Layers and long sleeves to rock this wedding season

The wedding season is on us. The last few months of the year is synonymous with festivities, shaadis and traditional events. Most prefer to get married during this season to make the most of winter — to avoid the tropical heat, the profuse sweating, and enjoy the designer outfits and flamboyant make-up. While slinky, strappy and sheer blouses will never go out of style in a place like Mumbai, where summer never really ends, November weddings do see a style adaptation.


Sartorial statements this season include long sleeves, layers, warm colours and cool fabrics. Here are a few tips you could follow to ace the bridal look... Layers of style Not too fond of the winter chill? Well, make sure that you choose outfits that are not just chic but also keep you snug.

Layering works like a dream in times like these and practical, functional clothing will always be in vogue, despite what couturiers and sartorial connoisseurs have to say. Long embroidered jackets over traditional saris, silk stoles on lehengas, heavy dupattas on anarkalis and stylish capes over old-fashioned wedding ensembles can not just make you look like you stepped out of a glossy fashion magazine, but will also keep you warm when you want to be.

Statement blouses Blouses play a pivotal role when it comes to deciding your look for the day and making a statement. With brides mostly opting for lehengas or saris, choosing the right blouse becomes important. The latest trend is long, full sleeves and these also bring in an elegance that is hard to miss. Do away with your tacky backless cholis and sheers and opt for sleeves that showcase embellishments and traditional embroidery. Warm colours and traditional silhouettes Bright, warm colours have the ability to perk up any cut or silhouette.

Nothing beats a traditional silhouette to make sure that you are the cynosure of all eyes. Anarkalis, lehenga-cholis when paired with striking warm stoles can add a touch of chic. Flaunt this during the sangeet or the cocktail parties too. Silks and velvets Velvets definitely are not new, but are big once again this season. When paired with the right fabrics and treated well, this fabric can really make a statement. Organic silks, handmade textiles, satins, brocades, lame and velvet are great during the wedding season, especially if you are looking for chic glamour. Steal it with the stole Stoles that are embellished and embroidered can bring in chutzpah to most outfits, if carried well. Traditional Indian wear cannot be complete without a stole or a dupatta. Thread work, intricate embroidery, hand-crafted designs on textiles will say a lot about your overall outfit.

Show off some elegant embroidery When we talk of bridal wear, we do not necessarily mean gaudy and over-the-top looks. Brides could opt for chic embroidery that has a lot of finesse.
