Be it matching separates or contrasting prints and colour combinations, this crop top lehenga is sure to look absolutely stunning on all body types. Skinny lasses can opt for voluminous flared lehengas for a flattering look, while those with a heavy upper body can opt for high-waisted printed lehengas and simple long-sleeved crop tops or slightly longer tops and woo crowds in the ultra feminine crop top lehengas.

In my opinion, one crop top lehenga attire is an absolute must-have for every woman. I, most certainly, am wearing one at my sister’s Sangeet – a stunning mirror appliqué bearing crop top lehenga!

Urban Contemporary, this is a style for those style divas, who wouldn’t mind trying a complete new look at occasions. This is a style that carries a saree over a kurta or kurta instead of a saree blouse. It looks ravishing and also builds that strong fashion image.

Kurti with Vest, traditional Indian vest

This can be a modern style by wearing your denim waistcoat or jackets with your kurta or tunics paired in palazzo or dhoti. Or another way is to wear your Indian vests in embroidery over plain kurtis and paired on patialla or dhoti pants.


Kurti with Palazzo Pants!

You would already know this style as it’s been in trend and have seen so many already trying it on. So why are you waiting to find your complete pair? Go for a kurta from your closet and math up palazzo pants in contrast colours or styles from elephant palazzo to full flared ones.


add a touch of sheer for that ultimate fusion chic look.

Festive fusion would be incomplete without an overdose of bling. Don’t scrimp when it comes to fashion jewellery. Choose modern jewelry pieces to lend fusion flair to your outfits this year. Wear layered necklaces, a chunky statement necklace, or try it out as a trendy maangtika and add an armlet. Stoles and scarfs can also give an ethnic outfit a fusion vibe, as can a bling-y belt cinched at the waist of a saree or kurta. If you can’t think of anything else, carry an Indian potli bag and step out in juttis footwear.
