We bring to you essentials pieces for wedding trousseau that are sure to see you through!
Golden Choli & Blouse
A golden blouse and/or choli is a classic key piece in any Indian wardrobe. A perfect match to any and every colour, this piece is here to see you through multiple sarees and lehengas with uttmost ease.
Orange Palazzos & Duppatta Set
Palazzos are back and they are here to stay. The best part about palaazos is the incredible variety of tops you can wear them with – short kurta, long kurta, crop top, choli and even anarkalis! So stock up on a set and keep switching out the tops for a new look each time. And why orange you ask? It’s an incredibly versatile color and can be paired with pink, red, golden, white, yellow and many more colours!
Simple, Bright Pink Saree
Go all out on the colour for this one and pick a saree but make sure the work on the saree is minimal. A gorgeous border and a little work here and there should do. Pair it up with a yellow blouse for when you want to keep things simple, but eye catching. Choose a golden blouse to balance the bling for when the occasion calls for a little something more. Pick a beautiful white brocade blouse for a look that is neither too heavy, nor too light. With each blouse, the look of this one saree can be drastically different. This one is sure to be a straight up winner in your bridal trousseau.
White/Beige Anarkali Kurta
White and beige are neutral colours that match with every colour on the palette. For a new look each time, keep switching it up different coloured chudidar and duppattas. of course, for the times you want a look with understated elegance, stick to the same coloured churidar and duppatta.
Classic Benarasi Saree In A Traditional Colour
Royal? Check! Timeless? Check! Drop dead gorgeous? Hell yes, check! A classic Benarasi saree just never fails. However, make sure you pick a saree that is in a traditional color like red, pink, beige, orange, etc. Picking up the saree in an “in trend” colour like powder blue or mint green, may render it out of style in a few years when everyone has overdosed on that particular colour.
Simple Silk Lehenga With A Big Golden Border
Silk never goes out of style and that should be enough for you to include it in your bridal trousseau. And with no work on this lehenga except for a gorgeous golden border, this is going to be a classic lehenga you can wear for years. For occasions that are on the simpler side, keep the jewellery minimal. For dressier evenings, style it up with a whole lot of jewellery. Want to switch over to a modern style? Trade the choli and duppata out for a crop top and you’ll have yourself a contemporary, as well as a totally new look.
Brocade Kurta In A Versatile Colour
A kurta is a base for many styles. You can wear a churidar, a patiala salwaar, a palazzo, sharara or a lehenga skirt underneath. And when you opt for a versatile colour, you have plenty of complimentary colours at your disposal. So if you choose a classic pink short kurta, pair it up an orange palazzo, a white patiala salwaar or a beige lehenga for a different look each time.
