Keeping to the gifting season rituals, we know how painstaking it is to roll out another beauty plan for your bestie’s wedding. We know you’re the ‘dulhe-ki-saali’ and the second next to the bride who must rock the day. Well, it doesn’t have to be that complicated. We’ve got you choices that look great regardless of your body type and skin tone:
1. Raw Silk Skirts
If you’re tired of the usual net lehenga and pencil skirts, don’t forget to experiment with the noble charm of raw silk skirts. Try a banarsi printed raw silk skirt? Or pair them up with crop tops, heavily embroidered blouses and look your dapper best!
2. Fairy Gowns
Design your own Cinderella gown with work details and patterns for the bid wedding day. Instead of opting for a total western look, choose desi handiwork for your gown detailing.
3. Stylish topped Lehengas
These days you don’t have to worry about the weight of your lehenga, thank the trends you can don a crop top or a cold shoulder top over that beautiful bridesmaid lehenga – broad bottom to fishtailed ones.
4. Cape Fashion
Cape fashion is the in-thing this season.The best thing about capes are – you can flaunt them with any of your salwar kameez, lehenga, straight fit dresses, or even a saree! Try a net cape for some change?
5. Amazing Anarkali
You can opt for different coloured floral anarkalis, asymmetrical patterns, or raw silks with colour blocks. You can even style your anarkali dress with a contrasting ethnic jacket, trails, capes, or long jackets.
6. Dhoti Pants
If you’re not a lehenga girl, be the pant girl! Dhoti pants look no less trendy. You can create a fusion of traditional and very contemporary teaming up your dhoti pants with short kurta and a braided paranda. To complete the ethnic avatar, wear a mojari!
7. Palazzo Pants
Who said you can’t flaunt a palazzo on a wedding? Just make sure your pants aren’t too western but a long, flowy one worn with straight fit kameez or an anarkali. You can also go for a halter neck to add spice to your style!
8. Dhoti Sarees
If you’re too confused between a pant outfit or a lehenga, wear both. Yes, we are serious. Create a traditional fusion with dhoti sarees that give a flavor of both desi and videshi wedding outfits.
9. Stunning Sarees
If you’re not willing to experiment with the wedding day ritual, wear the unbeatably Indian Saree. Choose a fine draping style – the Assamese mekhela, the Gujrati seedha pallu, etc. Try contemporary prints to create a stunning saree look!
