Tired of wearing formal shirts and trousers, or churidar-kurta combinations to work? These Indo Western looks for office wear are a nice change!
With traditional Indian motifs being incorporated into non-ethnic clothes, its no surprise that Indian women want to blend the Indo Western look into regular office wear.
You can look professional and still have fun with Ikat, Kalamkari and block prints. I have here for you, four styles that easily add Indian patterns and a pop of colour to your work gear. And the best part – you still stay comfortable, feminine and chic.
I find tunics (or kurtis) super comfortable. They cover unsightly tummy and back bulges but still magically flatter your figure. Look out for cotton blends, as they will keep you crease-free for longer durations. Tunics with Nehru collars, delicate embroidery and simple block prints will add to your Indo Western work-wear.
Crop Tops are in trend now. No, I am not thinking about the mid-riff baring ones in fashion shows! I am talking about the ones, which are form fitting, but with longer hems. They can easily be paired with trousers or skirts.
The variety to chose from! Silk, cotton blends and viscose -for their durability, are quite popular. Lean towards softer fabrics so it doesn’t look bulky when you knot them.

Light, form-flattering jackets definitely add poise to a woman’s attire. If you go for bold patterns, then balance it with muted colors. The viscose-blend Ikat jacket featured has a gorgeous soft fit and will add to your style statement.
No cleavage reveals and no short dresses to work. Pair sleeveless dresses with a fitting jacket to make it formal.
Stay stylish, stay chic, stay YOU.
