So if i like some style which is too skimpy, i either take up the material, the print or something form it which i like and make it my own in my classic styles. But ist hair i could never be fashionable or stylish with. Il ove to be stylish with hair. But im starting to learn some good hairdos and cute hairtoys to dazzle off my LHC groomed hair!
But im traditional to the core(the lovely work sarees and rich fabrics of India...anyone seen the movie Devdas will know).I love Indian dressing traditions and also absilutely LOVE the Western white wedding gown and the Victorian corsets and flaring skirts etc..There's so much beauty in those styles...i love to live in that era...
Sorry for going off topic.
I love Indian style basically and picka nd choose stuff from the current fashion and make it my own in my own way.
Here's a pic of Aishwarya Rai is what i can describe as the perfect portraying of Indian style and traditional clothing.Please have a look:

Hope you like it!

ETA: A few more very good pics:

I think Aishwarya Rai is just stunning! I have seen her in many Bollywood films. I think sarees are absolutely gorgeous, and I am envious that i can't get away with wearing them ...not being Indian, i'd probably get some strange looks! . My friend from work went home to India last year, and brought me a jewelled elephant, and a beutiful bindi. You should have seen the stares when i proudly wore my bindi the next day! I didn't care, it was gorgeous!

I do my own personal style. I wear whatever I like which is usually something neutral on the bottom mostly black, navy, brown and khaki and jazz it up with tops and jewelry, I love jewelry I usually wear gold but lately I have been mixing white gold with my yellow gold and stainless steel I also have been wearing brass and copper pieces lately too with some silver thrown in. I just buy what I like and don't worry about what is in at the moment, I am too old for that I am eclectic in my personal style.

I love my Birkenstocks and my Crocs

I agree with you wavebaby that Aishwarya is stunning but there are many more gorgeously gorgepus Indian women you havent seen.
Saree is 'the most' beautiful garment i think.Its absolutely elegent and very graceful. And anyone would look good in a saree, not necessary you have to be Indian. You just need to select the right colour and texture. There are soo many Indians who are as fair as Europeans or Americans and they do look fabulous with sarees. So remove from your mind that saress ar Indian....
Some good links of beautiful women in sareethese are gorgeous and a must see)

I think its great that you are bold enough to wear what you like and not bother what other people think about it. Way to go wavebaby...
Sorry for the hijack ..

Definitely personal style here. I love to wear bohemian skirts, but it isn't realistic when I've got a baby trying to climb them Right now, I'm living in capris (or shorts sometimes) and tank tops with sandals. I love dresses, but as a stay at home mom, they're just not practical.

I so rarely buy what is in fashion. Partly because I don't like the styles, partly because I don't feel comfortable wearing it, but mostly because I don't have a lot of cash to throw away on something that will go in the trash in 6 months.

Naj,

I was in Toronto, Canada a few years ago. There was an Indian couple getting married at the hotel. I sat in awe watching the women guests coming in. They were all dressed in saris and were just gorgeous. The fabrics, the colors, the jewelry. They truly were stunning. I have to admit, I was jealous. American women have a certain style, but we don't have an "ethnic" dress that really brings out our beauty like the traditional Indian dress does for their women.

Was Aishwarya the girl in Bride & Predjudice? She is lovely. So was the girl from Monsoon Wedding.

Now that I seem to be stuck in saree-mode my friend at work wore a stunning one (we had a "celebrate your heritage" day ) and I couldn't get over the gorgors fabric and the rich colors, and the jewellery! all that gold & gems! one of her necklaces had a huge crystal...i assumed it was a crystal....pendant, turns out the thing was a real diamond ! She said she feels completely safe wearing it because everyone naturally assumes, as I did, that it is fake.
Man, gorgeous jewellery & gorgeous sarees...i think i'd adjust very well in India!

(let's not go there with the food either.... chicken masala, butter chicken, byriani...getting hungry now! )

To have true style one needs self confidence, intuition, grace, creativity and flare.

Fashion just needs a credit card, IMO.
