￼The term INDO-WESTERN FASHION or FUSION FASHION isn't really something that needs an introduction. It is the very essence of every modern woman's wardrobe. But if we were to lay the term out clearly, Indo-western fashion is an amalgamation of Indian and western wear, be it in terms of silhouettes, structures, styling, fabrics or designs. When various different elements of these two spectrums of style sensibilities are fused in( and there are thousands of ways to do that!), what we get is INDO-WESTERN WEAR FOR WOMEN, and men as well. This category of clothing has perhaps the most number of permutations and combinations of not just clothing, but also styling various accessories to give a look that is unique and experimental. Fashion-conscious, free-spirited women between 22-32 years of age embrace fusion wear with aplomb as it can be styled for a wedding or office with equal ease.
The trend of Indo-western clothing picked up steam in the 80s and 90s when women were finally breaking free from the shackles of tradition to embrace their new found freedom to step out and be independent. They ditched traditional salwar kameez, sarees or even the western formals in favor of these fluid fusion wear outfits. This genre of clothing has only gained popularity since then as more and more designers and top fashion houses give it their own contemporary twists. Each year stylish new silhouettes are introduced into the market that don't just win heart, but also give a special sense of confidence to women.
Essentially Indo-western wear consists of clothing such as dhoti pants, crop tops, petal pants, cotton maxis, Indian textile clothes such as tops, tunics, etc made from ethnic Indian materials and prints. You can spot women flaunting Bangaru print blazers over skirts, or Rajasthani mirrorwork tops with denims, silk pants with long coats, juttis with pants, stoles over tank tops, the options are limitless.
