10 Prettiest Bridal Lehengas of 2017

All this while, I thought that weddings were restricted to only the winter season. With all my friends and cousins getting married, I have realized that there is no such particular season.  Weddings are fun but also stressful when it comes to outfit ideas for every single person.  From the person who’s getting married to the person who is attending it, everyone. This post is about bridal wear that’s trending this year. Mostly the ones that I think is different and should be attempted.

The typical outfit that a bride wears for her wedding is always a red palette sari or lehenga! So keeping that in mind I have listed out 10 trendy bridal-wear outfit ideas. I am a person who likes to try something that’s unique and not a very traditional. If you are someone like me, you will totally love these.

Starting with colors – There are such vibrant colors that we lose out on when we stick to the cultural colors like red and green. What if we tried these modernist bridal wear for the weddings? There are so many things you could do differently with either your dupatta, sari or your lehenga! You get married once right, make it an extraordinary one!! I understand that there is something ethereal about the color red, but we are all for offbeat colors too. Aren’t we?

Ditch the red and go for this bright pink. This graceful lehenga has a double layer that makes it look like a heavy one. The grandeur of this design is magnificent.

If you are ready to change the color palette of your bridal wear then this is just the one you should try. The teal dupatta and fluorescent green are not only one of a kind but idiosyncratic. Some of you might find the reds and the greens very coruscating, hence for those who don’t favor loud color, this is the perfect one!

The third outfit is a combination of an elegant kurta and green designer lehenga. Like I said, anything that’s remarkable always catches my eye. The green and the gold makes it perfect for a bridal wear outfit idea.

If you are an unpretentious person who likes the minimal design and doesn’t get excited by typical ornamented lehengas and saris, then this one is for you! This fusion is basic yet elegant and rich.

The following outfits are the conventional red and blue lehenga with a slight twist in the design to make it a bit contemporary. Sari’s are predominant in southern India when it comes to wedding and bridal wear. There are different ways in which you can drape your sari, unlike the habitual manner. Saris are also Indian women’s favorite outfit, while both sari’s and bridal lehenga have had spectacular variations this year. There are various methods in which you can style a sari like a lehenga.

 

 

 

Gold and red are never out of fashion. The color of bridal wear depends on the preferences of the bride. Red and green are presumed as a pre-eminent combination. Tradition and culture miraculously change the way you look at colors. In India, red is considered as a propitious color and that’s why bridal wear is usually red, pink, maroon etc.

Which one is your favorite? Let me know in the comment section below!

The Pink Rush

There was a time when I would run away from anything that’s slightly sheer. Life is all about experimenting and the more experiments you do the better. I have been in love with sheer since The Sheer Story. This is my second sheer top that I bought online. This peek-a-boo trend aka sheer trend is killing it this season. From saris to boots, brands have come out with various sheer fashion ideas this season. Sheer garments have taken over this summer.  Sheer is not just about the see through vibe but it personifies fun and sexy both together. It’s impossible to avoid sheer this season. Like they say “It’s all about taking the risky route”.

There are so many ways in which you can style this beautiful pink mesh top. Starting with wide leg pants if you are the 80’s baby or an embroidered lacy short. You can layer it and head out for a fashionable evening. It’s casual and yet so refined. How to wear the sheer is also very important because one wrong step and it will turn into a disaster. There is a thin thread between flattering and shocking! Wear them to flatter and not to shock everyone around you.

If you are not comfortable with transparent ones and still want to try the sheer trend, go for the translucent ones with some work on it. The major pointer that you have to remember is that you need to keep it simple and classy. The moment you overdo sheer it just turns into something crappy and disapproving.

“If you were born to do justice to the unconventional, then abandon the subtle sheers and opt for a bolder look.”

I just realized that I am wearing forever21 from head to toe. Lol!

The Vitamin Sea Vibe

This was from my birthday trip to Karwar. I know I am late in posting this but blame it on the crazy work I had for a change. If you are a blogger and if you are traveling to a serene location for a holiday or otherwise, the first thing that comes to your mind is outfit ideas or posts. That is what happened during my trip to Karwar. I also spoke about my trip in my earlier post – On The Hunt for Colours.

The sea can cure anything. There is something about the salt water that always brings happiness. I am a hard core water lover and I am sure you would have understood that by now. The moment the water touches my feet, an eccentric power takes over my body. That feeling makes me assume that I can easily take over the world. The sea helps me get back to me. I am the happiest when I am surrounded by the sea.

Coming to the post – The first thing that comes to your mind when you head to a sea shore is either flowy clothes or comfortable casual ones. The humidity sometimes hits you hard and might worsen your mood if you don’t wear the right outfit. I have lived in Calcutta and was accustomed to the climate. While I was working in Calcutta, kurtas were the best option because of the climate. I had a field job and would have been exhausting to work in the city in formal wear. Hence, I knew what to carry with me while traveling to humid places. On my trip to Karwar, I made sure I packed few flowy outfits to be comfortable in and yet fashionable. This was one of them. I have two colors of the same skirt by the way! If I really like something, I get different colors of the same style. Call me crazy! *wink* *wink*

I can’t explain how comfortable this skirt is! That reminds me, I have styled this skirt in three different ways. Let me know if you would want me to do a post on that. Remember the time when I went crazy during the sale period, this top was from that sale. With the world going crazy with embroidery, I had to get my hands on one. The skirt glides. therefore it was easy for me to tie it like a dhoti.

Tunic Praxis feat. Calae

There was a time in college when my wardrobe was only filled with Kurtas and tunics. Fabindia was my second home then. I have seen this brand change drastically in all these years. That was the time when tunic and cotton kurtas were affordable in FabIndia but now a simple pattern kurta is not less than some obnoxious price. I am disheartened to see this change because I was a loyal customer. With loads of textiles available in the city at a throwaway price, it’s easy to get it stitched than buying the same style from a store. If you are a lazy person, that option will never work out. Going all the way to the small shops to get the right textile or material and then go to the tailor sounds like a day long work to start with. Trust me, I have started doing that after realising how expensive brands around me have become and it’s satisfying.

Bangalore has this weird dress code rule in some colleges i.e. western outfits are not allowed. That resulted in ample amount of kurtas and tunics. That was the only time I wore them too and later after graduating I rarely bought any. This Stacey Hinkhouse Tunic Top was sent to me by Calae on their completion of one year and celebrating curvy women around the world. Calae is a one stop shop for curvy women.

I went a little crazy with this tunic and tried wrapping a scarf around my head which obviously turned out crazier than I thought it would. The idea behind this blog was to pair this tunic with a patiala for a “Naradmuni” look. Tunics are the most comfortable travel outfit. This hi-low tunic top has a shorter front and a longer back.

How would you style a tunic other than the conventional way?
