With the onset of summers, everyone would love wearing cotton clothes. And if you love wearing breathable pieces, you might have a thing for pure cotton Indian clothes like cotton skirts, kurtas, dupattas, palazzos, etc.
Currently, pairing up an Indian clothing piece with a western top/bottom or indo-western style is trending. There are numerous unusual ideas to put together two different pieces and appear fresh and unique, which are mentioned below.
Add A Touch Of Denim
Tired of wearing t-shirts and tops with your favourite jeans? Try it out with your kurta. To make your look completely different, try wearing a kurta with rugged jeans or boyfriend denim. This look would not only be breezy and comfortable but also look chic and stunning.
You can also add patches of your old block print kurta or dupatta to your denim. You may even sew Indian lace patterns at the hem of your denim for an indo-western appeal. Similarly, you can wear a short denim jacket over your cotton block-print dresses/kurtis for a stylish look.
Use Dupatta As Shrug
You can either sew your dupatta into a shrug or use some safety pins and folding techniques to transform it into a shrug. The easiest way to use a dupatta as a shrug without damaging it involves knotting two corners of shorter sides and then wear it like a normal shrug. You can use safety pins or brooches for the same if you do not want knots to show. The only thing to remember is your dupatta should be flowy and not stiff.
Pairing Skirts/Lehengas With T-shirts/Shirts
You might have an old cotton skirt or lehenga lying around in your wardrobe. To create an indo-western look out of it, try wearing it with a white/black/denim shirt. You can even wear a plain tshirt. Just tuck your top in the skirt/lehenga, pair some traditional jewellery like bangles, oxidized earrings, rings, a necklace with it and you are ready to go. This would definitely create an instagrammable look.
Add Kolhapuri Chappals/Jutis And Cotton Bag
The easiest way to transform any western outfit into an indo-western one is by wearing jutis or Kolhapuri chappals with it. If your traditional footwear has colourful pompoms, your entire look would appear even more Indianized. Another tip is to add a jhola (colourful cotton bag) or block print clutches/slings to for a desi look.
Put On Accessories
If you are wearing your everyday clothes and want your look to be interesting, wearing a pair of jhumkas and adding some artificial rings would do. If you have cotton tops, short kurtas, or crop tops and pair them up with a necklace that could go on different occasions, you would create a stunning indo-western look. You can also wear a metallic belt on your Anarkali or kurta to make it look contemporary and fresh.
The above-mentioned are a few tips to transform your everyday clothes into funky indo-western outfits. Put on a bindi or braid your hair into different styles to finish the look and have fun trying new styles and create new indo western fashion ideas.
