Receiving a wedding invite is always exciting. The late night partying, the catching up with friends and family, the food etc etc. but the one thing that puts you in a little state of a dilemma is what to wear! Wearing the appropriate attire can be like traversing a minefield. In the western world, it’s tra-ditional for the bride to be dressed in white, but in India, it’s all about the colour red! Be it the bride, her friends, her family they all love to be in red! And why not Red stands for love and emotions.

But then, when the colour is so loved by all there is generally a flood of red in your wardrobe and at the wedding. There has to be a way, that even when wearing red like others, you stand out! And if you have been a bride, your red outfits might be an all-time high. Let’s get creative and let’s inno-vate a few different and fun ways to mix and match Red with other outfits. Here’s a list of some trendy ways to team up red for a wedding.

1. The Red Dupatta

Most fashion designers in Mumbai love dressing up brides in the traditional red colour attires. Why should the guests not be in red then? Use that heavy embroidered dupatta and make the otherwise regular outfit look more heavy and alluring. Perk up your Anarkali or salwar-kameez with your le-henga-choli Dupatta. It’s going to be an ensemble that would make you an absolute Diva.

2. The Red Salwaar-Kameez

Its time to break-up and restyle the Salwaar-Kameez too! Team up the red kameez with a plain long skirt and you’ve created a gorgeous piece.

You can team up a heavy embroidered red Kameez with a beige palazzo or some sleek and straight cigarette pants for a glamorous Indo-Western look. The dhoti pants are very much the in-thing and will surely serve you second looks.

3. The Red Lehenga

Almost every Indian girl and woman surely have a red Lehenga, though years later we wonder, “How could I buy that?” Well, you did. But no sweat. Let’s use it in a way you’ll be proud of your choice again. Wear the entire ensemble separately and be ready to be complimented heavily for this one-of-a-kind look.

a) How about a Shirt?

Wear the embroidered heavily lehenga skirt with a plain collared shirt. An oxidised necklace over the top would complete your look.

b) With a long Kurta

Saving grace if you no longer fit in that choli, that you once flaunted! Team up your lehenga with a long kurta with super long slits, either in front or on the sides. This look adds a splash of contempo-rariness to your traditional attire.

c) A Concept Saree

Concept Sarees are the talk of the town, wear your lehenga and cape the dupatta in a saree style. It’s going to add oodles of elegance to your attire.

d) With a Long Jacket

Choose something in chiffon, georgette or net, the transparent fabric gives your lehenga a new look all together.

e) Sexy Top

Team your red lehenga skirt with a statement top, go for an off-shoulder, a crop top, a trendy cor-set, an embellished bodice. It will add a chic and feminine look to your outfit. Glam on!

4. The Red Choli

If your lehenga blouse or choli has a heavy design, it’s going to be easy pairing it with separates. One fab idea is to team your bridal/ party red choli with a plain lehenga skirt. This twist in the shades will surely bring a modish look. If you want to be extravagant, attach an embellished thick border to the plain lehenga.

a) Choli with a Twist

Another groovy way to utilise the choli is to wear it with a saree. Mix-and-match does the trick! You may choose to go with pastel shades, or even better pair the red choli with a shimmery white saree. It is so pretty and graceful.

5. The Red Sharara

You may want to thank the fashionistas, that shararas are back and unlike before there is so much of betterment! When the traditional pattern meets contemporary style and the outcome is stunning. Prefer a vivid contrast of colours and show off your attire in style. Step up your style game and be ready to have all eyes on you.

6. The Red Kurti

Weddings are great occasions to show your desi-style. Your basic red kurti, with an unusual cut or an asymmetrical hemline, will rock the party if you wear it well, probably with some straight fit pants or palazzos. If you are fond of flowers, go floral in your dressing too. They are definite to give you a new look.

"Wearing Red is easy, you just need to pick the tone that suits your complexion the most. Though weddings are the time to be bold and bright, if you aren’t very comfortable in being so reddy-red, you can keep your make-up and hair-do a little basic. Go easy on accessories. So, it’s time break-up your traditional outfits, get a little creative and break the rules of wear-ing red"as quoted byfashion designers in delhi.

Love what you wear, let your hair down and enjoy the Wedding! Remember, there is surely some shade of red in every woman!!
