Get your wardrobe, “Wedding Season” ready!

Wedding season has kickstarted, and most of us end up having to attend back-to-back functions within the same circle. While brand new outfits for every function/wedding are absolutely great, they also leave a hole in your pocket and not to forget you barely ever end up wearing them again.

Year after year, after spending a fortune on these “wedding outfits” and collecting a few bags full with nowhere to wear, I started re-furbishing the separates.

The blouse, the lehenga, the dupatta, the kurta, everything can be separately paired with something slightly non-traditional, which would make for a great off-beat outfit. Having said that, along with the recycling and remixing, do not totally snub the temptation of picking at least one or two outfits from the running season.

I have picked a few of my favourite outfits this season; while some are full-fledged Indian traditional, others are great pieces that inspire me to mix and match and create my own unique ensembles, this wedding season.

Diya Mirza in Anamika Khanna inspires to create DIY, unique outfit for perhaps a cocktail/sangeet night. The outfit on Sonam Kapoor is so dainty and vintage, you ought to have something of the sort as a part of your “wedding season” wardrobe. In the end, is a full blown traditional red lehenga-choli which is a classic and will never get old.

Indian wear post isn’t complete without a Sabyasachi. However, considering the elaborate nature of his designs, its more suitable for the mother/sister of the bride.

Nikhil Thampi! The sound of it is exciting itself. I LOVE his designs, not only because they are so unique, but also because their silhouette is superbly flattering for the Indian body type. Definitely indulging in one of his outfits this wedding season.

Dhoti pants are not only restricted to men, and thanks to Anju Modi, we know how to make this androgynous trend sizzle!

If you are looking for an absolutely off-beat style, who better than Lisa Haydon in Monisha Jaisingh to inspire you. White knotted shirt with a leather lehenga, YES PLEASE!

Rohit Bal put up a fabulous show this season, his colours and designs were so refreshing, that its hard to not pick something from his collection or get something similar, custom made.

The undisputed crop-queen is definitely Payal Singhal. Crop-tops are my favourite in general and when paired with fun semi-traditional designs, they create magic!
