Wedding wardrobe goes bold
Thursday, November 29, 2012 1:02 PM
Wedding season is round the corner and it's time to look your best. With big fat Indian weddings becoming the flavour of the day, much has changed so far as wedding trousseau is concerned. On D-day, every bride or bridegroom wants to be the headturner. Young Amdavadis are no more taking the traditional route.

Young brides are experimenting and trying newer cuts, fabrics and styles. "Girls, who have it in them, make sure to look sexy during their wedding. Lots of western flavour is incorporated in outfits that brides decide to wear for their functions or on the reception. Layering, minimal embroidery and ornamentation are in this season. Western cuts with traditional touch is what most brides are preferring — variations in skirts, gowns, anarkali dresses with attractive borders and lots of flare will be seen. Comfortable and well structured blouses rule that are noodle strap, halters and backless," says designer Ashish Parikh.

So far as fabric is concerned silk/woven silk has over powered georgette, net and chiffon. Fashion designer Purvi Doshi says, "Lower necklines are a hit with the brides. Fancy and deep back necklines are the trend this season. It is not just the brides even their parents want their daughter to look modern and attractive. Plunging necklines have become fashionable as Amdavadis are inspired by Bollywood films where actors are seen exposing their curves."

On the other hand fashion designer Bhavin Trivedi says, "Girls have been inquiring about sexy blouses, but not many are still ready to go for it. Bride's friends and cousins will be seen flaunting all the long cuts and deep necklines. Backless anarkalis are a rage this wedding season."

Interestingly, even the men want to look dapper and sexy as they get ready to take the wedding vows. Not only do they visit the salons for their makeovers, they also spend a lot of time in choosing their designer wardrobe. "Men will be seen flaunting deep necklines in sherwanis/kurtas. Men usually opt for classic cuts with almost no embroidery. Bandhgalas are in. Variations in jodhpuris, trousers, breeches and patialas will be seen. Men are also combining jackets with their attire to stand out on their special day," says Ashish.

So, it's time to flaunt your looks as you start a new life.
