This one’s probably the easiest and most foolproof way to bring a sizzling touch to your desi ensemble. Ditch the boring, simple backs for an interesting, hot one and flaunt that sexy back with confidence. You can try interesting backs like a cross bodied back, a mesh back, a sheer one or… a bare one!

2. Experiment with silhouettes and styles

Ditch the same old kurta style or that boring way to drape your saree. It’s the 21st century and you’ll be missing out some serious style goals if you don’t experiment with silhouettes, shapes and forms. For kurtas, we suggest you try newer lengths, add volume to your anarkali and wear it sans the pants. If you like a straight fit kurta, stir it up and wear it with dhoti pants, cowl style skirts or even palazzos to feel different. In case of sarees, there’s plenty of room to experiment - be it with the blouse or the way you drape the six yards of cloth.

3. Choose them prints right

Moveover, florals and embroideries, this is the season to be risque and unfollow all your indian wear inhibitions. Defy the already set diktats and embrace the unconventional. When we say choose the right prints, we mean trying animal prints, hazy psychedelic prints, geometry, stripes, and all things OTT. If you want to look sexy and stand out in Indian wear, let break away from cliches and try something fresh!

4. Colour correct

You must try newer and more fancier colours like neons, yellows, fuchsias and blues. Shelve your reds and pinks and go glam girl style with new age and more experimental colours such as pastels, mints, and even bolder colours like olives, rust and navy. When you mix these unexpected, jewel tones together, you’ll look sexy and too haute to care!

5. Getting the right fit

Making sure your garment fits you well is key to looking amazing in your outfit. And by that we mean neither too tight nor too loose. It should hug you at the right places, accentuate your curves and beautify your figure/ assets. So if you are heavy on the bust, wear a neckline that helps give it shape- even without exposing it.

6. Give sheer a try

To add a whiff of sexiness to your outfits, try taking the sheer route. Be it sheer sleeves, sheer back or a sheer neckline with minimal embroidery. It’s a great trend and style to try out because it’s the right mix of sex appeal and comfort. As Indian wear is generally colourful and has a lot of embroidery, the sheer trend is a really effortless way to channel sexy chic!

7. Add some glitter

Because golden makes everything more glam, instantly! Metallic has been a hot trend for the longest time and adding accents of it will instantly glam up anything you wear and ensure all eyes are on you. It’s going to make your ensemble stand out and give it a glittery twist, making it look hot!

8. Fabric matters

There isn’t really a hard and fast rule to follow for this, but you must wear a fabric that suits and flatters your body type. Pick a fabric carefully because it might make you look wider or shorter than you are. Fabrics like cotton silk, tussar silk, etc put on a few kilos to your look and free flowing, lightweight fabrics like crepes, nylons, chiffons and neoprene can actually make you look slimmer and sexier. Stay away from stiff materials too, as they can make you look bulkier than you are.

9. Jewels that make a difference

Want to look different in all your Indian wear? Let go of the kundans, polki and diamond pieces you have and replace them with chic, experimental jewellery that absolutely contrasts with your clothes. A perfect example would be to style jewellery in an unexpected way. Be it wearing a brooch or palm ring or a necklace with a shirt!

10. Putting your best foot forward!

Ladies, you can really oomph up your desi look with a fancy, sophisticated pair of shoes. If you’re opting for heels, wear something that’s contemporary and comfortable as it will give you all the confidence you need to show off your sexy self! If you’re a flats kinda girl, wear interesting footwear like printed juttis, embellished kohlapuris or leather mojaris to stand out!
