As Indians, we’re most excited when someone in the family is getting married. We spend hours taking screenshots of what we think is the perfect outfit, and then set out to find the perfect accessories to go with it. And it would probably be exhausting if we didn’t love it so much.
Since I’m always trying to put a boho twist to my everyday clothes, I thought, why not to wedding outfits as well?
In the first part of this series, I’ll show you how I put a colourful, gypsy twist to the classic red lehenga.
I picked a bright red lehenga from Param Sahib Clothing for this look. The star of this lehenga was the peplum style top. The top had bits off mirror detailing all over – on the neckline, the belt and the cuffs. At the centre of all the little mirrors, sequins and patterns was a coloured motif of a tiger. And the mirror belt right below it perfectly emphasized the waist, and completed the silhouette of the top. Below this structured silhouette was the flowy, net material which was kept simple with sequined detailing. But my favourite part of the entire outfit were the sleeves! The full length sleeves had random, colourful patterns all over, and all the randomness completely brought the look together.
For accessories, I went with chunky, golden jhumkas and a heavy, golden choker, both from Apala by Sumit. They had muted bits of red, green and silver all over them, and I thougt were just meant for the outfit. Since the lehenga was colourful, I wanted to balance the look with my accessories, and these were perfect. The accessories didn’t get overwhelmed by the extravagance of the dress, but completed the look. Another quirky little accessory that was added to the lehenga was bits of feather on the side which perfectly completed the gypsy look that I was going for!
And finally make up! I kept it minimal and neutral and went with a black smoky eye and nude lips.
And after that?! I went on to pose in all the typical Bollywood styles, because that’s why we wear lehengas, right?!
