In the ever-transitional world of fashion, choosing a singular style is going to get quite boring, real quick. You need a little experiment to jazz things up sometimes. With this need for innovation and fusion, the ever trending Indo-Western style was born. As ethnic groups like kurtas meet western clothing such as comfy pants somewhere in the centre, what you're left with is a look guaranteed to turn a few heads. 

Indo-Western haute couture has to be one of the most stylish ensembles to flaunt out there, one that doesn't have to feel as complex to build as you may have been led to believe.

The most enjoyable aspect of Indo-Western or ethnic fusion designs is the kind of subjective style and imagination involved in putting together an outfit. There's plenty of room for creativity, and you can try a few things before you settle in on a combination that works best for you. While you're exploring your Indo-Western call, we've listed the top four style statements to rock your ensemble.

Look 1: Go Earthy In Style


This minimally chic long straight designer kurta with full-buttoned front and dainty flower pattern is everything you need to pull off a neat and sophisticated look. You can pair this classy ensemble with a contrasting ankle-length pant and signature kohlapuri or embellished juttis to amp-up your style quotient.

If you feel that your haute couture looks too plain, pop it up with some edgy Indian jewellery. Since the Kurta has a mandarin collar, neckpieces can be given a skip, but you can compensate that with Polki earring or some bold ear pieces to accentuate this fusion outfit.

Look 2: Playing with the patterns

Playing with the patterns

This classic stripy Kurta with a contrasting bottom makes a distinct style statement on the ethnic front while emphasising your frame with A-line outline and all-over fabric design. Distinct mandarin neck imparts subtle fusion effect giving an elegant and polished appeal making the entire outfit stand out.

You can pair it with comfortable cotton pants and designer flats to present a minimalistic yet charming look. Pulled-back hairdo and deep kohl eyes are all that you need to turn the attention onto yourself— Now, that's what we call a truly effortless styling!

Look 3: Make Everyone Go Green With Envy

Make Everyone Go Green With Envy

This elegant sage green Kurta with a self-pattern and a statement folded neckline with piping work is quite a rage on the fashion scene with many celebrities and socialites seen flaunting the haute couture in many public gatherings. 

Much like a myriad of fashion trends, bringing contrasting colours together in an Indo-Western look would make you stand out— almost instantly. Two contrasting shades in your ethnic top and western bottom choices can look very sophisticated and stylish when done right.

Pairing this fusion ensemble with a contrasting ankle or full-lengthed co-ods emphasises the body frame, imparting a universal and refined look.

And, you don't have to constrain yourself to contrast colours just in the case of your clothing. You may also opt to apply it to your jewellery choices; for instance, including a colourful beaded choker to the outfit.

Look 4: Carrying Grace All The Way

Carrying Grace All The Way

There is something about the mellowed tones of fabrics which make them carry the element of elegance and grace effortlessly with aplomb. 

This pearly peach bodice-fit straight fusion kurta with delicate embroidery work in the front and on the arms perfectly harmonises with contrasting co-ods, making your everyday wear unique and comfortable.Soft shade and simplistic design impart a neat and graceful look.

The greatest thing about the Indo-western outfits is that they can be quickly toned up or down depending on the occasion. Indeed, not just fashion aficionados, theseoutfits are taking over the wardrobes of everyone out there and slowly replacing the exclusively traditional or western wear. As claimed by many fashion pundits, fusion is the fad that isn't going away anytime soon!
