If you are a regular follower of Chamber of Beauty, especially my outfit posts, you would be fully aware of the fact that I love ethnic wear. I may have confessed this a couple of times earlier as well, Indian ethnic wear appeals to me more than western wear. It is always a great thing, staying close to your culture, your roots. Exploring the outside world, expanding your horizons is very important but that doesn’t mean you should stray away from your traditions. It’s our culture, our heritage that defines us, they are what help us in standing out in the crowd.
The contemporary times have allowed us to exercise freedom when it comes to traditions. Trends, rules are no longer as rigid as they used to be. This elasticity has allowed us to mould certain things according to our taste and liking. We can mix and match various trends, freely play around with silhouettes and designs. The best part is that everything is so wearable and looks pretty.
A combination of diverse Indian embroidery, prints and western silhouettes has given birth to a new form of modern ethnic wear- Fusion wear. With an Indian look yet an international appeal, these Indian fusion wear have taken the ethnic market by storm. From tops, ethnic dresses to aesthetic drapes, they are all over the markets and online. Unique hemlines, all kinds of bottom wear like pants, palazzo, skirts are in vogue. Talking about hemlines, I’ve been loving the asymmetric ones, those that are shorter in the front and longer at the back. They look really elegant and beautiful. I recently bought this printed asymmetric kurta from Biba which is a part of their Tribal Roots collection.
“Inspired by tribal florals of Africa, a new language has been created with a brand new fusion look”
The color combination of red and white with green piping and the gorgeous floral print made me fall in love with this kurti as soon as I spotted it. The material is perfect for summers, very breezy and breathable. I styled it with a pair of red pants and black heels. The kurta is quite unique with such prominent difference in the hemline length on both sides but then that’s what modern ethnic wear is about, isn’t it?
