The wedding season has begun and it’s time to primp up. Whether you are a social butterfly whose calendar is  full of wedding invitations or you have a few weddings of friends and family coming up, you always want to look your best. Amp up your style quotient with these 10 winter wedding styles. Get ready to slay it.

1. Ethnic Gown

Get inspired by Manish Malhotra’s embroidery and mirror work gown. Saves you from the hassle of wearing a saree, but retains the traditional touch. If you are getting it tailor made, go for an off shoulder look. A sheer dupatta draped over your shoulders, will help you keep the chill away.

2. Cape It

Indeed, on or off the ramp, capes are a sure winner. Wear it as a blouse or a top or with your choli, it is sure to turn heads when you make an entry. Look at this gorgeous piece from Anita Dongre – the muted green and white are clearly not colours we would choose for a wedding. Yet the understated look is doing wonders here.

3. Flower Power

Florals were big last season and they are sure to heat up things next year too. We are lusting after this Varun Bahl creation currently. Throw in some heavy Jhumkas or Chand Bali and you are ready to rock.

4. Can’t go wrong with an Anarkali

Heavily embroidered Anarkalis are here to stay. Make sure the cut is clean and makes you look sexy, like this Suneet Varma outfit. If the embroidery is too heavy, steer clear from heavy jewellery and wear just one stunning but subtle piece that won’t take the limelight off your Anarkali.

5. Choose Pastels to Stand Out from the Crowd

Our weddings are amazingly colourful. But when everybody else is decking up in gold, maroon, orange and all sorts of vibrant colours, choose pastels if you want to be different. Pastel colours are trending currently. This light green shade in a lehenga choli by Anushree Reddy is  our latest crush. Take some hint from the model and keep your makeup minimum with these colours.

6. If You Must do Gold, Pair it with Grey

Grey is a beautiful neutral colour that can be versatile. We can’t stop drooling over this Pooja Rajpal Jaggi creation. Look at how beautiful gold looks when paired with grey. A word of caution though, you might just make the bride jealous if you walk in wearing anything inspired by this outfit.

7. We Can’t Stay Away from our Silks and Warm Colours Though

Being trendy does make you stand out, but when you want to feel beautiful just go with your guts and choose the colours you love. The warm tones look lovely on the Indian complexion, and it would be a shame not to wear them for a wedding. This orange Anarkali  from Bhumika Grover can be the perfect piece to wear for a Haldi ceremony. Pick vibrant colours and contrast them. This is a big trend this season.

8. When in Doubt, Wear Red

Red is a stunning colour, but if you do wear it, make sure your outfit does not have heavy works on it. Since red is the colour for the bride too, keep yours simple. Some lace-work or ruffles will do wonders to your outfit, like this Nayana Raheja creation.

9. Banarasi Gets a Makeover

Ekaya has been doing some magnificent work with Banarasi silks and sarees. Soak in the tradition and deck up in a bright hued Banarasi lehenga or a saree, whatever floats your boat.

10. Sheer is Sexy

As weddings are formal functions, a little of bit of sheer near your neckline or on your back will definitely make you look hot without being tacky. This gorgeous cobalt blue outfit by Malasa is giving us some fashion goals.  If you do try this, stay away from neck pieces and go for bangles or bracelets. This will accentuate the sheer part of your dress.
