This wedding season, we pledge to eat more and care less, talk more and Instagram less, dance more and drink less (well, we probably have a window there), buy more and pay less. Got your bestie’s wedding coming soon but nothing out-of-the-box to wear? Worry not. We found some amazing sales online for your fill of fashion void that won’t burn a hole in your pocket. Three outfits, three jewellery items and three footwear to get the bestie of the bride shaadi-ready.
India’s luxury and premium designer collection, when Aza Fashions has a sale, no true fashionista misses out. They have a fantastic sale of up to 70% off going on (even on their newly added collection) so make your pick. As for us, here are our top three:
This all-orange embroidered anarkali, by Shyam Narayan Prasad, will make no traditional suit look ordinary ever again. The tie-up details around the waist will give you a more shapely figure, something that not all ethnic wear outfits deliver. Buy it right away when it’s still available at a 35% off.

Even though my bestie has no plan of getting married anytime soon (damn her) this floor-length flared kurta is already on it’s way to my home. Firstly, because I love pink.

Remember the pledge we took to dance more? Here’s how you can do that without hurting your feet and looking your stylish best. Juttis! It doesn’t happen too often when Needledust one of the fab places for juttis, has a sale but when it does it’s advisable that you drop everything and start browsing. Here’s what we liked the best:
Red is a wedding favourite since forever. Apart from your lips, add a little more of it to your outfit with these juttis. With a golden embroidery of a palanquin or a bride’s doli, these juttis make for a perfect gift for the bride-in-the-making and even the bridesmaid. Send her off in style.

If you can’t handle all the ‘chatak matak’, no reason for you to step out of your comfort zone for one night. Here’s a pair of beige juttis in a beautiful play of sequins and what we like to call, ‘fairy dust.’ These babies will go with all your outfits and can also be worn to the office with kurti and jeans.
