Author:Sumaira Nabeel

Rocking a South Asian look in winters is surely a challenge!  Along with the weather change comes the  dreadful realization  that we cant wear our trendy backless cholis, the waist highlighting lehengas and that dress with a plunging neckline, which were our  summer jewels. Though Its very easy to layer up and still look trendy and elegant in western wear, the true dilemma is when you would have to hide your ultra glam outfit underneath layers of winter wear.

If you want to make a fashion statement at your winter event follow these guidelines to create an irresistible ensemble for winters

 - Layering up:

Layering is an advocated look for winter and you can bring the drama of layers in the Indian winter wedding dresses. The premium fashion shows have been celebrating the layered look on Indian attires. Jackets and capes on shalwar suits, sarees and lehengas look uber elegant. You can always experiment with different lengths of jackets on palazzos, trousers and skirts as well, to get the perfect Indian wedding look.

 - Blousing it up:

When it comes to an Indian wedding, sarees and lehengas are usually the favourites. A perfect blouse always builds the saree or the lehenga look. So, Indian winter wedding dresses need the accent of a sleeved blouse to enhance the glamour.

Keep your daring backless and sleeveless cholis for warmer weathers. A well coordinated blouse with ample coverage can also uplift the wedding look. The blouse can have amazing embellishments, panelling or hue play. Choose the right blouse to display the look that best describes you, like a traditional bejewelled blouse, a contemporary sleek blouse or an updated fusion one.

For a blouse, coordination is key, and a perfect matching blouse is the ultimate makeover for Indian winter wedding dresses.

- Warmer Fabrics

It is better to consider warmer fabrics like silk, satin, thick georgette or velvet for Indian winter wedding dresses. These fabrics will offer the needed warmth, giving equal regard to the festive look that you intend to put on. The dual benefit can also be achieved through fabrics like brocade for a winter wedding.

Even if you are opting for lighter fabrics like chiffon and net, feeling partial to their stunning cascade, ensure that the attire uses thick lining materials to keep you warm.

- Separates:

Using warm separates is an ideal way to accentuate and glamourize your look. Whether its by taking your  Pashminas or a velvet shawl over your dress to opting for a contrasting pants made of Jacuard or velvet fabric, it’s a foolproof way to jazz up your south Asian look.

 - Anarkalis

Anarkalis with their long floor grazing lengths, churidar pants and stole make for perfect Indian winter wedding dresses. Long sleeved, and collared or high neck, anarkalis are suitable for lower temperatures. The Anarkali look can be taken up a notch up with well paired jackets or shawls.

- Western Inspired Fusion Outfits

Outfits with western silhouettes can also become picks for alluring winter wedding looks. Jackets or tunics with leggings, trousers or dhoti pants and long skirts paired with trendy winter blouses can become wonderful Indian winter wedding dresses.  Another great option would be floor length gowns with sufficient conceal on the top.

An extra insurance of thermals and stockings underneath the uber luxury outfits can retain the comfort factor when the temperatures are dipping. Pair your looks with traditional toe covering footwear and you are all ready for an Indian winter wedding.

For fashion to be sustainable, comfort and wearability play important roles and the Indian winter wedding dresses aim at optimising these factors. So this winter wedding season, stay warm and cosy while nailing the looks with Indian winter wedding dresses.
