The High Low Life

Looks | August 30, 2016 | By

It’s almost like we Indians have a huge treasure chest in our closets. We find inspirations not only from our traditional and ethnic wear but also from western wear.  We are spoilt for choices; and then there is fusion to experiment with.

In this look we will once again borrow from our traditional silhouettes to showcase infused fashion. By instilling modern flare to traditional garments, we are rediscovering our love for everything Indian.

This look focuses on the high-low kurti which was discovered last summer in India and everyone wore it with rage. Though the earliest versions of this style are observed in western skirts called mullets (1880s), we Indians love mix-n-match so we thought why not infuse these cuts into our Kurtis? The high-low Kurti has different lengths in hem on the front and back and it is this asymmetric feel that makes this Kurti style very modern, dressy yet simple.High low 4

If you want to pair a kurti with denim or skirts this high-low style is the best fit for you.  A high-low kurti is ideal for girls with long-tall legs as this asset is heightened by the asymmetric hemline, however, if you are a petite girl (shorter than 5.2) than this style might stunt you further so avoid it.
