Youngsters in Bengaluru give thumbs up to easy-to-wear fusion outfits | Bengaluru News – Times of India

BENGALURU: Youngsters in the city are looking for comfortable fashion this festive season with most of them continuing with virtual Navratri celebrations. Those heading out for garba events are choosing fusion clothing (t-shirt and lehenga, crop top and lehenga). And the most important accessory of the season is matching masks.
Krutika J Dattani, a fashion enthusiast, says owing to the pandemic and Navratri either continuing to be a virtual event or low key, youngsters are looking for fuss-free, easy-to-wear drapes. “Indo-western outfits that give a contemporary twist to the ethnic look are high on everyone’s wishlist. A printed Bandini crop top with a skirt or a dhoti skirt is one option. One can even pair this with a chiffon long-ruffled jacket and not to forget the mang tika with a bindi and some oxidised jewellery to go with it,” she says. A plain black top can also be paired with a bright pink kodi jacket and jeans, Krutika adds.
Meena Jain, who is pursuing a course in fashion designing, says expensive attire is not a priority this year as people are still being cautious and celebrating the festival on a small scale. Upcycling clothes, wearing comfortable outfits and taking inspiration from Instagram fashion handles are common, she adds.
Apartment complexes around the city are also lit up this year with garba nights and pujas. TNC Sridhar, president, Ranka Nest Apartment Owners’ Welfare Association, says it is nice to see youngsters dressed at their best, adding to the festive spirit. “It adds life to our community. The residents are maintaining the right spirit of garba while following Covid guidelines,” he says.
