The wedding season is around the corner and we’re sure you all have loads of wedding invites. Now, you’ve got to have your wedding wardrobe sorted so you have enough outfits so as to not repeat one too many times, and you might even want to try new silhouettes and different styles. If you’re the kind who’s bored of wearing anarkalis, lehengas and sarees, here are some fun wedding dressing ideas you can try instead!
Possibly the coolest style to have emerged from the traditional dhotis are dhoti pants. You can pair it with a fitted shirt, add loads of jewellery, a pair of really sexy high heels and you’re good to go! Traditional and glam both.
C’mon, let’s accept it, crop tops are the new-age saree blouse! You can pair them with anything and everything and they’ll look good. Just add a really statement necklace over your basic crop top, pair it with a skirt and you’re all set!
Informal coats are really really in these days and are a classic example of how to let your personality shine through without being ostentatious at all! Wear your usual pair of denims and top, and put on a glittery, sparkly coat over it to nail this look! Try this for a cocktail evening maybe.
Ethnic skirts are a great way to pep your Indian wear style. Give way to your kitschy side and don a cute ethnic skirt instead of the regular lehenga. You can pair with a bustier top, a spaghetti top or even a well-fitted corset. Carry along an ethnic bag to make this look a winner! :-)
If you’re not a fan of Indian wear and want to try a western silhouette instead, opt for a floor-sweeping gown that not just fits well but also looks modern Indian. You could give it an Indian spin by teaming it with traditional jewellery.
Who said jumpsuits were only for your dates with the besties?! It’s time to break those rules because, that’s what fashion evolution is, right? Wear a plain jumpsuit with a bejewelled belt and a beaded clutch to look effortlessly stylish!
Thought you would never be able to wear these separates anywhere but to your BFFs party? Guess what? You’re wrong! A rich, silk and organza culotte in a deep maroon or a wine colour paired with a simple black top, gold jewellery and heels would look SO good!
Capes can make any outfit come alive, and are a rage in the Indian fashion scene these days! They look so picturesque, dreamy and right out of a fairytale that it’s a trend you might want to catch up on, if you haven’t already!
Shararas are basically voluminous pants with lots of flare and frills. It has the form of a lehenga but the functionality of pants and can be worn with multiple things. You can add a heavily embellished dupatta to a simple sharara to make the outfit come alive!
If all else fails, there’s always a dress! Just put it on and you’re ready for a formal event. You really don’t need anything to pair this with, it’s a solo garment that’s fuss-free and easy to slip into! Try out cuts that are asymmetric and anti-fits made in handwoven fabrics for the next wedding you plan to attend!
