The wintry days are back, and along with it, the wedding season. The dip in temperatures is making us cover ourselves up a little more, but how can we layer up in woollens when we have to attend wedding ceremonies and parties?
Trust us, we are not some Bollywood heroine dancing away to glory in vibrant chiffon sarees and amid snow-clad mountains and lakes. We do feel cold and need heavier suits to feel cosy during winter occasions.
But yes, we agree that we do not want to look or feel shabby. Can’t we just feel warm yet look gorgeous? Yes, obviously we can. To help us, we have an array of Anarkali Suits, Palazzo suits, Sharara Suits, and other types of Salwar Suits. Layered, made with thick fabrics will keep us warm during wintry evenings and nights. Also, the wide-legged palazzos and shararas allow you to wear thermal pants underneath, which would provide you extra warmth. And you also have the choice of replacing your usual dupatta with a pashmina shawl. Let’s see what else can we do to keep us warm in Indian outfits to winter weddings.
Ideas to Beat the Chill During Winter Weddings in Indian Outfits
Light up the gloomy morning in sharara suits in vibrant shades. You can also go for printed, full-sleeved georgette Anarkali suits. Dense cotton outfits, viscose, or pashmina suits can also be options for you. If you want to stick to suits, you can also go for velvet Salwar Kameez or Anarkali suits.
Black is charming, sophisticated, and sexy in itself, and we cannot forget is that black traps heat thus outfits in black will keep us warm. A simple and effective theory. Black outfits are perfect for the cold evenings and nights, especially if you are choosing Anarkali Suits. Full-sleeved and layered, they would just make you hot, happening, and are suitable for occasions in December or January.
Layering is in Trend
The winters call for the perfect time to sport shrugs and jackets and are a cool option for layering. Pair ethnic brocade or velvet, long or short jackets with your suits or lehenga cholis, or even sarees. This will not only amp up your whole look but also keep you warm. If you prefer a look that is not usual, then too, a jacket-style suit helps in bringing a break in a monotonous look.
Length Matters in Winters
During the chilly months, the more you cover yourself up, the better. We always vote for the heavy, full-sleeved, floor-touching Anarkali Suits for Winter occasions, especially for weddings. You would surely fall in love with these flared suits that are tapered at the waist and flowy below. Pick one in a nice, dark shade like black, wine, dark red, silver for a cocktail or engagement ceremony or a reception party.
Most of us are fans of designer necklines and deep cuts, but that may get a little difficult to deal with in the chilly weather. For winter, you can get yourself a salwar kameez with a fancy, designer collar. A monotone, collared suit looks so glamourous, so smart, and keeps you warm indeed.
Yellows and greens are for spring, oranges and pinks for the monsoons and blues are for the winters. Be it the darker shades of blue or the minty shades, blue works fabulously on your attire in the winter. It is great to see yourself at par with the natural icy blue palette.
Those who say that winters are not the season to dress up vibrantly, it’s grim, dark and you need to cover yourself up aren’t saying the truth at all. Just imagine, you can dress up in the heaviest of suits and lehengas, keep your hair open, do makeup, and even after dancing your hearts out, the makeup would not be smudged, the hair won’t feel greasy. That’s what we all want secretly, isn’t it?
