Hi femme-s! Festive season is just round the corner. And only few days are left for it to knock your doors. You all must be busy exploring for the trends, styles, and new designs of your festive attires, Right? So here I am to help you out with my exploration of fashion trends & my likes and I feel it would be useful to y’all to some extent.

Then, are you all set to know about some sizzling stylish fashion trends for this festive season? Yeah….then, here is a quick and simply stylish guide to several trendy yet ethnic outfits of the festive season-

Like earlier year’s most elegant apparel chosen by me for the festivity, this year also Anarkali tops the list. You may say that how come I stick to the same fashion trend in this ever changing fashion world. It is, but when it comes to Indian Ethnic wear then among Salwar Suits, Anarkali/Kalidar suit tops the list and is ubiquitous. But here is a stylish twist in Anarakli-s. It is Indo-Western Fusion Fashion Trend. Fusion of Anarkali Suit with Midi= Anarkali Midi.

Anarkali Midi is ethnic fusion attire suggested by and inspired from Designer Shruti Sancheti. Unlike several ramp attires, it is more rational and can be worn in very elegant manner with no uneasiness on occasions like traditional Indian festivals. You can experiment with its cuts, pleats, flowy fall and can attach jacket over it. You can wear it long with or without slim fitted leggings, like the pic is showing. Team up with shimmery beige heels. For me it’s my personal favourite.

How can I forget our traditional and ethnic dress Saree. How can it be stylish? It is and can be even more when get fused with a western outfit like gown. Saree-Gown is another fusion wear you can go for, this festivity.

You can make your saree-gown more trendy by accessorizing it with metallic or pearly-chains around the waist and in their draping loose end (Pallu).

Traditional Saree-s can be trendier when designed, carried off & worn in trendier and new ways like Mermaid flow at the bottom shown here in beautiful cutwork saree http://www.pinterest.com/pin/299137600220456435/

Other alternative apparel can be Mullet Kameez Suit.Festive fashion Trends-2013 It is an exclusive, trendy yet ethnic fusion wear suggested by designer Aniket Satam and inspired from Archana Kochar. Mullet here implies a design of Kameez (or Kurta, an upper outfit) short in front and long at back. This designer kameez can be acquired by giving an asymmetrical cut to the hem of Kameez or kurti. Get this look by wearing a half or full sleeved bolero (formal shrug like jacket) over kurti and team up with cutwork and metallic gems-studded slim fitted leggings/churidar pants. Team up with T-strapped stilettos. This designer Look is also very rational for wearing on festivals and can be effortlessly tailor made just at your instructions.

Another alternative is Gharara Suit. Festive fashion Trends-2013 Gharara is a traditional bottom of Muslim Attires or is a Lucknowi style pants which are wide bottomed like Pallazo Pants and are traditionally paired with a short kurti or dupatta. To make it trendy, give a trendy fusion look by pairing a silk, three-quarter sleeved Silk-pleated crisp shirt. The look was inspired from Krishna Mehta & suggested by Aditi Holani. Team up this look with metallic golden sling bag and kolhapuri footwears.

Gharara style pants can also be worn with regular yet stylish Kurtas teamed with a duppata and yet another traditional look for festivity is ready for you. Have a look here: http://www.pinterest.com/pin/299137600220490379/

All in all fusion wears are marking their presence as most sizzling trends this festivity but conventionally pure traditional outfits also won’t lag far behind in the shopping list of us Indians. Thus if you want to be in line with fashion; be stylish and trendy in conventional way, go for fusion wears along with beautiful trendy ethnic wears!
