I thought why not break this boring rule book, and spice up your outfits a little bit? I present to you 2 fusion outfits, which you can try on wearing this Wedding Season, and make those heads turn for sure. 😉 This look is comfortable, for a tiredsome wedding day, sexy, colorful and innovative 😀 Instead of the statement neckpiece you can even go for gold coins South Indian style belt worked up around your waist. I have paired gold nailpolish, as it will make your hands absolutely stand out.  Keep the outfit summer friendly, and you won;t be worrying about the air conditioner not working. 😉 Well if you still miss your traditional dress code and colors, I bring you the Saree + Peplum look. This look works pretty well if you want to keep it traditional yet innovative. You can drape the saree the way it is meant to be. Team the look with heavy Kundan or Uncut Diamond jewelry. When choosing the peplum, go for bright or neon colors, just like I used bright Fuchsia color, giving a neon effect.You can even add diamond or semi precious stone bangles for more bling. 😀 So girls, this is my innovative way of looking ultra-fashionable, trendy and unique this wedding season.
