Summers in India can be a little brutal. It does not mean that you cannot step up your fashion game. The latter holds especially true when you are invited to a wedding during the summer months. While you might have to forgo heavily embellished lehenga or velvet suits, you are still left with a wide array of ensemble options. Summer is also the only time you can experiment with non-traditional ethnic fabrics such as organza, crepe, and georgette.
As you look forward to attending a summer wedding, here are some outfits that will help you raise the temperature at the venue.
The beauty of white attire remains unmatched. Elegant and timeless,it is versatile and can easily be paired with various accessories and colours. As an absolute standalone, white can come on too strong, and therefore it needs to be offset by other colours. The Dua Lehenga from ace designer Anita Dongre’s collection is a great pick for when you want to rock a white ensemble. The sustainable fibres offer a flowy silhouette to the lehenga, and the colourful prints are perfect for a hot summer day. You can complete this look by adorning a pair of chandbalis and wearing your hair up.
Pastel hues rule the summer months for all the right reasons. These subtle shades have an airy and light feeling, which translates beautifully into ethnic wear. If you are looking for an effortless yet chic look as you attend a friend’s wedding this summer, then this Alyssa Saree in blush shade is an amazing option. Offset by subtle floral embroidery, this saree is great for either functions or the wedding ceremony itself.
Shades of green are synonymous to springtime and freshness. It is, therefore, a great colour choice for a summer wedding, especially in the sweltering heat of India. If you want to add this hue to your ethnic closet subtly, then this Nihira Anarkali Set is the way to go. Made out of sustainable fibres, this suit set in the lime shade has a plunging sweetheart neckline and subtle embroidery. Its functionality is enhanced by the pockets in its silhouette, and you can complete the look with your favourite pair of gold jhumkas.
If bright colours are your jam, then adding darker shades of blue to your wardrobe would be a great idea. The colour is especially great for night time, and you can opt for either lehengas, suits or shararas in this colour. This stunning asymmetrical skirt and crop top set is an equally ideal pick. Featuring several tones of blue, the set has a contemporary look and can be paired with either silver or gold jewellery.
Mix And Match
If the summer wedding you have been invited to is on the beachside, then wearing a mix and match of colours won’t be far from the perfect outfit. You can also opt for modern outfits such as gowns for women instead of the usual lehengas and sarees. This Amanee Gown created by Anita Dongre is one such option which is both stylish and functional. The gown is made out of georgette fabric and has a colourful patchwork pattern. Complete this look with some gorgeous contemporary earrings and bracelets.
Summer weddings and floral prints go hand-in-hand. If you want to make a statement, you can opt for the floral trend by adorning this Magic Magpies Lehenga in orange. Subtle floral prints of Magpies and forests offset the bright orange. The ensemble is made out of sustainable fibres and pockets so that you can carry your trinkets around effortlessly.
