Twist to the Traditional
Bid farewell to the highly traditional outfits and opt for a fusion look. A peplum choli with embellished lehenga is out-of-the-box and classy. Do not miss out on the sharara pants that are hot this season. Team it up with a sleek kurta in any playful colour like orange, pink or yellow. An open kurta with a crushed skirt works well for the function to be held during the day, to keep your look easy and breezy. A cocktail saree with a dainty blouse is a refreshing and a welcome change that you can use to your advantage.
If you want to put your suits to rest, then go ahead and experiment with sarees. Young ladies, gone are the days when you thought the saree is just for older women. These days there are many interesting styles and designs that can flatter any young girl’s frame.
Ditch the traditional saree (or the boring draping style) and pick a stitched, pre-draped saree or a saree gown. These are ideal for the cocktail or the reception. Pick an edgy blouse, maybe in print or a heavily sequinned one, with a plain saree to make a statement. You can also pair a net saree with a full-sleeves blouse to be conventional yet not too covered up.
Channel the opulence in a lehenga. Pick out rich fabrics like a velvet choli teamed up with a raw silk lehenga. Go easy on the embroidery, but choose a colour that compliments your skin tone. Pastel tones combined with neon and light embroidery can be worn for a day function. Lehenga is an elaborate silhouette, so be careful with the colour and work chosen since you do not want to overshadow your sister- the bride.
