Hello ladies! With the shaadi season still on and so many wedding invites staring you in the face, you all definitely have a lot of shopping to do for ethnic outfits to dress up for the unending sangeet, cocktail and mehendi functions you’re planning to attend.
Well then, wait! Have you ever thought of looking at the pile of clothes stashed away in your wardrobe? What if we tell you that you don’t have to spend all that money on buying clothes you’ll hardly ever wear again.
Here are 4 ways to glam up for a sangeet, mehendi or cocktail function, without going on a shopping spree, using the clothes you already have.
Collared shirt or corset and matching skirt
Pair your favourite formal shirt or even a dressy corset with a matching paneled skirt in a similar colour, styled with a cocktail ring and statement earrings. Wear some nude heels to tone down the bling and you’re ready to make heads turn.
Sequined top and harem pants
A sequined or embroidered top with embellished cuffs or collar and shoulder details, paired with harem pants in a festive blush, rose gold or beige colour, will look both glam and sophisticated. Opt for some golden hoops and beige heels to complete the look.
Sheer, floral or lace crop top and maxi skirt
Why not pair a delicate embroidered lace crop top or a sheer floral crop top in pastel hues with a maxi skirt in a similar colour or even a contrasting shade, to create a no fuss chic look. Although this outfit is fuss free and comfortable to wear, it looks contemporary and elegant. Put on some statement earrings and carry a dainty clutch to complete the look.
Crop top and palazzos
How about pairing a silk, organza or sheer crop top with bright coloured or maybe some neutral palazzos? This is a go to outfit when you’re too busy to go through all the hassle of putting together a more dressed up look. Style this look with a golden clutch and some festive sandals.
