6 Asymmetric silhouette.
If there’s one thing I love when it comes to fashion — and trust me, I love a lot of things — it’s asymmetrical clothing. Sure, symmetry is beautiful and pretty and all that. But maybe the sartorial world isn’t always supposed to be about what’s “traditionally pretty” or “classic.” Maybe it’s supposed to be about individuality, uniqueness, and out-of-the-box ideas. An asymmetrical hem, silhouette, or detail can be easy ways to exercise that creativity.
High-low tunics and Kurtis have always captured our hearts for the chic style they imbue. They have been one of the top fashion trends, and this festive season is no different.
Asymmetric silhouette is the new trend to follow this year,This Fiorente powder blue fish tail skirt with an attached gold & bronze embroidered drape makes a statement piece to get inspired this festive season.
7 Belts with pre-draped saree.
From sarees to lehengas to anarkalis to suits, belts are everywhere on the Indian fashion scene in 2020. In fact, we started seeing belted sarees back in 2016, and come this year, they’re still the #2 trend. So belts are here to stay.

8 Embroidered jacket.
The saree or lehenga choli is an undeniable classic but what keeps it from becoming a relic and at the forefrunt of contemporary fashion is the way it is adapted to changing styles. Jackets in various lengths and designs replacing the traditional saree blouse or choli is one of the hottest trends to emerge from 2018, one you absolutely must try.
This year we have come up with an embroidered jacket over a sheer corset in a beautiful powder blue colour styled interestingly with a belt over a waist on a flared skirt makes this outfit simple yet elegant and a must try trend to follow this festive season.
9 Ivory colour and fringes.
Whites and ivory are usually not your Indian ethnic wear color, but warmer shades of white are a whole different story. They look subtle, creating a powerful combination that screams chic. Invest in ivory and creamy colored sarees this festive season for a subtle look. These hues look best when paired with golden or silver thread work, even simplistic ones.

Being one of the most popular and traditional embroidery styles, Chikankari, introduced by the Mughals, is one classic handwork that is a favourite amongst every Indian woman. Known for their sheer elegance and rich look they exude, chikankari outfits are almost every Indian couturier’s cult weave for decades now. Even though chikankari only started as a white-on-white embroidery work on muslin cloth, it has now embraced the use of colors. Be it trendy puja suits, sharara & gharara sets, anarkalis or lehengas, the modern designers are infusing the charm of this subtle art form with Mokaish, sequins & other embellishments into anything and everything and how beautifully!
