How to look gorgeous at a Winter Wedding | Shre Jewellery

23 January, 2018

Hello hello, lovelies! How’s Tuesday treating you by far? I have had 3 cups of coffee already, so now you can guess how my chilly Tuesday looks like. But writing the most requested post makes it a little better. Yes, after almost struggling, procrastinating and daydreaming about kinds of stuff that are not gonna happen anytime soon for 3 weeks, I am finally sharing two looks for a winter wedding.  My 15 years old-self used to hate winters because, to be honest, it used to get monotonous, boring and gloomy with a very few outfit options. I used to hate it, even more, when I had to dress up for a wedding. Wearing a sweater over my fancy kurta was a no-no! Only God knows how many golgappe’s I have missed because of this *insert a facepalm emoji*.  But things have changed this time around and they have changed for good. If your heart wanted to scream “that’s so me” when you read the above lines then my love, you are going to enjoy this post. So, if you have some weddings that you were thinking to skip, then stop right there. I am not going to let your colorful and vibrant sarees lie on the back of your wardrobe this year while keeping the cold at bay. So, girls, to get you out of the winter wedding outfit struggle, here are some tips and looks. Use them to look gorgeous and stay warm!

The Turtle Neck Look

Do you remember the time when our aunts used to wear turtlenecks with sarees? As a kid I never let my mom do that because honestly, I hated it way back then. But now, the tables have turned; I’d make everyone at my home wear this ensemble. All thanks to the comeback of vintage fashion and the rise of turtlenecks. Every time I went out for winter shopping this year, I came back with at least one turtleneck. Guess someone’s obsessing over them lately. And by the time winter ends, I think I will have a turtleneck in every color lol.

Coming to the look, I went total desi. I always wanted to dress up all Indian with gajra and bindi but failed due to my inclination towards “Basics”. I am a pastel-colored saree, sleeveless blouse kinda person. Something my go-to but I ditched it this time. Instead, went for a yellow and red silk saree. As I have always said, black is a failsafe color, so paired the saree with a black turtleneck top. Can never fail to talk about how accessories can change the overall look of an outfit and especially when it’s ethnic, you cannot miss out on them. Accessories are meant to complement your outfit and for this, I have paired a stunning and statement pair of red earrings by Shre Jewellery. You can check it out here.

A lot of us are pretty much apprehensive when it comes to statement earrings at times but with some simple tips and tricks, you can don it like a boss. I wanted my earrings to complement my saree and that is why the color red. Being a little extra is nice and fresh at times, no? This pair of hangs goes well with colorful and extremely ethnic clothes. Since my earrings are enough to make a statement; I added a simple chain on the top of my turtleneck. Now, rolling out the best part of the look (for which I was hella excited) gajra guys! I have always adored it but never tried it and the story remains the same because my gajra apparently went on a tour to my dad’s office (I forgot it in the car). All I could do is to make a gajra out of white flowers which didn’t look even close to it, but I am secretly kinda proud of the way it came out to be.  A classic middle parting with a low bun adorned with white flowers brought the perfect wedding vibes. Didn’t they? If you are someone who loves colors, then you can definitely opt for this look.

The Classic White and Golden Look

I can never get over the sass and panache of an Indian saree. Except for the drapes, grace, and sophistication, there’s one thing that makes me stick to sarees when it comes to Indian Weddings and that is the fact that one saree can be put forward in different styles. Isn’t that great? Sarees are no longer an Indian-ethnic amour but now it has changed its meaning and has become a universal piece of admiration and that is why I thought, I’d stick to a saree for this look as well.

Since the day my mom bought this absolutely gorgeous white saree with golden borders, I was fully convinced that I’d definitely do a blog about it and what better time to pull it off than this winter weddings? Because #tistheseason guys. The blue crop top was lying around my wardrobe for a long time. The side strap embroidery, the short length, and bishop sleeves make it experiment worthy. Now, comes the tricky part, how did I wear it? Well, the drape is same as of a normal saree style but instead of draping the pallu from my right side of the waist to the left side of my shoulder straight, I took the pallu from my right-hand side shoulder, pinned it like a dupatta in the middle and finally pinned it along the right side of my shoulder. It’s easy, different and everyone will take a good amount of time to figure it out, so all the attention on you!

Now, can you see how much I am obsessed with the straight middle parting hairstyle? Well, you can guess it from here. For the accessories, I chose this peacock jhumka earring that is inspired by nature from Shre Jewellery. Check out their collection here. The exquisite peacocks will sure shot make you the fashion icon of the event (If the saree wasn’t enough). The designs, beads and the carvings are definitely worth noticing. A golden necklace to add to the charm of the earrings and lastly putting a ring on my finger to finish the look. My makeup was subtle and the look although had a bohemian touch because of the top, yet still looks elegant.

      For me turtlenecks are always the "in" thing. But for many, they feel its outdated. But fashion repeats itself and I am so glad that turtlenecks are back again!

    My mother's friends wore sprees every day and I always marveled at the intricate drapes and folds. I have never worn one myself but love the exquisite fabrics and the intricate designs with embroidery or beadwork. My favorite here would have to be the white and gold saree that looks very elegant
