AN INDO-WESTERN DRAPE

November 15, 2016

 

 Hey there,

The wedding bells have started ringing and with all these tempers comes a great duty to get our outfit at the point. Conventionally, we tend to opt for ethnic outfits and that's absolutely convincing, in fact, many of us would altogether go for  only for traditional attires. Of course, even I adore to grace myself in ethnic looks though I may not be seen spotting them so often since I am a tiny girl so they never fit me perfectly, I have to either get them altered or customized. Moreover, I am never satisfied by looking over just a collection from a single stigma, I footrace myself through various shops, labels and brands and this is just so like my routine for the same which is damn hectic. My choosy nature adds on to another trouble here if in case the outfit is ready-made then I might like the colour of one of them and the work of some other piece, but my natural and easy choice would be an ethnic outfit in pastels and embroidery work.

I am very much sure that you girls would relate to one or all of these problems. At such moments Indo-western outfits really come to my saviour. Almost every time I escape such situation by ditching the complete ethnic outfit over the Indo-western ones. Here I will blog about how one can possibly gather their western attire pieces and incorporate them to give a glimpse of traditional looks.  

I feel styling an Indo-western look is so effortless and subtle. Right from sarees to lehengas have been re-styled to give an Indo-western touch. 

 

 


For my this blog, I went little naive and chose to wear pair palazzo with a front mid slit top. Definitely this whole ensemble has hit the recent trends dreadfully and without any doubt this has become on the go on the toe deck for everyone.
The dark and the light tint on the top and palazzo respectively adds the required vibrancy and liveliness to the whole array.

 

 

 

What's unusual is my approach to drape the Dupatta around the wear. For a fact Dupattas may appear to be common or even before us in the matter of styling an outfit, but it's quiet atypical when the whole concern is about drapping them. 

 

 

 

 

 

I have used the finest quality cotton fabric dupatta which is as long as the length of a regular saree. I had bought it long back from a local store in my neighbourhood. 

For the drapping, I have press folded the dupatta neatly pulling it over the right shoulder and keeping the front part, 75% shorter in length than the back length, I have turned it around my left arm making a v fold on my back so as to keep the drape groovy. Then, I have crossed the draped besides my neck just right above the first layer on my right shoulder. Lastly, I have pinned and tucked in the front loose part under the slit of my top that coincides with opposite side of my first layer of drape. 

Phew, finally done explaining the 'Dupatta'part :P. Well, this could be much  easier over a video unfortunately I couldn't get one. 

 

 

 

Further, I thought to complement the outfit with white stilettos. I feel they look absolutely edgy. I have kept the jewellery styling, light by just matching those stunning pair of blue and white stone earring with a bohemian metallic belt. As to preserve the look of drape I went bare neck.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Indo-western outfits are so comfortable and easy to carry. They are as equivalent as those easy breezy outfits and at the same time look ravishing. 

 

 

 

 


So girls, get playful and quirky by reflecting those tremendous senses to style an Indo-western attire. Good Luck..!
