Since we are well into the wedding season and because shopping season never really ends, here’s adding some more awesomeness to your Tuesday morning! Here’s a list of the hottest bridal buys for the month of September. So whether you are looking to shop for your upcoming shaadi, or just want to indulge in good ol’ retail therapy, this list will be a welcome treat and how! Enough said, let’s go shopping!
A great pair of chandbalis is all you need to spruce up even the simplest of outfits. This one from Bansri comes with swarovski crystals and pearls set in german silver and will look gorgeous with an elegant evening gown (Rs 11, 340) for your glitzy cocktail function.
One look at this fairytale lehenga, and we know you’re already thinking of buying it. The purple and blue colour combination works great, especially for an evening function. The silk lehenga exudes elegance and the cut-out shoulders give it a nice and stylish touch. A pretty pair of earrings from Sonal Gupta (Rs 4,500) and you’re all set for the night that lies ahead!
Who said sarees are not always comfortable to wear? And that they take a lot of time to be draped? Well, the draped dhoti saree comes with a pre pleated pallu so you just have to slip it on! A matching potli bag from Kalki Fashion (Rs 1,140) and you’re ready for your dance performance at the bestie’s sangeet.
A gown cinched at the waist accentuates your body frame and flatters those curves just right. The cape sleeves, delicate sequins and the gorgeous grey colour, everything about the outfit screams attention! Complete your look by styling the gown with a pair of Kundan earrings (Rs 399), a pretty pink lip shade and a stylish messy bun.
As a wedding guest, a statement clutch is a must in your wardrobe. A lipstick for touch up, your credit card and car keys, this one clutch will hold all your essentials while you sip on a wine and catch up with your friends. A raw silk base with hand embroidery, the neutral colours will go with most outfits.
A touch of elegance
Newlywed? We get it, welcome dinners can be quite overwhelming. And we are sure you want to make the best first impression. How about this lime yellow salwar suit with golden zari work?! It is simple yet elegant and will definitely earn you quite a lot of compliments! Silver-gold juttis from Needledust (Rs 3,200) will ensure you look stylish and feel comfortable.
Be it the bride, her sister or the bestie, choker necklaces are all the rage and we’re so not complaining! We love the trend and chokers are a great way to make your traditional look stand out and look edgy. Wear it as a single statement accessory or pair it with a layered necklace for an elaborate look.
Who said cotton/linen sarees are boring? This saree can work wonders, especially if you are having an engagement ceremony on a sunny winter afternoon. A sequined silver blouse (Rs 849) will definitely complement this blue wonder.
Weddings involve a lot of running around. As a bride or her best friend, from the ‘meet and greet’ sessions to making sure that everything goes as planned, it can take a toll on your feet. A sturdy and pretty pair of juttis will provide comfort and the scattered pearl design of this pair will add to your style. An anarkali or a straight suit, juttis look great with most styles!
If you are looking for a chic ensemble for an intimate engagement party, then let it be this one. A pastel peach collared cape top with a matching pleated skirt, the outfit has a relaxed vibe. We love the colour, the minimal embellishments and the unique style. Perfect for when you want to make a statement, without having to try too hard.
