When it’s your wedding, you want everything to be perfect – the decoration, food and most importantly, the outfit. From fixing your lehenga at your wedding, planning the dance rehearsals and doing everything in between, your bridesmaid does it all. When planning a wedding, picking out an outfit for your bridesmaid is as important and difficult as the bride’s outfit. You’d want them to be beautiful and uber comfy as it is your bridesmaid who would constantly be on her toes and available at your beck and call.
Since it's the girl tribe that represents the bride, it is important that they stay ahead of the game in chic, comfortable fashion. Here is a compilation of outfits for the bridesmaids that they would love to wear even after the wedding.
Kaftans are all the rage this wedding season. This breezy silhouette is an epitome of comfort and has a head turning appeal. Kaftan has been associated with loungewear or resort wear in the past but that is no lounge the case. People are opting for printed, embroidered, embellished and voluminous kaftans for weddings as they are comfortable, stylish and mainly because they are different from the traditional lehengas, shararas and sarees.
You can have so much fun while styling a kaftan as there are no rules as to how to wear them. You can wear an ornate belt to accentuate your waist and give your outfit a shape, or you can wear them with bottoms or without. You can either wear traditional jewellery or layer up with many elegant pieces depending on the occasion. Take your kaftan for a spin!
Skirt with jacket
Being a bridesmaid is a perfect time to experiment with your looks as it will make you stand out from the crowd. Mixing and matching what you already own in your closet is a clever way to put together an outfit that is different, making you look gorgeous.
Pick a flowy skirt and team it with a crop top or a form fitting blouse and wear a contrasting long jacket. You can also go monochromatic and complete the look with a same colour sheer jacket for a more feminine look.
Anarkalis are a form of traditional clothing that makes for an excellent bridesmaid outfit.The history of an Anarkali suit dates back to the sixteenth century when it was introduced by the Mughals.
Pick an Anarkali suit with sequins or beads or anything metallic like zardozi or gota work as they are in trend this year for a regal look. It can be worn with a churidar, sharara or a palazzo and is the most practical and convenient piece of clothing. Chand balis or chandelier earrings worn with anarkalis look iconic and stylish.
Tulip pants – kurta
Tulip pants, also commonly known as dhoti pants, are a modern twist and a revamped version of the salwar kameez. This includes a peplum, asymmetric kurtas, kaftan top or an angrakha kurta and a dhoti style salwar. Adding a jacket or a shrug only adds to its beauty. They are convenient, easy to wear and uber chic.
These pants are pleated at the waist which gives ample room for movement around your thighs and tapers down towards the ankle. The ease and comfort are why it’s the perfect outfit for any bridesmaid. Team it up with a chunky clutch and juttis to elevate your look.
For every bride, there is a bridesmaid. While the attention is on the lady of the evening, it is always the bridesmaid who elevates the fashion quotient of the wedding. The hype and the fun are all integral to a bridesmaid and it is vital that her fashion quotient remains top notch.
