The wedding prep is in full swing, the bride’s trousseau is radiant and her treasury of jewels is simply glorious! Now it’s time to focus on you, the bevy of beauties that will be her bridesmaids! Are you going to tweak your traditional attire or take a few risks for that beach wedding?
Fresh off the Lakmé Fashion Week runway, we’ve picked the best bridesmaid looks for you to shine at your best friend’s wedding!
1. Vintage Sportswear pret collection by Ritu Kumar
You don’t have to suffer for fashion. These easy, breezy printed maxis, cropped jackets and skirts from Ritu Kumar’s pret collection ‘Vintage Sportswear’ are everything a beach wedding dreamed of. And what’s more, you’ll be able to party in style and comfort from sundown to sunrise!
2. AMOH by Jade
Deep, saturated, subdued hues and fluid drapes, Jade’s pret collection ‘AMOH’ is meant for the contemporary, free-spirited woman. Arresting midnight blues and royal purples dominated the collection designed to adorn the women who stand beside the bride.
3. Pariah by Pranami
Pariah by Pranami takes the traditional and adds just the right touch of modernity to pique your interest in a silhouette or a motif. Pranami melds her Assamese heritage and global sensibility to bring you lightly embroidered anarkalis, dramatic metallic cocktail gowns and more stand out stunners.
4. Shivan and Narresh
No one does resort wear like Shivan and Narresh. But what if we told you that they extend their clever genus to traditional wear too? If you love striking contemporary silhouettes with a subtle dose of sexy then this collection will thrill you. Pick from the muted shimmer of colour contrasting lehengas, circle skirts and sarees and try not to outshine the bride.
5. Swati Vijayvargie
It is quite something to be able to standout in a huge crowd, illuminating the room with your presence. Swati Vijayvargie’s collection dominated in tones of red, black and gold manifested in patterned salwar kameezes, lehengas and anarkalis. A touch of floral motifs added a subtle allure and is absolutely perfect for a traditional wedding ceremony.
There is something to be said about an understated opulence that glows from within rather than just glints. Vrisa’s beautifully designed floor length anarkalis with velvet dupattas whisper royalty and old world glamour; for the bridesmaid with poise and classic grace.
7.Whimsical by Shica
Throw symmetry and ‘perfectly matched separates’ to the wind and bring whimsy into your wardrobe with the edgy silhouettes of these anarkalis, gowns and lehenga-cholis made accessible in gorgeous tones like pink, grey and silver. We think this line is perfect for the bridal after-party.
Shake things up with a little experimentation and bring a flash of your own personality to the party with Myoho’s collection. The emphasis here is on cut and texture so you get ruffles, immaculate drapery and interesting contrasts between colour and motif. If you’re done with the lehenga-choli same-old-same-old, get inspired by this collection.
9. Divya Sheth
Divya Sheth’s collection was an eye-catching stream of tiered lehengas, mix and match prints and delicate gold embroidery. Replete with the romance of earthy tones in chocolate and dusty rose, the contrast of florals and geometry and layers of sheer over opaque, she manages to conjure a visual divergence between vintage and modern.
10. Architha Narayanan
You can’t escape the touch of romance in Architha Narayanan’s collection of bare-shouldered cholis, silk maxi skirts and simply gorgeous embroidered cropped jackets. We think this collection is perfect for a destination or beach wedding and will make heads turn at a cross-cultural affair. Delightful!
