Tamy's Stylebit


Indian fashion is often driven by its festive colors. The younger ladies who wish to wear the Sari now opt for vibrant almost neon like hues and metallic weaving. Olivia Stacey wore a teal & red Sari created by Sumita Bhojwani which included sequin embellishments.


Create your own modern Indian fusion using edgier pieces. Tamy Lugo was wearing a peacock print harem pant and cropped top both by Sumita, which she styled with a faux leather vest and gladiator heels. Classic apparel like blazers, cotton tees and nude pumps are also a very good addition, when you wish to tone down the Bollywood zest a little.
