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.
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.
A matte neutral eye with classic winged eyeliner and bold lips kept my make-up sorted . Comment below if you would like a makeup breakdown or TUTORIAL on this look.
The Third outfit in my Indo-western Look-Book will be up on Tuesday where I show you how you can repeat pieces without it ever being a Faux Pas!
