Stir up luxe fashionable heat in style at your upcoming winter destination wedding
“So what do I wear to a winter destination wedding?”, you ask! We have styles for you to bask in, flaunt and to make heads turn as you walk into the ceremony to wish the doting couple, meet and greet with the elders and yet stay stylishly warm. Take a very good look at the chicest ensembles we have, which would be reason enough for you to rush to the karigar and get one of the luxe numbers stitched. Ready or not, we are ready to present the best of winter wedding chic ensembles for you to flaunt a diva-ish style with!
1. A Black embroidered wool crepe A-line dress: Gone are the days when we were told not to wear any shade of black at a wedding reception, since it was thought to bring about bad luck for the doting couple sitting at the mandap. Besties and bridesmaids (some brides too) these days daringly wear black or shades of it at winter weddings, since the hue helps absorb and contain the warmth, and also helps streamline a little slimness to the overall look as well. A black embroidered wool crepe A-line dress, with floral touches and a vibrant shawl or a dupatta for cover, helps keep warm and brings about a chic look too. Minimal makeup for the eyes and the lips should be done, while the blush used should be in sync with the floral hues on the dress. Heels are a must to accentuate the look, and a sleek chignon or a topknot would be the best hairdo to wear.
2. Kathakali prints to keep you warm: Kathakali prints help enhance the garment, and when embossed on a long stitched-saree made from high-quality silk and velvet, keep the body warm at a winter wedding too. Quite a minimalistic look, very sexy and regal to define as well, the hues of black, gold and silver calls for a luxe affair with the garment, and the structured ensemble or the piece with touches of white cutouts adds more drama and thrill to the garment. Hairdo to flaunt with the look would be a sleek high bun and minimal hair accessories or a passa to hang by the side. Metallic shades for the eyes and deep bronzer to contour the cheek is advised.
3. A touch of all things vintage: Trust ace designer and the maestro haute couture man, Sabyasachi to stun brides-to-be or bridesmaids for that matter with his one-of-a-kind creations and masterpieces. The Vintage duck egg blue floral and pink jacket with a flowy lehenga skirt in matte tones, not only keeps the warmth intact but brings sophistication and elegance in one piece. We particularly like the minimalistic yet haute look, the subtle hints of bronzer on the cheeks and the cute blingy tote bag for company. Heels or pumps are a must to wear, which would bring about the illusion of height.
4. Pant styled wedding suits: If you would like to make heads turn and yet not want to steal the thunder from the couple at the mandap, you could dress up in a chiffon pant style suit for the reception party. The pink shaded chiffon pant style suit here is an awesome number to flaunt, with a mid cut right up to the waist and leggings in chic prints to showcase. For sure this is a dramatic number with resham work and semi-precious stones embedded for the evening affair to flaunt at. You could wear the bouffant popped up hair left loose, with a statement wristlet and a long chain with this ensemble- minimal makeup with focus on the blush is important and dark eyes too.
5. Cotton and satin wedding salwaar kameez: Machine embroidered and in gold, the satin-cotton wedding salwaar kameez embellished with lace and net is a haute number to flaunt at the winter wedding. What particularly captures the eyes with this ensemble is the neatly strewn around embroidered ethnic motifs, and the matte green dupatta, and pants with the gold lining. Wear the look with your hair left neatly tied into a low sleek bun, embellished with maang tikkas or a passa, chunky chandelier earrings and minimal bronzer for the cheeks with glossy lips and smokey eyes. Mojaris would be the best footwear to complete the look with, but you could opt for heels and pumps too!
