Dressing up for weddings can be a lot of sweat and work, even if it is not your own wedding. I realized this at a recent wedding in Goa,having all the makings of a typical Indian wedding with all its colours, shine, shimmer and the extravagant outfits. I ended up shedding a kilo (and I am not complaining!), all thanks to the dancing, running around and of course the weather! So if you have a wedding to attend this summer and at the same time want to make a style statement, here’s my pick of some of the most fashionable goodies from Tarun Tahiliani's recent collections.
For the many miscellaneous wedding functions: Chikan work with applique. A kaftan in breezy and easy with a fun accessory.
At Indian weddings you often find yourself attending miscellaneous functions like Chuda or Haldi ceremony. A kaftan in any colours ranging from white, pink to yellow or even black is great option when you need to dress conservative, understated and yet Indian. A pair of shades, some bright flats, a flower in your hair, a hint of colour on your cheeks and you are sorted.
For the Sangeet: White sari with large black belt from Spring Summer 2012.
The chiffon sari with mother of pearl embroidery is a classic. The obi belt would help keep the outfit in place as you set the dance floor on fire! You can blow dry your hair and if it gets sweaty, keep a hair clutch handy. Wear minimal make up. Lots of gold eye shadow and a dash of blush. Remember to use an eye pencil that does not smudge.
For the Wedding: Nude sari with Swarovski crystal work, Couture week, 2011
The colour of the sari is stunning and works very well with the Indian skin tone. It will make you look super fresh even if the Indian summer takes its toll! A smart tip avoid wearing heels. At a destination wedding flats always look nicer especially if you are suddenly whisked away on the beach!
