Fashion Trends That You Cannot Miss This Wedding-Festive Season!
Ivory Is The New Red

Ditching the usual red bridal attires, many celebrity brides like Parineeti Chopra, Kiara Advani, Athiya Shetty and Alia Bhatt chose pastel colours for their big day, this already gave us a hint that nude colours will be trending this wedding-festive season. You can either go for colourful gemstone statement jewellery with pastel shades or keep it minimal with complementing diamond jewellery.
Blingy Pant Suits
If you haven’t realized it yet let us tell you, pantsuits are in vogue now. The Lakmé Fashion Week runway saw various celebrities adorning this Western outfit with a hint of traditional beauty. Embroidered pant suits and pant suits with embellishments in subtle colours like ivory, pale blue and white were seen on the runways. You can also opt for bright-coloured pant suits with minimal designs and embellishments that are perfect for the festive-wedding season. Sequins, laces, frills and organza accents can make your attire look dapper. This comfortable attire is perfect to wear for your sangeet or cocktail function where you will be dancing all night.
The Allure Of Thigh-High Slits
Thigh-high slits add a bold and alluring touch to your look. These bold cuts elevate your feminine fascination. The Lakmé Fashion Week runways saw various celebs and models flaunting this fashion trend. This fashion trend can also be accompanied with your lehenga for the ultra-modern bride vibes.
