Indo-Western Lehenga – East Meets West


Hi people,

indo-western outfit

Indo-western dresses really get me. First, I love Indian elements; I think they give a bold definitive style. Second, I love the comfort and ease of my western wardrobe. And since marriages are not getting over anytime soon we all being limited on budget, I thought to put together  an Indo-western Outfit Look Book for you all.

You can check the first outfit I styled using a Long skirt and Anarkali Kurta  HERE.

For this one, I picked two very classic and Body-friendly trends- Peplum and Maxi Skirt.

Peplum is a very versatile/suits all body-type silhouette and I have already done another outfit on Peplum Tops check HERE) and this one has a complete desi twist to it. I have worn an Ivory Peplum top with sheer floral accents and teamed it with a pleated maxi skirt in cyan blue. You don’t have to worry if you don’t have a maxi-skirt you can use any long skirt in place of it and the more the volume it has the better.

If I had stopped here, I had a perfect lunch/evening outfit. That is how Versatile this styling can be.

But I obviously styled it for my friend’s Mehendi and since nothing spells Indian in an outfit like a Dupatta I decided to Color-block my Indo-western Lehenga.with its help. I added a gorgeous parrot green Dupatta from Mum’s closet  covered in silver sequins and compliemtary shimmer border to my ensemble.

And voila! A complete Desi transformation to our western outfit.

Maxi skirt outfit

I played with my accessories to get a bit more rustic and Indian going ahead with silver jewelry this time. My drop earrings had blue detailing on them matching perfectly with the blue of my skirt. I added my favourite silver bangles ( which I got on my last visit to Jaipur)  for my arm- candy.

I choose  a more western heel, with my white wedge pumps, but you can easily replace these with more ethnic Mojaris or Kolhapuri sandals.
