The Indian fashion world has been in a mad frenzy since the inception of the ubiquitous kurti or Indian tunic.
The kurti is an Indian fashion trend that plays the perfect balancing act between modern and ethnic while giving women the freedom of comfort and movement that is profoundly missing from traditional Indian silhouettes.
Kurtis of all lengths, shapes and styles thrown over leggings or palazzo trousers have become a sort of uniform for women craving ethnic styling with a casual twist.
As it undoubtedly happens with all Indian fashion trends the kurti and leggings or trousers combo now borders on boring and dated. If you’re a keen observer of the latest Indian fashion and on the hunt for a refreshed and reinvented version of the fail safe and much loved kurti pairing then step aside for shirt dresses and tired jeans. This latest Indian fashion for women comes with all the merits of the previous trend with the added zing of rebelliousness.
Tired or ripped jeans have been a style staple for decades, fading in and out of fashion every few years as newer and cooler versions of their predecessors. This time around they’ve burst onto the scene of Indian fashion for women. Paired with printed, embroidered or brightly coloured shirtdresses these jeans are anything but ‘tired’. Shirtdresses and tired jeans are the cooler younger sister of the demure and simple kurti and leggings and are perfect for those who want to break away from the monotony of the old Indian fashion trend.
If you’re looking to quickly update your Indian casual wardrobe or are just gagging to try out something funkier at your next Indian do then give this latest India fashion a whirl. This trend has already found a major fan following amongst arty bloggers, boho casual loving fiends and edgy chicks who have all gone mix-match crazy to create their own personalised version of the style. Read on for our take on this latest trend and snap up some pieces before they’re all gone.
This Striking Shirt Dress by Sougat Paul is a versatile little linen number that can be worn with tired jeans in the cooler months or alone when the sun comes out to play. Let the bold print be the star of the look by teaming up the shirtdress with skinny white tired jeans that have minimal rips on the knees. Add chunky block heels or strappy sandals depending on the occasion and you have yourself an outfit that is just so sassy meets elegant.
Another Sougat Paul creation with an earthy base colour and pastel abstract print is the Silver Shirt Dress. The longer length and front slit are ideal to be paired with tired boyfriend jeans rolled up at the hem and skyhigh heels. The straight fitted shirtdress will show off your slim waist ensuring the loose tired boyfriend jeans don’t make you look like a homeless hobo. Work this Indian fashion trend at the next summer brunch or garden party for something ultra chic and contemporary.
For an outfit that is mostly western with a hint of ethnic try the Short Blue Dress by Sougat Paul with light turquoise skinny tired jeans. The coloured jeans accent the sleeves of the shirtdress beautifully while keeping the whole look very much in the spectrum of the latest Indian fashion. The bold and bright colours of this ensemble are just what you need to glam it up this summer.
