Whether it’s an upcoming Diwali party, puja or a wedding function - dressing desi is the best way to go. But this year ‘desi’ isn’t synonymous with the usual Lucknow da kurta and pathani salwar (K3G reference, geddit?) anymore. So why dress up in the same old salwar kameez? Celebrities surely aren’t! Fusion wear is a hot favourite among our Bollywood divas at the moment. So read on and take festive wear inspiration from these celebs who have mastered the art of fusion wear!
The lovely Sonam Kapoor always turns heads with her sartorial choices! This fashionista nails boho chic in this stylish fusion wear ensemble by Anamika Khanna at Cannes 2017! A beautiful pair of high-waisted flared pants and a bralette, with a flowing cape is the perfect Bohemian look for a warm and sunny day at the French riviera! We love the gorgeous earrings and the headband!
