Two Super Fun Indo-Western Fusion looks!

I love creating fusion looks – mixing my Indian pieces with my western clothes to create some stylish indo-western looks, and as tomorrow is Republic day, I thought it would be fun to share these looks with you guys. I hope this gives you some inspiration to show off your ethnic side in an ultra-modern way!

Dupatta Drama

Republic Day fashion - Indian Fusion style - Chai and Lipstick

My first look is an extremely chic look which is great for office wear, a lunch date and why not even an evening apero! I wore my favorite crisp white shirt with gold straight pants from Global Desi .

To give this look the ethnic touch I wore a statement neckpiece and a dupatta that I pleated and tucked in my belt.
