Ethnic Wear for Weddings

Dare To Go Different With Your Ethnics? Give These Trends A Shot This Wedding Season (The Kraftly Edit)

Hola Amigos!

How are the weddings treating you this season? Cool breeze,  ethnics, bling and then some more bling. And FOOD, I mean how can someone forget Food . Ahh FOODGASM!  Anyhoo, Coming to Weddings *Sorry Food, I’m coming to you in a while* , dressing up is both fun & the most mentally exhausting task of the year. After all you have to amp up your dressing year on year and bring your best fashion foot forward . Aakhir Cousins, Friends, Cousins ke Cousins, Friends ke Friends, un sabke Cousins aur Friends ko jalane ka sawaal hai. #SNEAKY SMIRK ON#

I have a friend’s wedding coming up in December (Sripee you readin’?) and I’m going crazy deciding what to wear. It is a Bengali sundowner wedding and I’ve never been to one. Typical Delhi Weddings are high on bling and glitter and no matter how overboard you go with your dressing, you’ll definitely be blinded with flashy aunties and cousins of the couple feeling all subtle and understated (Kaala Chasma Need Alert!).  But Bengali Weddings my friends seem like a completely different affair sensing from what I’ve heard.  I don’t want to go there and feel all eyes rolling on me. So I’ve shortlisted a few options which are blingy yet elegant and would fit in almost all kinds of weddings (and we have a lot of kinds in India). If you also feel lost when it comes to dressing up for weddings & stuff and hate the idea of getting into that WeighMeDown Anarkali or TripNFall Saree then you have come to the right place. Me @ Blame It On Makeup have a solution for everything. Yeah I can twitch my nose and all is right in the world (Were you obsessed with Bewitched like me while growing up?). I dare you to try these cool new dressing trends this wedding season and bathe in those compliments galore.

Bring out the corporate chic in you with Silk Cigarette Pants & Floor Length Kurtas/jackets

These are definitely a winner and embrace all body types. You can go for straight fittled ankle length pants in fabrics like Raw Silk, Brocade & Banarsi Silk and team them up with floor length Anarkalis/Kurtas. Just make sure that your Kurtas have really long Side or front slits up to your waist to add to that oomph.

Straight Pants with Kurta for Weddings

Show off that mid riff that you have been working on for the weddings in crop tops and skirts (Abs Abs Baby!)

This trend is going to stay this season. So Go Indo-Western by mixing pieces in dark solid colors. Think Oxblood, Teal, Marsala, Violet, Black! Choose geometric & abstract prints if you are really into patterns.

Crop Top & Skirt for Weddings

Reach out for unique silhouettes & pre drapes

Believe me when I say everyone is bored of seeing those age old typical anarkalis, lehngas & sarees.  Act pricey and invest in structured & pre draped silhouettes which will make you stand out in the crowd.

Blame it on Makeup Tip: Do not shy away from mixing metallics together- Gold & Silver, Bronze & Gold, Gunmetal & Silver. Try earthy pastels which you have been running from because your mom says “ye to bahut dull hai shaadi ke liye” (Take a cue from Pakistani Brides, One Word- GORG).  And lastly, Keep your contouring to minimum and play with that highlight to give you a natural looking glow & flush.
