We live in a time zone of fashion influencers, not designers. Nothing in this generation is permanent let alone fashion. One month Indian wear is in trend, while the other is all about baggy t-shirts and ripped jeans. In times like these, it does not make any sense to invest in expensive fashionwear. However, that mustn’t stop us from looking up to date right?

When opting for a slightly traditional look, instead of going out and buying new dresses here are a few fashion elements that will certainly make you look ‘desi’!

1Nose Ring
