On the Street, Mumbai & Bangalore: Hair Ornaments, Tie String blouses and saris worn “seedha pallu”; sequinned saris; fluorescent colours; kurtas with lace borders; skinny jeans worn with kameez and dupatta; handloom singlets; the enduring popularity of chikankari; gold and yellow thread. 

One of the nice things about Indian fashion is that even as it adopts new elements it marches to its own beat. Especially so when fashion is so homogenous these days.  Pity that Indian men have discarded the experimentation of the 19th and 20th century though. Having said that you do spot men in dhotis, chudidars and kurtas, especially during festivals.
