5 Times Kiara Advani Showed Us How To Ace Fusion Dressing

Kiara Advani

Anything fusion has all of us desis in a chokehold. From our tryst with Indo-Chinese food to our armoire being loaded with a surcharge of fusion silhouettes, we love a good amalgamation of aesthetics. India’s colonial history has played a huge role here, all thanks to our folks’ incessant need to fit into the ‘posh circles’ at the time. While the origins of this trend may not be so humble, its evolution certainly is.

Bollywood celebrities have hopped on this bandwagon and rightfully so, given the global stature of their fame. And after thorough trendspotting, we’ve come to the conclusion that Kiara Advani emerges triumphant in dominating this trend. From promotional appearances for Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 and Jugjugg Jeeyo, her sartorial choice of play is equally desi and videsi.

Lakshmi Lehr, her stylist extraordinaire often opts for Indian heavy embroideries and prints on silhouettes with a global spin. Here, this sharara set by Ritika Mirchandani solidifies this very notion given the power shoulder cape and the plunging neck construction of the blouse.

This ivory organza Brielle blazer set by Mishru is a great festive option given its ornate detailing on the bodice and effortless simplicity on the sleeveless jacket and wide-leg pants. The chunky chain choker by Drip Project is a welcome addition and helps balance the look.

Next up is the Arpita Mehta chainmail goodness. The cowl detail and the head-wrap make it the ultimate desi-resort wear option coupled with the flared trousers, lending it ease of movement.

This Rishi & Vibhuti pair is the clear winner. The RV Periwinkle overlay set is embellished to the T, without overpowering the ensemble all together. The sheer cape and bikini style top give it the western spin and the tassels and floral details help make it my mom’s favourite.

A classic JJ Valaya zebra print sari. What’s not to like? And the belt addition takes the fusion element up a notch, making it a statement alternative to a plainly draped saree. Don’t get us wrong, a simple sari is enough on its own, but minor additions like these certainly don’t hurt.
