10 Wardrobe Essentials for Indian Brides
Wedding season is coming soon and as all the gorgeous brides to be are gearing up for their big day, so I planned create a list of the Wardrobe essentials for Indian Brides. Although we love our denims and dresses to the core but when we have any family celebration or festivals we go back to our loved traditional wear. Likewise, newly weds in India have to attend many family functions and pooja ceremonies, so the ethnic wardrobe of Indian brides should have a good variety of ethnic clothes. So that whenever they have to deck up in traditional wear they look classy and elegant.Here are some essentials your Indian wear wardrobe needs, so that you can take on the upcoming festive season in style.
Wardrobe Essentials for Indian Brides:
- Party Wear Anarkali Suits:
Anarkali Suits have become an inseparable part of Indian Ethnic wardrobe. They are in trend for years and still I don’t see any signs of these Anarkali suits going out of fashion. Many Bollywood celebrities have been spotted in Anarkali suits every now and then. Anarkali suits flatter Indian brides like nothing else. They give a rich royal look and exudes opulence. They are more than perfect for a family get-together , Diwali party or even wedding functions. Indian brides must have a classic anarkali suit in her traditional wardrobe.
- Colorful Kurta:
It can be exhausting to wear heavy suits or sarees to the kitchen or all day functions and for new Indian Brides it could be a pain to work in kitchen when it is already burning hot. Now, you don’t have to compromise with your comfort as you can opt for Lightweight cotton Kurtas. There is a humongous collection of ethnic Kurta in every Indian Ethnic Brand. Pick any Bright colorful Kurta in easy breezy fabric like cotton, Chiffon etc. Biba has a beautiful collection Kurtas. W has some fun prints, and if you want to ace your Kurta game go for Chikankari embroidery kutras which are a must have for your ethnic wardrobe. You can pair kurta with leggings, jeans or patialas and be comfortable without compromising with your style.
- Saree Blouse:
Indian Brides must have a readymade Sari blouse in universal colors like gold, black, cream with embellishments or embroidery that will easily go with any saree. If you want to up your style one for a Sheer Saree blouse with deep cut back details. You can even opt for color blocking by picking contrasting shades and look trendy. Make sure you have proper Bra to go with deep back blouses.
Legging are women’s best friend and I would like to send a million thanks to whoever invented leggings. I remember I always had a hard time getting Churidars stitched with a perfect fit. Because either they were too tight to wear or too loose like a pyjama. But with leggings I never went back to stitched churidaars. They fit perfectly and are available in large number of shades in any Indian Ethnic Brand. Pick some bright shades that you can pair with kurtas or tunics. Mix and match .. and you are done!
- Indo Western Clutch:
After being decked up in your favorite outfit, add a nice clutch to finish up your look. This is where you can add a vibrant bling in the form of a clutch and even a simple Salwar suit ethnic look will get transformed to an edgy one. You need these clutches in basic shades of gold ( must have), silver and black that will go with everything.
- Multipurpose Dupatta:
You don’t always have to shop for dupattas with every Kurti you buy. A colorful versatile dupatta will make even a simple salwar suit look stylish and royal. You can easily mix and match dupattas with your ethnic wardrobe. Also, you have multiple options to choose from where you can go for a heavily embroidered Bandhani with mirror work, silk or phulkari dupatta. For winters, you can go for shawls or stoles.
- Ethnic Skirt:
A beautiful, bright skirt can be a great option for your family outings with cousins and friends. Skirts will make you look stylish and sassy even in desi avatar. You can pair ethnic skirts with crop tops or tank tops for a more comfortable yet modish look. Or pair it with an ethnic blouse and a dupatta for a mix and matched lehenga.
- Ethnic Flats / Jutis:
For a comfortable yet stylish look you must have some traditional jutis in your wardrobe. Though heels look wonderful but if it is going to be a long day with lots of walking around these comfortable ethnic flats comes to the rescue. You can look fab without compromising on your style quotient. You can even pair them with western wear for a nice twist.
- Traditional Jewellery:
No traditional look is complete without a pair of jhumkas. Indian brides must have traditional jewellery pieces in their collection like Jhumkis/temple earrings, statement rings, maang tikkas and a kundan neck piece. These are some of the must have traditional jewellery for Indian Brides.
- Makeup Essentials:
Brides don’t need to hoard a lot of makeup because if you are not into makeup most of your makeup items will remain untouched. Indian brides must have liquid sindoors, a red, pink and a basic nude lipstick, a smudge proof Black kohl and makeup base that suits your complexion. As always, you can buy more as and when required.
So, these are some wardrobe must-haves that every Indian bride especially modern Indian bride must have. Complete your wardrobe with these essentials and nobody can stop you from looking gorgeous every time you deck up in your ethnic outfits.
