India is perhaps the best example of unity in diversity - different religions, language, customs and culture. There are differences in terms of tradition, lifestyle and fashion amongst the Indian people but the one change that cannot be ignored amidst all is the rising popularity of the Indo western Dresses. With Globalization, conventional ways of putting on salwar kameez and saris gave way to modern trends and styles. With greater number of Indian women from different age groups casting their vote in favor of western apparels, designers are thinking of novel ways to revamp the good old sarees or the traditional salwar kameez.

The current trend in Indian fashion is Fusion wear. Western necklines, waistlines, cuts, length and fabrics are now being merged to Indian wear. This union of the east and west has fashioned some truly inimitable looks that are extremely up to date. Not only are they high on style quotient but they are extremely comfortable to wear. The Indo western dresses are also easier-to-manage and have sleeker looks quite like their Western counterparts. The Indo Western Dresses look sexier maintaining the coy look that Traditional Indian dresses provide. Necklines popular in the West are now being adapted in Indian Dresses to lend a contemporary touch.

Though in the past, Indian women wore cotton blouses with full sleeves devoid of embellishments with predominance of Western influence, different styles of blouses like puffed sleeves, halter-neck, deep necks, and lycra-fitted blouses have made its way to the Indian women's wardrobe. The regular length of blouses has lessened too. A halter or strappy top over a straight salwar, large armholes, spaghetti straps Noodle straps are all western borrowings that are adapted well in Indian blouses or salwar tops. Straight cut pants has outcasted the traditional churidar. Spaghetti straps, sleeveless tops, slit pants, deeper necklines and better fitted kurtas are now the fashion rage of the season. Indo-western influences are evident in "kurta," or long "kurti," which is modern style of salwar kameez. There is a wide variety of fusion wear available in market to pick from such as crinkled crepe skirts, flowing tops over leggings, and bead work in A lined skirts or the Kurta motifs over track pants. The current empire line with broad borders in bold colors is the hottest addition in the long list of gorgeous Indo western dresses.

Embroidery and Motifs is significant in Indo western dresses. Motifs of flowers, elephants, leaf, peacock and Gods are designed on shirts or denim wear. Dresses have simple thread works in silver or satin or gold chain stitches. Payal and ghungrus on shirts or crystals are now being added for the purpose of embellishments. Denims are now decorated with a dash of sequins and colored artificial pearls. Animal prints on salwar suits also give a cool western look. Floral cotton shirts and tasseled stoles, kurtis having Indian embroidery, pencil long skirts with a handkerchief cut kurta clearly reveal the rising popularity of the fusion trend.

It's an undoubted fact that the dash of Indo-western fusion concept has spiced up the Indian wardrobe putting India at par with the international fashion scenario.
