Bored of seeing your lehengas and saris taking up space in your wardrobes? This wedding season, it’s time to mix up your Indian staples with your casuals for a refreshing change. Looking for inspo? Look no further, because we’ve asked famed Bangkok-based designer, Sumedha Sehgal, for tips on how to expertly fuse your style
BHANGRA WITH YOUR BOMBERS
Turn up that Punjabi hip-hop with your bomber jacket and dhoti pants in this fun-jabi ensemble. Who says these pants are only reserved for the dance floor, as comfort meets contemporary in this fashion-forward combo.
The love story of ‘Jab Kurti Meets Jeans’ is coming soon this summer! The bold pairing of casual ripped jeans with your go-to kurti equals unmatchable chemistry. Slip on a pair of sneakers and sunnies, and prepare to take on your day à la mode.
LOUN-GE(JEANS) IN YOUR LEHENGA
Forget about florals from Forever 21, pair a bright coloured lehenga with your favorite denim and you’ve got the perfect ensemble for a sunny day at brunch. Sumedha’s combination of pink, white, and denim is all things flirty and fun for this summer!
POOLSIDE PYAAR IN YOUR PRINTS
Missing destination weddings and sundowners by the pool? Revamp a monotonous two-piece with a splash of colour. With a printed jacket, you can easily bring out the beach girl in you. Sumedha amps up her white crop and shorts with hues of blues!
Thank you for the inspiration, Sumedha Sehgal (@sumedhasehgal_design)!
