Vision In White – White Colour Indian Outfits

White is easily one of the least loved colours when it comes to Indian fashion thanks to the superstitions and myths associated with the colour.

But if you ask us, we gotta tell you, we love white in Indian wear! White Indian outfits often look ethereal and so dream like!

We rounded up 5 white Indian outfit looks that the ladies from Bollywood pulled off beautifully!

Kareena Kapoor In A Floor Length Anarkali

She looks like royalty, doesn’t she? Loving the elegant white anarkali!

Anushka Sharma In White & Gold Lehenga

We love the fact that the choli is contemporary, almost like a crop top, and the lehenga and dupatta are traditionally ethnic. Gives an edge to the lehenga.

AICW ’15 – Inspiration For Sister/Best Friend Of The Bride/Groom

When you are a sister or best friend of the bride or groom, there is no better thing for the wedding wardrobe because you literally have the pass to be the next best dressed after the bride herself!

If you want to go for a more traditional silhouette, but still want to play up on the drama, here’s how to do it! You can either play up with colours and a fabric heavy lehengas, or lehengas which have work done on them, but smartly and minimally.

The Heroine Collection and Manish Malhotra

if you do want to go all out, we recommend keeping the colour non bridal and adding a touch of non-traditionalness to the outfit, like Manish Malhotra does with the lehenga below.

But if you really don’t want the bling, but still want to look wedding-worthy, Manish Malhotra shows us how, again! The flare of the skirt below more than makes up for the minimal work on it.

The wedding is also the perfect time to experiment with new trends and silhouettes and the current favourite is the cape!

Sabyasachi and Rahul Mishra

Crop tops are also quite the rage and designers have been pairing them with slimmer lehengas. Super chic vibes.

Manish Malhotra and Varun Bahl

And last but not the least, you know those floor length anarkalis and jacket lehengas always have your back!

LFW’15 Inspiraton – Summer Wedding – Sangeet & Wedding Outfits For The Sister Of The Bride

Moving on to sangeet and the wedding, here is some solid inspiration for the sister/best friend of the bride.

We’re starting with a floral lehenga from Sabyasachi’s latest collection. Love it!

Sabyasachi wasn’t the only one who brought on his floral game. Arpita Mehta brought it on too.

Anushree Reddy’s lehengas are always drool worthy! They yellow one is quite wedding worthy while the pink lehenga would be perfect for a sangeet.

If your family is chilled out, you can definitely consider being a vision in white with these three pretty white lehengas by Anamika Khanna, Anushree Reddy & Payal Singhal respectively.

Manish Malhotra is a designer who often goes big on bling, but he keeps things subtle in the lehenga below. However, the dreamy addition of net over the yellow fabric still ensures a “wedding worthy” feeling.

And our last outfit goes out to the sisters and friends who prefer anarkalis over lehengas. Crushing on this floral anarkali by Soumitra Marg.

Light Pink & Blue – Inspiration for Summer 2015

Pink and blue is a classic combination of sorts. Over the years, various shades from both, Team Pink and Team Blue have gotten together to produce beautiful results.

So we take a look at this classic combination with lighter shades of both colours and draw some inspiration for the incoming summer.

We start off with this gorgeous anarkali lehenga with sorbet shades of blue and pink. Such yummy colours!

Next, we came across a picture that isn’t even a complete outfit picture, but the colours were enough to get us hooked.

How perfect is the lehenga below for the summer bride to wear on her sangeet night? Or the bride/groom’s sister or best friend during the wedding itself. Perfect dose of bling!

Kareena Kapoor In Drool Worthy Lehengas

Recently, photos of Kareena Kapoor shooting an ad campaign were out on Twitter. But our eyes went straight to her outfits. What gorgeous lehengas.

This pink choli, green-blue lehenga with a gorgeous duppatta stole our hearts at the first sight.

Image

There was also a colourful pink and blue-purple lehenga. So perfect to wear in the afternoons.

Image

And then there was a golden lehenga. At a firsts sight, it may look like she’s wearing pants with some flowy material around but that’s just the way the lehenga is.

Does anybody else suddenly feel like becoming a model for a jewellery brand, or is it just us?

Deepika Padukone – Star Screen Awards 2014 Lehengas

At the Star Screen Awards this year, Deepika performed wearing two super pretty lehengas, one pink and one white. Both were oh-so-lovely to wear while dancing that they’d actually make the perfect lehengas for any Sangeet function.

We love these! Do you?

Main Tera Hero – Leading Ladies’ Lehengas

If you have watched promos of David Dhawan’s soon to be released Main Tera Hero, you probably have seen a few scenes where both the leading ladies, Nargis and Illeana are wearing pretty lehengas.

Of course it goes by too fast in the promos, so we bring them to you here.

Image

On a closer look, Illeana seems to be wearing a brocade lehenga and Nargis seems to be wearing a gotta pati work lehenga.

Image

Which lehenga do you guys prefer? We quite like both, but would’ve really preferred a bigger flare on Illeana’s lehenga. While it looks great on her, it wouldn’t look good on most Indian women as we tend to have bigger hips. Plus bigger flares are always better.

Kareena Kapoor In Floral Sabyasachi Jacket Lehenga

Understaded bling, balanced by a dramatic flare, Kareena looks regal in this Sabysachi floral jacket lehenga.

Image

Would be quite perfect for the sister or best friend of the bride / groom. Dramatic without the bling would help them stand out as a close relative / friend of the bride / groom, without over-shining the bride. 

A soon-to-be bride can even consider this for a cocktail function.

We are liking!
