The Fashionable Indian State: Mumbaikars Love For Hipster Rags

By Kaustubha

What vibrant hues are to Delhi, easy-breezy hipster is to Mumbai. In a layman's language, Mumbai folks are the pioneers of hipster fashion in the country. While in capital you see myriad colors of high-fashion, on the other hand Mumbaikars' approach to fashion is rather subtle and low toned. In Delhi, you'll find a range of sequin dresses and runway gowns while in Mumbai you'll witness a mellowed form of high-end fashion.

Even at popular places like Social or Blue Frog, you can barely spot a girl wearing a sequin dress. Street fashion in Mumbai is different from the rest of states. Peeps in Mumbai love quirky, unique and intuitive fashion fads, and that what attracts a hipster fashion phenomena in this part of the country.

It's a funny saying, while it takes many hours to get ready for a concert, a Mumbaikar can come in his/her Hawaiians cladding the most regular tee and a pair of baggy pants. Though people in this town do not appreciate gaudy and vibrant hues, but that doesn't mean they are any less than other fashion states. Here people have a hippie hint to their outfits.

It is usual to spot a guys wearing soda glasses, a way bigger than the size of his face, or a girl clothed in a tunic from Herculean era. They keep it simple yet quirky. And having inspired by Mumbai's quirky taste in fashion, we have decided to expose them here on our Boldsky Fashion section The Fashion Indian States, or let's say let's look into the closet of The Indian Hipster state.
