Fusion wear is always a great idea for some unique style. It can be a simple saree paired with a shirt, distressed jeans paired with a really sequinned top, or just two modern, interesting silhouettes together. Contemporary meets traditional, and modern meets old-world charm. These few differences can make the world of a difference to your ensemble. Here are a few celeb inspired Indo western outfits for you to take a cue and mix-match the right way!
1. Saree Swag!

2. Straight Fit Pants!

Swara Bhaskar wore this asymmetrical top and instead of pairing it with something too Indian, she chose to wear it with straight fit cigarette pants. She kept her earrings long, dangling and very Indian in the ethos. The bun too, adds a great overall twist to the outfit.
3. Jewel It Up!

Freida Pinto is definitely the Queen of sass when it comes to western dressing, but this white jumpsuit with delicate silver aari work is Indian in thought and feel. And with that pearly white blazer, she just took the ensemble to another level altogether. We’re completely crushing on it!
10. Mixing Silhouettes

Such a pretty combo of bohemian meets traditional Indian motifs. This outfit is a total winner! The top is casual and anti fit, unlike the typical choli. We’re loving the minimal makeup, a side swept pony with just the addition of a maang tikka for some bling and the fact that she went sans dupatta to nail the fusion theme. This look is brave yet breezy!
