • When you pair your ethnic printed bottoms with casual plain tees, you can invest in a statement neck-piece
  • If you are going for a printed-printed combination , stay minimal with regards to accessories
  • Also, if you are going for a graphic tee, heavy neck pieces would look clumsy , so stick with sleek long chains.

I guess that is enough download about Indian fusion.Just remember whatever you wear,carry it with confidence, it would just work wonders 🙂
