Indo Western Diwali Dress Ideas

Are ethnic outfits not for you? Are you looking for something modern like fusion wear? We have you covered. Choose from swanky dresses, quirky sarees and embroidered jackets for a fuss-free yet striking Diwali look.

Sarees for Fusion Wear

When we talk about sarees, rarely do we imagine it being styled as a western outfit. The general perception is that it can only be adorned as ethnic wear. However, what if we tell you that it makes for an even better fusion wear?

Yes, there are several ways in which you can don your saree as a fusion outfit. You can go for that effortless fusion look by pairing a wrap-around blouse with a solid saree and topping it off with silver or grey heels.

You can even experiment a little by pairing your solid saree with a printed jacket or blazer for that modern look. Complete the look by donning a sleek up-do hairstyle. The only thing you need to keep in mind is you need to pair a contrasting jacket with your saree.

Rock that sassy look by matching your pastel-hued saree with a crisp denim jacket. Complete the badass look by pulling your hair back in a bun with some ethereal braid details. Talking about boss-woman looks, you can even wear a broad belt to a wrap-around top with a simple saree. Sleek straight hair and smoky eyes are all you need to provide the finishing touches to this look.

Crop tops

One of the chicest and fashionable Diwali dress ideas, you can pair crop tops with multiple apparels to attain the ideal indo-western fusion look. You can match embellished crop tops with either palazzos or dhoti pants for that perfect style statement for the Diwali party.

The embroidered crop top accentuates your midriff while the flowy palazzos add an extra dose of style to your outfit. You can even add a thin-long jacket to your ensemble for that simple yet classy look.

You can even amp up the style quotient of your crop tops by pairing them with a front-knotted shrug and cigarette pants. The only thing to keep in mind is if you are going for a printed shrug, pair it alongside a plain crop top and pants for a subtly stylish look.

Kurtis for Fusion Wear
