Much like a celebration after this horrifying steep, this Festive season brings fun and curiosity to explore new-old clothing trends with a dash of modern twist and newness.

The women’s fashion is all Retro and Full of colors!



The major trend that found its way back to 2021 is the Sharara Suit. Sharara suit is a three-piece set with a short top, flowy pants, and a Dupatta but this time it has a tweak. The usual Kurti is now shortened to either size of a Blouse or a shorter Kurti. Either of the two styles paired with a long Shrug is the current go! Complementing with a choker and a stud can elevate this look further!



Year after year, Lehengas never seem to go out of the Limelight! The Au Courant of the Lehenga is using a blouse that can be multi-styled as a crop top as well.  The Duapatta’s that usually come with this has also had undergone a modern twist. This year saw the trend of cuffed dupattas and necklace dupattas. Complementing with a Haaram with either an earring or a Teeka/headgear can make this look classy.


One timeless trend in Indian Fashion is a Saree.  This year saw sudden traction for the Silk and Sequin Sarees. Be it the authentic Kancheevaram saree paired with  Temple jewelry or a mild pastel-colored Sequin saree paired with a platinum/diamond choker, each of the looks has got a mix of neo-traditionalism in it.


The best find of 2021 is the fusion of Indian wear and Western wear. One of the two best finds in this series is pairing a Blazer/Trench coat with a Dhoti pant pairing with a heavy Jhumka or a neckpiece and a Jutti.



The other look is an Ethnic Jumpsuit. This clothing style came in summer colors mostly giving a monochromatic look, bold prints, or in classic materials like Benaras silk, etc.


The men’s fashion of 2021 took up the path of Indo-Western mix!



Kurti shirt with Jean is back but this time with bold prints and subtle colors. Kalamkari and stripes are the common styles for this year. Pairing this style with a Jean and a Khada can make this look casual yet festive.



One ever-classic and a must for every festival is a Veshti and this year isn’t any different.  Pairing up with a Chinese collar Kurta complements the authenticity of the Veshti. The look is complete by adding a Gold-Black combo Belt on the waist.


Dhoti Pants with a Silk/Satin Shirt with subtle to no prints is the choice of every youngster now. These pants can be paired with a sleeveless shirt with a Black Granite/Marble pendant to take it up a notch.
