To be on Trend – Fall ’14 Part 2

 And for part two only the BEST colour – PINK! No..HOT Pink!!!

IMG_5449-4.JPG

 This is one of the easiest colours to be able to wear within your bridal attire – not only is it gorgeous, but the colour is so complimentary to Red, Green and Cream it could almost just replace the Red.

Here are a few of my favourites..IMG_5501.JPG

This is gorgeous because, although the main colour is pink, the highlights of red make it an amazing alternative for a bridal outfit.

Not your traditional conventional bridal attire, but how AMAZING! the velvet and the flower veins have a Snow White-esque feel and with a slight tweaking of colour – you could be the trendiest Disney bride ever!

This beautiful hot pink and gold brocade lengha would be ideal. Perhaps changing the Dupatta colour to have a gold/ cream base or adding a cream border, would make this more bridal and more traditional. But if you love the pink…you go for it!

This is a Pagli creation which is simply stunning. Simple enough to carry the hot pink, yet heavy enough to be considered bridal. Your secondary dupatta would need to be Cream/ Gold to be able to carry this.

I am absolutely in love with this! The pink has a blue undertone to it which I think makes me love it more! Perfectly simple, perfectly bridal! IF you wanted to feel that little bit more special – throwing some rhinestones and jewels on to it would achieve that! (You can never have too many jewels right?!)

This stunner is a Manish Malhotra  (as if it weren’t obvious). I am in love with the metallics on this outfit! such a nice replacement for gems and jewels. I don’t think I need to say anymore…

I found this photo on Pinterest (yes I am obsessed with Pinterest) and couldn’t get over how gorgeous this design was. The Red features as the main bridal highlight however the pink borders make this style that little more pretty and that little more on trend! I just wish I knew the designer of it!

This is a beautiful lengha to wear if you are going all out for colour – perhaps on a mehndi night or a sangeet. Adding a tulle underlay would make this that little bit more bridal.

This is one of my favourites…Pink, Gold, cream AND jewels…how can you go wrong?! The fishtail style of skirt makes this that little bit more glam.  I would personally shorten the blouse so as not to cover the gorgeous skirt waist detail. Everything about this outfit screams yes!

To conclude our journey to the land of PINK, here is an outfit mixing a couple of the jewelled tones together: Mendhi night you say?

LOVE!

Be Pink!

To be on Trend – Fall ’14 Part 1

As most of you are aware, getting colour into our traditional Indian outfit is quite tricky. Without just putting a few coloured gems into the embellishment or adding a coloured stone necklace, getting this pop of a colour other than red, white or green is fairly challenging.

We are in the Autumn/ Winter phase of the cycle at the moment, and as you may or may not know one of the biggest trends for Fall ’14 are Jewel Tones. This bodes very well for us as the Pantone (colour) chart looks something like this…

Surely there’s only one way to have your hair at your Indian ceremony? In a bun and under your dupatta/ chundri (I’m a guj.)

Here are some pretty styles to make sure your hair looks lovely under it! As long as you have a good hair stylist, these styles will stay under the weight of your outfit! (Hairspray and hair grips will be in abundance of course)
