One thing that really annoys me about getting married? The thought of decking up in heavy finery for at least a year after the wedding! Always being dramatically dressed is like a prerequisite for every nayi bahu in India and that is just not my scene! Like really, which new age woman even associates with that “saji dhazi” bride aesthetic anymore? The idea today is to keep it cool but classy, statement but not OTT, and pretty but not basic. This is why I am constantly on the lookout for fun fits that seem like they have been pulled straight out of a celeb’s lookbook. And guess what? I already have a list of outfits ready to nail the vibe! Intrigued to find out more about my trousseau picks? Scroll through:
Understated But Impactful
For the longest time now I have been obsessed with Pakistani suits and this lilac Marigold set comes pretty close to what I have been looking for! I love the lace details on the kurta and pant’s hems and the fact they did not go overboard with the dupatta.
Playing It Cool
If a full-fledged desi set is not your newly married vibe, then I have the perfect fit for you. This fun dress by Abhishti is a literal steal with its unique gota accents, dramatic shoulders, and contrast colour-facing hem!
It is practically impossible to go for the Bollywood fashionista vibe without having at least one statement kaftan in your trousseau!
Some Headturning Glamm
The easiest way to look like a celeb without trying too hard? Draping is the name of the game and this Ilma fit gets it right!
Sexy In A Saree
Do yourself a favour and ditch all those chamku sarees for this soft, subtle drape by Picchika. Just.so.lovely!
Classics With A Twist
Shararas are super in at the moment and the best way to wear them? Stray as far from the traditional silhouettes as possible. Take some inspiration from this blush pink set by Gulabo Jaipur.
Love playing with layers? Here’s an outfit from Saaksha & Kinni that is sure to catch your fancy.
Here’s the perfect dress for when you get invited to a fancy dinner after the wedding. Pair this Geisha Designs dress with colour pop earrings and you’d be good to go!
Something Fluid, Something Sharp
Whoever says you need to go for strong lines for a power-packed look, needs to check out this Twinkle Hanspal set. It is so fluid and yet so sharp. Buy this stat if you wanna exude some girl boss vibes post the wedding.
