Since party is in air these days, you do not have to repeat your last year’s fashion trends, instead can opt for some fusion pieces, which are quite a rage this year.
It’s a known fact that the festive wear demands ethnicity, tradition-based and certain grandeur. Considering this month is all about parties, including bridal shower, cocktail parties etc. are you ready to splurge once again after the festive expenses? And not to mention, the winter shopping is just at your door step, so it’s better to smartly alter your wardrobe staples to make them worthwhile as great party wears.

As per Nitin Chawla, the first thing you should take into consideration is picking the right shade. Nitin had this to suggest,
“Go in for warm tones of red, orange and gold as they are easier to mix and match.”
If you’re thinking of pairing any of your printed festive outfit with a regular item then make sure you’re adding some neutral shade to your look. By mixing solid colors, you’ll just end up breaking the visual pattern.

If you have a long embroidered jacket then make it as the focal point by pairing it with a simple shirt and cigarette pants. Even dhoti pants would work wonders to give you a Bohemian look. Or else you can simply pick a fusion saree such as sari with dhoti pants by Anamika Khanna.
I am pretty sure, you must be having a short anarkali in your closet, so use it as a mini dress just like the sweater dress donned by Cameron Diaz at the red carpet. Do not forget to accessorize it with a statement waist belt to give an edge to your fashion experiment.
