Wedding is a traditional affair, hence, one should focus on sporting contemporary trends and keeping it old school in equal measures. Even if you don an edgy dress, keep the silhouette well-balanced by pairing the ensemble with a traditional dupatta, or eastern jewellery like polki, kundan etc.
There is no winter successful without ladies parading around in velvet attires. This wedding season should be no different. This fabric reflects a subtle shine of its own so, flaunt a shirt in a gorgeous solid hue and kick back while it turns heads for you.
Back to the roots
You will find the best display of cultural elements in attires today; rickshaw motifs, truck art, tribal jewellery, pouches with traditional crafting and outfits with ethnic cuts have been jazzing up wardrobes and are not to be missed!
Metallics, like monochrome and pastels, aren’t governed by the regular rules of fashion. Luckily, that means that we have a few more breathtaking options to don. Avoid heavy accessories or too bold a make-up so as to not overwhelm the overall look.
Pretty much anything in a cutout manner is pretty ‘haute’ right now. From models to celebrities and fashion bloggers, everyone looking to remain at the top of their style game is adopting the trend. Especially with the wedding season on the rise, there is a dire need of fresh trends so, make sure you don’t get left out on this one.
No matter the season, pastels are the go-to shades for any formal get-together. These colours look particularly beautiful when embroidered upon in bronze. Make a few beautiful statement numbers that you can mix and match with other pieces and reuse easily.
Doesn’t it make you glad when fun retro styles march their way back into the current fashion scene and you can find a way to sport your mum’s dresses from when she was young? Without a doubt, gharara pants are an absolute treat to wear as they are stylish, traditional and comfortable.
On another scale
The fish scale detail on shirts is big these days. Needless to say, it is quite a peculiar display of fashion, but easy on the eyes nonetheless. This sari combines the best of the best: silk draping, boat neck and a cutout, fishnet blouse.
All about the cape
There is little contemporary fashion has given us in a while that is as good as the cape. From sheer to solid, embroidered to printed, this pretty separate can be worn with multiple pants, go at all sorts of events and make one look extremely mod and elegant.
Always remember, latest fashion aside, ultimately your dress has to make you feel happy and comfortable. Even if it is a shade that’s not ‘in’, or a cut that has been around for a long time, if it works for you (flatters your complexion and body), go ahead. There is nothing more beautiful than a confident woman.
