How to Wear Indo-Western Suits & Dresses for All Occasions

Indo-western suits are the latest trend in Indian fashion- the sexy blend of western with traditional ethnic-wear. Here’s EXACTLY how and when to wear them.

Hey fashionista! Indo-western is new cool factor in the category of ethnic-wear. This year, we saw Indo-western outfits on the runway collections of all our favorite designers – both at Lakme Fashion Week and Amazon India Fashion Week 2016. Before they hit the wedding and party scenes, we want YOU to know what to select, how to pair them and where to rock these newest ensembles! These outfits can be trendy, sexy or elegant, depending on how you want them to be, without losing the touch of the Indian culture!

The most common suits we saw on the runways included off shoulder tops, tops with jackets paired with loose pants, crop tops paired with dhoti pants. We categorized them based on what occasion you should wear them to!

Indo-Western Suits for Wedding Sangeet

If there is one event we all look forward to during a wedding, it’s the sangeet ceremony! It’s the event where we all wanna look chic by trying the latest runway-trends. Kurta with dhoti pants and palazzos are great options for your BFF’s or cousin’s sangeet party.

Indo-Western Outfits for Engagement Party

Indo-western outfits are perfect for both your own engagement party or when you’re a guest at a glam engagement party. You want an outfit that doesn’t outshine your wedding look, but special enough to make you shine! I’m loving the crop top paired with loose pants and dupatta by Payal Singhal.

Indo-Western Suits for Weddings

If you wanna wear an Indo-western suit to your friend’s, colleague’s or cousin’s wedding, here are some great ideas: one shoulder dresses paired with chooridar, short anarkali paired with Aladdin pants or asymmetric kurtis with palazzos or loose pants.

Indo-Western Outfits for a Mehendi/ Dance Party

Attending a cousin or friend’s mehendi or dance party before their wedding? A crop top or asymmetric top paired with loose pants is a great option. They’re super Instagrammable, so get ready to post a pic with Indian suit salwar captions!  Chic, sexy yet comfortable to dance in!

Indo-Western Outfits for a Cocktail Party

It’s a sundowner, so wear something shimmery that works well when the night falls. Indo-western outfits are the best for cocktail parties. Pick out something that’s not too heavy but yet glam. My favorite options are crop tops under sheer kurtas or suits with sexy cut-outs.

Indo-Western Suits for an Office Party

If it’s just a daytime casual office party- try lighter colors. I’m loving a biscuit-colored kurta with zardozi work paired with palazzo pants by Joy Mitra, and an asymmetric top with single kaftan sleeve by Payal Singhal.
