Indian wedding cocktail parties are often glamorous and stylish events, and choosing the right outfit is crucial to making a lasting impression. Here are some styling tips for the bride herself, sisters, mother, friends, and close relatives of the bride to rock the cocktail look and etch it in golden ink on the times to come.
Tips To Ace The Cocktail Look:
1. Sarees and Lehengas:
Fusion is the way to go for cocktail parties. You want to keep it traditional while a hint of Western is called for. Especially for the bride. Opt for lightweight sarees that allow you your first dance to glory. If wearing saree explore the saree with embroidered pants look that is breaking the net. Lehengas with modern cuts and embellishments are a good option too. Find one in sequins, lace, and embroidery to add a touch of elegant glamour. Consider contemporary blouse designs for a trendy look. Corset blouses/ tops are still creating waves. Ride the tide!
2. Anarkali or Gown:
Long Anarkali suits or gowns in rich fabrics like silk, velvet, or georgette are great choices. Experiment with different necklines and sleeve patterns. Adding bead tassels is the newest thing while pairing them with long jackets and shrugs takes the look a level up.
These are amazingly transformative. Pep up your outfit with uber-cool capes, all-blingy head-caps, body chains, unique headbands, brooches, watches, collars, etc. Belts are yet another way to add panache to your style. We root for the head caps and capes for the sassy bride effect.
4. Fusion Wear:
Experiment with fusion wear like Indo-western dresses or crop top-skirt combinations. Mix traditional fabrics with modern silhouettes for a unique look. With minimalistic jewelry, these create Insta-ready looks.
Statement jewelry such as chandelier earrings, jhumkas, or a maang tikka can elevate your look. So does a choker neckpiece in Kundan or a classy diamond-studded one. Consider a stylish clutch to create a hi-fashion statement.
Heels or embellished flats work well with Indian wedding cocktail party outfits. That’s where comfort marries functionality. Pop-up colors or the ones in complete contrast to the dress are for the adventurous ones. Choose footwear that complements the color and style of your dress. Embroidered sneakers are so in for the bride seeking comfort through the mingling sessions. Sisters and friends of brides this trend is for you too for all the dancing you’d be doing.
