Anarkali suits have made their mark, a rather strong one, in Indian festivities and traditional ceremonies and I am pretty sure that every Indian girl reading this article must have a gorgeous hanging in closet which has been worn considerable number of times. Wedding outfit trends change every year for the bride and for the bridesmaids as well which led us to the concept of this article. Irrespective of your silhouette, here is a list of wonderful Indian wedding wear which will beat even the bollywood dresses like a pro!
Shararas have been a part of the Indian cultural dresses for a faction of people for centuries now which was lost amidst the jeans and the churidars but now it’s back with a bang and is here to stay. Shararas look absolutely gorgeous when paired with short and heavily embroidered kurtis and matching dupattas. For the main wedding function, opt for vibrant shades such as red, pink, yellow or dark blue. You can mix different shades like parrot green kurti with light pink dupatta and sharara for next level vibrancy.
2. Capes and skirts
Capes are so in trend this wedding season and even if you think it might get monotonous, it’s a must try girls. Pair net capes or heavy material capes with your lehengas, long skirts or dhotis for the most glamourous looks. You can take inspiration from Mira Rajput’s reception look for a better idea and also search the web for the best cape designs to opt for a wedding.
3. Dhotis in different varieties
Dhotis have been the quirkiest trend this season and if you want an urban or indo western look, then a dhoti should be the next ethnic addition in your closet. You will be surprised to know how versatile a dhoti can be used and how variantly it can be worn to create different looks. Paur your dhoti with crop top, embroidered capes, short kurtas, long kurtas and jackets. If you want to take your ethnic game to the next level, then dhoti saree is perfect style for you. Take inspiration from Sonam Kapoor on this one.
Short jackets are so chic that they can be worn variably which will allow you to use the same piece of clothing for different looks. You can pair jackets with shararas, palazzos, lehengas, dhoti and even cigarette pants for mesmerising looks. It is one of hottest trends of Indian clothing in Sydney and if you need a more ethereal look, then you can opt for long jackets with cigarettes pants and lehengas.
5. Side slit anarkali kurtas
If even after reading about 4 cool wedding ready styles your heart is stuck at anarkalis, then you are in for a treat. You can opt for long heavy floor length kurtas but with a side slit. Wear them with cigarette pants, flowy palazzos or detailed pants for a stunning look.
6. Long kurtas and skirt
Take inspiration from Kareena Kapoor on this one, and you will absolutely want to dorn this style on the next wedding you are about to attend. Opt for a heavy material like brochette for a stunning look. The best way to keep it minimal yet glamorous is by opting for a cloth piece which is well embroidered or has a heavy pattern so you don’t have to work much on the kurta style. This style will make you look surreal for sure, if done right.
It’s time to say bye-bye to the anarkalis for good, and say hello to these gorgeous styles which are tempting, intriguing and will help you stand out of the crowd like a true fashionista.
