Fusion wear comes naturally to me.
Why you ask?
Well, growing up me and my brother could only buy two pairs of clothing a year and we always picked casual fun looking clothes and wore the same to every outing and party. I did feel out of place when I’d go to a wedding and all the other girls I knew wore the most extravagant lehengas and shararas and I stood there like a fool in acid washed pants.
Growing up too I never went for Indian wear because I loved wearing my funky sweatshirts more. A few pieces that mum bought were enough and I would wear them differently each time and that went fine.
Of course as a grown up adult of 23 years (who hates to acknowledge the fact!), I do know the importance of dressing according to the occasion. All the bling blings now make sense to me and I yearn for the fanciest lehenga I see.
But again, you can’t keep buying new things every time and so the styling and fusion plays an important role. I love fusing Indian pieces with western and create something out of the box. I have previously done a quite a few on the blog. You may want to check them out first.
This time I went for a more sleek, classy look all thanks to this beautiful pearl-laded sharara by Dimple and Amrin. The label in itself is an example of fusion wear as they believe in hanging on to the country’s heritage and still looking for inspiration from the global culture. The luxury label does all of that with utmost ease. The sharara I am wearing here is just a glimpse of the extravagance they create. The best part is you can invest in pieces like these and wear them a couple of times, styled differently and they would create the same kind of magic, every single time.
I teamed it up with a typical bodysuit in black. What else could be more western than that? Going further I took a dupatta in blue to add a pop of colour to the outfit. Then building the look further I went on with some Indian jewelry in silver. I am actually wearing a maang tika as my choker necklace. Talk about fusion and styling huh! Since I was going for a more classy and contemporary look, I went ahead with a sleek mid parting for my hair. For shoes, my black and white block heels seemed to be the best choice.
This was it ladies. I hope you enjoyed this look as much as I did coming up with it. Let me know your views in the comments below!
