Invites come pouring in for every shaadi season, and that means you’ve got to have your wardrobe packed with a few essentials. All of us have had those moments when we absolutely had nothing to wear for that last minute sangeet invite. So ladies, if you don’t want to be in a fix the next time you have a wedding to attend, here’s some help. Check out these 11 fashion items for the wedding guest that will make sure you look fab and fantastic at every single shaadi you attend!
1. A dressy kurti
One dressy kurti is pretty much all you need to attend a wedding function. For a colleague's engagement, style it with a churidar and if you want to look slightly more dressy, you can always opt for flowy palazzos. Gorgeous jewellery to match and you’re good to go!POPxo Recommends: Global Desi Red Printed Kurta (Rs 959)
2. A pretty pair of jhumkas
Because jhumkas go with almost any outfit and it is the easiest way to pretty up your look. Whether you’re wearing an anarkali or even an ethnic one-piece dress, jhumkas always look timeless. We’re loving these gold toned jhumkas with little pearl drops. So pretty!POPxo Recommends: Gold Toned Jhumka Earrings (Rs 879)
3. A beautiful potli bag
Because your look is not complete till the time you carry a pretty matching potli. Potlis look extremely charming and if your outfit is slightly plain, you can make it look dressier with an embellished potli. POPxo Recommends: Dice Red Fabric Potli (Rs 720)
4. A pair of fancy juttis
We love juttis! And you can’t always wear heels for wedding functions. Juttis don’t only look gorgeous, they give an all new ethnic appeal to your look. We picked out these gold juttis just so they go with all your outfits.
Got a heavily embroidered kurti but don’t want to pair it with a salwaar or churidaar? That’s why we say that you’ve got to have at least one palazzo in your wardrobe. It’s the easiest way to glam up your look. Opt for prints and gold foil work if it’s a close friend's wedding that you’re attending. POPxo Recommends: W Printed Palazzo Pants (Rs 1,609)
6. A statement bracelet
Sometimes, all you need is a statement accessory to set you apart. For a cocktail or reception ceremony, you can totally go in for a plain gown and style it with a jewelled bracelet like this one. Trust us, it’ll be one stylish look. POPxo Recommends: Zaveri Pearls Studded Bracelet (Rs 539)
7. A festive dupatta
For your friend’s mehendi ceremony or the pre-wedding kirtan next door, a heavy traditional dupatta is all you need. A colourful dupatta like this one can be paired with any plain suit for a fab festive look. POPxo Recommends: Banjara Cotton Dupatta (Rs 419)
8. Can’t do without chandbaalis
Oh God, these are so gorgeous! Chandbaalis are our favorite kind of earrings and the over-the-top big ones are just perfect for a shaadi guest. Jewellery really can make you look wedding ready even if the outfit is comparatively plain. We’re loving these green and gold ones!
When in doubt, wear an anarkali. Most girls prefer to wear lehengas for family weddings, but anarkalis are just perfect for other shaadis you have to attend throughout the year. A pretty yellow anarkali like this is sure to fetch you a lot of compliments.POPxo Recommends: Biba Yellow Anarkali Suit (Rs 3,599)
10. A stunning clutch
Isn’t this absolutely stunning?! We love the mirrors, the crystals and the embellishments. So gorgeous! A clutch like this will go with all our outfits and will add that touch of class and style to your look. POPxo Recommends: Gold Toned Embellished Clutch (Rs 679)
11. Glam up with stilettoes
Every girl needs at least one great pair of heels in her wardrobe. When you don’t want to go all out with the outfit, a pair of heels is all that you need to slip into. Also, a gold or silver pair will go with all your shaadi dresses. POPxo Recommends: Gold Toned Glossy Heels (Rs 1,299)So girls, start shopping and do share all your lovely pictures with us!
