It's not every day that you see an Indian wear wardrobe to die for, and when you do, it's all the fashion inspiration that you need to gear up for the many, many functions that require you to dress up in it. Sure, weddings and the multiple ceremonies that precede a shaadi have come to a halt, but there is still hope that sometime in the future, things will begin to look up. Meanwhile, we took notes from none other Alia Bhatt—her enthralling collection of lehengas, sarees and contemporary iterations are giving us all the inspiration we seek to use later as a wedding guest. Read on, bookmark and thank us later!
From Sabyasachi to Manish Malhotra, the actress' style prowess remains unparalleled. See for yourself!
A must-have for a wedding goer, there is no denying a lehenga's appeal and Ali Bhatt certainly knows that. From all-over embroidered floral jaals, courtesy Manish Malhotra, to the scene-stealing neon version by Sabyasachi, the actress has worn her fair share of elaborate looks over the years. Take cues to carry off the aforementioned versions for an upcoming do, or go the unconventional route with a black outfit. Want to try two colours? We suggest taking a look at the summer-perfect yellow and blue lehenga worn by the actress for a friend's mehendi. Scroll to view them all.
The unstitched garment has a lot to offer in terms of style and experimenting, and Alia Bhatt's appearances are testimony to the fact. Opt for a classic Banarasi brocade from your mother's wardrobe or wear a new-age saree like the actor's blue Manish Malhotra number. From going OTT with colour to elevating your wedding guest look with a sultry blouse, there is no dearth of options when it comes to styling the saree with effortless ease. Rope in your personal style and check out the options below.
A pale-hued kurta or an Anarkali works wonders for a pre-wedding function. Add prominent jhumkas like Alia Bhatt did with her flared Anarkali, or pick another accessory to elevate your look. For the maximalist, bold colours and intricate embroidery—as spotted on the actress—pave the way for an apt Indian wear look. Be it a short version like the chic maroon Sabyasachi seen on her or the blue embroidered kurta teamed with a sharara, a kurta always manages to create a lasting impression.
Wish to go the Bohemian route with a contemporary Indian outfit that allows you to experiment as well? From paisley print gowns to embroidered capes and maxi dresses worn in a no-fuss manner, Alia Bhatt's prior outings have given us a number of such OOTDs to look at. Just add towering heels and ornate jewellery for smooth sailing!
Cheers to a winning Indian wear wardrobe that will keep all eyes on you!
