Fusion looks, or in other words, indo-western lookbook has become a trend. And the best part about these styles is it comes with no rules. The more you divert from what is expected, the more it becomes fusion. People, celebs and especially bloggers are experimenting a lot in this genre. Fusion can be a mix of clothes, accessories or even prints from two or more completely different backgrounds. Take inspiration from some of these bloggers to ace the fusion look this season.
The White Shirt
A white shirt is the most versatile piece of outfit which you can invest in. And when it comes to fusing fashion, these are your best bets. Add a touch of ethic, be it a lehenga, dupatta or ethnic pieces, they will look great with a classic white shirt. Take a queue from That Boho Girl, she has styled her white shirt with a Rajasthani cotton skirt. Mules and the silver choker is adding so much more to the look!
Layer it up
Layering is again a great addition to any fusion look. Just take any ethnic outfit, kurtas, gowns or sarees, adding a layer instantly adds that edge to the whole look. Be it any kind of layering – denim, blazers, jackets; the crazier it sounds the better it will look. Style Drive has added a long white vest to her silk saree and I am so loving this one!
Saree with a twist
Sarees and fusion go hand in hand. When it comes to fusion, sarees can be so versatile in itself. A different drape, adding a bralette instead of a blouse or wearing a chic crop top and jacket, the creativity is endless. And Komal Pandey is one such blogger who has shown us so many variations when it comes to saree. Take this look for instance. A simple cold shoulder top instead of a blouse has taken this saree to another level.
Add that belt
Another invest which every girl should make is a broad waist belt. Add a belt to your saree or your ethnic gown, the look becomes fusion instantly. My favorite one has been adding a waist belt to your dupattas. Same as a saree, there are endless variations on how you drape a dupatta and when you have a belt to compliment them, the look becomes quite fusing. Take a cue from The Chic Gazette and drape your dupatta around your neck and fix it with a belt. It’s a classic drape and can never go wrong.

Getting confused? Well, the best you can do is take two completely different pieces of outfits and combine them together. Without any hassle and effort, you will surely look chic. For instance, take this look from Juhi Godambe. She has taken a Dhoti pant and combined it with a crop top; very simple, minimal, yet chic.
Taking it to the next level
Is fusion look limited to just clothing? Well no! You can go all vogue with your clothes, but adding extremely ethnic accessories will give you fusion look to the next level. Try adding a statement silver neckpiece or bangles, etc for this one. Take inspiration from That Boho Girl when it comes to fusion looks. I love how she has added silver Payal and bangles to her boho fashion.
As I said earlier, the more you break the rules the more this look becomes pretty. I loved how Masoom Minawala has styled a dupatta over her jumpsuit. It looks so edgy and experimental. The jumpsuit in itself has so much drama to add, with what its sleeves and off the shoulder. Draping a dupatta like a saree has given me major twist to this fusion look.
