Go global with your outfit to make merry this Baisakhi. Vintage blouses doubling up as crop tops, palazzo and cigarette pants instead of the usual salwaar and phulkari dupattas as wrap-around skirts — we tell you how to be chic yet traditional.

Boys can also join the fusion bandwagon by ­­jazzing up their style. Waistcoats with neon-hued piping and phulkari stoles are ideal to add a dash of festive flavour to the ensemble. Here are four looks that you can rock at the Baisakhi party.

Choose an easy-breezy sari if you want to do things differently. Wear it over a fitted top and pin the pallu where the pleats are. Add some drama with bold gold ear-cuffs. Guys can make a statement in an elegant kurta pajama paired with a waist coat and open-toed

Wear your crop top as a blouse and throw the pallu around your neck. Finish up with a peppy-hued long coat. Guys, indulge in colour-play with a vibrant turban to jazz up your look. You can experiment with tie-dye or prints, too.

If you are game for some quirk, wrap around your bright phulkari dupatta as a skirt. Throw on a zari blouse as a crop top and fashion some cute raver buns. A phulkari potli and anklets are ideal accessories for this look. Dapper dudes can pair their cigarette pants with a kurta and throw on a phulkari dupatta for some desi tadka.

Team up your kurta with voluminous palazzo pants for a glam fusion. A simple side braid adds to the look. Love to make a statement, with colours, boys? Just pair your monotone outfit with a waistcoat with neon-hued piping and add a pop of colour with your turban.
