If you have a wedding coming up and you’re still scrolling through Pinterest and Instagram to find yourself the perfect outfit, we understand your struggle. Because looking like a complete patakha at desi weddings is the ultimate goal. And how else are you going to spam your Insta fam if you’re not twirling in slo-mo in a gorgeous outfit? We did some digging for you and found amazing cocktail party dresses and outfit ideas. Here’s some inspiration from Instagram content creators on how to rock it!
1. Pair a printed saree with a sleek blouse
We love how breezy, elegant, and chic this outfit looks! Pick a printed saree from your or your mom’s closet and pair it with a sexy blouse or crop top. Add some minimal jewellery pieces, neutral heels, and you are ready to go!
2. Channel the power of monochrome
Monochrome outfits look extremely stylish and glamorous. And if you aren’t planning on going completely desi, this look is just perfect for you. If you have a gorgeous fringe or sequins dress, pair it with a matching pair of pants and a plain dupatta. Finish off your look with a classy handbag, matching heels, and jewellery.
3. Choose comfortable silhouettes and statement jewellery
If you are someone who loves comfortable and breezy silhouettes, this outfit will serve you well. You can simply pair a minimal suit with statement jewellery and footwear as a cocktail party dress. And you can go for clean and minimal makeup with a bold lip to finish off your look!
4. Play around with a co-ord set
Co-ord sets are comfy, chic, and great to style. So, if you are looking to give your co-ord set a little upgrade, you can totally turn it into a cocktail party dress. Pair your favourite set with some chunky silver jewellery and contrast footwear, and you are ready to dazzle. And don’t forget to get some slo-mo shots!
5. Mix and match to get the right fit
One of the best and most clever ways to use a sharara set is to mix and match it with different pieces. Get that sharara out and pair it with a matching or contrast crop top for a stylish outfit. Add some statement jewellery to the look and you have a head-turning cocktail party outfit!
6. Go for the subtle glam
If you want to go for a minimalistic look and subtle glam, this look is just perfect for you. Find a glamourous and sexy crop top to pair with a simple flared skirt. You can add a long jacket or wear it as it is. Just add some dainty jewellery pieces to complete your look along with some matching footwear.
7. Experiment with a power suit
Cocktail outfits are all about experimenting and creating new looks. And if you don’t like to stick to a conventional outfit, this is just what you need. Bring out that power suit, get some Indian jewellery, a statement clutch, some strappy heels, and that’s all that you need!
8. Bring out some sequins
Sequins bring out all the glamour, oomph, and drama in an outfit. Go bold with an edgy crop top and pair it with matching sequinned pants. It’s a stunning outfit when you’re trying to make a statement. Pair it with bold earrings, a classy clutch, elegant pencil heels, and you will have a head-turner cocktail party dress ready!
