I will be sharing a series of Indo western outfits over the next few weeks. In this series, I will share outfits that are curated by amalgamating Indian and western pieces. All these outfits will be simple to re-create with a touch of glam and are perfect to wear it to house parties, festival pooja celebrations or just to wear to the temple. I hope you find some inspiration from these outfits for the upcoming festival season. If you re-create any of these outfits, don’t forget to tag me and use the hashtag #indowesternlookXdl
In today’s post, I have created indo western outfits with linen dresses. The dress that feels like you’re still at home, in bed, wrapped in your linen sheets. The dress that hides your imperfections, the dress that layers like a champ. The dress that I like to wear all day every day.
I love linen dresses. Can you tell?
I am taking my love to another level with these 4 indo western outfits. Let’s get into the post without further ado
Indo Western Outfits with Linen Dress
1. Simple and Breezy
Pair an A-line line dress with breezy culottes and a silk dupatta for a comfy yet chic look. This is my favorite outfit because it’s simple, vibrant, yet dressy enough to wear it to parties. The large pearl hoops and metallic sandals add a touch of glam. Plus, you can never go wrong with an outfit that offers pockets.

2. Classy and Traditional
Nothing screams more traditional than a classic chudidar. But chudidar can look easily simple, to make it more dressy, I paired with a contrasting royal blue silk dupatta with gold zari. This can make for a great outfit for religious celebrations. Style it with a pair of gold jhumkas and bangles and you’re done.

3. Embrace Handloom Prints
Kalamkari is one of my favorite handloom prints. It refers to the ancient style of hand painting that is done with a tamarind pen, using natural dyes. Kalam means pen and Kari means craftsmanship. it Indian states of Andhra Pradesh and Telangana
I looked high and low for ready to wear kalamkari palazzo pants when I visited India last year but I had no luck so I got it tailored instead. You can pair any handloom print you have in your closet like Ikat print or Banasari bar code print with a linen dress to re-create this look.
I opted for pearl jewelry for this look instead of traditional gold or silver. The feminine gem represents nobility and grace which very well also describes handlooms.
4. Mix prints and have fun
This look is fun and extremely comfortable. Pair your favorite Patiala pants with a linen tunic or dress and add a contrasting printed dupatta. You don’t have to follow any rules for this look, mix and match whatever you have in your closet, and have fun.
