Girls, better to give a little twist to your traditional look.

#1. Off-shoulder crop tops

With off-shoulder crop tops trending this season, one can team it up with traditional embroidered long skirt or pants to give tradition a little dash of fusion.

#2. Prints and colours

Small prints with floral and soft pastel colours bring in perfect balance to the look.

A pinch of bling can do wonders to your attire.

Ensembles in champagne pink, fuschia, faded red, mint green, baby blue etc would not only add freshness to the look, but sequinned attires in these colours would definitely make you look more classy.

#3. Beautiful bottoms

Dhoti pants along with tops, colourful palazzo pants and crop tops is a major hit this time. Many celebrities are spotted wearing this style.

For the celebrations during the day, light breathable fabrics like chiffon or georgette are best; it helps you carry the outfit with ease.

#4. Accessories

Your fusion look cannot get completed without the accessories.

One can make a bold style statement if you are wearing plain silk kurta. One can draw attention to the face with statement necklaces or statement earrings to lift up the mood.

#5. Bag it!
