Dressing up is an art and you don't really have to dress up only if you are going to a wedding or if you are famous! How many times did you wish you dressed or looked like some one you saw on social media? I know it's only meant for inspiration, but we already have it in our country! Our diverse cultures have so much vibrance, handwork, art in their traditional attires. We are in fact blessed to be able to incorporate them in our daily lives! And that's what I want to show you through this article! Maybe you already know these styles, or maybe you have forgotten about them altogether!

You are meant to learn what you like by understanding your own style, without being bothered by what the world wants to see! And, by this I also mean, let's not judge anyone, and think how 'desi' they are, instead flaunt these styles when you go on your next trip. Desi fashion is a head turner way of dressing up without compromising on comfort and style! Everything about indo-western fashion speaks, confidence, style character and colours! Whats there in a bland nude coloured outfit that a bright red colour has? Personality!

Nine Outfits that Prove Indo-Western Styles Are Unique!

1. Anarkali - Wear it as a long dress

Anarkali is such a classic 'desi version of full length gown.' A comfortable option which you can wear in the evenings at a romantic dinner or on a hot summer day. Bear in mind to go for soft cotton anarkalis if you go to a humid destination. Dress it up with your chunky jewellery and a head band to give it a boho chic look! Trust me you will feel like a million dollar without sweating in your jeans!

2. Knee length Kurta - As a Short Dress

Short Kurta without a slit can be passed as a short dress so easily! And even if it has a slit, you can wear denim shorts underneath. Wear a belt around the smallest part of your waist, and convert it into a colourful dress!

3. Pallazo pants and crop top - Comfort First

Pallazo pants have been around for a while, but this new twist wasn't. Wear a high waisted palazzo pant to give an illusion of smaller waist, with a crop top. You can always wear a long cover up or a crop jacket if you are in a cooler place.

4. The Classic White Kurta and Jeans

This style screams comfort and style! A chikankari white Kurti with blue denims and kajal is an absolute rock look! Who says you need to wear all black to look edgy? Whether you are exploring a new place or just chilling, this is comfort and style all day long!

5. Rajasthani Skirt with Crop top

I remember buying Rajasthani skirts in Jaipur and never wearing them! Until I realised I can actually wear them with a crop top or a basic t-shirt and give it a twist! The unique print and its wrap-around style makes it so special, and you can easily wear it while travelling too!

6. Separates Desi Style

A matching cotton or silk set looks classy, yet screams comfort! You can either opt for a skirt and top option or pants and a crop top - neither can go wrong! Get it stitched from your trusty seamstress for that perfect cut and fit!

7. Kurta and Chinos

Yes, guys can flaunt the hand blocked shirts at the beach too! The linen shirts look so unique especially when you are on a vacation. Ditch your t-shirts for this unique look and stand out!

8. Statement Pieces!

The classic jewellery goes a long way when it comes to making a statement! Using your oxidised pieces on anything and you will look like a diva!

9. Desi sandals with your Western clothes

Kolhapuris, juttis, mojadis, and any kind of traditional footwear is so unique to India! The best part is they are handcrafted and each pair has its own charm. I personally love my kolhapuris, they are sturdy and can be paired with any outfit!
