The festive season is around the corner. Dussehra, Diwali, Karva Chauth and all Indian major festivals are knocking our doors and it is also the best time to don the fashionable clothes and swing in style. And it also means a big hole in your pocket after an extensive and expensive shopping. But instead of buying too many clothes to keep up with the latest trend why not reinvent your old wardrobe to give you a glamorous festive look? It is totally possible and I will show you how!
Fashion curious souls should know that indo-fusion replaces the ethnics this season. Opting for a simple sari-blouse, salwar suit or lehenga choli is simply boring.Experimenting with the look in your Puja vacation is call of the season. I experimented with my white croatia high neck blouse and teamed it up with five other dresses including westerns and the outcome was gorgeous. Take a look.
A Bodycon Bandage Dress
Forget the LBD,its all about bandage dresses from Malaika Arora to Disha Patni everybody is adorning colorful sexy bodycon bandage dresses. You can try this look this festive season,when you are bored of ‘ethnic wear over dose‘ or simply going out for a cocktail party.
I used the same high neck white blouse and teamed it up with a golden sequence pencil skirt. The bling kept the festive vibes on and the white blouse balanced the look. I just pulled my skirt a little upward towards my chest and the whole bodycon bandage dress look was good to go.

If you are a naive and sari draping is messy and you are always confused while matching your blouse with the sari than remember one golden rule. ‘Nobody wears a matching blouse with the sari’. Same coloured Saree and blouse are such big fashion mistake these days. Remember we have crossed our ‘mummies generation‘ a long time back. Contrast is the key! White, Golden and Black are three key colors for blouses which complement almost all type of saris though you can have different fabrics for different colors. Sequence,shimmer, Croatia,brocade,satin blouses in different designs look extremely fashionable and accentuate your femininity as well.
White especially is an ethereal colour so I chose it over others and see how beautiful it looks with my royal blue aari work Kashmiri Silk Saree full of Samovar hand embroidery. This colour combination attracts equal attention towards the saree and the blouse both.
Denim on Denim grunge look
Since the retro fashion is back with bang this season, I paired up my high neck blouse with denims. The stilettos made this whole denim on denim look very edgy. Though the sneakers will complement well too. This very simple and functional look is good for Pandal hopping or Puja shopping to sync in well with festive fashion.

Crop Top Lehenga Festive look
This indo-fusion twist is new age lehenga choli. The boho mirrored multi-coloured latkan add very interesting twist to this simple skirt and make it party friendly. The shades and watch enhance the indo western fusion in the most resplendent manner. How about trying this look for your dandiya nights or casino nights than opting for boring ethnics year after year?

Crop Top Pallazo Look
The very feminine pallazos have the same cult status as the pair of jeans in our generation. Pallazos goes best with tank tops, tees and crop tops. When paired up with long kurta it create a classic combination of salwar suit too. I teamed up wide legged pallazos full of famous Punjabi phulkari embroidery with a cowgirl belt,multicolored necklace and handcuff bracelet and huge jhumkas. I emphasized more on accessories for this look to bring on that festive feel. Even the block heeled embellished sandals brought out those blingy festive appeal with the entire crop top pallazo look beautifully. The best thing about this look is that it is stylish yet comfy and extremely functional. So you can run around completing all the festive chores and yet look party ready.
