'A little bit of this, and a little bit of that'
The modern Indian woman is liberal, independent, and free to experiment. She loves to express herself in every way possible. In terms of speech, actions and even dressing up. She wants it all. Her head reaching for the skies without letting go of her roots that hold her strong to the ground.
Dressing up has become probably one of the strongest expression for women today. They wear their mind. Experimenting with cuts, drapes, silhouettes forms and different styles comes easy to her. And the markets are spoiling her for choice. Mixing and matching is definitely on her TO DO LIST if she's already not acing it.
Fashion innovates, renovates and recycles. Every new season brings with itself new trends and innovations that we all embrace. The concept of INDO WESTERN has been a fashion norm for a real long time now. We all love the EAST MEETS WEST philosophy in our clothing as it definitely makes for a more trendy and comfortable style statement.
Practical chic is essentially how I would define this trend. Gowns become Anarkalis, tunics become Kurtis, capes, jackets, crop tops everything that is originally a Western wear concept has been Indianised. Sometimes it makes for the most attractive style statements.
The prints are also undergoing a similar switch. Paisley print or bootas are becoming a regular feature on dresses, shirts and Jackets.
Sarees , suits and tunics are made out of fabrics with checks, cartoon prints and other digital impressions. It's a utterly chaotic yet fashionable step forward. A beautiful harmony of two different cultures and concepts.
