The lehenga has forever been an Indian wedding favourite! A graceful skirt paired with a delicate dupatta and an embellished blouse has found a soft corner in every women’s heart. Colours may change with seasons and years, influencing designer kids wear as well as bridal wear, however the essence of a lehenga is retained in every design. Of late, the ladies are up for donning colours other than reds, pinks and maroons – playing around with colours has never been more fun! This winter season is all about bold colours that make a statement.
Read on to know more about the hottest colours of the season and set the temperatures soaring at an upcoming wedding:
1. Royal Blue
Don’t be afraid to go bold with royal blue- a colour that speaks of confidence. The hue goes well with gold, beige and maroon which can enhance the overall look of an attire. This stunner from the Tarun Tahiliani Bridal Collection is one for the contemporary bride. The flowing skirt in chanderi silk is paired with a blue sleeveless blouse which has a mandarin collar. Wear golden jhumkis or chaand balis to complete the look.
2. Vibrant Fuschia
If you find the traditional pink boring, go haute with the vibrant fuchsia – you won’t find a shade more perfect for the winter weddings. You can go with an all fuchsia look, or bring in elements of beige or light grey to create a striking contrast. This beauty by Rohit Bal is all about celebrating the colour- a gorgeous fuschia corset with a chanderi lehenga in matching shades with extensive brocade work. It is paired with a delicate dupatta in net.
3. Emerald Green
Another bold colour that looks magnificent is emerald green. Historically associated with the royals, emerald green stands out under the winter sun. Anita Dongre’s lehenga set in silk is best worn for winter weddings. With luxurious work in gota, dori, sequins, pearls and zardozi, the skirt is paired with a blouse featuring a sweetheart neckline and embroidered net dupatta to be wrapped around the arms.
