3 Peppy Ways To Do Fringe The Desi Way


Fringe is a trend which created quite a few waves in 2015 and judging by the reports, this trend isn't going out anytime soon. So brace yourselves to flaunt this trend in new innovative ways.
If you ask me, well, I just totally love fringe. Fringe earrings, fringe shoes and fringe jackets are ways I have already worn this trend in and now it is time to blend it in a Desi twist.

Top Indian fashion designers like Manish malhotra  and Rabani rakha have already presented fringe as a part of their ethnic collection but wearing fringe the Desi way is still not a big thing which is reason enough for you to try this trend. I mean don't we all want to be the first one to rock a trend? So Desi fringe it is! How to do it? well here are some tips and tricks:
  • Fringe saree: 
The saree has been reinvented, revamped and modernized in several different ways and fringe is a version of this revamping. If you want to move away from the traditional saree drape and want to have some fun with the six yards, fringe is the way to go. Fringe saree is a normal saree with fringe detailing attached to the pallu. Many versions of fringe sarees are available like the fringe hemline saree and more, but pallu with a fringe is the most popular way to rock this trend. A contrast fringe makes most impact but fringe in same colour as your saree also works well.
Tip: With contrast fringe go minimal on accessories
  • Fringe dupatta
Dupattas with short fringe detailing isn't a new thing. Back when I was small, my Mom used to have many Dupattas in silk and cotton with fringe ends but the trend faded away. Now with fringe making a comeback in such a strong way, fringe dupattas are also being spotted. If dupattas is your thing then you should definitely give this trend a try.
Tip: Colour clocking works best with a fringe dupatta. Add a bright silk dupatta with fringe detail to your plain white or pale blue Salwar kameez or kurta and give it an instant peppy twist!
  • Fringe blouse with lehengas: 
Fringe blouse is another fresh and fun way to wear the fringe trend with a Desi twist. Manish malhotra sparked off the fringe blouse style and I am totally loving his take on it. He attached beaded fringes over sleeveless blouses and paired them up with heavily embellished or embroidered lehengas. These are ideal for the sister-of-the-bride or the bride herself, if she wants something fun for her Mehendi or Cocktail . The best part about these fringe blouses is that they are super versatile and can be mixed and matched and reused with other outfits to create more quirky looks. Pairing these blouses with palazzos, cropped pants, plain lehengas and skirts all work well.
Tip: Skip the dupatta, let the fringe do all the talking.

More tips to rock fringe with ethnic wear:
  • Ethnic outfits are all about colour so go in for vivid bright hues and let the outfit do the talking.
  • Pair your fringe ethnic wear with quirky fun jewellery. Think tassled earrings, feather cuffs or hand harness.
  • Fringe in your outfit gives it an Indo-western fusion twist so choose the occasion to flaunt this trend carefully. Skip Pujas, pheras or Anat karaj. Mehendi, Sangeet, Diwali parties, are the perfect timeS to try the Desi fringe.
Stay stylish and Desi.
