How to incorporate lightweight Indian ensemble in your daily look – Times of India


The richness of textures of Indian fabrics combined with luxurious hand feel and pragmatic functionality made it desirable globally for centuries. We have a variety of fabrics to choose from which are handcrafted, lightweight and functional but have sadly lost popularity in our country over a period of time.

From muslin, linen, Ikat, jamdani, chanderi , to many more not only defy the orthodox and conservative appeal limiting to occasion and festive wear, but these could be very well reimagined to suit the daily needs of a modern consumer. Today we look at how Ikat, a magically woven fabric is adapted to restyle and redesign the ethnic Indian wear to make a more favourable place in the contemporary Indian wardrobe.

Play of lightweight rich Ikat in mixed patterns and colors to create a chic fusion boho look. The different patterns of ikat and the fabric flare symbolises free-spirited soul at its best. Teaming this uber-cool top with cowl pants in kala cotton adds oomph to the look ideal for a brunch date.
