Winter is back! Temperatures have dipped, clearly making it mandatory for us to cover up a little extra. However, dolling up in Indian ethnic outfits, wedding sarees, and layering with woolens to beat the winter cold does not go together.
We are not those fantasy-Hindi-film heroines, with the Herculean ability to bear Alpine winds in sheer chiffon sarees and sleeveless blouses. Sadly, neither are we superhuman, nor are primping and preening – and looking divine – our only jobs! We need those full sleeves and heavier fabrics, silk suits, and pashmina shawls to protect ourselves.
Yet, at the end of it all, we still wish to look stylish and beautiful. How do we do that? Well, the suits, in their endless array of Salwar Suits, Churidar Suits, Palazzo Suits, and more – come to our rescue, making for a perfect cover-up – that’s every bit magnificent and form-flattering. No, we are not talking of light, sleeveless, sheer, or flimsy summer dresses! We mean gorgeous suit ensembles, trendy Indo-western suits, and stunning layered Anarkalis – which will let you handle chilly evenings and days like a pro!
Here, take a look – stunning Indian suits, which will hold you in good stead for an extended work evening, traditional get-togethers, pre-Christmas dinners, December January weddings, and more
Salwar Suit Ideas for Winter Weddings
1. The Cotton Make
Cotton is your all-season wardrobe ally and will hold you in good stead even in winters. Lehenga suits, sharara suits, and palazzo suits in dense cotton weave or with multiple layers are insulating and modish options. Choose the ones crafted in bright colors or multi-hued embroidery to brighten up a gloomy winter morning festivity. The right attire makes it easier to stay high on energy even while mercury levels drop!
2. Black Beauty
Nothing beats the composite of versatility, sophistication, and charm that black offers. It is a swish color meant for all sorts of occasions and, winters give you the perfect enigmatic sky to flaunt this classic with umpteen choices in black salwar suits. You may even consider soaking under the sun, and black floor-length Anarkali suits are perfect for your happy sunlight moments during the social and festive hour. So while black suits are an ever yes for after dusk outings, freezing days make them suitable even for the day- for pre-wedding get-togethers and trend-alert kitty parties too!
3. Love for Layers
Winter is the perfect season to sport the trend of jackets and shrugs, which have become cool layering options for suits and even lehenga cholis and sarees. Invest in a heavy brocade jacket or one crafted in velvet with 3D embellishments to give your wedding wardrobe an imperial uplift. A jacket suit or an indo-western jacket lehenga suit are apt choices if you prefer a ready and well-coordinated look.
4. Length Matters
We vote for maxi-length silhouettes as the first choice for finalizing your wedding looks this winter. Floor-length anarkali suits, anarkali gowns, and elaborate lehenga suits are styles that assure warmth while maintaining the grandeur element that is essential for Indian weddings. And you’ll love these lengthy flared suits that fit well on the waist- if you want to look slimmer and taller. Pick one in black or deep jewel tones for a ring ceremony, cocktail party, or Indian wedding reception.
5. Ideal Collar
Following the trend of wearing suits having high collars and closed necklines can give you double benefits this season; these cozy necklines are a stylish solution to beat the freeze. While a designer suit with a gem-studded collar will keep you dressy-perfect for a dazzling party, a statement choker necklace will elevate a plain or monotone closed neck detailed party suit.
6. Winter Blues
Go with the flow if you have a fetish for wearing blue to beat winter blues at their own game! Darker shades like navy blue, midnight blue, peacock, and the ones with grey undertones are a complete yes for these super-cool months; after all, it’s good to feel the beauty of winter with its icy palette of blues!
7. Neutral Play
Can’t get over the plushness of whites and creams? Well, I cannot too! Lighter neutral colors look ethereal, and under no circumstances would I want to give up on this soothing palette. One can always fit the creamy colorlessness amidst the winter greys with vivid add-ons. Embroidered or sequined jackets, tie-up printed shrugs, or even a printed Banadhani or silk-woven designer dupatta can work as great add-ons for cream and white salwar suits!
Who said winter is a reason to dress tastelessly? Not at all! Instead, it is a time when you don’t have to worry about getting bogged down by dark colors or heavy fabrics and silhouettes. You can experiment a lot in winter! Adding to your happiness are the current trends of roomy, voluminous skirts, lehengas, floor-length Anarkalis, and gorgeous Indian style party-wear gowns. You can even stand out with an all-red ensemble! Browse all the lovely pro-winter styles and Indian ethnic outfits on Saree.com.
Stay stylish, stay beautiful!
