Karisma Kapoor Pushing Indian Fashion Boundaries

Let’s be honest, 90% of the times, Indian fusion clothes just don’t work. When it comes to Indian clothes, classic is often the route to go, in terms of silhouettes especially.

But Karisma Kapoor is an exception. She has given us several Indian looks which are unusual silhouettes and she carries them off super well.

We’re bringing you a few of these looks.

We start with one of the most recent look. A peplum style inspired kurta with patiala salwar. On most people, this look would have been a little too weird, but Karisma Kapoor really works this outfit.

Also, it was a smart move by the designer to keep the colours more neutral rather than using bright colours that we often associate with Indian fashion. It helps balance the outfit.

At another promotional event, the actress went with a patiala suit again, but this time with a slightly different silhouette for the salwaar with a high low kurta. The look is so well put together, especially with the top bun!

The next look is one that’s super hard to pull off, but the Kapoor lady looks super chic!

Karisma didn’t overlook the good ol’ anarkali either. Here she wears a classic floor length anarkali but mixes things up by adding a long, embroidered jacket.

When it comes to saree silhouettes, it was two looks that really stood out for us! The first one below is what she wore at Anamika Khanna’s recent show.

And the second one was more of a lehenga saree, but she kept things interesting with an unusual drape which would have looked sloppy on most people, but obviously not her!

Here’s a major lesson we learnt: When it comes to down unusual silhouettes or styles while wearing Indian outfits, styling is really, really important and that’s what really takes each of these looks a notch higher!

Deepika Padukone In Floral Sabyasachi Sarees For Piku Promotions

Deepika Padukone gave us two sightings of floral Sabyasachi sarees during ‘Piku’ promotions – both quite different from one another. While one had a more elegant feel to it, the other had a more happy and relaxed feel to it. We liked both!

Vidya Balan In Super Chic Sarees At Indian Film Festival Of Melbourne 2015

Vidya Balan usually sticks to sarees on the more traditional side. But this time,we’re really impressed. She chose minimalist sarees and kept things simple.

We especially love the colour combination in the saree below.

Vidya did wear a saree that was tilted slightly towards the traditional side, but simplicity was a key here too and we loved it! Also, how perfect is this look for mother of the bride?

Pick Up The Prints

With summer almost here, most of the regular Indian wear takes a back seat. It’s almost impossible to wear those outfits with heavy fabrics and extensive embroideries during the season.

But when a big occasion comes around, you still need to step it up, and that is when prints come to the rescue. They take your look up a notch, whilst still keeping the whole outfit light and summer manage-able.

We bring you a few printed outfits we adore!

Spotted – A Gorgeous Pink-Red Saree

We came across this beautiful saree from Ochre Sky and instantly fell in love with it. Usually, it’s very hard to pull off a pink and red combo, but it’s done so well here!

So pretty! Also, notice how it’s a full sleeved blouse? Perfect saree for the winter wedding season!

Interesting Abdul Halder Sarees – LFW S/R 2014

At the Lakme Fashion Week, Summer-Resort 2014, there were two sarees that really caught our eye from the Abdul Halder collection. They’re similar, and in two different colours. And definitely not your regular sarees.

Wouldn’t it be so perfect for an morning / afternoon function? Like an afternoon wedding of your best friend? Or your own morning roka? The white pallu over the bold colour looks really nice and softens the whole look instantly. Pretty!

Looking pretty, Sophie gives us a saree that’s actually quite smart. It’s got the bright colours without being too in your face thanks to the white and ombre effect.

Will be quite nice for an afternoon function. Or as a roka outit no?
