The Perfect Marriage

While traditional outfits have their own appeal, looking for that one piece that truly sets us apart can be a task. Look beyond your stereotypical Indian wear – pairing your sari with a shirt or wearing a crop top with your favourite sharara. Marrying Indian silhouettes with contemporary styles might just be what your festive wardrobe was missing all along - taking your favourites beyond their predictable wears.

To help you put together unique looks that truly speak your aesthetic, we bring you outfit inspirations from the best. Scroll below for our favourite looks and take your pick.

Co-ordinated blouse? We think not.

Ditch the predictable matching blouse for your lehenga. Tanya Ghavri shows us how you can never go wrong with a black top. It makes all the difference yet sets you apart. Pair it up with neutral accessories via Saint Laurent and add some shine with heels from Simkhai or Saint Laurent.

Sari’s pairings go beyond

When looking for fashion inspiration, all eyes are on Sonam Kapoor and rightfully so. Play around with your blouse choices for a vintage sari passed down to you. A fresh new look awaits from a selection of tops via Three Graces London and Dries Van Noten or just a bold with a bodysuit from Alex Perry.

You can always rely on classic white

Diya Mehta shows us that a classic white shirt can do it all. Give your colourful lehenga lying at the back of your closet new life. A dramatic white blouse from Zimmermann or Rosie Assoulin is sure to add some freshness to your look.
