How to create the Perfect Fusion Looks for every occasion

09 August, 2018

Hello lovely ladies,

Sunshine is back again with the blissful mix of a cool breeze. As I sat to put down my thoughts, I could feel the wind swaying notoriously and messing up my hair. What an ecstatic morning it is today! Though I strictly belong to the nocturnal community, I still sometimes wake up early in the morning to jot down my abstractions in isolation. Mornings are so pristine and heavenly some days that I forget all the discomfort or stress and get able to fill up more light in my life. Sitting down at the corner of my room whilst drinking my morning coffee, I was thinking how half of the year has passed by in a blink. It feels like yesterday when I started my blog and wrote down my very first blog post. I was going through my chronicles of how this year has been so far me and it was literally euphoric. Every single thing I worked on, howsoever small it is, I felt a sense of pride and happiness beyond words. While these extremely gleeful moments crossed my mind, I discerned one particular thing. So far this year, I have donned ethnic fusion looks most of the time.

This is the year when I have been fusing our traditional wear with western attire mostly. If you follow me on Instagram, then you would have seen a plethora of such fusion looks. I received so many wonderful comments and feedback from you all, that I want to go ahead with more such looks. This time I had an Indo-Western take on a block printed long kurti and another one with Palazzo pants from Akash Arts. These two looks are effortlessly elegant and make you ready for your next casual day outing.

The Frida Twist


Everyone knows my love for anything that is Art. In my spare time (which is probably the rarest of rare) I love to get my hands on my brushes and paint my heart out. Even after a continuous rebuke from my mother for painting my clothes more than the canvas, I continued to explore more and paint my emotions on to the canvas. My mother has now made peace with it and she also goes with “Daag Acche Hain”. Painting is a stress buster for me, and as soon as I lift my brush all my agonies fade away. As a child and even now, I am fond of many artists and one of them is the legendary Frida Kahlo. She has inspired me a lot, not just by her self-portraits but with her unique and impeccable fashion sense. Her work talks of her pain and passion, is bold and vibrant and every bit of it makes us remember as a feminist icon. Her statement floral headband with unibrows is what I admired most. And I thought of embracing Frida Kahlo vibes in my fusion look.

For this look, I got a block printed long cotton kurti with flared sleeves from Akash Arts. The block print has a very unique and intricate design and the flared sleeves add more essence to the charm. Moreover, the vibrant and bold color of the kurti along with the floral block print adds the much needed artistic ethos in the look. As I had always said, accessories are your best friend. A simple casual look can be accentuated to match a celebrity style by using the right accessories. For the love of Spongebob, accessorize it, girl! Here, I have gone ahead with golden hoop earrings and a jute sling bag. The bag and the earrings complimented my entire look. For footwear, I chose subtle brown colored slippers so that it can blend in completely with the color of the kurti. Finally, I completed the look with Frida Kahlo’s iconic fashion statement, i.e. a headband of the same color as the kurti. Frida Kahlo used to adorn her hair with flowers but I choose to go with a minimal headband to make it more wearable.

Palazzo Pants 101


The next look is all about unveiling the Palazzo Pants 101. It occurred to me that whenever we talk about palazzo pants having an ethnic essence to it, we tend to pair it up with kurtis or ethnic long jackets. For me, it is a different story. Try saying me, “this outfit shall be worn like this” and I will show you tons of other ways to style it up. Palazzo Pants are one of the most versatile pieces and can be styled in countless ways. But today, I will be showing you the easiest and most wearable one. This look is again has a fusion element and I have teamed up the western elements of the outfit with ethnic and traditional accessories. Starting with the look, I took off-white palazzo pants from Akash Arts and teamed it up with a pretty floral top. The floral top infuses the perfect pop of colors to the look and makes it look more lively. Once again, I put some extra efforts to accessorize and clubbed my look with ethnic accessories. I chose golden earrings having delicate and intricate traditional designs with pearls and an off-white with golden traditional embroidery clutch to give the much needed pristine finesse to the look. For footwear, I chose lace-up wedges with an embroidered strap to maintain the balance between the western and ethnic elements of the look. As far as my makeup and hair are considered, I kept my makeup minimal and created a low ponytail with side braids.

    I love your use of bold colors!! And palooza pants are my absolute go to for summer. I live in shorts if it’s above 75° but if I need to wear pants - palooza are the only thing I will wear. I love how dressy they look but still feel like pajamas!! ;)

    I love the palooza pants. I only love how it looks on others though. I've never allowed myself to try it on (even though my sister can make as many as I would want for me) because i have tgis default thinking it wont look good on me. A suggestion; can you make your posts more readable by breaking down long paragraphs into short skimmable ones? This will really help your readers stay longer rather than run off because of the long text...
