Tap into the past to seek inspiration, as you zero-in on your look for pre wedding occassons.
It’s the time of the year again when the air is filled with roka, mehandi, ladies sangeet functions and the winter chill is combated with a cosy, ceremonial bonfire. And, dressing up in all the colours of the impending spring just adds to all the ceremonies!
These functions are commemorated before any wedding ceremony especially in the winters and as you celebrate in style there, go all-out traditional. From not shying away from hair extensions for the fun of twirling them up in a modern bedecked braid, to indulging in a berry dipped beauty palette – plan your look. For your wardobe, be inspired by the traditional art of bagh or phulkari embroidery which will instantly bring in a flavour of colourful joie de vivre. While we love the off store varieties of the beautiful thread play, this time change things up by adding one surprise element that will light up your look. From a beautiful stole embedded with the embroidery, to an oversize envelope clutch that includes the traditonal colour-filled work, you can add these elements to bring on some surprise. So fill your palette with sweets and palette with balmy colours, bidding farewell to the winter!
The Hues of a Tradition
As many ceremonies takes place based on different different traditions and culture, there can be nothing prettier than the colours of your outfit playing of the glow of traditional colour palette. Pick bright scarlets or shades of vermillion when going for a bagh-embroidered salwar kameez or phulkari dupatta. Rather than a paranda, twirl a gota-fuced lace or bauble-ended hair twirls.
Some love it, while others despise the idea of coordinating your look with your better half. But what’s the harm in looking as stylish as each other, as you step out to celebrate pre wedding ceremonies? Don’t go matchy in terms of colours, but create harmony in terms of the details.
