As the festival season is approaching, update your wardrobe with fusion wear and look different. Invest in a boho jumpsuit, white sneakers, semi ethnic accessories , say experts.

Shailja Mittal, Creative Head at Zapyle (an online marketplace for premium fashion) and Vidit Sehgal, Co-Founder at Lurap (an online platform which makes extra large clothing), have suggested few fusion looks that could be tried:

From boho to ethnic: It’s important to strike the right balance between the East and the West. Try a Boho jumpsuit with nicely coordinated ethnic accessories. Play up with your shoes for more detail. Throw on your white sneakers or a pair of silver metallic Kohlapuris.

Crop top and dhoti look: Pairing a designer Gujarati cold shouldered crop top with a plain bold coloured dhoti looks elegant and classy. Carry it with a stylish pair of jhumkas and matte lipstick which will absolutely complete your look.

The cool tones: Indian prints and fabric are more glamorous than they are perceived to be. An Indian indigo print top paired with white distressed jeans, metallic choker and sneakers would be a good example.

Tradition with a twist: Talking about fusion/Indo-western, rev-up your cotton kurtas by giving it a fusion twist. Pair up an undyed cotton kurta with a flared Yellow midi skirt, throw on a pair of sneakers or high-tops, pull up a backpack. Finish the look with some chunky metallic bangles.

Floral and mute colours: Instead of shimmery and glitters, wear muted colour prints either on a bold colour base or just some added embellishment on the floral.

Layering: Layered organza tops in print outer layer and sequin under layers is the stress free combination, whether you’re wearing a high waist trouser, a full volume skirt or a typical lehenga or maybe even a sari.

Pathani suit and Kohlapuri: There are also various options available for men, you can stick to classic kurta pyajamas and pathani suits and team them with ethnic footwear or go experimental with modern times.
