Hello Hello! Pull a chair and take a seat ‘cause we’ve got something exciting for you. Whether you’re a bride-to-be or one of her best friends, we know how much you love weddings. And why wouldn’t you? There isn’t a celebration bigger than an Indian shaadi. What makes them so much fun? The dressing up part for sure! But exciting as it may be, picking out the right outfit to make the right kind of style statement can be pretty overwhelming. That’s why, we’ve worked really hard and picked out top 9 fashion trends that’ll make you the centre of attention this wedding season. Read on.
- Pretty in pastels
For the longest time, pretty much every outfit you’d wear to a wedding was restricted to shades of red and pink. But lately, we are seeing bewitching hues of pastels and neons making a splash at weddings. Channel the spirit of spring and look fresh in refreshing shades of lavender, beige, yellow, mint, peach, and turquoise.
- Go for gown saree
Confused whether to wear a gown or a saree? Why not both? You can pick from any design you like but we like ones with big and bold flare to make a big entrance. Also, these are incredibly comfortable and do not require an expert’s help to put together like a saree.
- Floral fantasy
Florals for spring isn’t a new concept but florals for weddings definitely is. They look fresh and airy, and add an extra bit of flare to your outfit without making it over the top. Best way to rock this look is to pair a floral skirt or lehenga with a blouse with minimal work. You can also do it the other way round. Feeling adventurous? Go for florals all over!
- Belt it up
Whether it is the fashion runways or celebrity weddings, one trend we are seeing almost everywhere is embellished belts with sarees. Unlike a kamarband, these are snug and are worn higher around the waist. Why do we love this trend? They cinch the waist helping achieve that hourglass figure every girl loves and also keeps that darn pallu in place.
- Happening in half and half
Not everybody wants to look their traditional best at a wedding. Some prefer going for the contemporary and for that lot, a half and half saree is the perfect pick. With two sarees woven into one, you’d definitely be a showstopper!
- Splendid in silk
Silk, like diamonds, is forever and that’s one reason why this precious fabric has survived the test of time. Look at any celebrity wedding, including the most recent Virushka ki shaadi, silk was everywhere to be seen. Then why not look your graceful best in an ornate silk saree?
- Mad about maang tikkas
If there is one wedding accessory that every girl loves, it has to be a maang tikka. So popular are these head adornments that even the west has stood up and taken notice with many Hollywood celebs rocking them. How do you make yours standout? Go big and go bold! Think Rajasthani borlas or eye catching kundans. Pair them with a shringar patti to add some extra razzle dazzle!
- Flawless in floor-length anarkalis
Anarkali suits are everywhere and we can’t help but love them. But with so much variety to choose from, how do you pick a style that’s a total knockout? Well, you’ll floor everyone with a floor-length anarkali for sure! They look like a gown and yet, have an intoxicating Indian charm that will sweep everybody off their feet.
- Elegant with an embellished clutch
So you have your outfit sorted. So is your jewellery. Now you need a bag or a clutch to carry your things, especially your compact and lipstick for that last minute touch-up. We recommend an embellished clutch or a traditional potli. They look elegant, add that extra bling to your outfit and can be a great conversation starter!
There you have it – the biggest fashion trends to make the biggest style statement this wedding season. Try these and we guarantee you’d be the talk of the town!
