Walk down the aisle in style

Walk down the aisle in style

This season is all about being edgy and glamorous - celebrating the individuality of style through a multitude of trends. Since the wedding season is in full swing, there is a huge demand for Indian outfits.  

The concept 'less is more' is making a comeback this season and now  it is all about interesting silhouettes. Heavy traditional ensembles  are out and easy silhouettes are taking  its  place.

Fashion is moving towards more comfortable outfits like statement pieces where the look of the outfit is kept minimal  with light embroidery. Layering is another option that people look for, for different occasions.  

Fashionistas are moving away from the traditional colour palette  and cuts to experimental colours like rustic shades of red, pink and blue and modern easy outfits. Having said that, lehngas will always remain a favourite but  the focus is shifting from heavily embellished garments to minimal and comfortable ones. Black, white and red and other such classic colour combinations are out of style now. And unusual colour combinations are all set to grab people's attention.

Saris can never go out of  fashion. And this wedding season too, it is making it's way to becoming the number one on the trend chart. Pre-draped  saris is an 'in-thing' now. It is a perfect outfit for the modern Indian woman, who has a tough time draping the nine-yard  piece. It is easy-to-wear and looks extremely chic.

Capes are still dominant this season. Embellished, sheer embroidered capes are one of the hottest trends. They can vary in shapes and lengths and one can team it up with lehengas, drape skirts or long dresses.  

Jackets too are catching the eye of fashionistas for they are trendy and give a rough yet stylish touch to one's look. Embroidered floor-length or waistline jackets can be teamed with Indian outfits like lehengas, saris and gowns, especially if you don't want to carry a dupatta. Jackets are also a great way to revamp an old outfit.

Long kurtas are back. You can team them with palazzos, flared pants or a long skirt, making it a perfect outfit for wedding functions or casual parties. Anarkalis are also trending.

Velvet is another option that people can look forward to this wedding season. From jackets and dresses   to saris and lehengas, nothing says royal more than a velvet  outfit. Velvet lehengas with high waisted embroidered pants and capes are a completely new silhouette which will let you make a statement.

Another big trend  are belts. Embroidered belts can add a lot of bling  if teamed with draped tops, kurtas or any simple outfit. You can add fringes and tassels to make it look more dressy. Fringes and tassels are another favourite  this season; they can add dimension and texture to a plain outfit. Another trend, my favourite one at that, is asymmetrical layering. It adds a fun element to a look without making it seem too heavy and overdone.
