I find myself going for smart-casual kurtas, stoles, dupattas, palazzos (my currents love) to dress for any sort of occasion. The new age ethnic wear seamlessly transcends into smart work wear to evening wear. I love anything that has Indianness to it. I can't help but fall in love with paisley pattern every now and then.
Case in point , PIKU. I saw the movie recently and am bowled over by Deepika's look in it. Films have always given us some really fantastic fashion inspirations. The work wear is kept practical and so chic and I love the bindi.
Lifestyle stores brings us this amazing look through Melange. Melange is an exclusive ethnic brand from Lifestyle and they had made the look available in stores. The Piku Lifestyle collection got noticed by various fashion bloggers like me and they created their own Piku Melange inspired looks. I am in line of creating one of my own and will be up on the blog soon.
I am sure by now you would want to go shopping but the rains outside wouldn't allow you and it would have been so nice if similar ethnic fusion wear was available somewhere online. Ofcpurse you can buy Melange Collection through Jabong
But if you are looking for more, here come NAARI. Go check Naari for their amazing kurti, slim pants, palazzos and dupatta collection. These are some of my favourites.
