The full length maxi dress is an urban look designed for a more traditional look. This often leaves the impression of a dress or lehenga that adds to its elegance through the flow of the fabric and the spread edges. It is often a minimalist look with a subtle design that adds a royal and classy touch when wearing leggings, heels and light makeup. You can choose Indo-Western ethnic maxi dresses such as hem with sleeves of your own design, woven maxi dresses with attached lining and hem. Easy to contact with good neck and matching heels.
If you really want to stand out, choosing an A-line dress is a strong statement of style. Solid-cut A-line dress with features like V neckline, bubble sleeve, wide brim and front slit can give a very optimistic look to the outfit. You can also experiment with bright colors which is often a unique option with long earrings and high heels. Another pattern in A-line dressing is the blouse dress which is often available in pastel, earthy and beige shades with blouse pattern on the upper half of the dress, with clinch on the waist, flat fitting below the waist. This look can be complemented with large bracelets, gold heels and minimal makeup.
You can consider a large robe over lehenga and blouse and put on a simple scarf. The ethnic look of the jacket can be paired with your favorite Indian saree giving it a western twist by adding a belt, sharp belt or funky look. Combining the colors of pairing jackets with other garments always adds a creative note to the garment.
Another way to style and highlight is to match your clothes to your brother . There are many readily available sets for twins that help define a fun, happy relationship between siblings. You can choose unusual prints, cotton sets or themed dresses, which are specially made to suit the tastes of your brother and sister. Pastel shades like mint, pink, gray, peach were preferred by most for Indo-Western clothing and abstract prints. If the climate of your place is humid and hot, you may prefer cotton curts with a maxi dress made of mirror, georgette and chiffon material.
