Luxemi’s ‘One Outfit Two Ways’ guide

While we never have trouble making the most of that sheath dress or styling a peplum blouse differently every time, squeezing versatility out of our Indian wear leaves us in a fix. So in a bid to play your sartorial saviors, Luxemi has put together a fun guide for you – one that allows you to wear the same traditional ensembles in utterly distinct ways every single time. Trust us when we say that these easy tips will instantly catapult your outfit into a brand new one and allow you to stand out in a crowd of run-of-the-mill ensembles. After all, we do believe in twice as nice!

Yes, we all love a pretty anarkali, but we believe in changing it up every once in a while. There’s no better way to do that than by jumping onto the latest bandwagon in fashiondom – sharara pants over churidars.

While you can definitely wear our tangerine salwar with aqua embellishments in the conventional way, don’t be afraid of trying something different for a fresh new look. Swap the churidars for these blush blue sharara pants by Kisneel which will complement the vibrant anarkali beautifully. You can even skip the dupatta and go OTT with the accessories instead. Flaunt this accentuated style at a mehndi, dinner party or even a sangeet!

The hottest trend to have sealed its fate on fashion’s wall of fame is pairing lehengas with jackets for a more structured look.

Wear our neon gota work lehenga by Laila Motwane but with an unexpected twist. Pair it with this coral angrakha with velvet and gota embellishments for a look that will instantly give you the reputation of a sartorial risk taker. You can go sans the dupatta with this one, and elevate the attire with a charming head piece and statement earrings. The fresh colors make it perfect for a day time or afternoon function. Go a step further and have some fun with your hair-do as well, a fish tail braid might just do the trick!

Buck the blouse

How many times have you worn a lehenga the regular way? More than you can remember, right? Luxemi has a fresh new style you can try out. When you’re bored of the usual style, skip the cropped blouse and opt for a long anarkali-esque top instead with your lehenga.

Try out this trend with our scarlet and purple gota work lehenga by Laila Motwane which can be teamed with our sequined gold anarkali for an unusual spin. Throw on a simple red dupatta for a casual event or dress up the look with the heavily embellished dupatta. A beautiful kundan set is the only finishing flourish the look needs. This look is ornate enough for even the bride to wear for one of her wedding functions.

So go on, embrace Luxemi’s ‘One Outfit Two Ways’ guide and be the belle of the next ball you attend!
