Winters are for Wedding Season, but we have to serve it all with Ethnics in Style. We love to wear our gorgeous ethnics but the challenge begins as the winters comes along with the Wedding Season. The chilly winter makes it hard for us to choose from those elegant Sarees & Lehengas in our wardrobe to wear at an occasion comfortably without feeling blue. But no worries as there is always some hacks and tricks to style yourself in your favorite Ethnic wear & take a chill pill down your fashion road to every occasion this Winter.
1. CHOOSE YOUR SLEEVES WISELY
Lehengas with Full sleeve cholis is quite in Trend. Also wearing a full sleeves or three-quarter Anarkalis or blouses with sarees makes you look all elegant and royal at the same time. You can explore with a variety of Indian Embroidered fabrics, also some ancient techniques like Chikankari, Pathworks, Kashmiri weaves, kutch mirrorwork,etc. Accessorize them well with heavy jewelry & a belt to look all fancy & fashionable.
2. THE TRENDS OF JACKETS
If you have been following all the latest designers & celebrities, you must have come across this trend of Jacket. Be it long or short, but being in ethnic embroideries & amazing fabrics makes it stand out and also fulfills your purpose of saving you from the cold. Some lehengas also come with a jacket which are the best buy for the winters. Pairing them up with flared palazzo pants & a cropped top also gives an indo-western look to carry at a ceremony.
3. CARDIGANS & PULLOVERS
Ever tried wearing a saree with a cropped cardigan? If not yet, do it now and ditch a normal blouse for it. It’s stylish, contemporary & makes you stand out. And by cardigans I don’t only mean a black, white or beige one. You can experiment with cuts, fits & patterns and even complementary or contrasting colors of the saree that you are wearing. It can also be a pull-over with a turtle-neck or a round neck. Do not forget to add on some statement neck piece or even a leather or studded belt if you want. Clutches & fanny packs also add a spark to the look.
4. REPLACE A DUPATTA WITH A SHAWL
Shawls have not gone out of fashion, but is now coming into fashion. And they are no more the boring single-colored ones. Now designers work on shawls with ethnic designs & embroidery with different types of threadworks & patchworks from all around India, also come in dual side patterns making it a statement piece by itself. Replace your dupattas with this one statement piece & you are good to go for the evening. You can even use this as an add-on to your saree look to add more definition.
5. TRENCH IS A TREND
The Bollywood stars in the tinsel town are rocking their saree looks with a Trench Coat. Take a look at Deepika Padukone & Sonam Kapoor for reference. A trench coat is such a piece that every person wants to own. And when you are wearing it with a saree, nothing can actually go wrong. And in case a trench coat is not an option for you, you can always achieve a chic look with a leather jacket or a blazer, be it closed at the waist or just nicely placed over the shoulders.
6. LEGGINGS ARE IN
In case you are the one to get cold feet i.e. I mean get cold over your legs all the time, you will thank me later to tell you that you can always wear a leggings under your saree or a lehenga. Just make sure it is of the same color as your attire so it’s not outstanding as such, but in case you are ready to flaunt it with a fancy drape, you can go for shiny options in black, gold or silver.
7. WARMER THE FABRIC THE BETTER
In case you are buying something new or getting something custom made, you can choose from warmer fabrics like a velvet, or brocade or raw silk which is a thicker silk in comparison. Truly avoid nets, and in case you want something more heavy, go for embroideries done on the same. Because same old Indian textile techniques are what is all coming back to fashion now a days.
Other than this all women always have options to go for heavier ethnic wears with closed necks or elaborated sleeves, which will definitely make you feel hotter in this cold season.
But in case you are more ready to experiment with your looks all the time and want to look one of a kind in every occasion you step in, this blog will be your best friend throughout this wedding season and even the ones coming further.
So enjoy your beauty & happiness, where you chill but not get a chill!
