UP IN THE HILLS
With a view of snow-capped mountains, lush valleys and clear skies, winter weddings are a dream come true for many couples. As a guest or bridesmaid, you want to stay stylish, yet stay comfortable in warm fabrics and long lengths. Opt for a plush velvet kurta in jewel tones or flowy anarkali with a warm dupatta for a traditional look that ticks the weather check. For a modern look, go for a concept pre-draped saree with a full-sleeved blouse in deep hues that fit the bill.
There’s nothing more Instagram-worthy than a wedding set against the setting sun on an exotic beach location. For an equally memorable ensemble, you should consider vibrant hues that emulate the sun, sand and sea. From a breezy yellow organza top and palazzo set to resort-inspired sarees and one-shoulder tunics, these outfits pack a punch with fuss-free silhouettes and eye-catching colour combinations.
A formal function calls for an elegant and timeless look at any time of the year. While an organza saree with a delicate floral print is a fail-safe option, you can even opt for a breezy asymmetrical dress that can be effortlessly dressed up or down, to suit the scale of the event. Turn heads in a saturated hue decorated with regal-inspired florals that also serves as a seasonless look.
If the invitation spells “by the pool”, you know you have to slip into something that’s easy to move around in and makes the most of tropical weather. Choose from bohemian like kaftans, a featherlight skirt set or new-age lehenga, as the occasion demands. For a sundowner with the bride’s squad, we recommend flowy layers and mixed prints, while a modern lehenga set is ideal for a ceremonial function by the pool.
To make your mark among hundreds of guests at a big fat Indian wedding, it’s best to go bold. This is your chance to experiment with concept drapes, layers of luxurious fabrics or dress in traditional silhouettes laden with heavy embroidery. Our favourites include an aegean blue draped skirt with frills and a contrast peplum blouse, a romantic pink lehenga with intricately embellished skirt, and an classic raw silk skirt set with a high-low kurta decked up with hand embroidery.
