From a very tender age, we are taught not to differentiate amongst us, and yet we end up differentiating among clothes based on their origins. The saree, originating in India, becomes a symbol of elegance, wherein a skirt, originating from Western parts of the world is not? "I strongly believe that all styles of attire must be appreciated simply as a portrayal of beauty of their own origin," says designer Nidhi Mehra. The best way of appreciating beauty is to mix up styles, you know, just to spice things up a notch. Here's a list of just a few of the possibilities that are pre-dominant in the fashion market of today. The looks are quite simple to try on and do their fair share to help you look stunning.
Crop top blouse with a saree: Crop Top Blouses are gaining popularity in India, similar to a wild fire these days, even with its western origin; one can very well be paired with an Indian Saree for an elegant yet chic look. The basic requirements: A crop top with length equal to a blouse and a saree. The imperfect look of the top donned with a saree is what brings out a different and unique look.
Ethnic kurta with summery shorts: We have always associated shorts with tank or baggy tops. Well, surprise, a good pair looks equally good with a set of ethnic kurta. We recommend you try pairing one of your best kurtas with a pair of swanky denim shorts and the world turns into your ramp.
Indian traditional jewellery with western dress: Here's a trend that has recently been doing rounds at various celebrity occasions. An elegant western dress becomes much appreciated when combined with a traditional and antique neckpiece. Traditional accessories go so well with western clothing that even a deep necked top gets easily complemented when accompanied with traditional jewellery. This is the perfect way to blend confidence and elegance with pride.
